Ashley and Alberto’s June 27th wedding was, factually speaking, their third marriage ceremony. The couple was first married in a civil ceremony in Ecuador, home to Alberto’s family, followed by a church ceremony and reception. The whole wedding party and both immediate families flew to Ecuador for the big events, testament to how close Ashley and Alberto are to their family and friends. And while you might suspect that the emotion and celebration would have waned a bit by wedding #3, not so… the proof is in the pictures.
The American ceremony and reception took place at the Queenstown Harbor Golf Course in Queenstown, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Beyond the course is a historic house where the ceremony was set up to face the water with a tent awaiting the reception nearby. The breeze was so strong that I felt a slight chill standing in the sun beside the water despite my black dress, talk about an great venue for a summer wedding!
While Ashley was upstairs watching guests arrive through the window her Blackberry rang an alarm, we all cracked up:
The day was made up of many inviting details including lovely Latin style fans set out on the ceremony chairs and an irresistable cupcake station with several flavors for guests to choose from. Laura of R&R Catering and Events in the City made sure all the details were in their perfect place.
