A Classic Spring Wedding at the Tidewater Inn

Megan & Evan

The third time was the charm for these two! After two postponements due to COVID and a very uncertain forecast leading up to the big day, Megan and Evan finally got the perfect wedding they deserved. Their closest friends and family gathered at the Tidewater Inn in Easton, MD to celebrate a day that’s been anticipated by so many for a long time. Megan and Evan have been together for eight years and already have two adorable children, Bradley and Oliver, so it definitely felt like a day that was a long time coming!

A few days beforehand, I noticed that the forecast looked … awful for Sunday. And not just a little light rain scattered throughout the day, either. We’re talking severe storm warnings all day, downpours, and dangerous winds. We kept an eye on the forecast throughout the day, praying for pockets of drizzle that we could work with for portraits. Megan and Evan’s wedding day is literally Exhibit A for why having a first look is SO important! With plenty of portrait time built into the timeline prior to the ceremony, we knew we’d be able accomplish all the portraits they were envisioning even with rain – it’d just be a matter of when the weather would allow us to sneak outside.

Somehow, despite the odds, not a SINGLE drop of rain fell until after sunset on their wedding day! In fact, the sun even peeked out at one point! I honestly can’t believe we got so lucky, but I am SO thankful. Megan and Evan are two of the most kind and caring people you could ever meet, and they absolutely deserved the amazing weather.

In some ways, that uncertain forecast giving way to a beautiful day perfectly encapsulates their engagement, too. With two kids already in tow, they’ve already weathered so many of life’s storms together and come out even stronger on the other side. I’ll never forget how gracious they were last spring when COVID forced them to cancel their original wedding date. Megan and Evan valued the health and safety of their guests more than anything, and they knew this incredible day would be worth waiting for.

Their wedding day was filled with beautiful moments with the people they love most. Their daughter, Bradley, bounced back and forth between the bride and groom’s suites, spending time with each of her parents before the ceremony. Megan and Evan chose to read their vows to each other in private during their first look, which was both emotional and hilarious as Megan had just written hers that morning!

After the year we’ve had, Megan and Evan’s wedding felt like a breath of fresh air. It reminded all of us there that there are better days ahead if we just focus on what’s most important – each other. Megan and Evan, thank you for trusting me to document this day for you.
