We haven' t been to a wedding at USNA since we were married their 7 years ago. When Doug and Emma sent us a save the date card we marked it on our calendars and made a hotel reservation. Yes, I left Chloe for the first time overnight. Only because it was with my parents and I know she is comfortable with them at their house. I am no wedding photographer, but here are a few pictures from the ceremony.
This is the Ann Taylor dress I finally settled on wearing and the shoes I had to have Chad pick up at Tysons Corner on our drive up to MD. I had such a hard time finding shoes that went with this dress. The darkest color in the dress is a gray/brown color called sable. Only Ann Taylor had shoes in that color. I tend to make this mistake often. I buy a cute outfit and get it home and realize I have no shoes to go with it, so it sits in my closet until I find something. Then I never feel like I have things to wear because I don't complete my outfits. I think I need to start my outfits from the feet up. Pulling "the look" all together is not my strong suit.

Welcome to the Navy!
After this we headed off to a fun reception at the DoubleTree Hotel. We had a really good time seeing everyone and catching up. We definitely decided that when Chad retires we want to settle in Annapolis. It has changed so much for the better. I got lazy and left my camera in the hotel room for the reception. And I only called to check on Chloe 1 time that whole night!
