Courtney and Eddie are two people who just deserve to be married. Because of Eddie’s commitment to our country, these two have put miles on their relationship. They have Skyped and bought expensive plane tickets for years all over the states including Florida, DC and now finally are settled in their new home in North Carolina. 

Courtney wanted to plan a day that represented both of their families and individual stories that led them to one another. They tied the knot feet away from Eddie’s college dorm at the USNA Chapel and the decor was inspired by magnolia flowers, a bloom that little Courtney would grow in the family garden back home in Florida. 

The whole day was filled with love and custom hand rolled cigars! They celebrated under a white tent at the William Paca House and the rain held out for portraits in the Superintendent’s Garden! In true Top Gun fashion, the groomsmen sang “Lost that Lovin Feelin'” and the couple was waved off with a flag exit to the chanting of ‘God Bless America’.
