Surrounded by their closest friends and family from all over the country, Trista and Thomas exchanged their vows to each other in the gorgeous Naval Academy Chapel earlier this month. Their ceremony was followed by a fun filled reception at the Academy’s Alumni House – Ogle Hall.
Trista and Thomas are both active duty Naval Officers. In fact, Thomas was overseas, but he was able to come back for a few days for his wedding!
The couple chose to do a first look prior to their ceremony. We had lots of time for photos all around the Naval Academy!
They met online on eHarmony. Thomas proposed on a bike ride while wearing a custom made t-shirt with nautical flags printed on it that spelled out “Trista, will you marry me?” Once Trista figured it out, he got down on one knee!
Congratulations, newlyweds! It was an honor to capture your love!
