Kim and Jake met four years ago while playing kickball together in a local league. They wed at Historic London Town and Gardens. "We wanted the wedding to be laid-back and fun, so we used bright colors and preppy details," says Kim. She wore a Mikaella Bridal gown from Annapolis Formal & Tuxedos paired with diamond and pearl earrings that were a wedding-day gift from the groom. "Jake sent them to the hotel where we were getting ready," Kim says. For their first dance, the couple selected "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne; DJ Al Wysong provided the music. "I was so glad that Jake and I decided to see each other before the ceremony," says Kim. "We were able to take all our wedding portraits beforehand, which allowed us to really enjoy each other's company the entire evening."
