When Sean Garrity met Anna Frey, through mutual friends from college, he was instantly smitten. “I thought Anna was beautiful, had a great sense of humor, and seemed like a genuinely nice person,” says Sean, who works in federal affairs for a medical society. Anna reciprocated the attraction, and they had their first date at an outdoor concert. Seven years into their romance, Sean proposed to Anna, who works in commercial construction, on Christmas Day at her family house. For their wedding, 11 months later, the couple opted for an Eastern Shore inspired wedding full of nautical touches and thoughtful details.
