Matapeake Beach Wedding Ceremony: Allison + Aaron

It was last year in Autumn when Allison and Aaron did their engagement photo session at Annapolis downtown harbor, Eastport, and Quiet Waters Park. At last their wedding day came, and I was really excited to be their photographer, finally was able to photograph their beautiful wedding.

Their wedding was at Matapeake Beach in Stevensville, Kent Island, which was one of the cool venues in Eastern Shore Maryland with gorgeous waterfront view of the Chesapeake Bay.

For the getting ready, the Bride and Groom, the whole wedding party and their families were at the Hilton Garden Inn Kent Island, at Kent Narrows on the Grasonville side.
