Kent Manor Inn Wedding Ceremony: Laura + Kevin

I have previously covered Laura and Kevin’s engagement session near Chestertown, Maryland, therefore it’s a privilege for me to finally feature their wedding photos. If you have not followed the story on how these two met, you should definitely check out their pre-wedding photo session where they used their favorite football team apparels, the Redskins.

Laura and Kevin wanted to get married on the waterfront, and both favored the idea of an outdoor ceremony. When they found Kent Manor, it was a no-brainer. The grounds are beautifully and meticulously attended to, completed with the perfect view by The Garden House. They were so thrilled with the way everything turned out!

It has always been my favored moments when the Bride and Groom decided to first meet in private before the ceremony. You will discover why from the series of pictures below.

The lovely hand bouquets for the bridesmaids and the Bride. I don’t think I have ever seen floral bouquets with such a mix of vibrant colors. Mostly are usually using pastel colors. These bouquets are strikingly beautiful.
