Kent Manor Inn Wedding Reception: Laura + Kevin

After the beautiful wedding ceremony at the Historic Kent Manor Inn, Laura and Kevin continued with their fun-filled wedding reception at Kent Manor Inn.

Some tender moments ensued during the dance between the Father of the Bride and Laura, also when Kevin danced with the Mother of the Bride.

But the rest of the evening was simply superb, fun and memorable.

Laura and Kevin’s first dance, full of exchanging smiles and loving stares between the couple. The song “All of Me” by John Legend was just perfect to describe their love for each other.

The Best Man’s toast speech was one of the most touching speeches I’ve ever heard. He told me that he didn’t prepare or even rehearsed it. It all came out spontaneously.
