Kent Island Wedding: Kristin + Matt

On their first date, Matthew and Kristin were comparing their favorite English desserts.  While she was a fan of Yorkshire curd tarts, he suggested she someday try sticky toffee pudding, a much superior dessert in his opinion. The day before Matthew and Kristin were engaged, they enjoyed dinner at Fisherman’s Inn in Chester, Kent Island, MD. That night, they thoroughly savored the crab cakes served there, and to make the meal complete, they shared the chef’s special treat of the night: a sticky toffee pudding. It was amazingly delicious.

After their charming engagement session in Washington DC, I finally had the honor of photographing Kristin and Matthew’s adorable wedding infused with LEGOs. The couple had exchanged quite a few LEGO minifigures while they were dating, and decided to integrate the fun into their wedding. Along with the happy and delicious memories attached to Fisherman’s Inn, Kristin and Matthew had of course wanted to share this restaurant and all the delicacies with their family and friends on their most special day.

The fun part of the wedding… LEGOs everywhere for everyone to enjoy. Kristin and Matt bought a carton of series seven LEGO mini figures along with lots of bricks pieces that they pick and choose and used them as decorations in vases and to give out as wedding favors. Their cute idea was a huge success, since many people had a good time pouring out the contents of the vases and creating their own LEGO masterpieces.

May you both live happily ever after.
