July weddings are certain. They’re certainly going to be hot. Luckily, when you book at a beautiful venue such as at the Kent Manor Inn in Stevensville, MD, you’re sure to get at least some reprieve from the sea’s breeze. As soon as you walk into Kent Manor though, you won’t really care. The manor itself is exactly what any couple would want in a vintage manor, complete with beautiful authentic wood floors and carefully decorated rooms. The outdoor areas are spacious and their air conditioned reception building is complete with a wall of windows. That’s right… a WHOLE wall of windows (cue photographer’s doing a happy dance). That way you can watch the amazing sunset over Maryland’s eastern shore as you celebrate with your family and friends.
(Thank you so much to Julie DiCarlo of Julie DiCarlo Photography for having me as her second photographer for this wedding! I met two exceptional women that day, Julie and her assistant Kim, and I am so blessed to know them and can’t wait to work with these ladies again!)
There was no doubt in my mind, after seeing Jessica’s exceptional choices for her decorations and dresses, that they would enter their reception in style and sass.
It was at this point that my time was up with this fantastic couple, as well as with Julie and Kim. I sadly departed knowing there was a great party ahead for everyone, but, so is the life when you’re the second photographer!
With some hitches along the wedding day, Jessica and Lance took it all in stride. They are a great example to all couple’s that you need to realize the most important things about the wedding day: exchanging the vows with your beloved. A few things or many things can go awry, but the most important thing, and only thing that truly matters is that you’re there with the love of your life pledging your loyalty, love, and soul to one another.
