Jen and Ben live in Colorado but wanted to have their wedding where Jen grew up, in the Annapolis area. The couple choose the quaint and historic waterfront Kent Manor Inn to host their ceremony and reception. Jen’s vision for her wedding was rustic, romantic elegance with modern touches. Bill Doepkins of Doepkins Farm helped Jen’s vision come together with vibrant, burgundy flowers with touches of cream and gold.
Guests were transported to the Inn via shuttles and were welcomed to the back lawn for the ceremony. Ben’s grandfather performed the ceremony in front of the small waterfront gazebo. After the ceremony, Guests enjoyed a cocktail and butler passed appetizer on the lawn of the garden house. A live artist capture the couple’s special day in front of the historic building.
A seated dinner was served for guests inside the garden house with toasts and well wishes from family and friends. Guests transitioned to the tent for dancing by the Bachelor Boys Band. A flower ball with lighting adorned the clear top tent so everyone could enjoy a beautiful view of the night sky. Homemade pies were served as dessert in between a caricature artist capturing your best side!
“Leslie from Wedding Savvy is amazing. Our wedding would not have been what it was if it wasn't for her! We encountered some issues a couple of months into the planning process, and were having trouble in general planning from far away. That's when Leslie came on board and turned everything around for us. She's so on top of it and made every idea that we had for our wedding happen (and then some). We trusted her advice/direction on every piece, and she did not let us down! Leslie was prepared for everything/anything. Both of our families (particularly mine since they had the most interaction) were impressed by and grateful for Leslie and her professionalism. And for me - I don't think I could have worked with anyone better.”
