Brittney & Andrew | Romantic Styled Wedding

This is Part One of the Bay Tree Manor Styled Shoot. For Part Two click here!

Back in April I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a beautifully crafted styled shoot! Mark had to teach Awanas, so I was flying solo and it made me a little nervous, even though I’ve totally shot by myself before. Funny how our brains can convince us of things!

Anyway, I drove down Rt 17, turned right off of it, and drove until I hit the water, where Bay Tree Manor stands nestled beside the- you guessed it- bay. The Chesapeake Bay, which I hear may or may not have been formed by a giant meteor back in the day.

I had no idea the bed and breakfast existed before that weekend, and I’m a little surprised I didn’t, but I don’t get out much. Hehehe. However, it’s a sweet event venue, and definitely a place I wouldn’t mind spending a weekend getaway.

By the time I got there, all of the details were set up, a cake table, a reception setting, two dolled up couples (I’m blogging one couple today and the other in a separate post), and macaroons. They are very picturesque, and maybe one found it’s way into my belly.

It was such a joy to work with so many talented vendors (peep their info below), and I’m glad to share their work through my photography. Today is Brittany and Andrew, a sweet and laid back couple who are also wedding videographers!
