Beyond Our Expectations

My wife and I searched for a nice place close to our home to stay for a few days. On line my wife found the Kent Manor Inn. Having traveled many years over the Bay Bridge, we had no idea that this Inn existed. We made our reservation and we were pleased beyond our expectations. From the moment of arrival, everything was wonderful. Checking into our room, we found it to be beautiful: the furnishings, the amenities, and the quiet. During our two day stay we found the staff to be friendly and very accommodating. The continental breakfast was unlike those that we have had at other venues. The food was excellent and the coffee especially good. All of the staff made sure that everything was great. We found all of the other guests to be friendly and as happy with the Inn as were we. We will definitely stay at the Kent Manor Inn again.

The First Look

Wedding Tip Wednesday:

The First Look:

A new trend in Weddings and Wedding Photography is the First Look. Traditionally Brides and Grooms would not see eachother prior to the Wedding Ceremony… it was considered bad luck.  Grooms first sight of the Bride would be when she walked down the aisle.  In Modern Weddings, many traditions have been bent with Brides and Grooms altering the traditions to better fit their personalilties while keeping the specialness of the traditions, the First Look is a new twist on an old tradition.

A First Look is a special moment that is captured when prior to the ceremony a Bride and Groom are revealed to eachother in their Wedding Attire, the Bride in her Wedding Gown and the Grown in his tux or suit.  This romantic and sweet moment is caught on film to be part of the Wedding Memories.  The butterflies in their stomachs are evident.

Another added bonus to the first look is the chance to take all the Wedding Party photos prior to ceremony. This allows the Bride and Groom, family and Wedding Party time to spend enjoying the Wedding Reception rather than taking too much time taking photos.

When Bride and Groom Kristen and Ryan celebrated their Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Reception at Historic Kent Manor Inn, they decided to do a First Look Session.  The photos tell the story. Photography Courtesy of Emily Chastain Photography
