Kent Manor Inn Wedding- Marissa and Raed - Maryland Wedding Photographer
I met Marissa & Raed when they were guests at a wedding I photographed in Greece. We connected when we started planning their dream wedding elopement in Antarctica. I was so excited when Raed finally proposed to Marissa and they called me because they wanted to do their engagement session in Zion National Park . We had so much fun at their adventure session that I knew their wedding was going to be AMAZING!
Marissa & Raed got married at Kent Manor Inn. One of my favorite venues on the Eastern Shore. I started the afternoon with Marissa and her bridesmaids… who were hilarious… We spent the entire getting ready time laughing our asses off as the girls got beautified by Up Do’s for I Do’s. Marissa and Raed were now pros at getting married as this was their third wedding together. We had to clarify this to the coordinator because when one of the groomsmen said it was Raed’s third wedding she thought it was to three different people. Her answer was well third times a charm. To clarify… they had a civil ceremony where they live in Arizona, then a wedding with Raed’s family in Jordan and then finally in Maryland with Marissa’s family.
Raed's Favorite Memory: Dancing with the field of fireflies
Marissa’s Favorite Memory: Dancing with Raed, my family, and friends. And that amazing sunset!
One of Marissa and her mom’s requests was to capture her dad’s many fun faces. Turns out it runs in the family… Marissa and her dad have the bet expressions ever! But lets not leave Raed out… he also was a man of many different expressions which made editing their photos so much fun!
The reception was quite the party… in fact, I don’t think the dance floor was empty all night. Crow Entertainment did an amazing job!
The sunset at Marissa & Raed’s wedding was the best sunset I have ever photographed. And then to top it all off… As we were heading back to the venue we looked over into a wooded area and their were fireflies everywhere. Marissa and Raed followed the fireflies and had a romantic little dance surrounded by the glowing lights!
