Great Oak Manor Wedding Photographer | Jon & Sheree

ArpasiphotographyEasternshoreweddingphotographerBaltimoreweddingphotographerGreatOakManorWeddingphotographer057Okay, before I begin I need to apologize for my lack of entries lately. In the past three weeks, I’ve been sick three separate times and have traveled to three different places. We spent 14 hours driving to Alabama for my Aunt Alice’s funeral and drove 14 hours back. Then, shortly after we left for St. Louis for my sister-in-law’s wedding and then Aaron and I went away for our anniversary. Where did we go you ask? Well…that brings me to Jon & Sheree’s wedding. I second shot this wedding with Melissa Manzione Photography. She is wonderful and you should definitely check out her work. Anyways, when I was chatting with Melissa she was telling me about this wedding in Chestertown. I had never been, but went ahead and made the hour and a half drive from Towson. It was a gorgeous drive! I literally did not know that scenes like this existed in Maryland. The drive consisted of little coastal towns, I felt like I was in Maine.  I then pulled up to this old historic mansion, Great Oak Manor. Once I did, I knew it was going to be a beautiful day and oh it most definitely was!

Jon & Sheree are seriously the sweetest. Both of them seemed more worried about if I was comfortable than themselves. Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Great Oak Manor is a wonderful venue and the details were beautiful. They really thought about their guests and had a ton for them to do during cocktail hour even.  I will also say that this wedding came with a story.  It was def a first for me…stay tuned!

Well, the wind got so bad it blew a ton of decorations down and the managers were worried for the guests’ safety.  So we all ran inside the building, literally getting drenched.  It was a torrential downpour!  But, let me tell you…Sheree and Jon were still so happy and ready to celebrate.  There was not one upset person.  Once the DJ got set up inside, it was still such a fun time!!
