Kendra & John | Brookside Gardens Wedding

How they met

Kendra and John are both nurses at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD.   They work on different floors so they didn’t have a lot of interaction.  One of their friends, however, works on multiple different floors and knew right away that they would be perfect for each other.  Kendra took a little persuading, but eventually agreed to a date with John.

I actually have known Kendra for years from back when I worked at Camp Sonshine.  It was really neat for me to see her with John during their engagement session…it only took me a moment to realize that they are so great for each other!  John balances out Kendra and he truly just cares about her so much.  You can tell in just the way he looks at her.  They are so sweet together and I was so excited for their wedding day!

Their Wedding

John and Kendra got married at Brookside Gardens in Montgomery County, MD two weeks ago.  You may remember that there was a crazy freak tornado that rolled through the area two weeks ago…yup, that happened right in the middle of their special day!!  That did not stop them from still having their ceremony and reception outside.  Brookside offers such a gorgeous space and I was so happy that the storm didn’t ruin it for them.  Kendra and John put a lot of unique touches into their day and I can’t wait to share them with you.  Congrats guys, hope you love the photos!!
Love the beautiful personal moments that I got to capture, like the girls all praying together.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Kendra’s dad saw her for the first time! Kendra and John grew up going to two different beaches so they mixed the sand from those beaches in part of their ceremony.  

Congrats Kendra & John on a wonderful day!! SO SO happy for you guys!!
