Great Oak Manor Wedding Photography | Crysten & Nick

Crysten and Nick celebrated their intimate micro wedding at historic Great Oak Manor in Chestertown, Maryland. Special elements of the day included their 11 year old pup Rocky, homemade limoncello, the Groom’s Navy uniform, custom wax seals, and special wines selected for each course. My favorite was the cake cutting which was done using Nick’s sword, one of the best military marriage traditions! Their jewish marriage included a ketubah signing in the library followed by a ceremony outdoors overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The service included a sheva brachot with seven blessings and the mixing of various colors and shards of glass. The evening continued with dancing to music by the amazing Sly 45 Duo!
