Devin + Kevin: a wedding at home on the water

From the moment I met them, I loved them. You could tell in an instant that they were truly meant to be together and thought of one another in every way. I will always remember the warm welcome I was given upon arriving at Devin's parents' home in the quiet area of Solomons, MD...tight hugs & big smiles. Having a wedding at a family's home is indeed a large undertaking; however, nothing is quite as special. The sense of ease and relaxed atmosphere amidst the hustle & bustle of setup is something that you don't experience elsewhere. Apart from how much I absolutely love Devin+Kevin, one of my favorite parts of their day was being able to ride with them on a boat with Devin's father at the helm from the church back to their home. You could see all of the guests waving at them from across the water during cocktail hour and the biggest smile on her father's face. Also, his voice sounds exactly like the father (narrator) from the movie Big Fish which I couldn't get enough of. I hope you love the photos as much I loved making them! xoxoKatie
