Bright + Colorful Swan Cove Manor Wedding | Adam + Grace

December 26, 2023

Swan Cove Manor in Cambridge, MD is the perfect venue for a weekend-long wedding celebration! Privately tucked away on the Eastern Shore with waterfront views, there’s multiple homes on a single property, making it perfected for a 3-day affair. From a welcome party to a farewell brunch, Adam and Grace invited their family and friends to celebrate with them all weekend long over Labor Day. This beautiful day was a few years in the making – military deployments and COVID delays forced them to postpone more than once and both sides of the family were thrilled to see this day finally arrive.

If you set foot outside on Labor Day Weekend this year, then you’ll remember it was egg-frying hot with temperatures nearing 100. Grace and Adam didn’t let the heat dampen their joy at all and they treated their guests to watermelon push pops and ice cream cookie sandwiches at their waterfront reception. The entire day was bright and colorful with punchy florals and a cotton candy sunset behind the crowded dance floor.

After 12 years and over 200 weddings, I've created a wedding experience that is completely unfussy and truly irresistible.

Exceptional, gorgeous photography doesn’t have to be so serious; it can be playful and celebratory. Wanna know what lights me up? Unscripted, in-between moments on fast-paced wedding days and salty cocktail hour snacks. It’s been a thrill to see my work featured in magazines and online, but I’m proudest of all the brides who turned into friends.
