Real Couples // Remote Forest Mansion Wedding: Chris + Brian

The drive out to the wedding was three hours from anything (including cell service). It was hours of fields, forests, and highways, and I finally started seeing peeks of water in between trees before pulling up to Great Oak Manor in Chestertown, Maryland. The mansion was Brian and Chris's for the weekend. Family and friends came in from everywhere to be a part of the celebration that happened in a giant lawn that opened up to a giant panoramic view of the water.

They were married on the coast, celebrated under a tent filled with everyone they loved, and only escaped for a moment to hold hands and walk on the sandy beach. Two men in love, married by the water, dancing through the night.
