A Silver Swan Bayside wedding on the Maryland Eastern Shore

If you enjoy the classic touches of Maryland weddings, you’ll love Steph and Ryan’s nautical day at Silver Swan Bayside. Silver Swan is a gorgeous Maryland waterfront venue, perfect for any spring or summer outdoor wedding. You could almost taste the salt coming straight from the Chesapeake Bay!

Steph and Ryan had several location ideas in mind for their wedding day. After getting ready at a nearby hotel, we met at the church for their ceremony. After a few quick portraits there, we gathered the wedding party and drove straight to Kent Manor Inn in Stevensville. Kent Manor is another great location for a Maryland wedding! We got lucky and thankfully there were no other weddings happening that day.

At their reception, we enjoyed sweet nautical touches and grab-n-go treats. The couple swiftly joined guests at their cocktail hour due to completing all their portraits earlier after a First Look.

My favorite portraits of the day were sunset photos on the pier by the water. Steph and Ryan were so excited to finally be married, and we think their expressions say it all! We know they will enjoy these portraits from their wedding day for lifetime. Congratulations again to Steph and Ryan!
