Chanteclaire Farm

Fellow wedding photographer Shawn and his bride Kristen knew they wanted to have a barn wedding reception, and they also wanted to spend a few days at a lake with their friends before the big day. They got everything they wanted by choosing to have their wedding at Chanteclaire Farm in Friendsville, Maryland. Kristen and Shawn rented a house on Deep Creek Lake, where they and their friends spent time sunning, swimming and relaxing together in the days leading up to the wedding. They were married outdoors, with a reception inside Chanteclaire Farm’s barn, which provided a rustic, fun atmosphere for their wild dance party.

This lake wedding had amazing light and intense emotion that could never be scripted, even when the groom is a photographer himself.
