Swan Harbor Farm Wedding by Kathleen Hertel Photography

Kathleen Hertel Photography shared this gorgeous Swan Harbor Farm wedding with us, as well as a little bit about Colleen+Derek’s wedding day!  “A few weeks before the wedding Derek broke his leg and was in a walking cast. He had a boot on the whole day, but you would have never noticed with the way he rocked the dance floor!  They held their wedding ceremony under a beautiful old tree in the front of the Farm house, and it culminated with a butterfly release! During their reception their guests partied the night away. Their cake was topped with Colleen’s grandmother’s cake topper.”

And bride, Colleen, shares some of the challenges of wedding planning!  “Planning was so much fun, it mostly involved my sisters and my mom, but we definitely sought Derek’s opinion at times. We started this journey in a pretty typical manner and went to a bridal expo in Baltimore to get ideas.  I searched high and low for a venue with a tent already set up and stumbled upon Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace. After the venue was chosen, my sisters, my mom and I went shopping for a wedding dress! I went to four different stores, and after about the 40th dress of the day, I burst into happy tears the moment I put on THE dress!  The veil choice was easy, because it was my moms from 30 years ago.  The caterer was a tough choice, but we ended up choosing Dean and Brown because they offered to make Derek’s mom’s Mac+Cheese recipe!  Most people told me the tent did not need any lights hung because of the beautiful setting already. I had been in touch with Event dynamics for about a year knowing I wanted to hang lights of some sort and they were very flexible, I literally finalized details the week before the wedding and I don’t regret the money I spent on that for a minute- they MADE the tent!”
