Situated on the shorelines of Stevensville, Maryland, Kent Island Resort, formerly known as the Kent Manor Inn, holds a distinctive place in the chronicles of the state’s history. For decades, the location has seen countless transitions, honing its reputation as a celebrated Eastern Shore wedding and events destination, not to mention an respected oasis for private get-aways. Its gradual evolution has brought forward a great blend of traditional and rustic settings, each offering its distinct allure to match the diverse preferences of guests.

Presently, Kent Island Resort caters to a multitude of events, exhibiting its versatility with grace. The resort, known for its elegant and varied event spaces, accommodates between 200 to 300 guests with ease, fitting an array of social gatherings. Its facilities include the picturesque Garden House that boasts a waterfront view of Thompson Creek, accommodating up to 200 guests. For those inclined towards a rustic charm, the Farmstead Barn is an impeccable choice, comfortably accommodating up to 250 guests. The ballroom, on the other hand, caters to more grandeur-oriented events, accommodating up to 300 guests.

One of Maryland’s premier Eastern Shore wedding destination, the resort offers numerous options for both ceremonies and receptions. The resort’s team of coordinators aim to provide a worry-free experience by diligently executing the client’s vision, further accentuating its appeal for event planning.

In the context of event photography, Kent Island Resort is nothing short of a goldmine. Its picturesque waterfront views offer a magnificent backdrop for portraits, while the venue’s grounds — especially around the Garden House — provide breathtaking settings, particularly in the fall. The various nooks and crannies around the resort ensure there is a perfect spot for just about every kind of event portrait, resulting in images that are beautiful and timeless.

However, despite the multitude of benefits, there are some constraints to consider for event photography at Kent Island Resort. For instance, hosting an event at the resort may be out of reach for some people’s budgets, with the cost of hosting an event at the venue landing somewhere north of $15k for around 100 guests, and varying depending on the type of event and the number of guests involved. Moreover, the capacity constraints of the different event spaces need careful planning for an optimal guest experience. Nevertheless, it’s a location that is more than worth putting on your shortlist.
