Thank you Kemberly from Whalehead for making our May 2018 wedding so magical despite the stormy weather. From the moment we first meet Kemberly, she made us feel at home and the Whalehead grounds are so beautiful. Our family and friends were so happy we chose the beautiful Whalehead. Kristi and Jason
