It’s not every wedding day that you get the Emergency Alert on your phone to take shelter. Alas, some wedding days are just met with torrential downpour and tornado warnings. A sign of good luck? Perhaps. The show must go on? Absolutely. But golden rays of light will peek through, maybe even that afternoon right before it cuts loose, and maybe not until the next day, but most assuredly the sun will come back again. Ah! A metaphor for marriage if I ever heard one. The dreamy, sprawling grounds of Strong Mansion
at Sugarloaf Mountain in Dickerson, MD provided a divine setting, regardless of ominous yellow skies and overflowing lily ponds. But forget rain! When you’ve got a bride belting Etta James, strawberry water and all your friends and family in their sopping Sunday best, what’s better? Kendall & Joey, it was such a pleasure getting to know you over this past year, starting with your engagement session
last May. I will miss you and was honored to be part of your special, albeit element-driven, day.
