Sarah and Bryan. The Masthead at Pier Street Wedding. Oxford, Maryland.

To say the room was warm would be the understatement of the year. To say there was a blip on the power grid would be another one. But you’d never guess it by hanging with Sarah and Bryan. I described them earlier as Pollyana meets the Red Cross Knight, and they sailed through their wedding day finding beauty and spontaneity at every turn.

Rewind about a decade. She would board the bright purple bus on campus at McDaniel College every Sunday. Sarah, along with a great bunch of friends would make their way, often sleepy-eyed, to our fledgling storefront church tucked in next to Vinnie’s Tatoos in the strip mall. She pursued her faith back then, and she and Bryan are running the race, eyes fixed straight ahead . I’ve watched Sarah grow into a strong secure woman who knows who she is and whose she is. And I see the way that Bryan looks at her. He is her protector. He is her shield. He rocks.

Sarah’s theme was sunflowers {my favorite!} and sea glass. Sand dollars and chippy painted wood. Perfect for her historic Oxford, Maryland wedding.
The girls prepared for the big day in Sarah’s family vacation home . . . so many memories were flooding her mind all day long.

The Masthead at Pier Street Marina offered the entire wedding gathering great food, a terrific view and quite a party.

We walked right down the main street in Oxford to the park on the Tred Avon River where Sarah and her sister Molly would swing as little girls. I’m not even saying what happened when they found those swings on this day, but it was carefree and such a memory.

Deliciousness by Bay Country Bakery, tasted as good as it looked.

Bryan and Sarah . . . thank you, thank you, thank you for inviting me into your lives, for sharing your limo, for your amazing positive attitudes. You both are one in a million. All your friends think so.
