Sarah + Brent’s Wedding | 6.13.09

Sarah and Brent got married Scientifically – well, not really, but they got married in a unique place in Southern Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay called “Scientist’s Cliffs”. This community was founded in 1935 by Flippo and Annie Gravitt. That year, while hosting a picnic with colleagues, who were mostly scientists, they realized a desire to create a beautiful retreat on the 238 acres along the bay and development began soon after. Today the community is private and available only to homeowners, and their guests and renters. Housing appears to be mostly log cabins tucked into the natural landscape on the rolling hills and cliffs above the Chesapeake. Sarah’s parents are lucky enough to have one of most appealing and lovely log homes, and it was next to this that Sarah and Brent had their ceremony. We couldn’t believe the tall poplar trees and lush landscape as well as the unbelievable view of the Bay from this one-of-a-kind perch! Rain came down on the guests and wedding party but Josh, Brent’s best man, dutifully held an umbrella above the couple and all went along without a pause. After the ceremony, Sarah and Brent were treated to a lovely rainbow and even a bald eagle flyover! We took the wedding party for some fun shots on the beach and then it was on to Chestnut Lodge for their celebration. Food was abundant and everyone loved dancing well into the night. Brent’s mom, Kathy, served a variety of her homemade cookies which were quickly stuffed into bags for late night snacks. I loved watching Brent look at Sarah all though the festivities. Such a happy groom!
