The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek (Boyds, Maryland)
At the end of a week that saw near-daily thunderstorms, and a national tragedy that
has gripped this country, it was refreshing to witness two people declare their love
and commitment to each other on a field of green surrounded by their families and friends.
On Sunday afternoon, as Holly began her walk down the aisle in the dress she
made herself, an ominous dark cloud approached overhead. The seated guests
all began to plan their exits should the rains come, but, the rains didn't come.
Instead, the sun began to pierce its way through the veil of clouds, and
Holly and Craig said their I do's under skies that were dry. After the ceremony,
we hiked down to the Little Seneca Creek, and in the quiet and the calm,
standing under the canopy of trees, a little patch of sunlight pushed its way through,
like a scene from an Impressionist painting.
