K & B | Woodlawn Manor wedding | Sandy Spring, MD

K and B weathered the wedding storm – both literal and symbolic.  The rain held out perfectly, waiting til everyone was safely under a tent to drop out of the heavens.  And they sailed through any wedding obstacles (and there always are some).  Their friends and family made them cry, and laugh, and dance like crazy people.  Yes, when the lights went out everyone got their mad, freaky boogie on, and it was awesome.  And did I mention there was an entire roast pig?  Because there was an entire roast pig.  My peeps really throw incredibly great weddings.

K and B got hitched at Woodlawn Manor, up in Sandy Spring, Maryland.  It’s a beautiful old home with a permanent tent and lots of lovely places for portraits, including this bamboo growth, which I hadn’t seen before, and which K directed us to through lots of bushes and such.  Earlier in the day, it was like this:
