Phoebe + Duncan's Backyard Wedding // West River, Maryland

When I arrived at Duncan's parent's house for his and Phoebe's Woodstock, Maryland wedding, I knew it was going to be one of those creatively fulfilling, easy as pie afternoons. The earliest guests were just starting to arrive, so we snuck out the kitchen door for secret portraits by the woodshed. Phoebe's dress kept picking up tiny leaves and it looked so at home trailing behind her in the grass. She was like an extension of the nature that surrounded us. When it came time for the ceremony, a few chairs from the dining room were set under two enormous trees for grandparents and everyone else crowded around. Phoebe gracefully walked out the front door and met Duncan to exchange vows. Time stood still and you could hear every bird, every whisper of wind, every sigh.
