I have seriously been slacking on my posting! Saturday I spent almost all day sleeping off a sickness until the Doctor Who showing and dinner with friends (aka Dinner with the Doctor), Sunday was spent at the MDRF with most of the PARF crew, and Monday was a holiday and we packed it with a roadtrip to Solomon's Island, stopping by at Annmarie Garden and the Calvert Marine Museum (where I shot my last wedding!). Yesterday it was pouring cats and dogs and work was ridiculously busy (part of my job involves making student ID cards, and we made over 270!). Today it is also raining all day long and the road the college is located off of is flooded at both ends... and here I am in the library working anyway. At least Bear drove me in to work in his SUV... a MUCH better alternative in these high waters than my little Honda!
Anywho... weddingness. I think we found our venue! Bear and I spent our Monday shenanigans with my parents in Solomon's. I had hoped to marry in an artistic venue, and Annmarie has the look, feel, and price we were looking for! They have so many things going on all year round, and we happened to arrive for two exhibits and a little fairy house scavenger hunt! Some of the chalk drawings remained from that event, and some of the classic art reproductions painting in tree knots managed to survive for us as well! The property has a ton of permanent sculptures and installations as well as participating with the Smithsonian, which brings in work from around the world. It was truly a magical experience!
And Bear and I tried our hand at portraiture of one another...
Happy Wednesday! Thanks for your patience with me!
