Bowles Farm Southern Maryland Wedding

Taylor & Brent

My most trusted second shooter was back in tow for this wedding – my wife, Susanna! For those of you who don’t know, she phased out of shooting because of back issues. She doesn’t shoot every wedding anymore with me, but whenever she does, it’s such a treat. It’s amazing how little communication is needed on my end since she knows me like the back of her hand. We weren’t technically back in Southern Maryland during this time, June 1, 2019, but it was great nonetheless to shoot in such a familiar area as Bowles Farm. We’ve shot one other wedding here at the venue, but visited as a family often.

Taylor & Brent’s beautiful day started at Taylor’s grandmother’s house in Valley Lee. We’ve only been back living in Southern Maryland for a few months now, but have been amazed at how many scenic places there are here in this small peninsula of Southern MD. Valley Lee was one of them and we loved the light entering Taylor’s grandmother’s house as Taylor was getting ready. It created some beautiful contrasts as she put on her dress from Today’s Bridal and as we got her details. Of course there were tears shed as mom was realizing her daughter was about to get married to Brent.

Once we arrived at Bowles Farm about 30 minutes north, we met Heather Miller who of course operates Hitched by Heather & Simply Hitched. A wedding planned by this team means complete trust, relief, and knowing we would be taken care of! After we covered a little bit of Brent getting ready at the farm, we were ready for the ceremony!

Guests arrived on a cool tractor/shuttle ride and sat under a beautiful large oak tree. As soon as the rest of the bridal party made their entrances, Taylor entered on a horse & carriage as horses are very dear to Taylor. These horses are the special Clydesdales horses from Suttler Post Farm Clydesdales. Majestic looking beauties!! Brent’s tears were heartfelt throughout her entrance and vows and their ceremony was so short and sweet.

The reception shortly followed with some great toasts as well as a special thank you speech from Brent as he thanked everyone for coming and missing his late father. I teared MULTIPLE times editing and felt very personal to me, despite my father still being alive.

I think everyone can appreciate a little country music, even if you are not a fan of it as the guests got down the rest of the night partying the night away. The day went without a hitch, and we were so happy to have partook in this awesome couple’s wedding day. Thanks again for having us and choosing us to capture your moments!
