gibson island club wedding ceremony

Sarah and Eric's wedding was magical, a combination of careful planning and a bit of luck.  On the planning side, they picked a gorgeous spot on the Chesapeake for their ceremony and reception (the Gibson Island Club), called in their talented friend Dolly to help with the decorations, and chose to dance down their aisle to the Pharrell Williams song "Happy."   The luck came in when the afternoon thunderstorms kept their distance, and when a bald eagle did a fly-by after the ceremony! (Yes, I got a photo by the way. I did not, however, have a 1000mm wildlife lens handy, which would have helped).

Of course, the true magic of any wedding comes from the couple, and when Sarah and Eric were together, you could tell they felt "like a room without a roof." Just like the song, their happiness infected everyone around them and made them want to tap their feet, smile and, later in the evening, bust out their best happy dance!
