It was a very beautiful Saturday morning. Despite the rain the day before the forecast called for sunny skies for Katelynn and Jonathan’s wedding day. The ceremony was scheduled much earlier than I am used to but the couple wanted an early wedding to enjoy the day with friends and family. The atmosphere at Thorpewood is very natural and organic. The setting lent itself to a beautiful wedding ceremony on a 155-acre mountain retreat in the Catoctin Mountains near Thurmont, MD. The food served, while a first for me for typical wedding fare may have been my favorite. It was buffet style brunch with the highlight of my day, chicken and waffles. I can say I defiantly helped myself to seconds! As the dancing and partying started to wind down at Thropewood it was only just the beginning for Katelynn and Jonathan and their new lives together as husband and wife.
