Hi All! I am catching up on some long lost blogging and posting photos as I receive them from various photographers.
Below, please find a few shots from Jennifer and Davids June wedding. They were married on our Waterfront Point in a sea of cabbage roses, peonies and a plethora of other petals. Afterwards, a tent lit with fuschia and orange lanterns - with flora to match. The wedding planner was Drew Vanlandingham from Baltimore and the entire weekend was stunning - of course!
Thank you to Johnathan Hanson for the following photos. http://www.jonathanhansonweddings.com/

A Murder Mystery Party
Presented by The Combsberry Inn
October 30, 2010
Your presence is requested to celebrate the union of
with a wedding reception you won’t soon forget.
As friends and family come together for a night of food and fun, it will quickly turn into a night of mystery and mayhem–
leaving one of the guests murdered! And you and your guests are left to solve the crime...
Hmmmmm…… Will it be the jealous ex-boyfriend who is to blame?
Or, the father of the bride who opposed the marriage from the start? Oh my goodness!!!
Could it be the bridesmaid who longs to be a bride?
Eeeeek! Or possibly the estranged uncle that has wasted away his family fortune?
As the night progresses, secrets will be revealed, motives exposed and your sleuthing skills will be put to the test.
What will you say when it is your turn to finger the culprit?
Speak now or forever a "killer" will roam free on Marylands Eastern Shore…
*A two night minimum is required this weekend for guests staying at The Combsberry Inn. Limited space is available.
What better way to celebrate Halloween than a Murder Mystery Party in a 300 year old Historic Inn?

As the long, hot summer draws to an end, I look forward to the arrival of the Canadian geese, as they make their annual journey to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Guests at Combsberry's Inn in Oxford love to gently swing in the hammock or sip a glass of wine at the end of the pier as they enjoy the geese landing in perfect formation on Bringman's Cove. No need for an alarm clock at Combsberry's B & B. Guests are awakened to the haunting cry of the geese, as well as the tantalizing aroma of fresh coffee brewing.
We also welcomed the reopening of the historic Robert Morris Inn's restaurant. Two well known chefs left the renowned Inn @ Perry Cabin and branched out on their own. The ambiance is of an historic English pub, in keeping with the long history of the Inn and the part that Robert Morris played in financing the American Revolution. Oxford, Maryland was one of the first deep seaports in America and retains the quaint charm of a seaside village versus the hustle and bustle of St. Michaels, Md.
As the geese head towards the Chesapeake Bay area, Easton is busy planning for its annual Waterfowl Festival. This well known event draws artists and visitors from around the world, the second weekend of November. The streets are cordoned off and the town takes on the flavor of a street fair with musicians providing a lively background for visitors strolling down the streets sampling various Eastern Shore delicacies. Don't miss out on the fun and the ability to purchase world class art pieces right here in Talbot County, known as The Hamptons of Maryland.
Combsberry Inn is located on 30 acres of secluded waterfront property and specializes in personal service, delicious food, luxurious rooms and cozy fireplaces. Book your room now!
