I had so much fun at Rachel and Tim’s Spruce Point Inn wedding earlier this month. The got married in my absolute favorite church in Maine, Our Lady, Queen of Peace, in Boothbay Harbor. After the ceremony we wandered around dodging raindrops on the grounds of the Spruce Point Inn the portraits.
I love a family who loves love. The nieces and nephews in this family played a huge part in the wedding, all wearing adorable on fleek outfits and making their tiny personalities known throughout the day.
And, of course, I was thrilled to see the rocking band, Business Time at another wedding. They absolutely brought down the house!
I had such a wonderful time at Heather and Jon’s very intimate wedding. Two of the guests were two of my previous clients, (Hi Meline and James!) so that made it like a little reunion for me. I love it when that happens!
We all met up at The Beachmere in Ogunquit, and the getting ready and ceremony were right on site, and then we meandered down Marginal Way and re did a bunch of portraits and sightseeing.
We ended up at MC Perkins Cove for dinner drinks and a toast. A wedding where everyone can sit at a few tables, and take a stroll around town, is my definition of an intimate gathering!
Shelby and Chris are the executive chefs at Natalie’s in Camden Maine. They fell in love.
The sister resort to Natalie’s is The Danforth Inn in Portland, and that is where they hosted their beautiful wedding this month!
They each got ready in the Inn and we did their portraits right on the property. The ceremony was held in the side yard of the inn and their reception took over the entire first floor.
One of my favorite moments of the night was when Shelby yielded a ten inch chef’s knife to cut the cake. Nobody batted an eye, as it looked totally normal in her hands, even if it is a wee bit out of place next to a wedding cake!
Fabulous wonderful wedding between two incredibly talented individuals!
Kate and Will hosted their small and beautiful wedding at an oceanside venue in Harpswell Maine, The Driftwood Inn. There was a light rain at the start of the day, but no spirits were dampened! The food was amazing and the dancing was inspired. The DJ broke out the Peanuts theme song during the reception and Kate’s entire family started bouncing and bobbing and weaving like Linus and Lucy and Snoopy. I was in tears of laughter. I adore these small weddings where, even if I don’t know all the inside stories and jokes, it is fun to see everyone else with that close connection and intimacy.
Greg and Lauren had their delightful wedding on Peak’s Island, at The Harbor View at Jones Landing. These two are true athletes and they and much of their wedding party boarded the ferry at 6am, on the day of their wedding, and went to Winslow Park in Freeport to participate in the Lobsterman Triathlon, which raises money for the Maine Cancer Foundation. So, yeah. A quick triathlon and then back to the island to get ready for their wedding. No big deal.
They had their beloved dog-of-honer, Gretel, who, as you can see, is part of relationship, in a big way. In fact, it appeared her seal of approval was pretty important to Lauren when starting to date Greg. One of my favorite photos of the day, I like to call “The dog is done with the photoshoot. Done.” See if you can tell which one that is!
As if I couldn’t love these two more, with the help of their DJ, they had a little mis-direction, and a couple of moments after their first dance, then took off sprinting for their “First Run”. It was such a fun light-hearted wedding.
Andrea and Tim had a gorgeous wedding in Camden, Maine recently on a glorious fall day. They started things off right with a lobster feed for a rehearsal dinner at the Camden Yacht Club!
I met up with the happy couple and their delightful Chihuahua, Raphael King’s Strut Westmeyer-Downing, better known as Raffie, the next day at the Camden Harbour Inn, which was getting delightfully decorated by Flora Fauna Wedding Design.
We went for a stroll through Camden and did a portrait session before the ceremony at The Amphitheater, behind the Camden Public Library. Which was a musical delight- I will be sure to post a link to Earl Christie’s video of the ceremony, when it is up, it was a treat for the ears!
Look for part two of this wedding post, with reception photos at Natalie’s in a few weeks!
Emma and Tom had a wonderful family-only wedding in Belfast. The ever delightful Captain Ken Barnes came to office their lovely ceremony in the park.
It was a delightful day, complete with lawn games and a piñata! The mood was very celebratory with a laid back feel to the day too- like the very best family cocktail lawn party.
Emma, Tom and I walked down to Belfast to do a few portraits before they met up with their family at Chase’s Daily, an amazing farm to table restaurant, which accommodated everyone wonderfully.
