Samantha and Luis fell in love in Peru and when they chose Maine as their location to get married in, as it was a childhood destination for Samantha, they brought the world to Linekin Bay Resort, one of my favorite seaside venues in Maine! I was pretty busy shooting during the toasts, when all of the call-outs were going on, but I do believe five continents were represented in the guest list! It was a fantastic day and the joy was glowing radiating in all directions!
From the moment I first heard from Liz and Paul, I knew this wedding was going to be something special. The two of them are theater people and they hosted their wedding ceremony “in the round” in a barn. The day was enjoyed at Broadturn Farm in Scarborough, an organic flower farm. So incredibly gorgeous, around every corner! A cozy campfire rounded out the evening and made for a delightful Maine wedding!
Alana and Jay got married at the summer camp outside of Machias, Maine, where they first met. Their friendship and love grew over a succession of summers and they now live right down the road for the camp and own a small goat farm. You can not find a more adorable story and couple than this! Enjoy the photos!
Kayley and Joe had the absolutely most adorable wedding at The Village by the Sea in Wells. The hosted the entire day right on the property, getting ready, ceremony and reception in one convenient location- plenty of time for entertaining and socializing with their guests! The day was incredibly joyous. Enjoy the photos!
Katherine and Matt threw the most fabulous wedding on Peaks Island at The Inn on Peaks Island last month and it could not have been more fun!
I caught up with matt in time to join him on the ferry ride over from Portland, along with many of his guests and family. It was a real treat. once on the island, I found Katherine, who was in the throes of getting ready. Their ceremony was held right on the side lawn of the Inn. It was, of course, beautiful and very touching. And there were a few laughs shared along the way too.
Right after Katherine and Matt were introduced into their reception, they participated in a Persian sugar ceremony. This was a completely new event for me, and it consisted of the women covering the couple with a veil-like cloth and rubbing sugar over them. It is intended to sweeten the marriage. Their Iranian friends and family led the way and everyone joined in. It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone- including me!
Best Wishes to the happy couple!
