Southport Maine Wedding: Lex and Rodney

It was a perfect Maine day. The kind of day that brings people here in droves in the summertime. I am sure it was the kind of day that Lex and Rodney were crossing their fingers for ever since their buzzworthy engagement.

As she walked down to him at the end of the aisle he would beam and then look at his feet, all gushy and overwhelmed and adorable. They said “I do” overlooking one of our favorite views in Maine. After the ceremony they both breathed a sigh of relief and goofiness of them both came out in full force. We spend some time with them on a boat, driven by none other than this fine Lobsterman. Then we walked over to the other side of the point and took some fun sunset photos.¬†The party was clearly a ball, with laughs and inside jokes and crazy dance moves. ¬†We looked forward to this wedding for a long time and it did not disappoint.

Chester Vermont Wedding: Nick and Devon

Devon and Nick live in sunny California yet they came all the way back to New England for their wedding at a little Inn in Vermont. These two reached out to us in 2013 and we told them we did not book over 18 months in advance so to please come back when the date is closer. Well wouldn’t you know it, Nick reached back out to us exactly 362 days later. We were elated and booked their wedding after over 2 hours on the phone just having a ball getting to know him. When they much anticipated day finally came, it was even greater since this is post June 26, 2015 #SCOTUS #lovecantwait #lovewins and all of that goodness.

They stood facing each other and said some of the most emotional and moving well written vows we have heard. After that it was all hugs and kisses and tears from everyone invited. The party began with an amazing meal, half indian food, half brick oven pizza (I wish I could go back to that right NOW and have it for dinner again). There was dancing of course, and even two caricature artists! It was such a fun wedding to be a part of.

North Berwick Maine Wedding: Anna and Weston

Sometimes a wedding just fits. Anna and Weston’s farm wedding was a perfect picture of who these two are as far as we can tell. They held the wedding a the meeting house just up the road from Anna’s parents Garlic farm, where her parents live and work. Anna wore an heirloom gown that first belonged to her grandmother, then her mother, then her sister, and then her! The flowers were grown on the property too! We loved how involved their fur-baby was in the wedding as well. Mahoney their rescue pup walked down the aisle and sat next to them as they exchanged their vows. If Anna and Weston weren’t being so romantic up there, Mahoney may have stolen the show.

After the ceremony, we took a horse drawn carriage back to the house, where dinner was served in their barn. Next we all moved over the dancing tent and enjoyed music and dancing under a beautiful summer moon.

Hanover New Hampshire Wedding: Nji and Russell

Nji and Russell’s wedding was one that we will lovingly refer to as one of “the big ones” of 2015. ¬†They pulled out all the stops, from tuxedos to designer gowns, gorgeous flowers to tasty dinner, beautiful lighting at the reception and a gorgeous ceremony location. The only thing that they couldn’t plan on was the weather, which did rain. You might think that would put a damper on such an event but no. I wish you could have been there to see just how positive and upbeat and “no worries man” they were about the showers. Talk about rolling with the punches! After a run through the rain, they married one another in the presence of friends and family that came from literally all over the world. This was also the wedding with the tallest bridesmaids that there has ever been in the history of weddings! For the first time ever in my photography career, I wasnt the tallest girl in the room, and not by a long shot. Over six feet was the norm with these volleyball ladies and they all wore heels too. It was fabulous!

The dance party was on point, and reiterated the fact that New Yorkers¬†know how to throw a party. Nji’s brother even dropped a new single debut at the reception! The speeches had guests crying from love and laughter. It was clear that this marriage was one that everyone was thrilled about, and we were thrilled to have been there.

Portland Maine Sailboat Wedding: Dan and Kristen

We met Dan and Kristen when we first moved the New England back in 2011! They both worked at Charles River Canoe and Kayak with us, Dan even taking us out for dinner on one of our first nights in Boston. They came over to our house for Superbowl Parties, and group watching of The Bachelor. We went over to their house for Cookie Parties at Christmas. They beat us to moving to Maine but we soon followed and of course are still friends. When they planned their Sailboat wedding we were dying for an invite, and even more honored when they invited us to photograph it for them. Dan is a landscape photographer and Kristen is a painter, so we took it as a high compliment to be taken in as artists with them.

Besides their art world, they are equally ocean-minded people, both as salty and sea-legged as you can find without going into the realm of storybooks. Kristen builds boats for goodness sakes! There was no other place that they could even consider getting married other than floating on the big blue sea.

We met them at their house where they got ready together and then headed over to the docks to meet their family and get sailing! On the boat we headed to the Portland Head Light, where they said their vows in sight of the famous lighthouse. Next we sailed to Cow Island where they treated their family to a lobster bake. Then we all headed back to Portland as the sun set. I kept pinching myself throughout the day because it almost felt surreal to be a part of such a unique and special wedding.
