O you want us to photograph a wedding in our beloved Portland Maine?? YES PLEASE!
When Courtney and Andrew first wrote to us about their Portland Maine wedding, we were still living in Boston. We were SO excited about the prospect of coming to Maine to shoot theirÂ wedding we probably exclaimedÂ “Yes” to our computer screen. Thankfully, Portland is our home now so it was even more fun to photograph than we originally thought, which is saying something. Courtney got ready at the Portland Regency Hotel along with all her bridesmaids. I loved how they were all dressed in navy or nautical clothing before they even changed into their dresses… unplanned and fantastic. Andrew got ready at their new house, so it was super meaningful too!
We headed over toÂ St. Lukes CathedralÂ for the ceremony. It was SO gorgeous and we absolutely loved “meeting” a new local ceremony spot, (yes I know its a church first but thats just how our eyes are seeing things these days). After the ceremony we all headed to the Eastern Prom for more photos with the family, bridal party, and of course Courtney and Andrew. Next we headed toÂ Grace RestaurantÂ Â for the reception. There were so many sweet toasts and surprise dances that it felt like everyone just wanted to tell them how much they loved them both. It was fun to witness. Our favorite bartender was even there working so we got to see another friend, (we are giving you a shout out Crystal… even though I think the Old Port magazine feature may be a little bigger of a deal). It was a great day and we were so happy to be a part of it.
