O how I wish these two lived here in Portland, Maine. We would hang out all the time, (at least I hope we would). Laid back, barefoot, ocean-loving, sage burning… yes please. Nicole and Ken had a wedding that I would want for myself if Dan and I got married here in Maine. It reminded me of Kevin and Laura’s wedding last year… another SUPER Maine-y wedding with all the vibes. At the time, Nicole and Ken lived in Flagstaff AZ, and rented a house on the Maine coast for their intimate wedding. They had the place for the week and all the family could stay there so they just had a hang out surfing session getaway in the days surrounding the event.
The ceremony was FULL of tears and love and laughter, with a sage smudge, and readings. They were rooted in the grass, barefoot. It was a “YES” from me. Afterwards, we went to the shoreline with them for portraits, while family dogs bounded around us. Later we retreated back into the house for dinner and dancing. Such a special and wonderful and loving way to spend a Tuesday evening don’t you think?
