Meghan and Devin’s Boston MA Wedding

It was our first wedding of the season and we could not imagine a better way to start things off. Classic. Elegant. Simple. Small. Classy. All great things.

Meghan and Devin were married at the Central Bistro in downtown crossing in Boston. They got ready at the Nine Zero Hotel nearby, choosing to have their first look there. The ceremony was so heartfelt, with a poem by her sister, and sweet stories shared that left most all of us in happy tears. One of my favorite moments of the night was the couples first dance. The song, “Angels” by The XX was a incredible choice paired with their choreographed and elegant dance, complete with a deep dip at the end. It was a great picture for me of who these two are as a couple, besides what I knew up to that point leading up to this day. At the end of the night, we headed out into the street for some night portraits. I loved the colors outside and especially the happiness that the sight of Meghan and Devin gave to passerbyers. Who doesnt love a Bride and Groom? I know I do!

Emily and Jason’s Castine Maine Wedding

We love this family. Emily is part of the famous Russell family, through which we have met and photographed some of the most fun couples there are! Remember Lyndsey and Ben? Hillary and Matt? Emily and Kate? All from this family and friends. Emily and Jason’s wedding took place right at the edge of a cliff on the gorgeous coast of Maine. There was a refreshing ocean breeze blowing as she walked down the aisle to marry her (now) husband. It was such a heartfelt ceremony, with many stories, prayers, and reading, including a thank you from the couple themselves. Some of the lines in their vows were so romantic I definitely shed a tear, to happy to see them become husband and wife. They need to be married. All is right with the world now that they are .

After such a romantic ceremony, all that was left to do was party! All their guests headed up to The Manor Inn and we took a few photos before heading up ourselves. Toasts, special dances, cake cutting, and then a dance party not to forget!

Amber and Colin’s Bar Harbor Maine Elopement

Amber and Colin live in NC, our home state! It was fun hanging out with some fellow North Carolina people on a sweet Saturday in May. They chose to elope way up here in the great state of Maine, simply because they thought it looked like a beautiful place (never having been here before). Now THAT is my kind of couple! Amber’s sister Megan came to officiate in a little gazebo overlooking the harbor. After their vows were said and the kiss was given, it was official! We all commented on how fast it happens once you are actually having the ceremony itself. Dan and I were the witnesses, signing the license, which was one of the big things on my wedding photography bucket list. Talk about an honor right?! The light was crazy too this evening. Take a moment to look at the sky in these photos. So much drama which is exactly how I like our photos. We spent the next couple hours strolling around the little town, even finding a USPS mailbox that we could send the license out with! Who ever get to witness that part eh? It’s a pretty important part too! We love photographing weddings like this and are so happy for these two!

Julie and Chet’s Sebasco Maine Wedding

When Julie and Chet contacted us about their wedding we were so excited about it. We could tell they were unique and fun and we are all about that. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Dan and I were able to get to know them a little better and we were right. We loved them. Julie was such a cool girl. I wish I could think of a better word to describe her but honestly, “cool” fits her pretty well. Chet is the kind of person that you are fast friends with and who will be the friend you always want to be more like. This was shown over and over again for both of them through the speeches at their reception.

Julie and Chet are private couple. This trait created one of the most romantic and intimate moments that we have ever witnessed as wedding photographers. Julie and Chet opted to exchange vows with one another alone. On their wedding day, after their “first look,” they walked out onto a private cove and told one another their commitment. Dan and I stood far away with our cameras, honored to be the only witnesses of the event. After their private vow ceremony they had a more traditional ceremony later, complete with wedding vows about Law & Order and future puppies together.

The reception was Maine “to a T” with Maine brews and Lobster and family and friends enjoyed an evening celebrating Julie and Chet’s forever love.

Dane and Michelle’s Virginia Beach VA Wedding

It was slightly overcast and breezy outside the day of Dane and Michelle’s Virginia Beach wedding. The weather said it was going to rain. As Michelle got ready, I heard almost no mention of the impending rain but rather casual chat and comfort among friends and family. Michelle seemed completely unphased by the fact that their wedding may be a rainy event. It was clear that her sole focus for this day was to marry Dane. During the first look it was impossible to keep a dry eye. It was just so sweet to see how excited Dane was to see his bride! Dane and Michelle have been together over seven years and that history created such a comfortable environment. They just knew each other so well that this felt like a celebration of something that everyone involved felt sure of. It felt like it was meant to be without question. Michelle is Dane’s girl… and there is no doubt about it. The way he looks at her was enough to make me cry sitting at home editing these photos! That is how intense and honest this love story is. It rained, and it cleared up, and most importantly of all the weather had no effect on their day. It was… perfect.
