Cairsten & Jimmy's Vintage Nautical York Harbor Inn Wedding & Reception in York Maine

July 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Cairsten & Jimmy's wedding was a long time coming. I first met them at Kelly & Ryan's wedding in September of 2013. By January of 2014, they had booked me for their own wedding! Needless to say, the 18 months leading up to the wedding last weekend went by in a flash, especially since their engagement session at Bug Light in South Portland about a y...

Featured! in Brides Magazine for the Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine

July 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
This post has been sitting in the wings for over a year now. I'll be honest. It took me until this afternoon to see that I was even credited for the images! So I thought it was about time that I officially share it here. My photograph of The Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine, was published in their rankings of " The Best Wedding Venues in the...

June 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Here it is. The night before Cairsten & James tie the knot and get hitched! I instinctively thought back to their engagement session at Bug Light in South Portland, Maine, just shy of a year ago. I'll be honest. We started off with some good laughs just finding each other despite having met before! (Bug Light, just so you know, is not the one by th...

Planning in Advance: How early is too early?

June 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
As my 2015 season is well underway and bookings for 2016 have started, I am frequently asked how early is too early? If you are engaged now, is it too soon to book your vendors? The general summary is that it is rarely too early! For couples who are planning further in advance, I encourage them to get the process started as soon as they have their...

Christina & Peter :: Tented Garden Wedding in Buxton, Maine

June 18, 2015  •  1 Comment
Last weekend's wedding was eight(ish) months of planning, but I first met Christina & Peter back in November 2012 when Peter's brother, Kevin, married Beth. I absolutely love it when family members book me for multiple weddings because it feels like a family reunion to me to see them all again. And last weekend was no different. Christina & Peter w...

June 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Ally & Mark made one of my dreams come true last weekend. Yes, I know. It was their wedding day. Not mine. But when Ally contacted me 15 months prior to their wedding day almost immediately following their engagement, I jumped up and down in excitement as she told they were hoping to have their reception at Grace Restaurant in Portland, Maine. I'm...

Jonna & Dave :: Wedding & Reception in Poland, Maine (1 Year Later)

June 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I just can't believe it. I woke up this morning and my phone binged me. It's been ONE YEAR since Jonna & Dave tied the knot. WHAT?!? But I remember it all like it was yesterday. My initial panic when I pulled up to the house Jonna was getting ready in and momentarily thought I was at the wrong place. Backed up the long driveway. Double checked eve...

Why I Run

June 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
If you had asked me a year ago, are you a runner? Heck, do you exercise regularly? With juggling life with a toddler on top of everything else, I'll be honest... I would have honestly laughed out loud. I just didn't make either a priority. I have never been a runner. I was always dead last in gym class. Team training sprints in high school when I w...

Leah & Nick's long awaited wedding day at the Samoset Resort in Rockport was finally here. It certainly was a dramatic change from the hurricane that enveloped Kristine & Trevor's weddi...
