Meghan & Shane :: Wedding & Reception at DiMillo's in the Old Port of Portland, Maine

I first met Meghan & Shane in October of last year to chat about their wedding. What struck me the most about them right from the start was how genuine they were and just how well matched they are for each other. Ok, and maybe Shane's smile did, too. We followed up our cup of coffee with a chilly engagement session in Limington, Maine that surprisingly did not result in icicles at the end of our noses. Flash forward to August 25th and the chill was replaced with the most perfect summer weather that they could have asked for.

Meghan got ready with her ladies at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland with an absolutely amazing view of the Old Port. Between the hair spray from all of the up-dos and the bubbly in the mimosas, there were more than enough laughs and smiles going around. Once the primping had concluded and Meghan was in to her stunning gown, it was game time! They held their ceremony and reception at the most quintessential Maine restaurant, DiMillo's, right on the waterfront in the Old Port. The majority of the guests were traveling in to town to celebrate with the lovebirds and they wanted to make it a true Maine destination party for them. And I dare say they got their wish! From the seashell themed centerpieces and amazingly yummy cake from The European Bakery to the stunning view of the waterfront... the entire day was very "Maine".

Congratulations, Meghan & Shane, and thank you so very much for letting me be a part of your day!

Be on the lookout for all of the photos to be ready shortly. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek from their wedding day. To see more, be sure to head over to my Facebook page and hit the “Like” button!
