I swear that last weekend must be a dream. The weather was perfect; puffy white clouds in the crystal blue sky, a breeze off the ocean, and everything was in bloom. 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 wedding the last time I was at the Samoset Resort in 2009.
I first met Leah & Nick at her brother's wedding in 2013. I was instantly taken by how genuine they both were. I knew then that I would not want to miss their wedding when the day came. Needless to say, I was beyond thrilled when Leah contacted me over a year ago asking if I was available. Obviously my answer was an enthusiastic yes! And the past year has flown by so fast; between the emails flying between the three of us and a get together at Novare Res in Portland, it was like reuniting with best friends come the day of.
Leah was absolutely stunning in her sky high Manolo Blahnik cobalt blue stilettos and her sterling organza bridal gown from the White by Vera Wang line at David's Bridal (VW351178) with her bridal jewelry from Etsy. Hoboken Gardens created perfect floral arrangements that complimented the vintage-inspired look for their Maine coastal wedding. Add all of the amazing details to the classic Maine wedding venue of the Samoset Resort in Rockport and it really was a dream wedding in every way. I could not have asked for a better way to kick off my 2015 wedding season than with the two of them and the rock star team they assembled to make it all happen.
Nick & Leah, thank you for having Alan and me there with you for your wedding. It was such an honor! I hope you are having a blast on your honeymoon! The photos you've shared with me thus far are making us want to buy a ticket and go there, too.
