Oh. My. Goodness. It has been over a year since I have been looking forward to Molly & Scott's wedding. I knew through our email correspondence that these two love birds planning their wedding "from away" were perfect for me. Their vision of their wedding day and their story of meeting at City Year had me hook line and sinker. I met them in October of last year at Two Lights State Park for their engagement session and spent a few hours exploring the rocky coastline with them. It made me want to fast forward to this past weekend even faster! They are such an adorable, kind hearted couple!Read More
Well over a year ago, Hillary reached out to me across the ether in the early stages of planning her Maine wedding with George from a land far away. As someone who works with a number of couples "from away" every year, crafting a relationship with these two love birds since then, despite not having met them, was second nature. It goes without saying that arriving at Hair Station to meet up with Hillary and her ladies felt like meeting up with an old friend.Read More
The journey that led Lindsey & Ryan to Saturday, August 12th, may have been long, twisty, and sometimes uncertain. Yet I dare say that the trip was meant to be and well worth it for both of them. From when they first contacted me back in January, there was something about their story that resonated with me. Add in vision for a wedding ceremony held beneath the tall trees at the adorable Little River Flower Farm and I just knew that I had to capture their long awaited union.Read More
Although my relationship with the lovely Sarah & Sam began in August of 2015, the small world type connections through Sarah's friendships actually connect them back to my very first couple back in 2008. To say it was kismet that Alan and I were there with them on their wedding day would be an understatement. After meeting them in a video chat, I was practically jumping up and down hoping they would select me (which they did obviously). Then came their engagement session at my beloved Two Lights State Park and I was making happy noises from just about the first shot.Read More
Thinking back on Rachel & David's nautically inspired wedding just shy of three weeks ago, a smile instantly comes over my face. And how could it not with a wedding this awesome and a couple this cool. I knew that I wanted to be their photographer way back in September of 2015 when Rachel and I met for a cup of coffee and chatted about their day, how they met, and seemingly a wide range of topics beyond wedding preparations for well over an hour. Arriving for her bridal preparations on their wedding day was truly like meeting up with a long time friend. I love it when that happens!Read More
When Jessika reached out to me back in March, she snatched up one of my last 2016 dates available for her intimate wedding with Eric at the gorgeous Mooring Bed & Breakfast in Georgetown, Maine. Like many of my couples, they were planning their wedding weekend from away. As Jessika shared her vision for their day, I knew that we were going to be a perfect match for each other. The past three months flew by and this past weekend, all of their planning came to life.
Jessika & Eric's wedding overlooking the ocean was filled with more personal touches than I could recount. From Eric's gift of a locket (yes, we all cried) to Jessika's borrowed blue sea star broach on her dress; their children standing by their side as they said their vows to their long time friend officiating the formalities; bridal portraits at the incredible Reid State Park and a reception filled with special touches. Every aspect of the day perfectly reflected Jessika & Eric and helped to tell the story of their long journey to that day.
Looking back, the time that will stay with me the longest will be what their dear friend shared as she was marrying them. Although Jessika & Eric have known each other for a long time, it took them until now to come together. In her speech, their friend equated their relationship to that of glass turning into sea glass. Glass itself is created for a multitude of purposes from windows to bottles and more. Some of that glass winds up broken and in the ocean where, after many years, it comes out as the frosted, highly sought after sea glass that many comb the beaches of Maine for every year. In order to get to that point, it had to be broken, tumbled, and tossed around a bit. It's path was not easy. Yet it is oh so worth it for the beauty we see on our shores. I dare say that it was the perfect metaphor for these two as they start this new chapter of their lives together.
Jessika & Eric, thank you so very much for trusting me capture the story of your wedding day. I am so very honored to have been able there with you both. Enjoy your family-moon with the Mouse!
