Emily & Coleman's Wedding at Mariner's Church in Portland's Old Port

Emily & Coleman's Wedding at Mariner's Church in Portland's Old Port

Almost a year ago, Emily reached out to me about her wedding and we met over coffee shortly thereafter. Meeting felt like hanging out with an old friend. I loved hearing the story of how Coleman proposed in front of their dishwasher and of their plans for their wedding ceremony at Holy Cross where they first met. Fast forward almost a year and the big day was finally here this past Saturday. I met Coleman for the first time while he and his guys were partaking in the usual wedding day shenanigans (including Holy Donuts, I might add). They had me in stitches within moments of my arrival at his parent's house! Afterwards, I met Emily at her home to capture her last moments before slipping on her wedding gown from Andrea's Bridal. With the Portland Discovery trolley's arrival, they were quickly whisked off to Holy Cross for Emily to marry her best friend.

Lindsey & Ryan's Little River Flower Farm Wedding in Buxton, Maine

Lindsey & Ryan's Little River Flower Farm Wedding in Buxton, Maine

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.

Jordan & Colin's Ocean Gateway Wedding in Portland, Maine

Jordan & Colin's Ocean Gateway Wedding in Portland, Maine

Full disclosure. I delivered Jordan & Colin's full gallery to them weeks ago at this point from their November 12th wedding have not yet posted their full sneak peek. I hope you'll forgive me, but I was focusing on having the images wrapped up well before the holidays. ;-)

I have been emailing back and forth with Jordan since she first contacted me back in August of 2015. So, when we first got together in person in October, it was certainly like meeting up with an old friend to catch up. Easy to get along with would be an understatement!

Ashley & Jeff :: Wedding & Reception at The 1812 Farm in Bristol, Maine

On June 23, 2012, I was driving up to the perfect 1812 Farm in Bristol, Maine, for Ashley & Jeff's wedding when mother nature started spitting rain drops at me. To say I was not impressed would be an understatement. A quick check of the radar and a prayer later, it seemed like we might luck out. And we did. The storms that swept across Maine somehow missed us in Bristol and made for a perfect day. Ashley & Jeff tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony next to the pond and fountain behind The 1812 Farm. The colors of the bridesmaids' dresses and the gorgeous bouquets popped against the otherwise muted colors caused by the overcast sky. Ashley's smile was bright enough to light up a room. Jeff was beaming with love for his gorgeous bride. Did I say the day was perfect? Well, it was. The reception that followed featured the delicious food from Stone Cove Catering, a gorgeous cake from Nothing Bakes like a Parrott, and a packed dance floor thanks to tunes spun by Dan Giroux. I dare say that the day was one that Ashley & Jeff's family and friends will never forget!

Congratulations, Ashley & Jeff (& Evan, too)! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day. It was an absolute honor! I hope that you are enjoying Jamaica, especially with the rain taking over the weather in Maine this week. I'm so jealous!


And, Kari & Dustin, I can't wait for your wedding in 3 short months. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again!
