Published! Leah & Nick's Samoset Resort Wedding Flowers featured in Real Maine Weddings July 2016 Issue

I have been anxiously checking my mailbox for a few weeks now waiting for the July 2016 issue of Real Maine Weddings to arrive. Well, what is the one way you can guarantee it will come? Go out of town for a few days!

It is with tons of excitement that I can finally share that Suzanne Simmons Photography is gracing the pages of Real Maine Weddings for the second issue in a row! And, even more exciting, I can say that my beloved second shooter, best friend and husband of (almost) nine years can say that he has been published. Alan is the one that captured Leah & Nick's gorgeous flowers from Hoboken Gardens before their seaside wedding at the Samoset Resort in Rockland, Maine last summer. To say he was excited to see his work in print is certainly an understatement. Great job, Alan!

To go along with their arbor, Real Maine Weddings also featured Leah's gorgeous bouquet, which she held during her bridal portraits on the jetty after their ceremony. I loved how Hoboken Gardens blended their color palate together to create such classic arrangements that complimented the feeling of the timeless Samoset Resort. They really did a fantastic job, as they always do.

You'll find their photos on pages 8, 51, and 56 in the printed version at your local newsstand or you can check out the featured photographs in the electronic version here.

Leah & Nick, thank you for choosing us to capture your incredible wedding and thank you to Hoboken Gardens for creating such gorgeous works of art for us to capture.

Leah & Nick :: Spring Wedding on the Coast at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine

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.

It was so hard to narrow down their entire day to just a sneak peek of what is to come. What an amazing day! Be sure to follow Suzanne Simmons Photography on Facebook and Instagram, too.

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.

Kristine & Trevor

Kristine and Trevor tied the knot on October 3rd at the beautiful Samoset Resort. Everything about the day was absolutely perfect once you look past the rain, which couldn't keep these two lovebirds inside. Kristine even had I Do Spas from Augusta, Maine, come to the hotel to do their hair, make up, and nails that morning. Everyone had such a great time, me included! Everything looked absolutely amazing all the way down to the detail oriented table arrangements at dinner. Thank you so much, Kristine and Trevor, for letting me be a part of your big day. It truly was an honor. I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!
