Amanda & Michael :: Wedding at the Purpoodock Club in Cape Elizabeth, Maine

Amanda and Michael might live in the midwest, but they came back home to their home state to tie the knot at the gorgeous Purpoodock Club in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. To start the day, Amanda got ready at her sister's boyfriend's home, which is absolutely gorgeous! The guy has impeccable taste. The girls settled in under the shade of the umbrella on his back patio. It was such a relaxing place and the perfect way to begin such an incredible day. Amanda's sister did a fantastic job on Amanda's hair! And check out Amanda's incredibly cute nail polish! Credit goes to Lucinda's Day Spa for doing such an incredible job.

  • The groomsmen apparently needed a lot of help with their wardrobe (according to their wives). After putting on the finishing touches, being the on time gentlemen that they are, Michael spent a few moments with his groomsmen before the ceremony. It was certainly their idea to pick him up!

  • Amanda's Dress was downright stunning on the hanger never mind once she put it on. I loved the simplicity of it!

  • Amanda is her daddy's little girl. Once she was all ready, the ladies left her and her father to have a moment together (with me in tow). As soon as he walked through the door, the waterworks started on both sides. It was such an incredibly special moment!

  • The weather was absolutely perfect for Amanda and Michael. She couldn't wait to get around the corner to see Michael!

  • The very personal and touching ceremony definitely brought tears to many eyes. She promised to always let him push the shopping cart and he promised to always share his pickles.

  • The awesome candy bar also made for incredible building tools for this table of guests who must have lived in medieval times in a prior life. They were a blast to watch!

  • The super cute cake was also incredibly yummy. And check out their topper! So appropriate for this Harley Davidson riding pair.

  • Amanda and Michael held an anniversary dance and two couples wound up tying for being married the longest. If memory serves me, they have each been married for over 60 years! Talk about a good example to set for the newlyweds.

Amanda and Michael, thank you so much for letting me play a part in your amazing day. It was most certainly my honor to see all of your planning come to life. Congratulations, Newlyweds! I hope that you enjoyed your time in Maine and had a safe journey back west.

Crystal & Jason :: Wedding at Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, New Hampshire

Crystal and Jason were married at the gorgeous Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, New Hampshire, followed by a reception in the carriage house. The entire day was amazing from the views behind the bride and groom during the ceremony all the way to Jason's high school friends' dance moves! It was a great day!

I dare say that Crystal never missed a single detail. They gave her son, Brandon, a necklace during the ceremony and said vows with him. She included a kids table to keep all of the munchkins occupied. The centerpieces were made of birchbark with fresh lilacs from their hometown in Maine. The candy bar was stocked with all of their guests' favorites. Her dress was absolutely incredible and fit in perfectly with the Castle (I'll point out that she bought her dress prior to William and Kate's nuptials). Crystal's mother made the wedding cake (talk about a talented woman!) and Jason's mother helped with the favors and other details of the day. Add the amazing weather to the mix and you have the recipe for their perfect wedding.

Thanks you, Crystal and Jason (and Brandon), for letting me capture your special day together. You two have taken a long path to get here, but I dare say it was so worth it in the end.

Here is a sneak peek of some of the hundreds of images from their day. Don't forget to check out their gallery on, and "like", my Facebook page. The rest of their photos can be seen in their full gallery on my website (if you have their password).
