Sarah & Joe :: Wedding at The Bethel Inn Resort in Bethel, Maine

Every so often, I run in to instances of "small world syndrome" when I find an obscure connection with someone. And then there are weddings, like Sarah and Joe's, when the connections just begin to be too numerous to count. Suffice to say that, between my husband and I, were knew the bride, bridesmaids, minister, and hairdresser. In fact, I'm sure I'm missing someone. It was like a big ol' reunion for me! But I'll save that for a blog post this winter.

Sarah and Joe are two genuine, down to earth people who were married with their family and friends surrounding them with love. The weather on the day of was overcast with a high chance of rain and thunderstorms. Eyes were looking out windows every chance they got. But mother nature had other plans for Sarah and Joe's day. The storms passed to the north and just barely missed us. Their entire day went off without a hitch. From the girls' gerbera daisy bouquets to the guys' unique boutonnieres to their first dance as husband and wife to the Irish dance tunes all the way to line dancing during the reception, I don't think they could have asked for a better way to start the next chapter of their life together. Even with the amazing lightning and rain storm that capped off their day at the end of the reception.

Sarah and Joe, thank you for letting me have the honor of capturing your day! I'm looking forward to hearing what happens next.

Amanda & Dan :: Wedding at Whisperwood Lodge in Belgrade and Winslow VFW in Waterville, Maine

Every fall I seem to find myself fall terribly behind on blog posts sharing all of the gorgeous and amazing weddings that I've had the honor to capture. Now that things are winding down, be prepared for some catch up posting!

Amanda and Dan were married on August 27th in at the quintessentially Maine, lakeside Whisperwood Lodge. These two love birds got engaged while out hunting with each other and their love of the sport definitely showed during their entire wedding. The bride's ladies wore stunning orange, strapless dresses while the groom's men and his sister wore amazing chocolate brown. The bouquets were tied with camouflage ribbon and the guys donned boutonnieres made with fishing lures.  Duck decoys were even basking in the lake behind them during the ceremony. The reception featured a gorgeous "birch bark" cake as well as a plethora of other hunting themed details perfectly matched for this outdoor loving couple.

Congratulations, once again, Amanda and Dan! I hope that your honeymoon in Northern Maine was relaxing!
