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.
