Tonda & Chuck :: Wedding at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine

Tonda & Chuck were married at the gorgeous Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. From Tonda's stunning Maggie Sottero to the perfect centerpieces and flowers to the sparkler send off at the end of the night, Tonda & Chuck could not have asked for a better day. It was perfect! 

Here is a sneak peek of what is to come from their picture perfect wedding day.

Thank you so much, Tonda & Chuck, for letting me be a part of your amazing day! I hope you had a blast cruising in Alaska!

Christie & Patrick :: Wedding at the Peter McKernan Hospitality Center in South Portland, Maine

Christie and Patrick were married at the Peter McKernan Hospitality Center on the Southern Maine Community College campus in South Portland, Maine. I first met the love birds over a cup of coffee and a french cruller. As they told me their story, the whole idea of opposites attracting was blaring in my head. They met in the Old Port on a New Year's Eve. Patrick was in a band and Christie was out celebrating with friends. He's a classic rocker while she'd rather blare the latest hits. She loves lots of mascara and lip gloss while his hair is normally just as wild as his faces while he plays the drums. And yet they fit together like peanut butter and jelly.

It might have been over 100 degrees the day before the wedding, but mother nature was on our side for the big day and brought in some [very slightly] cooler temperatures. From Christie's gorgeous flower in her hair (made from her dress after alterations were done) to her Matron of Honor Clare's speech and from Patrick's huge smile whenever he looked at Christie to the fabulous cake (from Let Them Eat Cake) and flowers (from Heather Caron Floral Design), I don't think the day could have been any more perfect at all.

Here is a sneak peek of what the Newlyweds have to look forward to from their wedding day. I'll let the photos speak for themselves!

Lani & Nathan :: Backyard Wedding in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire

Lani and Nathan.... where do I even start? Honestly, I could gush about these two (and their amazing families) for pages and pages. Lani first contacted me about their wedding in her hometown of Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, last summer. Being a bride (and groom) planning from out of state, we spent a long time emailing back and forth about their vision for their day and, of course, about what their interests were (besides each other). They met while in the Caribbean, they both love the outdoors, they love their family.... oh, yes, and he's a (fantastic, super amazing) nature photographer. No pressure! But any pressure that I was feeling leading up to the day (and, yes, I was certainly feeling it) disappeared as soon as I met them. Nathan is a warm hearted guy deeply in love with the absolutely stunning Lani. They are both the most genuine people I have ever met. Together, they just glow. You could tell just by the way they looked at each other that they are bonded deep down.

And that is how the whole day was. Filled with this glow that emanated from all of their loved ones that traveled from far and wide to be there to witness the start of this new chapter. Coming home to Lani's hometown and the backyard of her parent's gorgeous home was a natural decision. The entire day fit them like a well worn, toasty winter glove.

Lani and Nathan (and family), thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day as your two families officially joined together. You are absolutely incredible individuals and a power house as you come together. I am incredibly honored to have been there to witness it. I cannot wait to see where your adventures take you next. I know it will be amazing.
