On Saturday, October 18th - a brisk and beautiful Fall day - Stephanie and Gareth exchanged their wedding vows. The ceremony was held on the grounds of Camp Northstar in Poland Spring with a reception following at the rustic and romantic Cliffside Lodge overlooking some spectacular foliage and beautiful ponds. Each detail of their celebration was carefully planned and wonderfully creative! These two have such spirit and love for each other, it's difficult to capture it with mere words. It was an incredible honor for us to be a part of their day!
Gareth and the groomsmen were MIA in the morning... There were rumors of bowling shirts and a quest for some candlepin bowling lanes - but, when no bowling alley was located, there was some story involving all the guys in a cornfield somewhere. The details are a bit fuzzy, but, they made it back in plenty of time to get prepped and ready for the big event.
The ceremony was very simple and sweet. Stephanie and Gareth each wrote their own vows and managed to read them flawlessly! It added a very personal and intimate touch for the gathering of family and friends who witnessed their marraige.
The reception was beautifully decorated and arranged by family and friends. The couple was greeted with many toasts from parents, siblings and friends. Each toast was full of love and celebration for this special day! We were so struck by how many lives Stephanie and Gareth have impacted with their kindness, laughter and generous nature. We wish you both all the best for a wonderful and happy life together!! Thank you so much for including us in your celebration!

Maggie was just about to put on her gown when I got to her room. There were a few adjustments to be made and some lip gloss to apply before we headed to the gazebo for some pre-ceremony formals.
This bit of lace wrapped around Maggie's bouquet was extremely special to her - it's been worn by 3 generations of brides on her mother's side.
Maggie's bridesmaids were amazing!! There was a last minute stop to make before the ceremony started - and I must say - these girls give a whole new meaning to the term 'team work'!!
It was a spectacular day for a wedding! Congratulations Maggie and Peter!! We wish you many more happy celebrations throughout your life together.
