On Saturday, September 6, despite the threat of tropical storm Hanna racing up the East Coast, Maura and Matt had a beautiful wedding day! A traditional Catholic church service at Sacred Heart in Portland was followed by an eagerly anticipated reception at The Portland Club.
Maura had all but finished preparations when I arrived. Her mom was making some final adjustments to her sash while her bridesmaids made quick work of pulling together any last minute necessities. We headed outside for a few pictures and then it was off to the church.
Maura's 'something old' was her grandmother's handkerchief which she carried with her bouquet.
Tige was at the church with the groom and his groomsmen capturing a few formals of them before the bride's arrival.
Once the bride arrived, the groom took his place at the altar with his best man and the ceremony was quickly underway.
Once the ceremony was over and some family formals were done, we had a little time left to photograph some casual shots of the bride and groom.
Then, it was off to the reception fun! They had a fantastic band - Two Bass Jon - who had the entire room out on the dance floor. I think it's safe to say these two put on a very special celebration to honor their wedding day and make it one their family and friends will always remember! We wish you all the best for a wonderful few days in Bermuda!! And, we know you'll have a wonderful life together - you complement eachother so well - Congratulations!!
