Heather & John

Saturday, June 20th, the weather managed to hold off for us, yet again, in honor of Heather and John's wedding day! A late afternoon ceremony was held at the Immanuel Baptist Church followed by an evening reception at The Eastland Park Hotel.

Heather and her bridesmaids were so much fun to hang out with before the ceremony. They were busy getting hair finished, make-up applied and dressed... all while periodically taking time to play with the two flower girls (who should be applauded for their incredible patience!!). :) Heather even made time to help the flower girls with their make-up.

A surprise gift from John...

As you can see, Heather was pretty excited about it! :)

Then it was time to head to the church.

There was a little nervous energy as John and his groomsmen prepared for the big event. They soon made quick work of getting dressed, though and they were off to do some formals before going to the church.

A little after 4pm, the ceremony was underway. This church is filled with the most beautiful stained glass and it was a wonderfully romantic setting as Heather and John exchanged their vows.

We accomplished a handful of family formals after the ceremony. (BIG thanks to the best man for all his help in keeping people organized and ready to go!) Then we spent a few minutes with the bridal party and just the bride and groom before heading in to the reception.

It was a spectacular wedding! The Bob Charest Band had everyone on the dance floor all night (as always) and the crowd was shouting for more as the reception ended! Everyone had a great time with Heather and John on this day. It was so clear just how much these two mean to all of their family and friends.

We wish you both continued happiness in the years to come!

Andrea & Jon

After days of rain and a morning of continued showers, the downpours finally gave way to beautiful billowy white clouds and bright blue sky... in perfect timing and harmony with Andrea and Jon's wedding day celebration. On Saturday, May 30th this very sweet couple exchanged vows in a picturesque backyard setting in Wells overlooking the salt marsh and ocean in the distance.

Andrea and her maid of honor were working on some last-minute details and preparations when we arrived. From the home-made favors to the flower girls' floral headpieces, Andrea had put a personal touch into every aspect of this day.

Once the rest of the bridesmaids arrived, they made quick work of getting dressed and ready for pictures before Jon and his groomsmen arrived. We took a few pictures of Andrea with her family and bridesmaids before she ducked out of sight until the ceremony.

Jon and his groomsmen arrived by limo ready for formals and then had a few moments to relax before the ceremony began.

The ceremony took place in the late afternoon with the couple surrounded by their close friends and family.

Then we had some time for formals of the family and bridal party. Andrea and Jon also wanted to escape for a short time during dinner to go down to the beach as the sun went down.

It was such a lovely wedding day! There were so many special touches to this celebration... and so many cameras!!! Andrea and Jon will surely have tons of great images to remember their day.

We wish you both continued happiness and a wonderful life together!!
