Colleen & Peter

Like so many days this summer, Colleen and Peter’s wedding day was no exception… beautiful, bright, blue skies and glorious sunshine! Saturday, August 14th, Boothbay Harbor flaunted a spectacular backdrop for their celebration. The church ceremony was about the only traditional part of the entire day. The reception, held at The Chowder House, provided a fun and funky setting for their guests to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of quintessential Maine. The bride and groom arrived to their party by lobster boat, enjoyed some truly wonderful, heart-felt toasts (with pink champagne… Colleen’s favorite color), sliced into some gourmet whoopie pies (in lieu of cake) and rocked the harbor with the outstanding rhythms and energy of Sugarfoot. It was a truly special occasion and we’re so honored to have been a small part of it.  Congratulations and many blessings to you both!!

Molly & Evan

Saturday, August 7th celebrated the wedding day of Molly and Evan on Peaks Island.  Planning a wedding is no small task in and of itself; but, factor in relocating, grad school, exams and planning an island wedding long-distance... to many, it would seem impossible!!  Somehow, despite it all, Molly and Evan managed to pull together a truly spectacular celebration!  Molly wore her grandmother's veil which was absolutely stunning on her and she altered her mother's wedding gown to wear as her departure dress.  It was so wonderful to see how she incorporated so many special touches into the day.  From chartering a trolley to come over on the ferry to accomodate their guests, to the magical sparkler send-off at the end of the evening... it was a fantastic event from start to finish.  Oh, and let's not forget the amazing sunset from Jones Landing!!  Congratulations to you both... only 1,300 more Tuesdays to your 25th anniversary! :)

Sunset Engagement Portrait

When we heard my cousin, Jeff, got engaged earlier this year, we were completely ecstatic!!  Our first glimpse of them since their engagement was just last week when they came into town for a small family reunion.  Of course, we gave them very little time to relax once they arrived.  As the sun set over Portland Head Lighthouse, we managed to capture some quick engagement pics of the two of them.  And, then we snuck over to Ferry Beach for the last bit of light on the horizon.  Jeff and his fiance, Meredith, are getting married next July in Philadelphia... we can't wait!!  Congratulations, you two - we love you both so much!
