cape elizabeth

bridgette & dan, sept 4th, 2010, inn by the sea

bridgette and dan's day was much anticipated as was the hurricane, earl, that was to show up on the same day. the ceremony was to be on cresent beach in cape elizabeth so, of course, we were just wondering if we would even set foot on the sand.

not only did they get married on the beach, but it was a glorious day! bright sun and bright blue skies to match with perfect puffy clouds. the two of them were so in love they had big tears during the ceremony. so sweet they were. i do love love!

there was a beautiful tented reception and dinner after which we went back out to the ocean and sunset view for a few more shots.

location & dinner: inn by the sea

flowers: fluer de lis (fabulous as usual!!)

congratulations on your new life together bridgette and dan!!

dominique & alissa, intimate home wedding incape elizabeth, maine

when i met alissa to talk about the how she met dominique she told me an amazing story which i will try and put in a nutshell here. it starts with a song that she was obsessed with, the disappearance of the song for several years and the subsequent finding again. there is a man involved in some way that she becomes friends with online who says that she simply must meet his friend who animated the video for the song. she married the talented and sweet animator of the video.

life is funny like that. you never know when something that touches you deeply, like music, may lead to your meeting the love of your life. that's what makes love so wonderful. it is always out there just waiting to happen...

i was so honored to be part of their day. it was an intimate seaside wedding in the home she grew up in with all small group of friends and family. everyone was so happy. it was just lovely to watch.

and i love that they put down a dance floor in the dining room and danced all night...

jeff & margot, rainy-day-cape-sprague-love!

jeff and margot have to be two of the most loved and in love people i have ever met. the wedding was to take place outside at sprague farm, in cape elizabeth, maine. however that day it poured rain. it didn't matter. the love from the two of them and all their friends was simply amazing. it made the world feel like such a wonderful place to live in. dramatic yes, but so very true. i think you can see it in the photos...just look at them looking at each other. i love LOVE.

the tent was magical. the arrangements were overflowing with color and vibrance. they were done by little river flower farm. the food was as elegant as the atmosphere provided by the kitchen chicks . the party got started with the toughcats and they were so much fun! then the pace was kept up by the chicken slacks-strange name-great band, great fun!

thank you margot and jeff for giving me the honor to capture your day....

kim & garrett, engagement shots

kim & garrett are getting married next may. the wedding will be in auburn, maine with the reception being outside at his parents home. i love weddings at the family home. it just makes the day that much more special...to be surrounded by all that is personal and close to the family is comforting. i am hoping their 3 dogs will be there as well. the told me they started with a little one, added a spaniel, and then adopted a dobermen. small, medium, and large! i can't wait for the wedding. until then....
