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...

fleur de lis

today i got to go and feast my eyes on flowers. it's always a nice change of pace when karen calls and i get to go take photos of her beautiful arrangements for her fab little shop in south portland called fleur de lis.
so here are a couple close ups that i loved. it was so very cold today that these flowers made everything better. sometimes it's the little things, you know.
