spencer & corinne

spencer & corinne were married on a very cold january day, but the freezing temperature was irrelevant as they exchanged vows in the warmth of their love and the family and friends who gathered to celebrate this day. they are such a sweet and fun couple. corinne loves 80's music (like me!) and showed her appreciation of good music all night! here are a few of my favorites from the day...

they held the ceremony and reception at the portland company complex.
the catering was expertly done by evelyn of catering by evelyn

it was about 7 degrees in this old store room...i was moving so fast to get them back into the heated reception room. they were real troopers though!

kevin & jenny's october wedding

i have been remiss in my blogging lately. i have been distracted by creating wedding albums! apologies to all.
so here are my favorites from a wedding in october. kevin and jenny were a real delight and i am so lucky that i met them. working with them was a breeze since they were just SO in love and happy. they gave me plenty of time to take photos in between the ceremony and reception so we went to several locations and had great fun!! the whole group was just happy, ready to party, and up for anything. i love going to downtown portland to shoot as i always find something new. jenny picked out a couple of these spots ahead of time...she has a good eye.
thanks again to both of you for having me capture your day...what a beautiful one it was.

the reception was at the portland club. a really lovely place in downtown portland. the fabulous food was beautifully presented by black tie catering. the floral arrangements were done by flora . fauna and all i can say is "wow". and a special thanks to my friend and fellow photographer michael berube' of good photos.com for all his help that day. i was so lucky to have him help and give me such great ideas too!

jim & connie's ocean side wedding, boothbay harbor, maine

jim & connie had an amazingly beautiful day to renew their love and vows. the sun was big on the ocean that day and big in their hearts. they were a perfectly sweet and kind couple that i loved spending the day with. we spent time at his parents home in boothbay harbor getting ready and then everyone returned after the ceremony for a break before dinner so that we could get those great beach shots! yah for the rocky maine coast! the ceremony was at 'our lady queen of peace' right downtown. so perfectly picturesque. and her father was able to be the officiant for the ceremony. such a wonderfully family oriented day. the couple decided they wanted to arrive at 'the chowder house' in style so we went by boat...of course! i loved that they just sat back and enjoyed the ride, talking to each other and waving to other folks out on the water. they were so relaxed. they had a good old fashioned maine lobster bake to finish off the night and blueberry pies to complete the experience. a wonderful maine themed day. cheers to many years of happiness! -jen
