Jenny + Mike: The Sneak Peek

Jenny + Mike: The Sneak Peek

These last two months have been an insane whirlwind with seven weddings in eight weeks! Jenny and Mike's was the seventh of that series, and what an incredible day to end our run on!

Lindsay + Anthony: The Sneak Peek

I was beyond excited to shoot Lindsay and Anthony's wedding this past weekend—I had met them through one of my other favorite brides, Ashley, and I knew from seeing them in action at Ashley and Matt's wedding this past June just how much fun they were.

When we first met first Mark and then Kate in person for the first time on their wedding day, they each ran at Jess and I like we had known each other forever with warm hugs and a HUGE amount of excitement.

Alexa + Joe: The Sneak Peek

I've been waiting excitedly all year for Alexa and Joe's wedding (you may remember them as the couple in the canoe from my Lifestyle-category-voter-winning photo in DownEast Magazine's Reader Photo Contest last year)

Emma + Luke: The Sneak Peek

After weeks of humid weddings where it felt like my clothes were melting onto my body, it was a serious relief to wake up to a drier, cooler day yesterday!

Jordanna + Paul: The Sneak Peek

Jordanna + Paul: The Sneak Peek

I didn't think anything could match the heat and humidity of Sri Lanka, but Maine decided to give it a try on Jordanna and Paul's wedding day. But here's the thing: nothing was going to melt their buoyant mood: not the sticky air, not the glaring sun, not even the threat of thunderstorms. 

Laura + Greg: The Wedding

I first met Laura and Greg earlier this year, and while we did talk quite a bit about their wedding, what I really wanted to talk about were their awesome jobs: they met as archaeologists working for the same private contractor. Seriously, that's one of the coolest things ever! Fortunately they took time away from their latest dig to tie the knot at Point Sebago on Sebago Lake, and they couldn't have planned for a more perfect day. Laura made for a stunningly beautiful bride (and she's so quietly sweet, too!), and she shone like a jewel against the backdrop of the wooded lakeside lodge. Her wedding party was so much fun to hang with, and Chrissy--you're right up there in the hall of fame of Maids of Honor! <3 (And Joe, if I ever start a Hall of Fame of Best Men, you'd totally lead the pack of inductees!)

I'm so glad I was able to share the day with all of them--enjoy this glimpse into their day! Thank you, Laura and Greg!

Ashley + Matt: The Wedding

Ashley and Matt's wedding was one of those rare events where everything just seemed to go off without a hitch. Everyone was thrilled to be there and to be a part of sharing in their happiness, the weather was perfect, and the day flowed by seamlessly. I immediately felt like one of the girls, and Jess had a blast following the guys around Sugarloaf documenting their hilarity. 

Ashley's Maid of Honor, Laura, has known Ashley since they were infants (their grandfathers were friends!), and she took her job as MoH seriously, even making a beautiful box that she made sure was filled with letters to Ashley from her parents, her soon-to-be-in-laws, herself, and best of all, Matt. That set the tone for an emotional day full of the love Matt and Ashley clearly share, which included Matt's father and sister preparing a special song for them, and emotional, heartfelt toasts to their happiness from their closest friends. 

Jess and I loved working with them, their family, and all of their truly amazing friends (and just plain loved THEM), and we can't wait to see a bunch of them again at Lindsay and Anthony's wedding in September! Now without further ado, enjoy the gallery from this first step on their journey as husband and wife!
