SMCC All Faiths Chapel Wedding •Heidi + Mark• South Portland Wedding Photographer

Heidi and Mark chose to have an intimate ceremony, uniting themselves and their families, at the sweet SMCC All Faiths Chapel. It was a warm fall day with blue skies…ideal for taking a boat ride in Casco Bay, eating cupcakes and getting married in Maine, of course!Heidi_Mark-0004Heidi_Mark-0012Heidi_Mark-0015Heidi_Mark-0026On the way to the ceremony, a ladybug landed on Heidi’s daughter, Sadie. We unanimously agreed that it was a symbol of being lucky in love, and was welcome on our ride to the chapel.

Maine Maritime Museum Wedding •Laura + Nate• Bath Maine Wedding Photographer

After our initial exchanges, Laura and I discovered we had a lot in common…from a summer spent in Alaska, being aspiring surfers, nature-lovers and oysters (well, I love to eat ’em on the half shell, and Laura monitors oyster growing for the health department, so she knows better and doesn’t eat them that way 🙂 ) Laura and Nate planned their wedding from Washington State, heading east to marry in Maine, where Laura spent part of her childhood.  Laura and Nate’s wedding day was shrouded in a romantic fog and some light drizzle, which made for some lovely atmospheric photos. And, it certainly didn’t extinguish their adventurous spirit. They still crawled over wet rocks and climbed up giant lobster traps to get the shots! Here’s a peek at their perfect day!

Loved this moment when Nate adjusted his ring, to his left ring finger following the ceremony 🙂LauraAndNate-0272 LauraAndNate-0313 LauraAndNate-0327 LauraAndNate-0334 LauraAndNate-0337 LauraAndNate-0342

Navigating slippery rocks in heels was no obstacle for Laura. And Nate owned it as a new husband, bustling her dress ❤ LauraAndNate-0343 LauraAndNate-0355 LauraAndNate-0358 LauraAndNate-0379 LauraAndNate-0382

As Laura and Nate are avid outdoor adventurers and rock climbers, we couldn’t resist this photo opp.LauraAndNate-0390 LauraAndNate-0392 LauraAndNate-0397 LauraAndNate-0415 LauraAndNate-0416 LauraAndNate-0422 LauraAndNate-0426 LauraAndNate-0459 LauraAndNate-0475 LauraAndNate-0499 LauraAndNate-0503 LauraAndNate-0544 LauraAndNate-0550
