Southern Maine Summer Wedding • Lisa + Michael • Scarborough, Maine Wedding Photography

After a frigid Maine winter, we are pretty darn thrilled that it is finally the start of spring! We’ve been dreaming of daffodils for days now, and it only seems appropriate to blog about a wedding full of smiling people and gorgeous blooms in celebration of the warming days!  Lisa and Michael met through a mutual friend and after their very first blind date, the rest was history!

Lisa and Michael’s day was all about love (obviously!) and uniting family. The couple chose to have the five children they share between them as their wedding party ❤

August served up the perfect weather for their quaint backyard wedding at a friend’s property in Scarborough. That very same weather also provided perfect conditions for Michael to ride his motorcycle to the ceremony!

After a heartfelt ceremony under a grape arbor, guests moved into the funky, rustic barn and surrounding garden for cocktail hour, complete with lawn games, a photo booth and a few curious onlookers.

The hay bales, which had been artfully draped with a blush fabric for creative outdoor ceremony seating, served another purpose for the rest of the evening….

I loved the bundled silverware, hand tied with a sprig of rosemary, which symbolizes love and loyalty.

Two Lights State Park • Maine Wedding Photography • Kathleen + Matt

Kathleen and Matt got married on a beautiful spring day in May. We started our day with the couple at their home in Portland, where they were finishing up preparing for the big event.  Kathleen wore a stunning  vintage dress, from 1927, which her mother had purchased at an estate sale nearly a decade ago. As you will see, the dress looks like it was made for Kathleen – it fit her perfectly, and required no alterations. Instead of a veil, Kathleen wore a delicate, Art Nouveau-inspired head-piece, which suited her so well. Kathleen’s lovely friend, Barbara Campanale, added the final touches to Kathleen’s look, styling her makeup, and setting the head-piece just right.   Kathleen+Matt-24

Matt intended to wear a souped up Windsor Knot (double? triple? I don’t even know!)  As many fellows do, Matt consulted youtube, to make sure he got his tie perfect! (And he did – good job Matty!)

My favorite piece of Matt’s ensemble were his awesome Fluevogs. Once I set sight on Matt’s kicks, I was immediately curious about his socks, and I couldn’t help asking… I was not disappointed!

Kathleen and Matt chose to hold a private ceremony for their closest friends and family at the edge of the ocean. Their group caravanned to Two Lights State Park, and proceeded to the ceremony site together.

After spending some QT with their closest friends + family, Kathleen + Matt made their way back to their place, where they hosted a tented Bohemian Art Nouveau themed party at their house. At this point in the evening, we (who happen to be friends with these two great people) transitioned to guests, and another photographer arrived to capture the party.  Instead of having a sit down meal, Kathleen and Matt opted to have continuous, awesome noshing throughout the entire evening. They had spectacular food, created by a bunch of local chefs. Some of my favorites included seared tuna, sushi, an antipasto platter of obscure smoked meats, olives – the list goes on. Tim loved the grilled salmon and the BLT sliders. Hands down, the food was amazing!! Kathleen + Matt also featured a signature period cocktail, the Ward 8, a delicious concoction of rye whiskey, citrus juices and grenadine. These two know how to throw a party!

We were really honored to photograph this tight-knit ceremony. (And I’m not gonna lie, it was awesome to be a wedding guest too!)  Congrats Kathleen + Matt! We love you! Thanks for the “happy memories…”
