Sara & Brian’s Christmas Wedding

December 22 • 2014

There are many presents that we’ve wished for over the years at Christmas time: clothes, books, trips, new pets. But possibly the best present that we can think of for Christmas would be marrying the love of your life. And that’s exactly the present that Sara & Brian gave each other last Christmas!

The love at their wedding, which took place at the Phillips Exeter Academy Church and Zorvino Vineyard, was almost palpable. Melissa Koren, their wedding photographer, relates that her favorite part of the day was seeing Sara’s dad look at his daughter. She says, “every time he looked at her he was simply brimming with pride and you could read the memories of her growing up replaying in his eyes.” Absolutely beautiful.

Congratulations to Sara & Brian, and huge thank you to Melissa Koren Photography for sharing these lovely photos!

To some, the idea of hopping on a plane and traveling to a place you’ve never been to to say “I Do” might seem crazy, but Amber and Colin weren’t daunted in the least. This spontaneous couple decided to forego a large and expensive ceremony and instead decided to travel from their home in North Carolina to the beautiful state of Maine, a place that both of them had long wanted to visit. The couple brought along Amber’s sister to officiate and their photographers, Bethany & Dan, to act as witnesses. And bada-bing bada-boom, the two went from being single to married just like that.

Bethany & Dan enjoyed the wedding for many reasons, one of which was the honor of being able to act as witnesses and actually sign the wedding license, something that was on both of their bucket lists. After the ceremony, the Amber & Colin and their small entourage wandered around town, just seeing the sites (and finding a USPS box to mail their marriage license!). Talk about a low stress option for your wedding!

Congratulations to Amber & Colin, and big thanks to Bethany & Dan for sharing these wonderful photos!

    What a sweet little ceremony. I love Amber’s dress and Colin looks quite dashing. Bethany and Dan, you two did a great job!

While Stephanie and Shaun celebrated their wedding in Rhode Island at the beautiful Castle Hill Inn, their travel-themed wedding transported their guests around the world to places the couple had lived in. Stephanie and Shaun met while in Egypt, where they lived for years before having to flee the country due to the Arab Spring uprising. They eventually ended up in Hong Kong after doing much traveling. After all of their own traveling, and since they had friends from all over the world who had to travel for their wedding, it seemed only natural to celebrate world travel and diverse cultures in their wedding theme.

Postcards from numerous countries they’d visited dotted the dinner tables, and guests were invited to mark where they were from on vintage maps. The couple also wore authentic leis to reflect Stephanie’s Hawaiian heritage, and the bride and groom signs in the reception were written in Welsh to celebrate Shaun’s heritage. We love it!

Congratulations to Stephanie and Shaun and a huge thank you to Jaclyn L Photography for sharing these beautiful images with us!

Kate & Michael enjoyed a sunshine-filled summer wedding this July at the beautiful Newagen Seaside InnNewagen is conveniently located in Mid-Coast Maine in close proximity to Boothbay Harbor. Boothbay and the surrounding region is filled to the brim with activities to entertain you and your guests, such as a variety of different boating options, hiking trails, botanical gardens, an aquarium, and the famous Monhegan Island, which is well known for being the home and inspiration to many an artist.

Kate & Michael’s photographer, Bethany & Dan were kind enough to share their recollections of the day with us:

“There were a lot of fun details to this day, like the fact that Kate & Michael shipped in their favorite ice cream all the way from Ohio and the awesome cocktails that they served to pay homage to where the live, Manhattan! Our favorite detail of all was Kate’s dress. She wore a short dancing dress and then added a skirt over it for the ceremony that was made from her mothers wedding dress. It was incredibly unique and even more lovely.”

Congratulations to the happy couple, and a huge thank you to Bethany & Dan Photography for sharing these wonderful pictures with us!

Ashton & Mike married at The Landing at Pine Point in Scarborough, Maine, this past August. Their wedding is full of quirky and awesome details, like wine cork boutonnieres and fun socks for the groomsmen. Our favorite aspect of the wedding, however, is that it combines such bold, vibrant colors with touches of a 1920-inspired Gatsby look. For instance, notice Ashton’s adorable headband and chunky pearl accessories. Peacock feathers make an appearance in the bouquets and table centerpieces, and gold accents dot the reception area. Most impressively, though, Ashton & Mike achieved a classy feel that still retained elements of DIY, making it feel elegant yet approachable. Wonderful job all around!

Congratulations to Ashton & Mike, and a huge thank you to Carrie Pellerin Photography for sharing these beautiful images!

    Quirky is definitely the right word to use, but I love it. The colours of the older and younger bridesmaid dresses really catch the eye. And the colour theme throughout the whole setting is just brilliant. Loving the lemonade pot idea.
