One year anniversary<br><a href=http://www.peppersproutdesigns.com/ target=_blank>Jen Pepper</a>

We’re all about special celebrations here at Love & Lobster, and today we’re marking one of our own. It’s been one year since we first launched this site to share with couples everywhere the insider tips and expert advice that make weddings in coastal New England so memorable.

And because we love any excuse for a giveaway, we’ve got a *knockout* anniversary gift in store for one lucky reader. Keep reading for details…

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since we recounted what makes Maine such an extraordinary place to tie the knot in our inaugural post. Since then, we’ve covered everything from the practical (how to get a marriage license, eat a lobster), to the delicious (cocktails on Peaks Island, gluten-free cakes), to the offbeat (pole parties, tintype photography).  We’ve introduced you to couples like Jaime and AJ and Neena and Sam, who generously opened their wedding days and photo albums to us all. We’ve gotten an inside look at so many of the region’s wonderful vendors — Gus and Ruby Letterpress and Sperry Tents are just a couple that come to mind. And we’ve done our best to inspire you with a little eye candy and shout out to the fellas, too.

But some posts really stood out, wooing you away from work — ahem, leisure activities — more than any others. We give you the Love & Lobster Top Three:

We’d love to know what else you’d like to see L&L tackle. Leave us a comment with your location, relationship status, why you read and ideas for future posts!

As we enter our second year, we can’t wait to meet some of the growing list of brides and grooms who continue to click their way to us. But first, a special treat for those already familiar to L&L (We should get that monogrammed…maybe carved into ice).

Remember Minted.com? We profiled this stationery website, which features modern designs submitted by graphic designers all over the globe, earlier this year. In celebration of our anniversary, Minted is giving away 50 free invitations to one L&L reader! To enter, like us on Facebook and post your thoughts on this question: “What I love most about love and weddings in Maine is…” We’ll review the responses, with priority to those garnering the most likes from others, and announce the Minted winner at noon on Friday July 1. You’ve only got a week, so start submitting now!
