Love Story of Mary-Erin and Kai

August 06 • 2014

From emilie inc. on LulaWed:

I was so excited to see Mary-Erin and Kai since I hadn’t seen them together since their engagement session on Mackworth Island last fall.  These two have been busy, as Mary-Erin is the Executive Director of the State Democratic Committee, and Kai is an entrepreneur and part-owner of Buoy Local, a new company that supports local businesses.  They are total Portlanders, so it only made sense that they would marry here.
Mary-Erin got ready in her childhood home, an amazing older house in the heart of the East End, complete with narrow, steep staircases and beautiful architectural touches.  We headed from there to the ceremony, which was held at the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, where the bride grew up going to grammar school.  I loved that it was held in the smaller chapel off to the side, as it lent a cozy, familial feeling to the event.  After some quick portraits at the Eastern Prom, we drove up to Shady Lane Farm in New Gloucester for the cocktail hour and reception.  It was my first time shooting here, and I truly appreciated the rustic, farm-y vibe, complete with chickens and a sprawling hayfield.
The barn looked stunning with coral touches and succulents scattered along every surface.  Cafe lights strung low over the tables cast a warm light over the scene.  The evening lingered on in the most relaxed way, with meaningful toasts, delicious food, and finally some serious dancing.

Mary-Erin and Kai, I had such a lovely time with you two and hope to see you (and Mackworth) around town soon!
