The love story of Ali and Cory

Ali & Cory

8.18.12

Southern Maine Community College, South Portland, ME

Ali and Cory knew when they got engaged that they wanted to incorporate details from the two places they loved most: Maine, where Cory grew up and where the wedding would be located, and Maryland, their home. When they started the planning process they tried to keep in mind that weddings are more than just logistics and budgets. They looked forward to the wonderful and fun party they were throwing and sharing it with friends and family. They couldn’t wait for the toasts by family, and being able to look out over the scenery on the coast. Ali knew exactly the vibe she wanted to create during the reception set by great lighting and tent decor so she coordinated the decor, table settings, tent set up and layout herself.

The couple chose to do a complete unique ceremony. “Immediately following a traditional ceremony, we will walk out the opposite direction of everyone else and read private vows to each other in one of the small nooks on the patch to Willard Beach.”

What a wonderful way to connect during what can otherwise be a busy and overwhelming part of the day.

Food is what they used to tie Maine and Maryland together. The Maine food station with a traditional lobster bake and one for Maryland with crabs. Of course a dessert bar brings it all together with mini pies and Maine whoopie pies.

The couple worked closely with Spring Smith Studios to plan the photography for the wedding. She was an easy choice since she’d grown up in the same town as Cory and was a great friend of his family. Photography was a big part of their day.  Since they live in Baltimore, Spring and Ali did most of their communicating from afar. “She made us feel so comfortable that among the many things we had to worry about leading up to the wedding, photography was never one of them. What we wanted for our wedding day was a photographer who could think outside the box to give us memorable and unique shots that you didn’t see every day – we got all of that and so much more! She really listened to what we had in mind and what we envisioned and through her amazing talent, was able to translate it all into beautiful shots that we will have with us for the rest of our lives. She was the perfect photographer for us, with every important moment captured and we feel so lucky to have had her be such a large part of our big day.”
