As you might imagine, I’ve been to a few weddings. One or two, you know? And I’m always really struck by those couples who have so clearly created a real deep down community for themselves…often there is family involved, but there are also friends. Not just friends, but Friends. With a capital “F.” The kind who offer unwavering support. The kind who show up. Every single time. Even when it means moving your stuff…again. Even when it’s not convenient. Even when you are getting married halfway across the country from where they live.
Every. single. time.
Carrie and Katy spent their wedding day surrounded by just that kind of community. To look at the crowd of people around them and see face after face turned toward them filled with love and utter joy…and as is only proper given the percentage of them who happen to also be brilliant university professors, some seriously witty banter!
There was laughter. There was dancing. There was LOVE. And, to cap it all off, there was brunch.
Sounds like a pretty awesome party to me. So without further ado…Carrie & Katy’s Bar Harbor Inn wedding!!
Despite the clouds rolling in and threatening, the rain held off…I love a little misty ceremony!
Katy’s nephew, the ring bearer, couldn’t contain his excitement and just wanted to run to her! The rings, however, had been attached to the pillow (had being the operative word!)…a few minutes of searching in the grass made for a quick ring recovery and an awesome wedding day story!
Plenty of tears and laughs…and the Margaret Todd as the backdrop!
Carrie tied all of the “monkey fist” knots that decorated their wedding herself!
Seriously. Hilarious. I will never ever hear “Total Eclipse of the Heart” again without thinking of this dance number!
The Mount Holyoke crew…
Such a great day!!! Thank you so much, Carrie & Katy!! You guys are awesome!
