I have been feeling super mushy lately about the entire concept of gratitude and, more specifically, about how over-the-top insanely grateful I feel for this life I get to lead. That gratitude has been welling up in me all day as I wrap up the edits for this wedding. I mean, this is MY JOB! First I get to meet amazing people. Then I get to hang out with them throughout their incredible wedding day and see them absorb the truth of all of the love they have in their lives. THEN I get to sit in my office at home, “cuppa” coffee in hand, and review that love  over and over as I edit the images. And then I get to share it with the world. I mean, seriously- what’s not to be grateful for? It’s pretty dang awesome.

And speaking of pretty dang awesome…THIS WEDDING!

So…there’s backstory here. Rochelle and Mike live and work in Las Vegas (did you know that people actually LIVE there? Indeed they do!) and hail from opposite ends of the country. They decided on a destination wedding and began booking and planning their dream oceanside beach wedding in Cabo. Until a HURRICANE BLEW DOWN THEIR VENUE. What?!?!?! Seriously. That’s what happened. No joke.

Rochelle’s grandmother was one of the founders of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, so when they began considering new venues, it was a natural choice full of connection and family roots. To the garden’s natural beauty, they added a little Vegas sparkle and a whole lot of love and this incredible wedding was born!

Without further ado, Rochelle & Mike’s Boothbay wedding!

Mike is one of those guys who seems perfectly comfortable and perfectly natural in a tux…like he totally wears one every day.

The ceremony took place at the quaint Wilson Memorial Chapel overlooking the sea…I just love this little stone chapel!

Stretta Ensembles created the most beautiful background music for both the ceremony and cocktail hour…

When your Mexican venue blows down, there is no better way to honor it than with a tasty round of margaritas!

Ken Lund is an amazing artist who created a one-of-a-kind piece of art reflecting Rochelle & Mike’s wedding day right there at the reception…it was amazing to watch him take this canvas from sketch to finished piece over the course of the day! One of the most unique things I’ve ever seen at a wedding!

    OMG, such beautiful photos!! This is probably the most beautiful bride I have ever seen! Amazing as always. 🙂ReplyCancel

My little sister was married this summer in a tiny private ceremony in the mountains surrounding Buena Vista, Colorado. It was small and intimate and low-key…perfect for Karissa and Keith! As I was actually IN the wedding, they had another photographer shoot most of the wedding, but requested that I shoot their portraits, which was a wonderful honor. I will be sharing more of our time in Colorado over on Cindy Giovagnoli in the coming weeks (there are a few images from the trip up on the blog there already!), but I couldn’t resist posting some of these beautiful portraits here!

You guys may remember Tera & Bennett from their gorgeous engagement session last fall (and its feature in the July issue of Real Maine Weddings magazine!). Well, that was definitely a perfect appetizer for their amazing “main course”, their wedding at the spectacular Bar Harbor Club! It was a perfect day in every respect, from the ideal coastal weather to family and friends who were simply incredible in every conceivable way to the magical, palpable love between the bride and groom. Truly, Tera and Bennett’s wedding was everything we all dream about when imagining our fairy tale day. I could go on and on and on, but considering that I could NOT stop including images for this post, I’ll let you see for yourselves…Tera and Bennett’s insanely awesome wedding, y’all!

The lovely hair styling was by Kati Look and makeup by Kim Begin! And don’t you just love the flower girl dresses by J.Crew?!?!

Sparkle sparkle! Gotta love those Jimmy Choos! (Though Tera brilliantly sported some fantastic Joie wedges for the ceremony on the lawn!)

Tera’s Nicole Miller gown…a statement in perfect, simple, elegance.

I know I’ve said it a million times, but I’m such a believer in the first look…it’s so powerful to have a chance to connect before the whirlwind of the day sweeps the two of you up! So great.

Tera & Bennett make their home near the wine country of northern California and are aficionados themselves, so it made perfect sense to have a special bottle of one of their favorites as a guestbook!

Sam and Jason. Jason and Sam. He’s a Mainer whose roots in this state go deep. She’s a California girl with a heart for the west coast. But their love transcends geography and boy-oh-boy, is there some love here. And laughter. Even in just the few hours we spent together, their support for one another and their sense of “team” was absolutely transparent. We played around at Camden Hills State Park before finishing things off at the world’s sweetest little lake, surrounded by the colorful leaves of a Maine autumn and these are just a few of my favorites from our session!

Oh my goodness, this family. Where do I even begin? There is so much love happening here, I can’t even tell you. From Laura and Heath, who are so clearly and utterly smitten with one another, to their wide-eyed little girl, to their sweet, sweet dog…I just can’t get enough. Here are just a tiny few of my many many favorites from this incredible engagement-slash-family session we did in Kittery!
