I’m pretty sure that is was mentioned more than once throughout the day, but here it is for the rest of the world….beyond the obvious love Jen and Chris have for each other is finding the fun and joy in everything they do together and as a family. With a ton of amazing help from Chris’ mom, Jen and Chris had the sweetest wedding on a tiny beach on  Bailey’s Island and then celebrated with family, friends and some seriously amazing food in the lovely Bailey Island Library Hall.  The entire day was just beautiful and filled with endless meaningful details.

Connie and Erin’s wedding day was absolutely amazing!  From the perfect weather to gorgeous flowers, incredible food and a fantastic dessert table, a beautiful ceremony and an amazing coordinator, I’m not sure there was much that could’ve made the day any better. One of my favorite things about the day was that it was evident that Connie and Erin made the day entirely about themselves and their love for one another and made it a point to take some quiet moments for just the two of them before things really got underway. While Sarah and I were busy gathering detail shots, Connie and Erin peacefully walked around the country club reminding each other that this was their day and they were just going to relish every second of the day. They also opted for a first look where they read personal vows and then left us a ton of time for bridal portraits and formals….which was a great thing considering how big their bridal party was!!

Connie and Erin, it was such an honor to capture your day for you. Sarah and I had the best time and we wish you nothing but a lifetime of the happiest memory making <3

Last weekend, I drove to a gorgeous home I had never been to before and found Kayla…a gorgeous bride I had never met before (a first for me!). And while I was walking into a day of unknowns, I could not have been more at ease. Kayla and her entire family and all of her bridesmaids were just amazing. With a threat of rain throughout the day and a few moments of the skies opening up, there were a few worried moments that were handled with grace and taken right in stride…leading to one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve gotten to photograph so far. Kayla and Brian planned the perfect day with just the right amount of detail and personal touches, and put on an epic party to mark the first moments of their new adventure <3 BroderickWedding 115 1024x1011 Kayla + Brian = happily ever after | Newry, Maine wedding photography

I’m beyond excited to share this little peek from Alyssa and Derrick’s wedding, and it was definitely no small feat to narrow the images down for this post! Alyssa and Derrick have got to be one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with. Their love for each other is evident in every little interaction and they are super laid back and fun. Which only means that their day was bound to be fun too. And sweet.

From Derrick tearing up watching Alyssa walk down the aisle to Derrick’s stepmom offering a tissue to his mom during the ceremony, and Alyssa’s dad literally sweeping her off her feet during their dance and then following up with their father-daughter fun choreographed number, I fought back my own tears. And as I watched the most intense bouquet toss and Derrick overcome his fear of garter removal with some killer dance moves; laughing tears. But perhaps the sweetest and funniest moment was witnessing Memere digging in her purse for cash so she could relentlessly cut in during the dollar dance.

Alyssa and Derrick, it has been such an honor to get to know the both of you and to photograph one of the biggest days of your life. I hope you enjoy these and here’s to many many more years of ridiculous happiness <3

It has taken me way longer than usual to get this blog peek up, and I’d like to blame it on my crazy schedule…but that’s only part of it. Truth is, narrowing down my blog choices was waaaaay harder than I had planned! There were too many amazing moments from Audrey and Bryant’s big day that I wanted to share.

I first met Bryant and Audrey just before Bryant left for deployment and they scheduled a pre-deployment session.  We emailed a little during the deployment and through my Facebook feed, I was so proud of how Audrey handled being away from the love of her life. So, when she asked me to photograph their wedding, there was no doubt in my mind that this was a true honor. Of course, I was a bit nervous at the thought of photographing such a huge bridal party compared to the rest of this year’s weddings, but it was clearly evident that these two are surrounded by the most sincere, fun and loving group of family and friends.

In a cozy little room in her grandfather’s great big house, Heather stated simply…Josh is the best person I know.  It was a simple sentence, but a powerful one. In this one small thought, Heather made it clear that Josh was her perfect match and there is no other place in the world that she belongs than in his arms and by his side. Josh and Heather traveled from their home in Georgia to get married with just their closest friends and relatives to celebrate. The wedding was peaceful, simple, coastal and beautiful as they exchanged their vows and danced the night away with the people who mean the most to them. elliott 17 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 31 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 26 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 49 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 81 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 150 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 77 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 99 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 123 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 126 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 145 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 11 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 159 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 190 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 234 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 171 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 269 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 198 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 251 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 137 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after elliott 278 {Brunswick, Maine wedding photographer} Josh + Heather <3 happily ever after Heather and Josh, it was an honor to be able to capture your day for you, and I wish you both all the happiness in the world <3

If you have been following my work for even a little bit of time, you already know how much I adore Amanda and her boys…and well, the rest of her kind, generous, fun and loud family! After meeting Stefen at their engagement session and seeing him interact with her boys and watching him just simply love his fiance, there was no doubt that this is right where these two hearts belong. The original plan for this wedding involved an elopement, but with a family as big and generous as Amanda’s (not to mention some pretty awesome friends), the day was quickly turned into an intimate beach wedding with immediate family,  lunch by the beach complete with entertainment for the little ones and finally followed by a party with their closest friends. All of which the only decisions Amanda truly had any say in was her choice of outfit for the day. That’s right, she gave full reign to family and friends and they managed to keep all the little details a surprise. While most brides would probably have a heart attack not knowing what to really expect on their wedding day, Amanda never flinched at the idea. She and Stefen had only one goal in mind…to celebrate their love. And that’s exactly what they did.   Amanda managed to plan a few special personal touches to her day. While most people think to engrave the inside of their wedding bands with some sweet quote, Amanda and Stefen had each other’s fingerprints engraved on theirs. It was super unique….and super hard to photograph! severywedding 3 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after   She also added her late brother’s dog tag and a ring he used to wear in high school to her bouquet. severywedding 5 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 11 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after   I simply adore these boys!  They are such a HUGE part of this family’s life and the center of Amanda’s world. Stefen is amazing with them and I am so excited that he is such a big part of their lives now. Cody was so sweet helping his mom into her dress and both boys jumped at the chance to help her with her shoes. severywedding 21 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 15 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after   Now that the bride was ready, it was off to the ceremony.

Amanda’s family did a fantastic job at transforming the garage into someplace cozy, pretty, warm and with plenty of room for dancing. Oh, and Nana was beyond excited to share the special butterfly cake and cupcakes she spent three days working on just for Stefen and Amanda! severywedding 132 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 116 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 130 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 138 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after severywedding 153 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after

Stefen and Amanda, I am honored to have been a part of your day. You two were meant to be together, and I could not be happier for the both of you. Congratulations again and here’s to happily ever after <3 severywedding 82 {Leeds, Maine wedding photographer} Stefen & Amanda <3 happily ever after

From the day I met up with Jeannine and Brian to shoot their engagement session, I knew that their wedding was going to be nothing short of amazing.  They took so much time in planning to include not just the people who mean the most to them in their lives right now, but to also honor those who were certainly watching this beautiful day from heaven. On the same note of sentimentality, it was easy to see that Jeannine is and always will be “daddy’s girl” and Dad totally stepped it up with an amazing cupcake display for the reception.  And by amazing, I mean he crafted this thing with his own two hands…and not just from any old scraps of wood either. Nope, he selected cuts that he had saved from Christmas trees from Christmases that he, his wife and their two children were able to gather around together. So sweet!

So pair all this sentimentality, unique touches, amazing family members and a fun wedding party and this is what happens….

Jeannine and Brian, I wish you both all the happiness in the world and then some.  Enjoy every second and every breathe of your new and amazing life together<3

There are so many moments when I look at my relationship with my three younger sisters and remember my mom screaming at us that “one day you’ll be best friends.”  Of course none of us ever believed her….and it was especially true for Karen and I since we were just 15 months apart. I can definitely remember many more moments when we were fighting than I can recall us getting along. Well, mom still isn’t ALWAYS right, but my sisters and I have definitely made it to that point in our lives when we can actually admit that we love each other and when we plan to get together with all our kiddoes, the moment isn’t really complete unless all four of us are together.

Anyway, Karen and her hubby Shawn just celebrated their 10th anniversary and she called me to tell me all about these great t-shirts she made for the two of them…and to ask if I thought they were corny:)

Now there are times that I wonder if anyone even reads my blog. Yeah sure I get comments on my Facebook page, but blog comments are often lacking….and I am pretty sure not one of my sisters has ever left me any blog love icon sad {Sandwich, New Hampshire photographer} Karen & Shawn: I still do <3  Well, actions speak louder than blog comments I guess, ’cause in the same conversation about the cute t-shirts, Karen asked if I would shoot a session for her and Shawn. There were lots of details that were not captured on her actual wedding day, not to mention the day was a bit of a blur for her due to a scary kidney stone incident early that same morning. So the plan was that I would make the two and a half hour drive to New Hampshire, she would unpack her preserved wedding dress and we would capture some of the missed moments of that day. So, ten years later. She still fits in her dress. Still looks stunning. And still has Shawn wrapped around her finger….only this time he didn’t cry when he saw her in the dress:)

Karen and Shawn, congratulations on ten beautiful years.  It has been amazing watching you build your beautiful family and I am not only honored that you asked me to capture this for you, but blessed to call you family as well.
