sneak peek: Bridget + Ryan

Bridget and Ryan tied the knot overlooking Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine in mid-August. Though it threatened to rain for most of the day, the stormy weather held off until nightfall and the couple, their family, and friends were able to enjoy a gorgeous outdoor ceremony followed by a tented reception.

Groom and groomsmen’s personalities shining through.

Rose and gold details, accented by natural greenery, were showcased throughout.

Congratulations Bridget and Ryan!

More to come!

maine wedding venue week

It’s no secret that we love, love, love the state of Maine. Two of us have been lucky enough to call this place home from the start, and Meli has quickly adapted to the Maine lifestyle and now considers herself a Mainer. One of the reasons Maine is such a great place to get married is the venue options are endless – lakeside venues, coastal venues, private estates, summer camps, B&Bs, museums, barns, and farms! Throughout the past few years we have had the chance to travel to venues that fall in just about every one of these categories and we think we are so lucky to get to explore new venues each wedding season. Over the next week we’re going to take you through some of these categories and showcase real life venues and weddings to help you narrow down your venue options.

tommy and peter, destination wedding from new york

Words cannot describe the amazing in the air, the day Tommy and Peter got married in Portland, Maine.

Tommy, born in Atlanta, and Peter, a native New Yorker, wanted to encompass all their styles and tastes. Designer and talent, Judy Bourgeois, owner of Flora Fauna created a concept to do just that.

More than two-hundred guests kicked off the festivities Friday evening at Bayside Bowl for the rehearsal party and did not end until the Sunday Cure-Your-Hangover Brunch, concluding at The Press Hotel.

The main event of course- was the ceremony and reception held at 58 Fore. Tommy and Peter celebrated, danced and laughed the night away with their family and closest friends- not to mention a surprised choreographed flash mob- say what?!

love. intensity. originality. family. commitment. fun. honest. magnetic. connection. #tommyandpeter
