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!
