Kingsley Pines Summer Camp Wedding || Raymond Maine Wedding Photographer

What a wonderful wedding weekend this past weekend was.  Even though it was chilly at the summer camp–everyone bundled up in under-armor and flannel and laughed, ate, and chatted around the campfire.  The ceremony itself was beautiful with their friends and family on all sides of them and Liz’s Dad and brother leading the sermon it was a personalized and beautiful wedding.  Everything matched Liz and Dave’s personality so well and everyone came to the camp because Liz and Dave have been such a part of their lives.  One of my favorite moments was when Liz was telling her father in law about her grandfathers dancing shoes….and he was next to her smiling.  There were people from all over the globe, all walks of life, and everyone brought their personality and best dance moves that evening.  I loved the part in the ceremony when her brother read what they wrote about each other and their years together–it was so neat to hear because essentially they both said the other knew them better than they know themselves….thats pretty awesome!  It was a weekend full of memories.  Thank you so much Liz and Dave for allowing me to capture this Maine summer camp wedding….it was a pleasure.

How did you two meet?  ”We worked together” (they are both architects)

How did he propose? “Dave proposed in Maine, in the middle of my favorite field, atop of my favorite boulder” (they are always outside working in their gardens, or hiking)

What is your favorite part of wedding planning? We are both designers, so we love designing everything from the save the dates to the flow of the event! (everyone had a custom T-shirt with the wedding logo on it–as well as the lawn games.  It was awesome!)

What is the most important to you about your wedding? “We want everyone to know how special they are to us. In every decision we make we ask ourselves if it is going to achieve that goal, and if not, maybe it’s not all that important.”

What is your favorite thing about your fiancée?  ”Dave’s sense of humor – I laugh every day, multiple times. That is all I could have ever asked for. –Liz  How thoughtful she is, Liz knows what I need more than I do. – Dave”

Rebecca and Ben had a wonderful day last Saturday for their wedding.  The weather was warm during the day and the skies stayed clear.  My favorite part of the day was seeing Rebecca in her dress–she looked amazing!  Watching the kids especially the flower girls and ring bearers was another highlight….they danced the night away.  Rebecca and Ben met through a mutual friend one weekend in Maine….and it was love at the first conversation.  They continued their relationship long distance through law school and finally now they are married!  Two people couldn’t love each other more. Blue Elephant catering did an awesome job with the food, and sheer bliss did the hair and makeup.

The Inn on Peaks Island || Peaks Island Maine Wedding Photographer

This past Friday in gorgeous warm Maine weather I took the ferry out to Peaks for a wonderful wedding celebration.  One of my favorite parts of the day was watching Corinne beam with her gorgeous smile at the ceremony.  It was wonderful to see these two become husband and wife.  They are perfect for each other and it shows in their expressions.

How did you two meet?  We met while working together with kids with special needs at Spurwink. We both worked in the residential program; Bryan worked with the big kids and I worked with the little kids. We would study neurology together at the kitchen table after the kids were asleep. Haha. I think we started dating when we realized we were a good nerdy match:)Our first date was snowboarding at Sunday River.

Corinne & Brian’s Story:

How did he propose? On top of Mount Katahdin. We hiked to the top through a thunderstorm… It almost didn’t happen!

What is your favorite part of wedding planning? Cake tasting… Is that legitimate? Haha. Getting our families involved. Bryan’s dad had the entire rehearsal dinner planned before I even started planning the wedding. I just love all the excitement that comes with planning:)

What is the most important to you about your wedding? Bringing everyone together. We have been out of state for a few years and it will be so nice to have everyone we love in one room.

What is your favorite thing about your fiancée?  Bryan is just such a good man and whenever I think about marrying him I just tear up! I love how hard he makes me laugh and how good he is to those around him. Corinne’s laugh..I was drawn to it before I had even officially met her. Not only that but her smile and her ability to appreciate a good brew…oh and of course, her dance moves.
