Laudholm Farm Wedding Wells, Maine

Olivia and Matt had a Laudholm Farm Wedding in Wells, Maine.

Some highlights:

-Olivia’s dress–I loved that it was textured and not something I see every week

-The toasts were amazing!  This group of friends is incredible.  They have been friends for years and they really stand by each other and its a BIG group

-Hitchhiking to the bridal prep area (the cottage they rented only allowed two cars in the driveway and it was a gated community so when I couldn’t get ahold of the bride I started walking–thankfully a woman asked me if I needed a ride early on because I would have been walking with my gear a little over a mile….at least I was early!

-The people who spoke during the ceremony–as you’ll see in the photos everyone was cracking up.  When one of the groomsmen in the audience called the groomsman who was speaking–it was pretty funny

-the venue it is one of my favorite places in Maine for a wedding

-the colors!  Olivia’s vision for the Burgundy/Cranberry bridesmaid dresses against the waning summer grass and yellow farmhouse was perfect

-Matt is such a sweetheart and Olivia is perfect for him–it was so great hearing all of their stories together and learning more about what kind of people they are.

-the many tears I shed at the time when they passed out glow-sticks in remembrance of Olivia’s Dad

-the dogs!  I am obsessed with their little white bulldog pup–and the story behind the older bulldog he recently beat cancer at least for a little while and has brought so much joy and love into their lives

-when Olivia’s mom told me what she was going to say before they walked down the isle–“hold your bouquet at your bellybutton with your arm out because your Dad is there walking right beside you holding your arm from heaven” just writing that makes me cry again

-being able to capture the bond between Matt and his brother and Olivia and her sister and what a part of their lives that is….I LOVE when family is the most important thing to my clients

So blessed to be a part of this day.  Olivia you were one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen.
