Some of my favorite moments from Amber and Brad’s Portland Maine wedding last weekend were: Huck the groomsmen on the dance floor, opening champagne in the limo, when Amber got her dress on, the sunset at Ocean Gateway, and when Amber’s mom bought all the girls a shot. It was the perfect mix of social and dancing. The reception was at the Ocean Gateway and the DJ Greg from Northeast was the amazing…their uplighting looked great. The florals were done by Fleur De Lis, the catering was CVC catering, and the cake was from European Bakery.
How did you two meet? Brad and I first met in middle school, although we did not first become friends until much later when we went to senior prom together. After the prom we parted ways until our freshmen year of college at the University of Maine when we made it official. We have been together since then, seven years later!
How did he propose? Brad proposed during a vacation in Washington, DC. We spent the afternoon touring the city and after visiting the Jefferson Memorial we walked around the water to view the Cherry Blossoms. Brad suggested we have a seat and enjoy the view and that’s when he asked!
What is your favorite part of wedding planning? My favorite part of the wedding planning has been sharing stories and ideas with friends and family, and on PInterest, which has been an excellent resource! Sharing the whole wedding process, both the planning and the day, with Brad and with the other important people in our lives has been unbelievably fun!
What is the most important to you about your wedding? The most important thing about the wedding is that everyone has fun – us included! Summers in Maine are beautiful, our favorite time of year. We look forward to good food and drinks with good friends and family, and hopefully we can get some good weather!
What is your favorite thing about your fiancée? My favorite thing about Brad is his fun loving spirit and willingness to always try new things. When I asked Brad his favorite thing about me, he also said, “Your fun loving personality!” No better way to spend a life than with someone you can experience new things with and have fun doing it! We are lucky to both share similar characteristics and values, it sure has made wedding planning nice and easy!
