Amanda Boggs + Andrew Ralph

September 21, 2019 Ogunquit, Maine The beauty of art and the picturesque town of Ogunquit were two special ingredients Amanda knew she wanted to incorporate into her wedding day. Her love of art led her to get a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in printmaking, and she and Andrew chose Ogunquit as their very first vacation spot more than six years ago—and they’ve continued vacationing there every year since. The result of combining these two things? A lovely waterfront ceremony and reception at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, which Amanda said had just started allowing weddings shortly before they booked…

Cailin Fitzpatrick + Tony Shipani

September 28, 2019 Rowley, Massachusetts Tony Shipani planned to surprise Cailin Fitzpatrick while on vacation: He envisioned proposing to her with an engagement ring that he had designed. Things took a turn when the ring got lost in the mail. On a balmy summer day, Tony resorted to his back-up plan: bringing Cailin (and their dog Benny) to their favorite park. “I turned back twice because it was so hot,” says Cailin. “I wanted nothing to do with it.” Tony caught Cailin off guard when he sank to his knee and asked her to marry him. Cailin remembers the moment…

Best of Seacoast Weddings: Brianna Goncalves + Eric Lacroix

June 22, 2019 Rye, New Hampshire Brianna and Eric met in their freshman year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Although she had “zero interest” in Eric at first, she finally agreed to a date—and within a month knew for sure he was “the one.” Knowing she was a huge planner, Eric proposed on a trip to the Bahamas in December 2017 with a June 2019 wedding in mind and immediately asked his bride-to-be: “Is a year and a half enough time to plan?” It was, but she started immediately. The couple admits that around six months prior to their date, they…

Caroline Shaw + Rich Overleese

August 31, 2019 Wells, Maine Yes, people really do find their soulmates through online dating, as Caroline can attest to. “I had been living in Orlando six months and decided to give online a try,” she explained. “Rich was my second date—I was lucky to find the real thing right away!” When the time came to get married, there was no hesitation about where the wedding would be held. It had to be in Wells, near the Shaw family’s seasonal home on Drakes Island, where Caroline has vacationed her whole life. Their wedding, held over Labor Day weekend, was mostly…

Monica Bellevue + Daniel Markham

June 30, 2018 North Hampton, New Hampshire Monica jokes that she met Dan “the old-fashioned way”—mingling at a Boston bar. The couple had been together for five years when Dan surprised Monica with a trip to Scotland for Thanksgiving. Another surprise awaited Monica after their arrival. With Edinburgh Castle behind him, Dan proposed. “He must’ve hidden the ring in his luggage,” Monica says. Monica was eager to marry on the New Hampshire Seacoast, where she grew up. The couple exchanged vows on a hot summer day in the picturesque Union Chapel on Little Boar’s Head, overlooking the ocean. Afterwards, the…

Lauren Bailey + Michael Pratt

July 29, 2017 North Hampton, NH Family and tradition were interwoven throughout Lauren and Michael’s festive summer wedding. The couple met their freshman year at St. Joseph’s College in Maine, the same school where Lauren’s parents had met years before.

September 4, 2017 Rye and Portsmouth, New Hampshire An international romance culminating in a stateside wedding can be challenging at best — even more so when one of the couple is Iranian, as bride Maryam Nik Khahi discovered while planning her wedding day with her groom, American citizen Nelson Lourenco. Some challenges were easily solved, others not so much, but in the end the two celebrated their love. The day started with two ceremonies. “I wanted a ceremony under the open sky and in front of the sea,” says Maryam. “Since my husband is Catholic, we also wanted to honor…
