Traditional american wedding for jessica darshan

August 15th & 16th, 2014 Epping & Dover, NH Jessica and Darshan’s two-day wedding celebration blended American and Sikh wedding traditions.

To honor both families, they had two wedding ceremonies: a traditional Sikh ceremony at Darshan’s family home on Friday, and a second ceremony on Saturday at the Rivermill at Dover Landing in Dover. Family from all over the world, including England, Canada, California, and Maine, attended the…

September 27th, 2014 Camden, ME Laura and Chris wanted a waterfront wedding celebration evoking a festive, black and gold-themed cocktail party for themselves, their friends, and family, many of whom – on Chris’s side – were traveling from the Netherlands. Laura’s family has lived in and around Camden, ME, for five generations so the Camden Yacht Club, where Laura learned to sail as a girl, was a logical choice for their ceremony and reception. An added celebratory touch: the Camden International Film Festival coincided with the wedding weekend, drawing hundreds of visitors, in addition to the couple’s wedding guests, to…

July 19th, 2014 Freeport, ME Julia met Drew at the University of Rhode Island. Self-described “outdoors people,” they knew once they were engaged that they would have an outdoor wedding. Their venue, Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport, ME, has a wedding field with stunning water views as well as one of Maine’s oldest post and beam barns. A campground adjacent to the farm, Recompence Shore Campground, offers oceanfront cabins that the couple as well as their wedding party stayed in the night prior to the wedding. Quilts, vintage fabrics, bunting, whimsical signage and more, all created by Julia’s mother, gave…

July 27th, 2013 Gloucester, MA When Pauline and Jeff met, it was “love at first sight,” says Pauline. Together for five years, they share a love for the beach (they live in Encinitas, CA, where they visit the beach almost daily) and a sense of humor. Jeff proposed to Pauline by decorating a locally famous surf statue called the “Cardiff Kook,” dressing it in a tuxedo shirt and pink bow tie, along with fake diamond ring on a pillow and a sign reading “Pauline V. Marry Me.” His stunt got the couple on the local television news. Humor was evident…

August 8th, 2014 Peaks Island, ME Jennifer and Tyler share a love of family and the ocean, not surprising since they grew up in Plymouth, on Massachusetts’ south shore. Family inspired them to plan a destination wedding on Peaks Island, in Casco Bay, a short ferry ride from Portland, ME, near where Tyler’s mom grew up. “We thought it’d be a bit of a mini-adventure,” says Jennifer. It certainly was the day they first visited their venue, the Inn on Peaks Island. “It was cold, raining and there was no power on the entire island,” Jennifer says. Tyler, however, was…

June 22nd, 2014 Newmarket, NH Cindy and Gino met first as co-workers, then became a couple over shared glasses of wine. After becoming engaged, on Cindy’s birthday, they decided to have their ceremony at their home in Seacoast New Hampshire. Their property, originally part of a dairy farm, includes a beautiful stone barn. “Melanie, our wedding planner and officiant, suggested we should be outside and use our barn, which really put me at ease about doing it at our house,” says Cindy. Initially, upgrading a building used to store machinery and garden equipment, not to mention cleaning up landscaping, seemed…

November 2nd, 2013 Exeter, NH Introduced by a mutual friend while attending the University of New Hampshire, Laura and Greg Halsey started their relationship as friends. Laura gradually realized Greg might be “the one” and, one day, “it just kind of hit me,” she says. The couple’s laid-back attitude carried over to the warm fall day when they exchanged their vows. Although nervous before the ceremony, Laura relaxed when she realized “It’s easy to marry the person you really love.” During the reception, Laura and Joe, Greg’s young cousin, performed her signature dance move – the worm – to the…
