August 14th, 2015 Chamberlain, ME Hope and Matt had the quintessential Maine wedding at his family’s ocean-side cottage in Chamberlain, ME. Their ceremony was on the rocks jutting into Long Cove; their reception was at the Long Cove Point clubhouse. The day was warm, sunny, and busy – a town festival, Bristol Days, was happening the same weekend as the wedding. “We had our first look at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse,” says Hope. “There were lots of people walking around and sailboats criss-crossing the water. It was typical Maine.” The wedding was elegant, but playful. Matt and his groomsmen eschewed traditional…

August 23rd, 2014 Rye, NH No detail went unnoticed in Jessica and Anthony’s wedding, even the date. Jessica, who admits “there wasn’t a detail I wasn’t involved in,” researched weather data and selected their wedding day based on the date which historically had the best weather on the New Hampshire Seacoast. She chose well. The weather was beautiful for their ceremony and reception, held at Rye Harbor State Park, in Rye, NH. The site was a perfect fit with their “by the sea” theme. Jessica enjoyed the do-it-yourself aspect of wedding planning, creating bud vases from Perrier bottles with her…

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…

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…

An Engagement Adventure Marriage is a journey but sometimes the trip to get there is an adventure. Just ask Stefany Shaheen and Craig Welch. Stefany and Craig were on a trip to Belize when, to Stefany’s surprise, Craig proposed. Less than 12 hours later, after enjoying breakfast on the small island of Caye Caulker, the engagement ring slipped off Stefany’s finger and was lost in the sand. The couple desperately combed the beach for hours, looking for the ring; beach-goers and islanders joined the search, but it disappeared. With several days remaining on their trip, Stefany and Craig pledged to…
