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.

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…

Marry Me.” His stunt got the couple on the local television news. Humor was evident…

Solutions to make your big day the best ever TIP: Not All Tents Are Created Equally When choosing a tent for your event, look beyond the bottom line. Two tents may be equal in size but not the same. “Ask your vendor for images of what they’re supplying for your event,” says John Hutchins IV, vice president of Leavitt & Parris in Portland, ME. “Get references on the quality and condition of their products and check out their facilities. The way they present themselves at their home base is a huge indication of the equipment they’ll deliver to your event…
