Suzanne + Dan // Sebasco Harbor Resort Wedding

A sunny midsummer day, one of Maine’s premier coastal wedding venues, and a couple that was eager to celebrate their happiest of days – Suzanne and Dan’s wedding was perfect in every way. The medical residents chose to marry at Sebasco Harbor Resort in Phippsburg. Having lived in Brunswick, my wife and I had driven by this venue many times on our way to Maine’s best kept secret, Popham Beach. This was my first time shooting here, and I was more than impressed with the property itself and friendly staff. Not only do they have a beautiful golf course, but the rocky coastline is an ideal backdrop for ceremonies and couples portraits. The nautical themed wedding was highlighted by a wonderful ceremony, a few kind hearted speeches from the wedding party, and a rockin’ party. From beginning to end, the day was all smiles for these two. Congratulations Suzanne and Dan – warmest wishes on your journey together!

Libby + Ari // A Tupper Manor Wedding // Beverly, MA

I originally met Libby and Ari during their fall Boston engagement session. We walked around their neighborhood and through the Esplanade by the Charles River, grabbing portraits along the way. They were very sweet and I could tell from this first meeting that I would love shooting their Tupper Manor Wedding. Fast-forward to September 2016 and the big day has arrived. A peach theme is carried throughout the venue – from floral arrangements to the cake to the actual peaches on the tables, it was a beautiful site. The couple chose to do a first look in order to spend more time with guests during the cocktail hour. The expression on Ari’s face as he sees Libby for the first time speaks volumes about their love. This connection carried throughout the day, during the beautiful outdoor ceremony, the emotional speeches and our sunset stroll on the beach. The reception was the definition of fun. When you book one of Boston’s best bands, Clockwork, you are guaranteed to dance you’re a$$ off. And dance they did – on chairs (hora), with grandparents, with friends, and with each other. A beautiful wedding indeed. Best wishes Libby and Ari!

A word from the bride: Ari’s from San Francisco and I’m a native New Englander, but we met while studying at Oxford in 2009. We were tempted to have a destination wedding in England, but settled for serving Pimm’s cocktails here in Massachusetts instead.

Hallie + Matt // Grace Restaurant Wedding // Portland, Maine

When I met Hallie and Matt, I could tell they were going to be a fun couple to work with. Not only were they gorgeous subjects, but they were kind hearted and easy going. Our first shoot together was actually a fall engagement session where we strolled through the Old Port and West End of Portland, grabbing a few casual portraits along the way. Similar to this session, their wedding day weather was ideal for shooting outside. I first met Hallie at The Regency, while my associate Ben worked with the guys at a home nearby. We had beautiful light filtering through the windows at the newly renovated hotel and took full advantage with a few bridal portraits of Hallie. How ‘bout that wedding dress?!

When it was time for the ceremony, everyone headed over to the beautifully renovated former church, Grace Restaurant. By having their ceremony later in the day, we were able to take full advantage of the golden hour of sunlight both on the water and at a local park. Down at the dock in Falmouth we ran into a friend of mine, who offered to take us out on a boat for portraits on the water. This kind gesture rewarded us with some great images and an opportunity for Hallie and Matt to reflect on their amazing day. A quick stop at Maine Audubon Park for a bit more variety in their images and then it was back to Grace for a phenomenal reception. The spacious venue was dramatically lit for the reception. Guests were treated to some of the best food in all of Portland. As a wedding vendor, I’ve eaten many tasty meals throughout the years but the ribeye at Grace is definitely one of the best. I highly recommend visiting. Following dinner, a few kind words and laughs were shared during the speeches and then it was time for some fun as guests danced the night away with the happy couple. Congrats to Hallie and Matt! I’m truly blessed to work with the sweetest couples!
