I first met Maria when I was a vendor at the Maine Bridal Show back in January, and I was beyond thrilled when she called to set up a meeting to discuss photographing her and Joe's wedding.
Maria is just one of those girls, that everyone wants a friend, and Joe, though a little on the quiet side, is the type of guy that you know would do anything for a friend in need.
I started the afternoon with the ladies to get some detail shots and spend some time with Maria while she got ready
Maria was all smiles
I snuck off a bit early to Spring Meadows, so I could catch up with Joe~ he was so excited
The ceremony began
A gorgeous late afternoon ceremony
After the ceremony we took some time for the formals
Time for the reception
The toasts were fabulous
And even a special guest appeared
After dinner the couple had their first dance
And then Maria was led across the floor by her dad
And Joe cut a rug with his mom
Then the dance floor rocked out
A break in the dancing, so the cake (cupcakes) could be cut
Everyone was having a great time
There was some tough competition for the bouquet
Likewise for the gater
A final dance of the evening
Maria & Joe~ I adore you both~ thank you ever so much for letting me share in your day!! Love and happiness to you always!!
