Lea & Tom: Maine Weddings

This past weekend I enjoyed photographing the wedding of Lea & Tom at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester. 

With guests arriving from all four corners of the US (Maine, Florida, Alaska and Hawaii) to share in this wedding day with them, I knew Lea & Tom meant a lot to many people, so I love this shot from their last dance, with their dear friends gathered around them to end the evening!



Lots soon!

Amy & Jordan: Maine Wedding Photographer

My run of June weddings ended on a fabulous note with the wedding of Amy & Jordan.   College sweethearts who met at a party in Boston that Jordan was hosting, they returned to the Greater Portland area where Amy is from to have their wedding.

It was such a wonderful day, with a first look on the Eastern Prom, followed by a ceremony and reception at Portland's Eastland Park Hotel.

I started the morning with the ladies at a local salon~ where Amy & her lovely ladies were chatting and sharing photos.




Amy had LOTS of hair ~ her "updo" was stunning







Touches of make-up

A great smile (you'll see lots more of those)



The ladies supervising


Wow!

The gown


No fabulous dress would be complete without a fabulous pair of heels


Off to visit Jordan and the boys for a few






Back with the ladies and mom's as they help amy in her gown







The morning of the wedding Amy told me she just couldn't wait to see Jordan, he is her best friend after all, and she wanted to be with him, so the couple chose to do a first look, which I always love








A few formal favorites

Josh with ECF Entertainment was fabulous with keeping the party going

The DJ and Eastland provided uplighting and strobes to give the room and dance floor some neat lighting effects.  The guests a night of boogying!
































Amy & Jordan~ thank you so much for letting me share in your day~ it was wonderful to be a part of such a great day!  My best to you both!
