Jackie & Reese: Maine Wedding Photographer

I was so excited when July 14th arrived because it meant I would be shooting the wedding of Jackie & Reese, a couple I have enjoyed getting to know over the past year! 

I started the morning with the couple at the Portland Regency Hotel where they got ready and had their ceremony

A beautiful gift from Reese to Jackie

Just lovely

The couple wanted to enjoy most of their cocktail hour with their guests so they chose to do a first look, so we could get the majority of the formal photos taken before

They were so excited to see each other

A huge thank you to the couple's bridal party who were nothing but smiles despite the heat!

After a few photos of the couple it was time to head back to the Eastland for the ceremony

The vows were heartfelt

After the ceremony ~ Jackie, Reese and I walked to Grace where the reception was being held.  We enjoed stopping at a few places to take some final photos

As a surprise to their guests~ the couple arranged for the Boston based a cappella group RedLine to entertain the guests during happy hour

Having a good time during their first dance

Father of the bride, best man and man of honor gave great toasts to the happy couple

Reese was so eager to taste that great looking cake, he didn't even wait for Jackie to feed him

After the formalities the dance floor opened up and everyone was having lots of fun

The couple enjoyed a little trivia game about each other while the guests got a chance to cool down and get a fresh drink

Then it was back to the party

Jackie signing along with a tune

People were flouting (is that a word :)?!)

And fishing

Pole dancing

And really getting into the pole dancing

The night came to an end with one final dance

Jackie & Reese~ thank you so much for letting me share in your wedding day!  It truly was my pleasure!
