I arrived in the morning to the hustle and bustle of the ladies getting ready~ while Lauren and her ladies were getting their hair and make-up done I was busy snapping away at some detail shots.
With just a few minutes until it was time to put her gown on, Lauren read a card from Matt
Getting some help from her mom and sister into her dress & heels
Heather Caron Floral Design did an amazing job on all of the flowers for the day
After leaving the ladies I met up with Matt and his guys as they were putting their final getting ready details into place
Time for the ceremony
How excited are they?!
We had a little time between the ceremony and reception, so while the guests enjoyed a cruise around Casco Bay~ the bridal party and I went to Ft Williams and Portland City Hall for photos
After the formals it was time to head to Grace for the reception~
The decor & details were gorgeous
All cakes were made by Grace's own pastry chef~ they were a huge hit
The newleyweds enjoying their first dance as husband and wife
Lauren was spun around the floor by her dad
And then Matt led his lovely mom in a dance
Lauren's sister and Matt's brother gave very heartfelt and funny toasts
After dinner the dancing began~ everyone had a wonderful time!!
Lauren and Matt~ a huge THANKS for allowing me to share in your day~ it truly was my pleasure! I wish you joy and laughter in all your days!
