Lauren & Matt ~ Portland Maine Wedding Photographer

In August I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Lauren & Matt in Portland.   I really enjoyed getting to know these two and sharing in their day~ it was an absolute perfect Maine wedding day!

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!
