Chelsea and Michael’s wedding day was nothing short of gorgeous.  The skies were blue and sunny, the weather warm, and Chelsea and Michael were so, so, so excited to finally tie the knot.  Before we headed to the ceremony, the two opted to do a first look, which resulted in the most adorable expressions of love from the two of them.  We wandered around the Old Port, finding cool backdrops and receiving lots of applause and happy exclamations from passerbys.  Their ceremony at the Wilde Memorial Chapel went without a hitch, and these two, after a few family and wedding party formals, went off to their party at the Portland Regency!  I loved the fact that at sunset we snuck up to a local rooftop , where we took wedding portraits which included the Portland skyline– such fun!  Sunset is such a great time to snag a few more formals, as the light is so pretty and the colors dramatic.

These are just a few of my very favorites from their wedding day.  Get ready for lots of grins, portraits, shoes (there were so. many. sparkly. shoes!) and adorable flower girls!  And, special thanks are in order for Sarah of Sarah Vanessa Photography, who assisted and second shot for me!  Thanks Sarah!

As I drove to Greenville, my first time back in years, I admired the very cloudy skies, which poured rain on and off as Tammie and I drove to the Blair Hill Inn.  The rain was, of course, a bit unsettling, but I crossed my fingers that those clouds would stick around for portraits, even if we did have to deal with a little bit of rain.  And, once I arrived, the rain stopped, the clouds stuck around, and we were all treated to some amazing views of Moosehead Lake.

Marilyn and Justin arrived shortly after I did in their running gear– they had decided to run a few miles before their elopement preparations (my kind of wedding day!)   Before long they were suited up and ready to go.  Marilyn’s father and his wife acted as witnesses to their ceremony, and after delicious cocktails were shared, we traveled to several other gorgeous locations in Greenville to really make the most of those stunning skies and views.  The pair even hopped into a canoe and boated around on Moosehead, which was certainly a sight to see!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our day together.  Thanks for including us, Marilyn and Justin!
