Alli and Morgan’s wedding felt like one you would see in a movie.  Every detail, so carefully thought out by Paula Cano of A Family Affair of Maine, blew me away.  From the lush white florals, by Seasons Downeast Designs, to the dramatic lighting, by The Event Light Pros, and the rest of the work put forth by the incredible team of vendors that helped make this event happen (listed at the end of this blog post- too many to discuss here!) made the wedding one I’ll never forget.  But, the heartbeat of this wedding was Alli and Morgan and the significant connection they have shared ever since high school. The way the two of them would light up when the other was near really made me feel their passion they share for each other, and those small, beautiful moments really made me glad to be their wedding photographer.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Alli and Morgan’s wedding day- enjoy!

I met Betsy and Mark at Kelsie and Rob’s Sugarloaf wedding two years ago- not only was Betsy Rob’s sister, but she and Mark were both in the wedding party.  I was thrilled when she contacted me about her Sebasco Harbor Resort wedding, because I knew reuniting with their incredibly sweet families would be the perfect way to kickstart the wedding season.  We were blessed with a lot of sun, a beautiful sunset, Wavelength (who knows how to bring the party), and, in one of my favorite parts of the day, getting to watch Betsy and Mark goof around while cutting their cake with a sword.  So much fun!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Betsy and Mark’s wedding day.  Can’t wait to share the rest of your photos with you!
