Elizabeth + Elliott's wedding at the Waterford World's Fair in Waterford, Maine

Elizabeth and Elliott met at Yale Divinity school. Their ceremony was especially moving; they had their teachers, Maria LaSala and Bill Goettler, officiate. Afterward guests walked right up the road to the Waterford World’s Fair - “Maine’s most improved small fair” where guests enjoyed the fairgrounds before gathering in the dance hall for dinner and dancing.

From Karen + Alex: 
Karen and Alex’s story began in New York City in the fall of 2013, one October morning on Sullivan Street (the street both Karen and Alex lived on). Karen was making her morning commute down Sullivan when she passed Alex, who was dropping his clothes off at the neighborhood laundromat. They said a quick hello and smiled. Alex immediately caught Karen's eye. When she got home from work that day, she mentioned the encounter to her roommate and planted the seed with a mutual friend who was kind enough to pass along the memo to Alex: "Karen is interested. She thinks you're funny, cute, and the good kind of weird.”

A few weeks later, Karen and Alex found themselves at the Copper Door Halloween party. Picture Alex with a mustache, a cheesy plaid vest and khakis - his best attempt at “Cliff Paul” from the State Farm insurance commercials - and Karen, with McDonald’s French fries attached to each hip, dressed as "Hot French Fries," (a shameless play on her last name). Three back to back costume-clad dates later, Alex and Karen were smitten.

Just two and a half months after that initial Halloween party, Karen was offered a new job in San Francisco and the two of them had a very tough decision to make. After many sleepless nights and soul searching conversations with good friends, they reached their decision together – Karen was going to take the job and move to California, a place Alex had never even visited. They were going to make it work. A few weeks passed, she moved, he visited, and five months later, Alex purchased his first ever one-way plane ticket.

In April of 2016, Alex and Karen went "glamping" in Big Sur, where Alex popped the question on a very long, very sweaty hike.

Ashlee + Jay's wedding at Vesper Hill Children's Chapel and Pig + Poet in Camden, Maine

///

Ashlee and Jay's wedding was nothing short of special. The clouds kept threatening rain and as the ceremony began a light sprinkle started, but right when they exchanged rings - the sun came out. I see all sorts of beauty and love at weddings, but this was a really special moment. Jay told me later the sky brightened when he proposed too! So happy to share a little city with these two, and to continue to cross paths in Portland. Thank you Jay + Ashlee for trusting me and sharing your love!

From Ashlee + Jay:
Ashlee is a pediatric speech and language pathologist and Jay is currently developing food for Maine’s iconic brand, Stonewall Kitchen. They live on Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine where they enjoy building their home and life together. They met at The Tiki Shake Off, a cocktail competition for USBG at Maine Craft Distilling. Later that evening they found themselves at a popular gathering spot, Eventide Oyster for what would be the first of countless shared dishes and late night walks. On a foggy winter morning in Paris, Jay proposed to Ashlee in a rose garden as the rest of the city still slept.

Mindy + Bo's wedding at the MIT Chapel and Hotel Commonwealth in Boston, MA

///

From Mindy + Bo: Mindy is born and raised in California; Bo grew up in Maine.  Bo eventually moved to the other coast and modern technology connected him to Mindy were they both now live in San Francisco.

Mindy and Bo seem to be polar opposites from each other, however, when you really get to know them, Mindy and Bo couldn’t be more similar. Strangely enough, they both are known to their friends as the one always late to the point that Bo’s friends coined the term “B.S.T.” for Bo Standard Time.

Mindy and Bo’s relationship blossomed during their many dates all over the Bay Area but it wasn’t until their travels back to the East Coast that solidified their relationship. This reason also explains why they chose Boston, Massachusetts as their wedding destination.
