Patty + Chris' wedding at Josias River Farm in York, Maine
Patty and Chris' wedding this past weekend in York was absolutely gorgeous. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day, and the farm was gorgeous with flowers blooming everywhere. After getting ready in Ogunquit they made their way to the farm in trolleys and had their ceremony in the barn. Bread & Butter Catering served up some great snacks and drinks during cocktail hour in the yard, and then guests moved to the tent for dinner. Chris' best man gave a speech that had everyone laughing, and was sure to explain to the Americans there (Chris is from Newcastle, England) a whole glossary of terms he'd be using in his speech that may mean different things in American English. After dinner they cut a great looking cake, and danced in the barn.
I love this story from Patty about how they got engaged, "In July 2015 we planned a two week trip to San Sebastian, Spain and throughout the Bordeaux Region of France. Our last few nights in France were in Arcachon, a south western seaside town said to be the first place to harvest oysters. On July 14, Bastille Day, Chris hired a boat for the day to take us out in Arcachon Bay. 'Pinasses' are long and narrow wooden boats, traditional to the Bay. The Captain took us on a tour of the bay, stopped off at the beach, and docked for some amazingly fresh oysters and rosé across the bay in the small village of Cape Ferret. At the end of the day of luxury on our privately chartered boat, Chris asked me to marry him - and El Capitain popped the champagne!! It was surreal!"
Congrats to you both!
