Many couples ask me about possible locations for waterfront weddings here in Maine. Of course, many people choosing to get married in Maine want a waterfront wedding because we have it all: lakes, ponds, rivers, and beaches. There's something special about waterfront weddings; an expanse and openness to the setting. And who wouldn't love the crashing surf as a backdrop for their wedding ceremony?! So, if you're looking for a waterfront venue for your wedding, this post is for you.Read More
Are you getting married somewhere between Freeport and Camden? If so, you're going to need lodging options for your out-of-town guests, maybe even for you, if you're having a destination Maine wedding. While hotels are easy to come by in Portland, they're harder to find along the coastline and in the smaller coastal towns.Read More

Nights in Maine, even in the middle of summer, can be chilly. Evenings on the coast are especially cool. If you’re getting married in Maine, you could throw a sweater or light jacket over your wedding outfit, but I have a better, more fashionable option for you: a Swans Island Company wrap! You’ll stay warm while still looking fabulous, and your choice of covering will represent your Maine wedding experience.Read More
Oh my god, you guys, we got a new cat! As many of you know from previous posts about me, I'm a bonafide crazy cat lady. I love everything cat and have cat bags, cat socks, cat mugs, cat tea towels, cat picture frames, cat magnets...you get the idea. My cats even have their own Instagram account! So, it's with absolute delight that I introduce you to our newest furry kitty, Sammy!
We rescued Sammy from Another Chance Animal Rescue in North Berwick, Maine. He had been in the shelter system for over a month and was patiently waiting to get picked. My friend, Bree (another wicked cat lady) shared photos of Sammy on Facebook and I instantly fell in love! In fact, my husband and I were planning to get a kitten in the spring, but when I saw Sammy and felt this deep connection we knew we had to meet him. He joins big brother Felix and sister Bean to round out our trio of kitties!
So, without further ado, here is our new ginger kitty, Sammy the Cat!
Leave a comment and tell me just how handsome you think Sammy is! :)
Choosing Maria of A Sweet Start to officiate our wedding day ceremony was hands down the best decision we made during our wedding planning process! My husband and I are not very religious and knew we wanted to get married outside, but that was about all we were sure of. After meeting Maria on Skype, we knew we could fully trust her to help us create the ceremony of our dreams. Maria custom tailored a ceremony for us that was unique and meaningful and she embraced our idea of a beer ceremony and turned it into reality! My husband and I are in our mid 20's so we thought most of our guests would be talking about "the party" the next day, but everyone could not stop raving about our ceremony! I had multiple people tell me it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever attended. I cannot recommend Maria enough!
