camden amphitheater maine wedding

christine and michael contacted me over a year in advance of their wedding. they had already booked the camden maine amphiteather for their ceremony and had lots of the other details all worked out. i was so impressed! a lot can happen in a year and many of those details changed or morphed, but the one constant was the undeniable love that these two feel for each other. they chose to share personal vows as well as the traditional ones and i'm so glad they did. their personal vows touched me so deeply. they were honest, sweet, funny, and just so full of love i bet i wasn't the only one tearing up. all the best for a lifetime of happiness, you two!

camden maine wedding officiant

on a rainy saturday in may, a young couple changed their plans at the last minute to have a meaningful and heartfelt wedding at the whitehall inn, in camden, maine. their vision was to marry in the middle of a spiral in the middle of the camden amphitheater but cold, rainy conditions forced them indoors. they made the best of it by recreating the spiral in the sitting area of the inn, and not rain, nor wind, nor last minute changes could affect the sweetness of this wedding. it wasn't just me crying throughout the ceremony, everyone felt the honesty and love. jill and tim make the perfect couple and their wedding was nothing short of perfection itself. i love you guys!

camden maine wedding | a maine wedding officiant

on the ride back from this wedding all i could think was "i am so lucky to do what i do!" amy and kristopher are the real deal. i could actually feel their love during the ceremony. i didn't cry, but i did get goose bumps. woah! this wedding brought together two families. kristopher has two children as does amy. the kids were a big part of the ceremony and the little ones did a great job! amy and kristopher figured out how to include the children in the ceremony in a really sweet way (this will be its own blog post later on). 

the wedding took place on a gorgeous thursday evening in camden, maine. a big shout out to bette and paul for making me feel like one of the family. i'm full of love over this one, folks; full of LOVE!

i just have two more things to say about this wedding: 1) they chose a kick ass photographer to shoot their wedding; and 2) how freakin' cute is that bride?!
