Bowdoin Chapel real Maine wedding

I love outdoor weddings, but being inside the Bowdoin Chapel on a Saturday in July brought a smile to my face. The walls of the Chapel are covered in colorful, elaborate paintings; the high ceilings and stained glass windows make it feel grand; the blue velvet seat cushions and the long pews evoke British royalty. In a word I was awed by its beauty and charm. And that's just the venue! The wedding couple, Rachel and Harrison chose me as their officiant, and I am truly honored they did. I encouraged them to be present on their wedding day, and to their credit they took my advice. The calm, love, and sweetness they expressed set the tone for their wedding day, which was a relaxed, comfortable and joyous day! What a festive occasion in a gorgeous location!
