portland maine wilde memorial chapel wedding

you may remember me posting some of my photos from this portland, maine wedding, which took place in the wilde memorial chapel. during the rehearsal for this wedding i both cried and jumped for joy, literally! lorraine and jared asked me to help them time the processional to the moment when the song reached its crescendo and that would be the moment the bride appeared. we must have practiced it 10 times but we nailed it! and this wasn't just any song, this was an acoustic performance of the metallica song "nothing else matters." can you think of anything more freakin' awesome than that?! no? me neither! 

the fantastic maine wedding photographer, greta tucker from greta tucker photography, shared her photos from this totally original red and white wedding. i have such a soft place in my heart for lorraine and jared and these photos made me smile! i hope they inspire you.
