Married in Love

This is a collection of couples I’ve married or couples whose vows I’ve renewed, or inspiring couples that I just want to share.

Lauren & Matt, 2016

Lauren & Matt were married at the 1774 Inn in Phippsburg, Maine ( What a glorious wedding. The location is heavenly.  Green hillside overlooking a pristine cove. The bride, the flowers, all of their amazing dresses – truly one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever witnessed. Note that I only “witnessed” this wedding. Lauren’s uncle, a prominent NH attorney, was actually set to perform the ceremony when they realized the breadth of his legal authority to marry people did not include the state of Maine. So the Phippsburg Town Clerk suggested a Maine Officiant witness the event and complete the marriage license for him. I couldn’t have been more pleased to have been picked. It was my pleasure to play even a tiny role in Lauren & Matt’s beautiful wedding day. (Courtney Lucas Photography)

Joel & Helena, 2014

This is Joel about to marry his beautiful wife Helena. The sweet location is a friend’s backyard on the water in South Portland. What a perfect day. They only gave me a week’s notice – when Joel & Helena decide something they evidently go for it! Their daughter Janee was just a baby then; now I hear she has a new baby brother – congratulations to them all! This couple has the most wonderful friends who provided amazing food, music, libations, and all the love & good wishes any couple would need to start a new life as a married family of three. Now four! (Photo: Jen Joaquin, Vibrant Art Studios)

Vincent & Laura, 2016

This is Vincent & Laura: They’ve got to be New York’s Most Romantic Couple. They took a break from their busy lives & renewed their vows at the Popham Chapel in Phippsburg, Maine. It was a simple, standard ceremony on paper. But standing with them at the altar took on a different, higher meaning. They’re so in love. Vinny wanted to renew their vows at a little chapel by the ocean at sunset. That vision came true. We played music. Read passages. Renewed vows. It was so amazingly romantic. I’ll never forget them & their beautiful ceremony in the little church by the sea. (Photo: Claire Winston-Wade, Ham & Cheese Photography)
