We've been Published!

I'm so very excited to announce that a wedding I've photographed has made it onto The Knot! Alyssa and John were an absolute blast to work with for their Colony Hotel Wedding in Kennebunkport, Maine. I met them over a year before their wedding and we instantly clicked. They're love for the beach and all things Maine is very similar to what drove my husband and myself to move here so many years ago. Their sense of humor and desire for gorgeous wedding images had me hooked on having them as my clients and I'm so very thankful they chose me to capture their day!

The Colony Wedding - Kennebunkport Wedding Photographers - wedding couple on rocks by the ocean

Since Alyssa Welsh (26, a Purchasing Buyer) and John Rake (36, an Engineer) decided to have a mid-summer wedding on the ocean, they felt it was only natural to go with a beach, nautical theme. The couple held their wedding at The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine, a historic landmark built in 1914. A color palette of tiffany blue, navy blue and tan, and nautical decor elements like fishbowl centerpieces filled with sand and seashells and monkey fist rope knot table numbers, brought out the gorgeous ocean setting of their wedding. After a cocktail hour with passed seafood appetizers of lobster quiche and bacon wrapped scallops and a dinner of chicken wellington and prime rib, everyone enjoyed whoopie pie desserts and a bite out of the couples amazing nautical cake with sugar "sand" and seashells spread across the layers!
