The 2014 wedding season is quickly coming to a a close, it is autumn in Maine and most couples don’t want to risk winter weather travel woes, so the season tends to wrap up in October.
It goes without saying that not every weekend in the typical wedding high-season can have perfect weather, especially in New England, and no matter what the Farmer’s Almanac says, sometimes it will rain on a wedding day. But I’m a lucky photographer when I have a couple who will solider on despite what the weather brings. Two weekends ago I had just such a a couple, two native Mainers named Erin and Dan. Most brides aren’t willing to risk stepping out in the the rain for photos, but not Erin! She was braver than I would have been on my wedding day and insisted that we stop by Falmouth Town Landing for photos, just like the plan was all along. She was completely undeterred by the rain, and was able to have a fun and phenomenal wedding day, complete with outdoor portraits regardless. I loved her positive attitude!
Their wedding was held at Saint Joseph Church in Portland, and their reception at The Woodland’s Club, a place near and dear to their hearts. Both Erin and Dan are from Falmouth, Maine, and Erin grew up at the Woodlands, her parent’s home is just blocks from the reception hall. Their guests were treated to an awesome dinner and seriously rockin’ party, thanks to The Carmine Band. They brought the house down!
Erin and Dan headed off to tour Ireland for their honeymoon, I hope you’re having an amazing time you two!
