Portland Maine Wedding Photographer

Linsey and Zach had the wedding of their dreams, Saturday, August 2, 2014 in Portland, Maine.  They started their day with a first look on a carpet of rose petals; then on to bridal party photos at Spring Point Light in South Portland; a wonderful ceremony at the Church of the Immaculate Conception; a ride on the schooner Bagheera; and finally culminating with a reception on the outdoor deck at DiMillo’s on the Water!  What a fabulous day!  Being a Portland Maine wedding photographer on a day such as this, makes us extremely grateful to clients such as Linsey and Zach and their families!

Linsey gave us several opportunities to capture her portrait, and this first image is one of our favorites.

Fast forward to the point in the day Linsey and Zach made brief stop inside the Casco Bay Lines new terminal for a quick kiss before walking to the reception.

Thank you to these wonderful vendor partners:

Steve DiMillo and the staff at DiMillo’s on the Water are as hospitable and friendly as you’ll find anywhere!  For fine seafood favorites, DiMillo’s is the place to go!

Entertainment was expertly presented by Dave Dionne of Dionne Entertainment.  It’s always a pleasure to work with Dave!  Dave knows how to keep the events at the reception flowing smoothly, and plays the best music to keep everyone on the dance floor, making for a really great party!

One of the prettiest cakes we’ve seen this year by the European Bakery in Falmouth.  We were told that it was one of the best cakes that Linsey and her mom had ever tasted, and so, of course, we had to try it!  The layer of strawberries and cream cheese in the filling made for quite a memorable cake, we agreed!
