Portland Maine Wedding | Portland Maine Wedding Photographers

Laura and Paul had the perfect spring wedding. A beautiful April day, wonderful family and friends, a gorgeous dress, amazing florals, a handsome groom, and a breathtaking bride. There was nothing we didn’t love about this beautiful Portland Maine wedding. It was like a breath of fresh air and a fairytale blended together. We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter beginning to our Maine wedding season.

Family played a large role in this lovely wedding. Laura and Paul both have large extended families, which makes for a warm and wonderful wedding celebration. Laura’s stunning wedding dress came from Paul’s side of the family. This extraordinary dress was worn for the first time 64 years ago. Laura was the third lucky bride to wear this dreamy vintage dress. It fit to perfection, with virtually no altering needed. Delicate and incredibly beautiful, it suited Laura to perfection. I think you can probably tell by now, that we’re (okay, Liz) obsessed with this dress! One final note, Laura’s gorgeous bouquet, created by Lauren Springer of Fiddleheads, was perfection!!

No coastal Maine wedding photography would be complete without a trip to the Old Port and Wharf Street. It was to our advantage as the reception was held at the Mariner’s Church, right in the midst of the Old Port. Here are our favorites of this elegant Portland Maine wedding!
