This year’s wedding season kicked off with Kimberly and Tim’s wedding at Maple Rock Farm in Parsonsfield, Maine. May at Maple Rock Farm is just beautiful! Although we just missed the apple blossoms on the trees in the orchard, Spring had finally sprung and everything was lush, green, and gorgeous. I was so excited to be a part of Kimberly and Tim’s big day because THEY were just so excited and kept talking about how much they wanted their day to just be the best party they ever threw. It’s so fun when couples add so many personal touches to their celebration; Kimberly made all of the bridesmaids jewelry (gorgeous bracelets and earrings),  her father made the arbor they were married under, and the signature cocktails were the couples’ very own recipes, and their favorite Maine touches like Funky Bow beer and lobster rolls! Their day surely was an AMAZING party and all who attended had such a great time. Kimberly and Tim, cheers to many more amazing parties and happy times together!

I can’t think of a better way to have kicked off this wedding season than to have been a part of Kimberly and Tim’s Maple Rock Farm wedding. Although I have many favorite moments from their celebration, I’d have to say one of my favorites was stealing them away before the party started. With so much to do and so many people to see, taking a few moments to enjoy some time together alone is just so special. I can’t wait to share more images from their wedding on the blog soon!

I get so excited when I talk about Relevant Workshop! I just never know where to begin! My co-captain in planning this event, Meg Simone and I just wrapped up year two of Relevant Workshop a few weeks ago and I have been trying to wrap my head around a blog post since that day. We created this workshop as a way to bring wedding businesses from our Maine and New Hampshire communities together for a day filled with learning, inspiration and engagement, and to be totally honest, had no clue if it was going to fly. You know that feeling you get when you put your creation out there? When you whole heartedly share that you think something is fantastic and important? And you hold your breath for just a second because you hope so deeply that everyone else thinks the same thing?!?! Well, that happened again this year and after holding my breath for just a second we saw the most fantastic group of speakers, sponsors and attendees make year two of Relevant Workshop even better than we could have imagined! I love this event, not just because Meg and I pour our energy into it in such a personal way, but because our community needs this. We all crave connecting in a more personal way. Sharing our ideas, our love for what we do and the struggles we ALL have in running our small businesses. Year two of Relevant Workshop filled me right up with all kinds of excitement for what lies ahead, not just for my own business but for this entire community! Can’t wait for next year! 🙂
