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! 🙂

Sometimes on the day of a shoot there are severe thunderstorms, lightening strikes, flood warnings and it seems as if there is no way around rescheduling…but then, everything stops, the sun comes out and you are gifted with a beautiful evening for photos! Jordan met Joey and Joanna in Portland, Maine between storms for their engagement photos along the East End waterfront. We can’t wait to celebrate with them at The Barn at Walnut Hill next month and photograph all the laughs, snuggles and beauty their wedding day will bring!

The Barn on Walnut Hill was the perfect location for Becky and Jack’s laid back wedding weekend. The two said their “I do’s” on a Friday evening surrounded by their families and in the presence of their dog Sammi (with an “I”) of course! Saturday, then, was left open to party it up with all of their guests and just enjoy. Both days were filled with so much love and joy for the couple and it couldn’t have been more obvious that everyone was having a blast. Who wouldn’t love two days of cocktails, lawn games, beautifully prepared food, and great company?! Congratulations Becky and Jack!…Oh, and Sammi of course!
