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!
No child should grow up hungry in Maine, but one in four children in our state struggles with hunger. Full Plate Full Potential’s Go Big for Hunger campaign is ending childhood hunger in Maine by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. We can’t think of a more worthy cause to offer our time to! We were absolutely thrilled to photograph this phenomenal fundraising dinner for Full Plates Full Potential at the Barn at Flanagan Farm this month. It’s always a blast to get back in the kitchen with chefs Rob Evans from Duckfat, Ilma Lopez and Damian Sansonetti of Piccolo and Chaval, as well as Matt Ginn from Evo Kitchen & Bar. All who participated in this fundraising event donated their time and services! WOW! Everything from the beautiful set up by Paula Cano of A Family Affair to the AMAZING Charcuterie sampling from Whole Foods Market, the servers, chefs and of course the Barn at Flanagans Farm. What a special event to be a part of! Cheers to this worthy cause!
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! 🙂
This rainy morning is the perfect time to share Joanna and Josh’s Maple Rock Farm, Maine barn wedding. The rain on their wedding day didn’t stop the couple from enjoying their celebration to the fullest. Beer taps, a s’mores cart, and homemade pies?! Joanna and Josh’s wedding was full of special treats, lots of laughs, and tons of love.
It’s finally starting to feel (and look) like winter here in Maine!
Best Bridesmaid EVER.
A First Look = A Happy Couple + Cuddles + Beer
