Mackenzie and Stewart were married at the Falmouth Country Club in Falmouth, Maine on September 10th, 2016. The morning of the wedding, I arrived at Marriott Sable Oaks in South Portland, Maine to photograph Mackenzie and the ladies getting ready. My second shooter, Tracey Mason was also on site with Stewart and the men in the wedding party. Mackenzie left for the first look in a limo with all of her bridesmaids and met up with Stewart and the guys at Falmouth Town Landing for their First Look and wedding party portraits. We then proceeded to Falmouth Country Club for a beautiful wedding ceremony outside and a lovely tented reception that lit up in blue and purple as the evening went on. The live band, Time Pilots was amazing and got everyone on the dance floor. It truly was an amazing wedding that I will certainly remember!
Words from the bride and groom…
What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?
We envisioned our wedding exactly how it turned out. It was a extremely special day, our family was comfortable and happy, our friends all had a great time, and as the bride and groom we couldn’t have pictured things going better.
What was your color palette and your style vision?
Our colors were blush, ivory, blue/navy. We had a classic and romantic style.
What is your favorite moment of your wedding day?
Our favorite moment was our first kiss! What a moment!! There are many great moments throughout the day, we had a perfect ceremony, great weather for photos, beautiful toasts, and our first dance was awesome!
What song did you do your first dance to?
Our first dance was My Best Friend by Queen, preformed by Time Pilots Band.
Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors, your cake, etc.
Our cake was just as we had envisioned, it was classic and with the cascade of flowers down the side it was gorgeous.
Our favors were super fun, the grooms mother custom painted over 100 individual little terracotta pots where we then put a nice little succulent plant in each.
Our flowers were all made by the wedding party and other special people. Everything came together so nice.
The brides dress is hard to describe, but it was everything the bride was looking for and blew the grooms mind when we saw his bride!
What advice would you give to couples who are currently planning their wedding?
Our advice to other planning a wedding is... You are going to be stressed, it is a lot of work, there is no way around this. Work hard on the big stuff now, and enjoy it later, we noticed that the more planning we did early on the easier later on was and we were able to focus on the little details not scrambling to get big ticket items done.
One last little thing, planning takes way longer than you think. Allow yourself time.
