Jasmine and Caren were married this past summer at St. George’s Episcopal Church followed by a reception at Foster’s Clambake in Maine.
Jasmine and Caren have been together for a decade and were thrilled to have their closest friends and family gather from all over the country for their coastal wedding and clambake. This wedding was all about celebrating their love and journey with those that have meant the most and have been so supportive over the years.
Since the couple used to live in York, they had a clear idea of how they wanted their day to look and flow weaving in their favorite and most endearing parts of Maine. The ceremony was at a very special location for the couple. When they lived in York, St. George’s Episcopal Church was the church they attended and has a long-standing family history. In front of their nearest and dearest, Jasmine and Caren professed their love and exchanged life long vows.
Following the ceremony, the couple sealed the deal with a sweet and rainy signing of their marriage license under their rainbow flag umbrella in the church’s memorial garden. This location is where Caren’s late Aunt was buried, a woman who fought for gay rights from within the Episcopal church.❤️
Since the couple had a lot of west coast guests, they wanted to give them a quintessential New England experience and Fosters Clambake was the perfect spot! The couple’s sister in law, Caitlin Bishop, spent many hours creating all of the centerpieces and worked with the couple to create the atmosphere they were dreaming of. Jasmine and Caren took their time enjoying each second as the reception got rolling. Lovely and sweet toasts celebrating the newlyweds, amazing seafood and tons of dancing made for a momentous night to remember.
So much love on all sides made this an absolute joy to capture – we were thrilled to be there. Caren and Jasmine are also excited to share these highlights with their friends and family who couldn’t make it. Enjoy!
