Katie and Paul were married on the coast of York, ME at a beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by a cozy reception at the York Harbor Inn. After meeting online six years ago, their first date was one that Katie though would be “over in an hour” but lasted 3, much to the couples delight! The “Match” was indeed made. Since then our bride and groom have navigated multiple moves, job changes and masters degrees together finally landing at their ultimate adventure, their wedding day!
The couple chose the York Harbor Inn as both grew up vacationing in Maine, Paul in Wells and Katie in York. As a place they have always known to go to relax and enjoy, it was the perfect location for the wonderful day they had planned for their family a friends to gather together and celebrate.
We started the day with our bride and groom as they got ready. Thought the rain absolutely poured outside while they donned suit and gown, the clouds held back just in time for the ceremony to take place seaside. Guests gathered on the green of the Hartley Mason Preserve and soon the bride and groom approached. After sweet vows and an even sweeter first kiss, Katie and Paul made their way back down the aisle as husband and wife, just as the clouds parted for some well timed and long awaited sunshine.
Next it was onto the reception.The decor was nautical themed with many personal touches including wedding photos of grandparents and parents. Even those not physically present were absolutely there in spirit and a big part of the celebration. After their formal introduction as husband and wife, the dance floor was immediately warmed by the couples first dance and parent dances. Guests were then treated to lovely and heartfelt toasts from the best Man and Maid of Honor. Indeed bringing everyone together and sharing this love of family and friends was what Katie and Paul were most looking forward to. The end of the night saw a crowded dance floor with some of the best moves coming from the bride and groom themselves!
Katie and Paul, thank you for making us part of your wonderful wedding day! It was our pleasure creating your films for you!
