Christina and Anthony were married at Portland Company Complex in Portland, Maine on June 2. The bride looked lovely in a lace gown featuring an illusion lace neckline and short sleeves. She wore her hair in a low chignon and carried a bright summer bouquet of peonies, poppies, garden roses, and greenery. The groom looked dapper in a gray three-piece suit complete with a light neck tie and a pocket watch. The couple tied the knot seaside under a hand-knit chuppah. After they exchanged vows, guests walked about five minutes to the reception space which was an industrial style space featuring wooden floors, a brick wall, and exposed beams. “Guests were then invited to get all aboard the train for a fun little ride around while they all mingled and drank old fashioneds and lemonades before being dropped back at the reception,” said Jessica of A Brit & A Blonde. Friends and family members also enjoyed local Maine and New England beers during cocktail hour. Guests sat at long banquet tables complete with chevron table runners in crossback chairs. The tables were lined with glass bud vases with snapdragon and tulip arrangements in them.  “Anthony & Christina are true blue wedding DIYers,” Jessica said. “Almost every single detail and décor item was done by them or one of their family or friends.” In lieu of tangible wedding favors, a donation was made to Uncommon Schools. The menu included spring radish slivers, whole grilled arctic char stuffed with fennel and herbs, and quinoa salad with pickled rhubarb. For dessert, guests enjoy a single-tier buttercream cake adorned with a flower, as well as a tower of Whoopie pies! See the full board here.

Katelyn and Noel were married at The Barn on Walnut Hill in North Yamouth, Maine on September 21. “Ironically enough Noel and I met in an Irish bar on St. Patrick’s Day…and did I mention he’s Irish?” Katelyn said. “”When Noel and I were in the very first stages of planning our wedding we knew that, stylistically speaking, we wanted it to be two things…simple and personal.” The bride wore a sweetheart ruched a-line wedding gown, accessorized with “something blue” high heels and a floral hair pin in her tousled and teased updo, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a skinny tie. During the ceremony, “we had our family members bring us birch branches during the wedding itself that we then united between the two of us as our unity,” Katelyn said. Guests were served refreshments and cocktails following from beverage dispensers. Inside, “we barely needed to decorate the barn itself because of its majestic and inherent beauty,” she said. In lieu of a guest book, the couple’s family members and friends wrote their well wishes on rocks that the couple gathered at one of their favorite spots – The Point on Students’ Island at Mooselookmeguntic Lake.” See the full board here.
