Casual Maine wedding: Laura + Bobby

September 28, 2009

Courtney of Flush Designs and Erin Hearts Court (trés talented, no??) sent us this really sweet Maine wedding with a super wedding day story attached. First, the wedding is super cute and full of delicious details so we’re excited to post it anyway. But you know how we love a good story.


It absolutely poured rain on the day of the wedding. It was so soggy that the couple and EHC decided to take all of their portrait photos the next day, in the pretty post storm light. Flexibility and staying relaxed is so key for a successful wedding!


Luckily the family had rented a HUGE house in Cape Porpoise Kennebunkport, so with a little help from everyone, the beach ceremony was moved inside. They moved around all the furniture in the living room to make room for a ceremony, strung up a few key pieces of decor, and just went with the flow.

As it turned out, holding the ceremony in an intimate space was incredibly special and made for an even more beautiful little ceremony. Even Court sobbed her way through their vows, making it pretty hard to take pictures. But that’s why there are two of them! (Erin being less of a softy, apparently). Had their ceremony been out on the beach as planned, it certainly would have been lovely, but the guests would have missed the sentiment and the reading of Laura and Bobby’s own, perfect vows in favor of the crashing waves. And plus, isn’t there something so romantic about a rainy day?


And luckily the reception was tented so plans for dinner could continue on.


Good details, no? Laura’s sister made the river rock escort cards. So cute. And Courtney did the flowers, picking 85% from local wildflower patches and supplementing with a delivery from a local farmer.


For dinner they served a traditional lobster bake along with Maine whoopie pies. It’s so fun to plan an event in line with the local fare. It makes the entire party feel like it has a cohesive theme without any extra effort.

Bubbles! And the party went late. The caterers left. The tent was semi trashed.

But the party was good. Like really good.
