The state slogan of Maine is “The Way Life Should Be” but it could easily be the tagline for Ashley + Tyler’s wedding. As I pulled into downtown Kennebunkport, past the cute stores and ice cream shops, I had a feeling it was going to be a great day. And even though there were a few sprinkles, it made the view of the ocean from The Nonantum Resort even more stunning. The diffused light making the colors more intense. The boats like little jewels bopping in the harbor.
I started my day with Ashley in the bridal suite capturing the small, fleeting moments-- Ashley's bridesmaids chatting with her mom, Tyler’s groomsmen adjusting his collar, the best friend huddle before walking down the aisle. Then, it was onto the big events-- the ceremony at the South Congregational church and reception at the Nonantum. At one point during the dinner, I noticed that just about all of Ashley and Tyler’s friends and family were laughing. That sense of fun continued onto the dance floor for the rest of the evening. A wheelbarrow ride (family tradition), the limbo and lots of dancing capped off the night. Ashley and Tyler, huge congratulations! I can’t wait to see you in Stowe where the rosé will be on me!
