When I met with doctors Laura and Eric last year to talk about their wedding, I knew their wedding would be unique. Laura said no black & white photos, just color. They said there would be no dancing at their reception, just dinner. And they said they are uncomfortable being affectionate in public. Okeydoke...
Their wedding ceremony and reception- both at the Harraseeket Inn
in Freeport- was lovely. The ceremony featured two love songs that Laura professionally recorded for her new husband. And their reception, an elegant social dinner, was equally as touching. Photographing in color-only was a breeze, as Laura and Eric's decorations were combinations of bright, bold purples. And the bit about them not being affectionate in public? So not true! They were adorably smiley and sweet on each other all day long.

Have you seen this before? A new branding for double-sided tape. Love it!
Laura's dress was custom-made by Portland couture designer Amy Curtis
. This is her detailed train.
Laura and Eric met on a blind date. Their first meeting was in the parking lot across the street from the Inn. Can you guess where?

The happy couple!
The reception featured a thick blueberry drink. Not really sure what was in it, but everyone liked it! And, it was in the purple theme. ;)
Keeping colors in mind, I watched the cake table transform into a work of art as the sun set. The cake was from the wonderful Let Them Eat Cake in Kennebunk.
Laura and Eric are honeymooning in DisneyWorld and have emailed pictures from their new digital camera of their fun week (Eric's first time there!) and mentioned they have been checking the blog for their pictures! Enjoy! And give Mickey a hug for me!
"We are having an absolute BLAST at Disney. They gave us "Just Married"
buttons to wear which has gotten us LOTS of congratulations and well wishes
everywhere on Disney property. We have had napkins in the shape of hearts, a
congratulatory dessert at Todd English's Bluezoo restaurant, and an
invitation to dance in front of everyone at a dinner show (which we did!).
We are enjoying being kids.
Thanks so much for your sweet spirit and presence at our wedding. You were
very calming during the "beautification period" prior to the wedding, and
the gals enjoyed you. I did not even notice you at the ceremony, though I
know you must have been there with your unobtrusive style! And thanks for
making the most of picture opportunities at the reception which I know was
more of a challenge with no dancing, bouquet toss, etc."
