nicole + david : wedding : portland, maine
Well, I may not blog as frequently as I should but when I do be prepared for a LOT of images! Nicole and David’s wedding is a great example….full of so many great details and moments it was impossible to not go overboard when putting together this post.
This wedding was a marriage of so many perfect elements: the venue (The Portland Company is such a WOW property….definitely a favorite place of mine), the details, the vendors (I love working with Meghan from B Merry Events!), the people and, of course, Nicole and David themselves. I can’t put into words just how wonderful Nicole and David are together. How at ease and comfortable they are with each other but I believe the images below will.
Here is what Nicole had to say about the day:
The only thing David and I really knew when we started planning our wedding was that we wanted it to be ours–a celebration that was a true reflection of us. We began by choosing the Portland Company as our ceremony and reception venue–a raw, warehouse-y space with character and a history. Then we found a perfect match in our wedding planner, Meghan Torrieri of b merry events. She listened to who we are and what we like and came up with an amazing design that capitalized on the feeling of the space and was full of thoughtful details. David is a writer and I’m a little obsessed with crafting things out of paper, so our decor included a.) lots of books and b.) lots of things I handcrafted out of old books.
We also found a perfect match in our florist, Emily Carter Floral Designs. Emily totally jumped on board with our theme, making paper flowers to add in to the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets and putting together the sweetest flower girl bouquets using pinwheels I made accented with some of our wedding flowers. We wanted more of a casual feel for our reception dinner, so we chose to do food stations. A Moveable Feast did a fantastic job catering our event, with a pork tenderloin carving station, a mini slider bar, and a savory waffle station (to die for!)–so delicious and so much fun! We also had a dessert table with everything from mini cupcakes to fresh fruit to donuts. DJ Ryan Parker provided an awesome soundtrack and we danced our little hearts out.
And Stacey, oh Stacey, you captured it all! I never thought it was possible to have so much fun with a photographer. You are truly amazing.Thank you for being there.
Look at David’s expression in the photo above. It says everything.

I’ll end this post with a note I received after the wedding from Nicole …
Sorry this is a bit overdue, but I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you SO MUCH for shooting our wedding on May 27th. You were absolutely incredible to work with–I’m not someone who likes getting my picture taken but your fun, friendly, easygoing personality put me instantly at ease. I was so impressed by how quickly and easily you made our “formal pictures” come together–and you were absolutely magical with the kids! (And, let’s face it, with the adults too!)
Big thanks to you and to Scott for all your hard work. It was an absolute joy to work with you!
With much gratitude,
Nicole & David
The pleasure was all mine. Thank you for letting me be a part of your day!
