It’s been almost a year since I last posted a wedding. Which is crazy to me because 2018 was filled with amazing couples and their beautiful weddings. Starting today I’m going to rectify the situation with showing you Becca & Nick’s day.
Their wedding was held in Castine, Maine. Peter and I had never been to Castine before and now we know we have to go again. It’s like stepping back in time a bit. Everything seemed quieter and calmer on the streets and shoreline of Castine. Becca grew up going there in the summers with her family and has happily brought Nick into the fold. They met on a research boat in Greenland. They told the whole story in their pre-wedding post. It’s a good one. Definitely check it out.
Being married by the sea seemed perfect for these two. However, storms and winds threatened to make their outdoor ceremony very eventful, so they chose to have their ceremony at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Castine, but not before doing a first look at their original ceremony location – Ft. Madison.
After the ceremony they made their way through the town to their reception at The Wilson Museum by way of an antique Saxon, driven by a friend of Becca’s family. Following cocktail hour, guests were led to dinner under the tent by a horn procession. Heartfelt toasts and lots of dancing finished up the evening.
Becca & Nick’s day was planned by the lovely Sarah Goodwin of Daisies and Pearls. The beautiful floral arrangements were by Michelle Peele Florals. Hair and Makeup were by Ariel Johnson. The delicious and beautiful food was by Trillium Caterers. The music that got everyone dancing was performed by the fantastic Sugarbabies (who we had the pleasure of seeing at our last wedding of the year as well). They’re one of our favorite bands for sure.
Congratulations, Becca & Nick. Though it’s a few months later – you’re still newlyweds!
