The first thing I noticed when I met Blair and Andrew and started listening to their families and guests was everyone's warm southern drawl. Out of place, but so welcome in Maine, the sweet accents shared stories of how nearly all of their 200 guests traveled to Rockport and their adventures along the way, as well as toasts (and roasts!) about the couple at the rehearsal dinner the night before. It was the perfect introduction to a most fun wedding day.
After the ceremony they scrapped some of the formalities (no dinner toasts or cake cutting) and got right to the fun stuff, including a custom curtained-off section of the ballroom to house our photo booth (this group is known for getting a bit rowdy in photo booths we hear!) with props that many donned throughout the night on the dance floor, right through the "lobster claw" send-off at the end of the evening.
A healthy handful of the day's highlights below!

Stunning modern decor by Kate Parker.
Powering up for the reception. Ha!
Andrew takes his love of Maine very seriously.
