Hannah and Jon married at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, a picturesque locale perched on a grassy knoll above yet another beautiful rocky Maine seacoast. I could have spent all day there photographing the newlyweds! Their wedding day brought some of that summer heat and vitamin D that we're all craving after a hearty Maine winter, and guests soaked it all up enjoying cocktail hour at the museum. Ogunquit Trolley Company transported guests to Jonathan's Restaurant to continue the night's festivities. Guests were treated to a lobster bake, amongst other tasty dishes, a three tiered wedding cake (each a different flavor), and blueberry pie, if someone needed a good ol' Maine dessert fix.
Hannah and Jon made their rowdy entrance to the reception with a wood beam and an American flag -- I still have to find out what that was all about! They had their first dance to a Dave Matthews Band song. Hannah's dad Andy was her softball team coach, so it was only fitting they danced to "Put Me In Coach." Jon danced with his mom Sherry to Natalie Merchant's "Kind and Generous." DJ Mike kept the dance floor full and guests movin'! Hannah gave her bouquet to her grandparents, Doris and Ben, who have been married a whopping 66 years!
Hannah and Jon, I know you've been together 6 years already, but here's to the start of your own 67 years of marriage! Thanks so much for letting me document your big day. I had a blast and it was so nice to meet your families. Cheers, Mr. and Mrs. Edson!
How they met, according to Hannah:
We met at a party at Jon's house when we were both students at Keene
State College. Towards the end of the night I was standing in the
kitchen talking with a few people and noticed Jon walk by multiple
times. He seemed like he wanted to say hi but was a little hesitant.
Eventually he came over and I can remember feeling instantly at ease
during our conversation.
A few days later we hung out for the first time and I
told him that my friend and I were going to my hometown in New York for
spring break and he and his friend should come. We had only known each
other for a week, but during the trip it was as if we had know each
other for years. We spent the day at the wax museum in Manhattan and he
made me laugh while I took pictures of him boxing Evander Holyfield and
dancing with Jessica Simpson.
Since that weekend the past six years have been filled with laughs and good times.
