The ceremony was marked not only with the exchanging of rings, but with the exchanging of a pair of unexpected gifts. Our bride, womens hockey coach at Colby, presented Jonathan with a puck. Our groom, football coach at that same school, presented his bride with a pigskin. The light hearted spirit of this couple permeated the entire day, and ran right into the evening under the tent. Both outgoing and thoughtful, Mallory and Jonathan went to lengths to ensure every guest felt included as an important part of the day.
Mallory and Jonathan: Thank you, thank you for having me on board to capture your lovely wedding day! Best wishes to you and your new lives together, and I'll be rooting for your teams up there in Waterville!
How they met in their own words:
We both coach at Colby. Jonathan is the Football coach and Mallory is the Women's Ice Hockey coach. We traveled in the same social circles and found we shared a love for not only Colby, but also golf, the outdoors, and generally being active. Jonathan was planning to propose to Mallory in Camden, Maine, one of their favorite little towns. When the ring wasn't ready on time, he asked for an impromptu Boston visit while they were both between camp sessions. Mallory didn't think much of it and went along with the idea. They walked to the North End for dinner, then enjoyed a stroll along the water, where Jonathan proposed. The first words out of Mallory's mouth were, "You're ridiculous!" as she hugged him (and doesn't remember saying that!). She of course then said yes. To sum it up, as one of our players said, "we fell in love in Waterville", to the tune of Rihanna's "We found love".
