Point Lookout wedding of Mary and Ryan


Ryan was an adorable groom with butterflies before his wedding ceremony - not because he was nervous about marrying Mary, but because he hadn't seen her all day when Denise and I arrived.  His Mar-Bear, as he calls her (the first word in his vows that he wrote), is the other half of him.  Together, the two have an undeniable energy that is easily witnessed, if you are around them for longer than a mere two minutes.  You can see the love, passion, friendship, and fun that these two have together.  I think they wear their hearts on their sleeves for each other, their friends, and their family.  Because of that, their day was filled with tons of emotion - laughter, smiles, hugs, tears, funny faces with the ring bearer and flower girls, and wedding cake frosting on the groom's cheek, courtesy of the bride, that he playfully ate off his face with a fork.  And of course, this also meant they didn't hold back from dancing most of the night away.  DJ Aaron Topfer played hit song after hit song, and the dancing got wilder.  Just as we were leaving, Mary, Ryan, and most of their wedding guests were refueling on pizza and drinks, and getting ready to continue their night of celebration with bowling at the eight-lane alley right on-site at the venue, Point Lookout in Northport, Maine. 

Mary and Ryan, your wedding was so much fun to document, so happy for you two!  Thanks for having Denise and I be a part of your big day.  Hope you relaxed in St. Lucia - you needed it after all that dancing!

How they met, in Mary's words:

We met at a friend's birthday party in March 2008. The second that Ryan walked in the door, our friend looked at me, then at Ryan, then back at me and said "Oh my God! You two would be PERFECT together!" It turned out that she was right! Ryan stood Mary up on their first date. Despite being royally annoyed, she trusted her instincts and gave him another chance. They have been together almost every day since. Ryan told Mary on their third date that he wanted to marry her, but it took another five years to pop the question.
