Heather and Amy (below) are the force behind Cairn Events, the event planning company assigned to create the concept for our room.
Our models shockingly aren't professional models (but could be!), a cute married couple (with three kids!). Thank you, Zakia and Ross, and to Heather's daughter Maegan!
Whitney and Samantha of Gus and Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth shared a sampling of their stunning custom invitation suites. They also created a "program" for our room, a letterpressed quote from The Secret Garden suitable for framing with a band that called out the room's participating vendors, as well as labels for the food stations, place cards and menu cards.
Do you know Carolyn Snell of Snell Family Farm? This woman is on fire!! Her perfectly chosen array of greenery and pops of plum were brilliantly displayed throughout the space, and her kind up-for-anything attitude was adored by all.
Surely you recognize these two. Whitney and her photo backpack on the front always cracks me up.
The team from Wallace Events drove down from Ellsworth to lend lighting and other rentals for the day. What a pleasure to work with these gentlemen!
Christian and his team at Dandelion Catering had an open kitchen to make and share an insanely awesome array of bites including, for one mouth-watering example, Maine lobster with truffle creme fraiche, beet reduction and smoked paprika.
The ladies of Love Kupcakes wowed with creative combinations like this one, strawberry lime mojito with mint!
After a cocktail hour, attendees filtered into our room to soak it all in.
And we opened our photo booth, the insanely fun Maine Snapshot Studio.
After gathering in the booth, a 4x6 print pops out and guests can tag themselves on a tablet to share on social media or send via email.
You may remember this gorgeous lineup from a few years ago.... Alyssa, far left, was the recipient of the Real Maine Weddings magazine Wedding of the Year that we photographed in 2012! She was attending with two of her bridesmaids who are now engaged. SO FUN seeing and squeezing these beloved friends!
Bravo, team! We loved the chance to work with- and photograph!- you all!
