When I first talked with Courtney and Barry about their late November wedding, they mentioned really wanting snow on their wedding day. That’s a pretty hit or miss scenario in Maine in the late fall, so I can only imagine the excitement at their house when the big Thanksgiving snowstorm hit just three days before their wedding. Not only did they get their white wedding day, they had the most perfect wedding day. Even with the literally freezing temperatures, nothing could get Courtney and Barry or their wonderful family and friends down. There was so much happy, and so much excitement and love all day long.
The ceremony was held at the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception in Portland, followed by formals on the Eastern Promenade and in the Old Port, followed by a quick stop at Ri Ra, and then a gorgeous rustic-themed reception at one of my favorite venues, Portland’s Ocean Gateway. The Bob Charest Band kept the floor packed all evening, as they always do, and guests were treated to hilarious toasts, fun dancing, a fun photo booth thanks to Parrott’s Photo Booth, and even a cart full of very yummy gelato from Gorgeous Gelato for dessert.
It has been an incredible season of weddings and I am so excited to share my final one of the year – it could not have ended on a better note. Congratulations Courtney and Barry!
