Roman + Shaina's Wedding | The Samoset Resort | Rockport, Maine Wedding Photographer

What a beautiful day it ended up being for Roman and Shaina's wedding! This is the kind of day a photographer dreams of, a wonderful couple, great scenery, successful bubble exits, a gorgeous 1940's hot rod, ballroom dancing(plus a Hora), and finally, a clear sky with stars! The day started out with everyone getting ready at The Samoset Resort in Rockport, ME.  Local to me, this is a great location to have your wedding day festivities. After the bride and groom were ready, they met on the deck for a first look. Roman's reaction had to be on of my favorites of all time - just look at his face! Once we were finished with some family and bridal portraits, it was off to Synagogue Adas Yoshuron for the Ketubah signing and wedding ceremony. I always love the opportunity to experience new things, like the Ketubah signing, which is the Jewish equivalent of a marriage license or agreement. The ceremony was capped off with a fun bubble exit and the getaway car was a beautiful rose colored 1940's hot rod. Certainly couldn't have asked for a better prop to use for a few photos! The evening was capped off with some well planned dances, a memorable hora dance, and lastly a beautifully clear sky for a final portrait under the stars!

It's hard to pick a favorite moment from the day, but this was such an emotionally beautiful moment, and probably my favorite! The morning of the wedding, the Grandmother took a terrible fall which resulted in a trip to the hospital. She was, very sadly, not expected to join in on the day's festivities. After the the ceremony though, we arrived back at the samoset where an an ambulance was waiting with grandmother to greet them! This moment brought me to tears as her husband in a wheelchair came to greet his bride on a gurney. It was such a happy moment for her to have made an appearance or as she put it, "I'm known for making grand entrances, you shouldn't expect anything less". That may be a slight paraphrase, but that was the gist of it!
