What a beautiful day it was in downtown Camden for Riccardo and Christina's wedding day! They spent the week vacationing in the area and finished up the trip by getting hitched! We started our day at the house where everyone was getting ready. The ladies smoothed the way for the start to my day's work by having the dresses and gifts all laid out in a beautiful display before I had even arrived! Then, after all preparations were complete, it was time to enjoy a glass of champagne and a walk down to the ceremony site. Please scroll through to enjoy the photos and stories that follow, thanks!

The wedding ceremony was held in the scenic downtown Camden Amphitheater. The harpist played melodically as guests arrived to the well decorated site. Parasols were on site to help keep cool every one cool, as well as add a picturesque touch to the photos! Lanterns and fresh flower petals lined the aisle which lead the way to the stairs where they would shortly marry.
This wedding was a very family centered one, with their combined children helping to make up the bridal party!
Once we finished up with some photos in Camden, it was time to head over to the Samoset Resort in Rockport for the reception. The layout was very relaxed with a nice long cocktail hour for everyone to enjoy each others company on the greens, while snacking away on the delicious spread!
After introductions and first dances, everyone came up for a group hug! The whole day was a very loving display, with endearing(and funny) speeches given by not only their friends, but their children as well.
A cigar bar!!! What an awesome wedding idea... Not only that, we pulled out the off camera flashes for some fun shots in the dark!
Another awesome part, was this impromtu limbo, which made for some great photos...and even a little pain for some, OW!
To close out the celebrations, Riccardo and Christina had a suprise for everyone....FIREWORKS! After the ceremony, the fog rolled in heavy from the harbor and they were almost cancelled. The final call was made to go ahead with them though, making for quite the closing celebration!
Thank you Riccardo and Christina!
