A number of years ago, a 4 year old Laura told her mother that she was going to marry Matt. Who knew?! That was pretty much one of coolest beginnings of a love story I have ever heard at a wedding! While they weren't childhood sweethearts, they did grow up together in a sense, and were acquaintances in high school. Their story really began at their 10 year reunion though, when the shy boy from high school asked her out on a date. Laura called her best friend with excitement the next day, "You'll never believe who asked me out"... The rest is history! I had the pleasure of meeting these two last year for the engagement session in Freeport, where we had a great time wandering the outdoors and getting to know each other! It's always fun to show up already having spent some time together and I had been looking forward to this wedding! There were some slight nerves to start the day, but Laura was also clearly excited...very excited! I hope you enjoy the following photos below, and the story they tell. Thanks for coming!

After some getting ready and bridal party portraits, it was time for the ceremony to begin! Matt and Laura had their nuptials in downtown Wiscasset at The First Congregational Church. The church is beautiful and bright inside, which is always helpful! Their ceremony was full of music starting with Castlebay performing before the ceremony and a set of quartet friends doing various numbers throughout the ceremony. It was some of the most beautiful singing I had heard in a while, so easy to get lost in!
Throughout the ceremony, you could see this couple constantly shooting loving glances at each other!
After some quick portraits at the church, we walked downtown together to hit up a couple of great locations! We started at the Sunken Gardens, which is large and well kept garden area set inside of an old foundation. It's a beautiful little "secret garden" sort of hidden away though in the center of the downtown area! Next we trotted over to the historic Castle Tucker Mansion, yet another lovely spot within a short distance of the church!
It was now time to head over to The Bath Golf Club and join the rest of the wedding guests and party the night away!
That moment you are caught getting food before the bride and groom!!! I laugh every time I see this photo haha!
Thank you Matt and Laura!
