Not everyone plans their coastal Maine wedding in November, but Joey and Katie did! In a year that was full of some crazy weather, it proved to be no different for them. Thankfully, it was reasonably warm and the rains cleared off for a few outdoor photos, but WOW, that wind was crazy! Everything about this day was both beautiful and fun, and it was also a perfect way to end my wedding season. I’m thankful they chose me to capture their big day, and hope that you enjoying reliving the day through the photos and stories that follow. Thanks for coming, and cheers!

When I met Al and asked if he was the father, he said, “No, I’m the F.O.B.” haha!
Ellie has been a life long companion, so of course was included as part of the day!
The ceremony was held at this beautiful church in Falmouth, The Episcopal Church of Saint Mary. Its stone architecture, made for a perfect backdrop!
For the wedding party photos, we jumped outside once the rain started to clear up. It was cold and REALLY WINDY, but that also made for this perfect photo of Joey and Katie walking together surround by blowing leaves!
Before the official cocktail hour and reception, it was time to stop off at their favorite brewery together (Bissell Brothers) for a pint and a few snaps!
The reception was held at Brick South, which is a really cool industrial event space also located on Thompsons Point, just across from the brewery!
A really unique and cool aspect of the reception was the lack of traditional toasts by friends. Instead, stories and toasts were written out and placed around everywhere. Very cool!
A good old fashioned wedding cake to the face!
Among my favorites memories of the day was this next moment. For their wedding cake topper, Katie borrowed her grandparents one that was used on their cake 60 years ago! It was especially sweet to see the grandparents invited to come up and cut the cake as well -60 years after they first did!
With the formalities complete, it was time to get back to the party and Danny of Northeast Event Design got the floor moving!
Towards the end of my time, the kids came out to pass out comfy socks for everyone to dance in haha!
Thank you Joey and Katie!
