Some say rain makes for an even more radiant bride, and Dana proved that abundantly true on Saturday, May 6th in Casco, Maine. Misty rain (and occasional downpours) fell on and off all day at the rustic and beautiful Migis Lodge on Sebago Lake, but Dana glowed with happiness. “I can’t wait to see him,” she murmured as she waited anxiously to begin her walk down to the isolated dock on Moose Point where he waited.
I’d asked LeEric earlier if he thought he’d be emotional, and he’d laughed the thought off, but there was no question emotions were running high from the minute he saw Dana for the first time in her wedding gown. (See for yourself in the images above!) The rest of the day passed quickly in a flood of happy tears and laughter.
“Dana was always the girl I just wanted to be near,” Dana’s sister Jaime said in her moving speech, and LeEric’s brothers had him laughing and crying during their speeches, in turn. It was incredibly heart-warming to see the close bond between these two families being joined in marriage, and I found myself tearing up listening to them. Some of the best dancing I’ve seen at a wedding capped off the night, and the party was still going strong as my second shooter and I packed up our gear, happy and exhausted. I am beyond honored Dana and LeEric chose me to photograph their day, and I loved every minute of working with them and their hilarious and fun family and friends!
Throughout these shots, you’ll note the work of these amazing vendors (or they’re just amazing and deserved a mention!):
A huge thank you to the staff at the Migis Lodge, especially wedding coordinator, Robyn Hammond-Sala, and Cake Artist, Caitlan Morris
I also want to thank the amazing Matt and Heather Forcier of LMV Productions who made my day soooo much easier and even more fun!
And a final thank you to my very talented and hard-working Second Shooter and BFF: Jessica Harris!
