Wedding Season is off to a Good Start
It is a relief to know that the pandemic that affected most events last year in winding down. Gov. Mills of Maine just announced that most mask and gathering restrictions, inside and outside, are being lifted. Many couples postponed their weddings until this year, making this season one of the busiest I have seen.
My season started with two vow renewals and several small wedding in the coming weeks. First off was Tish and Jim from Belgrade, Maine. They had planned a Vow Renewal for their 50th Wedding Anniversary last year. Because of the many restrictions they were forced to put off the celebration until this year. Wanting to keep to the 50th year theme, Tish planned the Vow Renewal for the last day of their 50th year together, on April 17th. The next day was to be their 51st Anniversary. The event took place at The Senator Inn and Spa in Augusta, Maine. Their kids did a bang up job of decorating the banquet room and the food was great, along with a very good staff in attendance. Keeping with the restrictions still in place, there were almost 50 friends and relatives in attendance. What a great night and Congratulations to Tish and Jim for 50 years together.
The next Vow Renewal was Karen and Darren from Virginia. They preferred a less formal setting of Portland Head Light in Portland, Maine. Their 26 year old son, Alex, was there to witness the event. Karen and Darren had been married for 30 years and it was a very touching and heartfelt ceremony. Connie Mills of All In One Weddings officiated and coordinated the event. The day turned out to be perfect with sunshine, warmth and a beautiful sky. Congratulations to Karen and Darren.
My first official wedding to start off the season was Kelley and Ron. They came all the way from Ohio and Kentucky to get married in Kennebunkport at the Nonantum Resort. It was a perfect day for a wedding. The sun was shining, the temperature was 71 degree with a breeze coming off the ocean, and very low humidity. The ceremony was officiated by Jill of All In One Weddings, who had also contracted for my photography services. A great family to start the season off with.
The Covid-19 pandemic is becoming less of a threat as more people are vaccinated the size of the weddings are increasing. My preferred Wedding size is small, Diane and Terry had about 30 family and friends in attendance. They were married at the Old Red Church in Standish, Maine, with a reception at the Perkins House in Cornish, Maine. Maybe I am just lucky, but I get to share some happy times with some wonderful couples and their families.
Next week continues my season with a Proposal at Portland Head Light. I hope she says 'YES'.
Until next time, keep following the light....
