Stefanie and Tom are an absolutely lovely couple who live five minutes away from me. This was unique as so many of my clients are from out of town and I rarely get to spend as much face time with my clients as I did with Stef and Tom. We worked very closely for over a year planning and designing a gorgeous affair.
Stefanie wanted a magical midsummers night dream feel which we created with lush flowers, a canopy of birch trees lit with golden twinkle lights and lots of candles. It helped that the celebration site was at Laudholm Farm in Wells, Maine which is one of the best venues in the southern Maine seacoast. The ceremony was in the wonderful barn with Stefanie arriving in style in an antique Bently. Cocktails followed on the lawn off the main house with Jeff Clayton of PanNeubean Steel creating a fun island vibe on the steel drum. At dusk guests walked to the tented reception in the field overlooking the gorgeous view of meadows and the far away ocean. A fantastic three course dinner was served by Kitchen Chicks Catering, which included a sorbet course whimsically served in half a lemon peel. The early evening was gorgeous and Stef and Tom snuck away for a few minutes for some stunning photos in the fields. The whole day was captured beautifully by the wonderful and incredibly talented Emilie Sommer and her husband J.
Stef and Tom embraced every moment of their celebration and smiled all night long ….from the teary ceremony, to dancing under the dreamy birch canopy and sharing cheers and alot of love with all their family and friends and finally finishing off the night with a festive sparkler farewell.
