Sara and Zack contacted me as they were moving back to Chicago after completing graduate school in Ohio. They both majored in theatre.
We planned a beautiful wedding at the White Hall Inn in stunning Camden. The entire family took over the inn so that they could all be together for the entire weekend.
These two amazing people and actors had a vision. The first part of this vision was getting married at the Amphitheatre (perfect). The rest of this vision included to a rustic glam style, mixed with a meaningful and joyful weekend. Their love of adventure and travel is what led them to a destination wedding. And they nailed it!
When I learned of their engagement, I was struck by how unique it was to them as a couple. When Sara proposed, (yes, Sara) it was with a compass that had been engraved with Walt Whitman quotes. These encompassed (pun intended) their approach to partnership.
“Will you travel with me? Shall we stick by each other as long as we shall live?” I loved how this passion for travel brought them to Maine for their wedding.
The dress was also so very special. Sara found her dress at a second hand store. It was a designer dress that never got picked up for mass production – and it was a one of a kind. Oh, this dress! Beaded with gold threads, a stunning train – it was truly made for Sara.
The Canopy! Sara’s uncles, Marty and Henry, made a canopy that reflected both of their backgrounds, family histories woven together for the future.
The rehearsal dinner was at 16 Bayview on the roof deck where they watched the sun go down over the water. The ceremony had spits of rain that stopped no one!
The reception at the Whitehall was joyful, the beautiful food by Café Miranda was one of a kind, and the toasts that made everyone cry were just what these two wonderful people wanted.
