Loving all the vibrant colors and details that Marina DeMarco, head of our little sister wedding company Lumina Weddings, captured of Rita & Girish´s East meets West wedding day in rural Maine.
Rita & Girish walked us through all the ritual moments of their Hindu ceremony...The elaborate Vara Agamana (welcoming of the groom), the Shubha Mahurtha (Auspicious Moment) when the ceremonial curtain is lifted between bride and groom, and all the other elaborate and decorative moments. Marina was fascinated by the entire day. They ended the day in traditional Western wedding garb and danced the night away under starlit (and firework lit!) skies. Beautiful.
Congrats Rita & Girish!

Kristin and Joe had a pretty Maine Lakes wedding day with our Lumina Weddings head photographer Marina DeMarco. That yellow palette and details just make me smile! The day started and ended at the Byrne family home in beautiful Sidney Maine. We have been photographing the lovely Byrne family gatherings and milestones for many years now...so happy for the newest couple Kristin & Joe!

Renee & Troy had such a fun day. I really had fun photographing this couple...from the vibrant coral palette, to the blue sky Maine day on York Harbor, to the excited wedding entourage, to dancing on the dock, to stealing boats, to taking over the golf course, to wading through the marsh, to wearing crowns...they did it all! They both kept everyone laughing all day. They made it all look and feel so easy and relaxing...even though I know Renee and her mom did lots of work to pull it all off. Congrats to Renee & Troy!!
A couple quick details...will add the rest asap...

Love the beautiful light by the seaside in this private home wedding. We headed to Fort Foster, which is right down the street from the wedding, and my house, for some fun portraits. Congrats Kate & David! Gorgeous second shooting by Marina DeMarco.

Loved the uber romantic palette and details of Jessica & Ben´s wedding in historic Portsmouth, NH. They really paid attention to setting for each phase of the day--they even rented Wentworth Gardner Tobias Lear mansion for the getting ready session. The floral design by Jardiniere captivated us too--the frilly petals and beautiful arrangements. But romance aside...this wedding party had everyone cracking up all day--so fun. It was a photographers dream wedding--gorgeousness everywhere you looked and a super fun, laid back couple. Also--the band Ripcord rocked it! Jessica blew everyone away with her Pat Benatar impression too...and Ben moves like Mick Jagger all night. Congrats you two!!

Ok...usually I edit blog posts down to 5-10...but I´ve been photographing this family for about 6 years now, and the fun we had on this shoot is really what my style is all about. First off, the tween braces is a part of Matis´s history--and rather than wait til he looks "perfect"--we documented it as a milestone instead. Love that! Also, I like the fun and sometimes goofy "storytelling" images, mixed in with portraits. So I thought I´d just show the whole story. Thanks guys as always for being my muses. Happy Summer!! PS...love those green braces.
