Kennebunkport Maine was beautiful. We originally wanted a Bahama's beach wedding because we really wanted to get married on the beach and have an outdoor reception. We live in MA and traveling to Maine was perfect and believe it or not inexpensive-esp if you do a lot on your own and do mostly fake flowers. All my bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces were fake. Our day was one I will never forget and I think about daily. Everyone was great to work with and our guests said this was the best wedding they've ever been too.
Owen is so unbelievable, my cake was a beach theme with grass, starfish and sand. It was so realistic and I can't thank him enought. He also did a grooms cake for my husband. It was a blue red sox hat. The stitching on it was so cool. Worth the money!!!!!
Laurie was my wedding coordinator. She helped me with the final preparations and set up the wedding ceremony and reception. She did a fantastic job. She also got the trolley's for me. In town trolley in Kennebunkport did not remember talking to me or taking my credit card and Laurie had a hard time with them and she got the trolley from ogunquit. Thank god because I needed transportation to bring everyone back and forth to Goose Rocks beach because of limited partking. I highly recommend you to have her for your last final month of planning and help you with your rehearsal and wedding day. I didn't have to worry about one thing!
Myndi is one of a kind. If you want someone to capture your every moment and looks and designs of your day. She is the one. You will see pictures that you don't remember her being there to take. I'm not one for those photographers that make you pose for hours to take your pictures. Myndi captures the moment as it happens and all of her pictures on her website/blog show it. She is will cry and laugh with you on your day and she has an eye that you don't get from most photographers. Check out her site and you will see!!!!!
Brenda was wonderful. You wouldn't know this little shack with bird houses outside of it in Cape Neddick can make such a beautiful bouquet and centerpeice. She put my vision together exactly if not more than I expected. She also threw in 3 boutineers becuase she thought I should not go without. She is very creative!
We were able to set up our chairs on the beach and the weather was beautiful. We used the main entrance to the beach near the mart. We used the trolley service in agunquit to get everyone down there. There is limited partking and you need a permit. The trolley was just a great touch!
The venue we used was great. We rented out the entire resort with our guests. The owners are super sweet. They had just bought the resort a year prior and I beleive we were there first wedding outdoors under a tent. It was a little difficult because of this trying to get out some of the kinks. Just keep all your emails and notes and stay focused on what you plan just in case things change on you. If they request that you rent porta potties outside ask them to move them away from the tent. We smelled them later in the night. Other thank that my husband and I plan on staying at ocean woods on our anniversary every year. They are wonderful people!
