Abby and Martin | Ocean Gateway | August 5, 2017

The moment before Abby walked down the aisle, she turned to look at her dad and said, “This is the best moment of my life.” Even as I write it now, it gives me tingles throughout. I love hearing that and I hope that every bride feels just as joyful before marrying their fiance.


Abby and Martin's wedding was filled with classic design. Their color palette was representative of Maine’s natural beauty and hydrangeas, which adorn so many New England floral gardens, filled the floral arrangements. They had a beautiful ceremony at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and carried on the fun of the evening at The Ocean Gateway. The views from the Ocean Gateway are spectacular and one reason I love this spot in particular is because if you have guests visiting, it's a great spot for them to enjoy what Portland has to offer.


In the evening, Abby’s Dad explained during his toast that life will get even better as love fills her heart each day. Once again, I’m left with tingles. Martin's dad was his best man, which shared so much about their relationship. This family knows the value of love and it’s clear how much it fills all of their hearts. It was such a pleasure to help them on their day and work with them leading up to it as well.
