It all started with a girl trying to catch the eye of a shy guy across the room. And that guy not believing that the pretty girl would be looking at him. But that’s how the story of Meredith and Mark got started. Mark would ask his friends, “Is that girl checking me out” and they would always tell him “No way!” Eventually, Mark got over his shyness and he and Meredith started down the path to their Happily Ever After.
Now that they live in Maine, Meredith & Mark wanted to plan a gorgeous seacoast-style wedding. They chose the beautiful First Parish Congregational Church in Saco, ME for their ceremony. The church has giant windows that let in the most gorgeous light and a huge vaulted ceiling. Mark started the processional by carrying in their baby girl, Blake, before awaiting his bride-to-be. And as Meredith was escorted by her father and throughout the ceremony, she was all smiles, knowing that she was finally marrying her soulmate! She could hardly contain herself. It was so cute to watch.
The entire wedding party and immediate family hopped onto a trolley after the ceremony to go to a nearby spot for group photos. To help Meredith & Mark get some time to themselves, we took them for a little walk down a path between huge, overarching trees and let them take everything in. It was great to see both of them relax and enjoy the feeling of being married. And despite being a little nervous, Mark pulled off a perfect dip with Meredith!
For the reception, they chose the charming Village By The Sea in Wells, ME, which also happened to be where they both got ready for their wedding day. Their first dance was so lovely and tender, followed by two of the most emotional toasts we’ve ever seen by the Maid of Honor and Best Man. Everyone had tears in their eyes by the end! With music provided by BTE Entertainment, the rest of the evening was one big celebration!
We’re so excited to share Meredith & Mark’s wedding photos and we wish them nothing but the very best as they and Blake continue their journey as an amazing family! Best wishes and thank you for making us a part of your special day!
