Yesterday I shot a beautiful wedding in Brunswick & Falmouth. The weather was perfect, and I started in Falmouth Foreside with Courtney as she got ready at her parents’ house with her sister, the maid of honor. She was treated to a surprise when her father showed up in a 1941 antique “Woody” that was to be theirs for the day’s festivities.
Courtney arrived at St. John the Baptist in Brunswick, where Tony, a Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy, was waiting in his dress whites.
After a moving ceremony, the two headed back down towards Falmouth for photos and to begin the reception. The antique auto experienced engine trouble on Rt. 1, but disaster was averted as the good people of Freeport came out of the woodwork and lent a hand to the cause. Before long, the bride and groom were enjoying cocktails with their nearest and dearest before beginning their reception on the stunning grounds of the Portland Country Club as the sun dipped low in the sky. Among the highlights were an incredible flash mob that Courtney’s friends and family had arranged. After the toasts, about 30 of the guests solemnly made their way to the dancefloor and busted out the ENTIRE dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video. Courtney, a diehard M.J. fan, couldn’t believe it.
The couple danced the night away before being given a sparkler send-off and escaping in the revived Woody into the night.
Congratulations Courtney & Tony!
