There are not enough wonderful words to describe Pascale and Kirk’s wedding day. The weather is an important factor and it was beyond perfect. Pascale got ready at her parents house and can I just say that the view was breath taking. The Wilson Memorial Chapel at Ocean Point in East Boothbay created a serene mood for their ceremony. The stone chapel is a beautiful, old landmark and the ocean was just a few feet away. After some photos were taken we all headed into Boothbay Harbor to the Chowder House where Pascale worked for several years. And just a couple of hours before sunset we went to the fabulous Botanical Gardens where a lobster bake was held, a live band, dancing and simply enjoying the company of their guests, some from as far away as Switzerland, which is where Pascale is from.
There is so much that goes into planning a wedding, up to a year or two for most couples. But when the big day arrives I can tell that both the bride and groom, as well as their parents and bridal party, are all in a bit of a daze. There is so much going on, schedules to meet, last minute this and that, I am sure by the end of the evening they look at each other and wonder how it all slipped by. Insert photographer. I know one of my biggest jobs is to document all the little moments so they can look back and remember how beautiful their day was and how every hour planning was worth it, times ten.
Pascale and Kirk, thank you so much for entrusting me with your day. I had such a great time! You both have a lovely family and I feel blessed to have been a part of one of the most important days of your lives. I hope you enjoy your preview. I cannot wait for you to see the rest!!
When Pascale showed me her wedding dress she also pointed to the dress next to it, which was her mother’s wedding dress. I nearly lost my breath and I just knew I had to photograph them together.
On the day of any brides wedding, there is an aura of magic floating around. I feel like every princess fairytale that was ever told comes to life, and it is most vivid on the face of the bride. Pascale, you are absolutely stunning!
Pascale and Kirk see each other for the first time on their wedding day.
Their sweet son, Jackson, brought them their rings. I might add that Jackson was a charming young man the whole day through!
Pascale said that one of the things she absolutely wanted to do after the ceremony was ring the church bell. And ring the bell they did, several times in fact!
Is this not the most adorable family!!
I just loved the ocean theme they had for the reception. All the little details were perfect!
Dear Pascale and Kirk,
may all the many years ahead of you be filled with passion, love, abundance in every way,
but most of all, may your days be filled with humor, even when difficulties arise.
Laughter will see you through.
Much love, Darlene
