Fabulous, Elegantly Modern Wedding in Maine

Rick & Jon

October 1

Kennebunkport, Maine

The design goal was to create a masculine, tailored and elegant dinner party.  We achieved this by building a glass-walled tent with dark hardwood floors and selecting a blend of mirrored and draped tables.  The bar and chandelier were selected to anchor the room while the white flowers and candles softened the space.  Chef Cartwright prepared an outstanding five-course tasting menu with wine pairings.

Who are We:
Rick and Jon were introduced by a common friend while traveling on a business trip.  It didn’t take too long before they realized they had met their best friend and partner.  They live in Boston and have a summer home in Kennebunk.  After looking for a venue in Boston, they soon realized that nothing fit the style of the event they wanted to have and decided to plan a wedding in Kennebunkport where they could create a memorable party.  The couple was married in Massachusetts in a private ceremony at the Copley Plaza Hotel on 9/28 with a celebration of their marriage in Kennebunkport on 10/1.

What you can’t tell from looking at the pictures:
The overwhelming sense of love and joy that was truly palpable in that tent.  Our family and friends that traveled to be with us were thrilled to celebrate our marriage and everyone had a blast.  Even in a state where same-sex marriage is not yet recognized, all the suppliers we were fortunate to work with made us feel very special and unconditionally accepted.
