A Spring Nonantum Wedding of M and W

A Spring Nonantum Wedding of M and W

wedding photography at Nonantum lighthouse in southern maine

There’s nothing more exciting than a spring wedding, especially for wedding photographers! After the winter we’re always thrilled to be able to work in the sunshine again. This is Will from Focus Photography – and it’s April of 2022, many years after this wedding was shot, but I just had my first wedding of this year, and I feel the same way every year.

I’m revisiting these fabulous images and this post which has been posted here since this wedding to remove the couples’ names so they can be a little less internet-famous! When you see how pretty the bride is, you’ll get it. M (that’s what we’ll call her from this point on) is gorgeous, and husband (we’ll call him W from now on) is a lucky man.

Here are a few dozen of my favorite images from this lovely and intimate wedding. Thanks for looking – Will

“ The second I saw M I could not take my eyes off hers. She looked so incredible in her dress. I couldnt stop thinking about how much I love her and want to spend the rest of my life with her.  – W

 

“ My mom is somewhat superstitious and she swears by the white bird landing on the lighthouse while we were reciting our vows. She thinks that this the sign of a blessing. We of course, completely agree. – M

We had a beautiful reception in the same place as our ceremony- the Nonantum and couldn’t be happier with our choice. It was in the new banquet room with a fireplace overlooking the water.

Our first dance was to Desiree’s “Im kissing you” song which we both like. After dinner everyone danced to a couple of CDs that my Mom brought all the way from Russia for us.

My most memorable moment during the reception was the perfect dip that W bestowed on me at the end of our first dance. – M
