Wow! Last Saturday we shot one of the most regal and elegant weddings I’ve seen in a long time, in downtown Portland, at the Eastland Park Hotel. Though it was a rainy day in Maine, the Eastland offered us up their entire hotel to work within, and I don’t think anyone cared what the weather was doing outside.
Let me set the scene – Angela and her girls got ready at the Eastland, the ceremony was at the Cathedral in Portland (!), and the reception was in the Eastland’s ballroom. Sure, it poured, but I could work with a bride in the Eastland Park for days and never run out of places to shoot. Thank you Jasmine and the whole Eastland staff for giving us the run of the joint!

And back at the Eastland Park Ballroom:
Wow! This wedding had it all – ballroom dancing, two different gowns, a cathedral length veil, incredible elegance. The Eastland was sensationally decorated for this wedding.
Okay, here are some people you should know:
Eastland Staff: Jasmine Steward, Coordinator Extraordinaire, and Chef Jeff, who outdid himself!
Flowers: Dodge the Florist
Cake: New England Couture Cakes
Gowns: Andreas Bridal
DJ: Greg Powers
Photography: the complete Focus Photography entourage (myself, Chet, and Amanda shooting, with Lucia directing)
Thanks for looking – Will.
