The Samoset Wedding of Amy and Ryan

The Samoset Wedding of Amy and Ryan

Wedding rings on invitation at the Samoset

Will:Tell me a little about your dress and accessories.  By the way, I loved the wooden hangers you had made with your wedding date on them.

Amy: My dress was a lace, ivory & champagne Oleg Cassini from David’s Bridal and I wore navy blue heels to match my bridesmaids dresses. My Veil was a gift from Ryan’s mother and was a beautiful white lace with champagne beading.


Will: The navy heels were a good touch, you looked great.  Who did your hair – it looked beautiful?

Amy: Thank you! My hair was done by Mallory King, co-owner of Elizabeth’s Cuts & Styles in Rockport, Maine.

 Will:Did you wear any special jewelry?

Amy I did! My earrings were a 5th anniversary present from Ryan and they were these beautiful White pearls. I wore a Kate Spade gold “bride” bangle bracelet that was a gift from my Maid of Honor and best friend Allie. My engagement ring is a stellar white gold diamond sculptural ring, and my wedding band was from GM Pollack & Sons and is a white gold curved diamond band.


 Will: Ryan wore his uniform and a lot of fancy ribbons.

Amy:Yes, Ryan is in the US Army so he wore his US Army Class A dress blues and looked so handsome in them. His wedding ring was also something very special because it was a tungsten carbide ring handmade by his brother-in-law Mike.

Will: Talk a little about yourselves, what do you do, and how did you meet?

Amy: I work in hotel revenue management and Ryan is an EMT and is in the US Army. We have been together for about eight and a half years and first met when we worked at the same grocery store in High School!

Will: And when Ryan asked you to marry him, how did the proposal go?

Amy: We spent the Fourth of July with our family watching fireworks, and spent the evening staring up at the stars on the beach. Which happened to be a closed National Park. It was so romantic with the stars and the water and Ryan surprised me and got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him. Of course I said yes! While we were leaving, Ryan backed up into a ditch and we were stuck there until 2am when the local sheriff and tow truck came to help. Needless to say it was a story we will never forget.

Will: So, tell me about the photography.   A lot of people tell me they think the couples Lucia and I work with must all love being photographed because they seem relaxed in the images.  Did the romantic session help?

Amy: It felt very awkward initially (at the romantic session) because like most people we are not really in front of the camera that often. But on our wedding day it was a breeze. We just had a lot of fun having our pictures taken and Focus Photography gave us very smooth and detailed directions that helped us to feel comfortable.
