Emily and Nick had the most interesting wedding of the year, and I’m certain they didn’t want that title!
After postponing their summer wedding till November because of Covid, they were hesitant to move their date again this fall. They cut their guest list from 175 down to 100, but as the wedding approached, restrictions in Maine allowed only 50 guests at a reception (regardless of the size of the venue).
And here’s where it gets interesting. Instead of postponing again, or halving their guest list, Nick and Emily (and their planner Fausto Pifferrer from Blue Elephant Events and Catering) opted to have TWO wedding receptions – an afternoon reception with mostly family, and an evening reception filled with friends.
Just writing that sounds like a long day. They also had a full mass at the beautiful Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, and in between the two receptions, they went adventuring around downtown with Lucia and I looking for fun spots for couple’s portraits.
And as a quick shout to anyone planning a wedding in Maine, Ocean Gateway has the best view of Casco Bay there is.
