This double rainbow really happened – but – it did rain for about an hour on their wedding day. They say that’s good luck.
On Saturday, June 18th, the weather blessed Kim and Joe with a beautiful afternoon for their wedding on the coast of Maine. Though it had stormed all morning, Kim really wanted her ceremony outdoors, and Will Clayton flipped a secret switch that the Samoset has that turned on the sunshine and produced a glorious summer afternoon. Once everyone was inside for the dinner, he arranged for a brief lightning storm, and then finished the night with a rainbow that blazed just out the window from where people were dancing.
I don’t know why every wedding venue doesn’t have this kind of control over the weather, but the Samoset makes it work every time.
Here are a few shots of the groom, Joe.
The ceremony was held off the fifth tee, overlooking the breakwater and Penobscott Bay.
Here are a few of my favorite images of the bride and groom together:
Finally, here are some of the images from the terrific reception dinner Kim and Joe had for their families:
This was a beautiful and intimate wedding. Will Clayton and his crew at the Samoset did an amazing job allowing the day to be as relaxed and enjoyable as Kim and Joe wanted. Lucia and I would like to thank everyone in the Levesque and DeBilio families for making us feel so welcome at this special celebration. Thanks for looking – Will
