Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate this special day with us. We had so much fun and feel so loved by all of you!

Danny and I have been going up to Newry, ME for years. One trip up, we went to North Peak at Sunday River and saw a wedding being set up. The setting was so beautiful that we decided then and there that when we got married, we would have our reception at the top of the mountain…  We went with a rustic/woodsy theme. We had lots of wood slices, burlap and mason jars that decorated the tables. Our cake was made to look like a birch tree with our initials carved into it.”

I’m an oncology nurse at Mass General Hospital. Getting dressed up and having makeup on is a rare thing considering I spend most of my time in scrubs. Colleen


Danny and the groomsmen wore charcoal grey suits from Jos. A. Bank. The ties were yellow and cobalt blue plaid from Brooks Brothers. All the boys had special lapel pins to match their personalities. Colleen


I can’t say enough about the first look with Focus Photography. I was so nervous waiting in the grass for Danny to tap me on the shoulder. It was such an incredible feeling to see my soon to be husband standing there looking so handsome. I started crying a little bit because I was so excited and overcome with emotion. I would absolutely recommend doing a first glance to any other bride and groom Colleen


We did pictures out on the terrace behind the Grand Summit Hotel. It was kind of hot and sunny but a beautiful spot for group pictures. Colleen


Danny and I don’t really love having our picture taken. We were both incredibly nervous going into taking our romantic session photos but after the first few clicks of the camera, we loosened up a bit and started to enjoy ourselves. Pictures on the wedding day were so much easier and we knew exactly what to expect. I don’t think either of us would ever consider a career in modeling but we are definitely more comfortable in front of a camera now! Colleen

We got married on the Artist’s Covered Bridge in Newry, ME. Danny and I have seen other weddings on this bridge and knew that we had to get married there. The weather was perfect and the river looked and sounded beautiful. Colleen


I was not nervous at all walking down the aisle. I had already seen Danny and our families for pictures prior to the ceremony so it really took the pressure off. I was so excited just to get down the aisle to marry Danny! I could tell that my dad was a little nervous because we almost forget to give each other a hug at the end of the aisle. Colleen


It was so exciting seeing all of our family and friends waiting on the bridge for the ceremony to start. I had already seen Colleen so I wasn’t nervous at all. Dan


Our dog Lucy walked down the aisle with our friend Justin. My brother Pat read a poem titled “how falling in love is like owning a dog”. I loved this poem and really felt like it was perfect for having a dog in the wedding. Colleen


Danny and I met 6 years ago at the Purple Shamrock in Boston. I was having drinks with my BFF and maid of honor, Laura, and Danny was out with some Coast Guard buddies. Really long story short, a few drinks led to a long distance relationship and now a happy marriage. Colleen

Maybe it wanted to go to the summit…


Danny and I have been going up to Newry, ME for years. One trip up, we went to North Peak at Sunday River and saw a wedding being set up. The setting was so beautiful that we decided then and there that when we got married, we would have our reception at the top of the mountain. We could not have asked for more perfect weather to highlight the gorgeous views from the top of North Peak. It was so fun making our grand entrance by riding up on the chair lift! Colleen


Danny and I aren’t the best dancers so we were a little nervous to dance in front of everyone. My dad and I danced to my parents wedding song. My dad and I shared a very special moment during this dance together. Danny and his mom busted out some moves for their dance together. It was fun to watch. Colleen

One of the best moments of the wedding was when the Time Pilots had Danny and I play with them. Danny got on the microphone while I rocked out with the guitar. I’m really hoping the speaker for the guitar wasn’t on! Colleen

All of our guests and family members loved Will and Lucia of Focus Photography. They were so fun and kept everyone laughing during the group photos. Will had some great photo ideas and Lucia really kept the day moving. Colleen
