Maine Wedding Feast

The most important moment in a celebration begins with exploring how I can realize the bride and groom’s vision and bring all the details forward to that moment in time. It must appear effortless alongside elegance and style. Photo's courtesy of Michele Stapleton

Islesboro Wedding Tea Reception

It look 1200 fancy little sandwiches to feed this crowd at a wedding celebration on Islesboro this year. We used local crabmeat, free range chicken and country ham to make exquisite small garnished sandwiches. And there were cucumber and watercress sandwiches too for the traditionalists. We finished the party with little pastries. A good time was had by all!

Autumn Apple Orchard Wedding

Maine is full of exceptional wedding and party venues, with the Apple farm at Clark's Cove, Walpole being one of them. The Carriage House, mansion, lawns, orchards and rustic barn affords different venues...and a wonderful river view. Quintessentially Maine. Photos courtesy of Michele Stapleton

Summer Wedding at Maine Botanical Gardens

Whether you decide to marry in a Boothbay church or in the rose garden on site, and throw your reception on the event lawn or in the Bosarge Building, it's hard to top "The Gardens" for a memorable venue. Stunning in all seasons and with a knowledgeable staff to guide you, it's a lovely venue. Photos courtesy of Michele Stapleton
