On a fabulous fall day in Maine, under a beautiful, towering tree at Laudholm Farm, Rory and Jess said “I do”.
At this lovely ceremony, I was extremely lucky to witness some of the best wedding vows ever spoken:
“I am pretty sure I have loved you since the first time I saw you smile. I think my heart knew from that point that you were the one, and my brain just needed to play catch-up for the next ten years.
It’s not just your smile I love – but why you smile and who you are.
I love the way you smile when you are being silly. And I promise to always be silly with you.
I love the way you smile when you’re with your family. And I promise to always put family first.
I love the way you smile when you have done something for the first time. And I promise to always push you to try new things.
I love the way you smile when you are telling me about a good day at work. And I promise to always support you in whatever you do.
I love the way you smile when you are feeling naughty. And I promise to always be naughty with you.
I love the way you smile when you say ‘I love you’. And I promise to say “I love you” every chance I get.
Baby, I loved the way you smiled when you said ‘yes’. And I promise to spend the rest of my life celebrating that commitment with you.” – Rory to Jess
Creative candlelight, decorative fruit and muted colors gave way to the bride’s vision of a Dutch still life painting. Well thought-out textures. Gold metals. Elegant comfort food. Extraordinary print pieces. Cozy details. Music that never stopped.
The day was about celebrating with family and friends. It was warm, personal and stunningly beautiful. That is what it is all about.
