eric and cassie

It is rare that I work with only the groom during the wedding planning process, but it does happen from time to time.  This was one of those times :).  Eric called me just a few weeks before their wedding and we talked about their wedding that they were going to do at The Cove at Bluefin Bay Resort in Tofte, and there were only going to be four guests.  FOUR!  That’s correct!  The two of them plus their parents… six people in total.  Not to mention that the wedding was going to be on a Thursday, which is so insanely awesome.

It seems like every time that I am at Bluefin, it is either foggy, windy, or rainy… but let me confirm that combination makes for the most incredible backdrop.  I have come to love the waves crashing in during the wedding ceremony, paired with the foggy backdrop.  It is absolutely dreamy.

The few hours that I spend with Eric and Cassie, and their families, were so relaxed compared to a regular wedding.  It was just two families enjoyed each others company, talking and laughing, and most importantly, becoming one family.  By the way they were around each other, you would think that they have been one big family for years!

Eric looked awesome in his Marine’s uniform, and Cassie looked even better in her lace wedding gown {complete with leggings underneath} and an heirloom shawl to help keep warm.  I could tell when I was photographing them, that they have a lot of fun together.  The area around us was filled with laughter… plus they laughed at my horrible jokes, which you know, makes them pretty cool in my eyes. 😉

Thank you Eric and Cassie for having me photograph your wedding, you two are the best!
