This wedding was such a fun and unique one! Sergei and Shayna wed on June 14th, and their wedding day started in the beautiful city of Portland, Maine. Shayna, her bridesmaids, and her mother got ready at a friends house right in downtown Portland. Shayna’s mother helped her into her wedding dress, and this dress was a special one as Shayna’s mom was the one who made it! Once all the ladies were ready, everyone headed to Portland’s Old Port to the Portland Schooner Company. Forty of Shayna & Sergei’s nearest and dearest all boarded the schooner for a special sail on the “Bagheera”. Once the sails were raised and the boat was sailing, it was time for Shayna and Sergei to wed while surrounded by friends, family, the ocean, a couple of seals, and other fellow boaters. They had a sweet and simple ceremony, sealed it with a kiss and it was time to celebrate with champagne for the rest of the sail. What a gorgeous way to have your wedding ceremony! After the beautiful sailboat ride came to an end, we took a great group photo of everyone on the boat, and then it was time to head back to celebrate with even more friends and family! Where were we off to? Their home in Bridgton, Maine that was still being built right on Woods Pond. Before Shayna & Sergei went to their reception in their “to be” home, they hopped on a pontoon boat for a little ride around Woods Ponds. My oh, my was it pretty. Then it was time to celebrate with friends and family in their home “to be” (that they are building themselves)! What a special and beautiful day you had Shayna & Sergei, and thank you for choosing me to capture it! This is one I will never forget!
