Jamey & Tom | A Second Chance at Love

By | Videos, Weddings | No Comments

Jamey & Tom reached out to us from Illinois while they were on the hunt for their perfect elopement location. I immediately fell in love with Jamey’s excitement, Tom’s kind spirit, and their combined positive energy and obvious love for one another.

I’m not much of a writer, so here is Jamey’s experience in her own words:

“Has a videographer ever been the starting point for planning a wedding including a location? Well, Nora was for us. We’re from Illinois and we eloped. I saw one video of Nora’s by chance in a national search for where to elope. I cried. I watched it again and cried. I even showed my fiancée and he cried. She captured the feel of the couple and the moment. She told the real story. That’s so much harder to do. We loved her already and we weren’t disappointed. She is absolutely 100% AMAZING on every level. She is so wonderful to know and work with and she is a true artist of love and of character. And she was like our compass through this process. She went above and beyond and we both said of Nora at different moments (me through emails when I was worried about making a mess of things trying to plan from afar) and him the day of the wedding when she walked in the door and told him in her way “to just let it all go and start to have fun and enjoy it all” that Nora somehow through her presence (real and digital) allowed us to relax and remember what really matters at critical moments. What a bonus! Who couldn’t use that through this process?? Her cup of talents overfloweth! Don’t let her get away! We’ve already gotten our sneak peak video and watched it over and over. It really captures and brings back that amazing day. My husband who doesn’t exactly wear his heart on his sleeve at work loves that little video so much that he has shown it to everyone he knows and some he doesn’t. It just cracks me up. If you knew him, you would know that is the highest form of praise.”

Thank you Jamey & Tom for letting us be a part of such an intimate, loving, and warm celebration! We can’t wait to celebrate with you again on your 1-year anniversary!

Kaela & Ryan | An Intimate Maine Elopement

The intimate Maine elopement of Kaela & Ryan

How did you two meet?
Ryan saw me at the gym and just had to meet me so he asked his brother who I was, found me on Facebook and messaged me!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
We love Wells! We’ve been vacationing there for the past four years together and I have vacationed there my whole life. We went to Laudholm one weekend in January to check it out before our weekend getaway in Portland and then Ryan proposed! After that we knew we wanted to get married there! We love that we can come back to the spot where those two special moments in our life happened.

Were there any happy surprises that happened?
Ryan surprised me with beautiful diamond earrings, my dad brought me some pretty peonies and my mom made me “something blue” out of an old dress we both wore with my new initials and some pendants from my childhood.

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others?
Eating ice cream and our vows. Sorry! Can’t pick just one!

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Eat a lot more ice cream! We are picking up a new hobby! We’re going to start hiking new trails around us each weekend to spend some quality time together unplugged!
