When I receive submissions, I tend to go straight for the pictures. When I got this submission from Kim Chapman in Maine, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Audrey Hepburn as I looked as through the album. The shots of Monica touching up her hair and make-up looked like old backstage shots of Audrey and Hubert de Givenchy preparing for another infamous movie.
From the photographer: A little Hollywood glam in Rockland, Maine was a great way to end my 2012 wedding season! I played up the black and white to really “throw back” the look which is how I saw it! Monica and Carl were the coolest, sweetest couple…and I LOVE their style. Monica’s “Audrey Hepburn” like dress was made by her mother! I felt like I was watching an old Hollywood movie set as I entered the girls dressing room. Her “french twist” hair really completed her look. Now you can’t have a wedding in Maine without a little snowfall! Right on cue just in time for our couple photos, the snow fell lightly. The couple braved the cold for some “snow in the dark” shots and we are all convinced it was pretty worth it!
From the bride: Carl and I met through our very good friend, Joe, who we asked to marry us- he was our officiant! Carl proposed to me on our third anniversary at the family-friend owned cabin in Owl’s Head where we have spent (and will spend) all of our anniversaries. Planning this wedding was a joy for us and enjoyed every minute of it. We just followed our instincts and style and it all came together beautifully! How perfect!
