Atop the hill sits one of the most beautiful barns you’ve ever seen! Converted from an old horse barn into an elegant wedding barn with chic industrial elements, Beech Hill Barn stands out. Not only is the wedding barn beautifully crafted, the views from the oak grove ceremony spot are the best around. So, it’s no surprise Brianna and Seth chose this location to get married!Read More

When I’m hired as the professional officiant for a wedding professional, it’s a huge vote of confidence! Amanda from A Fogarty Photography had photographed a wedding I officiated, so she didn’t just know me as a friendor, she knew my work. Which made her wanting to work with me all the more meaningful!
I met Amanda back in 2014 at a marketing conference. She sat down next to me and we didn’t stop talking for two days. Her talent as a wedding photographer and business owner completely blew me away, but it was her kindness, warmth and loving spirit that drew me in.Read More
Maine has such a special place in my heart. I grew up in Southern New Hampshire, but every summer my family camped on Mount Desert Island off the coast of Maine. My parents fell in love with the rugged coastline and vowed to one day retire to Maine.
Their dream came true in 2006! That year also happened to be the same summer that my husband and I got married in the backyard of their Maine home.Read More

I've been officiating weddings since 2011 and never have I seen it rain so hard on a wedding day. This wasn't just a little rain, this was a 20 minute torrential downpour with thunder and lightning! Needless to say, this wasn't what Kristina and Alex had planned for their outdoor seaside wedding ceremony in Cape Neddick, Maine.Read More
One of the things I love about being a professional wedding officiant is being able to help my couples find ways to personalize and customize their wedding ceremony. For this wedding, Erika and David wanted to incorporate a modified version of a traditional tea ceremony. We scoured the internet and I researched the tradition so I could write a custom introduction to their modern tea ceremony.Read More
If you’re getting married in Maine in an outdoor ceremony, no matter what time of year, you’re going to need a Plan B in case of inclement weather.
