Ollie is Leigh and Noah’s rescue pup. Ollie can be an anxious dog, so the pair thought she would stay in the cabin for their Maine camp wedding festivities. But Ollie wouldn’t stand for missing out on the fun. He came out to celebrate, hung out with the groomsmen, went to their first look, followed them for all of their portraits, group portraits, and cocktail hour.
Who could blame Ollie for making an appearance after seeing the gorgeous style, cozy cottages, lakeside views, and twinkle lights. It was a camp wedding none could forget — rustic meets glam meets completely them.
Our ceremony was on the lawn at Camp Mataponi overlooking Sebago Lake. We had a rough script for vows and flow, but left the majority of the ceremony in the very capable hands of family: Noah’s cousin Dr. Marco Vespignani and my uncle David Ray. We knew we wanted our ceremony to focus on family and include people who knew and loved us. We exchanged ideas, calls and emails, but left a great deal of it to them. Their exact words were a beautiful surprise.
