Chris & Alexa | Old Orchard Beach, ME Wedding

CouplesAmanda Mohinani4 Comments

Alexa was calm and collected. Calmer than most brides when their big day arrives. But she's had experience, a dress rehearsal of sorts - her and Chris had an official ceremony last September with some of their close friends and family. This was their Fourth of July destination wedding; the party they had been planning for over a year. Surrounded by her family and close friends, Alexa quietly and simply did her own hair, donned her mother's wedding dress, and prepared to marry her husband - one more time. Chris joked that this was their third wedding - a fake wedding as an April Fools day joke in 2012, their official ceremony in September, and now this. He was experienced, calm, and ready. Ready to be done with the planning of weddings, but wanting to drink in every moment. Surrounded by his family and close friends, Chris quietly tied his bow-tie, practiced his vows and prepared to marry his wife - one more time.

 

Chris and Alexa's day was full of rich tradition; and I love that Alexa chose to use her mother's wedding dress!

Since their wedding was held on the beach, they offered flip-flops to each guest as a favor.

Alexa chose blue and yellow for their beautiful beach wedding, and I adored the flowers of the bouquets!

Ever the entrepreneur, Alexa did her own hair and make-up - without even being nervous. :)

Alexa's smile radiated as she put on her dress, and she didn't stop smiling for the rest of the day. :)

The guys got ready at a hotel not far from the beach, and had some fun figuring out how to tie their bow-ties.

Chris looked incredibly dapper in his suspenders and blue jacket - perfect for their nautical themed wedding.

Alexa's dad arrived on the scene just in time to tie Chris's tie for him - saving the day and becoming a hero. :)

After the woods, we wandered down to the beach - literally just across the road - for some more photos.
