Wedding In Kennebunkport

What a beautiful place for a wedding . . . on the dock at the River Club in Kennebunkport.

What a perfect day for a wedding . . . the quintessential Maine early summer day.

On Friday afternoon, June 20th, our nephew, Christopher married the love of his life, Courtney.

The wedding was held on the deck of the historic Kennebunk River Club, which dates from 1889 and includes among its members President George H.W. and Barbara Bush. The River Club was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.

To make the occasion even more special, Chris was married by his mother, my sister-in-law, Carolyn , who is the pastor of Woodfords Congregational Church in Portland.

I loved the colors of the dresses . . . coral with a dash of navy blue.
And check out the groomsmen in their navy canvas Topsiders and coral lobster ties . . . perfect for a nautical wedding on the Kennebunk River.

The bride, who is from Colorado, is a semi-Olympic skier as well an Iraq War Veteran. Her dress had just a little navy blue down the back. Her Mom, who also wore navy blue, didn't look much older than the bride (maybe it's all that mountain air in Colorado)!

 The flower girls were adorable in chevron print orange, white and navy dresses.

Carolyn (the minister and groom's mom) did a beautiful job of personalizing the service. Since she was my "little sister" at Russell Sage College way back in 1967, I'm pretty proud of her, and of our enduring friendship.
Christopher's sisters, Kristen and Kim, read to the bride and groom from Dr. Seuss' classic, Oh, The Places You'll Go! while Chris' brother, Geoff, stood up for him as best man.

It was a beautiful day to be with family and to reconnect with old (old!) friends.

 I'm wishing so much joy for Chris and Courtney...
and a week's rest for Carolyn!
