We have been waiting to share this wedding on the blog & website for a while now, but Lisa and Andrea have been enjoying the adventures of life such as honeymoon, a big move to Maine, and then oh yeah that little thing called the Bomb Cyclone! We finally had the opportunity to reconnect to recap the weekend.

This wedding was spectacular on so many levels, but the deep personal connection between the couple and their guests was oh so obvious! We will never tire of a good laid back, authentic wedding that truly reflects the couple and their union. These two joyful ladies created a warm and welcoming weekend escape that their family and friends won't soon forget. They were the first couple to sign their marriage license during the ceremony, and the setup was absolute perfection! Take a look at some snapshots as seen through the eyes of Channing Johnson; their photographer...and check out the full album on our site here! 

Read on for some thoughts from Lisa & Andrea. 

"We received endless compliments from our guests about the venue. From the onsite rehearsal dinner cookout through the reception, people were at ease and in awe of the space. It makes a huge difference knowing you don't have to set up and take down everything in one day and I think our guests picked up that we were relaxed and stress-free because of that. I could go on and on." 

"You, Mary and Ed were incredibly supportive throughout he entire process. I never felt bad reaching out or that I was inconveniencing you in any way, which is important when planning a wedding remotely."

"Having access to the venue was crucial and we loved having the unique experience of seeing The Preserve evolve. I know it personally made me feel more connected to the property."
