Introducing Katie and Colby!

Posted: March 29, 2019

From Katie:

"It is hard to put into words how incredibly grateful and honored we are feeling after being chosen as the winners of the 2019 Real Maine Wedding of the Year Contest.

The last few months have been a whirlwind of emotion. From getting engaged to the absolute love of my life, to entering this contest, to feeling an overwhelming amount of love and support from family and friends (and even people we have never met). Winning this contest, however, was the cherry on top.

We gathered with family and friends at the Freeport Wedding show, feeling nervous, thankful, and eager to see what this next chapter would hold for us. When Reuben announced that Colby and I were chosen to be the winners, it was like time stood still for a moment. This was our dream and it was actually coming true.

After the excitement of the big announcement, we met with Christine, Reuben, Fausto, Joan and Kivalo Photography. We instantly felt like we had a connection with all of them as we discussed the next steps in this adventure. Plus, as a bonus, they all seemed to have the same vision as us for what our wedding would look like. They made us feel completely at home with them, like we were now a part of their family.

This opportunity means more to us than we will ever be able to explain. We are endlessly grateful for Real Maine Weddings for giving us the opportunity to have our dream wedding this year. To be able to work with such an incredibly talented group of vendors, vendors we only dreamt of working with when we first got engaged, is such a humbling feeling.

We are so ready to start this journey and beyond excited to be able to share it with you all!"
