From L. Hewitt Photography...There's something charming and lovely about Maine, and I reflect on their rehearsal sail around Wiscasset now. The lapping waters, seafood that is practically pulled right out of the water in front of you, the setting sun and gentle breeze. It's easy to see how Christina and Nishant fell in love there, and why they decided to celebrate their wedding in Maine.

These two have one of my favorite proposal stories ever.

Nishant surprised Christina with an unexpected treasure hunt. The search started at 5:30 am in New York City with friends and family, taking her to a weekend bag, a plane ticket and bridal magazines to read on her flight.

After finding a tiara, a gorgeous dress and shoes, and more clues from friends, she ended up at the Light house in Portland, Maine, where a dapper, suited Nishant waited with a photographer a garlanded setup, and a proposal.

Nishant and Christina wed on a beautiful summer day in Maine against the backdrop of the breathtaking lavender farm, Marianmade Farm, near Historic Wiscasset.

Christina is lovely and sweet; Nishant is dapper and charming. They brought the grace and chic of New York hosts and were a joy to watch as they demonstrated their love in stories about each other, and surprises for one another throughout the day. And the wedding was full of surprises; a surprise videographer, an Indian dance flashmob, gifts from Nishant to Christina. The bride and groom signs on the back of their chairs were surprises to each other, which kept Kate Martin, the coodinator on her toes. And to cap it off, there was a lovely fireworks display for their guests.

DIY details included toffee favors, programs, tossing petal bags, gold animals on tables and welcome bags.

From The Bride...For our wedding, Nishant and I wanted to create an elegant evening, but with a fun and relaxed atmosphere, not stuffy. Whimsical with a lot of soft colors. Set in a barn, but not rustic. Light, airy and most importantly, just a story of two people who fell in love.
