From Marc Andreo... Sometimes the entire wedding day can go by like a dream of a feast, with course after course besting the last, until all you are left with is laughter, mirth and wide-eyed joy. This was the experience of Courtney and Michael's wedding day, where gaiety and autumn swagger paired up to provide that perfect blend of masculine and feminine, lush and autumnal, and continual harmony - all of which the best weddings seem to have. Here tucked in the dense forestry just miles below Portland, Maine, is the Hidden Pond Luxury Resort, where this magical wedding unraveled amongst a tightly knit gathering of Courtney and Michael's closest family and friends.

With such adornments as vintage Czech crystal Schreiner earrings by M.Flynn and a truly stunning Anne Barge gown, Courtney looked the epitome of bridal elegance on her wedding day. Michael could hardly contain his pride and joy upon seeing her for a first look in the beautiful garden courtyard at Hidden Pond Resort. Dressed in classic Joseph Abboud attire, Michael was suave and poised going into the ceremony, ready to exchange vows with the love of his life.

The ceremony proved to be stunning itself as it was decorated by the Creative Director of the much-loved classic Boston florist, Winston Flowers. Courtney, who works as an Event Designer herself at the renowned Rafanelli Events, contributed to the elegant event design and decor for both ceremony and reception.

All in all, it was a magical wedding day experience that was unique in it's warmth, elegance and beauty.
