John + Molly
REAL WEDDINGS-February 2013
Photographs by Geneve Hoffman
September 17 | Castine
Molly and John met on a blind date and knew, almost instantly, that they’d found the one. Molly grew up in Maine, and when planning their wedding the couple searched along the shoreline for the perfect place to marry. Castine had everything they were looking for. Friends and family descended upon the small town for an extended celebration, which began Thursday with a lobster bake, boat rides, and cocktails, and ended with a post-wedding brunch on Sunday.
“THE PROPRIETORS OF THE MANOR INN ARE WARM, CHARISMATIC PEOPLE, AND FANTASTIC CHEFS AND BARTENDERS. THEY WORKED TIRELESSLY TO ENTERTAIN AND PULL OFF A GREAT WEEKEND.”
