midcoast meetup

Earlier this fall, the super talented and community-minded Maria Northcott (wedding officiant extraordinire at A Sweet Start) organized the first ever Midcoast Meetup.  Held at the lovely Darrows Barn in Damariscotta, this turned out to be a great evening of meeting and connecting with other local wedding vendors from midcoast Maine.
I enjoyed out-of-this-world pizza from the mobile wood-fired oven of friends at Harvest Moon Pizza while getting to know new faces.  It was so fun to meet people who had worked on different aspects of some of the same weddings I provided flowers for this past season. 
Maria invited me to bring flowers to set out on the tables during the event.  Since we had a milder than usual start to our fall, I still had lots of flowers to harvest from the garden in early October.  I took these first few photos of my arrangements and floral vignettes that evening under not-so-hot lighting.

Luckily for me Erin Little, the ever-creative and inspiring photographer at a love supreme photography, was also there capturing the evening with her camera.  All of the following photos are here courtesy of Erin.

 Many, many thanks to Maria for pouring her love of people, community, and weddings into one awesome event!  It was great to connect with other local wedding vendors in a laid-back atmosphere; I look forward to continuing to cross paths with these folks and their talents in the years ahead!


  1. is that scented geranium (skeleton) in the 2nd to last photo, kimbo? if so, who did you buy the seeds from?

  2. hey Thanh Thanh! It is P. radens 'Dr. Livingston,' which I guess is sometimes called skeleton geranium. I didn't start it from seed but got some plants a couple of falls ago from Beau Chemin Farm in Waldoboro. If you make it back up to Maine sometime, you'd be more than welcome to take some cuttings from my plants!
