Two Portland weddings in two weeks - I think I'm falling in love with a city.  (It's Portland).  We knew how much fun Laurie and Jake's wedding would be because we already filmed her sister's wedding and knew they had an amazing family (plus I've heard Laurie give a speech.)  We were honored to film the last Fortier sister to get married.

The day started with us catching up with Jake as he jumped on the golf course to play a round.  My favorite thing about groom prep is when the guys do something outside of the norm.  Plus anytime I can get an aerial view of a golf course I'm in.       

Groomsmen get ready a bit differently than brides. #latimerstudios

Laurie took a little bit more time to get ready (because, ya know, hair and makeup) so she got to hang our in her amazing suite at the Sable Oaks Marriot in South Portland and get ready with her best friends.

The rest of the day went perfectly with a ceremony at the amazing State Street Congregational Church and back to Sable Oaks for the reception.  Dancing, celebrating and fun!  It was a wedding that you'd write home about, but since no one writes letters anymore here's a video!

Other vendors who made this day amazing!
