I’m still on a high after returning from the most magical wedding weekend. My dear friend Alyssa married the love of her life, Carlton, at Carlton’s family’s home in Damariscotta, Maine. Carlton is the brother of Alyssa’s best friend, Chessie, so we also got the unique chance to witness our two close friends officially become sisters.
It’s hard to pick a favorite moment from the weekend. We cried, we laughed, we danced, and we ate so much lobster. And pizza. And oysters. And pie.
When the summer solstice sun finally set and the night air grew a little chillier, Alyssa put on the best cream-colored leather jacket over her wedding dress (as only she could do) and beamed at her new husband on the dance floor. I’ve never seen my friend look happier or more beautiful. It was so, so good.
