Sasha & Sam-August 28, 2010

What an amazing couple!  What an amazing day!  What a pleasure to help such a sincere and down-to-earth pair celebrate one of the most important days of their lives.  They were a treat to work with, and we couldn't be more genuine when we say they deserve all the happiness that life has to offer!

Together Sasha & Sam own Salty Dog Farm, an organic vegetable farm in Milbridge, ME.  As you may have guessed by their chosen life's work, they are dedicated to doing everything they can to preserve the environment.  Even though they wanted to celebrate their marriage in a big way, they wanted everything about it to reflect their commitment, and ultimately their personalities.  sweetest thing was thrilled to help them realize their vision!  The setting; the beautiful Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor, Maine.  The vibe: fun elegance.

The tables were draped in antique lace and the centerpieces included driftwood, dahlias placed individually in small antique bottles, and white votive candles.  We loved shopping for all those sweet, little antique bottles and jars, combing the beaches of Maine for beautiful driftwood, and were absolutely amazed by the shock of colorful dahlias we retrieved from Endless Summer Garden in Camden, ME.  We combed the state for the most amazing vendors and connected Sasha & Sam with Sperry tents, whose luxurious tents are made from recycled sails, and in which were hung the most beautiful vintage-inspired chandeliers.  We also created gift bags for all of their guests; a beautiful recycled-sail Seabag made right here in Maine and crammed with Maine goodies like gourmet chocolates from Black Dinah Chocolatiers, Mad Gabs lip balm, Tom's of Maine toothpaste, artist Rachael Anderson's stunning photo postcards, and delicious lobster gummi candies.

The bride and groom said their I-do's overlooking the harbor and then it was time to party!  Jerks of Grass bluegrass band played the cocktail hour, and Slavic Soul Party made an incredible entrance and led the bride and groom to the dance floor.  We all know what happened next; they danced all night and lived happily ever after.

Congratulations Sasha & Sam!  Thank you for letting us be a part of your amazing celebration!
