Maine Part 1

Well I was thinking I was going to write one post about my trip to Maine for my pals Sarah and Adam's wedding but I was looking through all the pictures and I decided it would probably be best to do three posts, one for each day I was there. I was honored when Sarah asked me to be in the wedding as a bridesmaid and I had so much fun traveling to Maine and meeting all the people I have heard so much about for so long.

Sarah and Adam are from the east coast but live out here in the west due to Adam's work. I was so lucky to meet them....they are my bestest friends!!! Unfortunately because of school obligations I was only able to be gone from Thursday until yesterday as I had school bright and early this morning. I am so tired but happy!!!

I left for Maine from Katrina's house in Portland OR at 4:30 am on Thursday morning. I had a layover in Chicago and then flew into Portland ME in the evening. Sarah was waiting and I was so happy to see her!!! We went for a quick dinner with the boys and then to her Mom's house where we all collapsed around 10pm. Her family had been working all evening on paper flowers for the wedding. I wish I would have taken a picture of her Mom's house because it was sooo old and neat... Sarah probably has a picture somewhere but I am too tired to search for it.

Friday morning Sarah and her Mom got up at 4 in the morning to start working on cupcakes and other projects. Good lord it felt like 1 in the morning to me so they kindly didn't wake me up until around 7. We had to get ready and get out to Bailey Island where the wedding was going to take place. There were so many things to set up and decorate. The delivery truck arrived around 9 with the tables, chairs, dishes, etc. Sarah's family is so awesome and between her Mom, Dad, brothers, brother's girlfriend and me we worked our butts off. Her brothers spent most of the day putting together all these paper lanterns and they looked so cool at the end.


Her brothers were hilarious putting them up. I was laughing so hard my face hurt. By the end they were wearing them!

Sarah and Adam got married at a cove and the reception was in a building nearby called library hall. It was so fun to see all the decorations that Sarah worked so hard on all year coming together so beautifully.

Later that night was the rehearsal dinner at Cook's Lobster House. I had never tried lobster so I was excited to give it a go. Turns out it is not my favorite food in the world but I did enjoy learning about the proper way to eat a lobster. We also had steamed clams (also yuck), corn on the cob, potatoes and a delicious Maine blueberry cake. Here's Sarah and Adam towards the end of the night.

That night and for the rest of my stay I was at a rental house with a bunch of people. I will post more about that tomorrow. Now I will probably be passing out shortly because I have so much homework to catch up on tomorrow. Ta-ta for now!
