Portland Maine

Mat and I recently traveled to Portland for a wedding and thought we may never get a chance to come back, so we stayed an extra day to “tour” around! The break from the Charleston heat was awesome….There are no words. 🙂 No humidity and 75 degrees? Charleston in my dreams…..

We had a great time and checked out some local spots, and ate at a few really awesome restaurants. One of my favorites was the Artemisia Cafe. It was so cute and quaint… We are not fans of touristy places and this was definitely not! We had lunch one day and brunch another. Both times it was excellent. We also enjoyed an organic pizza place called Flatbread. I’m sharing a few images from both.

Mat and I visited peaks island and we both loved the homes and architecture! It was so pretty and fun to just stroll around for a relaxed day….. We also went downtown portland to a few shops I personally wanted to visit…a hat shop and vintage clothing store.

I’m most excited to share the wedding we shot here. I just finished it up and will post it soon!!


I was in love with this hat!!! Just didn’t want to spend $200. 🙁
Apparently in the 60’s, bridesmaids wore dresses and matching veils. hah!
How cute is this little yellow house?
I was hoping to find a “juliet” street but no such luck. 
This little scene was a welcoming sight to me. Chairs under a tree and a cool breeze. It has “relaxing” all over it!Not sure what’s going on here. Maybe people don’t want you to know where you are going? LOL.
