Angela and Nfamara (known as Fams to his friends and family) were married on October 22nd, with a ceremony at a private home in York, Maine, followed by a reception dinner at The Steakhouse in Wells, Maine.
These two had gone on vacation to Maine a few days after Christmas in 2014 and went for a walk on the Marginal Way. Usually, they would sit on the rocks and just talk and enjoy the views, but it was freezing cold, and Angela kept asking if they could leave. Fams’ response? NO. But it was worth it when she turned around to see him down on one knee!
Angela and Fams had decided not to do a first look before the ceremony. Fams thought they would do it, but the night before the wedding, she told him to sleep somewhere else and would not even let him text her good morning—no contact before the wedding. It was hard for Angela, because Fams is usually the one to calm her down when she’s nervous, but she said that she would never forget the look in his eyes when she arrived at the ceremony. He held her hand after she walked down the aisle to him, and you could see her completely calming down after that.
The house that they rented for the ceremony was absolutely stunning, and we were able to get some wonderful pictures with the bridal party in that amazing venue.
One of the other things I loved about this wedding was the little details in the way the bridal party took care of the bride and groom. Someone even thought to bring mints, because your mouth goes dry when you’re nervous!
Fams & Angela, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this amazing day in your lives. Congratulations to you both!
