A Neighborhood Wedding Celebration

Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue

We are blessed… for so many reasons. One of the things that we cherish most about our work here at French’s Point is that our celebrations are all about family & milestone moments. Every wedding & gathering we host here is a gift; one we give and one we receive back twice again. We know that not everyone is so privileged with work that is so happy. Every once in a while, we get to host a wedding that has a personal connection to us directly.

In June, we celebrated Marion & Alex, alongside their family and friends. Marion was part of the tribe of children who grew up here with me on Hersey Retreat Road. Her cottage was two doors down from my own. The path between our homes was well-beaten as our raggle-taggle crew roamed freely between homes all summer. Marion is the youngest of the four siblings in her family. Her sister and I played and competed in the Miss Sandy Point Competition, one younger brother was close to my younger brother and her other older brother and I were friends and sweethearts for a summer. Her parents were always kind enough to fold me into their activities at nearby Fort Knox, antique shopping, my first trip to Moody’s Diner & adventures aboard their sail boat. Her father is a doctor who mended a broken foot in junior high after a soccer injury. He is a history buff and brought that history to life with the best stories (somewhat rooted in truth and enhanced with fantasy). Her father and mine were childhood friends that grew up in the same cottages, just doors away. Her grandparents were members of the church that owned French’s Point before we bought it. I considered Marion’s grandparents the matriarch and patriarch of our little summer community.  They are very special family to me, and life-long summer neighbors. Marion might have been the smallest of the sea of cousins in the Bradford Cottage, but she was mighty and adored by all. My sweet father dubbed her “Maid Marion” and to this day, the name has endured for him.

After Alex proposed at the gazebo at French’s Point, they came to me. It seemed for them that celebrating here was the only option, given their connection to the place. They engaged an incredible team of vendors who brought their plans to life for the weekend. Marion in adulthood is articulate, kind, patient, diplomatic, intelligent, and loving woman. It was such a gift to reconnect with her at this stage in our lives. Alex adores Marion and I am so happy to see the mutual respect and admiration between them. We got to be a part of the sweet, joyful, glorious weekend, and for that, my heart is full.  Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - Destination Wedding Venue - Bridal Shoes - French's Point Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - Frenchs Point - Gazebo Ceremony Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - Frenchs Point - Gazebo CeremonyBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding VenueBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding VenueBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding VenueBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding VenueBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point Wedding Venue - Maine Wedding - Family HomeBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point Wedding Venue - Maine Wedding - Family HomeBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - French's Point - Family Vacation Home Rental - Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine French's Point Wedding - Neighborhood Family Gathering Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine French's Point Wedding - Neighborhood Family Gathering Brendan Bullock Photography - Trillium Catering - French's Point Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - Trillium Catering - French's Point Maine Wedding Venue Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine French's Point Wedding - Neighborhood Family GatheringBrendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's PointBrendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's PointBrendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's PointBrendan Bullock Photography - French's Point Wedding Venue - Maine Wedding - Family HomeBrendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point - Tent Reception in MaineBrendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point - Tent Reception in Maine Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point - Tent Reception in Maine Brendan Bullock Photography - Coastal Maine Wedding Venue - French's Point
