    Favorite restaurant in Maine?
    Liams. Its at Sunday River & the food is really yummy.

    Thing you hate most about our state?
    Tourist season. Snow is not exciting. Leave us alone.

    If you could live anywhere in our state where would it be?
    I would love to live on one of the islands. Its just so beautiful.

    Favorite Maine beach?

    Popham. It'll always be my favorite because if you can catch low tide there are always hundreds of sand dollars.

    Favorite thing about FI?
    He loves my children like they are his own.

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    St Lucia! I've never seen the ocean south of CT & the only place I've ever been on vacation to is Disney World. Im so excited its crazy.

    Least favorite part of planning?
    Guest list & registry. Shoot me..

    Favorite wedding detail?

    Our cake. I fell in love with Martha's butterfly cake & Im stealing it & making it my own. Its turned into the whole inspiration for my wedding!

    Favorite non chain restaurant in Maine?
       Lucky Loggers in Saco, breakfast is never never bad!
    Thing you hate most about our state?
       Tourist season, especially when it comes to OOB area and the maine mall
    If you could live anywhere in our state where would it be?
       
    Closer to the beach
    Favorite Maine beach?
       Ive grown up loving Popham but even though its not really a beach more of like a fishing dock i will always have a place in my heart for Camp Ellis because this is where my fiance proposed.
    Favorite thing about FI?

    Favorite non chain restaurant in Maine?
    Ahh, so hard to pick! I say Sea Dog. I know there are three, but it's local, so not really a chain.

    Thing you hate most about our state?

    Summer is too short! Also, I wish there were more jobs here.

    If you could live anywhere in our state where would it be?
    Phippsburg. I'd love to live near the ocean.

    Favorite Maine beach?
    It's a tie between Popham and Small Point Beach in Phippsburg. When Popham's crowded, I go there.

    Favorite thing about FI?
    He's got this great mix between being a guys' guy (hunting, brewing beer, fixing cars) and a big sweetheart (loves to cook, super loyal to his friends, nice to my mom!). He's always interesting and always surprising me.

    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    Aruba! Ditto mainemommy, never seen the ocean outside of New England, and my only non-camping vacations have been Disney World. FI and I have never been on a real vacation together -- I'm so excited!

    Least favorite part of planning?
    Guest list. We both have big families and have a small venue and budget, so trying to keep everyone happy but stay within the budget and size constraints of our room has been hard.

    Favorite wedding detail?
    I love my antique mason jars! I've been a little obsessed with them...
    Anniversary

    Favorite non chain restaurant in Maine? 
       Maine Bean in Windham - haven't been since college but I love it!
    Thing you hate most about our state?
       the misconceptions about Northern Maine..that "northern Maine" is Bangor, ya no...and that there's nothing in the real N. Maine but woods...and do you know how many times I've been asked if we have electricity up there?  it's northern Maine, not Amish country! (although there are a couple of Amish communities)
    If you could live anywhere in our state where would it be?
       Home in Aroostook County - I much prefer the pace of life, the people, and the area - 7 a.m. Saco, it's rush hour practically, in Presque Isle streets are empty
    Favorite Maine beach?
        All but OOB - not a fan of OOB, it's dirty and crowded
    Favorite thing about FI?
      his sense of humor - he's always making me laugh and you never know what he's going to come out with next - he's rarely serious, which I love because life is too short to be serious
    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
      We're looking at all-inclusive resorts in the Bahamas/Caribbean
    Least favorite part of planning?
      Guest list
    Favorite wedding detail?
       Well we're not far a long at the moment but I love, love, love our colors!! Deep purple (like an egglant) w/ white or ivory

    Favorite non chain restaurant in Maine?
    Woodman's in Orono, and Lakewood Inn Restaurant in Madison (Where we are getting married)
    Thing you hate most about our state?
    That you can go to the beach on day and go snowmobiling the next, but that is also what I love about it!
    If you could live anywhere in our state where would it be?
    Central Maine... Dexter area where I grew up.
    Favorite Maine beach?
    any that have low traffic.
    Favorite thing about FI?
    His loyalty,  I know that no matter what he'll always be there at the end of the day.  That and he's a planner... except when it comes to weddings...
    Where are you going for your honeymoon?
    Still deciding, depending on finances either Italy or a cross country trip.
    Least favorite part of planning?
    The guest list
    Favorite wedding detail?
    right now I am working on button bouquets... hopfully they will turn out great! I think they will add a nice vintage touch to the wedding.
