    I had my reception at Season's Event and Conference Center (Molly is having her reception there too).

    For a little under 100 people, my reception cost about $4000.  That included a cocktail hour with a few different food options, $500 worth of open bar, chair covers, and fancier linens on the tables (all of those are optional).  The food was unbelievable and Tracy, the event coordinator, is amazing.

    I just joined the boards and wanted to tell new brides about some of my experiences with our wedding. We had I Do Spas, Maine's only traveling day spa and beauty travel out for our hair and makeup. They are awesome and inexpensive. You might want to check them out on facebook. Sebago is so beautiful, congratulations and good luck.

I charge $400 for 5 hours and $75 per hour after. I only charge .40 cents per mile if the wedding is farther than 20 miles from my location.  Happy wedding planning!!/pages/Focus-On-You-Photography/196853363710708
