Jill and Bo were both working in restaurants when they met. Bo as an incredible executive head chef and Jill as a waitress. They had many mutual friends and they all used to meet up at a late night restaurant after long nights of working. They had their eyes on each other for a while and finally everything lined up and they began falling for each other over stiff cocktails and late night Thai food.

Bo proposed on Christmas Eve at sunset at one of Jills favorite place in the world, the Backshore Beach in Castine. Taylor, Jill’s sister and maid of honor and her boyfriend Ryan were also apart of the proposal, recording the event and setting fireworks off when Jill said yes. The proposal was followed by champagne, margaritas and Mexican food, three of their favorite things.

When deciding on a location for their wedding, the Wilson Museum in Castine was their first choice. They got married in early August of 2019.

Their wedding ceremony took place on the lawn of the Museum. It started to rain right before the ceremony began but that didn’t stop Jill & Bo. They where married in the rain in front of their closest family and friends. As the ceremony came to a close and the bride and groom shared their first kiss the craziest thing happened. The gray storm clouds parted and the sun came out. How wild is that!

After their ceremony on the lawn of the Wilson Museum they moved up to the Barn to celebrate. I always try to encourage my clients to incorporate small details on their day that represent them. Growing up in Castine one of Jill’s first jobs was at Markel’s Bakehouse. When deciding who to have cater their event it was an easy choice for them! Markel’s Bakehouse, a local favorite, provided delicious food and a beautiful cake. My other favorite detail was their getaway car. Jill’s father owns a vintage green truck. Jill arrived to their wedding ceremony at the Wilson Museum in the truck and they drove off into the sunset with it.
