This is a happy picture of our daughter Dana and her husband Eric sharing their cake on their wedding day, eighth years ago, here at the Captain Lord Mansion.  Their small wedding ceremony was performed at the Kennebunkport Village Baptist Church, after which their reception was held in the Mansion Carriage House.  The wedding took place on Labor Day weekend, 2003 and God blessed us with perfect weather.  Bev's decorations in the Carriage House included multiple strings of miniature white lights stapled on the barn ceiling where they were covered by lace netting.  Also, Bev used the same small lights, more lace netting and lots of ribbons to frame the Carriage House windows.  Dana chose green and purple as her colors, so those colored ribbons and bows were used as accents throughout.  The effect was magical.  What had been a rather rustic and mundane interior of a barn was transformed into a really attractive reception area. The effect was enhanced by tables and chairs covered in white linen.  Also, Dana selected Calla lillies as her flowers; Dana's bouquet featured them and Bev found lovely Calla lilly vases for table decorations. There were about 75 family members and close friends in attendance at the wedding and reception.  The affair was ably catered by Mountaintop Caterers; their buffet was located under a modest tent set up beside the carriage house, so guests could gather their food and move directly to the seating in the barn.  Bev also set up a smoothie bar in front of the carriage house; that was a neat additional touch for the reception!  After the reception, the young couple enjoyed their wedding night in the Captain's Suite (Merchant) before heading out for a week exploring Nova Scotia in Bev's (then) new convertible (since traded in).  I was able to make reservations for them at several excellent inns throughout Nova Scotia, so they stayed in some memorable bed and breakfast establishments.  This Labor Day they are celebrating their 8th anniversary.  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
