WELCOME Thank you for visiting our wedding website! We are thrilled to share the joy of our big day. We feel so fortunate to have each of you in our lives and can't wait to celebrate our marriage with you. Here you will find wedding details that may be helpful throughout the weekend. love, Helen and Philip

Philip and Helen first met in September of 2017 at a War of 18 rednactment in Castine, Maine. Helen was out taking pictures when Phil & his friend Joey happened to walk through the photograph she had carefully lined up. But, before Helen had the opportunity to talk to Phil, she was enlisted in the reenactment as a volunteer member of the militia. Concerned no one would be able to capture her special moment, Helen turned to find a volunteer photographer, only to discover a cheerful Phil conveniently available. The two of them struck up a conversation and talked for two hours before Helen turned to leave. After walking to the parking lot, Helen had a feeling she should’ve asked Phil for his number. But, as she turned to go back to see if he was still there, she discovered he was already on his way to ask her the same thing.

This Spring, Philip proposed to Helen while they were on a road trip across Texas. In typical Helen fashion Philip proposed without Helen realizing it and Helen ended up photographing her own engagement.
