The Award Winning Image of “The Bass Harbor Lighthouse at Dusk” was chosen from a group of images submitted by various photographers in Downeast Maine.  The ER Nursing Staff and Upper Level Management at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital were called upon to judge the images. The selected Bass Harbor Lighthouse image was used in the creation of a stunning 15×15 foot mural that will grace the wall behind the reception desk and next to the waiting room area of the new ER facility at MCMH.

The image was created by Riverside Studio
Photographer, William Brehm. It received the highest score of all images submitted in the 2008 Maine Professional Photographer’s Print Competition and was awarded the coveted “Fuji Masterpiece Award” at the MPPA convention awards banquet in 2008.

Jamie And Tom Get Married in Bar Harbor

Posted in General on December 4, 2009 by riversidestudio

On October 10th Jamie and Tom tied the knot at The Seacoast Mission Mansion in Bar Harbor Maine. This is a great venue for a casual but classic style wedding in a really beautiful location. Visit the mission website at http://www.seacoastmission.org/ if you are planning an event or would like to make a contribution to help support their ongoing work of providing medical and other vital services for the the residents of the coastal islands of Maine. 

It was a very cool and blustery day for early October in Maine and the happy couple and their families and guests had a great time despite 50 MPH gales off the bay with temperatures in the low 40’s.

The marriage ceremony was performed by Robin Wade of Acadia  Weddings. As usual Robin did a great job. Anyone looking for a thoroughly professional and caring officiant for a wedding service in the Bar Harbor – Acadia National Park area of Maine should visit her website: www.acadiamassage.com/weddings/index.html.  We have worked with Robin on many occasions and she does such a wonderful job and offers a variety of wedding services . The fact that she enjoys her work of uniting couples in love really shows.

Jamie & Tom were as happy as two peas in a pod.

The day was picture perfect with a georgeous sunset to usher in a lobster bake dinner under the big top tent.

Speaking of lobster bake dinners, what a feast was rolled out by Bar Harbor Lobster Bakes. If you are in the market for a catered professional Lobster Bake visit their website www.barharborlobsterbakes.com. Ask for Steve Cough and he’ll have you on your way to Lobster Heaven in no time at all.

By the time evening rolled around it was bottoms up and a grand time for all. It was truly a pleasure to work with the Jamie & Tom and we wish them the best of luck in the future.

Jamie & Tom’s Wedding was photographed by Maine Wedding Photographer William Brehm.
