History Regarding a Kennebunkport Bed & Breakfast

This is a delightful picture of our daughter Dana and her husband Eric sharing their cake on their wedding day 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 and they were covered by lace netting.  Also, Bev used the same small lights, lace netting and lots of ribbons to frame the Carriage House windows.  Dana chose green and purple as her colors, so there were lots of those colored bows used as accents throughout.  The effect was magical.  What had been a rather mundane interior of a barn was transformed into a real reception area, including 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 friends in attendance at the wedding and reception.  The affair was catered by Mountaintop Caterers; their food buffet was located under a modest tent set up beside the carriage house so guests could get 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!
