Fall is my favorite time of year on Nantucket. The island settles down from the busy Summer rush of visitors but the weather is still so beautiful! The island breeze turns crisp and it’s perfect for cozy snuggling, walking hand in hand and for a veil on your wedding day! Susanna and Morgan incorporated so many amazing details into their wedding that just echoed that classic Nantucket vibe. My favorite being their island classic, Jeep Wagoneer for a getaway car. The island is chock full of well loved Jeeps and I am sure this one has plenty of stories to share! It’s wedding touches like this that are so personal and tell me so much about the couple. Susanna and Morgan we had an amazing time photographing your island wedding and hope you always appreciate those simple little details just like you did on your wedding day. Oh! And Susanna, I think your wedding ceremony entrance will go down in the books for the most breathtaking. Seriously breathtaking.
It’s that time of year again, Maine Magazine’s wedding issue has hit stands and we are so excited to have our work featured again!

Those first few cozy snuggles with Mom.
It can be difficult to find a wedding venue that encompasses all that Maine has to offer: beautiful coastline, thick wooded forests, bright colored buoys, lobster boats speckling the shore, and that’s just to name a few things! We were thrilled when Real Maine Weddings Magazine invited us to be the photographers for their styled photoshoot featuring bridal gowns, flowers, and jewelry that can all be found right here in Maine! We headed out to Sebasco having never visited before and couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised! After arriving at Sebasco Harbor Resort it was quite clear why this place would make the perfect Maine wedding destination. It seems to have it all! We are so excited to share the featured magazine spreads from the photo shoot that can be found in the current issue of Real Maine Weddings Magazine! But be sure to take a look at the amazing behind the scenes footage filmed by Matt Forcier of LMV Productions. It’s a hard working team that makes this look so good!
Who says you can’t have a beautiful, cozy, seaside wedding in November?! Ashley and Jim sure did! There may have been a chill in the air, but with all of the love surrounding Ashley and Jim from the amazing company they keep you couldn’t help but feel warm and fuzzy inside. Seeing as the couple are owners of a restaurant on the Cape, it was no surprise that they knew how to throw a party! The night was filled with laughter, kind words from family and friends, and dancing of course! Congratulations to Ashley and Jim and may they celebrate many years of happiness together filled with good food, good drink, and good company. Cheers to you both!
Maple Rock Farm is one of those properties that is beautiful no matter what the season. But I must say it is exceptionally amazing in the fall! Julia and Peter took advantage of all the gorgeous character Maple Rock Farm has to offer for their October wedding. An old farm house, tall maple trees, stone walls, an apple orchard and a HUGE barn! It was a photographers dream! But, with it being October in Maine you never know what you will get for weather and let’s just say it was a little chilly for their big day (freezing cold with a snow flurry later that night!). But looking at Julia and Peter you would never know. They were so happy to finally be getting married and celebrating with all their family and friends. They could hardly take their eyes of each other all night long and the way Peter snuggled his new wife in close to keep her warm just made you smile. These two are just so happy to be together. Just as simple as that. Julia and Peter we hope no matter what the weather brings you in your years ahead it’s always full of snuggles, hand holding and cozy nights just like your wedding day. Cheers to you both!
One word comes to mind when thinking about Jamie and Johanna’s wedding day and that’s laughter! Their day started with a first look out on the beach in Kennebunkport and from that point on the couple just couldn’t stop smiling and laughing together. As guests sat in anticipation of Johanna and her father’s walk down the aisle the crowd erupted with laughter when the flower girls made their entrance. The two girls got a bit nervous right before heading down the aisle and Johanna’s brother in law saved the day, doubling as “flower dad” throwing petals as he carried his daughters down the aisle. It was truly a laughter filled moment!
As guests gathered inside the Colony Hotel for dinner, toasts kicked off the evening with the perfect amount of laughter (and dash of tears) to reflect the newlyweds fun loving relationship. I think the whole building could feel the joy coming from that room! But once dinner concluded it was time to hit the dance floor. Everyone, young and old, danced until the final song. Jamie and Johanna we hope this laughter and joy follows you throughout the years ahead and we wish you many more laughs together! Cheers!
It’s not just about how good the food tastes, but how good it looks too!
York, Maine is a special place to Allie and Ashley and was the obvious choice for their wedding celebration! Allie got ready at her Grandmothers home overlooking York Harbor beach and their reception took place at her Uncles home just around the bend. One of the best parts of this day was just how special and intimate it felt. Both brides brought their own personal style to the day and it just felt like they had a very special part in every little touch.
Their excitement, energy and love for each other was nearly tangible throughout their celebration. Tears of joy were shed as Ashley met Allie at the alter, cheers were heard (loudly if I might add) as they were pronounced married and laughter filled the tent during dinners toasts. And speaking of toasts! Allie’s sister (with the help of all guests) gave one of the most amazing, creative and heartfelt toasts I have ever witnessed! Taking from the couple’s history with running marathons she likened their future together to running the Boston Marathon. Just like in their life together they have many, many supporters, who at various mile markers would jump up with signs of support and love cheering them on!! It was fantastic! The whole place was on their feet and cheering for them! It was beautiful. Allie and Ashley we hope that your marathon together is filled with the same beauty and love that surrounded you on your wedding day…. and I have a pretty darn good feeling it will be. Cheers!
Tucked just a few short miles away from the beach and the village of Kennebunkport is Hidden Pond. It’s a stunning wooded property and home to the well known restaurant Earth. If you have had the pleasure of visiting the property you can see why it’s the perfect venue for a celebration! Laura and Jake recited their vows on the forest edge right near the property’s own farm. Cocktails were held in the nearby flower gardens, dinner and dancing in the event barn and an afterparty at Earth!
Their day was so warm, cozy and inviting in every way. Even the clear tent where guests dined was filled with soft light and a cozy nook for snuggling or chats. And what better way to end the night than warm doughnut holes around the fire! Laura and Jake we wish you all the best in the years to come and many more nights around the fire with your loved ones… and doughnut holes… lots of warm doughnut holes!
