I never tire of weddings by the sea and Sarah and Ryan’s Prout’s Neck, Maine wedding is a perfect example of why. Their ceremony was held at the adorable St. James Church, one of the most charming chapels! It’s cozy shingled interior and exposed beams feels much like the interior of a ship and was the very church Sarah’s grandparents were married in 1950! Sarah carried with her a family prayer book that three generations of women in her family have also carried for their wedding day. Personal touches are what make each celebration so special. I love learning about each family and couples connections to the place they choose to celebrate and how they want to share that with their guests. For me, this is an important aspect of my job. I can’t say it enough. I love capturing these stories, in these places so the next generation can see it all again.
The Barn at Flanagan Farm is one of our favorite venues to work at. Tucked away in Buxton, Maine the venue is perfect for a wedding: the cozy farmhouse to stay in for the weekend with your family or friends, a quiet sanctuary in the woods for your ceremony, beautiful grounds for photos, and of course their lovely barn for dinner and dancing. One great bonus of Flanagan Farm is their grooms cottage. Jordan was able to start the day spending a little bit of time with the groomsmen before photographing getting ready with Elizabeth and her bridesmaids. The couple shared a sweet first look in the woods and we cannot get over Garrett snuggling Elizabeth after seeing her for the first time. The entire day was filled with lots of laughs and happy tears. Cheers to many more days of laughing together Elizabeth and Garrett!
