Cheers to Lyssa & Dave! They were married yesterday in the sweetest, intimate, seaside ceremony in Kennebunkport, Maine. While they have moved the “big party” to next year, yesterday felt like it was always meant to be. I feel so lucky that I get to see them again next year! As Lyssa said “two weddings, one husband!” Love it!
What a privilege it was to be a part of this dinner series! The Boston Planners Dining Club is a rotating dinner series aiming to showcase the talent and ideas of the area’s wedding professionals. These events are so important in bringing us all together to get some face to face time and continue to connect in the “off season”. The gorgeous White Barn Inn was the setting and let me just say this was one of the top 5 meals of my life! It was such a treat to take a seat at such a gorgeous table setting and not only photograph but experience what the creative team put together. There is nothing I love more than being part of such a creative community here in New England!
What a treat it is to look back on Elissa and Sam’s Kennebunkport, Maine wedding! These two threw such a fun party with lots of laughs and happy tears included! We love when our couples tell us why they decided to get married in Maine. Elissa and Sam spent time in Kennebunkport making memories during their early relationship and they knew they just had to return to exchange their vows and celebrate with their nearest and dearest. We’re so thankful you came back to this special place to celebrate and that you chose us to capture all the fun!
You can hear more from Elissa on her planning process in their feature in Real Maine Weddings magazine!
Year after year it seems Summer comes and goes so quickly! As a Maine wedding photographer I live for the Summer months. The rocky coastline is just a breathtaking backdrop for photos and meeting so many families that hold this place that I call home so close to their hearts is just the best! Megan and Josh got married last August and with the first few snow falls of the season I can’t help but reminisce about this warm, love filled day! The Breakwater Inn was the perfect place to celebrate with the gorgeous view of the river and plenty of space for their beautiful tent…oh! and how about those nearby fireworks at the end of the night?! It doesn’t get much better than this. Although we’re in for a long Winter ahead, I’ll take any chance I can get to bring myself back to these sunshine filled, dreamy days while I wait for next season.
‘Tis the season for giving and we have some fun ideas for someone special. One of the most thoughtful gifts we can recommend to you is a family portrait session. Have you ever had the best family vacation of your lives and found yourself wishing you had photos to look back on? Or, how many times is mom or dad behind the lens but not in any of the photos? We have met so many families that return to Maine every year and we just love the opportunity to capture those memories for them to remember. Email us to purchase your gift certificate and when your trip gets closer we can set a date for your portrait session. Sessions include an online gallery so the whole family can view the photos no matter where they are!
Holly and Brendan were married in Kennebunkport, Maine at the beautiful outdoor chapel at St. Ann’s Episcopal Church. It’s a spectacular spot right on the ocean. And in true New England fashion they experienced the full range of Maine weather for their day! The sky was full of storm clouds and even a bit of lightning at times! (made for quick nuptials!) But these two and their guests took it in stride. The couple popped some umbrellas for their boat ride to their reception at the Kennebunk River Club and were welcomed by a porch full of guests. Cocktails, dinner and toasts were all enjoyed inside of the River Club and then guests moved across the street for some super fun dancing at the Casino. Such a fun space created by the team at Beautiful Days for dancing the night away! What a fabulous adventure capturing their day!
I had the pleasure of meeting Taylor and Mike the year before their Point Lookout Wedding and knew in that moment that we were going to have so. much. fun! These two were not only surrounded by some of the sweetest friends and family on their wedding day, they might also qualify as some of the silliest. The perfect mix of laughter and tears of joy! So many personal touches, thoughtful gifts and giant hugs. I couldn’t help but smile all day long.
Hidden Pond in Kennebunk, Maine is a secret little gem and was the perfect backdrop for Lauren and Leo’s wedding weekend. These two! Their smiles say it all! The joy, the happy tears, and the love that surrounded them on this day was simply inspiring. It was an honor to be there to capture it all! Cheers to you Lauren and Leo!
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.
