We have been soaking up all that Summer in New England has to offer and thought it was the perfect time to look back to one of our favorite Summer weddings. Just so happens to be a couple of days away from their 1 year anniversary!

Luke and Laisee you know how to do it right! From your seaside ceremony, lawn games, crazy good dance floor moves and of course Lobster! You brought out all the best of what Maine has to offer to treat your guests. We loved being able to capture your celebration, hear about your history together and capture all your nearest and dearest as they celebrated along side you. We hope that you have many more perfect Maine Summer days like this in your life together! Cheers to you both!

Prouts Neck is one of those quintessential, timeless coastal Maine communities that you just fall in love with! And it was the PERFECT setting for Laura and Carl’s wedding weekend. From the shingled chapel, the navy blazers, custom lobster monogram and Laura’s heirloom veil their wedding day was straight out of New England look book! They were stunning! And those smiles! You just couldn’t help but smile when you were around them. Their excitement, energy and love for each other was so present it was contagious. Laura and Carl we are coming up on your one year anniversary (how is that possible!) and we wish you many more picture perfect days in the years to come! Cheers!

There is just something so special about celebrating with family and friends on Nantucket. Emily and Gavin were married on island last fall and guests were treated to all the couples’ island favorites! A seaside ceremony complete with their adorable dog, the traditional cannon fire to mark sunset, New England raw bar and of course, Downyflake Doughnuts late night! So fun! We loved hitting all their favorite island spots for portraits and of course, the docks at the Great Harbor Yacht Club make for a breathtaking backdrop!

Emily and Gavin we hope the years ahead bring you all your favorite things both on and off the island! Cheers to you both!

Following up our post from last week on Catherine and Brian’s wedding weekend events we wanted to bring you their gorgeous wedding day! No couple ever dreams of a rainy day for their nuptials but there is something so cozy and romantic about snuggling in together under an umbrella! We started the day with the ladies getting ready at Catherine’s family home on Prouts Neck. They guys prepared right down the road and made their way to the house for the couples’ first look on the staircase in front of family and friends. Such a fun moment for all!

Their intimate ceremony was held in the charming St. James Church right on Prouts Neck. Guests then made their way to the golf club for a cocktail hour filled with hugs and delicious appetizers prepared by Dandelion Catering. Capturing the toasts from their family and wedding party was a highlight for us. Laughter, tears and more laughter is always a great moment for candid photos. The tent was filled with love for these two, you could not only hear it in the toasts but you could feel it as well. Catherine and Brian we wish you years filled with this kind of love and laughter surrounding you! Cheers!

Jordan had the pleasure of meeting Katie and John at John’s family home for an e-session before their wedding day.  Their love of the area and the coast made it clear The Cliff House in Ogunquit was the perfect location for their wedding celebration. Being right on the rocks, that close to the water, celebrating with the people closest to you is really about as good as it gets! These two are so loved! Listening to some of the most heart felt toasts and seeing everyone come together to bring the party to the dance floor, it was obvious they were all together to celebrate Katie and John. Katie and John we wish you many more happy nights together filled with friends, laughs, and nonstop dance parties!

When chatting with Chuck and Melissa about their wedding day photos we got SUPER excited that they wanted to take full advantage of all the beautiful locations that Hidden Pond has to offer. It’s one of Maine’s most unique wedding venues and one of the many reasons we love photographing there!

These two are just the sweetest. Their smiles tell the whole story. This was a celebration and the warmth, excitement and heartfelt tears kept us smiling all day long. Chuck and Melissa, it was an honor to be there to capture your wedding day! Cheers to the two of you and may all the smiles, hugs and love that surrounded you on this day be felt everyday!

Last fall I traveled North to a part of Maine I rarely get the chance to visit for an editorial bridal gown shoot at the New England Outdoor Center. It was breathtaking! Upon arrival I toured the property with their staff walking the trails to cozy cabins in the woods, scenic outlooks and jaw dropping mountain views. There really couldn’t be anything better for a photoshoot!

I spent the night in their lake front cabin chatting with our talented team and reviewing the looks and styling ideas for the following day’s full schedule of shooting. I love working with a creative team to bring an idea to life! Hair, Make-up, the dresses, jewelry, flowers and cake were all thoughtfully selected in the weeks leading up to the shoot and it was time to put it all together in this beautiful place!

I am so thrilled to see one of my shots on the cover of the current issue of Real Maine Weddings! You can snag a copy right now to see their full feature of the shoot. It truly does take a team to bring this all to life so I thought it would be fun to share a few behind the scenes along with some of our favorite shots from the day!

This year’s wedding season kicked off with Kimberly and Tim’s wedding at Maple Rock Farm in Parsonsfield, Maine. May at Maple Rock Farm is just beautiful! Although we just missed the apple blossoms on the trees in the orchard, Spring had finally sprung and everything was lush, green, and gorgeous. I was so excited to be a part of Kimberly and Tim’s big day because THEY were just so excited and kept talking about how much they wanted their day to just be the best party they ever threw. It’s so fun when couples add so many personal touches to their celebration; Kimberly made all of the bridesmaids jewelry (gorgeous bracelets and earrings),  her father made the arbor they were married under, and the signature cocktails were the couples’ very own recipes, and their favorite Maine touches like Funky Bow beer and lobster rolls! Their day surely was an AMAZING party and all who attended had such a great time. Kimberly and Tim, cheers to many more amazing parties and happy times together!

September might just be my most favorite time to be on Island. The pace is just a little bit slower, the summer busy season has come to an end but the beaches are still stunning, the restaurants are all still open and there are so many wonderful wedding celebrations taking place! Rebecca and Peter had planned their Nantucket wedding thinking about how to best showcase the island in all it’s glory! I just loved the classic style of these two and how they embraced all the island has to offer (even if that’s fog!). We traveled to Sconset for photos, walked right through town for a few more and ended with guests at the Nantucket Yacht Club right on the harbor. The big hit of the day, when the newlyweds fired off the yacht clubs cannon to signal the start of dinner! Now that is one way to kick off a party! Rebecca and Peter we hope all your milestones together come with this kind of excitement!
