Kate & Michael enjoyed a sunshine-filled summer wedding this July at the beautiful Newagen Seaside InnNewagen is conveniently located in Mid-Coast Maine in close proximity to Boothbay Harbor. Boothbay and the surrounding region is filled to the brim with activities to entertain you and your guests, such as a variety of different boating options, hiking trails, botanical gardens, an aquarium, and the famous Monhegan Island, which is well known for being the home and inspiration to many an artist.

Kate & Michael’s photographer, Bethany & Dan were kind enough to share their recollections of the day with us:

“There were a lot of fun details to this day, like the fact that Kate & Michael shipped in their favorite ice cream all the way from Ohio and the awesome cocktails that they served to pay homage to where the live, Manhattan! Our favorite detail of all was Kate’s dress. She wore a short dancing dress and then added a skirt over it for the ceremony that was made from her mothers wedding dress. It was incredibly unique and even more lovely.”

Congratulations to the happy couple, and a huge thank you to Bethany & Dan Photography for sharing these wonderful pictures with us!

Ashton & Mike married at The Landing at Pine Point in Scarborough, Maine, this past August. Their wedding is full of quirky and awesome details, like wine cork boutonnieres and fun socks for the groomsmen. Our favorite aspect of the wedding, however, is that it combines such bold, vibrant colors with touches of a 1920-inspired Gatsby look. For instance, notice Ashton’s adorable headband and chunky pearl accessories. Peacock feathers make an appearance in the bouquets and table centerpieces, and gold accents dot the reception area. Most impressively, though, Ashton & Mike achieved a classy feel that still retained elements of DIY, making it feel elegant yet approachable. Wonderful job all around!

Congratulations to Ashton & Mike, and a huge thank you to Carrie Pellerin Photography for sharing these beautiful images!

    Quirky is definitely the right word to use, but I love it. The colours of the older and younger bridesmaid dresses really catch the eye. And the colour theme throughout the whole setting is just brilliant. Loving the lemonade pot idea.

Seaside Wedding at Laudholm Farm

November 10 • 2014

Sandy and Elliott married this October at the beautiful Laudholm Farm, a venue which boasts both ocean views and a rustic farm feel. Their photographer, Whitney from emilie inc. says it is “one of her favorite places to photograph, no matter the season.”

How they met, in their own words:

We met when we both lived in Washington, DC. It was Sandy’s last weekend in DC, before she was going to be moving up to Connecticut for the summer, and then off to Chicago for grad school. Sandy was out with her friends on Saturday night, at a VERY classy establishment (read: dive bar) called Millie & Al’s. Elliott was also there with a group of friends. Millie and Al’s has a very special feature – an over-sized light bulb behind the bar – when this light bulb goes on, Jello-shots are only $1 each! So naturally Elliott bought 20 of them…but then all but 2 of his friends left, so he had a lot of extra Jell-O shots. Elliott spied a cute redhead across the room, and generously offered his extra Jell-O shots to Sandy and her friends. Sandy, having spent an overwhelming amount of her college summers at concerts at the Hartford Meadows, was very accustomed to taking Jell-O shots from friendly strangers. We clicked right away, spent that night dancing and hanging out, and then saw each other every day for the next week. That Friday, Sandy even convinced Elliott to play hookie from work, and drive with her in a UHaul van from DC up to Connecticut! (As a tribute to our very classy first date, our wedding toast will feature both champagne and Jell-O shots!)

Our wedding planning and inspiration has centered around wanting to get together with all of our family and close friends, and have a great celebration! Naturally our priorities were to find a gorgeous venue, hire a fabulous live band, and of course provide great food (lobster!) and an open bar. The rest of the details can be characterized as understated, classic New England, while playing up the natural beauty of Laudholm.

Congratulations to the happy couple and a huge thank you to emilie inc. for sharing these love-filled photos! Check out more of emilie inc.’s photos on lulawed.com!

There are many things to love about this wedding: the bride’s lacy dress, the cute lobster details, the luxurious tent. Our favorite element of the wedding, though, is the striking bouquets and centerpieces made by Sweet Annie Floral Design. We love everything about them: the color scheme of light peaches, pinks, corals, and creams paired with navy, the dinner plate dahlias, and, maybe most of all, the succulents scattered around throughout all of the wedding decor. Fabulous job!

A huge thank you to Kivalo Photography for sharing these gorgeous detailed shots of the wedding. Enjoy!
