Matt and Kelley’s love story began in New York City. After getting engaged, however, the couple decided to look outside of the hustle and bustle of the big city for their wedding venue. Knowing that they wanted to stay near Kelley’s hometown of Concord, NH, Matt and Kelley spent three days touring the mountains and seacoast of Maine and New Hampshire, searching for the perfect location. The couple’s last stop was The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Kelley said they fell in love immediately. And how could you not? This coastal venue is to die for. On the day of the wedding, the bride got ready in a balcony room with views over the ocean, and the couple continued their day by exchanging “I Do’s” to the background ambiance of crashing waves. Kelley said their day went by without a hitch. We invite you to sit back and enjoy this breathtaking coastal Maine wedding.
Thank you to Lauren Methia Photography for the gorgeous images, and congratulations to Kelly and Matt!
Jillian and Wai originally met at the young age of 15 and 17, but did not reconnect until their mid twenties. After seven years of enjoying the dating life together, they decided to tie the knot in New Harbor, a quaint, seaside Maine town that Jillian’s family had long summered in. According to the couple, New Harbor was the perfect location to say I Do, as it was their “secret spot, that no one seems to know exists; which makes the location even more special.”
The wedding combined the feel of an elegant New England wedding with a smattering of rustic details, giving all the guests something to love. Its colorscheme of gold, peach and pinks created a romantic feel. At the reception, the guests enjoyed a photo booth, breathtaking views overlooking the Muscongus Bay, and a little late night s’mores bar to top off the celebration of Jillian & Wai’s love. The night was full of laughter and love, fabulously shown below through the photographs captured by the talented Darling Photography

Kristen and Timmy exchanged “I Do’s” overlooking the beautiful coast of Rockland, Maine. Brittany Rae Photography said her favorite part about the wedding day was the way that Kristen looked at her new husband (aww!). Timmy, unfortunately broke his leg just TWO weeks before the wedding! But he rocked it regardless and was such a good sport.
The couple decided to do a first look out on the patio, which allowed for more photo time as their guests enjoyed a fabulous cocktail hour and mingled with family and friends. This wedding is the perfect example of coastal romance. We love the pairing of Kristen’s lace gown with the soft color palette and luscious bouquets. And we’re a big fan of the way Timmy’s funky socks and floral bow tie combo show off his fun-loving personality!
