To some, the idea of hopping on a plane and traveling to a place you’ve never been to to say “I Do” might seem crazy, but Amber and Colin weren’t daunted in the least. This spontaneous couple decided to forego a large and expensive ceremony and instead decided to travel from their home in North Carolina to the beautiful state of Maine, a place that both of them had long wanted to visit. The couple brought along Amber’s sister to officiate and their photographers, Bethany & Dan, to act as witnesses. And bada-bing bada-boom, the two went from being single to married just like that.
Bethany & Dan enjoyed the wedding for many reasons, one of which was the honor of being able to act as witnesses and actually sign the wedding license, something that was on both of their bucket lists. After the ceremony, the Amber & Colin and their small entourage wandered around town, just seeing the sites (and finding a USPS box to mail their marriage license!). Talk about a low stress option for your wedding!
Congratulations to Amber & Colin, and big thanks to Bethany & Dan for sharing these wonderful photos!

Kate & Michael enjoyed a sunshine-filled summer wedding this July at the beautiful Newagen Seaside Inn. Newagen 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!
