Bethany & Dan

Hannah and Colin tied the knot at the groom’s family home in Windham, ME. The lakefront private residence was the perfect setting for a cozy outdoor celebration just before the turn of Autumn.

The bride and her father rode to the ceremony together, dancing to one of their favorite silly songs. Colin waited for his bride beneath a birch altar festooned with burgundy, ivory and orange blooms to match the bridal bouquet. The happy couple exchanged vows before their nearest and dearest with Celtic blessings, then headed up the hill to a tented reception where guests enjoyed homemade wine and oven fired pizza. The evening ended on a high note with a surprise fireworks show!

Thank you to Bethany and Dan Photography for sharing this special day with us.

The connections to her family and friends that we knew so well made the day feel like a family event which made it more special for us and our team.

Emilie Inc.

Karina and Caleb trekked out to Cape Elizabeth, ME the morning after a blustery rainstorm for a cozy e-session with Emilie Inc. The light just after sunrise was perfect to capture stunning portraits as they explored the park’s beach, rocky outcroppings and surrounding woodlands. We love how the happy couple kept things casual in cozy sweaters, jackets and boots. Karina and Caleb’s love truly shines through these gorgeous images!
