boho-rustic-maine-lake-styled-shoot-17

This dreamy boho-inspired shoot is the creation of a team of unstoppable Maine wedding vendors! We’re absolutely in love with the design’s laid-back theme and au naturel vibe.

A cloudless day at Maine Lakeside Cabins in Caratunk, ME set the scene for this oh-so romantic shoot. The venue’s cozy cabin interiors channel the spirit of summer camp with all the comforts of a polished hotel. The design team created  two tablescapes, each outfitted with lush floral arrangements and hand-lettered table numbers. Petite bird’s nests and geometric votives united rustic and modern sensibilities. Inside, a hanging floral arrangement echoed the bouquets’ wild charm suspended over a sweets table. Thank you Perle Photography for sharing these images and to all the vendors who put their time and talent into this shoot!

Before they tied the knot, Halliday and Ruben hosted their closest friends and family at Monhegan Island for a classic Maine rehearsal dinner. Sunshine and crystal clear skies welcomed guests to the island for a casual cocktail hour overlooking the surrounding ocean. Partygoers enjoyed Dark and Stormies while the happy couple skipped away for some gorgeous portraits by the water, captured by Darling Photography.

Can’t get enough? Check out Halliday and Ruben’s beautiful wedding day here!

When it comes to choosing your engagement shoot location, nothing beats the coast! Today we’re revisiting some of our favorite oceanfront e-sessions to inspire your announcement portraits. From balmy summer afternoons to brisk autumn mornings, these sweet sessions prove the seaside is the perfect setting all year long.

Planning a 2018 wedding on the coast? Take a tip from the sea and let your wedding destination inspire your invitation design. Nautical paper goods are never going out of style. We love how this theme translates into new trends; from modern, minimalist to whimsical watercolors and everywhere in between. Happy scrolling!

Nothing says, “dapper” quite like menswear with a maritime twist. We’re loving the latest in formal fashion that draws inspiration from the coast. Favorites include classic suits, nautical boutonnieres and unique prints–stripes, seer sucker or lobster ties anyone? [Photo: Sara & Mike, Bethany and Dan Photography]
