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.

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!

College sweethearts Janeka and Jeff first met while attending Bryant University. Life after graduation led the couple to settle into city life in Boston, but they always shared a special love for Maine. Weekends and vacations spent hiking, going to the beach, visiting Jeff’s family home in on the Southern coast and skiing Sugarloaf are just some of the many pursuits they enjoyed throughout their relationship. When it came time to plan the celebration, it’s clear why Bar Harbor was the obvious choice.

A native of the Downeast region, Janeka turned to the characteristic rocky coastline to inspire the details of the day. The couple exchanged vows in a traditional church ceremony, then welcomed guests back to The Bar Harbor Club for seafood and afternoon cocktails on the patio. Inside, fresh greenery and warm candlelight accented the venue’s elegant atmosphere flawlessly. We particularly love the portraits Kelsey Regan Photography captured right along the water’s edge–nothing gets more coastal than that!

Nothing beats a September wedding by the seaside. We’re loving Lauren and Pete’s Kennebunk celebration where nautical touches, modern details and bold florals came together seamlessly.

Lauren and Pete said, “I do!” in a traditional ceremony at a nearby church made of sea stones. Stunning portraits before the impressive ceremony site led to some sweet moments on the docks before the newlyweds made their way to the Nonantum Resort to celebrate. Inside, the design captured the perfect balance of playful glamour and classic coastal charm. Escort cards arranged in sand led loved ones to their seats where nautical striped runnings, gold table numbers and bright centerpieces stole the show.

Thank you to Lexi Lowell for sharing these wonderful images with us!

Another coastal Maine elopement for the books! Julianna and Wyatt were married at a private residence in Southern Maine surrounded by their closest friends and family.

The waterfront property on Kittery Point was the perfect place for an afternoon ceremony overlooking the Atlantic. The happy couple exchanged tearful vows, then welcomed guests back to the lawn for an al fresco dinner reception. Inspired by the bride’s blush gown, the couple chose a soft color palette of peach and ivory for the intimate celebration–even the skies complied! A pastel sunset served as the perfect backdrop for some final couple portraits with Rodeo & Co. Photography .

losbter-bake-rehearsal-dinner-maine-gretatucker22

A coastal wedding isn’t complete without a lobster bake! We love how Kate and Matthew embraced the spirit of their destination with a laid back rehearsal dinner in Boothbay Harbor, ME. 

The rehearsal dinner has been a long standing tradition that sets the tone for the wedding weekend. Originally valued for the opportunity to truly “rehearse” before the ceremony itself, a meal before the big day has become a special affair in its own right. A casual setting–like a backyard lobster bake–is a creative option beyond a formal plated dinner that allows loved ones to mix and mingle before the official celebration.

The night before their ceremony, Kate and Matthew welcomed friends and family to a classic clapboard bridge house overlooking the harbor. Guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn while fresh lobster, clams, potatoes and corn baked over open flame. Inside, red and white checked linens, “How to Eat a Lobster” plates, crackers and bibs completed the evening’s fun, cozy vibe.

Thank you to Greta Tucker for the amazing images. Inspired? Check out more creative ideas for rehearsal dinners and Kate and Matthew’s wedding day!
