It was very important for Emily and Io to get married during Pride Month, so picking their date was easy. Deciding where they wanted to get married was pretty easy too. Io had grown up in Camden, so she was very familiar with the beauty of the small coastal Maine town. The Camden Harbour Inn was the perfect fit for the intimate day they had planned with their closest family and friends.
Before the wedding, we ask every couple to provide us with a list of the details that are really unique to their wedding. This is where they can jot down anything that we might not see at other weddings. Io’s response was an instant favorite. She wrote something along the lines of, “we don’t have too many details to worry about. We’re more about the moments. Also, Emily has an amazing smile. Feel free to get as many photos of that as you possibly can.” It was such a sweet response, and it really stuck with me. It also happened to be true. You’ll see lots of Emily’s smile below. I couldn’t help but notice that while Emily’s smile makes Io happy, Io is the one who makes Emily smile. These two were perfectly-crafted for each other.
The day was beautiful and very much about family. It was clear that Emily and her family were already family to Io and her kids, but there was a lot of excitement in the air as they made it official. During a phone call leading up to the wedding, Io said, “Emily is fantastic with my kids. I love seeing the little moments between them. They love her so much.” I’m so glad we got to see a little slice of this.
