Louisa has spent many years coming to MDI with her family, so she knew a Bar Harbor wedding in August would be perfect for sharing the area with friends and family. After securing the Bar Harbor Club for the ceremony and reception, Louisa’s mom set out to find a spot that would offer us a stunning backdrop for portraits as well as some privacy. She found the perfect spot at a rental home not too far away from the wedding venue. I was impressed!
While Joel hung out with the guys down in the pool house at the club, I was in the main building with Louisa, her mom, and her bridesmaids. The ’90s pop music was setting the mood as they sipped mimosas and had their hair and makeup done. Louisa entertained us all with a horse impression (puffing and rolling her lips) that was captured in slow-mo and sent out in a group text. Needless to say, they were a good time.
After heading to the nearby rental house for a first look, portraits on the cliffs, and recreations of some of Louisa’s parents’ wedding photos (this was so sweet!), it was back to BHC for an emotional ceremony, a very lively cocktail hour, and a reception full of heartfelt, yet hilarious toasts to the newlyweds.
It was so hard to pick images for this blog post because there are hundreds of photos I absolutely love of Louisa beaming (she has a fantastic smile and amazing eyes!) while Zach looks on, perfectly content. You’ll see what I mean below. On to the photos!
