Aragosta Deer Isle Wedding: Abby & Halavah
Joel and I were big fans of Aragosta's Stonington location, so I wasn't sure it could get much better than that. However, after visiting their new home at Goose Cove for brunch, I fell in love. I quickly put it into the universe that I wanted to photograph an Aragosta wedding in Deer Isle, Maine. Abby and Halavah were sent our way for their October wedding approximately three months later. We got to make the dream come to life! I love an intimate coastal Maine wedding. Cozy weddings with twenty or so guests are my jam. Aragosta is magic with its delicious food, clear greenhouse for private dining, and the stunning backdrop of its rocky beach.
Lubec Maine Wedding: Leslie & Rob
I'm excited to finally share Leslie and Rob's Lubec, Maine wedding on the blog. Leslie and Rob have known each other since high school. After experiencing a lot of life together as friends, they finally got together and thought, why don't we get married!? Initially, they thought they'd sign the paperwork and call it official, but since Rob still has his parents, he wanted them to be present. They asked themselves where they could go and who they could get to come. Leslie's brother has an A-frame in Perry, Maine, which got Leslie's mind working. They knew they could get ready at her brother's and then head somewhere else for the ceremony and dinner with their small group of friends and family. Neither of them had ever been to Lubec, Maine, so why not?
The Contented Sole Maine Wedding: Eric & Nathalie
Eric and Nathalie's wedding at The Contented Sole in New Harbor, Maine seemed a long way off when we video chatted with them back in May of 2020. We were all quarantining, so Eric was in New Hampshire while Nathalie joined our call from Paris. Planning a long-distance wedding is hard enough, then throw in the uncertainty of Covid... That's a lot of extra stress. However, I was amazed at how well they handled everything. They were able to reunite briefly in September to take care of some additional planning and so that we could squeeze in their engagement photos at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. When October 2021 rolled around, and we knew it'd be safe for them to have their dream wedding, I think we all breathed a sigh of relief. After their church ceremony, we headed back to Pemaquid Point Lighthouse for portraits. These two set aside two hours for photographs of just the two of them (be still my heart!), and the weather was almost identical to what we had experienced during their engagement session. We were given the dreamiest color palette of blues, purples, and oranges in the sky that intensified as we got closer to sunset. Maine never ceases to amaze me with how beautiful it is.
