Silvana and David’s Acadia National Park Elopement

On a beautiful weekday in August, I joined Silvana, David, and their pup, Sabrina, as they traveled around Mount Desert Island, not only making beautiful portraits of the two of them amongst the scenic vistas we visited, but most importantly, capturing their elopement in Acadia National Park at Otter Point. At Your Service Tours & Car Service drove us around the island (which I highly recommend- we didn’t have to worry about parking, which can sometimes be a bit intense during the summer, and our driver, Grant, knew all of the best routes to our locations, which was an excellent benefit) and stopped at a variety of different locations, including the Somesville bridge, Jessup Path, and Cadillac Mountain. After their sweet ceremony, Silvana and David joined their friends and family at Atlantic Oceanside Hotel to celebrate with- what else- an outdoor lobster bake at sunset as the fog slowly rolled in. It was all perfectly Maine.

I so enjoyed my time I spent with the two of you, Silvana and David. Here are a few of my favorites- can’t wait to share the rest with you!

Sadie and Jared’s Wedding at the Contented Sole in New Harbor, Maine

Sadie and Jared’s wedding had a 90% chance of rain, but with our powers combined, the rain held off completely during the ceremony, portraits, and cocktail hour- success!  Although it rained during the reception, it stopped ever so briefly during sunset, just in time for us to capture some truly magical portraits at The Contented Sole. Thanks, unpredictable Maine weather!

Sadie and Jared prepared for their wedding at The Bradley Inn, in New Harbor, Maine, then traveled to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (one of my favorite lighthouses in Maine!) for their ceremony. After we wandered around the rocky shoreline, we joined the rest of the wedding party and traveled over to The Contented Sole, where lobster and beautiful pink cocktails awaited guests. There were fun entrances, hilarious toasts (that included large, embarrassing photos of Jared throughout childhood), sweet first dances, and then the dance floor came alive as friends and family tried to outdo one another. One of my favorite parts of their wedding may have been their wide variety of desserts- I spotted tiny root beer floats, macaroons, cupcakes, and lobster-shaped cookies. So much fun!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Sadie and Jared’s wedding day. Enjoy!Sunset wedding portraits taken at The Contented Sole in New Harbor, Maine

Annie & Markus’ Small Wedding at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

Annie and Markus’ small, elopement-like Maine wedding was nothing short of delightful. The pair planned everything within days- after flying in from Geneva, Annie purchased a dress in New York, selected Pemaquid Point as their ceremony location (which is relatively close to where Annie grew up and where Annie’s parent currently reside), and obtained a marriage license. And on the day of, Annie’s parents helped with the final details, creating bouquets and a centerpiece from flowers in their garden, baking a cake, and making hors d’oeuvres. I started my day by spending 2 1/2 hours capturing portraits of the pair at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Pemaquid Beach, and Fort William Henry, and during that time we experienced all sorts of beautiful light- direct sun, lightly overcast skies, and fog. After portraits, everyone pitched in to decorate a table, while Charlotte, Annie’s mom, frosted their wedding cake.  After their brief ceremony, which took place in thick fog, Annie threw her bouquet to a group of young campers who were near us (it was adorable) and everyone toasted Annie and Markus.

Afterwards, I was thoughtfully invited by Annie and Markus to partake in dinner with them at Annie’s parents’ home, and since we finished relatively early in the day I joined in. We all partook in espresso brewed at Charlotte’s art gallery and cafe, and enjoyed each other’s company as the lobster was prepared and then eaten (none for me, unfortunately, I’ve never been a fan. What kind of Mainer am I?).

Thank you for your hospitality- spending all day with you was such a treat. Enjoy these photos!
