It’s not often I have weddings in eastern Maine (they tend to be in midcoast and southern Maine), so I was intrigued when I was contacted about Danielle’s wedding in Alexander, Maine (close to Calais). And I was in for a treat- their wedding took place on Danielle’s parents’ sprawling lakeside property that was manicured to perfection. The property had it all- gardens, woods, and lakeside frontage, and I had such a blast creating portraits of the two of them after their wedding because I had so much to work with.
The vendor team was spectacular and so much fun to work with. Wendy Caron, contracted through Diane York Weddings and Events, was absolutely fabulous in her role as day-of-coordinator and attended to every little detail with finesse. Stacia of Stacia Makeup Artistry traveled from southern Maine to glam Danielle and her girls and did excellent work as always. Josh Swan of Media Northeast, one of my favorite videographers in the state, also traveled from down south and made my job easier. Batteries Not Included traveled all the way from Rhode Island to pack the dance floor (and so they did!). And Wallace Events set up their tent, which looked magical nestled up in the trees. Check it out at twilight below (it’s the last image)- it’s stunning! There’s nothing like working with a vendor team I know and trust- it just makes the day go more smoothly.
Danielle and Jeff, thank you for letting me capture your love. Here are a selection of my favorite photos from your wedding day- enjoy!
