If you could imagine the most beautiful family-oriented backyard wedding on a warm, sunny September day – this would be it! Everything fell into place beautifully for this wedding to happen!
I met up with this adorable couple on a sunny evening in June to explore their wedding venue!
I’ve been looking forward to this wedding ever since I met these two at their Portland engagement session last Spring. I’ve never met two people who are more genuine and sweet than they are! Their wedding day was exactly like I had pictured – a day of rejoicing between two families who have known each other for decades!
Chani and Zack met at a stoplight in New Mexico. They were both towing their dirt bikes, and ended up exchanging phone numbers, thinking it would be fun to go riding together sometime. Several years later, here they are getting married on a gorgeous July day in Maine!
Mary and David met at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, 4 years ago. They were engaged in March, and decided they wanted a summer wedding on the coast, which led them to finding a new wedding venue, Two Cove’s Farm in Harpswell, Maine. Once they visited the Farm, they knew it would be the perfect place for them!
There was a calmness in the air on Kaleb and DeEtte’s wedding day. Planning a small, intimate gathering of their closest family and friends, there wasn’t a lot of rushing around, or a strict timeline. Kaleb sent DeEtte roses while she was at the salon getting her hair done. DeEtte got ready in a small room in the church with her Mom and her best friend. They were torn between laughing and crying. Once all the guests were inside, we stepped outside for a moment to do a first look with her Dad. The look on his face was pure joy and pride.
If you’re looking for the perfect Maine coastal wedding, you’ve found it! Complete with a backyard wedding on the ocean, a ride on a family lobsterboat, and a tented reception by the sea! Jess grew up the daughter of a lobsterman, and eventually her brother followed in his dad’s footsteps. It was only fitting that she would choose to be married to her soulmate on Maine’s rocky coast.
Matt and Michelle are High School sweethearts. When I met them at a coffee shop this past winter, they had such a friendly and gentle spirit about them, and I was excited to hear that they were planning a romantic Scottish/Irish/Medieval backyard wedding at the home of Michelle’s parents in Sidney, Maine, which is only a few minutes away from me.
