As with the rest of 2020, August was an uncertain month. Sara & Andrew’s original wedding plans were changed due to COVID-19, and while their garden wedding wasn’t possible, we got to spend a couple of hours on a perfect summer day in one of my favorite places in Maine: Acadia National Park.

It was really important for these two to still share their elopement ceremony with family and friends. Weddings in the park require permits unless you have under a 10 people, but not if you use video calling. If you’ve ever been to Acadia, you know that service is limited. However, on the ledges between Otter Cliffs and Thunder Hole, a sliver of service existed and was just enough to connect to Zoom for Sara & Andrew’s ceremony.

An adorable first look, stunning ceremony, and joyful trip to Jordan Pond and Cadillac Mountain later, we wrapped up their quick afternoon celebration and they were off to a reception dinner in Bar Harbor. I really can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday as a wedding photographer.

Within the state of Maine, I genuinely don’t know of a better place for a wild, coastal elopement or micro wedding, and am so excited to have a couple more on my calendar for this fall. Andrew & Sara’s day was gorgeous and I’m so glad they trusted me with capturing these moments.

The day went fast, the sun was strong, and the love was sweet. Wishing all the best to these kind souls and their fur babes.

The words I hear whenever I see these images are the final sigh Mitch gave Steph as he completed his vows to her. Between shaky breaths he said, “Oh Stephie, I love you more than words can say.” And sometimes it’s as simple as that.

This wedding venue offered a blank slate–white walls, simple chandeliers, large windows, and tall ceilings meant that Diana could design anything in that space. Keeping in line with L&J’s desire for simple, natural elements, they opted for white roses and peonies nestled into an abundance of greenery. For the ceremony, they chose simple cross-back chairs to mimic the wooden ladders of the apple orchard they faced and keep the entire affair organic and true to the location.

Autumn weddings are incredible on their own, but add a healthy dose of fall foliage and my al fresco dreams came true at this blush-inspired wedding day.
