Pete & Alycia

Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor, Maine

A beautiful August day on the rugged coast of Maine was the adventure wedding plan for Alycia & Pete who invited some of their closest friends and family to witness the love birds’ promise to each other in the beautiful Acadia National Park.

While an unexpected storm may have interrupted portraits, a quick sprint to Oli’s Trolly and all was well in the world. We ventured through the park, rainy trolly windows framing the sudden rise and fall of the mountainous Acadia landscape. Weaving through canopied roads, we eventually stopped along the Ocean Path for a ceremony overlooking Otter Point.

The sky began to clear and through patches of sun and cloud, Alycia made her way across the granite shore to Pete, who, I’m fairly certain, was smiling the entire day.

When Jason asked who gave Alycia away, the crowd answered, “We do”—a beautiful reminder of the love and support coming alongside Mr. & Mrs. Siner as they stepped into a new chapter together as husband and wife.

From carefully made name cards, tables dubbed after famous Acadia hikes, and even a visit from a particularly special golden retriever, Alycia & Pete’s outdoor reception, nestled at the base of the Stonehouse, was sentimental, energetic, and full of lots of amazing dancing.

So take a page from Pete & Alycia’s book on how to plan a destination wedding, especially if you’re hoping for that iconic Acadian coastline and the festivities in Bar Harbor, Maine. Take a peek for some inspiration.

Sunstone villa flanked by olive trees--a wedding venue in Santa Ynez, Calfornia built with old-world, European charm

In the world of California venues, there are many that take your breath and offer a luxurious space to enjoy your day. Sunstone is one of the most iconic. Noted for it’s old-world charm and homey interior, this space feels less like you’re getting married at an estate and more like you’re getting married at home. Your very, very beautiful, Tuscan-inspired home.

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
