Carol & Justin’s wedding day was the perfect country meets seaside kind of day that every couple pictures for their Maine farm wedding. So many thoughtful details by the couple that transformed this already elegant farm into a beautiful and inviting affair.
The groom is related to Richard and Nancy Schmid, the owners of the farm so it was a natural choice for their special gathering of friends and family. And we loved this little bit country, and little bit rock and roll (and lots of elegance!) couple!
Some of our favorite moments from Carol & Justin’s day…
The girls belting out Don’t Stop Believin’ on the trolley ride the shore for our portraits. You can’t write this stuff.
Sister and Father of the bride singing and playing guitar during the reception – so beautiful.
THIS bride against THAT backdrop – one of my favorite WOW moments evah. See the pix below – nuff said.
The sweet and funny groomsmen getting jiggy during the portraits with the giant LOVE ball. Love it when the gents get comfortable enough to do fun stuff like that with me. Why not?!
Our long time friends and owners of Josias River Farm, Richard & Nancy leading the Conga Line!
The stunning early July light streaming through that pink sheer curtain and lighting up the stunning flower arrangements by Calluna. What a scene for the guests of this ceremony.
Justin & Carol letting themselves be romantic for their photos and soaking up every glorious detail and moment.
The flower girls and ring bearer checking out the customized flower petals in a fun pre-ceremony candid moment.
The smiles and awesome service of Black Tie Catering – the day is so fun when you find new friends.
The LL Bean Lobster totes at every seat – lucky guests!
That perfect dip at the end of the ceremony – great job guys! That is not easy to pull off so dashing.
The lobster roll “toast” between the bride and groom during the cocktail hour. Might as well have fun – it’s your wedding day!
Carol and the girls doing the “real portraits” and then the “goofy portraits.” There is apparently some new tradition here. 😉
The barn lit up against the dark blue night sky and Carol & Justin dancing under the lights.
Sparkler send off – I mean, come on – who doesn’t love that.
Congrats to Carol & Justin! What else can we say? You guys pulled off one of the most beautiful weddings this photographer has ever seen. Thank you for being in every moment!
