Emily & Brian’s seaside wedding in Kittery Point was one of those very enchanting days we get from time to time here in late Summer in Maine. It was unseasonably warm for starters…but as usual the crystal clear light in September never disappoints. And is if on cue by the planner, the fog rolled in during the reception like a warm, protective hug around the couple and their guests. Magical!
Some of our favorite moments from Emily & Brian’s wedding day…
The serene blue sea-green and aqua blue palette acted like a yarn that wove their day together so perfect.
The moment Emily saw her bouquets! Her friend and bridesmaid did them as a gift. The first of many on their day.
The playfulness and love on display by the bridesmaids in there classic Maine inspired rustic red checkered gear.
The location! What a location. Very unique on the coast of Maine – a private estate with 180++ degree views of the wild North Atlantic on one side, and the picturesque Portsmouth NH coastline on the other. Stunning.
Emily’s romantic and on theme floral hair style by the very talented Megan at Esse. I know I keep saying stunning – but Emily really took our breath away.
I loved the non-traditional wedding party t00 – a mix of gals & guys all there to stand for Emily & Brian. They each had a little note to read at the beginning of the ceremony too. So much thought put into every moment of the ceremony – it all came together so beautifully.
The harmony and warmth of the song that the couple’s friends both wrote and performed for everyone during the ceremony. Brian and his clan are from Phoenix, and Emily spent Summers in York on the beach…and the lyrics talked about the ocean, and the desert and the love – not a dry eye. What a gift.
It was a hot afternoon and a few of the Dad’s took their kids up on the shady embankment to spy on the wedding – love catching those unexpected moments for our couples.
All the toasts were hilarious and heartfelt, but Brian’s two sisters cracked themselves up, and everyone else too during their toast. Great moment and a sign of the great party to come.
The fog rolling in…it actually entered the tent like a guest…at one point we couldn’t see people on the other side of the tent – quite the Maine show for all of Brian’s high desert clan.
I could go on…but Emily & Brian know how I feel about them. So much love to them both! Amazing Day!
