This wedding had an added twist. The bride is Australian and the groom is Irish – and we were all lucky enough for them to call Prouts Neck home and choose it for their wedding!
Phoebe has grown up spending Summers on this historic neck jutting boldly out on Maine’s rocky coast. The couple gathered friends and family from every hemisphere to join them in their joy filled Maine blue sky day.
Some of our favorite moments…
The cheeky but totally lovable Irish groomsmen having a laugh at the Groom’s expense (pretty much all day).
The natural and vibrant floral design from Broadturn Farm – so perfect for the first Saturday of Summer in Maine!
The woodland meets seaside details that Phoebe envisioned for her day – so very Prouts Neck.
The warm and fun smile that Phoebe was genuinely wearing all day.
The generous and heartfelt hospitality coming from both families for everyone and each other. Everyone felt so welcome.
The classic Maine Summer chapel with generations of stories coming from it’s warm wooden interior.
That red Cadillac! And the spunky “pedal to the medal” chauffeur!
We met a new videographer friend – by the end of the night we all wanted to get a beer together! Thanks Drew!
The toasts, and toasts, and toasts – what an abundance of love flung at them that night!
I’m all for putting your family to work – her brother Charlie was the amusing MC and her family farm in Australia made the olive oil favors.

That stunning, stunning (did I say stunning?) sunset over the North Atlantic (I think we could see Ireland from the tent!)
Most of all though…were Phoebe & Paddy themselves. Truly enchanting couple with hearts and smiles as big as the ocean.
Congrats Phoebe & Paddy! (I would say an Irish Blessing here…but I think your people covered that pretty dern well!)
