Two big things I loved about this wedding.
First – The York Harbor Inn Maine weddings during the day are special. They have two event rooms, and for day weddings you get the entire 1636 Dining Room all to yourselves and your guests. Quite a treat.
Second – Every so often a wedding, and couple come along that surprise even us. Elegance and endearing quirkyness – Karen & Marcel have both in spades. They wanted an elegant wedding, but made it all their own. From the colorful hand drawn adventure nautical theme, to the cute cartoon character action figure cake topper, to their Morrissey first dance…their day captivated everyone.
Moments we loved from Karen & Marcel’s wedding day in York Harbor…
Their beloved best friend furry friend Aengus passed away shortly before the wedding, he was supposed to be the ring bearer. They had him there in memory on Karen’s bouquet and other subtle places. So touching.
The romantic and unexpected floral bouquets from Lynne at F as in Flowers…perfect for the first weekend in October.
Paul from The York Harbor Inn! We made up #bettercallPaul on the spot that day because he’s the guy to call with any wedding emergencies on your day. A treasure.
Can we talk about Marcel’s movie star hair and look for a minute? He was totally oozing Robert Downey Jr Hollywood A List glam all day. With the attitude to pull it off.
Karen looked like she just walked off the set of Downton Abbey too! This couple!
You might be picking up their snarky humor and mannerisms too here and there. And the wedding party played along. Wish we could have seen the after party shenanigans with this crew.
Loved the character cake toppers too – esp the little grey doggie – and the suit on the knight even matches Marcels. Where is Karen’s crown, ahem?
Here is the best part of their day though – they let us have an hour with them in the fog around The Nubble Light and at the beach. Another great use of time for a daytime wedding is to save the last hour for your photographer – such a gift to everyone.
Congratulations to this fun couple!
