Karrie and Jason | The Barn at Flannagan Farm | Buxton ME

Karrie and Jason were married at The Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine on January 27, 2018.  I can’t believe that a year has gone when we first met up for their engagement session at the farm.  It was a winter themed wedding and thankfully the weather was perfect, not too cold, clear and with some good fresh Maine snow on the ground.  The barn looked stunning with it’s exposed wood beams accessorized with crisscrossed string lights and silken drapes creating an elegant passage through the center of the barn.  The day started in the farm house where Jason, his son and groomsmen occupied the downstairs while Karrie and her bridesmaids took the upstairs.  Soon Karrie was stepping out of the bridal room into the barn and escorted by her father down the aisle to Jason.  The party that followed was epic as you will see in the photos to follow!

Kara and Jeff
Hardy Farm Wedding | Fryeburg, Maine

Kara and Jeff are definitely a stylish couple and I knew their wedding at Hardy Farm would be a great one.  They both work in the design industry and Jeff collects vintage Mamiya cameras… really what else needs to be said!  Well, I was right and A Family Affair really turned on the magic and turned Hardy Farm into a wonderland of fresh evergreens and glowing lanterns.

The day started at The Little Chatham Lodge where the gentlemen were getting ready.  They all had a vintage flair going with their grey and black suits and pink ties.  After some drinks and photos I was soon back at the farm photographing the bridal party as they prepped for the day.  Kara’s two piece dress was stunning and check out those unusual wedding and engagement rings.  Kara and Jeff had a first look in the barn surrounded by their family and friends.  It was gorgeous and her expression as she made her way to see Jeff was priceless.  Soon they were to meet again, this time down the aisle.

The ambiance during dinner was simply exquisite.  Fairy lights and lanterns filled the room with a glow as the jazz band played over the party as they enjoyed a delightful meal.  The dance party was put on by Kara and Jeff as they were the MC’s and had a premade soundtrack for the night.  I’ll admit, I was slightly nervous not seeing a DJ but they had that barn rock’in all night long.  They knew their crowd like no DJ ever could and I was impressed for sure!    Congratulations to Kara and Jeff!

Alexis and Christopher
Ocean Gate Inn Wedding, Southport Island, Maine

Alexis and Chris were married on September 9th at All Saints by the Sea in Southport Island, Maine.  Their wedding was truly a coastal Maine adventure as we started early in the morning at the Ocean Gate Inn where Chris and his crew were getting ready.  The day was crisp and clear with the gorgeous Maine sun streaming through the wooded forest and reflecting on the ocean.  The guys were getting over what looked to be obviously a fun night prior and their spirits were high in anticipation for the day ahead.

Alexis was a couple miles down the road at her family seaside cottage.  The views of Boothbay Harbor were incredible as the girl’s hair and makeup were perfected before Chris was to arrive for the first look by the dock.   After the first look and some time for family photos Chris and his groomsmen made their way to the church by boat.  What a way to travel the island, in style!

All Saints by the Sea is one of the most unique churches I’ve ever seen as it is just a couple feet from the water and nestled in the deep woods.  It’s a hidden gem set on granite and preserved through the years likely with a bit of help from god.  The wedding was perfect and soon Alexis and Chris were married and heading back to the dock where their boat took them around the island to the Ocean Gate Resort.

At the Ocean Gate Resort the open aired pavilion was set up for the party while Northwood String quartet was setting the mood with some wonderful music.  The reception was perfect laid-back fun with comfort food, local craft beers and Holy Donuts for dessert.  Chris got on his newly learned Martin Guitar and serenaded Alexis for the first time as her husband.  Then the party started and the DJ mix was on set.  Dance moves were on display and then to top it all off the sparklers were lit and Alexis and Chris made their farewell exit with an incredible display of light.   Did I mention that it rained for about 15 minutes and a rainbow came out just as Alexis and Chris were in the perfect location?!  That was an adventure in Maine weddings like no other.  Here’s some favorites:
