Exquisite Maine Elegance at Hidden Pond Kennebunkport

Dustin and Mallory were married on a fall day in Maine at beautiful Kennebunkport. These two met thanks in part to their love of vizslas as well as some friends nudging this love connection along. Their romance led to an impromptu trip to Maine where they fell in love with Hidden Pond, in particular, Earth – the onsite restaurant. They adored its blend of ease and intimacy. It was this trip that planted the seeds for the wedding to come.

It’s easy to see why they fell for Hidden Pond. The grounds are lush and full of gardens and lovely greenery; rustic elegance in every corner. Preparations for the day were well underway with ladies helping Mallory with dressing and her final details. Her dress was stunning with an equally gorgeous full bouquet. The gentlemen gathered together as well, enjoying good conversation and laughs while straightening ties and pinning flowers.

Feeling both intimate and warm, the ceremony was a balance of organic elements and touches of woodsy whimsy. With lanterns lining the aisle and under a draped floral archway, the bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of their loved ones. It’s not a surprise that these self-described ‘bourbon loving southerners’ know how to celebrate. Wooden tables laden with thick greenery and full blossoms complemented the elegant and romantic atmosphere. Surrounded by amazing food and a phenomenal dance band, Mallory was right, ‘black-tie doesn’t mean boring’! This tightknit group sure knew how to celebrate enjoying every last second with the newlyweds. We hope you enjoy their highlights as much as we did capturing them!

Thanks so much to David Murray for the lovely cover photo!

A Chic City Wedding at the State Room in Downtown Boston

Elysa and Keith exchanged vows on June 11, 2016 at the State Room in historic downtown Boston. Surrounded by history & culture, Elysa & Keith wanted to celebrate their marriage in the heart of the city where they met and live. What better location than the quintessential State Room offering sweeping panoramic views of the city they love. Elysa’s spent quality time getting ready with her nearest and dearest in preparation for one of her favorite moments of the day, the first look. She recalls savoring the moments leading up to and during the first look where they enjoyed the first glimpses of each other and a quick private moment. Reminiscing on the day, Keith confessed his most favorite part of the day was Elysa walking down the aisle towards him.

Their love for hosting was evident with a sweet and elegant ceremony blending cultures and families. Intimate candlelight complemented by walls washed in warm light made for a stunningly beautiful reception. Friends and family gathered to toast, celebrate, feast, and of course, dance the night away. They are especially excited to share the highlights with Keith’s Grandmother who was unable to attend the festivities. Truly a good time was had by all. Please enjoy the highlights as much as we did capturing this lovely June day!
