Oh my goodness, what a fun weekend this was!!!
On Friday night I headed down to one of my all time favorite Maine Wedding Venues for Sandra and Eric's rehearsal dinner. They planned an absolute treat for their guests, and had a lobster bake on the patio of the beautiful grounds of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and Event Center. So fun!! As guests started arriving it was clear how loved Sandra and Eric truly are, and just how excited their family and friends were to be sharing this time with them.
The following morning I headed back to the resort and got to work documenting all the wedding day fun. As always, I started with the details. Sandra made sure her day was custom just for them and she had almost her entire outfit custom made. Her gown, shoes... even her wedding rings! That is a surefire way to feel *extra special* on glamorous on your wedding day if you ask me. Once Sandra was dressed ( SHE. LOOKED. STUNNING.) we all headed over to Sand Beach for their ceremony.
Their ceremony was a small and intimate one just for family and very close friends. They were married on Sand Beach, facing the mountains of Acadia National Park. So romantic!!! Their children served as best man and bridesmaids and it was the sweetest thing ever. It was a beautiful ceremony officiated by Heather Rose, that sent tears of happiness falling down the cheeks of Sandra and several of her guests.
Following the ceremony everyone headed back to the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and Event Center for lunch and a bit of a break before their evening reception took place. The reception hall was beautifully decorated with purple touches, and the stage was perfectly set for a very fun party.
All in all, it was such a sweet and sentimental weekend that was just PERFECT for the bride and groom and their family. I am so happy they chose me to photograph it for them!
Congratulations, Sandra and Eric!
