Oh my goodness... where do I even start.
This wedding day was SO dreamy and beautiful and Lizzi & Caleb were beyond wonderful to work with. Not only that, but I feel a little like I've just been let in on a little wedding secret in Houlton with this venue!! This venue is absolutely one of my favorites, not just in The County but the entire state. It's GORGEOUS, and I can't believe it wasn't on my radar.
When I arrived, Lizzi was floating around with a sense of absolute calm and control over the day. Nothing seemed rushed or chaotic and it was so enjoyable! After my hellos, I got to work on her details. I found Lizzi's beautiful wedding gown, and quickly discovered that it was the heaviest wedding gown I have ever carried. True story! The multiple layers underneath added quite a bit of weight and volume! It was so incredibly beautiful, though, and just perfect for the gorgeous bride. I am still swooning over Lizzi's details from those green ring boxes to those Badgley Mischka heels... ugh, it was all so good! I always love this part of the day so much. After a visit with the guys, everyone was ready for the first look.
It was important to Lizzi that she have a first look with both her brother and Caleb, so that's exactly what we did! First up was her brother Ed, and it was so sweet. Next up was Caleb! He waited in the barn, facing in as Lizzi made her way to her future husband. She paused, then called his name and as he turned to face her his eyes instantly lit up with pride. It was so great! Following the first look. Lizzi and Caleb stood back to back as they quietly read the letters they had written one another.
Not long after this sweet moment, the rain came and shifted plans a bit. With the exact same sense of calm and control Lizzi projected in the beginning of the day, she quickly shifted plans and moved her ceremony inside. Their ceremony was perfect, and soon they were finally husband and wife.
Following the ceremony we headed out in the rain to make the best of the situation we had and you know what? I LOVE the end results! There is something so carefree, fun, and downright romantic about wedding portraits in the rain...
Congratulations, Lizzi and Caleb!
