Sarah and Dan poured personality into their gorgeous Maine summer wedding. They are full of DIY spirit and created loads of fun, personal touches: Awesome lawn games (gotta love ginormous Jenga!) and a lobster boat puzzle guestbook, the most lovely hand-lettered seating plan on salvaged windows, centerpieces that nodded to a familial love of scuba diving….oh, and did we mention their transportation?
Sarah and Dan win the prize for the most unique wheels we’ve seen at a wedding! Sarah rode to the ceremony with her dad in a Studabaker Avanti while Dan cruised in a ’69 International Scout (which he refurbished himself and drove up all the way from Virginia, no less!)
They were the first couple to ever have a wedding ceremony at Mitchell Field in Harpswell (chosen because it was a symbolic landmark that reminded Sarah of feeling safe and being close to home on childhood sailing trips ❤ ) In fact, Dan and the fellows donned ties featuring nautical charts of the location, created by Coastline by Anne Zimmerman. And one more new one for us: a unity pipe fitting, a nod to Dan’s engineering profession, was incorporated in the ceremony. As you can see, Sarah and Dan are full of talent and love!
Here’s a glimpse at their day!

You might recognize these two awesome people from their Boston Seaport Engagement session, it’s Allie and Hunter! Here’s a peek at their Portland, Maine Wedding Day!
Allie and Hunter married in the Chapel at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, a cozier space within the Cathedral, that’s light, airy and beautiful for a ceremony!
Following their vows, we all hopped on a bus and headed to various locations throughout Portland to create some fun portraits. We made stops in the Old Port and at the Eastern Promenade (we even saw another wedding about to start…which also happened in Boston during their engagement session 😉
Allie and Hunter chose to have their celebration at The Portland Club, a historic mansion in the heart of the West End which was perfect for their classic wedding! The Black Tie Company took care of all the details for the day, from the moment Allie walked down the aisle, to the amazing food and drink, to the last dance. Speaking of dancing, the Jim Ciampi Band made sure the dance floor was packed…at.all.times!!! So fun!
We have to give a shout out to Rene Roy, who came along with Tim and I as a third photographer! Thanks Rene!
Here’s Allie and Hunter’s Day! Enjoy!
Congratulations Allie + Hunter! Thank you for having us photograph your amazing day!
