Beaver Lodge Wedding •Anna+Jason• Hope Maine Wedding Photographer

Anna and Jason got married in a place close to our hearts….Beaver Lodge, the very same place we tied the knot ourselves 5 years earlier! Beaver Lodge is a funky and charming lake side lodge in Hope – nestled between Union and Camden/Rockport – perfect for a rustic, outdoor Maine wedding.

Anna and Jason’s paths crossed back in the fall of 2008, when, according to the newlyweds:

Anna sat sipping a mocha latte on a Saturday afternoon typing a paper for graduate school at a coffee shop in Inman Square. Jason strode into the cafe wearing a pink button down and proceeded to sit across from her and write furiously into a worn blue notebook. The rest is history…

Their engagement story is a fun one, and made it into the toasts at the wedding. As told by Anna:

Jason took me out sailing on the family boat on the Cape one Saturday afternoon. It was a clear, warm June day. I tried to invite his sister along for a sail, but she was pulled away by his mom to check out new Toyotas, so we ended up on the boat ourselves.  We were sailing along peacefully when the boat stopped moving. I didn’t understand why, but later learned it was low tide and we ran into a sandbar. While we were perched on the sandbar, Jason pulled a little black box from his pocket, and opened it to reveal a bright gold and diamond ring with a green ribbon trailing from it for safekeeping.  He popped the question, I said YES, of course! And then he secured the ring in the boat’s cabin and dove into the water to push us off the sandbar. He acquired a nasty ‘boat-burn’ in the process, and I was so flabbergasted I didn’t help one bit!

Here are images of their lovely, fun filled day! Enjoy!
