Kathryn and Alex traveled from Mississippi (Ole Miss alums and die hard fans!) to get married in front of the iconic Portland Headlight. As a Maine destination elopement photographer, this was right up my alley and after months of planning, I was delighted to finally meet them and their parents. Kathryn and Alex were beside themselves with happiness and excitement, and their parents could not have been nicer. You know when things just “click”? Well, this was one of those times!
Kathryn chose her favorite three images from her Maine destination elopement. Here they are, in no particular order, and in her own words ….
after marriage bliss
This picture reminds me of how happy and blissful we were right after the ceremony. It couldn’t have been in a more perfect setting and we were just so happy to be husband and wife.
This picture is one of my all time favorite pics. It shows the beautiful setting as well as my dress, bouquet, and veil. We have it framed in our house. Jane did a beautiful job capturing everything including this moment.
the masked groom
Just looking at the picture reminds me of how fun the day was. My parents rented a limo for us and we all wanted to ride together so I made him wear a blindfold all the way to the ceremony. His reactions to things happening on the ride were hilarious and we still laugh about.
If I had to choose one word to describe this Maine destination elopement, that word would be intimate — which is why I am in love with this particular wedding! However, choosing just one image as my favorite is a difficult task. Here are my top three…
the happy bride
Kathryn was so very happy on this day, and this smile/laugh makes me remember perfectly what this lovely day was all about. Plus, she’s gorgeous, yes? (on the inside as well!)
This was both a fun and sweet moment. The high five with the bouquet screams YES!!! … and then looooook … he’s holding her dress! It just makes my heart go pitter patter!
love and lighthouse
I love this wedding portrait for many reasons. I see their happiness and excitement for starting their future together. The iconic Portland Headlight is in the background so for a Maine destination elopement, nothing could be more perfect. And the third element that makes me love this photo is the yellowish greenery (is that even possible???!) in front. One of my favorites for sure!
Plus, I was delighted when I was contacted by Maine Weddings and they used one of my images from this elopement on the cover (as well as several on the inside!). I was thrilled!
