Erika and Mark's seaside nuptials at the beautiful Spruce Point Inn were lovely, even tho heavy fog kept the stunning views under wraps.
I have photographed many weddings at SPI, so each time I go I try to find something new and different. I spotted these mini plates on the bikes for the inn's guests and thought it was a perfect detail for a destination Maine wedding.
After having her hair and make-up done, Erika and her bridesmaid head to the room to get dressed.
Admiral's Quarters is my favorite room to photograph a bridal party's preparations. There is a lot of beautiful natural light, and plenty of space for everyone to spread out.
The two flower girls are cousins, but acted much more like sisters.
They did their best to behave and sit quietly inside before the ceremony.
Mr. and Mrs!
Soon after the ceremony, Erika and Mark ditched their formal shoes and opted for flip flops. Erika's sister took plain, J Crew white flip flops and glued Swarkovski crystals to them for Erika!
Erika really wanted an Adirondack chair photo. It was so sad that you couldn't differentiate the sky from the water in front of them!
There were many sea-themed details, including the wedding rings presented in a shell.
The cake by Sweet Sensations had edible shells decorations, and the sand on the table was actually sugar!
Erika's mom quilled their wedding invitation. Pretty amazing, isn't it?
I love a good laughing toast photo!
The flower girls were inseparable at the reception. Too cute!
Congratulations, Erika and Mark! Thanks so much for making me feel so welcome at your wedding. I already miss your families! I can't wait to hear all about your honeymoon! Come back and visit when you are in Portland anytime!
