Carolena and Philip inquired about our availability the day after they were engaged (love that!). Once they decided on a venue, they locked in J as their photographer for their coastal I Do's at one of our favorites, Newagen Seaside Inn near Boothbay Harbor (a quick hour and 20 minute drive from Portland, if you don't get stopped in the Wiscasset traffic at Red's Eats, that is!). We love Newagen's darling rooms and cottages, the squeaky screen doors and vintage bikes, breath taking views and of course, the Pine Room (old school bowling alley and pool table for swanky after parties). It's a great retreat for your guests to come and linger a while (think Dirty Dancing), and the wedding operation is top notch.
Kate Martin of Beautiful Days helped the vision come to life which included a first look, fabric surrounding the ceremony site to symbolize the home, an alternative Chuppah; drummers brought in for the reception that the couple had heard in the NYC subway, and yummy fall treats display of pies and cookies. Wishing Carolena and Philip great luck as they move across the country to San Diego this week!
Quite a backdrop for toasts!
