After the ceremony guests fueled up at a snack station and downloaded a custom app Erol made for a scavenger hunt throughout Kennebunkport (we were able to check the leaderboard as we traveled around taking formal photos). And at the beginning of cocktail hour, Ashleigh skirted into a private room and changed into a second wedding dress, a surprise for Erol and total delight to capture.
Even unplanned surprises seemed fitting for this pair, like when Ashleigh's veil caught a floorboard in the old summer chapel as she was walking up the aisle with her father and fell out. It put everyone at ease, and helped her hold back her tears, she later said. After the ceremony it started to rain lightly, but these two weren't deterred. Pulling on Bean boots and rallying the troops, we braved the deteriorating conditions for formal photos at Goose Rocks beach and then made quick stops at two other favorite spots nearby.
Ashleigh and Erol, it was such a pleasure to spend the day with you both and your incredible families and wonderful friends. I adored getting to know you (and swapping snacks in the Bentley like school kids) and look forward to crossing paths again soon. Keep surprising each other! xoxo
