Texas meets coastal Maine. Caitlin and Jake were stationed in the desert of Texas and planned a destination wedding to Bar Harbor, Maine. With Jake’s roots in Maine and their love for the coast, they found that the Bar Harbor Inn was the perfect place to celebrate with their friends and family.
The day started early with hair and makeup by the talented Brittany and Julia. They glammed the ladies up and incorporated some custom hair pieces created by Little Red Flower Truck, who grew and designed all of the one of a kind floral arrangements throughout the day.
While guests gathered at the nearby Catholic church in downtown Bar Harbor, Cailtin and her ladies slipped into dresses with different shades of blue, and tan shawls to tie together the coastal feels.
After their traditional wedding ceremony at the Holy Redeemer, guests were shuttled back to the Bar Harbor Inn just a few minutes away where they indulged in delicious hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails named after their pets. We did portraits all around the grounds of the inn and along the Shore Path before they entered their reception right into their first dance and parent dances.
Just because this was a mid-day wedding, there was no shortage of dancing and good times once the dance floor opened up.
Fun fact: Caitlin + Jake share a love of adventure just like me. We did their engagement session on one of their trips to Maine, and it ended up raining for the majority of the session but they completely embraced it and had fun with it. AND during my road-trip around the country in 2022, they met me at White Sands National Park for a fun adventure session playing in the snow like sand of New Mexico! (will link those sessions later)
