A cold April day on the coast of Maine – Anna and Ethan’s closest family gathered around them seaside in York, Maine to watch the two become one. I can’t wait to share this Nubble Lighthouse micro wedding on the blog today!
I met Anna 11 years ago during my first year of college in Southern Maine. Her warm soul radiates the moment you meet her. You instantly feel welcome and loved being around her. I can honestly say she is probably the kindest person I know. She has a heart of gold. If I was to describe her in just a short sentence it would be: low-maintenance, heartwarming, and a little bit quirky. Similarly, that is exactly how I would describe their seaside micro-wedding at Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine.
As their immediate family snuggled up around them, one of her best friends officiated the ceremony, another close friend did her makeup for her and helped reapply in the parking lot as the tears streamed down her face after the ceremony. Being part of this intimate time and getting the opportunity to photograph my college roomie and her person was truly such an honor.
Their unique touches added so much personality to their special day. Anna’s jewelry was heirloom family pieces. They wore matching socks and sandals. They rocked some awesome sunnies and a personalized denim jacket. And they even had custom sugar cookies designed with their name and the lighthouse. The cookie showcased their personalities so well!
Being that it was a mirco-wedding, my time with them was short and sweet. But during that time we captured the ceremony, family portraits, and just married portraits along the shore. It wasn’t until the last ten minutes of their portraits that we started getting rained on. But no fear, I always carry clear umbrellas with me in case of some rain!
Check out how adorable they are!
