Wedding | Benjamin & Erin | Sullivan, Maine | Part I

Wow, just wow!

This is going to be a constant post of wow’s – fair warning!!

Brandi & I met this couple late last year, as they were planning their Destination: Maine wedding!  This was to be our second in a row Destination: Maine wedding, and we couldn’t be more excited.

After meeting this couple, we just couldn’t wait for June 29th to photograph their wedding, and seriously – they did not disappoint.  The wedding was amazing – just WOW, amazing!

It was a photographers dream – filled with details, emotions, beautiful people and wonderful locations.

Details – did I mention details?

Let’s begin our journey with Erin’s jewlery:

She thought of every detail – even the hangers.  One for her, and one for each of the bridesmaids.

Ok, future brides & grooms – pin this picture, because it has to be one of the MOST creative idea for a ring barer pillow that I have ever seen in all our years of photographing weddings.

A book – with a hollowed out section – for the rings.

In Love.

Like for real!

In an effort to get some of the photos out of the way early – Erin & Ben opted for a first look.

Such a great time.

Erin certainly had no qualms about being seen before the ceremony!

The Island View Inn, where the ceremony was has two amazing balconies and Erin made her grand entrance from the top-most balcony.  After she created the crowd of course!!

You may have seen one of these pictures on our Facebook page.  Raygen and Drake made the cross country trip with Erin & Benjamin and they both were able to attend the ceremony and have a nice family picture after!!  Raygen watched every second of the ceremony, and Drake… well, not sure where he ended up!

If you are an avid follower of the blog, you know that we usually have a pretty good order to things.  You see the details, the getting ready shots, then the ceremony in the first post…
Well, I had to change things up a bit.  I couldn’t show you all the details at the reception with the regular details… and well, really I couldn’t wait to show you the reception details in the next post – I had to post them NOW.
They went ALL out for the reception.  It was magazine stunning!
Love it!
First off the tent.
This has to be my absolute favorite tent EVER!
And let’s not overlook the official logo of the wedding G^2

Each table was perfectly set, and then had an antique water pitcher – each one different, beautiful flowers and some other antique item.  Loved each one!

I think the scale was my favorite antique item!
And you can’t overlook the sign for water – Good Maine Water!

We are just so in love with this wedding and this couple.
Planning a wedding from a distance is hard work – but this couple and their family pulled it off.
Thankfully we have one more post to share with you on this wedding!
