Photographing this backyard intimate wedding in Eliot Maine was so much fun! When you’re planning your Maine wedding, the best locations are the ones that mean something to you as a couple. For instance, your wedding location could be a place you have visited or a town that holds a special meaning. This intimate wedding took place at the Bride’s Grandparent’s house located in Eliot, Maine. Surrounded by immediate family this couple tied the knot and were off to their new life as husband and wife. All backyards are not created equal and this one was full of charm and carefully curated garden’s by the Bride’s grandfather. Everywhere I turned on this beautiful property I saw an adorable spot tucked away perfect for wedding portraits.
For wedding details, the Bride’s mother put on her crafty hat. For example, she created her wedding cake and provided some adorable wedding favors that matched the Bride’s unique style. In another creative twist, she gave the bride and groom some new home decor to remember their wedding day going forward. I love a non traditional wedding so this one was definitely fun to photograph from the Bride’s unique floral wedding gown to the custom jewelry including the ‘Sword in The Stone’ / Heart of the Ocean’ bridal rings. Here are a few highlights from this wedding day….
