It’s every wedding photographer’s dream to be able to photograph a beach wedding. Being a Portsmouth NH Wedding photographer – I am lucky enough to be surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. So I can say I was thrilled when I learned that Sarah & Damien’s wedding would be right on the one of Maine’s beautiful beaches – Goose Rock Beach to be exact ;)!
Our day began when we arrived at the resort to photograph Sarah & Damien getting ready to walk down the aisle. Sarah’s bridesmaids wore beautiful chiffon peach over the shoulder dresses. Sarah’s gown was a perfectly fitted white mermaid gown and she wore her mother’s wedding veil. Before the ceremony began, Sarah was surprised with a few gifts – a personal photo album from her bridesmaids and hand selected seashells from her Dad. After a few more glasses of champagne to ease the nerves it was time to head to the ceremony site.
Ocean Woods Resort in Kennebunk Maine transported the guests by trolly to and from the ceremony site right on Goose Rock beach. The beach is perfect for an intimate wedding – it is serene and picturesque. They couldn’t have asked for a better day or better weather. Damien was blown away when he first saw his bride – one of the best groom reactions I have seen this year! After they said “I do”, we took pictures along the beach while the guests were transported back on the trolly for cocktail hour. Damien and the boys had fun with the groomsmen pictures and really kicked it up a notch (see below). Once it was time to take portraits of just them, the light made for some INCREDIBLE pictures.
Sarah and Damien decorated the venue in a traditional beach theme – the place holders for the guests were sand dollars and their cake topper was a gorgeous white starfish which was a top a cascade of delicious cupcakes decorated with white chocolate seashells. They left little books on the table for guests to write advice and wishes for their wedding anniversaries on the years to come.
Sarah & Damien – thank you so much for letting me and Eric capture your wedding day!
