Like so many other couples, Colette & Spencer had plans for a big 2020 wedding that were interrupted by Covid. They shifted gears, and in February 2021, traveled to Maine with a small group of loved ones to elope in Acadia! A few things made this wedding very special for me– first, I was born & raised in Downeast Maine so traveling back to the Bar Harbor / Acadia area is always a homecoming for me. But more importantly, Colette is my husband’s cousin, so it was so special to be able to witness, capture and be a part of this family celebration!
Colette & Spencer got a beautiful, sunny day in February for their Acadia National Park elopement. They exchanged a first look, then we toured ALL over Acadia for an afternoon of photos in the park (shout out to my husband, Mike, who was our driver for the day!). We started at the classic stone bridge at the carriage paths at Eagle Lake, then drove to Sand Beach, stopped to overlook Otter Cliffs along the Park Loop Road, then hit a secret spot in the woods in Seal Harbor. These two were absolute troopers being out in the cold, but SO worth it! Then we headed back to the Saltair Inn, where these two exchanged vows, toasts were made for the newlyweds, they shared the first dance, then we celebrated with an intimate family dinner. It was pure microwedding winter wedding perfection if you ask me.
