I got up early Saturday morning, packed the car with my gear, and headed up to Katie and Cam’s wedding high in the mountains of Western Maine. It was a departure from my usual seaside venues, and it was a truly inspiring change of scenery. I love to shoot at new venues, and Sunday River was new to me, it did not disappoint. Saturday was one of those days we’ve been having lately that can’t decide if it’s going to storm or not. There were some very severe thunderstorms predicted, but thankfully they did not really materialize and we only saw a few brief showers. What the storm system did provide us with however were really dramatic clouds; a photographer’s dream!
Their ceremony was held at the base of the mountain on The Artist’s Covered Bridge. A trolley and a bus shuttled guests dramatically down the mountain for the ceremony, and back up again afterwards for their reception at Slider’s Restaurant. It was good to see the familiar face of Joe Dionne there as DJ, and I had the pleasure of working with florist Heather Rouillard of The Flower Girl for the first time. Each flower in Katie’s bouquet had special significance for family members who had passed, in order to keep them close at heart. I loved the look of the overflowing bouquet of wildflowers, it felt very true to the mountain backdrop.
As promised, here are 100 photos to tell the story of this memorable day! Congrats Katie and Cam, I hope you’re having fun driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road in Ireland!
