Stephanie + Marc — Maine Backyard Wedding – xo, CoCo

 

 Artsy backyard Maine wedding

Oh. My. Goodness. What an amazing weekend this was! I am so excited to share this with everyone. Stephanie and Marc are people of many talents. Marc is a composer and sound artist, Stephanie a photographer, sculptor, and writer, among many other things I’m sure :) They are thoughtful, caring, and stunningly beautiful, inside and out. Watching Stephanie’s face during Marc’s speech, and their expressions and interactions with each other and their guests throughout the weekend was such a joy. It was obvious that despite the beautiful flowers, clothing, jewelry and scenery, the most important thing to them was the people, family and friends alike. That’s what we like to see.

I apparently brought rain with me to Maine, the night of the rehearsal it was absolutely pouring. But Stephanie was unshaken, I met up with her briefly before the rehearsal in my boat shoes and yellow rain jacket, both already soaked through, and she excitedly exclaimed “You fit right in!” The dinner was held later that evening at The Slipway in Thomaston, the staff was great and the lobster to die for!

There were rain jackets and hugs aplenty during a short cocktail hour.

Stephanie’s dress was gorgeous! I couldn’t wait to see what she had for wedding day!

Stephanie’s simple and stunning dress bought from Spoil Me, what an awesome name for a bridal shop. (More on the upcoming details post!)

Sooooo Marc needed Stephanie to do his hair for him…without seeing her…So naturally, Stephanie’s sisters just put a blind fold on him!

Stephanie’s sister Caroline made this birdcage veil for her. I think it completed her look perfectly.

Krista was my second shooter for the day and grabbed these two shots just before the ceremony started. The guests were arranged in a semi circle around the couple, in the sprawling backyard of the house, it’s like  sculpture park out there!

One of my favorite family portraits, ever.

As I said Stephanie is an artist of many mediums, she draped the ceiling of the barn with gorgeous colorful fabric and lanterns. It created such a fun atmosphere.

I caught these kids being silly towards the end of the night, one of my favorite candids from the day.
