Camden, Maine is such a picture perfect setting for a Maine wedding and I was so thrilled to provide the wedding flowers and be the day of coordinator for this very special celebration. Shawna and Tim were married in the gorgeous Camden Public Library amphitheater followed by an amazing wedding reception at the Camden Harbour Inn. Read on to take in all the beauty and fun!
What a view! David Murray captured the mood of the wedding morning perfectly. And how chic is the Inn? At over 100 years old it’s been brought into the 21st century with modern touches and luxurious details while still being true to it’s history.
While it rained on and off all day somehow the misty sun came out just at the right time. I literally watched the weather radar during the ceremony showing rain to the north and south of us…Shawn and Tim had the only sliver of sunlight on the coast! The bride and groom said their “I do’s” under a birch arbor they made which I decorated with dogwood tree clippings and soft green vines.
As always David Murray captures all the moments perfectly!
I adored creating Shawna’s bridal bouquet! She wanted something elegant yet earthy, lush with a bit of wild..I used white peonies, green hydrangeas, mini calla lilies, flowering dogwood, false orange and ferns…perfect for this early June wedding.
The Inn had this amazing large buddha hand sculpture on the porch and I couldn’t resist hanging my offering of a floral garland. The flowers through out the inn and on the dining tables were textural, a little wild, a lot of green, with pops of red and purple.
The Inn’s sun porch was used to showcase the amazing blue grass band, High Range, that played during the cocktail hour.
The Inn served an amazing cocktail style dinner with five different food stations -each one delectable! Really the food is amazing but guests also indulged in family made sweets and treats. Following cocktails and dinner DJ Steve Carrigan took over and Shawna and Tim and their nearest and dearest celebrated into the wee hours of the night. It was truly my pleasure to be a part of it!!!
