Boothbay Harbor, Maine is one of the quintessential coastal Maine backdrops for a perfect summer wedding. Anyone marrying along the coast dreams of blue waters, sunny skies and balmy nights. Laura and Eric’s dreams came true for their wedding celebration this past summer. A short boat ride from Boothbay Harbor is Squirrel Island where Laura’s family has been summering for generations, her mom and dad grew up next to each other in the summertime! The ceremony was on a perfect beach surrounded by Laura and Eric’s nearest and dearest with cocktails following on the Danforth’s lawn overlooking the island of Squirrel and the surrounding waters. The wedding crowd then boarded boats to Boothbay for the party to continue at the Newagen Seaside Inn. The setting was a dream…the last light of the day made the Sperry tent shine while the full moon rose over the trees. Classic seaside blues with hints of orange were the color palate with special details and decorations displayed through out the tents. Laura’s mom Janet was a crafter after my heart and her boundless energy and creativity were so inspiring! There were so many fantastic images captured by Geneve Hoffman that it was hard not to include them all!
I LOVED creating Laura’s flowers! Classic seaside with the added modern pop of tangerine orange…and the sparkly flip flops are the perfect wedding shoe for a seaside party!
It was a flip flop kind of day and the fans definitely came in handy.
Laura’s nephew (the cutest ring bearer ever!) was more interested in his truck than the ceremony – boys!
All aboard! Laura and Eric and their wedding party took the special Nellie G back to Boothbay after gathering all “Squirrels” for a group photo.
Could the day be any prettier!? The Newagen is such an amazing setting and the Sperry tents were the cherry on the top!
Details, details, details…sand dollar escort cards, more pops of tangerine in the centerpieces and table numbers, the best cake I’ve ever tasted and a gorgeous custom engagement portrait guest book by Geneve.
Did I already mention the full moon?!
The night ended with plenty of dancing, the Squirrel tradition of serenading the bride and of course bowling and late night noshing in the Pine Room at Newagen.
Congratulations Laura and Eric! It was truly an honor and pleasure to be a part of your celebration! Wishing you many more beautiful days!
