Nothing but beauty at Nonantum!

This. Day. Was. Beautiful.

First off we have to thank Kivalo for providing and sharing this incredible album with us. Honestly, it was hard to select an appropriate amount of “favorites” when downloading! Allen and Alyssa had the most picture perfect day and Kivalo absolutely got ALL the shots! From the stunning flowers put together by Watershed Floral to the delicious cake from Nothing Bakes Like A Parrot every little detail was thought out and perfectly organized thanks to Emily Elizabeth Events !

Nonantum Resort is set up with an amazing tent by our friends at Sperry Tents Seacoast. If you haven’t heard of this venue before we highly suggest you take a look at their website! Quoted directly from it “ The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine has been awarded as one of the best wedding venues in Maine for multiple years by The Knot and Wedding Wire. Spring, Summer and Fall provide unique backdrops for an ideal Maine destination wedding and celebration in our lovely setting. “ We totally agree and are happy to have played a role for Allen and Alyssas day here!

Allen had the sweetest caption on his Instagram post we simply had to share before we let you dive into the images “Wedding of the century. Married the love of my life and my best friend this past weekend. We are so unbelievably happy. Thank you to everyone who made it possible, especially my beautiful wife @alyssakinell who took a vision from her mind and turned it into our reality”

Best wishes to you both!

A talented vendor friend becomes a client!

Alfonsina + Jordan

This was such a unique wedding to us as the bride herself is a vendor we frequently work with! Alfonsina is always creating the most beautiful seating charts, menu cards, place cards, invitations and more at weddings and events we are supplying the rentals for! Her company AMR Callligraphy , is a “design studio specializing in custom modern-inspired stationery & calligraphy for couples who desire authentic, meaningful design “ .

With one of our favorite planners orchestrating the entire event, Nicole Mower , we knew this day would be nothing short of spectacular. Plus….. our clear tent really helped make this day a stand out! How incredible it is to enjoy the scenic gardens at John Langdon House while dining outside under our tent. We had the pleasure of having the incredibly talented Lindsay Hackney there to capture the day and provide these incredible shots! Funny enough we actually had a wedding with Lindsay AND Nicole the following weekend – so be on the look out for a blog post on that 😉

Enjoy the shots and be sure to note that outstanding seating chart made the amazing bride! HOW COOL IS THAT!?

Seaside Set up at Seacoast Science Center

Following an incredible July 4th we took the party to Rye for July 6th for Jasmine ansd Hunters special day! This is one of our favorite spots we are set up at, Seacoast Science Center states “Situated on the ocean’s edge, within historic Odiorne Point State Park, the Seacoast Science Center provides a unique and memorable setting for your celebration of a lifetime. The beautiful rocky coast is the perfect backdrop for your photographs and is sure to take your breath away. “

If you remember the day at all we were forecasted to have a pretty hefty storm roll through, Jasmine and Hunter were able to get a ton of shots outside during storm breaks and their first look came out beautiful due to the light sprinkle!

A seaside wedding can take on many different personas as far as décor and menu items but these two chose to keep it classic with a DELICIOUS lobster bake from our friends at Foster’s Clambakes and Catering !

Special shout out to Blue Locket Studios for capturing the day so beautifully and still managing to get all the incredible outdoor shots despite the weather hurdles! JUST CHECK OUT THAT TENT AT SUNSET!

Party at Hamilton House!

Tatum and Ben showed South Berwick how it’s done. Now this wedding was one for the books check out the photos below! They partied the night away under one of our tents. If you haven’t heard of Hamilton House in South Berwick this stunning venue has been the home to many fantastic events. With its waterfront location, beautiful gardens and historic architecture this venue is outstanding to say the least and we were so happy to have been chosen among this incredible vendor team!

Today’s Hamilton House landscape reveals its eighteenth-century mercantile roots, nineteenth-century agrarianism, and the Colonial Revival style that has evolved over the past century. Known as Pipe Stave Landing, this site is located ten miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Alpheus and Betsy Goodwin bought the property in 1839 to farm and produce wool. They planted orchards, fenced fields for their sheep, and built a barn.”

emilie inc captured the day and snapped some incredible shots of this fun couple under our tent! There were many heartfelt details including that that grooms grandfather was the officiant. Tatum and Ben chose to honeymoon in France and Italy (amazing!!) – hoping they had the best time and wishing them all the best for their future together!

“ Rain clouds couldn’t put a damper on Katie and James’ gorgeous and bright Hidden Pond Wedding. The couple’s love story began in high school and their next chapter continued on a Spring day surrounded by family and friends. A stunning and bold floral palette was created by the talented Minka Flowers. Guests were treated to delicious culinary delights from Earth, including delectable donuts. Following dinner Sounds Buono kept the dance floor crowded. The day was beautifully captured by LAD Photography.”
