There’s something special about Labor Day weekend here in Maine. Summer isn’t quite over yet - the warmth of August days linger and late evening sunsets are still to be enjoyed.
It was no different for Robin and Michael’s wedding on a perfectly calm and beautiful Sunday.
Lindsey and our second shooter for the day, our dad (who is a very stellar photographer by the way!), arrived to the private property in Brooklin where all of the festivities would be taking place. Maybe we’re biased growing up in the area, but Downeast Maine is by far one of our favorite places on this earth, so it was quite clear from the moment we arrived that the day was going to be incredible for Robin and Michael.
And it was certainly that from beginning to end.
The personal touches by the bride and groom and family alike were constant throughout the day. Robin’s dress was in fact two separates with the flowy skirt made by a family friend. We just had to get some twirls in with that thing and it was pretty much amazing. The calm, yet fun vibes as the girls were getting ready in the bright upstairs of the main house were an indication of the closeness and happiness that existed between Robin and her mom, sisters, friends, and newborn niece.
Robin’s sister did a meaningful, if not tear-worthy reading during the sunny ceremony overlooking the ocean and of course, their dog Bella Donna was included as flower girl.
Their couples photos were very important to Robin and Michael, so we made sure to have plenty of time to take advantage of the all of the beautiful locations on the property. And it was SO worth it to take our time, have fun, and take the time to relax before the party really began.
The reception was certainly a party and tough for us to leave as darkness crept in. The band was keeping the dance floor packed and the sunset was spot on with Blue Hill in the distance across the bay.
