When I heard about Lauren and Andrew’s wedding day plans I was so excited. They had chosen the Camden Amphitheatre for their ceremony and the Whitehall Inn for their reception in Camden, Maine. Joel and I also had those two venues for our wedding, so I always jump at the chance to photograph at either of them. This was my first time photographing a ceremony at the Amphitheatre and it was such a joy to be back there witnessing another couple join their lives together.
I also got to work with the fantastic Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls! Sarah and I had collaborated on two styled shoots before, but never a wedding. Sarah is also a Whitehall Inn bride, so it was incredibly fun working with Lauren as two former brides who had already gone through the process.
Sarah helped Lauren and Andrew create a gorgeous vintage travel themed wedding that blew me away. You’ll see that I’ve shared a lot of photos of their reception details below. I loved it all!
Here are my favorites from their day!
Lauren and Andrew created adorable gift bags for their guests containing some Maine staples, including Moxie.While I was upstairs with the ladies, Joel hung out with the guys in the lobby of the Whitehall Inn.Next, we headed to the Breakwater Lighthouse in Rockland for a first-look!Then, it was time for the ceremony at the Camden Amphitheatre.We spent some time at the library, amphitheatre and harbor across the road for portraits.There happened to be a Civil War reenactment going on, so Lauren and Andrew asked if we could grab a shot with some of the men in uniform. I was definitely game! They even let Andrew borrow a hat and sword!Then, we headed back to the Whitehall Inn, which was filled with the most gorgeous reception details.I loved that the table names were airport codes.There was also a fun groom’s cake to go along with the gorgeous wedding cake from Sweet Sensations.After some formal dances and speeches, we headed outside for some final portraits in the soft evening light.Then, it was back inside for the cake cutting and some awesome dancing.
