Originally, Mekaela and Greg planned to get married in Acadia National Park. Mekaela had never been to Maine before, but they knew they wanted a picturesque location. However, after seeing Greg’s family home in Ellsworth, they decided to have the ceremony right there. It had a lot more meaning for Greg, and I think it really added something to the day. So, I joined Mekaela, Greg, and a small group of friends and family on a Thursday afternoon in Ellsworth, Maine.
Mekaela really wanted to do as much as they could themselves, and it definitely paid off. Wait until you see the gorgeous arbor they made! Also, did you see her dress above? I wanted to steal it, and get married all over again!
After a toast, and a lot of hugs, it was time for some portraits. The thing I love about small weddings is that there isn’t a strict schedule to stick to. Guests sipped champagne and mingled, and I had over an hour with Mekaela and Greg for portraits. Yay! We were able to wander all over the property.Mekaela is the cutest. She had us all laughing over and over.
After portraits, Mekaela, Greg, and their guests headed to dinner in Bar Harbor, and I headed home with a huge smile on my face. Thank you both!
