From A Family Affair Of Maine… This charming sweetheart inspiration was designed with whimsical woodland features, accentuating the copious beauty of Maine winter. The backdrop is a pastoral setting in an 1870 built farmhouse that carries a rich history and eclectic mix of modern and vintage furnishings. Incorporating various shades of red symbolizing love, we represent an old fashioned St. Valentines day in true New England fashion.

Our Bride is dressed in a vintage antique lace Victorian wedding gown paired with a fur stole wrap and leather gloves. Her soft curls are adorned with a spray rose, ranunculus and wax flower crown.

The Groom wears red plaid and bowtie, warm grey wool and suit jacket. His boutonniere is composed of privet berry, ranunculus, wax flower and spray rose. Our table scape design involves a recycled barn board table with unique white post legs, paired with two vintage mahogany high backed chairs with bright red velvet seats. Laser cut wood plates adorn each chair signifying seating for the Bride and Groom. White benches are made warm with dark fur blankets for the wedding party. Red velvet cloth runs down the length of the table, and is a beautiful canvas for the immense and stunning floral design consisting of roses, amaryllis, ranunculus, wax flower, privet berry and viburnum. Brass candle sticks hold various shades of candles to add to the romance and color scheme, while dark antler sheds accentuated the woodland vibe. Each of the vintage etched glass plates were further complimented by warm brass chargers with rattan detail. The place settings were personalized with custom laser cut pinecones and handmade rosemary wreaths set atop vintage napkins. White milk glass wine goblets were paired with antique crystal.

The wedding cake was a smooth ivory fondant embellished with a hand crafted red rose cluster with deep green vines and a single intricate antler. The Bride and Groom initial cake topper was machine cut acrylic with a wood grain technique and enveloped with a wood carved frame.

The outdoor ceremony was created with intensions of evoking a feeling of warmth in the cold. A fireplace mantle bearing warm quilts, framed with the warm color of the floral garlands and brass elements helped to create a sense of passion and glow. Bridal portraits on a vintage wood framed sofa in the snow and a bold wool sweater conceptualizes all the ways the color red embodies love, romance, excitement and affection.

From Rebecca Arthurs… Julie & Bryan’s wedding was a magical day filled with hundreds of gold sequins, oyster shells, rain drops and a whole lot of love. Maine has always held a special place in both Julie & Bryan’s hearts. Who wouldn’t love the beauty, serenity, and close proximity to fresh, delicious lobster! As a long-time oyster lover and blogger, Julie designed the wedding day to be evocative of “Manhattan meets Maine.” Where contemporary, big city glamour meshes with charming, pastoral coastal living. When you see the photos I think you’ll agree Julie pulled it off perfectly with the help of Meagan from Maine Seasons Events & Rentals! Judy of Flora Fauna crafted amazing florals and Chavelii from Key and Quoin rocked out the cute signs you’ll see.

Even though the rain wasn’t part of the wedding plan, Julie & Bryan handled the surprises thrown at them with grace and enjoyed every moment of their amazing day. French’s Point, the wedding venue is on the tip of Maine’s beautiful coast, tucked away from the local hustle and bustle. The day before the wedding Julie & Bryan invited all their wedding guests to a lobster rehearsal dinner in a classic lobster pound.

From L. Hewitt PhotographyThere’s something charming and lovely about Maine, and I reflect on their rehearsal sail around Wiscasset now. The lapping waters, seafood that is practically pulled right out of the water in front of you, the setting sun and gentle breeze. It’s easy to see how Christina and Nishant fell in love there, and why they decided to celebrate their wedding in Maine.

These two have one of my favorite proposal stories ever.

Nishant surprised Christina with an unexpected treasure hunt. The search started at 5:30 am in New York City with friends and family, taking her to a weekend bag, a plane ticket and bridal magazines to read on her flight.

After finding a tiara, a gorgeous dress and shoes, and more clues from friends, she ended up at the Light house in Portland, Maine, where a dapper, suited Nishant waited with a photographer a garlanded setup, and a proposal.

Nishant and Christina wed on a beautiful summer day in Maine against the backdrop of the breathtaking lavender farm, Marianmade Farm, near Historic Wiscasset.

Christina is lovely and sweet; Nishant is dapper and charming. They brought the grace and chic of New York hosts and were a joy to watch as they demonstrated their love in stories about each other, and surprises for one another throughout the day. And the wedding was full of surprises; a surprise videographer, an Indian dance flashmob, gifts from Nishant to Christina. The bride and groom signs on the back of their chairs were surprises to each other, which kept Kate Martin, the coodinator on her toes. And to cap it off, there was a lovely fireworks display for their guests.

DIY details included toffee favors, programs, tossing petal bags, gold animals on tables and welcome bags.

From The Bride…For our wedding, Nishant and I wanted to create an elegant evening, but with a fun and relaxed atmosphere, not stuffy. Whimsical with a lot of soft colors. Set in a barn, but not rustic. Light, airy and most importantly, just a story of two people who fell in love.

From Emily Delamater… Lauren and Aaron are two of the sweetest and also the most beautiful people I have met in my travels. They just radiate with such love for each other and their families. It was an honor to be there with them on such a perfect sweet summer day, in an azalea garden by the sea…. With pale pinks and purples, gorgeous flowing florals by Alda Stich (also referred to as the flower lady) and a field of lupines in bloom overlooking the harbor at the amazing and historic Asticou Inn. It was really just too spectacular to be real. A gorgeous mix of seaside elegance and garden beauty.

Coastal Maine Inspired Wedding Invitation

Pretty paper goods are my jam.  No hyperbole intended… send me a crazy gorgeous invite and I’ll spend hours obsessing over it.  So this hand illustrated + hand painted invitation suite from Anticipate Invitations?  It’s pretty much my everything, and the perfect guide to a Maine weekend that is rich with coastal inspired goodies.  Soak in every paper paper captured by Kenny Kim right here.

From the Bride… Invites were so important because they were the first impact that people would see to lead them up to our wedding weekend. We wanted it to be about all the weekend events, not just the Wedding Day, as guests were making the journey. Studying architecture in college I have a deep appreciation for graphic design and was so excited to work on this important aspect of the wedding.

When we first started dating, Chris invited me to spend a summer vacation with his family in Maine. Being from New Jersey, Chris grew up coming to Maine with his family. Growing up in Chicago, I had never been to Maine, but loved the laid-back culture, great food (lobster!) and beautiful scenery. We went on a hike to find a gorgeous wedding being set up on the top of the mountain. Both of us shared later that we thought to ourselves… “Wow, what a perfect place to get married.”

Working with Michael at Anticipate Invitations on the stationery was one of the best parts of wedding planning. We wanted it to reflect the whimsicality of Maine, be fun and playful but still elegant, not be overly nautical but still sea-inspired. By having Michael hand illustrate and paint all the features, it added a level of personality that made our stationery that much more unique to us—something that will last for many years.

We spent every year after traveling to Maine for vacation, enjoying it more and more each year. Chris proposed to me right in the same spot we hiked up years before. It was the only place we ever imagined getting married at, and therefore we felt it was the most meaningful place for us to have our own wedding.

Most of our guests had never been to Maine so we wanted to showcase some of our favorite parts and places, why we love it so much. We wanted it to be about all weekend events and not just the wedding and truly wanted it to be a magical experience for our guests.

Guests loved the paper goods, and not only the invitations, but also the place cards, table cards, menus, weekend events booklet, and ceremony program… even the thank you cards and return address stamp! Having Anticipate work on all aspects gave continuity and truly once-in-a-lifetime memories.
