Early Morning Bar Harbor Engagement Session

It’s no secret that Bar Harbor holds a seriously special place in my heart (it is after all where my husband proposed), so in all honestly this engagement session is primed to be my new favorite. Combining a love for nature with the lens of Emily Katharine Photography, it’s serene meets seriously sweet and we’ve got every bit of the beauty waiting for you in The Vault!

From the Bride…We love the outdoors, and we so appreciate the natural beauty of our national parks that we wanted to do our engagement shoot in one of them. Since we only had a couple days to get away and we’d never been before, we chose Acadia because of it’s proximity to Washington, DC, where we live. We wanted to celebrate Acadia’s unique charm of being the first place the sunlight hits the continental U. S., so we did our photo shoot in the morning after watching the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. We were not disappointed!! We loved getting to capture our special moments in such a gorgeous place where we felt at home in the outdoors, and Emily and Thomas made the entire engagement session not only easy, but fun! We feel like we went on a mini-vacation with old friends and now have beautiful pictures to share!

From the Bride…We truly wanted a wedding for people to remember. From the unbelievable venue, to the band, food and decor. Picking the right vendors and people to help us was key, and made everything easy! People left saying it was the best wedding they had ever attended. We really focused on the “big white wedding” color scheme, we wanted to have a plush, luxurious feel with pops of navy and metallic champagne golds.

What was really important to us, was the immediate “wow” our guests would have when walking into the tent. We wanted to make a statement with swaging, drapery and beautiful lighting to accentuate the incredible coastline view of Maine outside the tent.

Our favorite moments were the last few hours of dancing, there have been so many weddings we have been to where there is only a few people on the dance floor. We had 100% participation of the entire wedding, moving and grooving on the dance floor having a great time!

The flowers were a large part of the elegant feeling we wanted for the tent, from the little roses tucked into napkins on the place setting, to the large lush center pieces on each round table…our flowers were incredible. Plus, our bouquets were stunning, we had little pops of blue with the anemone flower, clustered with roses and mini calla lilies. Our ceremony was held overlooking the water at 3 pm and knew that we could have some reflection off the water so we gave all of our guests some fun sunglasses favors, with our colors (navy and white), with the quote of the side saying “don’t be blinded by our love” with out names and wedding date. They were a hit and people wore them all day and night, and I am still getting pictures of people using them in their everyday lives. My gown was one of the easiest parts of the wedding. I wanted something a little sexy, but elegant and comfortable. I feel as though I am a little sassy, so the slit was perfect for that, as well as the comfort…it allowed me to move and even keep me a bit cooler on that hot Fourth of July weekend day.

I would tell any bride-to-be to start planning early. If you have the time, use it…because most people (so I have heard) are stressed the week before their wedding, even into the day of their wedding. I had none of that, I enjoyed every minute because I made sure to space out every single piece of planning, and I could not have done it alone. My partner through the whole process was Heidi from SHE Luxe Weddings was so on top of everything, so the schedule we made together kept us on track and stress free.
