Classic Maine Wedding with a Glam Twist

Coastal Maine is high on my list of favorite places in the world, and this sweet couple felt the same. They rounded up their nearest and dearest for a dreamy seaside wedding with an unexpected touch of glamour, dressing bridesmaids in sparkly metallic shades to set the tone. Emily Delamater captured all the fun now at your fingertips in The Vault.

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.

They settled on a destination wedding in Maine, and brought on Emily Blake to tell the story of their day. Watch it all unfold in The Vault.

From The Bride… I fell in love with Josh at first sight. I was working part time at the Prudential Center Vineyard Vines store when I was a senior at BU, and he came in to buy a tie – the rest is history. We knew from the first moment we would be together forever.

When it came time to plan our wedding, we knew that we wanted a destination wedding, as neither of us is particularly connected to our hometown. We had traveled to Maine a few times together as a couple, and both felt totally at peace there – the state motto is “Vacationland,” and it’s the perfect way to describe the feeling of Maine! We found French’s Point through Style Me Pretty, and immediately knew it would be the perfect venue for our wedding. All of our vendors were truly the best of the best, and we couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out.

The vision for the wedding really began with one key element: our crest. We worked with the amazing Kearsley Lloyd to have our custom watercolor crest made, and it really defined the rest of the look and feel for the wedding itself. The color palette was made up of gray, cream, and green, all of which looked so beautiful with the natural landscape around us. Based on Kearsley’s design, I actually designed and needlepointed Josh’s belt myself!

The day of the wedding, the weather was absolutely perfect – not a cloud in the sky. The ceremony was set on the green lawn, overlooking Penobscot Bay with 180 degree ocean views. I walked down the aisle to a beautiful acoustic version of Train’s “Marry Me,” and I was in tears from the first note. The ceremony was so meaningful and full of so much love – our rabbi told us afterwards that she couldn’t believe how present we were.

The reception was also held at French’s Point, inside the tent. The wedding party, as well as Josh and I, walked into the reception wearing foam Vineyard Vines whale hats as a fun nod to where we got our start. It was the perfect, easy, relaxed evening we had hoped for – guests ate, drank, and danced the night away.

Josh and I put so much love into every detail of our wedding, and it turned out to be the perfect celebration for us.

Tucked away along the coastline of Maine lies a wedding where contemporary coastal glamour reigned supreme. Beginning with the lobster rehearsal dinner, this French’s Point affair is filled with hundreds of gold sequins, oyster shells, rain drops and a whole lot of love.

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.
