Thank you so very much to the amazingly talented Amanda Herzberger of Orchard Cove Photography (and second-shooters Brian Fitzgerald and Sarah Waldo) for sending us today’s featured affair. I am in love. To say the least. For those of you that share my sentiments, here are a few more bits of eye candy for you to feast on!
Isn’t this wedding just perfect? Elegant, understated designs. Thoughtful but incredibly chic details. A bride that literally lights up a room when she smiles. I so so so wish that I was a guest at this wedding at Migis Lodge, as I kind of think that every couple fell in love all over again. And the kiddies? Well, they had some fun too…
Lots and lots of love to Rachel and Will…we hope that your lives are as beautiful and as full as this incredible day!
It’s funny. I seem to fall head over heels in love with every wedding that we post on SMP. I know that I throw a lot of spirit sprinkles and high kicks into my my posts, but oddly enough…I sincerely mean it. And this wedding, is one of our best. Filled with perfectly thoughtful touches, elegant but unbelievably humble details, a bride and groom that are literally glowing…it is MORE than high kick worthy in my book!
Rachel & Will’s wedding receptions took place at Migi’s Lodge (about 45 minutes North of Portland, ME), where most of their guests were staying. According to Amanda, this place was “pure magic”!
Ahhh, those centerpieces. Long rectangular tables were decorated with vases and mason jars of all shapes and sizes filled with both full arrangements and single stems. Rachel had purchased them on the last day of the Brimfield Antique Show (which if you are lucky enough to live in New England, is AWESOME). Table numbers were identified by a simple pine cone and dragon flies were made out of sticks and leaves to add a little bit of charm.
I am in love. Giving my hubby a kiss as we speak. This wedding is just heaven…and lucky you! We have so much more from Orchard Cove Photography on the way!
I heart this wedding. I heart it so much that it just might have sky rocketed up to my very favorite wedding thanks to it’s complete, unabashed charm. The amazing, amazing, amazing Amanda Herzberger shot the photographs that have completely brought this day to life…making me SO wish that I was there, so wish that I was a part of this incredible celebration.
Here are a few little tidbits for you to fall in love with…first off, that GORGEOUS Pronovias dress. The bride had the train trimmed off and had her tailor (French Bridals in Beverly, MA) create the flower out of the remnant. As for the decor, Rachel and Will wanted a simple, woodsy, relaxed affair.
The chapel was at the camp that my father went to as a kid and where our family vacationed for my whole childhood. I remember watching the late summer weddings from the back of the chapel with my sister when we were very small. It felt like a full circle to be standing up front next to Will with our friend’s children whispering in the back just like I did many years ago.
Our favorite part of the wedding was when our friends began playing & singing Here Comes the Sun as we walked out of the chapel.
My one piece of advice…Don’t go crazy with the details. Select a few that you are passionate about and have fun focusing on those. Don’t overschedule your day. Give yourself time to enjoy being surrounded by your friends and family.
