Dove Grey French’s Point, Maine Wedding

This Style Me Pretty-loving Bride and her Groom have one of the cutest love stories you’ve ever heard. She, a college student working part-time helped him, a handsome customer, pick out a tie at the local Vineyard Vines store…and the rest is history. 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. Flora Fauna worked their blossoming magic, and I think you’ll agree Rebecca Arthurs captured every sweet moment beautifully.

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.

Click here for the FULL photo shoot!

From Meagan of Maine Seasons Events Inspired by the texture and feeling of a Swiss dot wedding dress, this design started with a palette of robin’s egg blue, pale peach, raw muslin and gold. When collecting elements and props, old gold framed mirrors, cake stands and plates, the look came together with yards and yards of pale blue and raw muslin, which Maine Seasons Events sewed into fluffy ruffles to adorn the tables. Against an heirloom estate backdrop, gold ballroom chairs, a crystal chandelier and crystal stemware added glamour and sophistication to the table scape. Luscious flower arrangements and bouquets by Flora Fauna included the spring’s best picks of tulips, anemones, David Austin roses and delphinium, arranged in an eclectic mix of gold and pale blue glass containers. Custom letterpress stationery from Gus & Ruby Letterpress adorned with hand painted edges and tulle posies from Paper Posy Designs, along with a ruffled tiered cake from Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott, completed the glamorous look.
