From the Bride… When we visited Rancho Las Lomas we immediately fell in love with how gorgeous it is, with the Spanish style architecture surrounded by lush botanical gardens. One of our favorite things about the property is that it is also a wildlife foundation that is home to some unique animals, including a white tiger! The venue has so many little details that make it a beautiful and exciting place to explore and we knew that it was the perfect setting for our wedding.

After deciding to have our wedding at Rancho Las Lomas started on the details that would make our wedding special. When trying to decide on colors, I wanted to make sure that they harmonized well with the colors of the venue. Around Rancho Las Lomas there are beautiful painted tiles, lampposts, and cobblestones that inspired me to choose a dusty blue and blush pink color scheme. I wanted the flowers to be whimsical and romantic so I asked my florist to have things like berries and thistle mixed in for added color and texture.

When I was looking for a photographer, I had a certain style in mind, and when I found Christina from Hello Blue Photo I knew that she was the right choice. The way that Christina uses the natural light creates a soft and romantic look that I wanted for our wedding photos. She also uses both digital and film photography to beautifully capture her images. Looking back, one of the best things that happened on our big day was that we were able to stay relaxed and enjoy our time together because of Christina’s warm and friendly demeanor. Picking Christina as our photographer was definitely one of the best choices that we made!

Boho Meets Elegance For This Maine Island Inn Wedding

Once you visit Maine, there’s no going back. Its magic sinks in and you’re in love for life. Hence why these two decided to say “I do” among its natural beauty at the historic and charming Chebeaugue Island Inn. With the ocean in the background and greenery all around, Emily Delamater captured these cuties and the love that overflowed. Get ready to get pinning (these petals!) in our Vault right this way!

From the Bride… Having both vacationed in Maine growing up, Harrison and I knew it would be the perfect place to celebrate the next step in our lives. We looked at a number of venues along the coast, but as soon as we stepped foot on Chebeague Island, we fell in love. The historic Chebeague Island Inn offered stunning views of the Casco Bay, coupled with chic onsite accommodations (for her), a delicious restaurant, and even a 9-hole golf course (for him). It was a place where our guests could escape, stay onsite, and take part in all of the weekend festivities – a vacation for everybody involved. It is also a place we knew our family would continue to visit for many years to come.

There is a distinct vintage, coastal vibe that permeates the property – the 1920s building has great architectural bones and captures the best of Maine’s unassuming charm. I largely drew inspiration for our color palette from the faded florals of the Great Room upholstery – soft, neutral, and feminine – accented by the blues of the ocean water, lush greenery of the landscape, warm yellow of the building’s façade, and shades of turquoise from the colorful porch ceiling. We wanted to highlight the subtle beauty of the island and create a feeling of relaxed elegance mixed with a little bohemian nonchalance – timeless, yet youthful and fun.

Our wedding was a true family affair filled with DIY adventures. With the help of family and friends, my mother collected all of the milk glass from thrift stores up and down the East Coast; Harrison’s parents built our custom corn hole boards and visited salvage yards to hand-select the wood they painted for our signage; and I finally challenged myself to learn calligraphy, something I had long wished to do, so that I could write the invitation envelopes and escort cards. Style Me Pretty was one of my key resources during the planning process, helping me to discover many of the talented vendors with whom we ended up working. Maine also has an incredible network of wedding professionals, and the best piece of advice I have for brides-to-be is this: identify your top priorities for your wedding day and then work with a team you admire and trust to help make that vision come to life.

Our wedding day was without a doubt one of the most relaxing days we have shared as a couple. Everything came together, but more importantly, Harrison and I were together celebrating our love and commitment to one another with the support of our dearest family and friends. We are so thankful for the love that surrounded us that day and cannot wait until our next trip to the island!
