Colony Hotel Wedding | Kennebunkport Maine

Heather and Ashwin were married in a beautiful, outdoor Colony Hotel wedding ceremony in Kennebunkport, Maine, June 27, 2015. We met Heather and Ashwin precisely one year and two days ago during their Kennebunkport engagement session. We’ve been waiting for this Kennebunkport Maine wedding day ever since!


During our off site drive with Heather and Ashwin for our artistic couples images (such as the above and many more to follow further below) we happened across these youngsters and their well-staffed roadside lemonade stand. A perfect place to stop for a quick refreshment – and of course a fun photo opportunity!

Some of our favorite moments come during the bridal preparations. Getting the bride into her dress is always fun, and good for a few laughs. This was true with Heather, her bridesmaids, and mother, above.

We loved the pastel bridesmaid’s dresses, and the groomsmen’s dove gray suits, below. Not to mention the fun socks.

The Colony’s patio is a perfect location for a wedding ceremony; guests overlook sailing and powerboats and one of the most gorgeous resort views in Maine. Just one of the many reasons to have a Colony Hotel wedding!

Above, Heather and Ashwin wisely chose to have an unplugged wedding, where their guests were asked to keep their electronic devices stowed away during the wedding ceremony. This way, guests are more attentive and able to enjoy the ceremony without distractions.Bridesmaids during wedding ceremonyBride and groom during recessionalBridal party toasting with champagneColony Hotel wedding reception details
