Fairytale Wedding | Norumbega Inn | Camden Maine
When you think of a fairytale wedding, what images come to mind? Castles with turrets? Horse-drawn carriages? A beautiful bride in a long flowing gown? A groom in black tie? Maybe all of the above? We were the photographic team to capture just this very kind of real-life fairytale wedding last spring at one of the most perfect of locations, the Norumbega Inn in Camden, Maine. Picture the bride and groom having just been married and being shuttled off by horse-and-carriage as this opening image portrays:
A romantic bride-and-groom couples session could not possibly, for this fairytale wedding, be any better scripted than to have two gorgeous Belgian draft horses pose so stately with them; a stark contrast in some ways to their soft, relaxed glamour, but also a perfect fit and compliment to the look we were seeking with bride Annabelle and groom Luke.
To say that the food was exquisitely prepared would be a dramatic understatement. Norumbega Inn co-owner Phil Crispo is a professional chef, a former instructor at the Culinary Institute of America, and a Chopped! champion from the Food Network.
