Maine Summer Solstice Wedding | Harpswell Maine Wedding Photography

Oh, Krysten and Robin, your Harpswell, Maine summer solstice wedding was so magical! We’re still pinching ourselves today, we can’t quite believe it was real!

Where do we even begin? Let’s start with the setting. A beautiful, tiny, peninsula in Harspwell, which was the perfect wedding venue! The tide was coming in, and it was a bit cloudy and overcast (perfect for wedding photographs!). Three tents from Coastal Maine Canopies enclosed the lovely, shingled home, surrounded by beautiful, lush flowering gardens. A woodland path, lined with rocks and shells, led to the ceremony site, in the woods at the edge of the shore.

Secondly, there was the small, close-knit group of family and friends that stood under the canopy of trees. Krysten and Robin, read their hand-written notes of heartfelt, poetic words paying tribute to family, friends, and each other. Light-hearted and fun-loving, grateful and emotional. There was a hand fasting ceremony, binding them together, symbolizing their commitment and devotion to one another.

Then there were the toasts! Fun, funny, punny, witty, and tender. So much love, adoration, and admiration for Krysten and Robin in the lovely, intimate setting.

And, lastly, the dress. Have you ever?? The bodice with it’s beadwork, the layers upon layers of skirts that moved and swirled. It was artfully and thoughtfully stitched by Robin’s mother, Heather. It was incredible!!

Krysten and Robin, we immensely enjoyed your whimsical Harpswell, Maine summer solstice wedding, more than we can say!

Also, we can’t forget about the beautiful wedding cake that was lovingly baked by Krysten’s mother, Debra!
