Acadia National Park Wedding

Acadia National Park Wedding

Acadia National Park Weddings About a year and a half ago, Faith wrote me an email asking if I worked as far north as Bar Harbor, and Acadia. The fact is, I used to live in the Bangor region, and traveled to Acadia often. I have many memories there with a little one, with good friends, and even one of my first weddings a few years ago. I remember looking at the phone as I realized that she was calling from South Carolina. It never ceases to amaze me how many people across the country have an attachment to this beautiful state of ours way up north. It took me years to get here, inching closer north over time until I found home. As I began to talk with Faith, I learned that she and Michael were from Charleston, one of the country’s top destination wedding cities, and where another friend of mine just moved to be closer to his work with those weddings. But the pull to be in the high lands near the sea is strong for those of us that have experienced it. It turns out that Faith and Michael, who have been together for 7 years, visited Acadia National Park in 2012. During the course of their wedding day I heard many stories of their explorations, then hopes of a nearing engagement, and all that established such strong memories that they would return, this year, with 18 close family and friends, to have their wedding at the top of Cadillac Mountain. Joining me was none other than Kate Crabtree, a fantastic photographer in her own right and willing to lend a hand. Together the four of us took an hour and a half to run through a few amazing landscapes in the park before retiring to the Bar Harbor Inn for an intimate evening dancing on the upper deck while the sun set. It was a rather amazing day. Congratulations Michael and Faith.

Acadia National Park Wedding

Acadia National Park Weddings Have your Maine Wedding in one of the most stunning locations in Maine One of the undisputed jewels of New England, Acadia National Park encompasses over 47,000 acres of woodlands, seacoast, lakes, and mountains. Its Cadillac Mountain is the tallest mountain on the east coast, and during certain times of year is the first place in the United States to greet the sunrise. The park is open year-round, and its spectacular scenery draws enthusiastic visitors from all over the world. Hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, camping, kayaking, climbing – you name the outdoor activity and Acadia has it. Or try a horse-drawn carriage tour along the 45 miles of specially-constructed carriage roads. Acadia is also a great place for artists and photographers, or just sitting and quietly contemplating the scenery. And don’t leave without having lunch, dinner, or afternoon tea at the Jordan Pond House overlooking the famous Bubble Mountains! In this exceptionally beautiful state of Maine, Acadia may well be the most beautiful place of all.View the Acadia National Park Wedding Photo Gallery

Acadia National Park Wedding

Julia and Gregg were married on a mountain, on a Tuesday, surrounded by family and a thick layer of fog. When they got engaged, they knew they didn’t want to go the traditional route, and wanted to keep their wedding small. They decided to get married on Cadillac Mountain while their family vacationed in Acadia National Park and (lucky me) they invited me to join them. I stayed with Gregg’s family in a lodge on the bay and spent a a few days documenting the time leading up to their wedding (and eating seafood). This wedding was a dream come true for me. I always create my best work when I have a strong connection with the people I’m photographing, and having the opportunity to spend this kind of quality time with a couple and their family was such a game changer. And you know, being in Maine in June wasn’t too bad either. Bar Harbor, ME.
