It was a cold cold day in Stratton Maine...but March in Stratton...that's how it goes! Ashley and Richard are use to the warmth, but they were troopers when it came to their beautiful winter wedding. Their friends, family, and love made the day so warm and bright. The Spillover Inn at Stratton Brook was the perfect backdrop for this sweet day. Ashley was amazingly brave getting on the biggest horse I've ever seen, for some epic photos. The Copland Co-op made some stunning floral arrangements! Thank you so much Richard and Ashley for letting me be a part of your beautiful winter wedding!
I get so excited when I have a winter wedding, I feel like winter doesn't get enough credit for be an absolutely amazing season to get married. Sure it comes with a whole lot more challenges...but Ashley+Isaac's wedding couldn't have been more beautiful. The snow storm the day before gave us a fresh new coat of sparkling white snow, and the only thing that sparkled more was Ashley + Issac eyes when they looked at each other. It was a day filled with laughter, happiness, smiles and love. The Loon Lodge was the perfect backdrop for this rustic, yet elegant, winter wedding. And as they stood in front of the fireplace and said "I do" surrounded by their closest friends and family, you could feel the love between them and surrounding them. The weather in Rangeley Maine is always unpredictable, but Ashley+Isaac braved the cold and passing snow squalls to take advantage of the pristine and unique setting that Rangeley offers. Congratulations Ashley+Isaac, thank you so much for letting Haven Photography capture your day, I don't think you could have found a photographer who was happier than I was to be able to play in the snow!

On a sunny and bright day, where everyone can't help but comment on the perfect weather, two people came together and surrounded by friends and family, said "I do!" and it was pretty darn perfect! Whitney and Ken are such an adorable couple who clearly bring out the best in each other and everyone on around them. It was such an honor to be able photograph at the amazing Harborside Hotel, nestled in the town of Bar Harbor (a place I will definitely be coming back to explore) with the Acadia area as the backdrop. But it wouldn't have been nearly as perfect without the couple that brought me to the area. It's safe to say that since photographing Whitney and Ken's Engagement session last summer at Reid State Park, and now their wedding, they have taken me to some amazing locations. Which sound just about right for a couple that got engaged in Rome (not the town in Maine, like Rome, Italy!). Thank you so much Whitney and Ken, you've been an absolute dream to work with!

Just when I think I've worked for the sweetest couple ever...the next couple comes along and I'm again blown away by how sweet, kind and generous they are. Marissa and Josh were no exception....they were ridiculously sweet and kind. Such a pleasure to work with, and holy gorgeous! Safe to say I absolutely love my job and it's because of people like these two. Josh and Marissa have actually been married for almost a year, because of Josh's work, but they still had the all the love and excitement a bride and groom usually have. They still make each other laugh and smile. And their eyes still filled with tears when they said their vows. Thank you so much you two...I absolutely adored getting to capture your love!
