A Rustic Maine Wedding at Linnell Farm

It’s always an honor to be chosen to document wedding days, but maybe especially so when the clients are photographers themselves. Eliza and Nick met in photography school and are both talented photographers themselves, so I was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their beautiful September wedding.

They got married at Linnell Farm, a lovely little property up in Maine. There’s a gorgeous barn, fields for days, and expansive views – basically everything you could want at a farm venue.  The day of their wedding was sunny and warm, with just the coziest autumn chill once the sun went down. Eliza started the day getting ready in the farmhouse with her bridesmaids while Nick hung out in the barn. Then, surrounded by their family and friends, a rustic ceremony backdrop, and dozens of red balloons, these two were married by one of their close friends. Afterwards, guests enjoyed lawn games and cocktails while Eliza, Nick, and I explored some ferns and trees for their portraits. Also, can we talk about how Eliza looked like a magical forest princess in her flowy blush wedding gown?

After the cocktail hour, everyone had dinner and dancing in the barn, which was decorated beautifully with harvest tables, greens, and mismatched vintage plates. Eliza’s cousin even made the couple’s wedding cake, which was one of the most beautiful ones I saw all season!

Aside from the gorgeous decor and setting, my favorite part of the witnessing this wedding was seeing the connection between Eliza and Nick. I mean, the way these two look at each other… You can’t be in a room with them and not notice how much they adore one another.

Eliza and Nick – thank you for having us at your amazing day. And thanks to Jess for second shooting this one with me.
