Places I've Photographed: The East Wind Inn

The next venue I'd like to talk about in my "Places I've Photographed" series is, The East Wind Inn in Rockport Maine. I photographed Hannah and Katie's wedding there last summer and have nothing but good things to say about it! Weddings at the East Wind Inn are intimate, bright, and cozy. There are many reasons to consider having your wedding there, but like in my posts before I will sum it up in 3 of my favorite things about the sweet venue.

Wonderfully lit Dining Area and the food. The dining area at the East Wind Inn has many large windows making it perfect for photos. Also- they have their own kitchen and amazing menu! I can speak from first hand experience that the food there is delicious!

Many beautiful spaces in one spot. You could get ready, get married, have your dinner, and host your reception all at The East Wind inn. The one location has many different areas and each area has a different feel to it. So while they are all together it seems as if you go somewhere else with each transition of the day. The rooms for getting ready, the harbor overlooking the water (I'll talk about this in my next topic) for the ceremony, the beautiful deck for cocktail hour, the dining room for dinner and then the Quarry Tavern (located on the bottom floor) for drinks and dancing.

The harbor. The East Wind Inn sits on a beautiful harbor overlooking the ocean and many cute boats. People bring their chairs out to sit and watch the amazing sunset. It's PERFECT for the sunset photos that I love to take my couples out for. I had so much fun photographing Katie and Hannah out there. This spot was within easy walking distance of the inn.

A huge part of what I love about being a Maine wedding photographer is that my job takes me to beautiful corners of Maine to find gems like The East Wind Inn. I hope to photograph their again one day. If you're looking for a venue for your wedding I would highly recommend it!
