Bar Harbor Maine Wedding Photographers/ Leslie and Logan

Wedding Photographers near Bar Harbor

I'm so happy to share the beautiful wedding day story of Leslie and Logan through photos! I met with the couple only a few weeks before the day for their engagement session. Getting to spend that time with them had me feeling so fortunate that they had also chosen me to photograph their Bar Harbor, Maine wedding. They opted for an intimate wedding with their closest of family and friends. Leslie came across the option to marry at The College of the Atlantic when googeling Maine wedding venues. I had been to the campus before and always thought it would make a great spot for a wedding ceremony. The buildings are castle-esque, you can see French Men's bay from most of it, and the grounds are unique and covered in flowers.  I began my day with them at the Turrets building where they were getting ready in separate rooms.

Their two flower girls were so sweet and curious. It was a lot of fun to capture them.

On one of the building Leslie got ready with her family and friends. There were many sweet moments. From this little pep talk with her mother to the flower girls joy seeing Leslie in her dress.

Then it was time for the ceremony! There were lots of tears and smiles. It was quite the treat to photograph the bridal party walking down an aisle that included such a dramatic staircase.

 I love this picture of Leslie and Logan moments after walking down the aisle. They look so happy!


Then it was time for formal portraits. Like I said before, the grounds of the College of the Atlantic are a wedding photographer's DREAM. For all the reasons I listed above and the fact that there are just so many places that work well for pictures. The high trees offered open shade and spots where the light comes through just right.

Then it was off to Bar Harbor Lobster Bakes where the couple and their friends and family feasted on amazing lobster, haddock, and steak.

Leslie's mother created the bouquets and the cake. These toppers are among my favorite of all time. The bow tie on the starfish kills me.

During the dinner there was lots of laughter and some tearful speeches. Their sweet flower girl said some very nice words and then used her dress to wipe her tears! Love that moment.
