Maine Lakeside Cabins | Wedding Photography


Ashly & Carl married at Maine Lakeside Cabins in Caratunk, Maine on June 29th. Ashly got ready in a beautiful cabin with her closest family and friends. They married in front of Kennebec River, which was the pretty backdrop I have ever seen. After spending a little bit of time with the ladies, I made my way down to the venue itself and spent some time with the guys and the guests as they arrived. It was a really sweet moment when I saw a cute pair sitting together in the chairs early. Soon, every chair was filled, and the ceremony went as planned! Ashly’s grandfather married the couple as well as designed all of the florals, I was so impressed by his craft. After the ceremony, the bridal party snuck into the building and waited to for some guests to make their way to cocktail hour. The bridal party then came around from the back of the building for formal portraits by the water. The reflection of the beautiful Kennebec River and the trees and setting sun was every photographer ideal setting.

As with any special time in someone’s life, hugs are really important, and I always try to catch any that I see. I was so glad to see so many hugs, smiles and laughter at this wedding. Many generations of family, and lifelong friendships were celebrated with Ashly & Carl.

After we did formal portraits by the water, they had dinner and listened to some beautiful speeches, followed by some dancing and beautiful, emotional moments. Many tears were shed when Ashly danced with her father and when Carl danced with his mother. The love and feelings in the room were overwhelming, everyone was crying watching this couple celebrate such a HUGE day in their lives and soak in every moment together.
