There is no place like home to celebrate a twelve year love story … it is where it all began for Jenni + Josh.
Guests arrived by trolley and were greeted in the long driveway with a champagne bar before heading into the garden for the ceremony. A true Maine cocktail hour kicked off the celebration with a jazz trio, oysters, adirondack chairs along the seaside. Dinner and dancing was held in an outdoor “room” built into the cliffed point of the property with scenic views as far as the eye could see. An elegant family style dinner was enjoyed and followed by a naked tiered champagne cake. (Who doesn’t love a wedding bookended by champagne?!!)
The day’s design was very classic in nature but a modern twist on coastal chic – clean lines, mixtures of patterns and textures, hues of blue with surprise pops of color and metallics – all carefully selected to compliment the landscape.
Everyone danced into the night under a ceiling of stars on the floor of waves. The supermoon and s’mores kept them company at the late night bonfire on beach.
There is no place like home. There is no place like home. There is no place like Maine.
