Devan + Kelly | Maine Backyard Wedding | Litchfield, Maine Wedding Photographer

I first met Devan a few years ago at his brother's wedding, which incidentally was right when they had first started dating and when his family had just met Kelly! I always look forward to being at weddings with people I have met before, and this was no exception. It's also an honor to know that you did a good enough job last time around to be invited to capture another family member's wedding haha! Just like Brandon and Briana's wedding, Devan and Kelly threw a huge backyard party planned with over 300 guests!!! The day certainly didn't disappoint with plenty of laughter and goofing around, and we had amazing skies to boot! Everything from clear skies, to moody clouds, and then finished off with some of the clearest night skies I have ever had. This particular party was located right in the heart of "Eatonville", AKA Devan and Kelly's home, which has gone through an extensive amount of reconstruction. I can't imagine the amount of work that went into prepping the property for the day, but it was perfect! Not at all to my surprise, this wedding was a blast, and just full of emotion and joy! I hope you enjoy following the story of how the day unfolded through the photos. Thanks for coming!

I would describe Kelly as "giddy" almost the whole day. She had just the biggest smile and was so excited for her wedding day. I love this moment she had below with her dad for a first look. We got a couple funny photos of her crouched behind an SUV so he couldn't see her!

We had a good time recreating a couple of photos that we also did at his brother's wedding a few years ago where Devan held Brandon, and switched it up!
