Ian + Emily | 1774 Inn Wedding | Phippsburg, Maine Photographer

Ian and Emily are one of those couples with which I just instantly clicked. I had the pleasure of meeting up with Emily last year for coffee and we had a great time talking! Soon after, I met Ian at their engagement session and have been looking forward to their wedding ever since. These two are simply perfect together. It sounds cliche when couples are referred to as “best friends”, but it is so true here! It’s also a blast to capture them as it’s just non-stop joking around and laughter. You’ll see that laughter as a common thread throughout their wedding photos, which made me constantly grin when reviewing the images from the day. I’m so excited to share these photos from their awesome wedding day at The 1774 Inn and hope that you enjoy them as well! Thanks for coming!

Their wedding ceremony incorporated some amazing music by the Penobscot Bay Ringers, which is a bell choir that both Emily and her mother take part in! It was wonderful not just for the ceremony, but to enjoy as they practiced in the hours leading up the nuptials!

While the day was robbed of sunset with thick fog rolling in, it wasn’t going to stop us from getting some cool shots! After dark, we spent some time around this historic property, and used any space we could find! I especially love some of the final shots in the parlor, as we went for some more “old time” classic portraits!
