So good to be back at one of my favorite wedding destinations in Maine! Sunday River and the whole Bethel/Newry area have such beautiful scenery and having your wedding on top of the mountain is a blast! I enjoyed connecting with Dave and Erin when they originally booked and we discussed how much we both enjoy to travel. These two are all about going on adventures together, so what a perfect spot to get hitched, right? We certainly couldn’t have asked for a more comfortable September day, with clear skies and temperature of fall starting to set in. So glad I was chosen to capture this day, and I hope you enjoy reliving it!

We started out the day at the covered bride in Newry for the first look and wedding party photos. Dave arrived to help “dress” their dogs for the wedding ceremony.
For groomsmen gifts, the boys were given these awesome custom engraved axes with their names on them. There was one groomsmen though who maybe shouldn’t have been entrusted with sharp objects…haha
After some photos at the Sunday River Bridge, it was time to jump on the chairlifts for a ride up to the North Peak Lodge , where the guests were waiting! Dave and Erin opted to write their own vows, bringing both tears and laughter to those witnessing. Dave’s vows “a.k.a rules” were a particularly amusing touch!
Oops! dropped the ring!
After enjoying cocktail hour and a few last sunset shots with those amazing views, it was time to head in for the intros and first dance. Dave and Erin clearly had put some work into a rather elegant first dance!
Those pastel sunset colors and view of the mountains just get you every time!
With all of the formalities done, it was time to party!
Thank you Dave and Erin!
