Dave + Libby | Point Lookout | Northport, Maine Wedding Photographer

I first met Dave and Libby during their engagement session in Portland last year, and it was one of the coldest and windiest days of the season. Thankfully, their wedding day was the total opposite! It was a gorgeous, warm, and sunny day on the summit at Point Lookout. This day was full of so many great stories, dances, and happy tears…quite a few happy tears actually! It’s hard to pick what I would choose as a personal favorite memory from the day. When I think back, what comes to mind is the laughing, good times, and Libby’s propensity to DANCE. So glad that Dave and Libby chose me to capture their big day, and I hope you enjoy revisiting the memories through the images below. Be sure to check out the full proofing gallery as well, SO many photos!

At one point when I went to take some pictures of her dress, I was slightly alarmed to see some of it coming apart! As discreetly as possible, I mentioned it to a bridesmaid, and mom got right on with the repairs! Wedding day crisis averted!

It was time for Dave and Libby to exchange their gifts, which may have triggered some tears…

I went back to find this humorous scene as the bridesmaids helped to bustle the dress. Once they were done it was time to kick off the intros! Much in line with Libby’s style, she was dancing her way down the halls - perfect opportunity for a photo op. Finally, it was time for a toast with her girls at the bar!

Just as dinner was being served, I noticed that while sunset wasn’t officially for another hour, the sun was just falling below the treeline. I’m thankful Dave and Libby were willing to pause on getting their dinner, to run out for a few shots as these are my favorite of the day!

As it was getting dark, it was time to bust out the sparklers and light sticks! A fun little exit followed by some more partying on the dance floor!

Ted + Jessica | Point Lookout | Northport, Maine Wedding Photographer

With temperatures reaching above 90 degrees, you could certainly say this was a hot one! It was no doubt an intense day up on the summit weather-wise, with thunderstorms predicted and uncertainty whether the ceremony would be outside, as originally intended, or not. Shortly after I arrived, skies quickly became ominous, but thankfully cleared up when they needed too! Ironically, when I met up with Ted and Jessica for the engagement shoot, it was one of the coldest days of the year haha. While their wedding day may not have been the coolest day or the year, it was a fun one! I’m looking forward to sharing these captured images, and hope you enjoy reliving the day through them!

These were certainly some of the meanest looking skies I had seen in a while, so I made sure to run out just as it started to rain and capture the beautiful flowers on the arbor lest they be marred by the impending downpour. Farmhouse Floral did such beautiful work, and thankfully, they all survived the brief storms before the ceremony!

First Look

With everyone ready to go, it was time to head outside for the first look and some wedding party photos pre-ceremony!

After some time in the hot sun, it was time to jump back in the AC and relax for a bit before the festivities began.

Love this shot below of Jessica’s flower girl holding her dress! :)

One of the cutest things I’ve seen in a while was this little girl sitting on the lawn just watching everything as it unfolded. She sat there the whole time and just soaked it all in!

Ted and Jessica shared vows that they had written each other(always a special touch), and with that, they were married! It was time to grab and signature cocktail and mingle with friends and family

At the end of cocktail hour, we did the quickest run ever down to the beach for a few more photos as the guests transitioned to the pavilion. So glad we did this as the B+W photo with the old Cadillac at the top of this post was one of my favorites of the day!

You knew things were getting serious when Ted took off his shoes for the first dance! They put together a fun mix of dances to make it their own!

With that, it was time for Living Room Circus to get the dance floor moving! Jessica’s brother is the drummer and some of the other guys are siblings with one of my past wedding couples. Playing alternative rock hits from the 90’s-00’s was like listening to my radio as a kid. Good times!

After one of the band’s sets, we snuck out for a few quick post sunset snaps, and them left them to party the night away!
