I had the honor of photographing Jesse's & Trevor's wedding at the Village by the Sea in Wells Maine.
Right from our first correspondence I knew that their big day was a going to be just lovely. They were very focused on each other and their love from the get-go. Everything else about their day was secondary to this. For my part, most of our communication was done by email as the couple traveled to Maine for their wedding day. This wasn't exactly a destination wedding in Maine as Jesse is originally a native of Wells.

When I arrived to Village by the Sea I could see that the couple had paid careful attention to each detail making sure that both grooms were represented in their union.
These lighthouse wedding invitations are a perfect reflection of this.
The village by the sea in Wells Maine offers lovely gardens and green area for ceremonies. Everything was in bloom and the sun was shining! They couldn't have planned a more perfect day. The ceremony site is surprisingly private and the location is ideal due its proximity to the beach! Guests who stay here can enjoy all that coastal Maine has to offer.
Love this photo of mom and dad walking down the pathway. They look so proud don't they?
I love how they kept the wedding simple with a wedding party of two close friends. My own wedding was much the same.
Ahhh the grooms, look at their excitment!
The ceremony was led by New England Wedding Officiant Heather Rose. Follow her on Instagram at @Hrosemakesitoffical. She did such a great job! She clearly loves her work and how could she not. She gets to share in the happiest day of her customer's lives.
The vows were so touching I found myself getting caught up in them. I think I smiled ear to ear this entire evening.
The rings, it's official!
Just look at how happy they looked walking back down the isle as newlyweds!
We kept our portraits quick and simple as we had planned a beach shoot with just the two of them for the following evening. You can see those photos here
Village by the sea posted a sweet message for the couple at the entrance.
The reception was held just behind the ceremony on the patio.
The couple served cocktails and passed appetizers for guests.
Inside the tables were set elegantly with bold red and blues.
Again I love how they incorporated party favors to represent each groom.
The cake looks just delicious with a nautical theme perfect for our proximity to the ocean!
I love how bright and sunny the reception room is at Village By The Sea. It makes the reception feel so cheery and happy doesn't it?
The first dance was so fun! They decided to change it up and dance to a fast song rather than a slow song and it made everyone smile.
At the end they invited everyone up from their seats to join them on the dance floor.
Trevor danced with a close friend followed by the mother son dance with Jesse.
This young man couldn't wait to hit the dance floor! He had moves, let me tell you!!!
I'm kind of in love with the sunlight pouring in here in this shot.
Along with cake the couple had a scooped ice cream cart! YUM!!!
Congratulations Jesse & Trevor. Thank you so much for selecting me to document your wedding day!
