This House Island wedding in Maine is the kind of celebration that leaves you speechless. Liz and Max rented the island with the sole purpose of not only saying ‘I Do’, they wanted a memorable three day celebration for their guests. With the help of Atlantic Water Taxi, Casco Bay Lines and Lucky Catch Cruises guests were easily transported to the island for all events. With Cairn Events by their side, the most epic wedding ensued.
After one incredible rehearsal dinner on House Island, the wedding day finally arrived. Liz looked breathtaking with a half up half down hair style by Hair That Moves and soft makeup by Beauty Muse Bridal. Rentals from Maine Prop House, and rentals plus a gorgeous clear tent from Wallace Events, transformed the lawn into the most stunning setting. Long family style tables were covered in beautiful linens by La Tavola with centerpieces bursting with color also designed by Cairn Events. The Event Light Pros knocked it out of the park with Edison bulb lights hanging on rustic branches creating the most magically lit tent. You will also see lots of pretty paper designs by Alina McGinty and Laura Marr Printing from the table numbers, to food signs, menus and so much more.
As guests sipped on cocktails and mingled on different lounge areas, they could take in the amazing water views from every angle and could also nosh all day as well as witness the incredible culinary skills of Dandelion Catering and Chabad Congregation. For a pick me up before the night ceremony Bard Coffee was on hand, creating some incredible coffee creations.
As the sun went down the ceremony aisle was lit with candles. I am officially head over heels in love with the idea of a night ceremony. Right after the ceremony, guests enjoyed a spectacular firework show by Central Maine Pyrotechnics, followed by a tapas style dinner with a dance party by DJ Hannah Rad and some fun photo booth moments from Maine Snapshot Studio till 4am. The best party ever and Bethany and Dan Photography flawlessly captured every single moment. There is so much eye candy for you today!
From Bethany and Dan, Talk about one for the memory banks. You guys! This wedding Was. incomparable.
All Liz and Max really wanted from their wedding was for there to be a good time; for all their guests to enjoy themselves and to experience love and happiness. They weren’t interested in a ton of couple photos or all the details. They just wanted FUN. Now we did take some sweet couple portraits in the fort and the details were second to none (you rock our world Cairn Events), but I want to stress that for them the focus was on their friends and family and boy did they deliver on that.
Liz got ready with her sisters and her mom, putting on some killer stilettos for her first look with Max in the fort. I was so worried about her ankles but she insisted that she wanted to wear them for Max to look killer. I can respect that. We hung out in the fort with them a little while and then it was time to sign the Ketubah! It's wild how fast things move on a wedding day. After the Ketubah they had a cocktail hour before the ceremony since on a Saturday, they needed to wait until Sundown to have the Jewish Ceremony. Lit only by candles they said their vows by the ocean, followed up immediately by an EPIC fireworks display that seemed to last longer than the 4th of July! Dinner served tapas style, delicious Bard Coffee, and a dance party till 4 am. Are you getting an idea of how incomparable this one was you guys? So incredible to be a part of and we were honored to be a part of it.
