Being on top of a mountain with the love of your life, vowing to spend forever together is just about as romantic as it gets in my book, so when Sarah + Brad chose me to document their Cadillac Mountain elopement in Acadia National Park, I was so excited. The two got engaged on Cadillac Mountain last year in a spot just yards away from where they said their vows. They love Maine – it’s hiking trails, landscape, and beer – and knew they wanted to come up to Maine from Pennsylvania for their wedding day.
Instead of hotel rooms, these two rented the cutest AirBnbs to get ready in. I joined Sarah and her two “bridesmaids” in the pre-wedding excitement, and then we drove the winding road up to the top of Cadillac where we were met with the most intense wind I have ever experienced on Cadillac! After we got our legs under us in what felt like a tornado, we walked down to a beautiful spot overlooking Bar Harbor, where we witnessed a beautiful and hilarious ceremony. Sarah + Brad’s vows included inside jokes, funny memories, and lots of swears – it was unapologetically them, and I love that.
Also, can we talk about Sarah’s bouquet for a second? I believe that no matter the size of your wedding, a bridal bouquet really helps to make the day feel a bit grander. Her bouquet was made by the amazing Chickadee Hill Flowers, who specializes in earthy, loose and romantic blooms. They’re gorgeous, so go check them out here!
