The guests arrived on buses from Portland, grabbed drinks, and made their way to the ceremony. It was a beautiful processional. The sweetest part was when Cully covered her face with her bouquet to hide her tears. It was one of the most endearing moments I’ve ever captured. The ceremony was lead by two of Cully’s closest friends, so it was personal and full of laughter. Upon their announcement as a married couple, they walked down the aisle, receiving as many high fives as possible. It was so joyous!
The party was just as Cully described it- a laid back affair featuring delicious food with the simple, beautiful farm as a backdrop. There was so much laughter and delicious local foods and drinks! Like many of my couples these two, wanted to have a big low key gathering with their friends, and these two nailed it. Their whole day had the most gorgeous home-grown feel. The piece de resistance of the reception was the NINE CAKES by Brianna at the Tandem Bakery in Portland. Each cake was baked and decorated with distinctive flavors and designs as Cully and Carson are major foodies. As the group gathered in the barn for dinner and toasts- spirits were high, and the lighting was dreamy. I love being a photographer for magical Maine weddings, and Cully and Carson’s Shady Lane Farm wedding was just that. Congratulations, you two!
