Wolfes Neck Farm Wedding

This may have been one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting…

01-wolfes-neck-farm-wedding-freeport-maineEvelyn and Craig have an amazing history. Maine-born Evelyn met Scotland-born Craig while attending university in Edinburgh. After college, they moved to Hong Kong, where Evelyn taught English. They’ve since relocated back to New England, where Craig coaches rugby at Yale. They’ve truly been around the world!

Evelyn got ready at the Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport, while the groom got ready in Cumberland. That didn’t stop him from sending over a beautiful bouquet for his bride.

The groom and his groomsmen all wore traditional Scottish kilts.

The ceremony took place at the Wolfe’s Neck Farm Wedding Field. In keeping with Scottish tradition, a piper played while Evelyn and her father walked down the aisle after they arrived in a beautiful Bentley.

After the wedding, Evelyn and Craig spent some alone time at the state park. They lounged by the water and shared some champagne while their guests enjoyed their cocktail hour.

A little rain didn’t bring this couple down, and I loved how every time we stepped foot into fields and forest, the groom carefully picked up the train on his bride’s gown. Little things like this are such a symbol of love and consideration for years to come. I could tell she appreciated it and reciprocated.

By late afternoon, the sky started to grow a bit dark. Luckily, the reception was held in a beautiful tent on the Wolfe’s Neck Farm Field.

The decor highlighted the Craig family’s tartan, as well as couple’s travels. Their tables reflected destinations they felt were significant to their relationship, such as where they met, where they got engaged, and where they’ve lived.

There was so much love at this wedding and so many hugs.The toasts were lovely, heartfelt, and a little embarrassing for the groom, but they were all in good fun.

Everyone, including me, had fun dancing to Scottish songs that the band played. I could tell that their guests were amazing people inside and out.

During the reception, a beautiful rainbow appeared outside the tent. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
