Krista and Trent's Belfast, Maine Oceanside Wedding
When Krista first reached out to me about capturing her and her fiancé Trent’s brunch wedding on the coast of Belfast, Maine, I knew immediately that theirs was a wedding I wanted to be a part of. They were planning an intimate family inclusive day to celebrate the joining of their two families - and Trent’s adorable kids, Emelia and Elliott were to play a big role in the day. Krista described their wedding vision as "CHILL, relax, brunch, bellinis, enjoying beautiful scenery, and enjoying our loved ones." Enough said, I was there! I admired their calm and relaxed approach to the entire wedding, and was immediately taken with their emphasis on family and connectedness.
The energy when I arrived that morning was so calm and welcoming. Krista and her bridesmaids and friends were preparing decorations in the reception tent and down at the ceremony site in between getting hair and makeup done upstairs in the hotel. Krista made a lot of the decorations (check out the beautiful hanging pieces in the reception images) herself and actually transported them from Florida where she currently lives. Everyone worked together to not only execute a beautiful vision for the day, but to support each other in preparing for Krista and Trent to walk down the aisle. Some of my favorite moments of the morning were witnessing Emelia and the flower girls spin around in their dresses on the deck overlooking the ceremony site, and seeing the way Elliot looked at his father when the two were sitting together in their hotel room before heading down to the water.
The rain forecasted for the day decided to hold off for the stunning ceremony by the water. From the arbor decorated with flowers placed by Krista’s friends to the smiling audience of friends and family, it was absolutely perfect. They stood framed between two trees overlooking the ocean as they exchanged vows and a kiss before heading up to the tent to celebrate with an incredibly delicious brunch, bellinis (of course!), cake, and kites.
Here's a look at their day through some of my favorite photos as well as their sneak peek video. I’m so excited to share their highlight film in the weeks to come.
And big shoutout to my incredible second, Melissa for capturing incredible moments throughout the day.
