When Meg first inquired with me, she said they considered letting a friend take a few photos for their wedding. Neither her nor Jake are a big fan of having their photo taken. I think it was her parents who convinced them the investment would be worth it. After all, you only get married once, and a stunning Maine farmhouse wedding venue should always be captured.
When I arrived at The Timber Hitch Farmhouse the barn was beautifully decorated. I knew the day would be magical. As soon as I walked in Meg gave me a big hug and was beaming with excitement. Surrounded by her closest friends she told me how everyone met, which sparked stores from their childhood. This assured me the day would be relaxed and filled with the best memories. In my opinion, the best weddings are laid back. They are focused more on having fun and less on fussing over details that don’t truly matter.
Meg and Jake wrote their own vows. Instead of sharing them in front of everyone at the ceremony, they save them for a more intimate moment just between the two of them. After they were announced husband and wife, Jake was surprised with EnChroma glasses. to show color to people who are color blind. Getting married at a stunning Maine farmhouse wedding venue and seeing color all on the same day is pretty epic in my book.
Their family formals may very well be some of my all-time favorites. Meg was so organized and prepared everyone beforehand. There was nothing to stress over. Meg and Jake’s family smiled and laughed together. That’s exactly how people should spend their time at weddings.
After their engagement session, I knew capturing their love wouldn’t be hard. But I never imagined I would have so many favorite images from their wedding day. This is by far the larget preview I’ve ever delivered, and that’s after two rounds of reviewing to narrow down the selection. Farmhouse wedding venues are some of my favorite because not only do they have stunning views for formal photos their barns are the perfect setting for receptions. Ben and Sarah gave some of the most thoughtful speeches. Standing in the middle of the dance floor was not their favorite thing, but it allowed me to capture so many beautiful images of an incredible moment.
As I watched Meg dance with her dad, him wearing the paper tie she made for him back in first grade, I teared up. All morning she and her friends joked about how he would call her by her maiden name one last time before her parents walked her down the aisle. You could see just how proud he is of her. The dance Jake shared with his mom wasn’t any less emotional. They laughed over who was going to lead and danced teary-eyed together.
Their reception was filled with dancing, laughter, and memories they will treasure for a lifetime. It truly was an honor to capture this wedding day for one of the kindest couples.
