Belfast Maine Wedding: Hannah + Tim
Updated: Feb 8, 2019
I love photographing weddings because it's important work, but also because I love witnessing and affirming the power of love and the beauty of human connection. It's magical and it's real and every wedding is unique.
This is definitely true for Hannah and Tim. The road in life that brought them together was bumpy and sometimes difficult but through it all, they made it. They found each other and created a beautiful family. I loved how they used sand in their ceremony to symbolize their bond and love for each other.
Hannah and Tim wanted a fishing theme for their engagement session and their wedding. So many special touches around the theme could be found throughout the day. "Two Less Fish in the Sea" could be found here and there. The favors on the table were little Swedish Fish! Fishing bobbers hung from the ceiling, there were real lures with hooks on the boutonnieres, and the ring bearer carried the rings on a fishing pole! Red roses, blue dresses, and touches of white finished up this classy nautical wedding.
Married in Belfast, Maine just steps from the harbor where boats bringing the catch of the day can be seen and docks slowly rocked in the waves. The forecast called for rain that day but I don't think a drop was felt!
I wanted to have a little fun and excitement to their bridal portraits so I brought my Enola Gay smoke grenade! A guest volunteered to help with the artistry in releasing the red smoke for these photos! It was so much fun and so different!
