Laura + Arturo
Peaks Island, located a short ferry ride away from Portland, Maine, is a hidden gem that is quintessential New England. The island's natural beauty provides an incredible canvas, combining the rugged coastline with lush gardens and enchanting forest trails. The smallness of the island lends itself to an intimate, private feel.
Laura and Arturo met while studying overseas in Barcelona. They chose to start the next chapter of their incredibly romantic love story by getting married in the garden of the bride's family's beach cottage, where many childhood summers were spent.
There's something truly magical about a seaside garden wedding on Peaks Island, Maine. The picturesque landscape with lush cottage gardens brimming with fragrant flowers mingling with the salty sea breeze, create a dreamy setting that evokes a sense of enchantment. From the vibrant azaleas, sunflowers, and hydrangeas to the elegant roses and peonies, the gardens become a natural extension of the love shared by the couple. As wedding photographers, we are always thrilled to capture these natural elements, weaving them into the narrative of the couple's special day. From candid moments to breathtaking portraits, the island's ambiance enhances the emotional connection and showcases the couple's love story.
We feel truly fortunate to witness the magic of these weddings and to create timeless memories that will be treasured for generations to come. If you're seeking a place where rugged coastline meets tranquil gardens and a sleepy village, Peaks Island is the perfect destination for your Spring or Summer wedding.
