Kelly and Brett’s Wedding atthe Mountain House on Sunday River19 Oct 2017, Posted by Wedding Photography in
Kelly and Brett met just over three years ago, and, in Kelly’s words, “they’ve been inseparable ever since!” This past Labor Day weekend, they were married in a beautiful ceremony at The Mountain House on Sunday River, a rustic yet elegant venue in Newry, Maine. Matt and I always love photographing weddings on Labor Day weekend, because we were married that same weekend back in 2010! We also enjoy working at the Mountain House whenever we get the chance, because it offers so many great photo opportunities.
The day started with Kelly and her bridesmaids getting ready in the ski lodge, while Brett and his groomsmen got ready in the farmhouse. In our experience, couples are oftentimes nervous leading up to the ceremony, but Kelly and Brett were both so relaxed! It was clear that neither one could wait to get married, but they weren’t going to sweat the small stuff, which was great. Instead, they made sure to enjoy their time with family and friends.
The ceremony took place in the Pine Cathedral, one of three different ceremony locations offered at the Mountain House. The Pine Cathedral is a lovely little clearing amongst the trees, where felled pines have been provided as benches for guests. It’s a truly unique experience – one that’s totally Maine – and it’s exactly what Kelly and Brett were looking for. They love the outdoors and wanted their wedding to reflect that.
The rest of the day was one big celebration, with all sorts of merriment and dancing. Throughout it all, Kelly and Brett looked so happy, and Matt and I were incredibly happy for them. They picked the best weekend to get married (if I do say so myself), and we had a lot of fun photographing their wedding. Below are some of my favorite pictures from throughout their day. Enjoy!
