Mara and Zach's Colony Hotel Wedding | Kennebunkport Maine Wedding Photographers

Beautiful Outdoor Nautical Details at this Colony Hotel Wedding

You may remember this gorgeous couple from their engagement session last fall in Connecticut.

Mara and Zach's Colony Hotel Wedding couldn't have been on a more perfect day. Early morning started out a little cold and cloudy but it quickly cleared to a gorgeous warm day, perfect for a ceremony with an ocean view.

The girls started their morning with hair and make up in one of the main conference rooms on the ground floor of The Colony. Along with her bridesmaids Mara was surrounded by friends and family popping in to wish her well and it really built up the excitement for the day. Once hair and make up were  finished we headed up to the suite for the girls to get dressed and a few last minute touches to the dresses and flowers for their hair. I loved how the room was set up with gorgeous victorian style chairs that made for gorgeous candid portraits. I could have sat there all day and just caught whomever sat in the chairs - the light and everything was absolutely perfect!

While the girls were getting into their dresses the guys were hanging out in their room and were quickly joined by Dean to start their groomsmen portraits on the side porch. From there they were ready to start ushering the guests and making sure they all had water and bubbles.

The ceremony was touching and included several Jewish traditions, officiated by Zach's father, who had a few hard times keeping from getting emotional - which is always so cute! After the glass was smashed and the guests cheered we headed off to cocktail hour on the lawn.

Mara and Zach danced the night away with their guests and the reception even included a surprise hora - one of my favorite jewish wedding traditions. After the reception ended we snuck them out onto the side lawn for some night portraits!
