Inn By The Sea Wedding | Danra and Hauke's sea-side wedding in Cape Elizabeth
Sunday was a warm, but still blustery day for an Inn By The Sea Wedding
Danra and Hauke, along with Hauke's daughter made the trek from Vermont to share in an intimate sea-side wedding in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I feel like I've photographed more Inn By The Sea Weddings in the winter than anywhere else! It must be the warm inviting nature of the Inn, complete with a fireplace in the lounge that definitely throws off some heat, s'mores by the fire pit in the evenings, and of course the beautiful rooms that look out to the ocean!
Danra and Hauke started their day getting ready in separate rooms of their suite. When I arrived Hauke was just finishing lacing up his shoes and tying his bowtie so he could get ready to see Danra for the first time. Danra was tucked away in the bedroom where her and Hauke's daughter were getting into their dresses and adding the finishing touches to Danra's outfit with a vintage pearl necklace she chose to wear as a bracelet.
Once everyone was ready for the big reveal we all headed up to the main hallway with it's dark wood accented walls and gorgeous sunlight. Hauke anxiously waited at the end of the hallway for Danra to tap him on the shoulder for their first look. I love when our couples opt for a first look! It's a great way to get rid of any pre-wedding jitters and get a moment all to yourselves to really take everything in.
A Ceremony with a View
Pretty much every aspect of an Inn By The Sea Wedding has a stunning ocean view, but for a small ceremony, there's no better place than on the main walkway. While Sunday was a bit windy, there were still amazing views of the ocean behind the couple as they tied the knot.
Danra and Hauke exchanged heartfelt vows sprinkled with lighthearted jokes that lovingly poked fun at each other, and a good reminder to not take each other too seriously! Love and life is supposed to be full of fun!
And the rings! Hauke made both his and Danra's rings they exchanged during the ceremony! How amazing is that??
