Today’s real wedding is all about location. After their “I,do’s,” Amelia and Ryan had a gorgeous wedding reception at Bourne Farms. This unique setting offers acres of green rolling fields and breathtaking natural beauty. The décor details of the reception only added to the allure of the celebration. Think lush greens, creamy neutrals and tablescapes garnished with herbs and seashells.
We absolutely love the incorporation of the coastal feel into the wedding décor. Not to mention, this unique wedding bouquet is a dream. Everything about this big day feels simply romantic. Don’t miss this summer wedding inspiration.
Today, we are falling head over heels for Tess and Ed’s stunning outdoor wedding. Nestled within the mountains of British Columbia, this serene lakeside setting is a bit of heaven on earth.
Their intimate evening wedding incorporated only their closest friends and family. They also made sure to include an array of thoughtful details in their wedding decor, and even had an adorable vintage theme that set the tone for their big day. We are swooning over the various purple, teal, and creamy white hues displayed within their theme. Everything about Tess and Ed’s special day feels so romantic. We are loving these colors for spring! They used our wedding invitations to match their elegant vintage vision.
You can tell from the wonderful wedding photography, just how much this family loves one another. Their wedding toasts were all filled with so much laughter and sweet tears. This joyful bunch capped off the night with their favorite Dairy Queen ice cream cake, and enjoyed each others company until the early morning.

Good morning, Divas! We’re getting this week started with these gorgeous outdoor wedding ideas from Water’s Edge Resort in Connecticut.
If you’re looking for some tips on how to have a summer-y wedding feel in the middle of a non-summer month then this real wedding is just for you. These special nuptials took place on a September day, but by the looks of it, could have been summer. What we know from Meagan and Chris’s big day is that it’s all about the wedding colors you select. The bouquets and florals were a mix of bright fuchsia and rich burgundy, what a combo. The ocean front location offers a brilliant view, which the couple knew would make for naturally beautiful photographs. Plus, the groom even rode into the ceremony on a boat. How about that for some fun outdoor wedding ideas?
From the Photographer…
Chris and Meagan met while they were bartending. They were in the same circle of friends. After dating for 7 years, Chris planned on proposing in Bar Harbor, Maine, during a weekend getaway. One night while they were at dinner, Meagan brought up marriage; but Chris had planned on proposing the next night at a more formal dinner. Unfortunately, Meagan could read his face completely and she asked Chris if he was planning on proposing. Tears filled his eyes and she just knew. Meagan and Chris both began to cry and they left dinner in tears (of happiness). They hurried back to their hotel so Chris could propose on one knee, overlooking the beautiful water view. He gave Meagan his mother’s ring, who passed away when Chris was eighteen. This was so special to Chris, and Meagan is honored to be wearing it.
Chris and Meagan had their wedding at Water’s Edge Resort and Spa, in Westbrook, CT. We chose the location simply for the gorgeous view. They knew that no matter what the weather had in store for them that the pictures would be spectacular!
Advice to other brides and grooms…
Their advice to other brides and grooms on planning their wedding is to do what they want to do! Chris said that if you have creative ideas, go for it and make it happen. When Chris wanted to come into the venue by boat, Meagan knew he would regret it if he didn’t try, and in the end they were so happy they made it happen. It ended up being a moment that was fun for everyone.

We made it to the almost weekend and have decided to celebrate with this waterfront engagement session inspiration that is the perfect cherry on top of a long week, especially this one. Spectacle Island is offering us nothing less then a stunning spectacle, of course. With stretching coastal views, a city skyline in the distance and a refreshing love, this is pretty much all we could ever ask for from an engagement session.
Waterfront locations are already set up to capture refined photos and with One Eleven Images behind the lens it’s safe to say that magic happened. Take a peek.
From the Photographer…
Gina & John were initially considering getting married on one of the Harbor Islands, before finally deciding to have the big day in Maine, so they decided to go out there for their engagement photos instead. We’re so glad they did! We had never been to Spectacle Island before, and it was a great location, with a little beach, a dock and great city views. We spent the afternoon exploring the island, and we just love the look of the city in the background on an overcast day, and Gina & John looking so great in that waterfront environment. It was great way to spend the day, and we are looking forward to heading to Maine next June for the wedding!
