The air was warm and the breeze carried with it the scent of the sea. Maine’s coast was bustling with excited tourists as they hurried to make checks on their bucket lists. While others were busy sightseeing, a local couple and a few family members made their way across the rocks to a secluded spot on Schoodic Point. This Acadia National Park elopement was simply beautiful and created special memories for all involved.
It all started when I received a call from my friend. She explained how the large wedding she was planning in the fall was not what she desired. Furthermore, she told me how she wanted her home, the coast of Maine, to be a part of her wedding day. This is a place that is part of her and her fiance’s story. There was just one catch, they would be eloping in two days! I was out of state at the time, so I hopped in my Subaru the next morning and headed for the coast.
On the day of the elopement, we walked through the woods and across the rocks to a flat spot overlooking Mt Dessert Narrows. The bride and groom stood with the blue waters of the North Atlantic behind them. Similarly, the family stood around in a semi-circle as the couple promised their love to each other. After a simple ceremony and photoshoot, we enjoyed a seaside picnic. Stories were told, seagulls were chased off, and memories were made. In conclusion, this elopement designed some beautiful moments in this couple’s life. They have their “wedding rock” that they visit every time they are in the area. This day will continue to remain special in all of our lives.
