Wolfe’s Neck Mallet Barn Wedding || Freeport, Maine

Danielle and Branden are a dream couple….they are fun, relaxed, beautiful, have wonderful friends, and they have the brains to go with it all!  I truly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect couple to work with–and honestly it was one of the best weddings I have ever photographed.  I absolutely love Maine Barn weddings–and to be married overlooking the ocean is a great combination of rustic and nautical.  The light was beautiful, the wedding team was a dream, the location was great….truly just a specaular day!  Danielle and Branden opted for a first look which really helped calm Danielle’s nerves and created so much more time for them to spend with their friends and families.  One of my favorite moments was when Danielle looked over at me during the ceremony because it had started to rain–but the guests they took it like champs!  They gave cheers throughout the ceremony to let Danielle know that they didn’t mind the cool down with the rain–and that they supported their marriage no matter what!  Like Dr. Seuss said these friends and this couple would have gotten married in a box, or with a fox–on a train or in the rain 🙂  Honestly you couldn’t ask for more faithful friends to stand by their side.  They also didn’t do a formal bridal party–knowing that they couldn’t include everyone–and that they didn’t want people to have to wear one particular thing….they just spent time with everyone and took pictures with people as the evening went on.  When the weather cleared people played lawn games and enjoyed the beautiful evening.  Then it was onto the dance floor–the band was fantastic!  The singers were able to sing such an incredible range of things and for some songs literally sounded like the original!  Not to mention Danielle and Branden and their brothers have impeccable taste in music–they played such a variety and so many classic rock songs that you don’t get to hear at a wedding–but that everyone loved dancing too!  So I hope you all enjoy these images as much as I do–and as much as I enjoyed taking them!  I am one lucky New England wedding photographer!  I can’t wait to share with you the video we are making from the wedding day!
