Rachel and Andrew are quite the adventurous couple – I knew from the moment we met that it would be a fun ride. Starting with their engagement session, where the couple requested photos at both the coast and at her parent’s lake house an hour apart. We started at Two Lights State park, featuring the beautiful rocky coast before traveling inland to Sebago Lake for sunset portraits. The session provided a great opportunity to get to know them better leading up to their summer wedding on Peaks Island. 

The day of the wedding, my colleague Peter and I boarded the ferry over to Peaks surrounded by picture perfect Maine summer weather. I always love going out to the Inn on Peaks, as it gives guests a unique perspective out on the water on their way to one of Maine’s best venues. Jayson and his team are on point with their attention to detail and it’s always a joy to work with them. Rachel and Andrew’s day was highlighted by so many amazing moments – the speeches were definitely some of the finest I’ve heard and the emotional parent dances were truly memorable. For me though, it’s all about the dance party – Bob Charest Band always brings out the best in wedding guests, and this night was no different. Lots of familiar faces on the dance floor, which is always nice to see.
