Laid Back Maine Wedding

Cat and Karl were married at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Maine with its dramatic streaks of granite reaching to the sea, shaped by massive movements thousands of years ago. Their reception was held a few miles up the peninsula at their 200 year old rambling Maine farmhouse that they bought last year and have been renovating.

Their goal of the day – aside from exchanging vows – was to throw a fun party in a beautiful setting. They  wanted their wedding to be laid back, romantic, natural, and with a touch of adventure. They accomplished all those things in their laid back Main wedding. You can see so much more in the full gallery here, all captured by Sarah Culver Photgraphy. Be sure to read on to here the complete budget breakdown on Cat and Karl’s wedding. It really does help seeing how much things cost!

From The Bride:
Maine is one of our favorite places on earth, and our wedding was our chance to introduce the state to so many of our friends and family. We wanted the scenery to give drama to the day – that’s why there was no additional decoration at the Pemaquid lighthouse. Just the lighthouse and Mother Nature.

If I could have done something differently:  I would have eaten more food.  I was too excited to feel hungry – but after the wedding, everyone kept talking about how good the food was.  I, unfortunately, had no idea how good it was because I didn’t set any time aside to eat.  That – and that I wish I had put some bronzer on my décolletage…my chest is a little paler than my face and shoulders in the photos.  Not too keen on that.

From Sarah Culver Photgraphy
Cat thrifted all of the gorgeous teacups, and they used mint from their garden to make a big jar of mojitos. Cat owns a local artisan co-op called The Good Supply and from there she sourced her bridesmaids gifts, beautiful pashminas made by Maine artists.

    Less is more and with a stunning Maine backdrop like this, it makes for the perfect combination. The details and flower designs are just delightful. The bride’s gown is the perfect finishing touch.

    I love your wedding! So beautiful! I am planning my own and want to embroider something into each guest’s napkin and am looking for cloth napkins just like the ones you had. Did you purchase those for the event? If so, can I ask from where? Many thanks!

  2. [...] I’ve been fortunate enough to call Cat and Karl friends and neighbors for years. They stopped being our neighbors when they bought a rambling farmhouse in Maine and started living their dream. The night before the wedding we stuffed ourselves on Maine lobster. The morning of the wedding friends helped string lanterns, Cat arranged her flowers, and then everyone gathered at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse down the street for the ceremony. Back at the farmhouse wood-fired pizza was made as a bluegrass band played. The weekend was magic. For more photos and a list of the vendors take a look at their feature on Wedding Chicks. [...]
