What a magical day it was to shoot a sunrise Kettle Cove elopement in Cape Elizabeth Maine! As soon as I arrived to Kettle Cove at the ripe hour of 7:00am. The fog was lifting off the ocean, giving this hazy purple band across the sea. I had to hold my tears in as I started to think how lucky I was to live in this beautiful state of Maine. A few lobstermen were getting into their boats and riding off into the Atlantic to start their day. A handful of boats were still sitting in the harbor just swaying back and forth in the soft wind. This wasn’t a typical wedding- it was a styled shoot but man oh man, if I could convince anyone of anything I would convince them to do a sunrise elopement at Kettle Cove. Kettle Cove was riddled with seashells and driftwood and the water had made a beautiful wavy pattern on the beach.
The couple, the planner
I had the privilege of working with Whitney of Whitewood Events and Sarah of Watershed Floral for this styled Kettle Cove elopement. Whitewood Events is actually based in Georgia. Whitney was traveling up to Maine to see the fall leaves and wanted to create the most out of her trip! It was such a blast working with both Whitney and Sarah and the adorable couple. Seriously, he was British, she was gorgeous, they met in Spain, he moved to America to be with her…does a love story get any better than that?!
Their gorgeous bouquet and boutonnière was made by the extremely talented Sarah of Watershed Floral based in Portland Maine. I would love to do more elopements especially if they’re during this golden hour of sunlight and at such a beautiful location as this Kettle Cove Elopement!
