This was a wedding for the records! I had reached out to Heidi over at She Luxe Weddings and told her I was moving back to Maine and that if any of her couples were looking for a photographer I would love to chat with them. Well, perfectly enough, she had a couple who was living in Minnesota just a couple hours from myself and was having an elegant barn wedding in Maine. I was able to do their engagement session a year prior and then made my way to Norway Maine for their Maine barn wedding at Granite Ridge Estate.
Francis and Funmi’s family was coming from everywhere with a good portion of them coming from Nigeria so the couple chose Maine because they thought it would be a lovely place for people to visit and vacation to. Their wedding was perfect with plenty of happy tears flowing. It truly was one of my favorite weddings to be a part of!
They had their Maine barn wedding but it wasn’t like any normal barn wedding. It was elegant. Sophisticated. And multi-cultural. From the decor at the reception to the ceremony in the middle of the woods to the crying moments at the ceremony to the crazy dance party during the reception- everything was wonderful! The colors of their Nigerian heritage were seen everywhere and played such a special role in their wedding day. Such a wonderful, wonderful event to be a part of!
