Kiira & Gordon | September 14th, 2019
Bear Mountain Inn | Waterford, ME
Whenever I'm in New England, I feel more at peace. The clean air and mountain views make me feel alive. Whenever we document a wedding up north, I feel connected to the energy of our own wedding (Vermont, 2012). So, it seems that weddings in New England will always yield a fabulous photographic collaboration.
Bring on the New England clientele! We love you guys and want to meet even more of you. Let us tell your story.
Kiira and Gordon are one of these lovely New England couples. They are planting roots near the fertile ground of the Northern Appalachian. We met these two through our epic Bryn Mawr bride connection: Asheleigh, Malorie, Julia, and Heidi! How special to now get to document Kiira and Gordon's union, at Bear Mountain Inn.
This venue is exceptional, and so are the owners and staff. We were welcomed from Baltimore with the warmest of greetings. The elegant barn, stone patio overlooking the lake, and path to the dock through the birch trees ....le sigh.
Such a peaceful place.
Kiira & Gordon are a creative couple and spent copious amounts of time curating the details of this wedding. The hand folded cranes for each guest were a labor of love. Playful touches like the scrabble board were a fun way to tell their story. I also loved the star chart for their first date, engagement, and wedding day.
I think my favorite moment of the day was how Gordon met Kiira halfway down the (very long) aisle, and they walked the rest of it side by side. That symbolism pretty much sums up marriage, in my opinion.
The best part about destination weddings is when we get to spend time with the newlyweds the day-after, capturing epic moments in nature. I played their wedding song, "Together We're Invincible" by Muse, as they danced on the mountain top. Afterwards, Kiira took it up a notch by suggesting that they hop into the lake in their wedding clothes! They walked right into that water side by side. What a moment to capture.
I love my job!
Congratulations to the Newlyweds!!!
