We had a blast walking around Olivia and Kate’s neighborhood in Brooklyn for their engagement session last year, so we were super excited to meet them on the coast of Maine for their wedding ceremony overlooking the harbor followed by a “game night” reception with lots of dancing and tacos! Kate is also a wedding photographer and Olivia works in theater, so the whole day was full of color, drama, creative inspiration and personal charm.
They started playing board games early on in their relationship, so they used that as inspiration for a personal touch to their romantic fall getaway. They filled a table at their reception space with games for guests to play. Olivia used a “Clue” card as a pocket square, and almost all of their decor was DIY involving game pieces and something gold. Kate’s streak of teal hair matched Olivia’s tie perfectly (we still have no idea how they pulled that off!) and something told me the color pink would make an appearance. I was right: Kate’s sparkly dress had a hint of pink, and just as we had hoped, we got a glorious pink sunset just as we were wrapping up photos by the harbor. It was a chilly day but Kate had cozy wool shawls for herself and her bridesmaids, which looked perfect against a backdrop of sailboats. She also brought her leather jacket and a puffy coat for their dog Ping! Fairy lights and a big confetti moment at the end of the night added sparkle & surprise, making the whole night feel like magic.
Congrats to Kate, Olivia and Ping! Thank you so much for choosing us to capture your big day!
