Bailey Island Library Hall Wedding Photography | St. John's Baptist Church | Megan + Jonathan


And just like that, the past two years have flown by! Megan and Jonathan have put down roots and they've tied the knot, and now is the beginning of their forever. How fun is that?! Megan reached out to me way back in 2017 to photographer her "extra" wedding in Brunswick and Bailey Island, Maine. If you know me at all, you know I'm here for all the extra and her wedding to Jonathan did not disappoint! Megan got married in her childhood church - St. John the Baptist in Brunswick, Maine which is super dramatic even at its plainest. The reception was at the Bailey Island Library Hall, a place central to Megan's idyllic Maine childhood and conveniently located next to some of Maine's best shoreline.


Sit down with a glass of wine and watch the slideshow, then browse through a brief snapshot of the day just below!



I am a wedding photographer who truly believes in the importance of quality, heirloom products. Oftentimes photographers will provide a "shoot and burn" experience that includes coverage and rights to the images - but what then? Couples are left to figure out art on their own, and oftentimes that means not doing anything at all. Digital images are an important piece of the wedding photography experience, but to me, they're not the most important piece and they're definitely not the whole story. So, all of my couples get to enjoy their stress free experience while they let a professional do all of the design work for them! Whether you want an album or a full wall of grand and timeless images like these, I've got you covered with pieces that will last generations. Sometime in 2120, your great, great grandkids will ask stories about their past, and your heirloom art will be around to show what life was like 100+ years and multiple generations before.


How cool is that?




Back to Megan and Jonathan - these two are perfect together and they have a chic style that is reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor in the most timeless of ways. Megan's gowns both had long sleeves and full skirts and she was decked out in jewelry that came from grandma's and from her own impeccable collection. They added two vintage cars to their day as a special touch because both of them and their families are really into awesome rides. Lydia of Fern and Flair took care of the coordination and the day ran so smoothly which was an impressive feat for a multi-location wedding! The bouquet and table settings came from Bad Rabbit Flowers, who was the perfect option for someone exciting like Megan.

Megan and Jonathan met at another iconic Maine location - L.L. Bean. Both were working there, and one night, Megan decided to ask John out for drinks. As they say, the rest is history, and these two have been the perfect team ever since. Megan says she knew he was the one early on because it was an easy and carefree relationship - it felt like they had always known each other. John says he instantly felt comfortable around her, he could be himself, share his emotions, and not be afraid. If this isn't the kind of love we all look for, then I don't know what is.
