Mallori and James were married on October 7th, 2018 at Clay Hill Farm in Cape Neddick, Maine. I was very excited to be returning to Clay Hill Farm after second shooting there this spring. I have a lot of great memories working one of my first jobs there as a teenager setting tables. Clay Hill Farm has since renovated and there’s a lovely bridal suite upstairs, where Mallori got ready.
There was light rain falling as Mallori and James did their first look upstairs on the balcony. Luckily, the rain was short-lived and cleared up right in time for the couple’s lovely outdoor ceremony. The property has a lovely walkway and gazebo location that’s perfect for wedding ceremonies. While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, we took photos outside with the gorgeous Maine foliage as a stunning backdrop.
Once everyone was inside and seated in the dining room, Mallori and James were announced into their wedding reception and shared a beautiful first dance together on the dance floor. Clay Hill Farm served up the delicious food and then Mallori had a dance with her dad and James had a dance with his mom.
The rest of the reception was a lot of fun. There was dancing inside and games outside. I particularly loved Mallori and James’ last dance to the lesser known Symphony version of “Perfect,” sung by Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli.
As the wedding came to an end, everyone gathered outside for a group photo in front of the venue. They also did an adorable exit where family and friends tossed seeds as they walked through the crowd. Lastly, Mallori and James waved goodbye to family and friends as they drove away in an adorable antique car. All in all, it was a perfect day and I’m so glad Mallori and James chose me to capture this special day.
