Sunday River Resort, located in the heart of the mountains of western Maine, is the perfect destination to say “I do.” I was thrilled when I learned that Elizabeth and Robert would be having their wedding at Jordan Terrace, which is one of the many locations at Sunday River that hosts ceremonies and receptions.
Their wedding ceremony at Jordan Terrace offered scenic views of Sunday River’s alpine Jordan Bowl, which provided a picturesque outdoor ceremony. Following the ceremony was a lovely wedding reception at Sliders Restaurant, whose intimate post-and-beam architecture made for a unique location.
Perhaps the most amazing moment was when a rainbow appeared right over the mountains surrounding Jordan Terrace. It was truly a sight to be seen!
I asked Elizabeth to tell me a little more about her and Robert’s special day:
How did you two meet?
We met in 2012 when I first started my big girl job at UPMC.
When and where did your engagement take place? Please describe the proposal.
I actually proposed to Rob. Our 3 year dating anniversary was coming up and I decided to pop the question when we were heading south to Hot Springs, North Carolina Memorial weekend. I ordered his engagement/wedding band online from Ireland before hand and it was burning a hole in my pocket. On our get away, we went for a short hike and had BLTs’ for lunch and I knew if I didn’t take the opportunity then to do it, I would lose all confidence in ever doing it. So, I told him “You can’t say no.”, pulled out the ring box from under the couch and slid the ring on his finger. He was bit confused then asked if we were officially engaged.
How did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?
I knew I wanted a small, relaxed, chill wedding with minimal planning involved but with delicious food.
What was your color palette and your style vision?
We chose lilac, grey, and champagne and wanted minimal decorations/planning involved with the wedding because at the time we were living in Pittsburgh and anticipating a move in December up to Boston.
What is your favorite moment of your wedding day?
Watching everyone enjoying themselves
What song did you do your first dance to?
Thousand years cover by Boyce Avenue
Tell us about your flowers, your gown and your cake.
I folded both paper bouquets. It took about 8 months to do, made the pistol and stamen for some of the flowers using wire, a hot glue, and yellow nail polish, and added fake baby’s breath.
My gown is a homage to both the Korean and American culture. The white dress color and veil was the Western take on the outfit where the East was a modern twist on the Korean traditional hanbok/paebak dress including the headpiece, petticoat, socks, pants, and shoes.
Our cake was a basic cake with Maine blueberry filling.
