Norumbega Inn & Cellardoor Winery Maine Wedding: Sonja & Tiernan

November 26, 2014

I’m so excited to share a gorgeous Maine wedding on the blog today. When I heard Sonja was getting married in Maine, I immediately knew her wedding was going to be beautiful. I met Sonja at another same-sex wedding in Boston where she was the makeup artist and I was the photographer. We worked so well together and her work was stunning. My photos came out so much better because of her awesome work. So future brides, please take notes, it’s so worth it so hire a great makeup artist because she’ll make you look your absolute best.

Sonja and Tiernan’s wedding started with the girls getting ready at the Norumbega Inn in Maine. It was a boutique hotel right in Camden, ME. I stayed at the Black Horse Inn, which is down the street from Norumbega Inn, and where all the guests were staying (loved the jacuzzi by the way). Since Sonja was a makeup artist, she was able to do her own makeup, which was flawlwss, and had one of the girls help do her hair. It was a small and intimate wedding, which I loved. Most of the family members were coming from out of town, and some outside the country, so it was very nice for Sonja and Tiernan to see them. We had an amazing day celebrating Sonja and Tiernan’s marriage. Xoxo!

I loved the dress and the heels; they were so non-traditional. The details on her dress were gorgeous!

The reception was going to be at the Cellardoor Winery, which is also very close to the Norumbega Inn, hence the wine-themed wedding invitations and guest sign-in book.
