This is Ilona & Chris! You might remember them from their insanely cute engagement session — seriously, these two are adorable. They met through a mutual friend (who they convinced to get ordained online so she could marry them!) and started officially dating almost 2 years later. The first summer that they were together, Chris took Ilona up to Millinocket to his grandfather’s camp on Lake Ambajejus — he had been visiting every summer since he was a baby — and convinced her to get on a seaplane, despite her fear of heights, planes, and small spaces! Later on that’s the same place where Chris proposed, so it only made sense to have their ceremony there, too! They actually did their OFFICIAL ceremony up in a seaplane over the lake, and my second shooter Cortney (who is a badass and an extremely talented photographer!) captured some killer shots of that while I captured their arrival back by the dock so they could start their more public ceremony for everyone to see. 🙂 They had a super casual cocktail hour outside, also overlooking the lake, before heading to the Big Moose Inn for their reception!
Ceremony: Private camp on Lake Ambajejus in Millinocket, Maine | Reception: Big Moose Inn | DJ: Mario Leon | Whoopie pies: Sweets Market in Brewer, ME | Ilona’s hair & makeup: M Studio | Arbor flowers: Millinocket Floral Shop
