Tei & Jesse | Cubby Hole Farm | North Haven, Maine

A Nautical Chic New England Wedding

The island of North Haven, Maine is a magical place for a wedding.

The coast of New England, in general, is a pretty incredible place for a wedding, but Maine weddings are epic. North Haven is a tiny island off the coast of Maine, only accessible by boat three times a day.

Rolling hills, lupine fields, looming fog, lobsters, wellies, ocean inlets, farms, fishermen, sail boats, and cable knit sweaters…

Magic.

We arrived the day before the wedding on a ferry and were greeted by Tei and Jesse on the dock before heading to their intimate rehearsal dinner at the Nebo Lodge.

To my surprise, I recognized a few guests in attendance from one of my favorite ever Hamptons weddings I photographed early in my career. I found out that they all went to Rhode Island School of Design together.

The next morning, Tei got ready in her parents’ farmhouse, one that they’ve lovingly restored since they found it three decades ago.

Guests arrived at the property as Japanese taiko drummers began the ritual of summoning the bride to her ceremony. Tei appeared in the distance, parents at her side.  Sailing a boat through an island inlet as the drums banged louder and louder.

Magic.

The bride wore a custom Bottega Veneta dress and the groom in a Thom Sweeney suit.

And what Maine wedding would be complete without local oysters? The cocktail hour took place in the garden of Tei’s parent’s property and the reception continued inside the barn Tei’s father had built.

Here’s few images from the weekend…

A huge thanks to Michael Rowley for shooting this wedding with me.
