Nonantum Resort Wedding | Anderson & Julia | Kennebunkport Maine | Maine Wedding Photographer

If you have ever been around Julia and Anderson, you can testify they were meant to be. The way they look at each other just gives you goosebumps. Julia's laugh is infectious, and Anderson's GQ looks made it very easy on my end. They were so easy to photograph because they just fit so well together, and I knew their wedding day would be just spectacular. Enjoy a glimpse into their wedding day. 

Anderson and Julia met a few years ago via the interwebs, and stayed in touch. They reconnected after Julia slid into Anderson's DMs to chat about a country concert Anderson attended, and then continued based on their mutual love of Australia. Their first date was in the midst of COVID, and with very few restaurants open, they ended up at a local Boston bar where there was no shortage of conversation. Some might say the rest is history. A few months later, after Julia had recently finished the Boston Marathon, the two jet-setted off to Greece where Anderson got down on one knee with the beautiful Santorini as their backdrop.

Julia knew her wedding had to be in Maine. When thinking about where to get married, it was a no-brainer for her. Her family has owned property at Goose Rocks Beach since the 60s, and they have summered there ever since. It was the constant in her life, and the views weren't horrible either :)

It was filled with great stories of how they met and what keeps them together. Look how cute they all looked in their matching jammies!

In terms of the guys? Well, what can I say? They had rented a house 3 minutes from the wedding venue, and let me say, they sure seemed very relaxed when I arrived. Anderson and his wedding party wore blue suits, and each had a special liner hand-picked by each of the 6 groomsmen. I found them hanging out watching TV with a beer in hand. Anderson also had long-term friendships with each of his groomsmen; especially his two brothers.

The first look with Julia's dad, William, was very sweet.

The first look between the bride and groom really is such an intimate moment. The moment the groom turns around to see his bride for the first time can be very emotional. Anderson was speechless when he saw Julia in her wedding gown. There were a few on-lookers that cheered them on. But on my gosh, don't they both look like they walked out of Real Maine Wedding Magazine?

The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport is like no other wedding venue in Maine. They have such a spectacular property with beautiful flowers, dockside views of the ocean, and of course a sailboat. Traditionally, the groom and groomsmen sail off for about an hour to do, well, whatever groomsmen do on a sailboat right before their friend gets married. They return just moments before the ceremony begins.

The ceremony site was just breathtaking, with an arbor of flowers, and a live painter that was painting the bride and groom as they said their vows surrounded by family and friends. Julia's and Anderson's nephews were just precious as their ring bearers. Keep an eye out for their entrances.
