Last month I packed up the Soob, and hit the road early on Friday morning of Labor Day Weekend to make the long but beautiful drive up coastal Route 1 to Sorrento, Maine. YES I stopped at Red’s on the way. YES they were the best friend scallops I’ve ever had.
The next day I joined Brenna and Jay and their families on Brenna’s family’s estate, on Weir Haven Farm which was some incomprehensibly beautiful mixture of a wooded, seaside farm. It doesn’t get more idyllic-ly New England that a wooded sea side farm does it?
What ensued was a beautiful warm late summer wedding day full of love, music, family, friends, lots of Maine beer and we even got to see SEALS! After a stunning ceremony on the sandbar down the hill, we set out on the boat for a tool around the harbor while their friends and family moved back up to the meadow for cocktails and lawn games. This outrageously beautiful day was rounded out by a surprise song from Brenna’s dad, Jock, who sang a special rendition of “Take me Home Country Roads” only reworded to pay tribute to Weir Haven Farm. The whole day was rounded out with a RIP ROARING dance party under the stars, with that late summer Maine ocean breeze to keep everyone cool and moving. PHEW! This wedding was a labor of love, with folks making the journey way up north past Bar Harbor to join Brenna and Jay in this incredibly special place. I’m so humbled I got to be their photographer. Brenna and Jay, this one’s for you:
