Quinn & Chris: The Colony Hotel Wedding, Kennebunkport, Maine

I wouldn’t wish for it to rain on anyone’s wedding day… but when it does, something truly special happens.  Quinn and Chris had a rainy wedding day, and that something “special” came in the form of family and friends who circled the proverbial wagons and hunkered down for an intimate ceremony in the tiny St. Ann’s Church by the sea, and an energized reception at The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine.  As an observer of numerous wedding celebrations, I was amazed once again by how the entire party were galvanized by the adverse weather.  Strangers bonded under umbrellas, friends dodged raindrops together as they ran through puddle filled parking lots and families were linked forever through a day spent laughing and supporting the people they loved the most.

Quinn & Chris couldn’t have been more relaxed about the weather.  They had the right perspective: their wedding day was about more than about the clouds or sun… it was all about their union, in that special church Quinn had always loved beside the sea as witnessed by their family and friends.

Made entirely of large beams and stone, St. Ann’s was the perfect sanctuary on such a cold and rainy day.

We went to the beach and Quinn just ditched her shoes, and walked around in the rain barefoot.

Beautiful and timeless.

A little rain wasn’t going to stop these two!

Quinn & Chris: What a wonderful celebration!  Thank you for having us there!  Your wedding was everything we love to photograph: real moments regardless of the wind and rain outside.  Thanks for being so much fun… we loved documenting your big day!

    Kiki Hinman - Brian,
    These are among the BEST wedding photos I have ever seen! I love the photos of Quinn & Chris near the ocean with umbrellas & bare feet. They are truly striking and unique. You always seem to capture not only the moment, but the emotion. Wonderful.
