This Basin Harbor wedding was FUN! Elizabeth & Ford worked with Claire L’Esperance for their beautiful and unique flowers that complemented the multi-colored bridesmaid’s dresses from Alfred Sung. Elisabeth wore her Mother’s dress from 1977 originally purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue – love it! All of ladies spent the morning at Shear Cuts in Vergennes getting their hair and makeup done with great results! The ceremony was wonderfully and personally officiated by Wendy Bratt who is THE BEST. That evening all the guests rocked out to The Pulse of Boston one of my absolute favorite bands!!” Blog post by Amanda of Orchard Cove Photography.See Elizabeth & Ford's Story

Andrew & Jonathan had some of the most fun photography we had the pleasure of seeing despite the on again off again rain. Their wedding party was very fun and willing to try all sorts of great vignettes despite the weather. Jonathan’s mom did all the flowers including the cake and charming boutonnieres. Their signature drinks featured VT rhubarb juice from Jonathan’s family home. The whole weekend resonated with love and friendship as guests played from Friday to Sunday brunch.

“My family first came to Basin Harbor in 1999 when I was only 9 years old. My dad brought me and my younger siblings to the kids camp. We were reluctant to go at first, but we instantly made friends with the kids from our week. Those friends and families brought us back to Basin Harbor every summer for the next 15+ years. In the summer of 2013, I started dating John Solinger. Our families had become close friends over the summers. We dated long-distance for one year before John moved from New York to Nashville to be closer. John proposed a year later at Button Bay Point and I, of course, said yes. We decided to make it official at the place where it all started in early September 2016. We had a gorgeous, amazing wedding with all of our friends and family at my favorite location–down by the scenic waterfront. One of our favorite memories from the wedding is surprising our guests with delicious maple creemees at the Harbor Store. This place means so much to both our families and we’re looking forward to many more years to come.” Cat SolingerSee Cat & John's Story
