Lex and Rodney said “I do” at the Newagen Seaside Inn overlooking gorgeous Maine beaches and sunsets that reminded Lex of home. The couple selected a blue color theme that was inspired by mussel shells and the ocean – there were even mussel shells on the tables and the wedding cake! Lex water-colored the invitations, menus, and table settings, and her bridesmaids all wore various shades of blue and teal. Bethany and Dan Photography was on-scene capturing every sweet moment from Lex and Rodney’s big day, from the intimate outdoor ceremony to the reception with all their family and friends.
Lex and Rodney
Newagen Seaside Inn, Southport, Maine
A close family friend wrote our entire ceremony, pulling upon different elements that were meaningful to us. Neither of us are religious, but we still wanted to have a meaningful and spiritual ceremony. We also asked my sister to do a reading and she tied in our love for our dog, which was perfect. We each wrote our own vows. He went first and I could barely speak when it was my turn!
Lex grew up in Maine and couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere other than right on the water. Since Rodney is from the midwest, we knew this would be destination wedding for half our guests and we wanted a venue with enough accommodations for everyone to stay the weekend. We were married over Labor Day weekend and having all of our friends and family spend three days with us on the beautiful Maine coast was perfect.
Our colors were inspired by mussel shells and the ocean, which are things that remind me of home. We didn’t have a specific color in mind, but blue was the theme. Lex hand water-colored our invitations, menus and table settings. The bridesmaids wore various shades of blue and teal and the bride’s shoes were a watercolor pattern. We even had mussel shells on the tables and on the cake!
