Jessica & James ~ A Cliff House Wedding in Cape Neddick, Maine

June 10, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I was excited that Jessica got in touch with me about photographing her wedding. I had met her when I shot her sister's wedding the year before and it's always a good sign when the same family comes back for more! 

We didn't meet up before the wedding but hashed out all the details over the phone and through my online questionnaire. Jessica and James chose the Cliff House in Maine for their celebration with their ceremony taking place down the road in York at the First Parish Church. I hadn't been to the Cliff House before so I arrived early and took a good look around. It is quite the sprawling resort with amazing views of the Atlantic. When they call it the Cliff House they aren't kidding! It sits on the cliffs and offers great spot on the rocks for photos. We made good use of them at sunset as you will see below!

The girls were getting ready when I arrived and B & L Wedding Films were there shooting video. They were also at Jessica's sister's wedding the year before. We covered the girls for a while then bounced over to the guys which turned out to be quite the hike to the other side of the complex. James and his guys were on track and when James was ready we got him set up for the first look overlooking the ocean. It was November and chilly but sunny at least! 

After the first look we took some photos on the cliffs then got the family photos done before heading to the First Parish Church in York for the ceremony. 

The church was nice and bright for the ceremony which is not typical for most churches so the light was nice and made things a little easier for me. Jessica's dad handed off her daughter and we got underway. The marriage certificate was signed afterwards then it was back to the Cliff House for the party!

The Atlantic Ballroom is a great space. Clockwork Boston was setting up and I managed to get some details before heading to the cliffs one more time to just catch the end of sunset with Jessica and James. Introductions came shortly after and the evening got underway starting with the first dance and toasts. The band took it from there and the rest is history! I hope you enjoy some photos from the Cliff House and remember to check back for more every week! Also make sure to browse my other wedding work HERE
