Acadia National Park Adventure Elopement | Maine Elopement Photographer | Cadillac Mountain Elopement
Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park is an iconic spot, especially for an elopement. But let's quickly talk about Acadia. A national park where the mountains meet the ocean. Rocky cliffs, beautiful views of the lakes, an adorable town nearby and plenty to explore for a long weekend. And the best of all, it's right in my backyard in New England. Our only National Park and one I will cherish forever.
When Erin and Michael first reached out to me for their elopement day they had originally thought of doing the White Mountains. Because of my crazy Fall schedule the only place I could do at the time was in Acadia. Erin absolutely loves National Parks, so she was beyond excited about this option. Plus this was one she had never gone to before. She was beyond excited about the thought of marrying Michael in such a beautiful place outdoors. They knew they wanted an adventure elopement and this was the perfect spot to have it.
Erin and Michael have been together for over 9 years and have a son, Carter. They were originally planning a larger wedding, but because of COVID they started researching into other options. They ultimately decided to cancel their wedding and just elope the three of them. We had such an amazing time planning their day, and I felt lucky that Erin was as organized as I am!
Their adventurous elopement day
We got the most beautiful day in early November for a Fall elopement. They took their time in the morning to get ready together at their Airbnb. Erin was right on time getting ready upstairs, while Michael and Carter took the downstairs to get ready in the "man cave". When they were ready, we set off for their ceremony location on the mountain overlooking the ocean. It was quiet and peaceful with very few people - the blessing of eloping at the start of winter. The two of them exchanged their personal vows to one another, had a reading by Carter, and celebrated afterwards together with some shots.
We then set off for the cliffs close to Otter Point to have an adorable picnic by the ocean for sunset. They had cake, popped champagne, and took in the fact that they were finally married. It was the absolute perfect and stress free day they could have ever asked for.
