The Sophisticated Bar Harbor Wedding of Abby & Connor

How did you two meet?

We met through friends! We have a very close mutual friend who brought us together on a weekend away on Martha’s Vineyard. After that quick weekend together getting to know each other, the rest was history!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?

We knew we wanted a classic, Maine coastal wedding. We looked at a few venues along the Maine coast, but as soon as we saw the BHC, we instantly knew that was the spot! Abby spent her childhood years vacationing with her family in Bar Harbor & we both spent a week there recently with Connor’s family, as well. It’s such a special place!

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?

Reading Connor’s letter to me the morning of the wedding was so special! Also, the weather! We couldn’t have asked for a better day – especially the surprise sunset at the end of the night!

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?

Right after the ceremony, Connor & I took 10 minutes just to ourselves. We went up to the 2nd floor of the BHC and out onto the small deck overlooking the entire wedding + cocktail hour! That moment was so special and cool to be up above looking down on where the ceremony had just taken place, as well as all of our friends and family!

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!

We just got back from our honeymoon in Italy! Now it’s on to a very busy and exciting hockey season for Connor so most of our time will be spent in a hockey rink for the next 7-8 months 🙂
