Soo and Shawn’s wedding was the perfect kickoff to the wedding season. We have had a handful of events this year, but theirs was the first wedding. The wedding ceremony and reception was all held at Cellardoor Vineyards in Lincolnville, a perfect setting to say “I Do”. The ceremony was sweet and intimate with friends and family and once they had said their vows the celebration commenced. For the wedding we were buddied up with Nightcap Bar Co., a new bar retrofitted in a vintage Shasta camper. The catering was provided by Café Miranda, who blew everyone away with their numerous dinner stations covering every kind of cuisine your taste buds could desire. Lucy was a hit with everyone, with new props for the year and a remodeled interior that makes the whole camper more efficient and easy to navigate. Thank you Soo and Shawn for choosing us to be a part of your big day, and congratulations!!! Enjoy the photos!
Kelly and Sam wed up in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine at The Bar Harbor Club. The reception was held in a beautiful glass green house where we posted up with our open air booth versus our traditional photocampers. The party was wild and the photobooth was a blast. Thanks again for having us on your wedding day.

There are many aspects to a wedding venue that make it special, and when we arrived to Granite Ridge Estate & Barn in Norway, Maine we found a lot of special. The venue sits on top of what you might call a mountain with a panoramic view of more mountain like surroundings. The gable end of the barn facing the mountains edge was nothing but windows where all the guests can see the view from the table seats. Erica and Reid were the sweetest couple, and their addition of masks of themselves for the camper were hilarious. With a beautiful outside ceremony where they took their vows, soon afterwards cocktail hour ensued and the camper fun began. Guest lined up to get their photos taken and the masks the couple made were very popular. It's hard to get photos with newlyweds, so this was a clever way to do so. Thank you Erica and Reid for a great day of love and celebration.

Day two of a double header weekend, we hauled Lucy down to Bedford, New Hampshire for Chris and Tori's wedding. The wedding was held at the Bedford Village Inn, a very cute venue, with all that New England charm. We arrived and set up shop near the back patio, which was lit with lanterns and a fire pit. After the ceremony and the newly weds had made their vows, the celebration began with your traditional cocktail hours. Guests came in and out capturing their evening, with or without props, just to document their evening and to contribute to the scrap book. The guests would receive a strip for themselves and one for the scrap book, where they could sign their name or leave a message for the bride and groom. The camper echoed with laughter and everyone left with a larger smile on their face. It brings much joy to give people such a youthful experience in it's simplest form. Who doesn't love dressing up in costumes and acting silly. It's those simple things that can bring such happiness. Thanks Tori and Chris for having us to your wedding, and we wish you all the best.
Boy were we busy this weekend! We had a double header of weddings and our first stop was up to Beech Hill Barn in Beautiful Pittston, Maine. The view at Beech Hill Barn is amazing. The view of the mountains and the foliage seems endless. I can only imagine what it looks like with each season. It truly is one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding ceremony. Lucy was positioned next to the barn and across from Fire and Company's trucks providing food and beverages. Once the ceremony had completed and the vows were made, the guests and newly weds ventured up the hillto the barn for cocktails and lawn games. As most weddings do, many people peeked in like a curious, shy cat; yet not quite ready to commit. We just give them time, they always come in by the end of the night. The night was mixed with music provided by Soul Purpose, dancing, celebrating and the youthfulness that camper brings out in all. There never was a dull moment when everything is set up so perfectly. The gang here showed some true talent with their props and poses, where their character shined. Thanks Zia and Adam for including us in your celebration. It was a blast entertaining and documenting your crew!!!
Weddings are the perfect opportunities for families to get together, and for this wedding, absolutely. The Barn at Flanagan Farm was the perfect setting to celebrate the love between two people. The bride and groom are both from Poland and they continued to celebrate with all the wedding traditions from back home, and from what I witnessed was a rambunctious time. Whether in the barn, out in the yard, or in the camper- all the guests were smiling, dancing, and laughing. The children there, immediately were drawn to the photo camper. They started off posing like most do, but soon afterwards they had become my little helpers. They helped clean up props, assist in dressing up the guests, and swatting mosquitoes whenever they flew in. It was nice to include these little helpers, and allow them the opportunity to feel special. But the novelty ran out and they went and played soccer out in the fields. I really can't blame them. The guests really knew how to celebrate, the barn was a ripping and a roaring, and so was the camper. When you can't stop laughing due to the guests, you know you're doing something right. The white gold rose backdrop added a little sophistication while everyone acted a little unsophisticated. The option was there for a nice classy photo, rarely does it happen though. Large groups of people crammed themselves in, really reveling how close they really are. You can really find out how close people are when you shove 10, 15, or 20 people into a camper to take photos. It may sound silly, but when you see it, it's a beautiful thing. Thank you Beata and Andrzej for including us on your wedding day. It was truly a beautiful celebration.
When it comes to weddings, this was the wedding that was meant for us! Bridget and Ganesh orchestrated the perfect wedding garnished with SEVEN Volkswagen buses in the field of the Barn at Flanagan Farm!!! So, when we pulled in with the camper, we just added to the caravan of fun. For their wedding, we built a new backdrop, to keep this wedding’s aesthetic consistent. We built a barnboard backdrop within the camper to look the part of the barn wedding. Although quite heavy, it looks as if you’re in a traditional Maine barn. We set up the camper between the two barns and a little bit after we were up and running the guests arrived. Several guests peered in before the wedding with excitement, with just enough patience to wait until after the ceremony. From where the camper sat, the ceremony sounded beautiful with music and celebration out in the wooded ceremony location.
Everyone flooded out of the trees with smiles toward the Sperry tent for cocktail hour. Many of the guests quickly jumped in the camper to get their photos taken and promptly telling others to get in due to how fun it is. Oh, and how fun it was. The props were flying and the photo strips were too, quickly filling up the scrapbook littered with messages of love for the new married couple. Congratulations Bridget & Ganesh, what a beautiful wedding you had!!!
