York Harbor Reading Room is such a beautiful venue for a wedding. The location overlooking the sea is breathtaking, and the venue itself is gorgeous – both beautifully decorated and delightfully cozy. The staff is also fantastic, especially wedding coordinator Mary Mace.
Liesl and the girls got ready at the York Harbor Inn across the street, and although she and Ryan chose not to see each other before the ceremony, we took some family and wedding party photos beforehand so that they would have time to enjoy some of cocktail hour with their guests. The ceremony was lovely, in the sweetest little church just a couple of miles down the road in York, Maine. I loved that it was filled with light, and also that the pastor was a woman (she was fabulous!)
Liesl and Ryan were so fearless during their couples portraits, standing out on the rocks below the Reading Room and overlooking the bay. These are some of my favorite ever beach couples portraits, so thank you both for trusting me and going with my crazy idea!
There’s lots more detail about the day coming in the blog post – for now, I hope you enjoy the teaser slideshow! I very much hope to return to photograph another York Harbor Reading Room wedding next year.
