Andrea and Martin met in training for Teach For America. Four years later, the two exchange vows in the bride's home state of Maine at the Asticou Inn. The theme? All Maine. Andrea took on the planning herself and incorporated New England style with details like handmade mussel and pearl ornaments, sea urchin place card holders and silver lantern decor. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple chose a Maine favorite — maple and chocolate whoopie pies (from Cranberry Island Kitchen and Wicked Whoopies)! Our favorite part though has got to be the words of advice from Andrea's kindergarten class displayed next to the guest book. We are so excited to share all of the gorgeous photography from this seaside wedding shot by Sue Kessler of Christian Oth Studio.
