A Romantic Waterfront Wedding at the Inn at Ocean's Edge in Lincolnville, Maine

Jamie Pillet (28 and a talent agent) and Alex Dollin (30 and a news producer and reporter) left their home on Long Island, New York, for a destination wedding at the Inn at Ocean's Edge in Lincolnville, Maine. A former vacation spot for Jamie's family, the couple knew it would be the perfect place to celebrate their nuptials. They rented the entire bed-and-breakfast for the weekend, so friends and family wouldn’t have to travel after the party. “It was such a thrill to introduce our closest friends and family to a spot that had become so special to us,” Jamie says. “Almost our entire guest list stayed on-site at the inn, enjoying the ocean views all weekend.” For the couple’s traditional Jewish ceremony, Jamie’s friend sang the seven blessings in Hebrew, and the couple exchanged vows under a chuppah embellished with greenery and pink and peach blooms. Before the ceremony, the couple signed a ketubah (Jewish wedding contract), which was painted by Jamie’s father. “He did a watercolor of the view from the balcony of the inn,” the bride says. “It felt perfect, since my dad had picked that inn for us to visit on our Maine vacation almost 10 years earlier.” The couple brought their alfresco summer celebration to life with a palette of pink, sage green and champagne, along with glitzy decor and pink and peach blooms. For their menu, Jamie and Alex embraced Maine’s delicious coastal cuisine with an oyster bar and local wine. “Trillium takes so much care with their food, and they use as many local ingredients as they can. Our guests loved everything,” the bride says of their dinner feast. “The presentation was just wonderful as well.” The couple kicked off the dancing with a celebratory hora, and the eight-piece band Encore from Boston kept the dance floor packed. “They were incredible,” Jamie says. “We had always envisioned live music by the ocean for our wedding, so this was non-negotiable for us.” A photo booth, provided through Alex’s DJ company, let guests capture memories of their own. Says Jamie: “It was truly the best day of our lives.” —Marissa Hermanson
