Acadia Elopement: Exploring a New England Gem in Maine

A & R first reached out to us about their Acadia Elopement in December of 2021. They were looking to plan a day that felt stress-free, intentional and truly them.  They came all the way from New Jersey and were set on eloping somewhere in New England, but weren’t sure where. 

In the early days of planning, we discussed the many different location options here in New England, including Franconia, Conway, and of course, Acadia! They ultimately decided on the latter.

We might be a little biased, but of all the beautiful New England spots we’ve been to, Acadia is our favorite for elopements. It’s the perfect spot to make a long weekend out of because of all the options you have there. In downtown Bar Harbor you’ll find amazing restaurants, cute, locally owned shops, and of course, fun outdoor activities just a few minutes away.

It never ceases to amaze us that whenever we come here, we always leave with a fresh perspective.  The results are different from couple to couple, the time of day and the season. We love coming to Acadia, and as New England elopement photographers, it has become a second home. The folks at our favorite restaurant already know us by name. We already have our favorite spots in the park, but every new visit is an opportunity to love and get to know something new about this New England gem in Maine. 

We were incredibly honored to be their only guests, witnesses and photographers. From their getting ready at their gorgeous Vrbo to their emotional first look, ceremony at Schooner Head, to so many little moments throughout the day - this was such a special day to be a part of! We explored cliffs, forest paths, danced to soul music, and ended the day eating amazing raspberry jam cake. 

Take a peek below to see some of the beautiful moments we captured of A & R’s beautiful Acadia elopement.
