Marianmade Farm Wedding: Kacie & John

Jill Hoyle Photography

The amazingly talented Jill Hoyle sent over these photos from Kacie & John’s fall wedding at Marianmade Farm and I am in awe! She captured this sweet couple, their adorable dog, the details, the festivities, and the grounds of the farm with such thought and care. Though I’m a little over a week away from my 2019 wedding season, I loved reliving this autumn celebration through Jill’s photos – I hope you do, too!

Maine Homes Magazine Michelle Peele Floral

The Maine Homes Magazine article featuring our house in Alna was published earlier this spring, but it was just added online this week. We were so pleased with how this shoot came together and are so thankful that our two dogs, Abby and Mason, who both died late last year, were included in the final selection of images.

The article makes me long for warmer, brighter summer days. It’s hard to believe that the lupines pictured below will be blooming in less than two months!

As the former owner of a lavender farm, I knew that I was going to love everything about Lauren & Jarod’s wedding day when I learned how they were incorporating my favorite flower into their wedding celebration. Not only did lavender abound, this couple couldn’t have been more down to earth and kind – it was an honor to be a part of their festivities!

Lexi & Matt Photography captured Lauren & Jarod’s wedding at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath perfectly with their crisp, clean photography style. The following are just a few of my favorites from this very special day. For even more, be sure to visit this post from Lexi & Matt!

2018 Wedding Flowers

Marianmade Farm Wedding with Michelle Peele Floral by Alexandra Roberts

2018 was another incredible year filled with happy couples and beautiful flowers. Though I haven’t seen photos from all of the weddings I collaborated on, here’s a sample of a year that took me to weddings up and down the coast of Maine, from the rocky beaches of Castine to the wooded coves of Phippsburg.

A big thanks to the talented photographers I’m lucky to work with who take such care in capturing the many moments and the thoughtful details of our clients’ wedding days.

Castine Wedding: Becca & Nick

Blue Hill Maine Weddings

I loved having the opportunity to travel up the Maine coast to Castine for the first time for Becca & Nick’s June wedding this past summer. These two were an absolute joy to work with, so it’s particularly lovely to be able to relive this day through Lara Kimmerer’s beautifully timeless images.

A special thanks to Sarah of Daisies & Pearls for making sure this coastal fête went perfectly!

What fun it is to relive this magical summer day! Norah & Will’s August wedding at Marianmade Farm was a highlight of the summer. A sweet couple, summer blooms, lavender fields at their peak, and an adorable golden retriever in attendance – what more could you ask for in a wedding?

I always love it when photographer, Alexandra Roberts, is behind the lens at a wedding I’m working as well. She captures the day so well, always telling the story with such authenticity and care. A special thanks to Refinery Events for making sure Norah & Will’s wedding weekend went off without a hitch!

Wedding photos from the 2018 season are beginning to make their way into my inbox now that the fall season is beginning to wrap up and I’m having the best time reliving these beautiful wedding days all over again. The first up for 2018 is Amber & Ryan’s beautiful Marianmade Farm wedding, captured so perfectly by Siobhan at Maine Tinker. It was a joy to work with this sweet couple over the last year – their sweet personalities sure shine through Siobhan’s lovely imagery!

With my first wedding of the season coming up this weekend, I have light-filled, summer wedding days in June on my brain. Here are a few photos from Laura & Heath’s beautiful celebration at Marianmade Farm that I never got around to sharing on my blog. I loved collaborating with this sweet couple and bringing their early summer garden party vision to life.

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Maryann & Ben

It’s such a treat to be able to relive Maryann & Ben’s colorful, vibrant summer wedding as the weather hasn’t quite turned for good here in Maine yet. Looking at these bright photos on a grey April day is a well-needed reminder of how wonderful summer in Maine really is.

These two were married in a beautiful ceremony at Marianmade Farm and enjoyed dinner with their guests in the rustic barn before dancing the night away under a clear top tent. Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls was on hand, working tirelessly, to make sure everything looked perfectly and Trillium, per usual, kept the guests happy with their amazing food.

I was extremely fortunate to be able to use as many seasonal and local flowers as I possibly could, as the color palette was not limited and Maryann & Ben wanted the flowers to shine as their main decorative element. The live chandelier installation in the clear top tent was a joy to create and I’m so thankful that Elvira Kalviste traveled up to Maine from Brooklyn to capture the details so perfectly.

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Genevieve & Ed

Marianmade Farm Wedding with Michelle Peele

While searching for dahlia bouquets for a press request, I realized that I’d yet to share this beautiful September celebration on my blog. Genevieve & Ed’s wedding was a fantastic day at Marianmade Farm with Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls at the helm and Meredith Perdue behind the lens. I’m glad the day is finally getting its spotlight!

It’s nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite month to work with seasonal flowers, but if I had to September would be right near the top. Dahlias, scabiosa, garden roses, zinnias, ranunculus – this wedding had it all!
