hartley mason reserve beach wedding

Hal and Geoff's touching and beautiful wedding day in York, Maine.

I know I could fill an entire paragraph with just one word descriptions of all the fun events and moments from this wedding.  Suffice it to say I enjoyed spending the weekend with these two, and meeting their friends and family (many visiting for the first time from the midwest).  The events started at Hal's family's home/barn (which they basically had to restore) for the rehearsal dinner.  Then, many of the guests were up at the crack of dawn for coffee and SLUICING!  Yes, sluicing.  New to me (and you better believe I jumped in) this involves jumping from the bridge into water on one side of a road, and during the morning tidal shifting water, you get sucked/shot through the "sluice" or tunnel under the road.  It was a blast.

The wedding day begin at the York Harbor Inn, then proceeded to the Harley Mason Reserve for a wedding ceremony overlooking the ocean and beach.  A stunning and peaceful setting for Hal's father (a retired Episcopal priest) to officiate the marriage.  The staff went above and beyond in every way at the Reading Room for the reception, and yikes, did this crew turn the evening into a dance/club scene at the end of the dinner.  #fun  I was honored to document this day, and thanks to all the friendly faces I met along the way.
