Are you planning your surprise summer Acadia proposal? We can help! We have decades of experience in Acadia National Park and that experience is how we know all the “secret spots” like the amazing meadow of blooming lupine that Brendan and Casey got to finish their sunset proposal session strolling through!
When Brendon first reached out to us from Rhode Island, he knew he wanted to propose to Casey in Acadia National Park, but was having difficulty finding suggestions beyond Cadillac Mountain. Since Cadillac Mountain in June can get pretty crowded and he was looking for something a little more private and special, he was open and excited when we made a few suggestions for some less well-known spots. From there we started planning his surprise proposal!
Not only did Brendon pull off a sunset summer Acadia proposal in a gorgeous location, but he even managed to surprise Casey by inviting her best friend to pop out and join in the fun!
It’s always such a blast to be a part of the behind the scenes and to help our couples coordinate a truly unique experience. We were able to meet Casey’s best friend down the road to hide her car and hike to the location together so she and her fiancé wouldn’t get lost. It added a whole extra layer to the entire proposal and we loved being there for all of it!
After the big surprises and hugs and laughter all around, we spent a little time getting some portraits in their proposal location with that traditional Acadia look and feel, and then told Casey and Brendon about a little place we knew of where the mid-June lupine were all in bloom. Casey was really excited about that, so we headed there and finished the evening amidst the golden light and wildflowers. It was magical!
Brendon and Casey- thank you so much for making us a part of your summer Acadia proposal and for allowing us to help you find some truly special places in the heart of that park we love so well!
Golden light overlooking Acadia National Park mid-summer- yes, please!
It’s all hugs and laughter when your best friend joins the party!
Seriously! How magical is this? Lupine and sunset- a summer Acadia proposal dream!
Let us help you plan your sunset proposal in Acadia National Park:
It really is our favorite place on the planet and certainly one of the top National Parks in the country! Our process for Acadia proposals starts with getting to know the proposer and understanding what their vision of the event is. We’ll then work with them to find the best location and time of day to propose in Acadia and work with them in any way we can to help with the remainder of the planning and keeping it a secret.
If proposing in Acadia on Cadillac Mountain at sunrise is what speaks to you, then we’re all for helping you plan it. But often this idea has less to do with personal connection and more to do with not having a strong familiarity with the park. Kate has been visiting Acadia every year since she was a child and introduced Keith to it when they shot their first wedding together there. We now spend several months a year exploring the park while we stay at our family’s home near Beech Mountain. It is with this passion and knowledge of the park that we can find the perfect place for your surprise proposal in Acadia and be there with you to photograph the first chapter in your wedding story.
We intentionally don’t give out too many of our secrets here for the benefit of our couples. If you’re interested in working with us to photograph your Acadia National Park proposal we’d love to chat with you! Let’s start making plans! Contact us now!
