1888 Wedding Barn Bethel Maine
Stephanie and Matthew had a beautiful day at the 1888 Wedding Barn Bethel Maine. The day took lots of planning from afar, but it was so worth it! They had their wedding ceremony at the Sunday River Covered Bridge and reception at the 1888 Wedding Barn. We did our best to take advantage of every beautiful backdrop Maine had to offer in between.
Steph and Matt, thank you for involving us with your special day. We could not have picked a better wedding ourselves to photograph on our own wedding anniversary!

How did you both meet?
Stephanie: “I met Matt through one of my Freshman roommates. We were in class when a kid on crutches came up to Sarah and said hello. Sarah introduced him as “Massachusetts Matt.” Although Matt will say that I was cold to him when we first met, I was actually just focused and figured I would not see him ever again. I will admit that I tried very hard not to like Matt…but he is very charming and eventually I gave in.”
Matthew: “We met through a mutual friend in Anthropology class. I walked into class and saw my friend Sarah sitting in the front row. I went against my firm beliefs of always sitting in the back row of class and went to sit up front with Sarah because I noticed that she had a very attractive friend with her. I was as charming as I possibly could be but Steph was immune to my powers. She continued to ignore me for about three weeks. My persistence did pay off and eventually she realized that she could no longer resist Massachusetts Matt. Our first date was dinner and a movie at the Drive-In theater.”
What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?
Stephanie: “All of the toasts!!! I was blown away with every speech.”
Matthew: “The speeches!!!!”
What was the funniest?
Stephanie: “When two of the groomsmen (Nick and Ben) made up their own “line dance.” The dance consisted of the two of them jumping and walking around in the middle of the dance floor. It was also funny to watch a few people get confused thinking that it was a real line dance and attempt to join in.”
Matthew:“Watching everyone Wobble. Or watching my friend Jake dance with my grandmother…and then tell me she was a “firecracker” afterwards.”
Advice for future couples?
Stephanie: “Make the wedding a reflection of who you are as a couple. You are going to want to want to make a memory with every guest there so budget time to do so!!”
Matthew: “Make sure you are able to talk to everyone throughout the wedding.”
