Emily’s family has been vacationing in Maine from Virginia since 1990. Now living in Chicago, Emily and Zak chose to exchange their I Do’s in Hancock Point, the sweet village where her family has a summer camp. Combing elements of their Catholic and Jewish backgrounds, Emily and Zak wrote their own ceremony and exclaimed their giddy love in front of nearly 200 guests.
How they met, in Emily’s words:
Zak and I met at a New Year’s Eve party in Chicago. I had just moved and only new one person- Mia Clark (from sailing school in Maine)- who happened to go to Kenyon College with Zak in Ohio. She invited me to the party at Zak’s house. We were friends for 6 months and then started getting romantic!
On to the photos…
What a sweet scene. The family’s Model A, which every woman in the family has used on their wedding day.
Emily and her girls got ready on the front porch of her family’s cottage.
Meanwhile, Zak was across town doing the same.
Emily is the oldest of five sisters!
The dance floor was packed all night long!
Happy marriage, Emily and Zak! I loved coordinating the logistics of your wedding day for you, and have been hearing the smiles in J and Whitney’s voice all week long as they rave about your amazing celebration! Congratulations!!
