The great outdoors is a glorious backdrop for an impeccably styled wedding shoot. Whether your preference is rustic, garden, country, or just pure romance, there’s a wealth of ideas in these beautiful photos. The Bangs Island Mussels commercial fishing vessel is the setting for an evocative wedding vow renewal ceremony, shot on Casco Bay in Portland, ME.
