The design team embraced the fort’s wild, overgrown environment, exploring the unruly and unkempt with elements like wind-blown hair and food strewn about – a direct contrast to the order and perfection of most weddings. {the team} Planning + Concept: A Family Affair of Maine Photographer: Emily Delamater Model: Brianna Lueck Dress: @auntwilma Flowers: Field Floral Studio Invitations: Dancing Ink Calligraphy Cake: Autumn Nomad Catering: Lobsterbake Company Hair and makeup: Reeve Baker Jewelry: Loving Anvil

The rustic Maine camp, where Whitney was a camper and later a counselor, was the perfect site for a DIY wedding. The couple, both screenwriters in Los Angeles, hosted multiple craft nights…
