Alley and Jon’s original wedding was supposed to happen on July 4th, 2020 at French’s Point Stockton Springs, Maine. Like many other couples, they pushed their large celebration to 2021 and decided to have a micro wedding this summer at Migis Lodge and Panther Pond.
Alley and Jon live in New York City. As you can imagine, the beginning of COVID was tough on them as they both started working from home in their small apartment located in what was the epicenter of the pandemic at the time.
As summer approached they decided to escape the city and head to Panther Pond, Maine, which is where Alley’s Dad lives. They set up mini offices around her father’s cottage on the lake and hunkered down for a few months. In June they decided it would be a fun idea to have a micro wedding since they were here in Maine for the summer. They had already pushed their larger wedding to next season, but they wanted to celebrate their love on their original wedding date in a place they hold near and dear to their hearts, Alley’s family cabin. They started the day on a magical boat ride at Migis Lodge in South Casco, ME and then got married at her Panther Pond cabin. They invited neighbors and friends to gather for an intimate lakeside reception, and in true Maine fashion, they celebrated with a lobster bake.
I’m extremely grateful that I get the chance to work with Alley and Jon on not just one celebration, but two. I can’t wait to document their larger celebration next July!
