So, I have photographed a couple weddings at summer camps, and I’ve got to say, it’s a pretty brilliant idea. They are typically available May-June and September-October, which are pretty much the ideal months to get married in Maine. You get plenty of cabins for your wedding party and guests to sleep in, a lake, a dining hall, and the rustic charm of a summer camp. This past summer, I photographed an amazing wedding at Kingsley Pines camp located on Panther pond in beautiful Raymond, Maine. Under an hour north of Portland, it is easy to get through by a beautiful scenic drive. They can host weddings of just about any size in several buildings around the camp. The wedding I photographed had dinner in the dining hall followed by dancing in the large barn. They also offer a few luxury cabins with all the comforts of home, perfect for a honeymoon suite and the wedding party or couple’s families.
They offer a great waterfront ceremony site with rows of benches under a dramatic oak tree.
