Jessica and Jason envisioned their day surrounded by loved ones in a beautiful place. They threw traditions to the wind to create new ones for themselves. Instead, they opted for an adventurous elopement in Acadia National Park. They chose Acadia for its rugged landscapes and scenic drives. It is the perfect outdoor playground on the east coast! Although summer and fall are the most popular months, it is magical in the winter.
I met Jessica and Jason in Bar Harbor on the afternoon of their adventurous elopement. A popular home base for visitors as the gateway to neighboring Acadia. We drove through the park capturing the gorgeous views along the way. As birds flew overhead, sea mist shimmered in the afternoon sun as we climbed along the rocky shoreline. A storybook moment for these adventurous lovers.
Afterward, we drove up the coast to the top of the mountain, where friends and family gathered at Cadillac Summit. The highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard! As the sun set behind the horizon, Jessica and Jason exchanged vows, surrounded by their loved ones. Once they shared their first kiss, their son ran up to Jessica with flowers he had picked just for her. The sweetest moment! Overall, their adventurous elopement in Acadia was everything they dreamed of.
For half of the year, Cadillac Mountain is the first place in the US you can view the sunrise! Making it the perfect place to watch the sunrise year-round. Note: From May through Oct, vehicle reservations are now required for Cadillac Summit Road between sunrise and sunset.
