Ohana Lifestyle Shoot

When it comes to the beautiful Seacoast, we are lucky to be surrounded by delicious opportunities for the best of the best dining options. We may be biased because these are some great friends of ours, but Ohana Kitchen is high on our list of favorites.

Bringing their love of Hawaii to the Portsmouth area, Stacy and Jay have created the perfect gem to indulge in poke bowls and burritos curated with only the freshest ingredients. What better spot to enjoy one of these treats than with your toes in the sand watching the waves crash?

Fresh ingredients are usually the prettiest, right? Ordering any item from Ohana Kitchen will for sure lead to something that looks just as awesome as it tastes. We backdropped the vibrant pops of color their poke bowls create with a more muted palette + yellow and turquoise pops, perfect for a classy beach fiesta with your friends. Some extra pops of pretty provided by Spindrift Sparkling Water were the refreshing cherry (or lime, raspberry or grape..) on top.

{Everyone Loves A Giveaway}

Free stuff is great, but free food + everything you need to create a kick butt beach party for four really takes the cake. After having our fun and bringing this brand design to life, we offered all of these goods to our followers in a public giveaway. One lucky winner got to take home our whole collection from this curated tablescape for 4 including some tropical outdoor plates by Tommy Bahama, a beautiful beach bag, Magnolia Beach Table Cloth, and plenty of poke bowls and burritos from Ohana. That’s one delicious giveaway.

Signature Cocktail Inspiration For Your Summer Wedding In Maine

Signature Cocktail Inspiration For Your Summer Wedding In Maine

One question we hear repeatedly : “What’s a good signature cocktail?” We have compiled some of our favorites to inspire you and get your mouth watering, while also giving an option for some local Maine flair for your seacoast wedding!

In search of your dream wedding in Maine



Here you are, engaged! Of course it would happen, you both committed to each other a long time ago, probably while hiking the spiritual road to Machu Picchu. But here you are now, actually engaged and ready to plan a wedding. And although you are over the moon and can't wait to jump in and find that perfect place to celebrate with all the people you both love and adore, while dancing the night away - something inside tells you that you need something different. Different than a hall or a ballroom, something really meaningful. You need something that connects to you, and who you are together. Yes! You are right.

Many of our couples who decide to marry in Maine might not live here, but they have a connection to the ocean, the mountains, or it's the perfect quaint escape from city life where they can truly connect with their loved ones. There is something about Maine that transports time...almost like the summers of 1960s called and they want you to bring their vintage canoe out for a tour around the lake. 

Maine is not glamourous...but it is luxurious.

Luxury is a feeling, a level of exclusivity, privacy, comfort, and peace. This is what a Maine wedding feels like. The beauty of a Maine wedding is its blank canvas and the natural surroundings. Are you a luxury Maine bride? Contact us for our preferred list of Maine venues, private homes, and secret reception locations throughout the state.
