Romantic Luxury Picnic Inspiration | Mount Desert Island, Maine

Coastal romance in the form of a luxury picnic. This quiet seaside park on Mount Desert Island provided the best scenery with classic Maine views of the water, trees, and mountains.


Luxury picnics are becoming more and more popular, and they are now easily accessible in the Downeast Maine area with the help of Luxury Picnics Acadia! A local service that provides setup, clean up, and the cutest decor! These picnics are perfect if you're planning a surprise proposal, a small elopement, baby/bridal shower, or just an opportunity to spend time with your love or friends!


When I first heard about this new business in the area, I instantly thought of how perfect it would be for couples who are wanting to propose or celebrate their elopement! So I reached out to Tabitha of Luxury Picnics Acadia and asked if she would be interested in doing stylized shoot to provide photographic inspiration for future clientele. I was so excited when she told me she was on board! We collaborated with a few other local businesses to create the perfect Maine picnic vibe - Bar Harbor Catering Company provided charcuterie, Maine lobster rolls, a Maine blueberry pie, and cocktails for the couple to graze on. The food was served on hand-crafted wooden charcuterie and grazing boards made by my talented dad of East of Acadia Woodworking! We added some beautiful floral arrangements designed by Floret who is located right in Mount Desert. And last but not least, our model Nicole was glammed up by Bridget Knowles who is a stylist at the Alchemist Salon in Ellsworth.


All of the beautiful details and talent made my vision come to life, and then some! We even staged a surprise proposal, popped some champagne, and tasted some of the yummy food (and drinks) to get the full effect! Scroll through all of the beautiful photos below and start dreaming about your next event!
