Seacoast Wedding | Pepperrell Cove

What happens when a wedding planner plans her own wedding? 

Something magical happens…

On a beautiful Saturday in January, Leslie Jensen-turned-Estes and her prince charming tied the knot at Pepperrell Cove in Kittery Point, Maine.

After planning hundreds of weddings throughout her career, Leslie knew exactly what she wanted—a weekend brunch celebration! Partnering with many vendors over the years, Leslie knew right away which local talents would turn her dream wedding into a reality!

She and her fiancé Jake chose to host an intimate brunch for 65 people on a Saturday morning during the winter. Here’s how the day was set up…

*An open bar and separate bloody mary bar welcomed guests upon arrival.  Passed appetizers (including mini chicken and waffles, french toast shooters, and mini avocado toasts) made their way through the room. Does brunch get any cuter? We think not! 

*Jake’s mom married the couple, which made it an extra sweet and memorable family moment…

*Each guest arrived at his/her table place to see a personalized wood cutout of his/her name, along with a mini popover and maple butter. How “Maine”!

*For the main course? Lobster and short rib benedicts! And a donut bar from Lovebirds Donuts. Sounds dreamy…

*A then a champagne bar!! An elegant touch indeed!

Seacoast Wedding | Lovebirds Donuts

Leslie and Jake live near Pepperell Cove, so it was particularly meaningful for them to host guests at a venue in their neighborhood. 

The night prior to their wedding, the families hosted a rehearsal dinner at a house they rented by the water. On this January evening, they enjoyed a special night relaxing with their friends during a Seacoast snowstorm—simply magical…
