Amy & Brian | A Seaside Engagement Session

I am so happy to share a few photos from Amy and Brian’s seaside engagement shoot! We spent some time exploring the gorgeous New Hampshire coastline and taking in the warm salty fall air together.  I totally fell in love with the historic fishing houses and pretty much everything about these two.  They are sweet and funny and completely in love.  Their wedding is sure to be as beautiful as it is fun!

Michelle & Ben | Married | Les Zygomates Wine Bar

I am so excited to share the lovely wedding photos of Michelle and Ben today!  This couple was so fun and their Boston wedding was warm, intimate and as genuine as can be.  Weddings like this make my heart swell and I am so honored to be a part of them.

Michelle and Ben started their day getting ready in a relative’s apartment building overlooking Cambridge. They had their first look on a bridge right over Storrow Drive and almost caused an accident from the well wishing drivers below. Their beautiful black and gold colors could be found all throughout the details of the day, even in the hand painted gold wine bottles for the centerpieces.  Each guest received a huge caramel apple from a local orchard.  Michelle is an avid runner (we’re talking marathons here) and Ben owns his own Taekwondo school so the two are active and possibly a bit competitive 😉  Their ceremony and reception were held at Les Zygomates Wine Bar in Boston and the food and drink were amazing. Ben was not allowed to have a Taekwondo themed wedding but he did manage to sneak in a samurai sword for the cake cutting.  Michelle’s bouquet held nine yellow flowers in remembrance of loved ones that couldn’t be there and a few pictures of her dog babies.

Congratulations to an amazing couple!  May you always enjoy your amazing race together!

Caitlin and Will | Nauticus Marina Cape Cod Wedding

Caitlin and Will were married on a glorious September day at the lovely Nauticus Marina on Cape Cod. From Caitlin’s gorgeous dress and accessories to the incredible view of the harbor, this wedding was about as pretty as they come.  The nautical flags blew in the wind as the sun set and the guests enjoyed amazing food by The Casual Gourmet .  Their parents hired a painter to be there painting in the scene of the ceremony and he was there all day working as guests checked in and watched the progress. It was the quintessential cape cod wedding and I loved being there with such a fun couple and crowd. Congratulations to Caitlin and Will!

Anna and Felix | New Hampshire Lakeside Woods Wedding

Anna and Felix were married at the bride’s family cottage on Sunset Lake in Greenfield, NH.  The amazing details of this earthy and elegant wedding were designed by the very talented Blossom Partners and I don’t think I could love them any more. Feathers?  Yes please! Hand dyed blue fabrics? Swoon.  They pretty much had me with the invitations and it only got better from there.  It was perfect from start to finish and I am so excited to share all the beauty.

Anna and Felix are both instructors at the North Carolina Outward Bound School and so the couple wanted to incorporate their love of nature in their intimate wedding.  They chose the family’s lakeside cottage as the setting and cleared a path through the woods for the ceremony.  Feather markers led the way and warm blankets were available for guests.  There was a campfire set up and ready to go next to the “tent city” for any guests who wanted to camp there.

Felix has a very musical family and not only did his family provide the gorgeous ceremony and cocktail music, the entire family band took over the stage during the reception (Felix on drums) and rocked it out for the guests!  Groove Authority kept the crowd dancing the rest of the night.  Anna and Felix both love ice cream and served it with dessert instead of cake from Bedford Farms Ice Cream. For dinner, the guests were treated to the amazing farm to table food from Mayfair Farm in Harrisville, one of my personal favorites. Joe Pye Weeds brought the perfect mix of light and airy flowers to compliment the amber and blue details and the whole affair was set under and on Monadnock Tent‘s lovely tent and farm tables.

Beyond all of the beauty from this wedding there was also a wonderful sense of love and happiness.  Anna and Felix were both so relaxed and happy throughout the day and it was a truly a joy to work with them. Congratulations to a beautiful couple!
