A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to collaborate with an unbelievably talented group of NH wedding vendors on an inspiration shoot. I LOVE shoots like these because they give artists the creative freedom to show their work within the context of a wedding setting.  We chose Aldworth Manor in Harrisville, NH as the backdrop because it is absolutely amazing and also because it is one of the hottest up and coming wedding venues in New Hampshire.  If you don’t already know about Aldworth it is definitely worth checking out for future events.  Aldworth has an breathtaking view of Mount Monadnock as well as a European feel to it with grand arches, sweeping vistas and secret gardens.  It is truly a New England gem.

Sorrell from Events by Sorrell designed and coordinated the shoot and we decided on a colorful springtime feel, complete with the prettiest horse, Uno as a model!  Each amazing vendor brought their talents and energy and the end result shows what you can do with a great team of people!
