Eagle Mountain House Wedding: Siiri & Nate

On September 6th, 2014, Siiri watched the clouds roll into the Mount Washington Valley on the afternoon of her wedding day.  “Please don’t rain, please don’t rain.  Do you think it’s going to rain?”, she kept asking.  Nate waited for her at the ceremony site and watched a few rain drop fall from the sky.  Siiri was adamant about having the ceremony outside overlooking the mountains in Jackson, NH at the Eagle Mountain House.  We all watched as the clouds got darker and darker and anticipated a complete downpour in the middle of the ceremony.  Somehow, the rain held.  Siiri walked down the aisle towards Nate and Roy Prescott, delivered a wonderful performance as Justice of the Peace.  It didn’t rain. Earlier that afternoon, I was able to capture many moments with Siiri and her bridesmaids as they got ready.  There were dance parties, many hugs, tears and laughter.  Siiri was so full of life and excited to see her husband-to-be at the alter.  She and Nate opted for portraits after the ceremony, and it was inevitable- it rained.  Siiri and Nate were up for the adventure capturing portraits in the rain.  After the rain turned into a complete downpour, we finished the portraits on a private spot on the veranda of the Eagle Mountain House. I’m happy we did.  It was beautiful!  The evening finished with heartfelt toasts, a lively first dance, and a wonderful dinner.  Matt Spofford had the dance floor crowded all night!  Siiri and Nate, thank you.  You two were so wonderful on your wedding day, and still are.  I thoroughly enjoyed capturing your very special day.

Hardy Farm & Weston’s Farm: Mike & Kim Engaged

Oh I had such a fun engagement shoot with Mike and Kim! In August we met up on a Monday afternoon at a family owned farm in Fryeburg Maine known as Weston’s Farm. I love this place! They have beautiful gardens, produce, barn and they don’t use any GMO seed either, which I think is pretty special. Oh, and they make killer whoopie pies and pies! Thus, we started their engagement session there, just bopping around all the beautiful spots at the property. Next we headed over to the elegant and classic venue in Fryeburg known as The Hardy Farm. Their beautiful white barn never gets old to use in photos, and it’s the only one of it’s kind in the area! Kim slipped into a cute dress for this portion of the shoot, so cute!  And the gardens at The Hardy Farm were just booming too!  In addition, Mike & Kim have a passion for the White Mountains as they hike and ski here regularly, so we wanted be sure to get some mountain vistas in their photos too. We headed down the road to some fields, but along the way we stopped at some cornfields that I just couldn’t resist!  Oh sweet summer corn, sweet young love!  Perfect!  We continued on to some fields down the road that are absolutely beautiful with the White Mountains in the distance.  We wrapped up the shoot at dusk, and for their drive home I had bought them some whoopie pies and blueberries from Weston’s Farm to help them have energy for the drive home that evening.  Yum!  Congrats Mike & Kim!  I cannot wait for you wedding next year at the Mount Washington Resort!
