Stone Mountain Arts Center Winter Wedding: Marco & Eliza

February 15th, 2014 was the perfect winters day to showcase a wedding for Eliza & Marco.  It was lightly snowing all day, as if the world was a perfect little snow globe.  And lucky for me these two were snow lovers, and were ecstatic about the beautiful ambiance that mother nature gifted them on their wedding day.  Their day was hosted at a personal favorite, the Stone Mountain Arts Center.  It was absolutely charming to photograph with it surrounded by snow and icicles dangling from the roofs.  They had a touching and romantic first look moment down the road in a classic snow covered field and took their portraits near the Stone Mountain Arts Center, with the natural beauty of the area.  I just loved Eliza’s high neck and low back dress- so gorgeous!  Next we were up at a neighbor’s home who allowed us to take some portraits with their view of the White Mountains in the background.  With the light snow, everything just seemed so stunning and elegant!   After we wrapped up the portraits, it was time for these two to tie the knot!  The ceremony was held inside the beautiful main barn with Eliza’s and Marco’s charming pup, Pearl, laying patiently in the aisle.  After they sealed it with a kiss it was time to celebrate with dinner, toasts, and dancing!  We even snuck out for a final snowy portrait to wrap it all up.  Thank you Eliza and Marco, your wedding was a dream to capture, and you two were the best!  Congratulations!  Your wedding day will remain a forever favorite!

Hardy Barn Inspiration: New Hampshire Wedding Magazine Published Winter/Spring 2014

As the snow still falls in the wintery Northeast, Anne and I are beyond excited to share with you a stunning inspiration shoot from this past summer of 2013.  To see it published and sitting on our desks is an honor and treat after such a busy wedding season last year.  The collaboration efforts from some of our favorite vendors in town was extremely professional and a creative benchmark for future shoots.  The weather itself couldn’t have been more beautiful to showcase Fryeburg, Maine’s natural appeal and the historical feel of Hardy Farm.  The day fell together smoothly as we all laughed, pitched off ideas, and took in the most beautiful setting we, personally, have ever seen.  It didn’t hurt that our friends (and personal real-life couple) Jess and Bryan fit into their attire perfectly.  Jess wore two beautiful gowns from, a quickly becoming very popular, Sarah Seven, of Portland, Oregon. Carrie Schribner from Dutch Bloeman Winkel was in her comfort zone designing a floral masterpiece, pulling inspiration from oranges and pinks.  Erin Sampson, of Just Plain Lovely, added her love of beautiful textiles to the main dining table and dessert table.  Debony, of Debony Salon in Jackson, NH, was such a fun asset to the day with her energy and creative ideas.  She really fit Jess’s character perfectly with natural details in her hair and make-up.  McKaella’s Sweet Shop of North Conway topped it off with playful cakes and treats.  Wow.  What a beautiful afternoon we had.  A collection of friends doing what they do best- inspire.  If you live in the Northeast, pick up the latest issue of New Hampshire Wedding Magazine!
