Alerin Barn Summer Wedding: Marianna & Seth

By Jordan Luciano | February 25, 2017

Anne and I are so excited to catch up with all our blogging from the the end of our 2016 wedding season.  There are so many beautiful weddings hitting our blog in the coming months and it’s nice to revisit these weddings as the images are a fresh reminder of why we love our clients so much.  Each wedding is unique and every one of our couples have their own style and character, allowing our blog posts to be constantly changing and fresh.  It’s fun to look back on when I first met Marianna and Seth, the lovely couple whose images follow this.  We met for coffee early in the summer of 2016 on a warm sunny day at our local shop, Frontside Grind.  I always walk away from these meetings even more excited to photograph a couple’s special day as they tell me stories about their family members, the details involved, and I can usually tell right then if I’m going to catch a lot of portraits of them laughing (my favorite).  Seth is a goof and Marianna has the best laugh- a wonderful match.  Alerin Barn continues to be one of my favorite venues.  The moment I walk on the property each time I’m there, I get such a relaxed vibe and it really helps start off my day on a positive note.  The owners of the Alerin barn alway play music from the one radio station that comes in clear from Burlington, Vermont, 104.7- The Point.  It’s the best!  Marianna and Seth’s wedding day was perfectly sunny with bright blue skies.  The farm and fields surrounding the Alerin Barn were alive with farm animals grazing, bees doing their thing, and the local vegetable garden straining to catch the mid-morning sunlight.  I always arrive a bit early to each wedding to be able to photograph the quiet moments before the day really begins.  I found Marianna upstairs in the main inn getting ready while Seth and the guys were goofing off in the bunk house across the driveway.  Marianna and Seth opted for a first look (which I think is a great idea!) and we were able to take lots of portraits both in the sunlight and shade.  The bridal party and family met us before the ceremony so we could capture those portraits and allow Marianna and Seth to attend their entire cocktail hour.  The ceremony is one of the most special parts of the Alerin Barn, sitting up on a hill overlooking the local Vermont mountains and hills.  Guests are carted up in a antique tractor with a wagon attached- this really sets off the vibe for many of the guests to relax and laugh and enjoy the outdoors.  After the ceremony, guests walk down the grass pathway to the cocktail hour near Horned Pout Pond under the pavilion.  After an hour of mingling, drinking cocktails and roaming the property, guests were invited into the Alerin Barn by Marianna and Seth themselves, an Alerin Barn tradition.  Champagne was passed around and Marianna and Seth made quite the entrance down the barn stairs into their first dance.  Hilarious toasts were given and people sure did laugh.  Outside the sun was setting so we hurried out near the fields for a few evening portraits and then Marianna and Seth lit off a wish lantern into the night sky.  Desserts were served out under the pavilion, a bon fire stayed lit all evening and many of the guests danced their hearts out inside the barn.  We can’t express how much we love this venue but if it weren’t for our awesome couples, it wouldn’t matter.  Thank you Marianna and Seth for being such a joy to work with and we hope you enjoy looking through the images from your wedding day once again.  Much love!

Moody Mountain Farm Wedding: Nick & Katrina

By Jordan Luciano | October 27, 2016

The Barn at Moody Mountain Farm is definitely a highlight of our summer when we get to photograph at this lovely venue.  We love it here!  Tucked into the fields of historic Wolfeboro, we can feel the history that lives with this place and it mixes a rustic barn (classic New Hampshire) wedding atmosphere with so much elegance.  We know Nick and Katrina because, not only are they locals to the Mount Washington Valley, but they are wonderful friends of ours and bring so much character and enthusiasm to our climbing community.  I’ve been chatting with Katrina all summer long at our evening cookouts getting the latest news on the details surrounding the wedding day.  I’ve been excited about this day since they booked last year!  Nick, being the goofy character of the two, brought so much fun and laughter to the day while Katrina was absolutely stunning and helped quite Nick up a bit with her looks.  The humor these two share is on another level.  They are one of those couples that are PERFECT for each other.  We lucked out with the rain holding off until the later evening hours and the misty foggy weather created a very cozy atmosphere.  The ceremony was moved into the barn and their friends and families casually lined the perimeter and cheered as they became husband and wife.  While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour on the back side of the barn, we were able to capture a ton of fun portraits of not only Nick and Katrina, but the bridal party and family as well.  Tuckerman Brewery filled many empty mason cups to the brim as well as some signature drinks.  The toasts were underway and dinner soon followed that in the barn.  Guests were free to roam the barn and the property and watch as the traditional watermelon was passed around outside to be perfectly carved into Nick’s crowning of the groom.  As the rain started to fall in the last evening minutes, Nick, Katrina, Austin (my awesome second photographer) and I all ran out into the rain to capture a few final portraits of the couple standing in the giant entrance to the barn.  We try our best to compensate for some fun portraits even if the sunset decides not to show that day.  There was so much dancing and it was so much fun to capture the party!  There is a tradition in Katrina’s family that at every wedding, they crown the groom with a custom watermelon helmet.  I’m so glad I was still around to document this craziness.  Katrina was even crowned with one too!  This was by far the funniest thing I’ve ever photographed at a wedding thus far.  You two are so lucky to have such fun families!  Keep on being you and we can’t wait to see your marriage and family grow!  You two are the best! xo!

New Hampshire Private Home Wedding: Mike & Cate

By Anne | October 10, 2016

Imagine a beautiful white estate in the hills of New Hampshire with mountains off in the distance and a pristine lake down the road.  This was the dreamy place where Mike & Cate wed!  Cate had worked for the family of this private home for about 13 years, and thus this property is a second home to her and this dear family is her second family.  When choosing a place to have their special day, Pine Hill Farm was one that naturally came to mind for these two love birds.  They wed on the most stunning summers day with family and the bridal party staying inside the main house and the cottage house.  They newlyweds opted for a sweet first look moment outside of the main house so they could join their celebration more quickly after their ceremony.  Right around three thirty in the afternoon their nearest and dearest started to arrive for their intimate ceremony at four o’clock.  Cates father made the stunning arbor, while her brother Jim officiated the wedding.  In addition, flowers and bouquets by Emily Herzig Floral Studio were exploding with beauty wherever you looked.  The highlight of the ceremony was when their sweet nephew Jack brought them their rings on his little motorized John Deer tractor.  As he crashed into things and people all the way down the aisle, everyone exploded into laughter.  Soon enough the rings arrived and sealed with a kiss, Mike and Cate were married.  The rest of the afternoon was filled with a colorful cocktail hour filled with laughter, family and good friends.  As dinner began there were thoughtful and hilarious toasts given, and a special moment of meditation to reflect on the day by Cates bridesmaid Jessie.  The rest of the evening was filled with dancing, yummy food, cake, a beautiful sunset, and a perfect nights sky.  We even snuck in some evening portraits right at sunset.  What a day!  Thank you Cate and Mike for having us capture your incredibly beautiful wedding day.  It was a joy and an honor.

Rustic Maine Barn Love: Jamie & Kimberly

By Anne | September 27, 2016

We love this wedding!  It was a true family farm barn wedding in Maine!  Jamie’s grandmother has an absolutely charming farm in New Vineyard, Maine and this was the perfect and very personal place for Kimberly and Jamie to have their special day.  In addition to the beautiful farm, Jamie’s folks live in a stunning lake house just down the road.  Jamie got ready at his parents lake house while Kimberly and her ladies got ready at a rented lake house just a little further down.  We loved Kimberly’s stunning Michal Motil dress, which was a two piece top and skirt!  The best part?  She started in an elegant long skirt to start the day, and then later changed into an adorable short skirt for dinner and dancing!  These two opted for a first look moment so they could spend lots of time with friends and family after their ceremony.  Jamie waited for Kimberly on the dock of his parents lake house, and their reaction to seeing each other for the first time is one of the most expressive and amazing we’ve ever captured!  After their first look we took portraits at the lake house and also back at the family farm!  I mean we had the best of both worlds!  Before we knew it, it was time for these two love birds to get married.  They wed across the street from the family farm, right by the family pond.  Yes, they even had a family pond, so adorable!  After the ceremony everyone walked back to the farm for cocktail hour in the barn.  Dinner was under the tent with warm, sweet and funny toasts filling the air.  After dinner we scooted  to the fields to take portraits under the most incredible sunset we’ve seen all year!  It was on FIRE!  When we returned everyone was back in the barn dancing the night away.  What a totally awesome day!  Congrats Jamie & Kimberly, we loved capturing your beautifully rustic chic Maine family farm and barn wedding!

Maine Barn Wedding: Talicia & Margie

By Anne | September 5, 2016

Let’s start from the top!  We were so fortunate to meet Margie & Talicia through Margie’s sister Gina, who runs an amazing farm (Hancock Family Farm) where we receive our CSA veggies from every summer and early fall.  When Gina explained to us that her sisters wedding was on her parents beautiful farm in Maine, it sounded picture perfect.  We met Talicia & Margie at the Honeyhill Farm, and the was just as beautiful and homey as we envisioned.  These two fabulous ladies wed on a beautiful summers day in July, where everyone chipped in to help make their day so magical.  Margie’s father was putting up garland and running around setting up decorations, Gina did all the flowers with flowers from her farm, Margie’s close girlfriends were helping her get ready and stay calm, while Talicia’s mother and brother were helping her get ready in the barn.  These two brides were just glowing through and through, and their beautiful smiles were contagious!  Before their ceremony they hosted a cocktail hour for their guests to enjoy and get acquainted with the property.  When it was time for the ceremony, Margie’s twin nieces who were the flower girls threw their flowers down the aisles, and then both Talicia & Margie’s mothers walked them both down the aisle.  Their ceremony was personal and sweet, with one of the family pups coming up to the alter for a visit and giving everyone a good laugh.  Soon the girls sealed their marriage with a kiss and it was time to celebrate.  Cocktails on the lawn followed the ceremony while we did portraits.  An amazing Maine lobster meal catered by The Bread & Butter Catering Co. was thoroughly enjoyed by all!  After dinner the the evening was filled with catching up with friends, evening sunset portraits, toasts, and dancing with music by DJ DeVanity.   Wow!  What a day it was and we were so very honored to capture the marriage of two amazing women!

Eagle Mountain House Summer Wedding: Amy & Nichole

By Jordan Luciano | August 26, 2016

Amy and Nichole were married on the second of July, just as they would have hoped.  They celebrated their love in a unique way, always on the second of each month.  Their first date was on July 2nd, five years ago.  They were engaged on December 2nd and often, Nichole would continue to surprise Amy with something most months, always on the second.   Luckily, July 2nd, 2016 fell on a Saturday- a chilly one for the usually holiday weekend.  A cold front moved through, bringing such a refreshing breeze and some really dramatic cloud cover off in the distance.  Nichole loves to read and it was their fitting idea to have their first look in the Jackson Public Library.  After the girls both got ready on opposite floors of the Eagle Mountain House, Nichole awaited Amy’s arrival with her four bridesmaids.  Nichole’s bridesmaids wore a darker shade of blue while Amy’s wore a bright bold blue color.  Each of the girls got to pick out their own favorite Tom’s shoe to wear, a gift from Amy and Nichole.  Amy arrived at the library and all the girls started bawling.  The emotions in the library were so high and it was so neat to have all the bridesmaids witness their first look.  Amy and Nichole each grabbed a book, stepped out into the aisle and faced each other, with the books still covering their faces.  On their count of three, they lowered the books.  Tears! Everyone was crying!  We spent the next hour visiting different locations around downtown Jackson taking portraits and having an absolute blast.  These girls are all so special.  Guests started arriving back up at the Eagle Mountain House- the ceremony was about to begin!  Amy and Nichole were each walked down the aisle by their parents.  A unique ceremony, centered around the love of each other as well as their community, was followed by their fist kiss as brides!  A skip down the aisle and these two snuck out to the bridge just below the ceremony site for a quite moment alone.  Cocktail hour back up on the veranda welcomed the guests and we were able to spend much of the time taking details of the tent and fun portraits of the guests enjoying themselves.  Speeches, followed by a wonderful dinner in the tent, was a prelude to all the dancing that was about to come.  Luckily, I was able to sneak Amy and Nichole away for a few more portraits down the road.  I’m so glad we did!  They were even more adorable than before and we were able to utilize the beautiful evening light.  I stayed for some fun, classic dance moves- Britney Spears definitely brought some people to the middle of the dance floor.  Thank you two for asking us to document your special day.  Amy and Nichole- you two are so special to us and we are so glad we were there to witness it all.  All the best in the world!!

Christmas Farm Inn Wedding: Kyle & Shannon

By Anne | August 17, 2016

Here we have a beautiful couple who wed this past June at one of our favorite venues in Jackson, New Hampshire known as The Christmas Farm Inn.  The mountainous and wooded backdrop of Jackson fit exactly what they envisioned for the location of their wedding day.  The rustic charm of the inn, particularly the barn, and its location up in the White Mountains made Kyle and Shannon fall head over heels with The Christmas Farm Inn.  Their ultimate vision was to have an intimate wedding, in an outdoorsy location with their closest friends and family.  Kyle got ready in “The Barn”, while Shannon was in the “Sugar Shack” just around the corner.  They had their ceremony outside on the front lawn, and included a very sweet tree planting ceremony.  As soon as their ceremony was over we bopped around the Christmas Farm Inn property for portraits and we also went to a couple of incredible spots (with special permission) in Jackson, New Hampshire.  These two were so fun to work with, and Kyle even swooped Shannon off her feet (without any prompting from us or her!) and carried her down the trail to the field of wildflowers.  What a guy!  We were obviously swooning over Shannon’s BHLDN dress and Kyle was looking very sharp is his blue-grey suit, we loved their impeccable style!  The evening was full of laughter, love, dancing, toasts, and to round it out we snuck out for some sunset portraits.  Thank you Shannon & Kyle, we loved capturing your beautiful wedding day!

Popham Beach Engagement: Pat & Becca

By Jordan Luciano | August 17, 2016

Pat and Becca will be hosting their wedding next June at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine.  We are so excited to be there to capture their beautiful wedding and we are also so excited for their engagement photos.  Pat and Becca chose Popham Beach State Park to take their engagement photos as it’s a place they frequent often.  It was such a pleasure to visit the Maine coastline and utilize the historic fort, as well as the water, for many of their photos.  We started the session in Fort Popham meandering around the stairwells and all the different archways.  Making our way down to the water, we stopped for some pictures along the driftwood before venturing into the ocean.  Pat and Becca were so dynamic to photograph, as they sang songs to each other (mostly Becca did the singing) and continuously would burst out laughing.  They will have such a fun life together, that’s for sure!  I’m so glad we were gifted with a beautiful sunset over the Kennebec River to end the evening.  Thank you two for being so awesome!  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding next year!

Pam & Jeremy: Whitney’s Inn Wedding

By Jordan Luciano | August 10, 2016

Pam and Jeremy were married on the most beautiful bluebird day at the Whitney’s Inn in Jackson, NH on June 25th, 2016.  They expressed from the beginning how important it was for them to include their adorable golden retriever, Dakota, in the day surrounded by their best friends and family.  I’m so glad the weather held and all their guests were able to see a typical New Hampshire summer day.  Pam and Jeremy opted for a first look and Pam guessed it for sure…there were tears!  We were able to utilize the open fields right down the road from the Whitney’s Inn for some portraits.  The fields were blooming with yellow flowers which really popped against the blue sky.  We made a special trip down to the covered bridge before returning back to the Whitney’s Inn for family portraits and bridal party portraits.  The ceremony was held in the new woodland site across the street in the woods.  Really beautiful vows were said followed by the first kiss!  The light was hitting just right during cocktail hour and the horses roamed over across the fields to say hello.  A wonderful reception in the Shovel Handle Pub was lively and full of happy tears and lots of love.  I’m so glad we were able to drive up to an overlook for the sunset.  It’s such a special way to spend the last moments of daylight on your wedding day.  Matt Spofford had everyone on the dance floor all night long!  What a fun wedding you two had!  Wishing you all the best in the world 🙂

Mount Washington Hotel Wedding: Joseph & Kristin

By Anne | July 24, 2016

It was such a stunning day on June 18th at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods for Joe & Kristin’s wedding!  Kristin commented that she usually has bad luck with weather, but not on her wedding day!  It was bluebird skies!  All the wedding festivities were hosted right at the Mount Washington Hotel, one of the wonderful benefits of getting married there!  From the bride and groom getting ready in their separate rooms, to the ceremony on the Jewell Terrace, followed by the cocktail hour, and then the celebration hosted in the Presidential Ballroom!  Joe & Kristin opted a sweet first look moment before the ceremony on the iconic porches at the hotel.  We then bopped all over for their portraits, and we then hopped on a bus that took us down the road to look back at the stunning backdrop.  The mountains and the hotel were glorious on their day!  We soon headed back to the Mount Washington hotel as it was time for these two to get married!  They had a sweet ceremony, sealed it with a kiss, and it was time to celebrate!  The evening was filled with lots of laughter, toasts, dancing and we hopped outside for a few sunset photos as well!  Thank you Joe and Kristin, we absolutely loved capturing your wedding day and was an honor to work with such a lovely couple!
