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!

All our best, Anne Skidmore and Jordan Luciano of Anne Skidmore Photography



Paul & Terri: Intimate Mountain View Grand Wedding

Terri assured me that her wedding day was going to be beautiful, and boy, was she right!  It was a bluebird day!  Terri & Paul wed on September 20th, 2013 at the classic and historic Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield, New Hampshire.  They had an intimate wedding with forty of their closest friends and family.  Terri’s father escorted her out of the hotel fronts steps and led her to the gazebo on the front lawn to her awaiting groom.  They had a lovely ceremony under the warmth of the sun and surrounded by the stunning White Mountains.  After they officially became Mr. & Mrs., we took their portraits with the mountains and the hotel alone- you really cannot go wrong!  Everywhere you turn, there is another amazing view and stunning spot for portraits.  They held their reception at the club house- a light, bright, and cozy room to celebrate in.  Congrats again you two!  It was wonderful to photograph your day, and also reminded me how much can be captured in just two hours!
