Alerin Barn Wedding: Jay & Pauline

“Love is friendship set on fire.” -James Taylor
And their love was one fire! Jay and Pauline, your wedding blog was so fun to edit because you two are so cute and your wedding day was just so beautiful! Jay and Pauline wed on August 23rd at the amazing Alerin Barn in Vermont. The Alerin barn is surrounded by the mountains, fields, flowers, wooden fences, goats, and they have an classic New England inn and barn to host the wedding day celebrations. It’s one of the most unique and stunning venues, and to top it off the owners are just the sweetest! Jay and Pauline got ready at different areas at the inn, and they both gave each other special presents during this time. Pauline gave Jay a handsome Rolex, and Pauline received a beautiful pair of diamond earrings that she wore the day of! These two lovebirds had an adorable first look moment in front of the “Sheep Camp”, and we then wandered all over the property for portraits and ended things with the goats. Yes, the goats were a “must” on their list!  It was then time for the ceremony as guests were starting to arrive and a vintage tractor and wagon brought them up to the ceremony site on the hill. They had a beautiful ceremony with a sweet “P♥J” on the birch tree behind them as they committed their vows. There were so many fun touches to the day, and you’ll have to see for yourself below in the imagery. The evening was action packed with friends, family, champagne, oysters, toasts, yummy dinner, dancing, dusk photos and more! Congratulations Pauline and Jay, we had so much fun documenting your wedding day and LOVED working with you two!

Meredith, NH Barn Wedding: Jen & Ken

On August 16th, 2014, I witnessed and photographed a very special day.  Jen married Ken on her parent’s property in Meredith, New Hampshire.  Surrounded by the love of their family, the entire day was very intimate and casual, but one of the most memorable weddings I’ve seen.  Jen greeted me in the driveway with smiles and right away, I felt like part of the family.  Ken and Jen opted for a first look moment in front of the horse barn on the property.  As Ken finalized last minute touches on the details outside, I photographed Jen slipping into her beautiful dress with her mom, LuAnn, and sister, Amy, upstairs in her home.  With one final look out the window towards the ceremony site, it was time for Jen to see Ken.  It’s so engaging to photograph first look moments.  The emotion involved is quite powerful.  We were able to spend some time before the ceremony photographing the two of them in different locations around the property.  It was very important that Emi, their dog, felt very involved in this special day so she had her moments in front of the camera.  After, we carted off to some private locations behind the house to finish portraits.  I love this time.  It’s a wonderful, quiet opportunity for the couple to be alone and reflect on themselves.  The ceremony provided laughter and tears, as it too, was very special.  After they sealed it with a kiss, Emi walked Jen and Ken back down the aisle and congratulated them as dogs know best.  Dinner followed under the tent outside with a proper lobster bake.  I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!  Music played, a first dance was had, the sun was setting, everyone was happy…it was perfect.  The night ended with a proper sparkler send off by the barn.  Thank you Jen and Ken.  I will always remember your wedding day and how wonderful your entire family is.  Enjoy!
