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!

Eagle Mountain House Wedding: Aly & Randy

By Jordan Luciano | July 15, 2016

June 11th, 2016 was a day I was really looking forward to this year.  I met Aly and Randy last September when I photographed their engagement session on top of Foss Mountain in Eaton, NH.  With their black lab, Max, in tow, we had such a fun evening all getting to know each other and taking in the view on top of the mountain.  I’ve been so excited to see their wedding come together after getting hints here and there from Aly about all the details.  The textures, vibrant colors and beautiful flowers all came together.  Carrie and her team, from Dutch Bloemen Winkel, installed a beautiful hanging centerpiece down the middle of the tent.  Individual glass jars were hanging with different colorful wildflowers in each.  The cake installation was a surprise for Aly and Randy, with White Mountain Cupcakery and Dutch Bloemen Winkel working as a team to pull this one off.  The beautiful invitations were hand painted by a Florida artist named Shannon Kirsten.  After spending an hour or so photographing details around the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson, NH, I met Aly and the girls in her room as they we just about to slip into their dresses.  Laughter, hugs and girl time is always so special to each bride.  Before we met Randy on the bridge for the first look, we took a few portraits of Aly alone waiting in anticipation to see her groom.  The day was misty, raining lightly on and off.  The rain forced us either under the umbrella or seeking shelter under the leaves.  These two weren’t phased a bit.  After their portraits, we met up with the bridal party and families for some portraits, Max included!  The CUTEST flower girls were all full of energy.  I think they were extra excited to walk down the aisle at the ceremony 🙂   A quick and sweet ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour on the veranda.  I spent some time in the tent photographing the details before guests were invited in.  Dances, toasts and dinner were underway.  The rain didn’t matter.  Shark Martin, a fun local band, was so awesome at getting everyone up on the dance floor and they kept it full all night long!  I wish we could relive this day all over again you two!  I guess that is what pictures are for.  Enjoy 🙂

Portland Maine Engagement Session: Talicia & Margie

By Anne | July 11, 2016

We heart these two!  We had so much fun with Talicia & Margie in downtown Portland, Maine and also right outside the Portland Company Complex a few weeks ago.  While these two are getting married at the stunning family farm this weekend, we love a little juxtaposition and opted for a more urban setting for their engagement session.  It was pretty fitting for them since they used to live in Brooklyn, and now live right outside of New York City!  We wandered all over the docks in downtown Portland, and the fun graphic backgrounds just didn’t end.  Of course we found some classic fishing boats and lobster traps to work with, and wrapped up the shoot down and around the buildings of the Portland Company Complex!  With nothing but laughter, smiles and a whole lot of love throughout their engagement shoot, we are so excited for their big day this weekend!

Wentworth Inn Wedding: Dan and Ellen

By Jordan Luciano | July 1, 2016

June 4th, 2016 unfolded into such a beautiful New England day.  Ellen and Dan hosted their wedding at The Wentworth Inn right in the center of Jackson.  Austin and I arrived early to photograph details around the Inn and then split up and both photographed Dan and Ellen getting ready on opposite sides of the Inn.  The ceremony was held at Our Lady of the Mountains Church in North Conway.  After a beautiful and traditional catholic ceremony, Ellen and Dan exited with all smiles.  We quickly stopped at the scenic vista for some portraits and continued on to the Wentworth for family and bridal party portraits.  Portraits with Ellen and Dan were taken around Jackson, utilizing some afternoon shade before returning to the cocktail hour on the back porch of the Wentworth.  The reception in the tent was underway with a really sweet first dance, followed by toasts and then dinner.  Since the weather was so amazing, guests all meandered around the property and we were able to take a ton of fun portraits outside the tent.  The Brandy Band from Boston rocked it all evening.  They are so great!  Guests were up and dancing before they even got their salad course!  Ellen slipped into her “evening” wedding dress and was ready to dance the night away in it.  Ellen and Dan wanted some final evening sunset portraits so we walked across the golf course to watch the sun set for the evening.  Cake was cut, desserts were served and everyone danced the night away.  It was hard to leave this fun celebration!  Congratulations again Ellen and Dan.  Your wedding was an absolute blast.

Springtime Whitney’s Inn Wedding: Matt & Bethany

By Anne | June 28, 2016

On May 21st the apple blossoms were bursting with beauty at The Whitney’s Inn, in Jackson, New Hampshire for Bethany & Matt’s special day!  The timing of the blossoms was impeccable, and to top it off we had the most beautiful day with a few clouds rolling in to offer the most beautiful even light!  Bethany had her beautiful long brown hair done by local favorite Debony Salon, and then got ready in the main inn with her bridesmaids.  Meanwhile, Matt was with his groomsmen in the cottages getting all dapper.  A close family friend created all the beautiful arrangements specially for Bethany, and the colors popped perfectly against Bethany’s bridesmaids deep blue dresses.  Matt’s groomsmen were looking sharp in their grey suits, but when they took off their jackets, they had classy leather suspenders to sport!  Bethany & Matt had their ceremony in the woodland site at The Whitney’s Inn, and after they sealed it with a kiss we did a big group photo of everyone there in front of the Whitney’s Barn!  Fun!  Next we bopped around to a few different spots for the bridal party photos, and then it was time for the newlyweds to have some time together.  We always love to do some portraits at the Inn, as it is so classic, but we also love to make sure we get some mountain photos in there as well!  We even passed a logging operation, and got a few unique portraits with the cut logs behind Bethany and Matt, such a cool graphic look!  And then the fields were bursting with dandelions, so pretty!  It was then time for these two to get back to their party!  Filled with dancing, toasts, and their friends having the time of their lives- this crew knew how to party!  Before the night ended we snuck out for some final dusk portraits!  Thank you Bethany & Matt, what a day!  We loved capturing your springtime wedding at The Whitney’s Inn!
