Eagle Mountain House Wedding: Ashley & Darby

By Jordan Luciano | June 23, 2016

Ashley and Darby wed on a beautiful spring day in the White Mountains of New Hampshire at the Eagle Mountain House.  This venue is tucked in the hills of Jackson,  overlooking its 9-hole golf course with views of the mountains.  Guests are free to play golf, hike from trails that leave from the property, enjoy the veranda that extends the length of the hotel and so much more!  I arrived early to photograph details around the hotel, Ashley’s dress and her adorable kitten flats from Charlotte Olympia.  While Corey was photographing Darby and the guys getting ready, I was with Ashley and the girls.  These moments are so fleeting and so special- it’s one of my favorite parts of the day!  Before meeting Darby for the first look, I was able to spend some time with Ashley to photograph her alone and also with her bridesmaids.  There are so many beautiful locations on the Eagle Mountain House property to take portraits.  We were lucky to have some cloud cover which enabled us to walk all over!  The ceremony was held on the 3rd golf tee and was concluded with the firing of a cannon (you’ll see some residual smoke in one of the photos!).  Cocktails on the beautiful veranda was followed by a lively reception in the carriage house.  Carrie, from Dutch Bloemen Winkel, and her staff designed the most beautiful bouquet and flowers at the reception.  The cake and cupcake tower from White Mountain Cupcakery was stunning!  Dinner, toasts and dancing concluded the festivities and we were even able to step out for a few dusk portraits.  Ashley changed into a cute pale pink cocktail dress for dancing the night away.  Thank you two for being a joy to work with.  You both were so full of laughter and smiles and it makes our job so enjoyable 🙂  Congratulations again Ashley and Darby!

Mount Washington & Wildcat Wedding: Dave & Kaitlyn

By Anne | June 21, 2016

Dave and Kaitlyn’s wedding day was nothing short of awesome!  It started at Attitash Mountain, with portraits in Pinkham Notch, their wedding at Wildcat Mountain, a few more portraits at the summit of Wildcat with Mount Washington in the background, and then skiing down on the very last bits of snow!  Wow!  Lets start from the beginning with these two love birds.  Dave and Kaitlyn began their wedding day over at the Attitash Grand Summit with their bridal party and family.  There they had a very sweet first look moment under the pines trees, and then hopped on Molly The Trolley to make their way to Wildcat Mountain for their wedding.  But we had to make some stops along the way for some portraits.  We pulled over for the classic “Welcome to the White Mountain National Forest” sign and then did another quick stop at the Beaver Ponds across from the Pinkham Notch visitors center.  So pretty there with the most beautiful weathered wooden bridge.  Last stop, Wildcat Mountain!  The ceremony was held on a little peninsula of land that had streams running on either side of it, and white streamers were attached to the center aisle tree that lightly blew in the wind.  Dutch Bloemen Winkel worked their magic on that one amazingly!  Beautiful!  After the ceremony, the fun really began!  The bridal party loaded up on the gondolas and a select number of them had their skis all ready to join Kaitlyn and Dave down Wildcat.  But first we had to take some portraits at the summit, and holy stunning with Mount Washington behind them in all its glory!  Next, we documented Kait, Dave, and their skiing crew ripping it down on the very last snow at Wildcat!  We’ll never forget Dave saying “that’s my wife” as he watched Kaitlyn shredding it down in her wedding dress!  Now it was time to celebrate!  The evening was hosted inside the main lodge and was filled with wonderful toasts and everyone dancing into the wee hours of the night!  Thank you Dave & Kaitlyn!  Your wedding was totally magnificent and unique, it was an absolute honor to capture it and get to know you two!

Hardy Farm Spring Wedding: Seth & Ashley

By Anne | June 9, 2016

We were so excited to kick off our spring with Seth & Ashley’s wedding at one of our favorite local venues, The Barn at Hardy Farm.  This place is really special with the main inn dating from the 1700’s and the stunning rustic chic barn built in the 1800’s, it has a charm that cannot be replicated!  Right on the outskirts of the White Mountain National Forest, Ashley and Seth fell for the Hardy Farm for all the lovely character it has, but also because right there they have a woodland ceremony site, garden patio for cocktail hour, sailcloth tent for dinner, and of course, everyones favorite is the elegant white barn for dancing!  Seth and Ashley love the outdoors, hiking, and are always up for an adventure, just our kind of couple!  We were so excited when these two asked us to capture their wedding day this May.  The tulips were just starting to pop, while the trees were trying their hardest to start budding.  Ashley’s flowers by Ampersand Elements played off of a yellow spring forsythia theme in her bouquets, at the ceremony site and out favorite were the centerpieces during the reception that were accented with some succulents.  Ashley was at the main inn getting ready with all her ladies and Debony Salon while Seth was just up the road at the log cabin getting ready with all his groomsmen.  They had a lovely ceremony at the woodland ceremony site, and it was followed by a fun cocktail hour on the garden patio on the side of the main inn.  We wandered all over the property for their newlywed portraits, there are just so many sweet spots right there!  The evening was filled with a fantastic dinner catered by On The Vine Marketplace, dancing with Northeast Event Design rocking it, and we snuck out and went down the road to a scenic spot to do some dusk portraits.  What a day!  Thank you Seth and Ashley, we absolutely loved photographing your beautiful Maine spring wedding!

By Anne | June 6, 2016

Are you ready for a beautiful wedding at the Whitney’s Inn, in Jackson, New Hampshire during the heart of winter?  Well get ready winter brides, this blog post is for you!  Andrea and Josh are such a special couple for so many reasons, to start they were so kind, thoughtful, excited, and of course so very much in love!  And to point out the obvious they just love the White Mountains in the winter months, and that is the reason why the decided to wed at the Whitney’s Inn in January!  There were so many sweet details to help warm their guests up throughout the day including hand warmers, hot cocoa mix, blankets, and hot chocolate.  And even though we didn’t have much snow this winter, somehow Andrea & Josh’s wedding day fell on a weekend when the ground was covered and even the Jackson Falls was iced up nicely!  Andrea was prepared for her winter wedding with her lil’ cowboy boots, white mittens, and handmade white shawl.  Josh, a big fan a the winter temperatures was happy in his suit, with no extras needed!  Tough stuff!  These two opted to have their first look moment off site at a private barn, and we then bopped all over Jackson to their favorite spots including the Jackson Covered Bridge, the Jackson Falls, and the old Jackson Library.  Then these two and their guests had an outdoor ceremony at the woodland ceremony site at the Whitney’s Inn!  It was short and sweet, but something everyone will remember as they cozied up on the benches together with their blankets, hand warmers, and jackets.  Once they sealed it with a kiss the fun was just beginning with family and bridal party portraits, sunset photos, and to top it off- a ride on the horse drawn carriage!  Inside the barn the evening was full of toasts, dancing, cake balls, and to top it off- fireworks!  Josh & Andrea surprised all their loved ones with the most fantastic fireworks display!  At the very end of the evening we did a special portrait with sparklers that seemed to wrap up their day perfectly!  Thank you Andrea & Josh, we absolutely loved your incredible wedding day, and feel so lucky to now know two incredibly wonderful people!

Winter Wentworth Inn Wedding: Jillian & Nick

By Anne | May 13, 2016

We’re taking this next week to catch up on some of our winter weddings on our blog, and today we are so excited to highlight Nick & Jillian’s beautiful wedding at The Wentworth Inn, in Jackson, NH.  Usually, we have snow up here in the winter, right?  However, on Nick and Jillian’s wedding day not only was their no snow, but it was almost 50 degrees!  In all honesty it was a blessing as it allowed us to do so many beautiful portraits outside, and not a single person froze their tail feathers off!  So as you will see, there are so many stunning portraits outside, and you will also see a lot of “Coppola” wine labels used throughout the day.  This is because Nick’s last name is Coppola, and it was such a fun, personal and elegant detail to add to their wedding day (Jillian did all of that herself!)!  In addition we were swooning over the bridesmaids lush red high neck bow dresses, Jillians stunning low back wedding dress, and the seasonably perfect bouquets created by our local favorite, Dutch Bloemen Winkel.  Oh, and lets not forget the dreamy red rose petals walkway to the Jackson Community Church and the plaid table runners on their dinner tables accented with some simple evergreen on each napkin.  It was really such a beautiful day with such a lovely couple!  Thank you Nick and Jillian, we absolutely LOVED capturing your beautiful wedding day!  Take a peek, you will see!

Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding: Nick & Abby

By Anne | April 30, 2016

It was such a spectacular fall day for Nick and Abby’s wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine.  The colors were just starting to turn, the temperatures were perfect, and “SMAC” was looking mighty fine in the sun with beautiful blue skies.  Jackie Gardner from Moonset Farm Floral was working her magic with decorating the antique chandelier, hanging sweet florals from the beams and the most big and lush bouquet that we could not stop looking at.  In addition, the Stone Mountain Arts is just bursting with cuteness, character, and the most classic post and beam structures around.  Nick and Abby truly picked a special place for their wedding day.  These two got engaged while snowshoeing on Mount Washington, and have a keen fondness for the White Mountain Region.  They had all their dearest friends and family gather at The Stone Mountain Arts Center to Celebrate their love!  Their ceremony was held in the big barn, while the cocktail hour was in the smaller Quisisana Barn and during the cocktail hour the large barn is transformed to where they have dinner, and then dancing into the night is back in the small Quisisana Barn.  It’s so fun, you just hop back and forth from barn to barn!  Their ceremony was so lovely, wonderful toasts were given, we went all around the dirt roads of Maine for their portraits, snuck out for sunset photos and they even had a sparkler sendoff!  Oh, and this crew danced and their uncle was in their band that kept everyone moving.  Thank  you Nick & Abby, we had so much fun documenting your fabulous day!

Whitney’s Inn Fall Wedding: Nick & Allie

By Anne | March 15, 2016

If you love beautiful fall weddings with impeccable color, this wedding is for you!  Allie and Nick wed this past October at the Whitney’s Inn, in Jakson, New Hampshire.  The Whitney’s Inn is one of our favorite places to shoot, as it is surrounded by the White Mountains and has one of the most stunning barns.  All the tree colors were exploding and the sun warmed their October day perfectly!  To top it off, we were also lucky enough to have the talented Dominic Casserly from Little Outdoor Giants second shooting with us on this fine fall day.  Allie and Nick got ready separately and had their sweet first look moment in front of the old Shovel Handle Ski Lift Shack.  Allie looked stunning in her flow lace gown with her sweet gold leaf headpiece while Nick was looking sharp in his dark brown suit with orange accents.  We wandered all over Jackson to make sure we captured the essence of their fall mountain wedding day.  And did we find color, it was bursting everywhere!  We met their bridal party at the Jackson Covered Bridge for a few photos as well, and then it was time for this couple to officially get married.  Their wedding ceremony was held on the grounds next to the Whitney’s Inn, and after their “I Do’s” their cocktail hour was hosted on the lawn right in front of the inn.  It truly was the perfect October day!  The rest of the evening was hosted inside the quintessential barn and was filled with toasts, special dances, laughter, and great music by DJ Jeff Erwin of ReThink The DJ.  And we even snuck for a few stunning sunset portraits too!  What a day!  Thank you Nick & Allie, it was such an incredibly beautiful day, and an honor to capture it.

As soon as the first email correspondence began with Becc and Chris, I immediately became extremely excited about photographing their wedding.  I just had a really good feeling about these two!  They described that their wedding would be held at the North Star House in Claremont, New Hampshire.  Becc explained that the beautiful farmhouse is a private vacation rental on the Connecticut River and they were planning an outdoor tented reception with most of the wedding details being DIY.  What more do you need?  It’s perfect!  The energy from these two, as I first met them in person on their wedding day, was infectious.  Chris was so inviting as he continued to set up the last minute touches in the tent as Becc began to get ready in the North Star House.  After photographing the tented details, I made my way up to Becc and the girls inside the house upstairs while Brian photographed Chris and the guys downstairs.  Chris waited for Becc on the front porch of the house for their first look.  We had plenty of time for portraits all over the North Star House property and reunited with the bridal party after some time.  We drove to one of the historic covered bridges down the road to capture some more portraits before the ceremony was due to start at the Trinity Chapel.  Chris’s friend, Mike, officiated the ceremony, just as Chris did for Mike’s wedding just weeks prior.  Off to the tented reception we all went for a delicious feast by the Lazy Farmer food truck and fun toasts and laughter.  So many guests mingled all over the property and really spent some quality time with one another.  Brian and I had so much fun photographing everyone’s unique spirit and it was a blast for me to put this wedding story together for you two.  Enjoy!

Stone Mountain Arts Center Wedding: Caitlin and Ryan

By Jordan Luciano | November 23, 2015

Caitlin and Ryan were married on, yet again, another beautiful fall day this past September at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine.  This venue continues to be one of my favorite venues to photograph.  Guests absolutely love the barns and being free to walk the grounds.  The drive up to SMAC is quite beautiful as well, overlooking the rolling fields of Brownfield towards the White Mountains of Maine and New Hampshire.  After finishing her hair and make-up at Debony Salon in Jackson, I met Caitlin and the girls at The Snowvillage Inn in Eaton, New Hampshire. They all enjoyed some girl time as Caitlin got ready. It was so nice to capture Caitlin in her gown before we drove over to SMAC to meet Ryan for the first look. What a stunning bride!  Ryan waiting in front of the white porch for Caitlin to arrive.  This is one of my favorite parts of the day (and I think theirs too!).  We took portraits all over the SMAC property and the long dirt road abutting.  We were able to utilize the beautiful Blake Farm down the road for portraits with the bridal party. Guests started to arrive at the ceremony site back at SMAC.  To share the ceremony stage with so many talented artists at SMAC has to be one of the most special parts of getting married there.  So many defining moments happen on that stage.  It’s very powerful.  Cocktail hour was followed by dinner and we stepped outside to take some portraits with the last bit of remaining daylight.  The moon was full and dancing sure took off in full swing with the bridal party kicking it off.  This wedding was full of immaculate taste and decor.  From the beautiful flowers designed by Jackie from Moonset Farms to Ryan’s fine wool suit to Caitlin’s stunning dress, I enjoyed photographing everything!  Thank you two for being so fun to photograph!  Enjoy 🙂

Christmas Farm Inn Wedding: Elissa & Ben

By Anne | November 19, 2015

This is a love story of two wonderful people. Elissa is little, Ben is tall, and their love is HUGE! First, we met in Boston, a city they love, for their engagement session about a year prior. However, they are both from the neighboring state of Maine and have a connection to the outdoors, and wanted to wed in the Mountains of New Hampshire. Thus, they chose the quaint and charming Christmas Farm Inn for their special day. It was a perfect blue bird fall day for these two, with 70 of their nearest and dearest with them. As you will soon see Elissa is absolutely stunning with a glowing smile and Ben is fun and handsome guy with the kindest eyes and smile. They both got ready at the Christmas Farm Inn with their bridal parties and chose not to see each other prior to the ceremony. Their friend Eric led a beautiful ceremony and close friends gave lovely speeches. Their was laughter, sweet tears of joy, and a passionate kiss at the end! After the ceremony it was time for portraits with these two! We bopped all around Jackson, New Hampshire. Including the classic Jackson covered bridge, the Jackson Falls, and then we also found some cows. Yes, cows! Actually, it was Elissa’s idea! We drove next to them and she said “can we get some photos with the cows?!” And it was music to my ears! And the last spot was a beautiful field where the newlyweds took a stroll together. We returned back to the reception where family and friends were having a grand time. Dancing, toasts, donuts, cake, and lots of energetic kids dancing on the dance floor filled the night! Thank you Elissa & Ben! What an absolutely amazing day, and it was an honor to capture it!
