I was really excited to photograph Melanie & Derek’s wedding at the Mountain House in Newry. Not only was the location spectacular, but the DIY design elements were amazing as well. Melanie and her mom put a lot of thought and time into the concept and décor. Handmade wooden flower boxes and mini terrariums decorated the tables as centerpieces. Guests found their tables with individual potted succulent plants that they could also take home with them. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect with Sunday River Mountain in the backdrop and a covered bridge down the road. I know that Melanie and Derek had been looking forward to this day for a long time, and it was most definitely worth the wait!
It was a long time coming for Ashley and Brian’s New Hampshire wedding. They met in dance class when they were five and finally tied the knot on the grounds of a beautiful lake house on Winnipesaukee. Due to the weather, as we all know Mother Nature does not always cooperate, they held the ceremony and reception in the beautifully decorated tent. The rain, however, did not dampen this couples’ spirits as they danced the night way with close friends and family.
What a magical day for Kim & Tim’s wedding at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine. The forecast called for showers at the time of the ceremony but Kim & Tim remained hopeful that they would have their ceremony outside. With the power of a couple in love, the skies parted and the sun beamed down for a beautiful ceremony on lawn of the Colony Hotel. Kim & Tim celebrated with their close friends as the rain held off until the end of the night. You can’t get much luckier than that!
There is nothing like a backyard wedding on the coast of Maine! Samantha & Tony were married in Tony’s parents’ backyard which is located in very picturesque Spruce Head. The reception included a traditional lobster bake and not to be missed award winning blueberry pie by Cathy Feener. While enjoying the view, guests played lawn games and enjoyed craft beer out of Tony’s homemade beer bar. Samantha and Tony surely know how to treat their guests to the best of what the State has to offer!
Once a month we get to diverge from the wedding and portrait world to photograph the fabulous Flangan’s Table dinners. These dinners are held at the Barn at Flanagan Farm in Buxton, Maine. Set amongst a rural backdrop in a refined 19thcentury barn, guests come to experience an evening of delicious cuisine prepared by local chefs!
