More cozy, late-fall weddings at adorable, historic inns please!Read More
Wow, well the only thing I’ve been good at here lately is being incredibly delinquent at posting! No better way to get back into things than sharing Sarah and Travis’s wedding day from earlier this year in Cape Elizabeth.Read More
It seems a little crazy to say that I'd never been to New Jersey, but the trip for Tyler and Al's wedding had great people and delicious strip mall bagels for cheap so I don't see what's not to love! :) I may be partly joking about the bagels (but not really) but I'm definitely not joking about Tyler and Al and their friends and family making this a fantastic wedding. Between the church cat (John, naturally), misty rain, and two people filled with love and joy, you can't go wrong.Read More
After every wedding I get to be a part of, I am struck by how amazing it is that I have been let in to such an intimate and special day in peoples' lives. It's a level of giddyness I'll never get over and gratitude that, despite my best efforts, I never feel that I've properly conveyed to the people who invited me to be there.
These feelings get magnified times a million when your friends let you be the only person to witness their elopement. Then times a bajillion that they chose San Francisco and Yosemite as the backdrop. And they let you make stops for hotdogs and keychains at the national park gift shop? Pretty unparalleled coolness.
After their ceremony at city hall, we explored the sutro baths before road tripping out to Far Meadow. In an epically twisty and barf-inducing (but totally worth it) drive, you are rewarded with a cabin and two a-frames set on a mountain meadow. Getting ready for the wedding consisted of a quick round of Boggle, a complete breakfast, and heading to the car for the drive to Yosemite. We came across a secluded part of the Merced river, perfect for a private exchange of vows, and then wound our way up to Glacier Point for a hike for views out over the whole valley. A perfect, whistle-stop NorCal tour.Read More
Sugarloaf on labor day meant fields of golden rod, some rogue maples turning red, the last remnants of hurricane harvey. A surprisingly beautiful combination and an unsurprisingly amazing wedding day for Jen and Dan. I mean, there were four dogs there, so it was bound to be a good one!Read More
My job never really feels like a job, but then there are days when I meet the happiest, most at ease people, and I can't believe I get to hang out with them for the whole day, let alone have it be "work". I knew these fellow Colby alums were going to be cool, and combined with awesome friendors Meghan (B Merry) and Emily (Emily Carter Floral Designs) I knew it was going to look beautiful and be smooth sailing.Read More
Anyone planning a destination wedding? Can I invite myself? Bree and Peter and their friends and family met up at the El Dorado Royale for a long weekend of Mexican sun, sea and drinks served in hollowed out pineapples (!!!). Even if pineapple drinks aren't on the table, this is probably the way to do it. Everyone has already had a bit of vacation and a few drinks/swims by the time the wedding comes around so there are very few nerves or possible frustrations. The result? You get a laid-back, tropical, pool-jumping party.Read More
While the upper Northeast was still dragging itself out of winter, Connecticut was a virtual rainforest of lush greenery, even early in May.Read More
Everything about this day, these people, this venue, makes my heart absolutely swell. There was blazing foliage, a white boxer-of-honor, golden light and tons of love - more than I could ever hope for at a wedding.Read More
Remember the sleepover game where one person started laughed and it contagiously made everyone crack? Whitney and Scott's wedding was full of that same tummy tickling joy and anticipation.Read More
Someone who can combine garden roses, succulents, driftwood and custom Lego people is someone I need in my life. They may be someone I have begged to let me join their family (and chances are that person is nice enough to say "OK!" and not roll their eyes at me). Elina and Dan invited their friends and family down to Nashville for their wedding weekend and I was so grateful to be on hand to document their day and to have a chance to see a little bit of the city (translation - the inside of the hot chicken place).Read More
Where to even begin with Matt and Clare's wedding. The midwest has charmed me again! On the way over in the morning, I pulled the car over countless times to observe/photograph/pick wildflowers and shake my head at how beautiful Michigan is. Combine that with the most welcoming and laid back wedding party, friends and family, unfettered use of the golf carts (!!!), people willing to bring me lunch, feed me buttered rolls and palm me tiny bottles of wine (you guys know who you are - love you) and you get some of the fantastic experience.Read More
Todd and Emily got married at Sutliff Cider in Iowa - a state where I frankly did not know what to expect, having only experienced a drive by of the quad cities a decade ago. It turns out that Iowa City is a beautiful, shockingly friendly haven of ultra-cool. There were cornfields on the way in, sure, but I don't think that's what I'll be remembering.Read More
