Beach wedding

Autumn & Janet :: Beach Wedding in Rye, New Hampshire

Autumn and Janet were married in an intimate, beachside wedding on the beautiful coast of Rye, New Hampshire. They got ready to walk down the aisle at the gorgeous Hilton Garden Inn in Portsmouth, New Hampshire just doors aways from each other. It was hard to tell who was more excited: Janet for her tux and boots or Autumn for her stunning dress. Not to mention the shared excitement of everyone just thrilled to see them getting married!

The sunset ceremony was absolutely perfect. The moon rising over the horizon behind them while the sun set in front of them. The light was gorgeous! The ceremony was very personal for Autumn and Janet. My favorite piece was that they had all of their guests chose a small rock from the beach prior to Autumn walking down the aisle. During the ceremony, they gathered all of the rocks in a basket to signify their loving and supportive friends and family that were surrounding them on their special day. Such a great idea!

Autumn and Janet, thank you for letting me play a roll on your day. I hope that you are basking in the glow of newlywed-ness! Congratulations!

Lauren & Patrick :: Wedding on the Maine Coast at The Harpswell Inn

Lauren and Patrick. And Eloise. Love, love, love these three incredible people! Two doctors and their gorgeous, adorable baby girl. Tying the knot at The Harpswell Inn on the coast on Maine on a rainy June 11, 2011. Rain might spell trouble to most couples, but Lauren and Patrick took it in stride and the day was absolutely glorious and perfect. From the starfish escort cards to Lauren's incredible Jim Hjelm dress to the picture perfect coast line to the rocking party with music from Jones'n. It was an amazing day and certainly one that I wish we could relive over and over again.

Brittany & Dan :: Wedding at Great Island Common in New Castle, New Hampshire

Ahhh... Brittany and Dan. Where can you start with two people as absolutely adorable as them? Brittany: The next Martha Stewart. Seriously. The details of their day that she spent the past two years working on were nothing short of amazing. From the ornately folded paper boutonnieres to the fast spinning pinwheels carried by her bridesmaids to the absolutely lovely beachy centerpieces.... it was just incredible. Dan: He is the perfect balance to Brittany. He's a geeky guy (like me) and can bring serenity to the chaos that crafty minds typically have. His love for Brittany is so deep. While standing in front of him while waiting for his bride to get to him during their first look, he just kept saying how badly he wanted to turn around and see her. I practically cried just then!

And thus was how the day went. It was perfect. It was emotional. It was filled with loved.

Brittany and Dan tied the knot on the beach at Great Island Common in New Castle, New Hampshire followed by a tented reception on the lawn under a gorgeous tent. The party kept on going all that way until sunset thanks to an awesome ice cream cart, delicious barbeque food, and even a mean game of limbo. I dare say that all of the guests just didn't want to ever leave! I know that I certainly didn't!

Congratulations to Brittany and Dan! Thank you so much for letting me capture your day. I cannot wait until we get together again!
