After several cloudy weddings I was in need of some sunshine and Chessie & Scott gave me just that. Beyond Chessie’s bright and shining personality (I believe the best man described her as “arguable the most social person ever”) we also got the most perfectly sunny and beautiful fall day. The leaves were changing colors but the sunshine was crisp and the grass was bright green and overall the day was just perfect for photographing…oh…and for getting married. :) Chessie and Scott celebrated their reception at the stunning Wentworth By The Sea Hotel in Rye, NH and we had the perfect mix of outdoor photos and a beautiful indoor ballroom. Between Chessie’s gorgeous dress with that stunning illusion neckline, the girls berry-colored dresses, the guys classic black tuxes, and the amazing fall bouquets I couldn’t stop taking photos of this group! I know Chessie is waiting on these so let’s get to the photos!

Favorite Things:

• That illusion neckline, I love a dress with sleeves and this one was gorgeous!
• The light on this day…you all know I’m a sucker for this kind of incredible backlight
• Stella…she was the happiest flower girl ever!

This was an absolutely perfect evening for an engagement shoot. Gabby and Greg originally chose an October date hoping for some fall weather, but as we know this has been the warmest October on record…ever…so I think it was in the high seventies when we had this shoot. I do love the North End and it was a perfect backdrop for these two. We started at Christopher Columbus park and walked through the outskirts of the north end by the water and they could not stop smiling. I think gabby could, possibly, have one of my favorite laughs in the history of laughs. You’ll see what I mean. :) Onto the photos!

Favorite Things:

• Gabby’s cream dress—we all know I love a good fit and flare dress ;)
• The way Greg made Gabby smile, whenever I meet a couple that laughs this much with each other I know I’m going to be one happy photographer
• That light! There is something about the way the light looks at the end of the day in the city. Big love!

I was looking forward to Sofia & Steve’s wedding since I talked with Sofie over a year ago about her very fall-themed farm wedding. Not only was it a wedding taking place at a farm (which we know I love) but there was such a beautiful set of details at the gorgeous Sweetwater Farm and I just couldn’t believe it. Let’s just start with the fact that Sofie grew and dried ALL the flowers you see…seriously…all of them! She hand-dyed coffee filters in multiple colors and created over 400 beautiful poufs that hung above the dance floor. There was a ceremony arbor that Steve built decorated with flowers that Sofie dried, lights hung in the round barn for cocktail hour, shutters adorned with photos of the couple, a pie table, and mismatched dishware for each and every seat collected by the couple—it was all BEYOND beautiful. I really can go on and on but I might as well just get to the photos.

Favorite Things:

• Their dog, Woody, was ring bearer and had to be a part of all the photos…you’ll see him peek in the first look
• They had their guests toss lavender and seeds and dried flowers, which—you guessed it—Sofie grew, dried, and packaged for guests
• Outdoor ceremony, I don’t need to say more
• Pie table…I’m a sucker for a good pie and this table was stunning
• Sofie’s blush BHLDN wedding dress was perfect for her, gorgeous lace and camisole details was just the right amount of understated but sophisticated style
