“With A Little Help From My Friends” went a long way at Claire and Mark’s summer shindig a few weeks ago. Claire’s mom made her dress (and it should be noted, she is not a seamstress.) The signature cocktails were crafted from hand collected rose petals. The band, the florist, and the desserts (my favorite macarons in the city) were all provided by friends of the couple. And then Tracy of Tangorra Wedding Planning, Erica of Russell Morin Catering, and I rounded out the team (and I like to think we’re all friends now too.) Cheers!
I love photographing weddings in Bristol Rhode Island. There’s an elegance to the area, but it still has quaint New England charm. So lucky for me, I spent back to back weekends there at two of my favorite venues. First up, Linden Place.
Jenny is the youngest of four sisters to get married, so she has been thinking about this day for a long time. Usually those dreams don’t include rain however, so when the forecast was predicting showers, it can put a damper on anyone’s outdoor wedding parade. Thankfully though, the rain held off until later that evening, and they were able to hold their ceremony outside in the gardens, and we got to take advantage of exterior for portraits as well.
At every wedding a unique element stands out to me, and in the case of Michelle and Steve’s wedding, they brought the dance party. A floor littered with dollar bills is usually an indicator of a good night, and this was no exception to the rule. Thanks for a fabulous season opener guys, let the games begin!
It has been one heck of a year! 17,587 images have been delivered to wedding clients alone, shot all across New England, in an array of locations. I’ve photographed couples on boats, in cities, and on beaches, vineyards and farms, so it’s hard to sum up everything I’ve seen in a year (missing still are the editorials and fashion I worked on, portraits and engagement sessions, and the personal adventures I’ve taken.) But nevertheless, here is a small sampling of what my eyeballs saw in 2014.
