Danae grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee, so although she and Jason now call NYC home, New Hampshire was still the perfect backdrop for their wedding last month. And no lakeside extravaganza would be complete without a grand water entrance. This time provided by the New Hampshire Boat Museum.
From meeting at a Phish concert out of state, to a decked out event at Wequassett Resort, two fabulously fun people came together for a wedding on Cape Cod last month. Kristen also wins for my favorite dress of the season. A simple art deco pattern, in the right fit and fabric, killed it!

I’ve been to my fair share of music venues, but this was my first for a wedding! Hannah and Steve are one of the first couples to host their reception at The Sinclair, and to my knowledge, the first in the music hall itself. As with anything, to be the first doesn’t come without it’s challenges, but in the end, the space was polished up for a wedding, yet maintained it’s edge, the reason Hannah and Steve chose The Sinclair to begin with.

Jonathan Edwards Winery is another favorite of mine, but this was my first visit during the summer months. August 8th was perfection. Green as far as the eye could see, lush vines, beautiful light, and a great group of people. The attire for the day was on point as well. Taylor’s BHLDN dress had a hint of blush, a perfect compliment to the winery, and the groomsmen jackets had a little flavor (on the interior) as well.
You may remember Katie and Julian from their killer engagement session this spring in California. If not, definitely check it out HERE!
Fast forward to August, when I joined them at one my favorite venues in New England, the Boston Public Library, for their wedding extravaganza. Personal details like the floral embroidery from the wedding dress of Katie’s mom was added to hers, the notebook wedding favors, and the very reason they hosted their event in a library (a fitting choice for two writers) all made for a meaningful celebration. Not to mention their fantastic families and friends, who gave some of the most hilarious and creative toasts.
Thanks for welcoming me to your home in California, and for including me in your wedding here in Boston! Whaddaya say, this time next year again?
