Jenny + Ian at Linden Place

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.

Featured on Elle Decor

This week I had two photos featured on Elle Decor’s “8 Wedding Ideas to Steal for Everyday Entertaining.” Check out the full article here.

I’m partial to number 01 (a pink sequined sweetheart table from this wedding at Sharksmouth Estate, a favorite venue of mine.) And number 06 (a signature cocktail from an editorial I photographed for Bliss Celebrations, more from that shoot can be seen here.)

Evelyn + John’s Backyard Wedding

I was honored to be included in Evelyn and John’s backyard shindig at the end of May. They have been together for 15 years, and engaged for 8, so this spring they wanted to make it official. Along with a small group of their family and friends, and some Chinese takeout in the yard, they did just that.

This was a true DIY affair. Evelyn thrifted all of the table decor and decorations, and set up that morning with her family. No small feat, even when you’re trying to keep a celebration casual. And in true Chinese takeout fashion, they invited their guests to crack open a fortune cookie to end the meal.

Michelle + Steve at Belle Mer

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!

Katie + Julian Engaged

Sheep, horses and cows, oh my! Julian’s family have been California ranchers for generations, so what better place to photograph their engagement session, than where Julian grew up. Not to mention it’s some of the most beautiful land I’ve seen.

A one week old lamb made an appearance as well ( just in time for Easter) and couldn’t have been a better animal model. Such a content little newborn.
