As Seen On Rustic Wedding ChicKate and Mike (two of possibly the nicest, most welcoming clients I have ever had) were married at her childhood home in Henniker, NH……. it was such a special, meaningful place to have their wedding, and it showed in every detail they incorporated. Built by her grandfather, the house and property have 3 barns scattered around, and her grandmother lives just down the hill. Her parents’ house on the hilltop was a scene filled with nostalgia and sentimentality, recollecting all the trees that were cut down or planted over the decades to make the property what it is today. Over 100 guests filled the front lawn of the home for the ceremony, just outside the front door where she grew up.  It was a day filled with infusing old memories with happy new ones, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  Mike himself made this incredible arbor for their wedding ceremony…. how romantic is that? And wait until you see the bar he made for the reception.

Down the sloped driveway, a huge sailcloth tent glowed in the evening as their friends and family celebrated their new marriage and danced the night away. I loved the gigantic chalkboards, wildflower bouquets, and the gorgeous handmade bar that Mike made. He definitely has a talent for woodworking!

Wedding albums are here! I’ve had these gorgeous sample albums for a while now, and finally got the time to photograph them. They’re too beautiful to keep under wraps!  The flushmount albums are available in 12×12, 10×10, 12×8, 8×10, and 8×8 and come in a wide variety of colors & materials including linens, full grain Italian leathers, and hand woven silks. My design style is clean and modern, which I believe looks timeless and classy. With such clean lines your album will never look dated.

Sarah and Ryan chose the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, NH as the setting for their very intimate wedding ceremony which included only their parents and her brother.  On a beautiful spring evening, the small group gathered  on the lawn while their pastor delivered a lovely ceremony. The tender spring leaves surrounding the farm was a perfect nod to the new budding marriage. I was there to capture relaxed portraits to commemorate the day, and preserve memories of this quiet and meaningful evening.

I’m looking forward to continuing the celebration in October with another ceremony and reception for all their family and friends!

Sarah’s beautiful bouquet was designed by Debra Sleeper of Outdoor Pride of Rye.
Her hair was done by Alyssa Peterson of Artistic Creations of Windham, NH.
