Laura & Mike
Laura and Mike knew they wanted to hold their wedding in the Sunapee region of New Hampshire, the place they love and where they have made their home. Dexter’s Inn on October 18th was the perfect backdrop, with its stunning views overlooking the mountains, gorgeous fall foliage, and minutes from scenic Sunapee with its boats and bridges. They wanted a natural theme to their wedding with a distinct New Hampshire vibe, celebrating all that they love about their life together and the place they were meant to be. From a folksy rock band setting the pace of the night to an array of delicious comfort foods for dinner and desserts, this was one beautiful, freezing cold wedding day that everyone will remember for a long time.

Laura’s dad brought an amazing photo prop along–his 1957 Chevy!
The ceremony site at Dexter’s Inn is truly one of the most scenic I have seen, and combined with the brilliant colors of peak foliage, it was absolutely magnificent. Pumpkins filled with flowers lined the aisle, and the vibrant flower colors popped against the white chairs and white arbor, with a backdrop of miles of sky and mountains in the distance.
Was it cold? You bet it was! These ladies were incredibly determined to stick it out in the 34 degree weather, just long enough for the portraits. They looked gorgeous, and their vibrant colors coordinated beautifully with the scenery around them. Beautiful bouquets by Paisley Floral Design Studio pulled it all together.
Back inside the tent, guests enjoyed toasts and speeches, first dances, a delicious dinner buffet by Bubba’s Bar & Grille, and a fun dessert buffet. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Laura and Mike decided to keep it comfy and casual with cheesecakes and cider donuts.

Caitlin and Issac celebrated their lovely October 9th wedding at the Publick House Historic Inn in Sturbridge MA. The fall colors were really starting up, and the Inn was beautifully decorated with pumpkins and corn stalks everywhere you looked.
Caitlin and the girls were absolutely gorgeous, even in the drizzling rain. Their flowers by Michele Bernard were so vibrant with amazing sunflowers and zinnias that popped against the girls’ hunter green dresses.
The beautiful reception in the garden tent was decorated with bright sunflowers, with lots of hunter green and orange accents, echoing the amazing fall colors all around.
Cocktail hour featured this amazing bacon bar where guests could sample from three different varieties of bacon: jalapeno, pecan smoked, and maple. Fabulous idea!
After an evening of dancing, even more food came out! There was a late night waffle bar, with all the custom fixings, as well as a beautiful dessert buffet with pies, cakes and eclairs.

I am completely smitten with Jessica and Zach’s November engagement photos at Hamilton House in South Berwick, Maine. November is one of my favorite months for weddings and photos, believe it or not. Of course everyone loves October with its showoff colors and majestic scenery. But I find a quiet, somber beauty in November, when most of the trees are bare, all the leaves have been cleaned up, the sunlight is significantly weaker and allows for a quiet exploration of textures, colors, and soft light. Jess and Zach were amazing to work with, and it was great to be able to get some fall photos for them before their summer wedding next year.
