erin & mike
Erin and Mike had an absolutely gorgeous spring day for their wedding at the Susan McLane Audubon Center in Concord, NH. The weather was beautiful for their 12:30 ceremony in the courtyard, the flowers were in bloom, and their carefully chosen personal touches created an event enjoyed by all their friends and family.
Riding up the elevator to the 3rd floor, I met the mother of the bride in the elevator, and I mentioned that I couldn’t wait to see the dress she had made for Erin. Erin’s mother Lori handmade her dress, just as she had for her sister’s wedding. As an extra special touch, she even sewed a patch for Erin and Mike from her own original wedding dress into the hem of Erin’s dress for good luck.
With the Audubon Center being a conservation organization, it was fitting that nature inspired the decorations. Dark pink peonies in the bouquets were mirrored with single peonies in little apothecary bottles on the tables, next to muted gold planters potted with dark green foliage. I loved that the centerpieces were actually potted rather than placed in water–perfect for an environmentally conscious setting.
Queen City Cupcakes provided the amazing cupcake display for dessert, including a giant coconut cutting cupcake! Three different flavor choices provided a selection paralysis, I’m sure!
Thank you to Erin and Mike for choosing me to document their big day! Laid-back couples with great taste who host their weddings at unique local venues are always such a pleasure to work with. I was thrilled to start out my 2016 wedding season with such an enjoyable event.
