Sandra + Michael | Engagement Session | Wagon Hill | Durham, NH

 

The answer is yes. Any time a couple asks, " Can we bring our dog?" Yes. Absolutely!

Gatlin is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever come across, totally laid back, zero bark and 100% love!  I also do believe that he was completely up for an engagement session tag along at an amazing open field location of Wagon Hill! Talk about open spaces to run! 

Okay so back to the real reason we were at Wagon Hill, an engagement session for the ever so adorable in love, mom and dad of Gatlin.. I mean Sandra and Michael! It only ten short days I will be documenting these two declare their love to each other at their Flag Hill Winery wedding! Ten Days Y'all! I can not wait, these two are so sweet and so in love!

Beautiful Details | Invitation

 

It is no lie that I absolutely love my details time during the wedding day. I get to sit down and play with your beautiful dress and gorgeous jewelry,  what is not to love?! A key part of bringing your day full circle when it comes to documentation is incorporating your invitation with your details. When you stop and think about it, this is the first thing your guests see, it sets the stage for your day before they even arrive! In the off season I love to check out all the beautiful options that my brides are given while searching for invitations. I came upon Basic Invite and, fell in love with their quality cards, and awesome new designs! Check out below two of my favorites, clean and real wood invites! 

Yes CLEAR and WOOD! How fun right! Also even better, the fact that they are not through the roof in cost! 

 

I love how both the wood grain and clear acrylic can go from rustic to chic simply with how you choose to style the rest of your day. Pair either with a beautiful vineyard wedding or backyard farm gathering, and perfection! 

Check out Basic Invite for more gorgeous invitations, and don't forget to save an clean invitation suite for me on your wedding day! Better yet, mail me one! 

 

Meaghan + Talon | New Hampshire Outdoor Wedding | Flag Hill Distillery + Winery

 

The weather was a perfect 75 degrees, the sun was shining and the vines at Flag Hill Winery + Distillery, Lee, NH were in their full bloom glory, this day was destined to be gorgeous! The bride and all the special women in her family were all preparing while sipping champagne at The Wingate Salon and Spa in Stratham, NH But... before we get to all the beautiful photos and sweet love story can we rewind it back ten days. 

Not even two weeks prior to the wedding day and the bride is in emergency surgery to remove her appendix, then one day before her wedding, just prior to her rehearsal, shes teaching a cycle class! Girl what?! She then continues the wedding day by dancing the night away! 

So really and truly the fact that they met at a gym, and Talon fell in love while being razzed by the ever so sweet bride for not keeping up with her and then that Talon popped the question while the two were on a 6:30 am run while on vacation in St. Croix should come as no surprise because umm beast mode! And yes I said on vacation ... and run .... and 6:30 AM all in one sentence. 

Then after the excitement of the proposal wore down a bit .... they finished their (way to early) run with burpees and squats. hese two get it done! 

Wondering where Talon was keeping the ring... nope not the pocket.... his shoe. Yep that's love, running with a "rock" in your shoe to start and then putting a foot sweat ring on your finger. xoxo

Now for the pretty day!  

Meaghan + Talon thank you so much for the opportunity to document your beautiful day! It was truly a beautiful day full of so much love and fun!

Marissa + Roland | New Hampshire Vineyard Wedding | Flag Hill Distillery + Winery

 

Marissa and Roland are married! The two tied the knot at the ever so beautiful Flag Hill Winery and Distillery in Lee, NH.  Flag Hill is one of my favorite locations to shoot at, not only are the grounds beautiful, being NH's largest vineyard, but the people are some of the best to work with! Christa and Maddie and their entire team are top notch!

The moment I walked into Marissa's bridal suite in Durham, New Hampshire I was welcomed by a cool, calm and collected bride while each of her maids and mama casually lounged, chatting away. From that point on I knew this was going to be a great day! Marissa and Roland have been extremely sweet from the moment that I met them at Flag Hill Winery , and I was elated when they choose me to document their love filled day. 

Bliss Studio from Dover, NH did a stunning job on Marissa's hair and make-up and were so amazing by coming right to the brides side to insure a stress free morning

Make sure to check for the shot of the handwritten letter and beautiful gift that Roland gave his bride the morning of their wedding, earrings that are sure to be treasured for a lifetime.
