leah + mack | surprise sunset wedding

This wedding was not only epic in its nature, but one of the sweetest unions I have ever witnessed. Leah is one of those old souls you feel like you’ve known forever even though you met her just twenty minutes ago. She wandered the property picking out a few daisies to make her own flower crown — just priceless. Mack has a kind hearted, laid back aura about him so these two together, you can just feel the love a mile away.

Let me tell you about this wedding — it was a SURPRISE! At the end of Leah’s grandparents 50th Anniversary party at the King’s Hill Inn & Barn, Leah and Mack announced that they were going to honor her grandparent’s lasting and beautiful marriage by making their anniversary date theirs as well! You’ll see her grandparent’s shocked and immediately thrilled reactions! It gives me goosebumps just remembering that moment. Leah and Mack went off in other directions and spent an hour getting ready, all while Mack’s family began to arrive and friends and family gathered for their ceremony for an intimate ceremony at sunset. It was incredible and I’m blessed to have been a part of it. I hope their love story and these images reflect how love really is the best thing.

They held a casual reception later in the year as well at the King’s Hill Inn & Barn for all of their friends and family.

Venue: King’s Hill Inn & Barn

jason + rebecca | spring barn wedding

Now that our wedding season is slowing down, it’s time to reflect back on the 2017 wedding season and appreciate all of the incredible couples, families and friends we’ve photographed throughout the year!

I’m excited to share images of Jason + Rebecca’s spring wedding at Laudholm Farms. Jason actually works at Laudholm Farms so picking it as a venue was sentimental as well as a gorgeous location to celebrate at! We loved being part of this day with lilacs in full bloom, the fields filled with yard games, a touching ceremony all followed by pizza, dancing and a whole lot of laughter! I’m wishing these two the best of luck in their marriage!!

nanette + stephen | magical winter wedding

Nanette + Stephen planned their wedding in under a month and it was one of the most magical and beautiful weddings I have ever been a part of. They have been together for over 17 years and decided that with all of the things life can throw at you, it was time they tied the knot! The lit up the barn at King’s Hill Inn & Barn and had the time of their lives. So blessed to have been part of this celebration.

Kenneth + Loren | Stunning Rainy Fall Wedding

Kenny + Loren were a dream. It poured on their wedding day, literally down poured — but that didn’t dampen the mood whatsoever! They had a romantic first look in a wooden pathway at the inn, with umbrellas in hand. They moved their ceremony into the 117 year old barn due to the rain and as soon as they said “I Do”, the party commenced! Their hilarious wedding party made the formals a literal blast in the fields (I bet you giggled when you saw their wedding party photos!) and headed out of the rain to share their first dance as husband and wife. After a delicious meal and some dancing, my photo team and I stole them from the dance floor for some night photos, which ended up being some of my favorite images of the day. We are so lucky to work with incredible couples like Kenny + Loren! Wishing them all the love and best wishes the world can give them.

aaron + kristi | colorful fall maine wedding

 

Aaron + Kristi certainly had their #KandAMaineEvent because it was full of Maine and their love! Their day started with breakfast from the King’s Hill Inn & Barn staff followed by wedding preparations. Their bold purple and teal colors were gorgeous against the yellows and oranges of a New England fall. As they got ready, Kristi and Aaron sent over sweet (& hilarious) gifts to each other.

They decided to share a first look before their ceremony and it was breathtaking. Out by the gardens of the inn, the two of them got a half hour to themselves and for photos. It’s pretty clear how wonderful of a match these two are together. Their two pups, Stanley + Hope,  joined them soon into their first look whom were their flower girl and ring bearer. Even though Hope wasn’t convinced she wanted all of the attention of walking down the aisle, I’m still 100% sold that dogs should be at all weddings. So much cuteness!

They shared a intimate and loving ceremony with their friends and family and immediately after, the party began! The rest of their evening was a whirlwind of laughter, good food, love and dancing! So blessed to be part of their day and can’t wait to see all their life together brings them!
