Here's a sneak peek at Aleks + Mike's wedding Thomspon Island. They really had an island for the day! Next week I will have lots to share from this фантастический* day.
*fantastic in Russian
The golden light at the end shoot wasn't even the best part. Maybe it was hearing about Krystal and Henry's FOOD TRUCK coming to their wedding (that gets 25 thumbs up from me), hearing how these two met each other (totally awesome) or the fact that they have a dog named Pippa! With their Vermont wedding quickly approaching, I'm excited to see these two again and document their love and laughter. Krystal and Henry- I can't wait for the big day!
The place where their relationship started seemed like a very good place to begin their engagement shoot: Emmets, Back Bay with a Guinness and a vodka soda. From there we meandered down to Post Office Square and ended up at Christopher Columbus Park. The best part about Delaney and Bobby besides being all around cool people? They totally make each other crack up. One of the most important hallmarks of a relationship, if you ask me!. Thanks to you two for an awesome evening!
The state slogan of Maine is “The Way Life Should Be” but it could easily be the tagline for Ashley + Tyler’s wedding. As I pulled into downtown Kennebunkport, past the cute stores and ice cream shops, I had a feeling it was going to be a great day. And even though there were a few sprinkles, it made the view of the ocean from The Nonantum Resort even more stunning. The diffused light making the colors more intense. The boats like little jewels bopping in the harbor.
I started my day with Ashley in the bridal suite capturing the small, fleeting moments-- Ashley's bridesmaids chatting with her mom, Tyler’s groomsmen adjusting his collar, the best friend huddle before walking down the aisle. Then, it was onto the big events-- the ceremony at the South Congregational church and reception at the Nonantum. At one point during the dinner, I noticed that just about all of Ashley and Tyler’s friends and family were laughing. That sense of fun continued onto the dance floor for the rest of the evening. A wheelbarrow ride (family tradition), the limbo and lots of dancing capped off the night. Ashley and Tyler, huge congratulations! I can’t wait to see you in Stowe where the rosé will be on me!
Sometimes I'll watch videos of baby elephants to lift my spirits. Now added to my mood booster list is looking at Winston Flowers.
With Tinkerbell leading the way, Haya, Louis and I explored the streets of Beacon Hill. We had stories that began in front of the flower shop and continued onto Charles Street, balanced feet on Acorn Street and practiced spins on the Boston Garden. Before I could take one more shutter click on the Esplande dock, the sun dipped behind the city and the twinkly lights were out. To say I had fun: total understatement. These two, they've got chemistry. Can't you feel it?
