I love small, intimate weddings, and that’s exactly what Samantha and Michael’s day was about. Sam envisioned a day that was calm, easy, and romantic, and she got exactly what she was looking for. We all huddled together on the patio at Oleana for their ceremony, which was followed by lunch with family and friends on the warm, sunny patio.
You may remember Melanie and Matt from their engagement session in Boston last fall. We met at Drink and then had a blast wandering Fort Point. It’s finally been a year, and I photographed their gorgeous fall wedding in Portsmouth, RI at the Glen Manor House, an elegant mansion with a lush garden setting for their ceremony.
“Welcome to Lauren and Andrew’s Murder-Mystery Wedding”, was how the Best Man started his speech. And it was very appropriate, as a lightening storm hit the estate and the power went out right at the beginning of cocktail hour, and stayed out for the entire evening. Candles were lit, a generator was found, and the rest of the evening took place in the semidarkness of the mansion. Luckily my trusty flashes provided enough light for the photos, and the guests had a blast – it was definitely a wedding that I’ll never forget.
Miriam and Jake had such a thoughtful approach to their wedding. Their wedding day had a low-key vibe at Gore Place, with their ceremony held in a field under an apple tree, and their reception filled with interesting food from food trucks. They also included so many personal touches in their day. Jake is a glass blower and made the glasses that they used in the ceremony, for drinking wine and stomping on the glass. Miriam made their ketuba and Jake built their chuppah. They also arranged all of their flowers and made candy by hand (which I can personally say was delicious).
