Emma + Luke: The Wedding

I first met Emma and Luke at their engagement session last August at the stunning Granite Ridge Estate and Barn in Norway, Maine. It was my first time seeing the venue where their wedding would take place almost exactly one year later, and as we toured around for their pictures, Emma told me she wanted a fairytale feel to her wedding. And that is exactly what she got: a fairytale wedding to a groom who could not take his eyes off her from First Look on. Beyond the beauty of every detail of the day, it was wonderful to see the two families coming together so happily. Emma and Luke are high school sweethearts who have dated for years, so they’ve virtually grown up in each other’s homes, and the affection each set of parents had for their soon-to-be child-in-law was beautiful to see. Jess and I had a blast with Emma and Luke, their families, and their hilarious bridal party peeps, and I can’t wait to share their day now with you!
