Karen + Alan: The Engagement Sneak Peek

I felt like I bonded with Karen and Alan by the end of our booking call. They both just seemed so genuine and sweet, and Alan spoke about their wedding day with so much kid-like excitement. Spending a couple of hours with them last night, all of that came through just like it had on our phone call. The initial nerves of having a camera following them fell away pretty quickly, and then they both just relaxed and had fun—so much fun! You’ll see all of that in the full length blog later, but for now enjoy this sneak peek of their evening!

Jazmine + Herman: The Sneak Peek

Jazmine and I bonded from the first client call. I felt like I had just met my new best friend, and that feeling was only reinforced as I’ve gotten to know her over the last year. Jazmine and Herman check all the boxes—they’ve been together for nearly a decade, but the heat between them feels like they met yesterday; they’re gorgeous people inside and out, and seriously two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Jess and I went home raving about what an incredible day we had with them—bridesmaids frolicking! dance floor heat! smoldering groomsmen! Enjoy this Sneak Peek from their day!

The Details:

  • The Venue: Beech Hill Barn in Pittston, Maine (a FABULOUS venue with view of Camden Hills!)

  • The Planner: Julie Riley (and I have to say, Julie is AMAZING—super organized, on task, but so nice you’ll never realize she’s getting you where you need to be when you need to be there. Jazmine and Herman’s day went off without a hitch under her care!)

  • The Donuts: The famous Eighty 8 Donut Truck (formerly Urban Sugar—same owner, different name)—everyone should have gourmet donuts made to order at their wedding!

  • The DJ: Sean Rossetti, Double Platinum Celebrations (Sean kept everyone on the dance floor!)

  • The Hair and Bride’s Makeup: Kong, Hair Etc. in Portland, Maine

  • The Dress: Maggie Sottero from Alexandra’s Bridal

  • Second Shooter Extraordinaire: Jessica Mawhinney

Christine + Mike: The Sneak Peek

Everything about Christine and Mike’s day just checked all the boxes: they married at one of my favorite venues, Granite Ridge Estate, overlooking the White Mountains of New Hampshire, they both had amazingly fun bridal parties, and they were both super-emotional in the best way about the day. It was a joy to spend the day with them and to be a part of this chapter of their love story. (Also, if you’re wondering, it’s a reference to Mike’s badge number on her garter—a really cool touch!) Enjoy this sneak peek of their day!
