I’m thrilled to finally be able to share images from this wedding, published today on! Lindsay & Chris’s gorgeous seaside event in Rye, NH was deeply rooted in family history (check out those stunning formal gardens)! Lindsay drew her planning inspiration from the refined simplicity of weddings from the 40’s and 50’s.

Check out the feature and slideshow at, and stay tuned for more images from Lindsay & Chris’s wedding, coming soon!

Joanna & Bryan’s wedding at a private estate in the Boston area was seriously enchanting: a jaw-dropping setting, lush details, gorgeous guests, tearful toasts, a packed dance floor, and a beautiful (and head-over-heels-in-love) bride & groom at the center of it all.

Coordinated by the amazing planners at AE Events and featuring a dream team of vendors, the wedding celebration was a joy to behold, and to document. Below, a few of my favorite images from the night…

Dara & Eric’s wedding at the Seaport Hotel in May was lovely, laid-back, and fun-filled — Dara and Eric have a knack for surrounding themselves with similarly joyful and fun people. I especially loved Dara’s distinctive ruffled bouquet, crafted by Winston Flowers — it was a copy of the one carried by her mom on her wedding day years ago. The details and decor featured lovely champagne, cream and gold accents, giving the beautiful Lighthouse ballroom an airy, elegant feel.

Special thanks to Alanah and the other talented coordinators at The Seaport, who keep everything running like clockwork, while making it all seem effortless!
