Published :: Editorial Shoot for Seacoast Weddings at Rivermill at Dover Landing :: NH Wedding Photographer

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Last August I was invited to take part in my first editorial photoshoot for Seacoast Weddings. The article is entitled "A Celebration of Color" and seven different wedding colors were to be photographed. I was assigned to Team Lilac (or Team Purple as we called ourselves!) and it was delightful to work with new and old wedding vendor friends:

The shoot took place at Rivermill at Dover Landing. Kate Parker worked with Seacoast Weddings (thanks to Crystal for her tireless work scheduling everyone and answering all kinds of logistic questions) to put together the day and Be Our Guest of Boston, MA provided the furniture, china, glassware and linen rentals. Donna Fulcaloro and Danielle Maccini of Pepperberry's Flowers of Byfield, MA came up with the table setting design and the beautiful purple and pink flowers. The wedding stationery was designed and beautifully printed by Albertine Press, Somerville, MA and the cake and wedding cupcakes were lovingly baked by Wild Orchid Baking Company.

I put a shout out on facebook to see if any of my previous brides would like to model for the day and was delighted with Bridget & Katy volunteered to play dress up :) They were beautifully outfitted by Flair Bridesmaid Boutique, Boston, MA (extra thanks to Stacey for driving up on her day off with an amazing selection of purple dresses). They were made even more beautiful with make up by Kathy of Beleza Spa and the ridiculously talented Lena of Hair That Moves came up with the chic updo and...what's the opposite of an updo? A downdo?

Initially the plan was that only five of the seven colors would be selected for the magazine and so the pressure was on. It was lovely to hear that each team did so well that all seven colors would be featured, and even better to hear that Team Purple would be getting an additional page ;) Go pick up a copy now and check out all of the pictures!

Here's the magazine and the two pages for Team Lilac:




As you can imagine after a full morning of photographing my "bride and bridesmaid" and then spending the afternoon photographing the table and all of the details there were a TON of pictures so I'll share some additional/larger versions here for you to enjoy. Katy is wearing the Lotus dress by Siri in the color Iris, I loved the pleating on the top:


I had way too much fun with Bridget and Katy. It kind of makes me want to put together an end of year party and invite all my couples so I can see everyone again and they can meet each other - is that weird?


Who says that bridesmaids have to carry bouquets? This is the Rose Tulip Mini dress by Lynn Lugo from Flair (side note I interviewed the Flair team last year and you can read more **here**)


We did both traditional flower centerpieces and elegant candle arrangements:


I'd totally photograph Anna and Andrew's wedding if they were real people"


I am sure that Bridget will not mind that pretty much every picture of her involved a martini glass. Alas, it was filled with only water but Bridget is an excellent fake martini drinker :)


Letterpress menus inside and out:


[You have to sing the next part of my blog out loud to the tune of "These are a few of my favorite things" please]
Cupcakes and tulips,
Purple and lilac.
Letterpress ca-rds,
Chargers and glassware.
Professional airbrushed make up and hair.....
