Hello! Today's wedding is coming to you from the beautiful state of Maine where Paul and I are enjoying a "staycation" - basically we're eating and drinking our way around all of the beautiful places we never usually get to (Camden, Rockland, Bar Harbor, Kennebunkport...) - I highly recommend it! The actual wedding took place at Renaissance Golf Club in Haverhill, MA - one of my favorite venues to take wedding pictures at - and it's one of my very favorite 2013 couples - Mr & Mrs Wolf!!!Quilling Card (along with handmade quilled flowers at each place setting)
Pay attention to the poses of the little figures on this wedding program...I may have decided to try to duplicate them later with the real wedding party ;)
Joya Beauty so obviously she was going to look amazing. Joanne jokingly asked me if I only work with absolutely stunning brides :) Hair was by the lovely Jeanette Ruppert.
Meanwhile the ever-awesome Audrey was hanging out with Erik and the guys
a) have some private quiet time together on this momentous day where everything else will go by in a blur (you can't exactly have a conversation at the top of the aisle with the priest standing inches from you)
b) take all of the "formal" pictures when everyone is looking fresh and perfect
c) relax and enjoy cocktail hour - champagne, hors d'oeuvres and time with your closest friends and family - vs. spending your first hour as newlyweds standing in a line and smiling at the camera
Jenn seeing Erik for the first time:
Not sure Erik could hold on any tighter:
Renaissance Golf Club in Haverhill is one of the very best wedding venues north of Boston in my opinion! The ballroom is beautiful, the outdoor ceremony site is set amongst the trees, the grounds are spectacular for pictures and Holly and the whole team are a joy to work with. I could have photographed Jenn & Erik all day but we had a wedding ceremony about to happen.
We were all done with official pictures and Jenn & Erik were ready to go mingle with their friends and family at cocktail hour but Holly kindly procured a golf cart and took us out to this cute bridge where we took pictures for approximately 4 minutes - hors d'oeuvres to eat people!
Les Fleurs in Andover, MA. Pretty wedding cake from Chickadee Hill Cakes:
DJ Michael Siagel was a joy to work with (the kind of great DJ who checks that you're ready before making any announcements) and he played awesome music:
Oh go on then, one more picture:
Now I'm off to eat more lobster...
