Jessup & Patrick kicked off their wedding weekend with a casual and elegant rehearsal dinner at Mulford Farm which was conveniently steps away from the church! The dinner itself was small but then after everyone was invited for a welcome party which lasted into the night. The weather was perfectly sunny and the large barn doors were thrown open to the outside. Colorful flowers dotted the table and lights were strung in the “backyard” to light up the dessert displays and other food offerings. It was a very fun evening!
Although these images make me nostalgic for summer weather I’m still enjoying being cozied in this winter – I love having four distinct seasons and the different feels that come with each. We had a lot of fun this summer – some adventures and a lot of just quiet fun time at home. Norah is at a great age for exploration and is just happy to be doing pretty much anything! Enjoy.
Bea and Aymeric chose a 10×10 Royal Blue Leather Queensberry Matted album to showcase the images from their Prouts Neck Wedding. Inside the white pages were set off with navy blue mats around each image for a crisp and gently nautical summery look. This was a fun and elegant wedding!
A yummy and super easy weeknight dinner recommendation…..Norah loved it!

I last saw this family when their middle child was just a few months old – how times change! We met up at their Grandmother’s house which had the most beautiful natural light and even managed to sneak out into the chill for a few photos. It is so fun to be around SISTERS and imagine the relationship Norah will have with her soon to be born sibling – super special. Enjoy!
