Photographing weddings at Orchard Cove on Shelburne Farms is always special and this one was no exception. Two years ago I was there for my cousin (and Parker’s older sister!) Lila’s wedding to Jeff and it was great to be back again to document Parker & Elisa’s day. It was a tiny wedding but was made up for in joyous and loving energy – these are two lucky people whose families just exude warmth and happiness. I photographed Elisa getting ready while her Mom and Parker’s Mom made preparations in the same room. Grandpa the dog supervised but mostly slept! The ceremony was officiated by Parker’s Dad and there weren’t many dry eyes after hearing the vows they wrote for each other. We got to use Parker’s Mom’s fabulous truck for portraits and I just loved the stickball game that was picking up as I was heading out. Congratulations to both of you! xo
I’ve photographed this sweet family for the past few years – they live too far away but come home for a nice break to visit in the Grandparents every summer. It’s been fun watching the boys grow up and also meeting their newest addition who is speedily hitting milestones and close to walking! So fun to see all of you again!
I spent a fun drizzly morning with Ilana and Dickie at his parent’s beautiful home in Dorset, VT. Their spunky pooch joined in the fun and I’m looking forward to their wedding at Basin Harbor Club next fall – especially re-connecting with Ilana’s sister Laura and Brother-in-Law Pete whose wedding I photographed in 2012. Enjoy the photos!
It’s been a quiet spring on the blog here as you may have noticed – my Mom passed away on March 5th and business has taken a backseat to family as it rightly should.
I’m missing my Mom today and hoping she’s up floating on a cloud somewhere – relishing the coming spring, eating stinky cheese and apricots, listening to beautiful music, and enjoying watching Norah’s antics that keep us all smiling through the ups and downs.
Love to all the Mammas today – what a gift it is.
