Kristen and Todd – 07.01.12

It’s not very often that we do red and black themed weddings in the middle of summer. Kristen and Todd’s wedding was just that and a great change of pace for us. Kristen and her mom did a lot of it themselves and they did a fantastic job.

Kerri and Samuel – 06.16.12

Kerri and Samuel’s whole intimate wedding happened at the beautiful Peter Allen House. And their daughter Elizabeth was with them the entire day.

PS – All photographers should have the app Lunchbox loaded onto their iPhones for restless little flower girls to play with.

Another PS – Who knew DJs made good babysitters? ;)

Stephanie and Nicholas – 04.16.11

“We make our own sunshine in this family.” That’s what Stephanie said to someone during the deluge that was this past Saturday. And what a beautiful attitude to have when we it rains almost 5 inches on your wedding day.

We started and ended our day at The Peter Allen House. Stephanie and all of her ladies were fun to hang out with while getting ready. We used as much of the house as we could since it was raining outside. We met up with the guys at the church for the ceremony, which was beautiful. Then it was back to the Peter Allen House for the reception. The rain had turned into a complete downpour while we were in the ceremony and that lasted ALL NIGHT LONG!!! It was really just unbelievable. But the staff of The Peter Allen House and JDK can all be commended for an AMAZING job done making sure everything went off without a hitch. And the guests didn’t seem to mind either. Some of them had come from as far away as Italy to attend the wedding. It was a day that we will all never forget!!

Love this image of Nick.

Nothing like a call from Rome to brighten Stephanie’s day!

A whole bunch of Stephanie. She was just glowing.

My favorite. :)

There are so many spots inside the house to shoot. It’s like a photographer’s dream.

Stephanie invited her 4th graders to the ceremony. The thanked her by mobbing her after the ceremony. :)

Some portraits with Stephanie and Nick.

These next two images will show you just what we were dealing with as far as the rain.

Details from the day.

Stephanie’s dad passed away when she was young. There was a table to honor him and a picture. I love this image.

This couple has been married 62 years!!!! Bravo!!

Kaitlin and Tom – 05.08.10

This past Saturday, Allison and I had the pleasure of capturing Kaitlin and Tom’s wedding. While the rain held out, the winds made it a very blustery day! Kaitlin and her bridesmaids prepared at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the guys got ready at the best man’s house. Thankfully with enough hairspray and pins, everyone’s hair stayed in place en route to Pine St. Presbyterian Church. The ceremony was unique it that after pronouncing Kaitlin and Tom man and wife, a bagpiper lead them in the processional! Then it was on to The Peter Allen House for pictures on their beautiful grounds. Guests enjoyed a mashed potato bar among other culinary delights from Commonwealth Caterers and everyone danced the night away to keep themselves warm.

Leslie and Matt – 09.28.08

With hopes of a drier day than Saturday, Andy, Maureen and I headed to the Peter Allen House for the wedding of Leslie and Matt. Although I had just recently met Leslie, I knew Matt from a previous life centered around baseball. ;) And because of that, we were excited to capture their day for them, rain or no rain. There would be no rainout on Leslie and Matt’s wedding day. So the outdoor ceremony was moved under the tent and, much thanks to coordinator Lorri Rogers, this beautiful little altar appeared in a corner of the tent. Leslie was of course taking everything in stride. So with rain pouring down, Leslie and Matt married under the tent. And then, a miracle occurred. ;) The rain stopped!! Just in time for portrait time!! WOO HOO!! So we moved quickly through family portraits and then spent some time walking the grounds with these two. It actually ended up being a nice evening, nice enough that they opened up the tent to let the brisk air in. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time enjoying the final hours of their weekend partying with Leslie and Matt.

My favs are below and of course, CLICK HERE FOR THE SLIDESHOW.

LOVE THIS IMAGE. I think it really captures the personality of both of them.

We had a little challenge for the day with the rings. Andy won!
