On May 19, 2017 these two beauties quietly said I Do on a sunny evening at Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA. We had the pleasure of sharing this special night with them as they eloped and will forever be thankful for that..
Happy first anniversary loves. Hope you are enjoying some icecream today.

Tented weddings and events are kind of our thing. For the past 7 years we have worked with our clients to create some amazing tented weddings and events all over New England! From the beaches of Cape Cod to the mountains of NH. An airport in Plum Island and back yards all over New England. Hardy Farm in Fryeburg Maine and the Stevens Estate in Andover, Massachusetts. Over the years we put tents in some of the most beautiful places!
Our clients come to us because they want something different, something that matches their style! That may be a wedding at Spencer Peirce Little Farm in Newbury, MA or a client appreciation party on the waterfront in Newburyport, MA. We have put a tent on the beaches of Provincetown on Cape Cod and on the shores of York, Maine. Yeah, tented weddings and events really are kind of our thing!
And we couldn't be happier with that! We love the logistics of planning a tented event. From designing a tent layout in our custom programs to watching the weather in preparation for the big day- we love every part of putting together a tented wedding or tented event. Do not let this intimidate you- tented weddings and events may have a lot of working parts but we will guide you every step of the way. We have been doing this for 7 years. We will keep the stress level down and help you work out every detail.

When done right a First Look is absolutely amazing. Are you thinking about doing a first look?
What is a first look you ask? Some of us in the industry forget that most people are not even sure what a first look is. So let me begin by explaining it:
The First Look: simply put this is when the couple sees each other before the wedding ceremony in a carefully choreographed private moment. This is done in lieu of seeing each other for the first time at the wedding ceremony
A first look is typically arranged well in advance of the wedding day with the photographer and wedding planner for the couple to see each other in private and capture those moments before the ceremony. This is worked into the timeline of the wedding day to make sure there is plenty of time allowed. The pictures captured are always amazing and will be cherished forever but not everyone is a huge fan of this concept. It was often thought that seeing each other before the wedding ceremony was bad luck. That is not the case for all couples any more. It is often one of the favorites parts of their wedding day. That being said- a first look is not something that is right or wrong in terms of etiquette. It is something that you as a couple just need to decide is right for you or now.
There are obvious pluses and minus to this part of a wedding so I thought a blog about this idea might come in useful for those of you who are trying to make up your mind about wether this will work for you or not.
Before you make up your mind up on whether a first look is right for you take a look at E & M's first look on Plum Island this past September. Photographer extraordinaire Zac Wolf of Zac Wolf Photography and I worked together to create this perfect, happy tears and laughter filled first look.... see for your self...
A first look may not be for everyone on their wedding day. Do what feels right for you as a couple. But trust me whether it is when you are on the aisle moments away from saying your I Do's or when you are turning around at your first look that feeling that you will get, the emotion that will come over you when you see your soulmate, the person you want nothing more than to spend the rest of your life with ail be amazing. I promise you that.
