Kinza & Andrew | A Moroccan-Inspired Wedding in the White Mountains

By | Videos, Weddings | No Comments

The Moroccan-Inspired Wedding of Kinza & Andrew at the Mount Washington Hotel

How did you two meet?
We met as medical students at Tufts. We were friends first, rotating together on multiple services. We got together in our fourth and final year of med school and then endured three years of long distance during our residencies before finally getting back to the same city and living in Boston together with little Clementine, our rescue pup.

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
My family has been going to the MWH for a number of years for Christmas and I always thought it would be such a special place to get married. We loved the history of the hotel and all the unique spots and it just felt like the perfect fall getaway for our family and friends.

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
No real suprises but happy everything went perfectly! The weather was a happy surprise!

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
Saying our vows in front of family and friends.

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
We are going to travel and enjoy time with Clementine!

Ally & Charlie | A Romantic Cliffside Wedding

By | Videos, Weddings | No Comments



How did you two meet?
We met at the University of New Hampshire in Stoke Hall…Ally was a freshman and Charlie was a junior. We knew “of” each other, then realized we were in the same history lecture hall, so of course we became study partners. After dating for a short time we have been inseparable since!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
Charlie grew up in Kittery just a few miles south of the Cliff House, so the seacoast is in his blood. Ally grew up in Massachusetts but her family always travelled to the Wells, Maine area for vacations. Ally’s parents and grandparents would visit the Cliff House for anniversary weekends and special events, so Ally’s mom recommended we check out the newly renovated resort as a possible wedding venue. Since it was seaside and local, we knew we would like it, but were blown away by how amazing it is there now. We toured the Cliff House in hard hats and closed-toed shoes the first time and knew we needed to get married there. The ballroom tied with the breathtaking cliffs against the ocean made it our #1 choice.

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
THE WEATHER! the crazy stormy morning turned out to be the most beautiful moody/foggy/classic Maine weather….the weather I crossed my fingers and dreamed of since day 1. I was so happy!! Other than that, we can’t think of any suprises…but seeing everything come together in one place; our cake (our chocolate pups), our guests holding our signature drinks, dancing to the band….the flowers! Everything that came together so beautifully was a very very happy feeling.

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
Our first dance, first look, reading each other’s notes, and our vows.

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Living simply and relaxed…we will ski in the winter, read books, play with the pups, have fires, all the good cozy things but also adventure things. Also, learning 500 ways to eat rice and beans (just kidding but really it will be nice to save a bit of cash!)

Anna & Noah | A Laudholm Farm Celebration

By | Videos, Weddings | No Comments

How did you two meet?
Tinder!
Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
We wanted to be near the ocean, but still have a farm vibe.  Maine is a vacation place for many people but still has that hidden gem of a feel.  Plus Melanie our amazing wedding planner told us to visit Laudholm and thought it would be perfect for us!
Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
We were able to provide all our own tomatoes for the caterer to use in all our salads.  And my dress zipped! I wasn’t hungover the next morning! Noah was more handsome than I’ve ever seen him. We got a photo with all 10 grandchildren and my grandmother who means so much to me (all of us are NEVER in the same place at once). We both wrote our vows the morning of, and even though we wish we prepared more they were very honest and loving.
What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
Having an amazing dinner (we really love food) in a beautiful tent with over 100 people that I love so genuinely, when does that ever happen?
Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
No longer plan the details of a wedding and tend to our crazy farm! And enjoy lots of hot tea by our wood stove!

Alicia & Nick | A Cape Cod Celebration at the Popponesset Inn

By | Videos, Weddings | No Comments


How did you two meet?
We went to high school together. Nick asked me to go to Senior prom and we have been together ever since!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
We both grew up going to the cape (Alicia- Falmouth and Nick in Hyannis) in the summer. We both created a lot of memories over the years at the cape together and both always dreamed of one day getting married there.

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
Before the wedding we both loved receiving notes from one another. Reading the letters was so sweet and reminded us how lucky we were to be getting married. We were both blown away with how the day turned out. It was better than we could have imagined. I was so happy with how the venue looked and how all the little details that we planned for so long came together. Also, so happy with the weather! Couldn’t have asked for a better day.

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
The vows of course! Also, when we walked down the aisle exiting the ceremony and saw how happy everyone was. Also, we were blown away with how much fun everyone had dancing all night. We were so pleased with the Boston Common Band.

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Enjoy each other and relax!

Katie & Ryan | The Ultimate Adventure in the White Mountains

By | Videos, Weddings | One Comment

I first met Katie & Ryan while filming Katie’s sister’s wedding (Remember this magical winter celebration?) in January of 2016. The biggest compliment that I can ever receive is to have the honor of working with the same family multiple times. When Katie contacted me about her upcoming mountaintop celebration, I had to make it happen!
It has been an absolute delight to get to witness not just one milestone for this family, but two. I couldn’t be happier to see the incredibly strong and loving family that Katie has joined. Their love for one another and for their families is the stuff that fairytales are written about.

Congratulations Ryan & Katie, enjoy this next crazy adventure!

I’m not a writer, so I feel as if any blog post that I compose on the subject will fall flat. Nothing I could possibly construct will display the seriousness of the subject. All I can say is that it’s often those with the loudest laughs and the biggest smiles that are suffering the deepest.
