Rustic-Glam Backyard Wedding in New Hampshire
Elyse is an artist and so it was only fitting for Dan to propose at a Paintbar
. He popped the question by painting it on a canvas and she said YES!
I snapped this shot (above) while Elyse was getting ready. It’s a close up of one of her paintings. She is one talented lady!
Elyse, in her 1920’s inspired wedding gown by Sue Wong
, looked like she had time traveled from some old hollywood filmset.
Because of rainy weather we set up portraits in the old barn. I think even if it was sunny I would have wanted to do this. It’s not every day that you get a chance to shoot portraits in a space that looks like it’s strait out of a Vanity Fair fashion spread.
Live music. Always live music. My husband and I had a string trio at our wedding and I’ll always be grateful for that.
I know it’s a little difficult to read the sign but inside the heart says “workcamp.” It’s the logo for a camp that I’ve volunteered at and this is actually where I met Elyse and her family for the first time. Her family runs a nonprofit, christian based organization that mobilizes students and young adults to serve in the community. It’s called workcampNE
. Check them out!
Special thanks so everyone who made this day possible!
