I truly believe there is no photograph more beautiful than that of someone in love. I love telling stories not only through my work but also through a short conversation with someone. My blog is a way to create a unique story in an organic way for viewers to relive their best moments all over again.
Intimate, small New England weddings are my favorite! Waterside vows, garden ceremonies and even small gatherings at pristine estates — they wow me every time. The small size only makes the day that much more special — there’s nothing more that you want, and nothing less that you need.
And please be assured that even with a small event, you can still have that traditional wedding day feel. I’ll photograph the bride getting ready, the family clinking champagne glasses, your charming ceremony and every other hand-picked detail.
To help you prepare for your intimate wedding, take a look through my favorite examples of small New England weddings.
This Massachusetts elopement at Marina Bay had everything you need for an intimate wedding ceremony, including a puppy! They said their vows on a gorgeous dock and took portraits as the sun set on their beautiful wedding day.
At the same elopement, the couple wrote love notes that they read while getting ready. I captured shots of them both as they read the handwritten notes filled with sweet thoughts.
Often times, the first look takes place at the wedding venue, squeezed in just before the ceremony. At this small New England wedding, the couple got ready and had their first look right at home. It was so sweet and they had privacy that most couples don’t experience during this moment on the wedding day.
So many New England wedding venues offer garden ceremony locations. With only 10 chairs on a luscious lawn, it creates a secluded, personal look.
Tented weddings also create an inviting atmosphere for small wedding parties. Here, you can see the small wedding party toasting to the couple. It feels like a happy family gathering and that can be all you need!
Live streaming is an option too. For example, one of my couples streamed their wedding to Australia, Brazil, Columbia and Ireland. It’s a way for others to be involved, without the issue of travel or guest accommodations.
Imagine a small group of your best friends and closest family members in a jaw-dropping estate like this. It’s a brand new style of wedding, but one worth considering. Plus, if you find an estate with accomodations, that’s even better!
