In this land of a diverse country, you’ll find yourself in a diverse wedding every so often. Several languages are spoken by everyone that day, at this beautiful place, under the beautiful sunshine. I think it was Italy, English, and Spanish (probably more), and well… Indonesia too while Tia and I talked to each other :)
The rest of the night spent on the dance floor. From the youngest to the oldest generation, everyone just knew how to celebrate.
Meet Nichole, whose obsessed with Apple tree for some reason. Well, after photographing their engagement session, and their wedding at the apple orchard farms (Thompson’s Orchard & McDougal’s Orchard), we definitely get obsessed immediately as well! The trees, the blooms, the color, and everything is so whimsical. (To be honest, we had a little regret, why we didn’t have our wedding at the apple orchard instead. Seriously).
Followed by the reception at their beautiful and sweet log-house. Nichole and Brandon decorated the house, built the wooden dining table and the photobooth themselves! Such a craftmanship. Easily, it became one of the most memorable weddings we ever did :)
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with other local talents to make this photo-shoot happened! We will do more of this in the future, not only to help to promote other local business but also to push our creativity and sparks a wedding inspiration to you. Meanwhile, enjoy our first gallery :)
Home sweet home never been as sweet as to celebrate your own wedding there. One perk of having a huge front and backyard is you can have all day wedding without being worried about the “overage” charge. This wedding held within 6 acres of private property, with a huge tent and even bouncing house at the end of the day. Although it might take Sam the entire weekend to mow the lawn, it is definitely worth it.
We met with the mother of the bride from the beginning, arrange everything together until we finally met with Dave & Beth on their wedding day. It is not that common for the mother to arrange everything, but everything ended very well. We got to know Beth and Dave, such a low-profile and sincere persons.
We met Alicia & Dave on the dance floor of her brother’s wedding the year before. Truly our honor to be able to photograph their wedding as well, we felt like their super extended family :) — same goes to the beautiful venue of Sheraton Portsmouth felt like our second home, as this is our third time to be back, although we’re not on their preferred vendor list (we probably should try to apply..). Since they didn’t have time for their engagement session, they decided to have their Post-wedding session, which will be coming up soon on our blog!
A very beautiful wedding on the backyard of Ashleigh & Peter. Especially to observe the mixture of 3 different cultures & traditions in this wedding (Jewish, Russian and American).
Most of the setups are DIY, and all vendors in this wedding are truly the best. Hats up to all of them! :)
Talking about being simple, how about this: No make up, no hair-styling, no jewelries, and less than 10 minutes of “getting ready.” It’s like talking about being comfortable and be yourself to the next level.
Intercultural wedding always holds its unique value and experience. Not only for the wedding couple, Pon & Grace, but also for the entire family(s) and guests. Different language, culture, and tradition are things that can hinder the unity of marriage, although it all comes back to our own commitment and attitude.
Grace always dreamed of having the traditional Tea Ceremony in her wedding, and it is definitely a new thing for Pon’s family. Well, you can guess how cute the ceremony went :) – but it’s all good.
This is one of the most memorable weddings we had. As we know already that they’re a power couple, this is also our first barn wedding and our first wedding with firework exit. Oh well, challenge accepted, and sure enough, the photos are well worth the effort. The Glimmerstone Mansion also such a fascinating place! We can’t get enough to photographed this venue inside out. Even the getting ready room is so well lit and very generous with natural light.
Congratulation Bethany & Dave, may your new adventure only gets better and higher from this point forward.
Power couple! Anita and Bryan. You can feel the positiveness radiating from both of them :) They are cheerful, fun and have a teen spirit. We mean… well, just go through this gallery until you see them at the reception. It is exploding!
This is the second time we cover a wedding at Frank Jones Center, as it is the only venue that can hold up to 800 people. Indonesian weddings have a quite large amount of attendance in general, so the options are kinda limited to pick a venue. That’s OK though, this place is elegant and hold the crowd pretty well.
Congratulation Julia & Jarrod! This is their second reception. As they both live in Ohio, they already had married and had celebration over there; but since New Hampshire is where Julia grown up and because her parents also still live in this state, they want to celebrate together with all friends and families here as well in New England. They pick Spirit of Boston as their venue. It’s a beautiful triple deck ferry. Enjoy the pictures :)
Up in Vermont again! This gorgeous State is like our second home. We love this Vermont so much, and we always spend another day to explore the city every time we have a gig here.
Mountain Top Inn is also a beautiful place. They have multiple point of interests which you can enjoy. Lake, mountain view, indoor outdoor activity, horse riding, you got them all! Alyssa and Tucker definitely made a great choice here :) and they are such a laid back couple. We had so much fun at the wedding, although the weather was brutal (upper 90’s) but we made it through the night. At the end of the day, they’re getting married, and (drunk) dancing all night long. It’s all good!
Della & Franklin has been in Long Distance Relationship for a while, and it is exciting to know they are finally tying the knot!
Similar like us, they’re separated as far as half the world away: United States and Indonesia. It is never been easy. Communication, commitment and trust play a big role to maintain a long distance relationship. Thank God we have all this technology to bring us closer, even the time-zone messed up our schedule for sure :)
This is a rather simple and quick wedding. They have their ceremony at their local church, and went straight to Chinese Buffet to celebrate their wedding. No cake cutting, no dance, no speech, nothing… straight to the business: Lunch! Well, that worked well for us too!
We started 2016 with this Winter Wedding of our beloved friends, Michael & Annie.
We’ve seen it all; since they started dating each other, gathered all the courage to talked about marriage, the proposal, went through pre-marital counseling for months and months, clueless and frustrated with planning a wedding timeline, and here they are today as a husband and wife.
For us, to be able to bear witness (and capturing) one of the most important points of their life is always a privilege. What’s left in our prayer now, is for them not to fight each other while walking through the kitchen aisle at IKEA.
