Meghan and Joshua’s February wedding day felt like mother nature was celebrating right along with us.  Cheering us on with wild winds and heavy gusts.  It was a truly lovely day from start to finish despite the challenges the high winds provided.  Meghan was an absolute superstar – gorgeous in her billowy gown, and cathedral length train.  She handled the wind like a seasoned pro for our outdoor photos (lucky for me, she is a photographer herself, so she knew what we needed to do to get amazing shots and boy did she deliver!).  Inside, the reception room looked serene and inviting in tones of ivory and baby blue, with a few blush accents peeking out here and there.  I loved the vintage and sentimental touches Meghan incorporated into her big day, including an antique cake topper (obsessed!) and the cake cutting set from her own parents wedding.  Across the hall in the groom’s suite, the gentlemen were looking very sharp in their classic black tuxedo’s, and mini ring bearer Hayden did an excellent job of providing “ring security”.  A very sweet indoor ceremony was followed by photos on the grounds, an afternoon tea celebration, special toasts and dances, and a bubble send off on the front porch.  When I say that Meghan, Josh and I “braved the mountain”, emphasis should be on the word brave.  It was so windy and cold up top, but passersby cheered us on, and Meghan put all her knowledge to good use posing in the heavy wind, and I’m sure she was very glad of the elegant wintry cape she added to her ensemble for these photos.  It was a magical day, and I am so pleased to share some favorite moments in this little sneak peek…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
