Peter + Whitney

The northernmost woods of Minnesota are a magical place and an amazing location for a wedding, made extra special for these two as Peter grew up spending his weekends there on Burntside Lake, just steps away from the Boundary Waters.  He + Whitney were married there on a quintessential MN summer day and surrounded by their family and friends, it was the perfect setting to celebrate their love!  What a joy it was to be a part of the beginning of your marriage!  Congratulations and may you have many, many days as happy as your wedding day!

Dustin + Courtney

Dustin + Courtney were married at The Big House on gorgeous Parsons Beach in Kennebunk, Maine at the end of September.  The Big House is quintessential Maine, perched on the rocky coast just steps from a long stretch of sandy beach and the crashing ocean waves.  Surrounded by their family and friends, it was the perfect setting to celebrate their love!  Congratulations, you two!  Special thanks to Courtenay Goff for second shooting with me!

Johann + Yasmin : Part II

Part I of Johann + Yasmin’s wedding can be seen here and that was just the beginning!  Saturday was the big day!  The morning started off with a Maine sunrise, a lovely breakfast and getting ready at the gorgeous Norumbega Inn in Camden, Maine.  The Baraat was the first event of the day and is the traditional arrival of the groom’s family from their village to the bride’s home.  Johann ceremoniously rode a horse while his family and friends danced to the beat of the dholak drum on the way to meet Yasmin’s family.  When the Baraat reached the Milni, or the meeting point, at Union Hall, both families greeted each other and exchanged flower garlands to symbolize their new union.  Following this was the Anand Karaj, the Sikh marriage ceremony meaning “blissful union”.  All of these events were new to me and it was such a honor to be a part of it all.  I’ve said it a million times but I’ll say it again, I love weddings!  I love all the details, traditions (both new and familiar), I love the happy tears, the dresses, the hugs, the excitement.  But above all that, what I love most is love.  I love being able to witness and document the love shared by the couple as well as the love surrounding them from family and friends.  And there was an abundance of that here!  Congratulations, Johann and Yasmin on an incredible celebration of your love!  emilygriffith_0040emilygriffith_0043emilygriffith_0044emilygriffith_0041

Johann + Yasmin : Part I

Where to begin with Johann and Yasmin’s wedding?!  I am still speechless!  From start to finish, their wedding celebration was a dream.  I had to break my blog post up into several posts because I have so many images!  First up is the Mehndi Ceremony from Thursday night.  As a part of pre-wedding Indian tradition, insanely beautiful and intricate henna was given to Yasmin along with some of her family, bridesmaids and friends.  Manisha Trivedi, her henna artist (www.hennacafe.com) was incredible!  See…

emilygriffith_0130The letters of Johann’s name are dispersed throughout…so cool!emilygriffith_0133emilygriffith_0131The guys also tied turbans that night….emilygriffith_0132The rehearsal was Friday afternoon at Union Hall in Rockport, Maine.  Let me tell you, the setting was gorgeous but could not compare to this bride:  emilygriffith_0135emilygriffith_0136emilygriffith_0143emilygriffith_0144Following rehearsal was a welcome dinner at Marine Park in Rockport, Maine complete with lobstah!emilygriffith_0137emilygriffith_0138emilygriffith_0139emilygriffith_0140emilygriffith_0141emilygriffith_0142The Sangeet party followed dinner which is part of the traditional Indian pre-wedding festivities. emilygriffith_0145emilygriffith_0146And that is just the beginning!  So much more to come!

Tyler + Lindsey

Where to begin with these two…  They got married on the most beautiful day in December.  I’m not joking.  It seriously was a 40 degree day filled with bright sunlight, fresh, sparkly snow and Christmas was still lingering in the air.  I could get used to a winter like that!  And they chose the  Rochester Art Center for both their ceremony and reception which is one of my favorites.  Plus, they had so many sweet touches that made their day special and unique.  But that’s not the best part.  The best part is that these two are probably the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.  They are incredibly thoughtful, kind, relaxed and downright happy.  Oh, did I mention in love?  From their families to their friends to the love between the two of them, it was infectious!  My cheeks hurt from smiling so much!  From the bottom of my heart, congratulations on an amazing wedding.  You both were an absolute joy to work with and I hope you have many, many, many days as wonderful as your wedding!

A very special thanks to Sarah Field for second shooting with me!  And to Heather Ritenour-Sampson for designing the beautiful florals!

Mark + Sarah

Mark and Sarah’s wedding was my first wedding in Maine!  And it was a good one.  They started their day out by having their first meeting at the Wire Bridge near New Portland, ME.  This place in itself is incredible, the bridge was built in the 1800s and is believed to be the only surviving bridge of it’s kind in the US.  Then we headed to the ceremony which was in Mark’s parents’ back yard on the beautiful Ira Mountain.  Add in the most perfect fall weather and more importantly, an awesome couple surrounded by their closest family and friends and that equals an incredible day.  Congratulations Mark and Sarah!
