Wedding at Stonewall Farm

Let me start off by asking a few questions.    Would you rather have pretty photos, or ones that are real?  Would you rather have a perfect wedding day- or one that had a few ‘hiccups” that makes for a more interesting story?   There are no right answers here… but I can tell you my take.    I would rather have real, authentic photos that show the genuine feelings of the day.   And to me… that is what makes them perfect.  (or perfectly imperfect)

My goal with every wedding is to capture it fully- and beautifully.   Though no wedding day is perfect,  I do have to say that Tiff and Douglas’s Wedding at Stonewall Farm came pretty damn close!   Wedding at Stonewall Farm showing the bride and Groom at the custom archway alter

Tiff and Douglas

These two are just the cutest!  And they chose to have their wedding at Stonewall Farm right here in Keene NH!   Over the last year- I had the honor of getting to know them and along the way- they have become friends.   To see the way they laugh, hold hands and joke with one another- it’s enough to make even the most “hard of hearts’ melt.    You will definitely see for yourself soon…

But one thing is for sure… Tiff and Douglas had the most amazing wedding day!  And it wasn’t because it was beautiful (though it was),  it wasn’t because it was flawless (but it was pretty close!)… Rather, it was because they love each other so deeply that no matter what happened- it wasn’t going to ruin their day.   They love each other so deeply … and it shows.

So without further adieu. . .

Getting Ready

There is just something so incredibly amazing about the “getting ready” portion of the wedding day!  So much excitement, anticipation about the events about to happen.   It’s so much fun to see the bride (or Groom) spending time with friends and loved ones as they prepare for the most amazing day of their lives!  Getting ready with Tiff and her girls was a great time!  No-stress, lots of laughs and smiles.  Just the way it’s supposed to be!   They chose to get ready at the Riverside Hotel right in West Chesterfield NH- which is only a few minutes from the farm!

One thing that makes me so happy- is getting to work with couples like these guys.   Tiffany is so incredibly easy going and has a heart of gold.   Being so considerate and kind- it makes everyone in her presence feel comfortable and cared for.   And not that I have to mention this at all… but Tiff is one of the most beautiful people I know.  She truly is a vision, whose beauty truly shines from within… only to outshine the already stunning outward beauty that she has.
