Elegant North Shore Waterfront Engagement Session | Nicki & Jon

Nicki and Jon chose an elegant North Shore Waterfront setting for their engagement session. We bounced around to a couple different locations including Split Rock Lighthouse and Palisade Head to shoot their engagement photos. Those have been places I have always wanted to visit while living in Minnesota but never got the chance so this was both a wonderful little adventure for myself and a different back drop for engagement photos. Nicki & Jon brought along their little pup and I couldn’t love him more! Just a little squish!

Also, can we talk about Nicki’s outfit choices- perfection!

So excited for their wedding day next year!

Magnolia Market

After moving my family across the country, transferring my business from one state to another, shooting 16 weddings in a row, and Dave starting a new job we had seen each other for about three seconds over the last 6 months. So David surprised me with a trip to Magnolia Market in Waco Texas for their Christmas at the Silos concert with Shane and Shane and Phil Wickham. It was a quick trip away for just the two of us but it was so lovely to leisurely walk around Magnolia Market, shop, drink some coffee, stand in line for 40 minutes for one cupcake from Silos Baking Co, and then sit on the lawn and watch The Polar Express. We made Christmas ornaments together and I managed to make it through the store with only spending a small fortune. And man oh man, what I would give for that greenhouse…a greenhouse has only been on my wish list for 30+ years…a bummer of renting and not owning your house.

No luxurious dinners, no fancy dresses, no big cities, just relaxing and snuggling with my number one while eating popcorn and drinking cider- all in warm weather. Truly a weekend I won’t forget. Marriage is tough but I married one of the best who loves me so well.

Also, I only brought my phone so enjoy some iPhone pictures with iPhone editing. 🙂

The Little Things- Boston Wedding PlannerInterview with Alexis of The Little Things Event Planning

The initial thought of moving back to Maine was incredibly tough for me. One reason was having to leave my ultra supportive wedding industry friends made me incredibly upset. The talented people who make up Minneapolis’ wedding industry were so inviting to me as I started my photography business. And I was nervous that it would be tough to find that same friendly, inclusive demeanor out in New England. But I was wrong! Hallelujah! One of the first wedding vendors that I reached out to was Alexis of The Little Things a Boston wedding planner. We met up at the Bostonian favorite Tatte Bakery and chatted about all things wedding related. I’ve loved following along on her Instagram stories and watching her weekly weddings unfold along with the occasional video of her pup. If you’re looking for a fun, hardworking (After one of her couples wedding venue burnt down just weeks before their wedding she managed to find a complete new venue and re-plan and execute it for the new space. A wedding goddess she is!), and kind planner I would definitely encourage you to check her out. Here’s a little bit more about Alexis and her wedding planning business, The Little Things.

  • Tell me a bit about you!

I live just outside of Boston, in a town called Waltham, where I just purchased my first condo and am putting a lot of TLC into it to make it a place I love being in! I spend so much time on the road and out and about.. I’m super excited to have a place that I can truly make into my own that I’ll love coming home to! 

When I’m not working or at home, I’m likely grabbing a bite to eat or a cocktail at one of the hundreds of awesome restaurants in Boston, and when I have a larger chunk of time, you can almost definitely find me on the beach, or somewhere by the water, or getting out of town to experience something new! 

 

 

  • Tell me a bit about your business, The Little Things!

Boston is my home base, but we typically do only one or two weddings in the city per year, surprisingly. We are regularly working throughout New England – Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and next year we’re doing our first wedding in the Mid-Atlantic, near Philly, which is super exciting. Blank canvas weddings are our jam!

  • What’s your favorite part of the wedding day as a Boston wedding planner?

Hands down, my favorite part of the day is when the bride is heading down the aisle to meet her groom at the altar. In the moments before she leaves, it’s just her and I and whoever is walking her down the aisle. We take a deep breath together, I coach her on how to hold her bouquet, and I make sure her dress is laying perfectly as she leaves. It’s a pretty special moment to be a part of, and when she leaves and is walking towards the biggest moment of her life, it’s an incredible feeling.

 

  • What does the perfect The Little Things client look like?

The perfect TLT client is a couple who’s wildly in love and looking to share the best day ever with the people closest to them. They’re concerned with their guests’ experience throughout the course of the wedding weekend and want things to be comfortable and lovely for everyone. They’re interested in the aesthetics of things and want the design of their day to be a beautiful reflection of their true tastes, but not so caught up in how things look that they forget about the big picture. They’re astute and concerned with the things that matter to them, and willing to let go of the rest. They’re fun, they’re kind, they ideally like wine (so we can have a glass or two during our monthly meetings), and they’re totally pumped about their wedding, where they’ll be on the dance floor all night.

  • What’s been your favorite venue thus far?

There are so many awesome spots to get married in the upper right USA, it’s hard to pick just one! Every wedding we do is special, but if I had to choose just one venue, I’d say my favorite is French’s Point in mid-coast Maine. 

 

  • Where is your dream wedding venue?

Herehere, or here. Can you tell I’m indecisive?

 

  • Any tips for engaged couples?

It sounds simple, but my advice is to trust your gut! There are a million decisions to make along the way – if you spend time mulling over every one of them, you’ll burn out. When your gut is telling you something, listen to it and move on.

Portland Maine Engagement Session

Even though it was a rainy day in Portland Maine for these engagement photos, we still had a great time together and got some great images! Allison and Ben currently live in LA but have a love for Maine where Ben grew up. They are working with Heidi of She Luxe Weddings to plan their coastal wedding at Black Point Inn in Scarborough. Allison and Ben flew in to Portland recently for some final wedding preparations (like cake tasting-lucky!!)  and we were able to walk around rainy Portland and photograph some engagement photos for them. Because of the rainy day their engagement photos are little moodier than my normal bright and airy photos but I love them just as much!
