Emily and Jake met through mutual friends while students at Emory University in Atlanta. Now living in Chicago, they returned to Emily's hometown in New Hampshire to treat their guests to an elegant celebration at her parent's home. Tropical storm Danny let up just after the barn ceremony for outdoor formal photos.

I ask my associates to take a photo of the dress when they arrive no matter the location. We've had attics and storage rooms, and we can now add basement to the list. Love it.

Emily's parents built this barn specifically for the wedding. The bright sunflowers and hanging stars added great splashes of color.


Beautiful reception details.


When editing these images, I was so struck by the light of the reception and how beautifully it played a role in the evening.

Toasting... cupcakes!

  1. This was such a great wedding! Emily and Jake were terrific and the rain stopped in time to make it an amazing day! Emily's dad gave one of the more touching toasts I have heard...you could tell that he was a kind man that loves his daughter dearly!

    Thanks to Kate Parker for making it all come together so smoothly!

  2. WOW! That Barn is so so so COOL! I love all the color, the details, the lighting, it all fit perfect! The photos came out great! So many wonderful expressions. What an awesome and unique wedding!
