A chilly + snowy weekend in New England is most definitely in need of some sunshine, so we’re delivering it the best way we know how: with a fab introduction to Lynne Reznick Photography, a talented photog that knows a thing or two about capturing the pretty. Think drop-dead gorgeous images filled with those heartwarming moments you’ll want to cherish for always.  Take a look at her stunning work below…

From Lynne Reznick PhotographyI chose the tagline “A fresh perspective for your classic love story” for my business because it truly embodies the way that I work and what I aim to capture for every couple I photograph. Each couple’s story is different and the detailed planning of every wedding story deserves to be honored. That said, some of my favorite images are the ones where the unplanned happened and it is was lovely, or adorable, or quietly full of emotion. By capturing the moments big and small, expected and unexpected, I seek to tell each couple’s unique love story as it unfolds and share in a whole lot of love and laughter along the way.

Welcome to the family, Lynne Reznick Photography!  We are so happy to have you! xo

Whimsical Summer Camp Forest Wedding

Loved ones gathered at Windsor Mountain for a weekend filled with waterfront adventures and a laid back spirited affair. From hand-dyed napkins, to heirloom antlers, to the hand painted invitations, to Wild Folk Studio blooms crafted by the Bride herself, every aspect was rustic chic perfection. Complete with laughter filled vows and a sweet walk down the aisle, Cambria Grace captured every moment here!

From the beautiful Bride… Mark and I wanted our magical forest wedding to be a celebration of the community we created together, our friends and families, not just us. The idea was to have a place where everyone could stay for the entire weekend, have adventures, campfires, and get to know each other. Since we spend a lot of time in New Hampshire camping and hiking, we also got engaged in the White Mountains, a summer camp was the perfect fit. We were going for a laid back, non-traditional, but spirited vibe; a weekend that genuinely reflected us, and that’s exactly what we achieved.

Every aspect of our wedding was created, designed and built by us or our friends and family. Since I am a floral designer in Boston, I decided to do all of my own wedding flowers, with the help of some good souls that were willing to get a bit dirty. I transformed the reception area from a camp dining hall to a magical forest wedding with wild, nature inspired floral arrangements in wood bowls, hundreds of feet of garland draped from the ceiling, and warmed up the space with locally made tapered candles in vintage brass candlesticks. I wanted the napkins to look worn and be different shades of blue. The only way to achieve this look without breaking the budget was to hand-dye the napkins. The finishing touch on the tables were antlers that belonged to Mark’s grandfather.

Many of our loved ones contributed to making our wedding weekend exceptional, from my sister-in-law Megan hand painting our wedding invitations, to our friend Jon marrying us, to our friend Brooke waking up before the sun to help me with florals. And that’s just to name a couple. It was truly a collaboration.

We lucked out with the most beautiful 80 degree fall weekend, while the leaves were in full color. All of our guests were able to take advantage of the waterfront. We swam, kayaked, and canoed.

One detail that was really important to me was to walk down the aisle by myself. My older brother, Alex, passed away when I was in college, and I always envisioned him walking me down. It was my way of honoring him. I was incredibly nervous to walk alone, but I knew he was there with me. Mark met me towards the end of the aisle and walked me the rest of the way.

I remember our ceremony being full of laughter.. Mark made a joke during his vows even though everyone advised him not to. It was hilarious, and perfectly reflects who we are as a couple.

After our wedding reception we had our friend Brendan’s band play a late night show in the camp dance hall. Little did I know Mark had a surprise for me. He jumped on stage and sang with the band “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis. I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry. I did a little of both. It was with-out- a-doubt the most romantic act he has ever done. It was brilliant, and I’m so happy it was caught on tape.

Our absolutely favorite moment for the both of us was watching our worlds collide, and everyone having such a good time. It was a very surreal experience.

It’s a day that’s one for the books with the perfect Fall weather, warm hot toddies, moments of sparkling glamour and a rustic New Hampshire backdrop. My words do it no justice but you know what does? Ruth Eileen’s incredibly beautiful imagery. Have a look here for even more.

From The Bride…Sasha and I met in California and have since moved to the East Coast. He is originally from New Hampshire which is home to one of my favorite little lake towns, Wolfeboro. I attended a wedding at Moody Mountain Farm in Wolfeboro a few years before I met Sasha. I fell in love with the venue and its outrageous views. Being from California I never imagined myself getting married in a place like Moody Mountain. But… a few years and an engagement later I was on the phone booking our fall wedding at that cozy farm. We wanted a modern feel, with a bit of glam and a touch rustic. Most of our beautiful day came together with the help of our loving family and friends. From the flowers which were put together by Sahsa’s Aunt Holly and Granny to the yummy naked carrot cake made by Sasha’s Aunt and Uncle. Most of the decor was DIY and included tinsel escort cards, gold dip dyed stumps, a whiskey tasting bar and a DIY Photo Booth. I knew I wanted our wedding to represent exactly Sasha and I’s personalities and being an event planner I couldn’t help myself with the small, personal details. The wedding day was even better than I could have imagined due to my vendor dream team. Our caterer executed every detail perfectly from the hot spiked cider at the ceremony, to the caramel pots de creme at the dessert table. The barn was like a dream thanks to our day of coordinator and all of our family and friends. But my favorite part was by far the giant, red-leafed tree where we said I do followed by tons of yummy food and dancing the night away.

Elegant Summer Wedding at Bedford Village Inn

While I may be a bit partial to navy, creams and green (my own wedding colors), there is no denying that this summer celebration is beyond beautiful.  Toss in the tulle skirt that the bride added to her gown and I’m downright obsessed. With Kate Preftakes behind the lens and Apotheca working their floral magic, I’ll be in the gallery pinning directly to my own boards for the next several hours.

From Preftakes Photo… The only thing better than Claire and Kevin’s gorgeous black tie wedding is their love story. The couple first met when Claire was just 12 years old and Kevin’s family was vacationing on Long Island. They had a very shy and innocent first kiss in the sweet summer air when they were kids and then reconnected as adults. They kept in touch through the years and reconnected for their first real date as adults in NYC. They had such a strong bond and just knew it was meant to be. And the rest is history!

Which leads us to this very special wedding day! The couple were married at the Abbey at St. Anselm’s College, Kevin’s alma mater, and their reception was at The Bedford Village Inn. Invitations were by Gus and Ruby and the incredible flowers were by Apotheca Flowers. Claire was stunning in her Vera Wang gown, which she adorned with a tulle skirt. 

This wedding was not only beautiful but so genuine and warm. I loved photographing this stunning, kind couple.

From The Bride… We wanted to have a late summer wedding, I grew up by the beach in the Hamptons so summer has always been the best time of year to me. We decided to have our wedding at the Abbey Church at Saint Anselm College, Kevin’s alma matter and also where his parents met. The Abbey is such a stunning space and Kevin’s cousin who married us is a monk there so we loved the family history that accompanied this venue. We are so lucky that the Bedford Village Inn is right around the corner – it has the perfect blend of rustic sophistication we were looking for and they were so accommodating with every request. I also loved the convenience that a lot of our family and friends could stay there and we could all just go upstairs at the end of the night. While I always envisioned more of a beachy wedding vibe, I decided to embrace the rustic elements of our surroundings and insert our own aesthetic to make it more “us.” When I first got engaged I was overwhelmed by all the gorgeous décor options, but after many hours logged on Pinterest I realized I was most attracted to lush white and green florals – classic, clean and elegant. I was immediately drawn to navy blue for our main color, I love its timelessness and it felt like a natural choice for late summer. From the get-go it was important to me for our big day to have a personalized and cohesive look and feel, so we designed a monogram that we used on our invitations and our printed goods throughout the ceremony and reception. Most importantly, we wanted our guests to have fun – we made sure to book a fun band to boogie down to, late night snacks (mini-sliders and lobster mac & cheese!) to keep the party going, and extra-long sparkles to cap off what will be a truly magical night.
