Ahhhhh!!!! So happy to share this with all of you- Laura & Ben’s Quechee, Vermont wedding from this past July is one of the three featured real weddings in the newest issue of New England Gala Weddings Magazine. I’m so humbled and honored to see this wedding in print- ek! And bonus, my favorite photographer-mentor-teacher-friend Carla Ten Eyck also has a featured wedding and she shot the Jackie O. inspired shoot….crazy, right? That’s what I thought!
“Most brides start planning the day after they say “yes.” For Laura Cricenti, though she didn’t know it at the time, it began two years before her boyfriend, Ben Percy, even proposed. When her best friend was planning her own wedding in 2009, they checked out The Quechee Club on Vermont’s eastern border with New Hampshire as a possible venue. Her friend opted for a different location, but the club – as well as the wedding photographer, Meg McGovern Hamilton of Rodeo & Co. Photography – made a lasting impression on Laura. So when it came time for Ben and Laura to pick a wedding date, they left it up to the availability of Hamilton and The Quechee Club, settling on July 9, 2011, with the ceremony by Lake Pinneo on the grounds and the reception in the rustic, post-and-beam Clubhouse.” Seriously. Ah.
“[photography] on Location Days before the wedding, Laura received a Facebook post from Hamilton, simply reading “Carousel.” Laura assumed the strange post was a mistake, but Hamilton was actually scouting shoot locations and had found Quechee Gorge Village’s classic pony carousel, a great spot she was psyched to share with her bride, however vaguely. Before the ceremony, Laura and her bridesmaids piled on to the ride for one of the wedding’s most fun shoots. “[Hamilton’s] personality makes you feel like she’s one of your friends, hanging out taking your picture,” says Laura.” Um. Thank you, Laura, you are the sweetest girl on the planet.
And, as a bonus, in the Inspiration Closet feature in the beginning of the magazine they featured my shot of Emily Herzig Floral Studios birdcage centerpiece. Sweetness! There were also a few other shots of mine splattered about the magazine- but you’ll just have to go pick up your own copy!
