This is an exciting day because we’ve finally got our new site up. After losing virtually everything this summer, we’ve finally faced the daunting task of starting over. With that comes lots of work; begging all the local photographers for pictures of our work, sorting through our amateur photos, and trying to come up with something interesting to say. That last one is the hardest, always. But, today the snow is flying and it’s off-season so check back often as I plan to add photos daily. Thank you friends! ~Sarah
The thing about this wedding is that we inadvertently got stuck hiding behind a tree…for the entire ceremony. It was held at Schwabacher’s Landing and we noticed that the guests were all walking right past the “altar” we’d created with large arrangements on Aspen logs next to the creek. Turned out we’d put them in the wrong place so down we went at the last minute to move all the flowers to right spot. However Anne had already begun to walk the dirt path toward her guests as right as we were heading back her way .
Of course, we hopped behind a giant pine tree and waited because had we not, we would have literally ruined every picture of the bride walking down her “aisle” because there is only one, very narrow dirt path back to the road.
Anne & her parents happened to step off the path too to wait for the musicians to finish before they arrived to the “altar.” I remember her father leaned over and whispered to her ” enjoy this moment” and set against the musicians’ singing a slower, accoustic version Jack Johnson’s “Better Together,” I actually wept. A lot.
Diane who was working with me that day was surprised that after all this time, I can still be so moved when witnessing nuptials. But I can and it was a really, really beautiful day. ~S
While working with Melissa, she expressed that lavender was really important to her…so, it was especially fragrant in our workshop that week.
Thank you for the ph

…Tiffany asked us to help her create a beautiful ceremony in front of the mountains at a family friend’s home. Matthew Johnson Photography helped us out with a few images from that day. Matthew tells me that a moose wandered onto the lawn that day and caused a little bit of a stir…
…followed by an intimate dinner-party style reception back inside the home’s great room.
