Rustic Mount Hope Farm Wedding

I met Bonnie on a cold February morning at Bristol Bagel Works to discuss wedding plans and photography dreams. Within about 10 minutes I think we both knew that we were a great match. We certainly had a LOT to talk about - house renovation stories, puppies, and coffee - all things we could most certainly talk about for hours if given the chance. When I met Erik for the first time at their Fort Adams engagement shoot, I totally understand why these two were getting married. They exude happiness. Pure, unfiltered happiness with one another and the life they've created together. They are not afraid to be silly, to have fun, to take on big challenges, or to push one another. 

It was an absolute joy and honor to get to know this sweet couple and capture their story. Their Mount Hope Farm wedding was just beautiful. Crisp October weather coupled with vibrant reds and the rustic vibe from the barn and property - it was a perfect way to celebrate Bonnie & Erik. 

I met with Bonnie & Erik before their ceremony for an emotional "First Look" down by the pond on the Mount Hope Farm property. These two were beside themselves - I hadn't seen a couple this excited all summer! We spent some time walking amongst the winding pathways and rolling fields before heading back to the gardens for the ceremony. The intimate ceremony took place within Mount Hope Farm's stone lined gardens next to the Governor Bradford House. My favorite part by far were the couple's personalized wedding vows and fun poems/readings.

The Cocktail Hour took place in the gardens with the "Potting Shed" serving as the bar. It was a magical fall night as guests stood sharing signature cocktails,  oysters and passed hors d'oeuvres and lawn games. The guests were led into the "Barn" for dinner and dancing right as the fog rolled in! It was certainly a night to remember!
