Cloudy skies, soft white linens, and gray dresses. Touches of green throughout, beautiful views in every direction, and a gorgeous barn high above the valley below. James and Michelle’s wedding was a dream. Every detail was perfection and you shall see soon.
Michelle and James were married at the Granite Ridge Estate and Barn and it was my first time at this venue. I had been looking forward to this event for some time. I love getting to go to new places all throughout New England. And, although my job is to take gorgeous photos throughout the day and it is the same at every wedding, every wedding is completely different from one another.
When we arrived the couple was getting ready at the home that is on the property. The bride was in the final stages of having hair and makeup done by one of her good friends and all the ladies were laughing, crying, and getting ready for the big moment when Michelle got into her dress. Michelle’s mom was there to help her in her beautiful dress that she looked stunning in, while the bridesmaids were standing there in awe of her as she put her earrings in and sprayed a little perfume.
After everyone was ready, it was time for the first look. We chose to have the first look on the backside of the barn completely secluded from everyone overlooking miles of beautiful foliage. Michelle started her way up to James and when he turned around the emotions flowed. It was a beautiful moment that they shared and we loved being able to witness it.
The ceremony was tucked away in the woods and it was so warm and inviting…minus the few raindrops that fell from the sky. They exchanged vows, rings, listened to beautiful scriptures and sealed it with a kiss. We then proceeded to the reception in the barn that was just jaw-dropping. From the details, food and an amazing cake and treat display. Signature drinks were poured, and a ton of energy on the dance floor is how we ended the night.
So, without further ado, here are some more favorites from the night!
Congratulations Michelle & James! It was such an honor to capture your amazing wedding day for you!
