Italy Street Fashion

As many of you know, I spent the month of April living in Florence, Italy and traveling the country. You may also know I’m slightly addicted to Instagram! Well, almost immediately upon arriving, I started sneakily snapping street photos of the beautiful fashion around me!

Italians dress nice. No t-shirts or shorts, no flip flops. They’re wearing the coolest scarves, toting the most amazing Italian leather bags, and following through all the way to the shoes on their feet. The old ladies, the young ladies – and most noticeably the gentlemen too!

They’re also riding their bikes and Vespas looking this good. Heels and all. I simply could not stop – I think this was my favorite thing to photograph all month! (click the collage to follow me on Instagram!)

Stay tuned as more film scans come back from my travels, and also for a compilation VIDEO I did over my “30 Days in Italy”! Can’t wait to share!

(huge thanks also to travel buddy Julie Williams Photography for introducing me to the iPhone app called “Afterlight” – such an incredible photo editing tool for your phone!)

Pete + Rocio in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Pete & Rocio celebrated with a destination wedding at Hacienda Tres Rios in Playa del Carmen, Mexico this March!

It was a gorgeous week with family and friends, so many attending from the couple’s home in New England, loved ones from Mexico City, and more. A larger destination wedding is no small feat, and I know these guys had their hands full, but their love and beauty as a couple continued to shine through! Congratulations Pete and Rocio on a truly special celebration of marriage!

The Mayan ceremony – complete with toes in the sand – was absolutely one of the most special and unique ceremonies I’ve seen. What a beautiful way to welcome Pete and Rocio into this new adventure together!

And of course! A tequila shot toast following the ceremony! (now, that’s my kind of party….)

Guests enjoyed a hand-rolled cigar bar, and a fantastic evening of dancing out on the beach! What a treat to see the awesome Latin dancing. The bridesmaids even splashed in the ocean! A great time was definitely had by all.

Following the excitement and festivities of their wedding day, Rocio wanted one last photo – the coolest dress shot I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph! Click through for a few more underwater photos with Pete and Rocio!

A wonderful celebration indeed, and I wish you the very best in your life together, Pete and Rocio! It has been so fun getting to know you guys, and I hope to see you in my favorite town of Portsmouth, NH again soon!

Together at Scituate Lighthouse

JJ and Laura are the sweetest of high school sweethearts, engaged to be married next year!

After waiting out the rainy morning, we had a gorgeous midday walk along the oceanfront near their home in Scituate, MA. Of course I loved including their Great Dane puppy, Munch!

JJ and Laura, congratulations to you both in this exciting time! I’m grateful to your sis for introducing us!

Snow Falling on Nuptials

Anna and Tim had the most beautiful winter wedding in Dorset, Vermont, complete with snowflakes and so many reasons to snuggle!

Friends and family gathered in a field at the intersection of two special roads in the town of Dorset. The snow was dumping down and so very gorgeous! Guests were greeted with hot cider and blankets, and we had fun snapping individual photos in front of the red barn! The celebration continued into the evening at one of Vermont’s (and America’s) best little restaurants. All in all, I couldn’t imagine a more perfect winter wedding day for such a genuinely lovely couple!

Anna arrived via horse and sleigh, completing the picture of total winter romance…

Theirs was one of the most thoughtful ceremonies I’ve been fortunate to witness. Loved ones took turns speaking, and telling stories about the very surroundings of Dorset and the mountains… how this beautiful couple came to meet, and the path that lie ahead for them together. All the while, snow continuing to decorate the scene.

There were no signs of complaint as everyone laughed and celebrated in the snowy field!

The party then moved on to the incredible – Bon Appetit rated! – SoLo Farm & Table in South Londonderry! I was so excited for the chance to visit and meet the lovely couple behind this gem, and the ambiance was just perfect for this intimate and loving day overall.

Such a sweet, sweet day in the snow… Anna & Tim’s wedding is one I won’t soon forget. Congrats to you both, and I wish you a lifetime of picking beautiful flowers and apples together!
