Moe & Barnaby

A Rom-Com Inspired Wedding at the Riverside Room in Manchester, New Hampshire

This day was a looooong time coming. And what I mean by that, is that the pandemic really did Barnaby and Moe dirty and these poor souls had to reschedule over and over and over again in order to finally have their day. When Moe initially reached out to me, what seems like eons ago now, I knew right away she was a strong, positive, outgoing and kind person. The way she spoke of her and Barnaby’s story was nothing short of beautiful, and my hunch of how strong of a couple they are together really stood the test of it all over the last year and a half.

I knew through every reschedule that it wouldn’t crush their spirits completely, but boy oh boy did I feel the heartbreak every time I got that email. But, through it all, they made the absolute best of it. And friends, their day was one of the most redemptive yet!

They celebrated and had their ceremony at their church, Grace Episcopal Church in Manchester, where Reverend Marjorie said some of the most beautiful words about them. After, we all gathered at the Riverside Room where they hosted a Rom-Com themed reception which was SO perfect!! Touches of personalization hit every piece, and the thoughtfulness that went into it all was beyond what I had envisioned. Moe had mentioned these really cool antique frames that we used for a few portraits in the halls of the mill and I just LOVE how they came out!!

B and Moe — thank you so much for sharing your day, and all your incredibly sweet friends and family with me!!! I really had the best time ever and I am so glad we chose to hang out for 6 hours instead of 3 ❤️ Enjoy some of my favorites! I can’t wait to send you your final gallery!!!
