Anna & Ian

A Halloween Wedding at LaBelle Winery in Amherst, New Hampshire

This day seems to have been a long time in the making, but we finally made it!!! One engagement session, one pandemic, one mountaintop elopement and now one truly incredible day!!

Though their wedding fell on Halloween, it wasn’t a full out costume party. Instead, there was light spookiness sprinkled throughout the day, with the most gorgeous hints of burgundy and navy throughout. There was a giant skeleton that made it’s way around the party, and there may have been one tiny dino who showed up to the event, but overall it was the most perfect and tasteful Halloween event.

Ian and Anna are just so freaking amazing, and their friends and family are just as sweet. Getting to know both their parents especially over this adventure has been really awesome. The love and adoration they have for Anna and Ian is so great, and there were so many heartwarming moments throughout the day that just made their love for them so palpable.

One of the best moments from the whole day was when Anna and Ian shared their first look!! Ian’s reaction was so sweet. The way he looked over Anna, and every detail – from her dress, to her bouquet, her hair…. he took her all in and it was the best thing to witness. I LOVEEEEEE their goofy personalities (and Ian’s love for Dino’s!!!!), and I am genuinely and wholeheartedly so sad that this journey is already over with them. Though I got an extra year longer than I would have, it still stinks to know that there is no next time in sight right now. But I hope that changes soon!!!

Ian and Anna… thank you so much for letting me be the one to document your wild journey getting to your wedding day. I absolutely adore you both, and hope you enjoy my top favorites from your big day!!!!
