Lauren & Alex

A Vintage Inspired Wedding at the Merrimack Valley Train Station in Tilton, New Hampshire

Lauren and Alex’s vintage inspired wedding was so perfect. And what I loved so much is that instead of walking into the hustle and bustle of what’s normally a chaotic scene of getting ready for the wedding day, I walked in to calmness as it was just Lauren and Alex getting ready themselves. It was so peaceful and I felt like it set the tone for the day!

From start to finish, their day was so easy. Just weeks ago we were together taking engagement portraits and now we are celebrating them doing the thing!! I loved the vintage feel to the day. Lauren wore a simply beautiful blush dress with the most perfect lace touches, with gorgeous pearl touches. They hosted their event at the Merrimack Valley Train Station which I had visited with my son before because he loves trains, but I had never been inside!

The building was truly quaint. History spilled into every crevice, and there were even some really cool trains outside that we got to take portraits with. They did their first look by the lake and we took portraits all around the train station, and I just love how their vintage vision really rang true!!

Alex and Lauren — thank you both so much for allowing me to photograph your wedding day! I loved how laid back and true to you it was, and I hope you both enjoy some more of my favorites from your day! ❤️
