Destination Wedding at the Full Moon Resort, Big Indian NY – Ashley & Mi

This summer, I traveled to the Catskills for the wedding weekend of Ashley & Mi. The two of them worked so hard to DIY their way to a perfect, heartfelt and joyful weekend filled with an amazing amount of personal details. The Full Moon resort was the perfect spot to bring together friends & family from all over to celebrate and enjoy all of the fun activities planned by Ashley & Mi. There was a campfire singalong, marshmallow roasting, and an outdoor yoga class led by one of Ashley’s bridesmaids. I felt a little like I was at summer camp instead of working!

Everyone then tied their ribbon into one long strand, which the officiant used to do a handfasting. It was such a beautiful and thoughtful touch. 2015-08-20_0023 2015-08-20_0024 2015-08-20_0025Photo by Jennifer White Photography http://jlwphoto.zenfolio.com 2015-08-20_0027 2015-08-20_0028 2015-08-20_0030 2015-08-20_0029 2015-08-20_0031 2015-08-20_0036 2015-08-20_0038 2015-08-20_0039 2015-08-20_0040 2015-08-20_0041 2015-08-20_0042 2015-08-20_0044 2015-08-20_0045 2015-08-20_0046At the end of the reception, the guests made a sparkler line, and Ashley & Mi led the entire party over to the Full Moon Roadhouse for pie and Contra dancing!  2015-08-20_0047 2015-08-20_0048 2015-08-20_0049 2015-08-20_0050 2015-08-20_0053 2015-08-20_0054 2015-08-20_0055 2015-08-20_0057 2015-08-20_0056 2015-08-20_0058

New Orleans Destination Wedding at Race + Religious – Heather & Adam

Heather and Adam’s amazing New Orleans wedding was so ridiculously fun to photograph, so I’m super excited that it was featured this week on Rock N’ Roll Bride.  You can check out the feature to read all about the inspiration for their day (Dutch still-life painting meets mystical New Orleans) and hear all about their experience putting on a DIY destination wedding from across the country.

Heather and I have known each other a long time, and she’s an incredibly talented artist and photographer, so when she called and asked if I’d be willing to travel to New Orleans for her wedding, I leaped at the chance. Literally. I’m pretty sure I jumped up and down. I had never been to New Orleans, so I rented an apartment in the French Quarter, brought my husband with me and spent a week exploring the city, including an awesome New Years Eve fireworks display over the Mississippi River.
