Today's real wedding is special since I know the bride. Jordan is a friend of mine from back in our summer camp days! I had been looking for an East Coast wedding to feature, and when I saw Jordan's wedding pictures I just knew I had to share it! Jordan and Jeff were married on September 27, 2008 in Plainfield, New Hampshire. The wedding was held at Jordan's family farm, River Ridge Farm, which was built in 1792 and is situated on 180 acres. The Connecticut River runs right alongside it. From Jordan: "We wanted a wedding that was not going to to be too over the top, and that everyone would enjoy. We wanted to keep it very elegant, but not too glitzy, as it was on a farm. Our colors were navy and kelly green."
The groomsmen played a little croquet to loosen up before the ceremony.
Jordan's dress was by Vera Wang. I love the amazing detail on the train!
The bridesmaids received pashminas as gifts.
Jordan's friend Deborah was maid of honor (she went to camp with us also!)
"The most memorable moment for me was walking out of my house and seeing Jeff waiting for me. It was crazy--- It was cloudy all day, and I walked out of the house and walked over to Jeff-- we walked into the ceremony tent together--- the minute we stepped into the tent it started to pour. It was almost like it was waiting for us."
The bridesmaids wore navy dresses from J.Crew.
I love the bride and groom sheep napkins!!
"We put cards at each seat that had pictures of Jeff and I's family, and pictures of us when we were little on the backs so guests would all have something different to look at."
"I loved the chinese lanterns in the tent. There were 150 of them hung from suspension wires inside the tent. I designed the layout for them, and the tent guys worked very hard to get them hung perfectly, and they did."
"We really loved our horseshoe shape of the tables which gave a great "community" seating feel, even though there was assigned seating."
"The MOST important thing to us was the Band. We had Downtown Fever out of Boston, and they were AMAZING. They were a 13 person band with a full horn section. People still make comments about our band! They absolutely made the party."
LOVE these doorway shots!!
All of the photos were shot by Toby Morris, a photojournalist photographer who does amazing work besides his wedding photojournalism. He is based out of New York and LA.
Thank you so much Jordan for sharing your beautiful wedding with us!!
