I had the pleasure of photographing Nate & Kelly’s styled vintage engagement session at The Harding Allen Estate. Nate decided at his wedding interview that he would love to do a session like this for his engagement pictures. Kelly, not so much but we swayed her to our way of thinking and she rocked her outfit and style to fit Nate’s vision for these pictures. I would also like to send my sincere thanks to Carmen for allowing us the use of his facility. He was nothing but kind and generous allowing us the use of both the inside and outside grounds. It is always a true pleasure to work at this Estate. It is a stunning location and always has top notch service all around for not only the food, but as a venue site for weddings and functions.
I love all the stories of how my couples met. And ultimately, how they came to be engaged and married! Some are sentimental, some are funny but all tell a story of a love in the making. Here is Molly & Ken’s story. Molly met Ken at the Herrick Tavern on Karaoke Night by sheer fate. He was dragged out by a mutual friend that Molly hung out. It was only the second time that Ken had been out and Molly herself had not been out in months. For some reason that particular night she felt the need to get out! It was a night to remember and they began dating. As Molly quoted, ” and the rest is history”. Ken proposed on Christmas Eve four years later and they were married on September 7, 2013. Enjoy the journey of their wedding day.
