Love Story: Sarah and Bob

April 16 • 2014

Sarah & Bob

Mashpee, MA

Sarah and Bob were married in a church wedding ceremony at the Christ the King Parish in Mashpee, MA.  Their beach wedding reception was held at the Hyannis Yacht Club in Hyannis, Cape Cod, MA.  The Cape is very lovely this time of year, and not yet too crowded. It was a nice relaxed wedding and perfectly reflected Sarah and Bob’s love of the ocean, the beach and boating.  Sarah got ready at her family’s Duxbury home where both she and her mother grew up.  Her own mother got ready for her wedding there as well.

How to Instagram Your Wedding

April 10 • 2014

In our world of instant gratification it can be difficult to wait weeks (or months) to see the results of your professional wedding pictures. With all the excitement during your big day, it can be a nice addition to your pro images to also have your friends and family sharing photos in real time. With a wedding of 50+ attendees who are likely to have their cell phones, Instagram is a quick and easy way to get multiple perspectives on your big day, and it lets your guest be involved.

Not only does it give you better perspective on your day and capture unique moments that only your friends and family can photograph, it can also be a great way to connect with the guests who were unable to make it to the ceremony.

Here are a few ways to use Instagram on your wedding day.

Instagram Wedding | Love and Lobster | loveandlobster.com

#GetAHashtag

This will help you and your guests keep track of everyone’s photos from the wedding on Instagram.  Type your hashtag into Google to make sure its not already in use; you want it to be original and easy to remember (short is best). Something like #sallywaltersayido

Make a Sign

Have a sign on display that reads “If you Instagram, use hashtag #yourhashtag.” It should be something simple and you don’t need to invest in a professionally designed sign, something as simple as a chalkboard sign is perfect.

Ceremony program

Include the hashtag in your wedding program, or give out cards with the hashtag.

Slideshow

For the digitally savvy, you can set up a slideshow of the Instagram photos  at your wedding reception with your hashtag by using the Evenstagram app.

Remember the good times

Share all the photos with your guests and friends online post-wedding by creating a slideshow with Statigram.

Print your images

If you still love the way a photo feels you might want to print your Instagram photos using Printsagram. You can have your photos turned into mini books, calenders or posters. And in case you don’t want to limit the images to just the images you took,  have guests email you the original files of the photos that you want to print. Instagram has copyright restrictions, that won’t allow you   to print your guests’ photos directly from the platform.

Maine Wedding Survey Results

April 03 • 2014

We have so much love for all our readers who own wedding businesses and put their heart and soul into making couples dream weddings come to life. We know a lot of our readers are photographers, caterers, florists and venue owners, and we wanted to say thank you for everything you do!

Also, we think it’s so important to help you grow your business, since most of you work from your kitchen table or a small office and don’t get to hear about, and learn from the successes of other wedding pros. We recently supported Tide Creative in collecting data on the wedding industry in Maine and what exactly people are doing to grow their businesses. We hope this helps lead your business decisions so we can all grow as an industry!

Thanks to Tide Creative’s other partners: Greater Portland Visitors + Conventions BureauLove and Lobster,Maine Wedding Association and Real Maine Weddings.

You can read the full report and analysis at Tide Creative’s blog.

Love story of Molly and Ben

April 01 • 2014

Molly Hopper & Ben Sandrof                       

August 10, 2013

Private Family Estate – Claremount, NH

 

From Molly – “My fiancé and I count ourselves very lucky to have been able to use the family property that has been with them for four generations. The family continues to keep it a wonderful hidden secret. There is no grand gate or entry, just a simple driveway leading into 100 acres of pristine sloping hills leaning towards the Connecticut river, all with 11 summer homes for the family to visit each summer from around the world. The family has obviously had many weddings here and we wanted ours to have a different feel than the previous ones, so we chose a slightly different layout for the ceremony and reception. But really we just used the amazing landscape to define our plans. And then Wayne, our photographer, really helped us with the time-line and making sure that we organized well in order to get the best shots.

I would say that the style we were going for was natural elegance. My fiancé’s, Ben’s, Aunts designed all the flowers from the fields nearby. We used the family weathervane as our logo on napkins and place settings, etc. And we used a lot of the tables, and linens from the property for cocktail hour and much more. Ben and I have been in the restaurant and wine & beer business for a long time so we really pulled our resources from friends and colleagues to make it happen the way we wanted to. It was pretty perfect in the end.”
