Nestled in the woods of Kensington, NH lies 400 acres of protected land and an incredible venue called Alnoba. While only 20-minutes from the popular New England seacoast cities, Newburyport, MA and Portsmouth, NH, you feel like you're deep into the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Alnoba is an exciting location for anyone wanting to get married near Newburyport but also wanting an eco-conscience woodland wedding environment. The Lodge at Alnoba is the first mixed use building in North America to be certified as a Passive House which features extreme energy efficieny and respect for nature & mankind. This space is a green bride's dream. Weddings here will certainly be one of a kind.
So many collaborators were involved in bringing this inspirational shoot to life and if you like something you see be sure to view the credits at the end of the post and give these talented professionals some love!
This lodge setting deserved impecable details to match the beautiful surroundings. We chose a light, airy and clean color pallette keeping in tune with the modern lodge vibe this venue exudes. The table scapes throughout included trailing greens, white pumpkins dipped in gold, deckled & calligraphed paper decor and tartan accents. The massive mantel decked in florals was a beautiful feature for the main lodge room and a perfect place for couple's photos. The stationery suite carried out the antler theme & brought life to the photos with a pop of tartan on the calligraphed envelope. Bride & groom were styled in classic yet modern attire with makeup & hair that complimented the look prefectly.
The desserts were provided by The Farm at Eastman's Corner , a community-governed, year-round farm and farm market founded by the Lewis Family Foundation. Eastman’s Corner is a model for economic and environmental sustainability, philanthropy, food production and education and is the exclusive caterer for this venue.
To sum up the day, this team we developed completely nailed our vision. This dream team of vendors really came together and worked seamlessly as a cohesive team. All hands were on deck in every aspect of the day helpings us coordinate, create, and execute this fun filled styled shoot. To all of our awesome vendors, our amazing models and the one-of-a-kind venue, we say "cheers" to fall weddings that take a modern but classic approach.
