LMP on the Cover of the Hawthorne Hotel Wedding Brochure

The Hawthorne Hotel in Salem recently released a brand new wedding brochure highlighting what they do at the hotel. The brochure features photographs from their list of preferred vendors, and I was honored that my photographs were chosen for the front and back cover, as well as several of the pages inside.

The cover images are from a special shoot we did back in August highlighting some of the unique places within the Hawthorne to have photographs taken, particularly in their Grand Ballroom. I also have three more within the book itself, which is so exciting!

I love working at the Hawthorne. The staff is great to work with, and the venue itself is historic and full of beauty, from the large windows in the Ballroom to the original 1920s-style elevators, grandmother windows, and beautiful staircase (also featured in the brochure).

The Hawthorne is hosting a Wedding Open House on January 14, 2016, from 6PM to 8PM. I’ll be there if you are interested in stopping by to check out the venue and/or talk to me about photos for an upcoming wedding or event.

If you would like to check out the full brochure, you may view it here.
You may reserve your spot at the open house by visiting their EventBrite page.

I hope to see you there!

Fun Wedding at the PEM

I had the privilege of photographing Tory and Scott’s wedding on December 5. With the help of her bridesmaids, the bride got ready at the house she grew up in, a gorgeous older home in Salem.

I love this shot of the bride with her bridesmaids before they all left for the ceremony.

It was an emotional moment when the groom surprised her at the front door for the reveal. This photo shows just how excited each of them was to be see one another.

Prior to the ceremony, the bride and groom, along with their wedding party, headed toward the water for photographs. As you can see from the photo below, the wedding party was just as fun as the couple–we had a great time taking sunset photographs at Winter Island in Salem, MA, before the Salem Trolley brought us to the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Church in Salem, right down the street from the Peabody Essex Museum, where the reception was held.

After the ceremony, guests carried lanterns to light the way to the PEM. It was such a nice idea!

The reception was catered by Hawthorne Catering at the Hawthorne Hotel. The PEM atrium was set beautifully with fruitwood chairs and golden uplighting. You can see the band, Flipside, getting ready in the background–they were fantastic!

The bride and groom glowed during their first dance. Look at that smile!

Both Tory and Scott work in Washington, so many of their guests flew up for the wedding. Just like the wedding party, they were a fun group who hardly ever left the dance floor.

I hope you enjoyed this peak at Tory and Scott’s special day. What a great new beginning!
