A Dinosaur Third Birthday Party

Last weekend, August turned three! As requested, we threw him a dinosaur birthday party. Grammy and Grandpop and Aunt Rachael all flew in for the occasion and we decked the house out in dino-craft ideas Pinterest so nicely provided for me (I can execute a dinosaur balloon, but I cannot dream that up on my own …). You can see my Pinterest inspiration page here; judge for yourself how we did copying it all! Thank you to all the wonderful content creators out there. August loved his party.

At three, Augie is kind, curious, smart. The questions he asks us keep us on our toes!

Here’s the three-year-old and his party:

Wedding: Jenny and Brian at Minerals Resort in New Jersey

A few weeks ago I drove down to New Jersey to photograph Jenny and Brian’s wedding, and what a weekend it was! Jenny is one of my friend’s former roommates, so I’d met her a number of times before and I already knew what a complete and total sweetheart she is. Needless to say, this knowledge made me super-excited to be a part of her wedding.

Jenny was a happy, relaxed, laughing, beautiful bride. Brian has an equally wonderful temperament and was also a joy to work with. AND, because he’s Scottish, their wedding had tons of Scottish details from his clan, including kilts and a little dagger slid into one sock. Awesomeness.


Jenny and Brian chose to see each other before their ceremony, and we had a great time getting some photos of them and hanging out with their families before the big event.

The Minerals Resort and Spa was a gorgeous setting for a wedding, and for wedding portraits. We traipsed around the grounds finding tons of great spots for photos. Aren’t they the cutest?

Before we knew it, it was time to go. The garden ceremony was perfect and so touching.

The bagpiper was incredible!

After a few group and family shots …

… it was reception time!

What a fun group! The party went on into the night and everything was absolutely fabulous.

Jenny and Brian, you and your families were an absolute pleasure to work with – thank you so much! I wish you all the best and hope you enjoyed your honeymoon! Now that you’re moving back up to Boston, I hope to see you again sometime soon …
