Antique Chic

Nestled away at a barn in Portland Maine, Vanessa and Lauren had the perfect antique backdrop to tie the knot on an airy summer day.

An intimate affair with a laid back vibe was the main objective for their wedding. Vanessa and Lauren wanted their guests to fall in love with Portland, Maine just as they had. Initial inspiration for the day stemmed from a framed cover of the New Yorker they have in their house. Specializing in stationery design, Vanessa designed all the paper products on her own, letting her guests know right from the beginning what they could expect for the day. Antique elements such as wooden farm tables with metal chairs from New England Country Rentals, weathered frames, and wooden barrels were juxtaposed with soft, textural flowers in pastel hues. For a touch of whimsy, each bride donned a floral crown along with their metal chairs at the head table.  Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events did a wonderful job sourcing all the talent for the day. Everything came together flawlessly, creating an ethereal summer getaway for all in attendance.

Outdoorsy Charm

Marrying their love for everything outdoorsy and rustic chic, Shannon and Dennis tie the knot under a Chase Canopy Tent.

Enveloped in the balmy breezes of summer, Shannon and Dennis chose to have their wedding under the shade of a Chase Canopy Tent on a private farm. Event Planner Wendy Joblon teamed up with Sayles Livingston Flowers to bring the couples vision to life. Twinkly lights intertwined with chiffon draping transformed the tent into an ethereal oasis of romance. Long farm tables were decorated with soft cream floral arrangements designed by Sayles Livingston Flowers. Succulents and mossy covered tree trunk slabs added a dose of rustic chic that was seasonally appropriate. Russell Morin Catering and Events served their specialty, savory cheesecakes which guests enjoyed prior to the main course. “We thought every vendor did an amazing job, however, Rebecca Arthurs captured the true love we have for each other in her pictures. Wendy Joblon did an amazing job decorating in collaboration with the floral designer Sayles Livingston. We were so happy with how everything came out,” Shannon raved.

Rebecca Arthurs Photography

bio_rebecca_brumley-wells_fine_art_film_photography_rhode_island_new_england

Rebecca Arthurs, known for her editorial style photography, is a true visionary. From lifestyle to details her photography is an art form. Her work speaks for itself, but we had her dish a little more for us so everyone can get to know the woman behind the camera.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your photography style.

I am a hopeless romantic, dreamer and tea drinker (I had my first cup of coffee this year!). I love hunting for antiques, deep conversations, hiking with my dog Rowan, and traveling for work and adventure. I’m a Fine Art Wedding Photographer. The majority of my current weddings are shot on film (think old school), developed in a darkroom, and then the negatives are beautifully scanned into digital files! I love weddings that are authentic & romantic, with lots of happiness and laughter. My couples also have a wild side. They are wild about each other, wild about pursuing their hopes and dreams, and wildly passionate about creating a beautiful life together.

2. What type of photography services do you offer?

Portrait and Lifestyle sessions are shot 100% on film. I shoot weddings hybrid, some digital some film.

3. What is the one thing you tell anyone you’re photographing?

I tell my clients not to worry about what to do! I’m here to help them relax and move naturally in front of the camera. One of the most common comments I hear is how pretty my “candid” photos are. And while that’s wonderful to hear, most people aren’t comfortable enough to really let loose and relax with a giant camera in their face. So the images that look so natural are often a product of my direction. I am an artist and visionary. I observe the mannerisms, emotions and relationships of the people I’m photographing, then intuitively direct them into authentic motions and poses that allow me to capture their true personalities.

4. How far do you travel to provide your services?

I’m based in Hawaii 6-7 months out of the year (living in Kailua Kona and shooting on all the Islands) I head back to New England during the Summer/Fall for those gorgeous North Eastern weddings. But I’m always happy to hop on plane to capture a celebration in a new location. Your imagination is the only limit!
