I met Chris & Tanasia one winter morning when they popped into my old storefront studio on their way to Scratch. The two had recently moved to the neighborhood from Virginia, so, naturally, we talked about what life in Maine was like for Southern transplants like ourselves. After our first meeting, I would continue to see Chris & Tanasia around the neighborhood, most often running into them at the bakery. One morning Michael came home from Scratch and told me the good news that Chris & T had recently gotten engaged! I was delighted when, weeks later, I received an e-mail from Tanasia inquiring about wedding photography. Of course, when she told me that they were getting married at The Barn on Walnut Hill in North Yarmouth, I was too excited. I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding there, and thanks to Chris & T, I now have!
One of the neatest aspects of the wedding was that Chris & Tanasia spent time growing the majority of the food that they served at their wedding. With the help of some close friends, they raised chickens & turkeys, and harvested the vegetables in the rain the week before their wedding! They had Local Sprouts on site to cater everything. It was certainly one of the more special (and delicious!) meals I’ve eaten at a wedding!
The following are just a few of my many favorites from this incredible wedding.
