When Kristen and Meghan’s wedding at Antrim 1844 finally arrived in October 2020, I’d already photographed them a couple of times: during their engagement in Iceland in 2018 and then again in 2019 for a stateside engagement session. By October 2020, it was time for their wedding! The couple and their vendors put appropriate COVID-19 pandemic precautions in place and we went ahead with a gorgeous late autumn wedding.

Antrim 1844 is a lovely historic property, with stunning rooms for getting-ready photos (scroll to see!), gorgeous grounds and helpful, friendly staff. We completely lucked out with weather, and had a not-terribly-cold day, with color still on the trees.

One of my favorite parts of the day was the first look, or rather all the first looks. Both Kristen’s and Megan’s fathers wanted to see their daughters so we found semi-private places for both of those moments. For the bridal reveal, I had both women twirl toward each other on the count of three so both got a chance to admire and be admired at the same moment. And also, photos of twirling dresses!

Kristen’s uncle served as the officiant. I love when couples have a friend or family members serve as officiant; he was funny and obviously happy for the both of them. Both women wrote their own vows, which adds to the personalization of a wedding.

And, last, who doesn’t love a sparkler exit?? It’s such a fun way to send off a couple, and I love how these sparkler photos turned out (scroll to see!).
