Elnara & Rosalie: Squantum Yacht Club Memorial Day Weekend LGBT Wedding

One of the things that makes New England so awesome (and ok, sometimes not so awesome) is the vast scope of weather and seasons and I love when clients showcase a completely different season for their engagement session. Such was the case for Elnara and Rosalie.  They took advantage of the copious snow fall this winter and had a wonderful Exeter, NH Winter Engagement session so when it came time for their Squantum Yacht Club Memorial Day Weekend Wedding, I was EXTREMELY excited that they got a perfectly warm weather day for their celebration.

If you follow me on facebook you may have noticed that I was completely enamored with Rosalie’s coif.  The peak of elegance and the slightest hit of rockabilly edge was to die for.  Hair and makeup were expertly provided by Tammy Tan and from what I could tell they were masters, and sweet as pie to boot. squantum yacht club same sex wedding squantum yacht club same sex wedding 0003 The girls and their attendants got ready in separate, but adjoining rooms as they geared up to unveil their wedding day style to each other in their first look.  Instead of boutonnieres, they found little representations of famous men in history that reminded them of each of their guys.  It was the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time.  Those little fella’s just hung out in their vest pockets rocking their personalities.
