Photography Feature: Blair + Pat’s Vintage-Inspired Spring Wedding
Posted on: July 30, 2015
Hampshire House was pleased to host the classic, vintage-inspired wedding of Blair and Pat on May 12, photographed by the talented Abby Lorenz of Lorenz Photography in Boston. This creative bride blended her hippie-chic sensibilities with her classy, timeless taste to create an up-to-date wedding at the exquisite Hampshire House. With the intimate ceremony taking place before floor-to-ceiling woodwork and a rococo-inspired fireplace to the sounds of a live harpist in the Hampshire House library, this sophisticated celebration featured sweet, personal touches.
The bridesmaids’ mismatched light pink dresses paired perfectly with the bride’s eclectic BHLDN wedding gown and baby’s breath crown, while the peony and hydrangea centerpieces added a garden party touch to the indoor reception. Blair and Pat accessorized the exquisite Hampshire House with down-to-earth touches, like garden chairs, burlap table numbers, rustic wood serving ware and — our personal favorite — a donut bar stocked with Union Square Donuts.
Abby’s love for photography started while spending summers “up at the lake” at her grandparents’ cabin in Minnesota. After spending days outside, she loved spending evenings looking through her grandmother’s photo albums. She says, “I loved those old, yellowed, rounded corner pictures with grandma Alice’s handwriting noting the month, year and location on the back of each one…And while I felt sad that I wasn’t there for those memories, touching those photos always made me feel a little closer to that time I didn’t know.” She now makes pictures for people so they can remember and share memories, and sees it as her job to tell the story of whatever special event she’s capturing.
