Seacoast Weddings Magazine, Michelle Rose of Minka Fine Flowers & Home, Laura Pope and I designed a seasonally inspired 4 part wedding series inspired by traditions and patterns of Scandinavia.  We starting calling it “Greenlandia”–party as a joke and play on my favorite show “Portlandia.”  But name stuck, and we embraced it.

Part fairy tale, part history, part New England…we wanted a very modern yet romantic look, but with a nostalgic nod at the very ancient past.

Mary Jo Brown and company at Seacoast Weddings Magazine featured the entire series together in a 16 page feature for their stunning 2014 magazine.  We were so thrilled!

I thought I would show each season it´s in glorious details and design and location throughout the year.  All of our wedding creatives worked so hard on each shoot too–I am so grateful for their design, amazing talents, and tremendous effort on each shoot.

Hope you enjoy it as much we did.
