“Taryn and David’s gorgeous fall wedding at The Red Barn at Outlook Farm in South Berwick, Maine was beyond perfect. Taryn and David had the most beautiful fall day with clear blue skies and the air was just right. Maine and New Hampshire are special places for Taryn as she vacationed here since childhood. It was quite a project planning a wedding from across the country in California and she pulled it is off splendidly! Family and friends joined them from across the country and their day was filled with so much love and fun! These guys know how to have fun! I was so happy they choose the perfect location for first look photos in downtown Portsmouth, NH overlooking the river with the Memorial Bridge in the background. Thank you Taryn and David for allowing us to be a part of your amazing day and to capture such beautiful memories for you. We loved every minute!” –Casey Durgin Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

It is so hard to narrow it down to just one, the whole day was perfect and I love every moment. Getting ready with my bridesmaids in the morning was a great start to the day, enjoying mimosas and getting primped with my best friends was so fun. Of course walking down the isle towards my husband was a thrilling experience and seeing all of our loved ones who had traveled to be a part of our big day was so special. Our reception ended with some killer dancing and celebration with our top-notch band, Hot Mess. It was all amazing and I didn’t want it to end!

What did you DIY for your wedding?

Most of our decor was DIY and because our venue, the Red Barn and Outlook Farm, was already so stunning itself, we didn’t want to take to much away from what already existed. We used wedding photos of our parents and grandparents to accent the hearth in the cocktail hour foyer. We encouraged our guests to build our guestbook with polaroid photos and notes using the Instax film camera and glue sticks. My mother-in-law made all the candle figures with tree trunk bases out of a tree from her yard! They came out spectacular and are still centerpieces in our homes!

Did you have something old, new borrowed and blue?

I did! My something old was a pearl bracelet that my grandmother had given me when I was a little girl. Something borrowed was a beautiful mink jacket my mom had from my great-grandmother, which was perfect for the {very} cool late fall weather we had! Something new was my amazing wedding dress from Amy Kuschel which I could wear over and over again. Something blue was a little special something under the dress!

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Enjoy every moment because it is all over in the blink of an eye and you’ll wish you could do it all over again! Don’t stress about the small details, no one will notice that something was missing. Remember to take moments throughout your wedding day to step back and take it all in. It’s truly amazing to see all your loved ones, family and friends from over the years, in one place celebrating the momentous occasion with you and your new spouse. It’s the best day ever! -Taryn, the Bride
