We’re excited to be invited for a second year to display our photography work at the Seaside Wedding Show at the Crane Estate in Ipswich Ma. Last year was a wonderful experience where we enjoyed the sea air wafting through the castle, as it mixed with the delicious aromas of the caters’ offerings. I’m looking forward to seeing new faces, as well as my old friends in the wedding and event community. I hope to see you there. Please stop by and say “hi” and have a look at all the wedding albums and the slideshow.
The Trustees of Reservations who manage the property are inviting the whole community, and especially brides and grooms to be, to attend and enjoy this glorious location and it’s beautiful views. The event will be located in The Great House overlooking Crane Beach, and the Atlantic ocean.
You can also learn about your options for having an eco-conscious wedding at The Great House, a National Historic Landmark.
A National Historic Landmark, Castle Hill on The Crane Estate is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in the Northeast, and one of my favorites to photograph. The elegant architecture, panoramic ocean views, world-famous designed landscapes, and award winning Inn at Castle Hill’s Bed & Breakfast, offer a complete wedding package for couples who are looking for a special place to celebrate their love.
At this event, you’ll be able to sample food from caterers using local and organic products, learn about ways to conserve resources from florists who use biodegradable materials and sustainably grown plant materials, meet transportation providers offering horse drawn carriages, design companies offering invitations printed on recycled paper, and view couture gowns made of natural, eco-fabrics. Guests will learn how to create their ideal wedding day and choose sustainable options at the same time, from food to photography.

Chicago industrialist Richard T. Crane, Jr. first purchased the 2,100 acres that would become the Crane Estate in 1910. Crane was captivated by the beautiful landscape, and over time worked with eight leading architects and landscape architects to shape his summer retreat. In 1928, he crowned the estate with a grand 59-room, Stuart-style mansion, designed by the world- renowned David Adler.
