If you told me in 2010 when I photographed my very first wedding that someday I would be standing in the venue I own, looking through my camera at a bride and groom, I wouldn’t believe you. I'm not sure If I even believe you it now.
Frank and I have spent over a year imagining what every person who walks into Takk House would want. Down to the light in the rooms, the color on the wall and the placement of each hand selected piece of furniture.
I have traveled to so many amazing venues in my photography career that were so unique and different. I have been so lucky to have had the opportunity to go on so many fun adventures! Frank has assisted me in shooting weddings in Brooklyn, Lake Placid, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Boston…etc! We wanted to capture the energy and characteristics of these venues and the couples who brought us to them.
We are not a traditional minded couple. We are a little offbeat and like being able to express our personalities. We want people who celebrate anything at Takk House to feel that way. Be yourself. Shine! We don’t like too many restrictions. We like to be creative. We like fun! So we created a mecca for all of these things. We are planning our own wedding right now and feel honored to be so informed and have so many options that fit our lifestyle and personalities. We want to share that knowledge and help out in anyway we can!
Takk House held its very first wedding event on April 25, 2015. This day will be forever historic in our book!
Seeing all of our work come together with a group of people enjoying it was an amazing feeling. It almost felt like I was inside a dream. I was standing in the Rosemary suite watching Jess get her hair and makeup done and could not wrap my head around how it could be real life. Being able to photograph the entire thing just felt like a true honor. Icing on the cake really!
Everything went off without a hitch thanks to an amazing team of vendors and guests! We are so lucky to work with such kickass people! This marks the beginning of something huge. We are looking forward to a full year of events and a lifetime of feeling this wonderful!
Jessica and Rick we are forever grateful for you. <3
