Adena and Ben planned to get married at the Demolition Derby -– driving onto the field in painted cars, getting out of said cars and jumping onto the hoods to get married! Sounds amazing, right? But what they didn't plan for the hurricane that was predicted to blow through on their wedding day.

With the threat of a hurricane looming, Leah came up with the brilliant plan to schedule a photo shoot at the fair the day before the wedding, just in case the weather refused to cooperate on the day of. The result? These incredible photos.

Leah's plan turned out to be a good one, because there was so much rain on Adena and Ben's actual wedding day that there was no way they could have ended up with the photos you see above. They had to abandon both Plan A, Plan B and then improvise a Plan C when it came to the wedding itself.

Thankfully, their talented photographer, the one and only Leah LaRiccia was able to roll with the hurricane-style punches, while still capturing the energy of the day in her beautiful and creative images.

Leah explains, "I cater to nontraditional clients because I enjoy collaborating with creative couples whose weddings don't fit a particular mold. I love when weddings flaunt the unique personalities of my clients, and my greatest joy is getting those personalities to shine through in the photography. My goal is to have my clients laughing and smiling when they receive their photos!"

  1. think Annie Potts in Ghostbusters hitting the bell and yelling "We GOT ONE!" – that's how I feel about this post – I think we just found a photographer (hope her schedule, rates, etc agree)
    good thing we're in Massachusetts!

  2. Wow, what an awesome locale for a wedding and for a photoshoot in general. The couple looks awesome (Converse love!) and the photos look great. Rad all around.

    • Which is why you make prints 🙂 And I'm not talking CVS or Walgreens $0.39 prints.
      Digital files are just negatives. And negatives have always been relatively fragile things.

  3. This looks awesome and I'm glad they were able to make their party come alive in the vegetable barn! What a wonderful spontaneous idea. Everyone looks happy and relaxed, and like they're having loads of fun. Party on!

  4. MARSHFIELD FAIR WAAAT WAAAT. my favorite place in the whole wide world. <3 what a great idea, and AMAZING pics! (and yes, i remember this rain…such a bummer!)
