Wedding of Kelly and David-The Villa East Bridgewater MA

This wedding at The Villa in East Bridgewater was perfect in every way! The weather was gorgeous and so was the wedding party! What an extremely fun group! I have never photographed at this venue but it truly had some beautiful touches! The Brides room was beautiful and had a great balcony where we were able to take a few shots. The ceremony was outside under a gorgeous white pergola and the reception took place in the Madera Ballroom.

These two were great to work with! I worked closely with Kelly while my second in command for the day, Bill Burke, worked with the guys. After the wedding was over, Kelly told me that she had mentioned to one of her bridesmaids that she felt like we could have been real friends…..It is always so amazing when my brides tell me how they felt like they had a friend taking their photos and not just another vendor in their face. I LOVE IT!!!!! It is always my goal to make sure that each and every one of my brides feel beautiful and comfortable on their special day.

Congrats Kelly & David!2016-08-22_00072016-08-22_00062016-08-22_00022016-08-22_00032016-08-22_00042016-08-22_00052016-08-22_00092016-08-22_00082016-08-22_00122016-08-22_00132016-08-22_00102016-08-22_00112016-08-22_00142016-08-22_00152016-08-22_00162016-08-22_00172016-08-22_00182016-08-22_00192016-08-22_00202016-08-22_00212016-08-22_00222016-08-22_00232016-08-22_00242016-08-22_00252016-08-22_00262016-08-22_00272016-08-22_00282016-08-22_00292016-08-22_00302016-08-22_00312016-08-22_00322016-08-22_00332016-08-22_00342016-08-22_00352016-08-22_00362016-08-22_00372016-08-22_00392016-08-22_00402016-08-22_00412016-08-22_0038

 

James & Trish’s Backyard Wedding-Meriden CT

When I talk with my clients, I always ask them about the details of their day and so many times I get “We are just having…..” or “because of our budget…”. Don’t down play your wedding day before it even happens! No matter what you spend, no matter where it is….your day is what you make it! It will be beautiful and it’s my job to bring out that beauty!!!!

On this particular  hot day in August, I traveled down to the Courtyard Marriot in Wallingford CT where I met up with our beautiful bride and her girls getting ready! Trish and James have 2 beautiful children together, so it was only fitting to have the ceremony at their home in Connecticut.

The ceremony was perfect! When you have children, you sometimes forget to tell each other how much you mean to one another, so it was extra special when the vows that James wrote really took Trish by surprise :). The formal location was a beautiful hill in town that was chosen by the bride and groom. Once we got back to the house the festivities began and the party went into the night!

Congrats to you and your family Patricia and James!

Meghan & Chad- Wedding Reception at Hyland Orchards, Sturbridge MA

Meghan and Chad…..boy did they have the right idea!!!! They decided to get hitched in beautiful Alaska! Although I would have loved to join them….I did have the amazing opportunity to capture their wedding reception at Hyland Orchards in Sturbridge MA!

These two had the most unbelievable day. On the way there, I got stuck in these micro burst thunderstorms that continued to pass through during the reception…….however, the sky opened up and we were able to get some amazing pictures at this fantastic orchard.

Not only does Hyland Orchards have a picturesk landscape, but they have their own brewery! What better food to go with beer….then fire oven pizza! AMAZING! This reception was so much fun and certainly reflected the couples personality!

Congrats to you both!

Carrie & Travis-Wedding at White Cliffs Country Club, Plymouth MA

On this beautiful day in August, I was able to meet up again with Carrie & Travis….but this time it was for their wedding day! I had met Carrie and Travis almost a year ago at The Publick House in Sturbridge MA when I was photographing their friend Erin’s wedding. We clicked instantly and they decided to book me as their own photographer for their big day. What an honor!!!!

The day started out at Hotel 1620 in Plymouth Ma where both the girls and the guys were getting ready! Then it was off to White Cliffs Country Club in Plymouth MA! If you haven’t been there……it is BEAUTIFUL! It sits atop a 175 foot cliff with astonishing  views of Cape Cod Bay. Thank goodness the rain held out all day and we were really able to utilize the grounds. The ceremony took place in front of the gazebo and the reception was in the tent as well as indoors for the remaining of the reception. We even got a chance to grab a few photos at sunset.

Carrie & Travis I hope now you are able to cherish this day forever in your lives! Thank you for letting me be apart of it! Cheers!

Lindsay & Jeremiah- Wedding at The Barn at Gibbet Hill- Groton MA

I had such a wonderful time at this weekends wedding. The ceremony was at a small church in Fitchburg and the reception was at the B-E-A-UTIFUL Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton Massachusetts. The couple got ready at the church to try and save time, but due to a large accident on 495 that Friday, family and friends were stuck in traffic and the ceremony started about 30 min late……didn’t stop these two love birds of 9 years! Family made it and the wedding ceremony went off without a hitch! Most of the Bride and grooms formals were taken up on the hill behind the barn where these beautiful ruins are hidden! When we walked a little further, there was this view……it was beyond stunning!  Family formals were taken on the Barngrounds and the reception was inside. Shooting inside was a challenge…….which this girl took head on! I LOVE challenging reception locations. Off camera flash full power and dropped the shutter speed with a tripod for some amazing shots! Can not wait to work there again!

Colleen + Sean Wedding at Highfields Golf & Country Club

Last fall I had the opportunity to photograph my first wedding at Highfields Country Club in Grafton MA. The fall foliage was absolutely stunning  and the views from the balcony where these two would exchange their vows were especially breathtaking! These young parents were “FINALLY” tying the knot after going through so much together! And lets be honest….if you can work together and get along as parents, then your marriage can survive ANYTHING!!!! 🙂 Was feeling so blessed to be apart of their special day!

Congrats Colleen & Sean!

Meg + Mark Publick House Wedding

These two love birds were so much fun to work with! I had done their engagement session awhile back at Tower Hill Botanical Garden, and needless to say…. I knew their wedding at The Publick House in Sturbridge MA was going to be amazing! From the moment I started to work with them, their body language just instantly told me they were head over heals for each other! All the details were perfect! Meghan had chosen a beautiful peacock them that jut complimented everything! They started out their day by getting ready at the public house and then had their first look out in the meadow! The weather held out just long enough to get the ceremony in! It poured for about 2H while the reception went on without a hitch in the tent! When the rain passed, we snuck out one last time for a few more night shots! Congrats Meg + Mark!
