Ludlow Country Club Wedding | Ludlow Wedding Photographer | Bri + Kyle

I stood in front of Kyle waiting for Bri. I could see he was fighting back tears as his bride approached from behind. Having a first look wasn’t part of the plan, they wanted the first wedding day moment of the two of them to be Bri walking down the aisle, but a late October ceremony hung over their heads and they decided to make the switch and see each other beforehand. As Bri walked towards Kyle, I could hear the two of them cracking jokes, and although Kyle was emotional, he was happy. The day had finally arrived where the two of them would share the same last name.

These two.

Honestly, there are not enough words to describe my adoration for them- as a couple, as parents, and as individuals. They are absolutely fantastic people, and both of them wear their heart on their sleeve. I am so honored to have been able to capture all of the emotional moments of this special day last Fall.

B+K:
Congrats to the two of you. I hope it’s not too long before I see you again!
xoxo

Shaker Hills Country Club Wedding | Harvard Wedding Photographer | Holly + Mike

There it was, a smile from ear to ear. When I say Holly’s smile could light up a room, I mean every word of it. During her toast, her matron of honor talked about Holly’s personality, and it was quite clear that everyone felt the same way, this woman is a sweetheart. Mike, a little shy at first, has a big and fun personality when you get to know him. So many kind words were shared about this amazing couple on their wedding day.

I met Holly and Mike a year and a half ago, and the more I learned about the two of them, the more I understood their love for each other. I am so grateful to have met these two amazing people, and even more so that I was able to capture their love story last October.

Holly + Mike:
Thank you for treating us like friends and for being so easy and fun to work with. You two have something special and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Julie + Kyle Married | Highfields Country Club | Grafton, MA

Julie is such an amazing person. When I first met her, I knew she was one of those people that is easy and fun to be around, always smiling. I knew her and Kyle would be a good couple for me. Plus, they chose to do their engagement session in one of my favorite places, Newport(!!!), so bonus points there!

Julie + Kyle got ready at Highfields Country Club (that natural light in Julie’s room… right?!) and just as we were getting ready to go to the church for the ceremony- torrential downpours. October of 2016 was not a happy month as far as weather goes. LOTS of rain, but you know, with Julie’s stunning smile and Kyle just as sweet, we got through it.

J+K:
Thank you for bringing me along on this adventure. They say that rain brings luck, and I think you two will definitely be a very lucky couple, with more than enough love to share! Congrats again!

Cayte + Nick Married | Fall New England Wedding | Hudson, MA

Hudson Wedding Photographer

This New England wedding sums up the colors of autumn perfectly. Cayte and Nick had a perfect fall day, up until the torrential downpours; but luckily those occurred during the reception! These two planned an amazing first look at a local park. The bridge they met on was in the middle of the most gorgeous foliage (definitely peak foliage weekend!) and their family and wedding party joined us afterward for portraits.

C+N:
You guys treated us like family- you two are the sweetest. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness!

Hannah + Sean Married | Zukas Hilltop Barn | Spencer, MA

This gorgeous wedding at Zukas Hilltop Barn is so warm and so sweet, I am so excited to share it with all of you today. Hannah and Sean met in high school in astronomy class, and have been together ever since. These two sweethearts shared a first look on their wedding day and celebrated in an incredibly decorated tent. It felt like one of those late summer days, for sure.

Hannah and Sean wanted their wedding to have a science/nature feel to it, they incorporated beakers with ferns, and sent their guests home with test tubes filled with maple syrup and honey. Seed to Stem did an incredible job pulling it all together with the floral design. This wedding was so much fun, right down to the guests pulling off some great dance moves, and most of all, the love and affection everyone had for Hannah and Sean.

H+S:
THANK YOU. You two are incredible human beings and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have been the one to capture your love.
