Wedding of Lisa & Evan- Hanover Theater Worcester MA

For those of you that know me, besides photography, dance is my other life’s passion! So when I met Lisa and Evan, my heart melted when they told me they were searching for a theater to have their wedding at. When they chose the Hanover Theater in Worcester, I could not have been more excited! Lisa is a dancer from way back, which is just one of the reasons why she chose this type of venue.

I loved how their first dance was not only intimate, but an enjoyable performance for everyone! Evan’s practice paid off 😉 After dinner, their was even more dancing and of course cake…..but not just any cake……Cupcakes from a custom Cupcake TRUCK!!!!

This wedding was so incredibly fun and such a joy to work. I look forward to many more jobs with Mark & The Crew at the Hanover Theater!

Congrats again Evan & Lisa!

Enjoy this sneak peek into their special day 🙂

Wedding of Melanie & Matt- Blissful Meadows Country Club, Uxbridge MA

It is hard to believe that we are already into July of this year!!!

At the beginning of June, I was at Blissful Meadows Country Club again for the wedding of Melanie and Scott! They had such an incredible day! Beautiful weather, a beautiful venue, and just a wonderful day surrounded by friends and family! This was the first time I actually got to shoot in the recent barn that they added onto their establishment a few years back. I have to say…..What an incredible option if you are looking for a local rustic barn wedding!

Enjoy this sneak peek into their special day!

Congrats Again Melanie & Matt!!

Wedding of Stephanie and Shawn- The Ranch Golf Club in Southwick, MA

Last weekend Taylor and I headed out to The Ranch Golf Club out in Western Massachusetts for the Wedding of Stephanie and Shawn. We started the day off dry, but soon the rain came in forcing the ceremony inside. However, this venue had some wonderful options for a rainy day! The barn made for a wonderful ceremony space and the covered porch was the prefect place for some dry outdoor portraits :). Although it may not have been what they originally envisioned…..it was BEAUTIFUL!

Please enjoy this little sneak peek into their big day!

Wedding of Nicole & Mike- Salem Cross Inn, West Brookfield MA

On this Cinco de Mayo, I was at the first wedding venue I ever photographed ( almost 7 years ago!!!) …….The Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield Mass! It was a gorgeous day….one of the few this season, and Nicole & Mike were getting ready to see each other for the first time before they said I DO! It was beautiful. You could tell Mike was a little nervous, but once he saw Nicole in her stunning gown, I don’t think he ever stopped smiling. There are so many wonderful locations for photographs at this venue! From the rustic red barn to the  open field, you couldn’t possibly find a bad spot.

Once they were done with formals, the guest arrived and they prepared for their big moment when they finally become husband and wife! These two were so goofy and fun to work with. From their vows, to their first dance, you couldn’t  begin to  guess what they were going to do next!

Once the formalities were over, it was time to party with Ellis Falls. The bride and groom had seen them up in Maine and loved then so much, they booked them for their reception! OMG these guys were fantastic! I really hope to see them in the future at more weddings….even though they typically play at venues up north.

Enjoy this little peak into Mike & Nicole’s big day!!!

Special Thanks to Meg at What Cheer Photo for helping second shoot this wedding while my back heals 🙂

Wedding of Taylor & Mike- Indian Pond Country Club, Kingston MA

About 2 weeks ago, Stephanie and I headed out to Indian Pond Country Club for the wedding of Taylor and Mike! The ceremony took place indoors right in front of a beautiful gas fireplace, followed by some bridal party photos out on the course. We had the challenge of getting the entire bridal party down to the bridge, and it was pretty much smooth sailing once we found the lost golf cart with the wedding party and my second shooter in it. LOL. There was certainly never a dull moment! Not only was the bride and groom a blast to work with…..so was the entire bridal party!!!

It was beyond a pleasure working with Taylor & Mike and I can not thank everyone enough for the incredible night!

Enjoy this little sneak peek into their day!

Wedding of Aby and Nick- The Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton MA

 I was hoping that by the beginning of April, we would have some warm weather , but I guess Mother Nature had other plans. Friday April 6 turned out to be a snowy day for Aby & Nick’s Wedding, but it didn’t stop them from having an incredible day! The two of them started their preparations at a nearby hotel and then myself and the girls headed over to The Barn at Gibbet Hill, so the girls could finish getting ready.

In order to have as much time to enjoy their cocktail hour, the bride and groom decided to have their first look and formals done prior to their ceremony. Unfortunately the snow started a little earlier so they decided to have their first look indoors. Once family formals were done, it cleared up and we were able to get outdoors for a few shots as well. Even with all that, we finished everything prior to the ceremony so Aby & Nick were able to join their guests for the entire cocktail hour. It was a blast! Amazing cocktails, appetizers and a spectacular photo booth.

These two had an incredible night! Tons of dancing with family and friends with an incredible glow stick send off for the two love birds!

Here is a little sneak peek into their incredible day!

Congratulations Again Aby & Nick!!

Wedding of Carla & Brian- Lakeview Pavilion- Foxborough, MA

You know, there truly is no greater honor then having someone ask you to be their wedding photographer! Its even a little more special when it is someone you have know since you were a teenager!! This day I found myself heading out the door to capture Carla & Brian’s incredible day.

The day began at the Marriott’s Residence Inn located in Foxborough MA, where I met up with Carla and all of her stunning bridesmaids! Once all her final touches were complete, we headed off to the Lakeview Pavilion where the ceremony would take place in their stunning grand ballroom.

As soon as you walked in, you couldn’t help but stare at the exquisite swarovski crystals that hung directly from the windows where Brian & Carla would become husband and wife. Everything was perfect and as soon as Brian laid his eyes on his bride for the first time, I don’t think either one of them stoped smiling  the entire night!

Marc & Josh from JAM Events once again kept the dance floor and Photo Booth moving right until the very end of the night! Always such a pleasure working with these guys!

 I hope you all enjoy this sneak peek into the bride & groom’s beautiful day!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Carroll!!!

With their 2 boys by their side, they exchanged vows at Holy Name Church in West Roxbury and set off to the amazing Brookmeadow Country Club  for their reception.

Wedding of Arleen & Val- The Villa East Bridgewater, MA

This past July I once again found myself photographing at the beautiful Villa in East Bridgewater MA. Arlene and Val exchanged vows in a stunning church with breathtaking stained glass and cathedral woodwork. The two love birds then traveled to The Villa is a gorgeous antique Rolls Royce. The Villa did a fantastic job setting up their Grand Ballroom with a classic color scheme of cream and peach. Roses, Hydrangeas and Succulents made up each centerpiece and filled the room with beauty and elegance.

It was hard for guests to not get up and say something about these two amazing people, but once all the toasts were given, I snuck these two out for a little evening photo shoot out by the bridge. After that…..it was party time!!!! 🙂

Congrats again to these two!!!
