Wedding of Stephen & Christine: Danversport Yacht Club, Danvers MA

The Wedding of Steven and Christine was one that I had been really looking forward too!  When I spoke to Christine, she was a new mom planning her dream wedding! It was apparent from the start that we were going to work well together 🙂 Fast forward 6 months and here we were…..the big day!!!

The two of them exchanged vows at the beautiful Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers Massachusetts. Reception was in the Terrace Ballroom where the staff of the Yacht club did not disappoint! Room was beautifully decorated with custom centerpieces made by the bride herself, and the food was fabulous as always! DJ Dres was mixin’ it up with music from the 80’s to today keeping the dance floor hoping till the very end.

Enjoy this little sneak peek into their big day!

Congrats Again Stephen & Christine!

Wedding of Kristine & Chris: Elks Lodge, Auburn Massachusetts

I had been looking forward to Chris & Krissy’s Wedding for some time now! It is always so much fun when I have a local couple. This wedding was by far one of my favorites! It focused on whats really important…..Love….Commitment….and Friendship!

Their ceremony took place in the same church I spent most of my teenage years growing up in; St. Bernards Church in Worcester MA (now known to some of you as Our Lady of Providence). After the ceremony, we then headed to St. John’s Cemetery. Why you ask??? Chris recently lost his father and so the family decided that they would share a little piece of the day with him. They had a beer with dad, snapped a few photos and then if was off to the Elks!

The last time I had been to the Elks for a wedding was a few years back and it had been dark out prior to us arriving. Little did I know just how beautiful the grounds were out back!!!!!! Gorgeous!!!! After we took advantage of that then it was time to go in and party with Josh from Jam Event DJs. 

Congrats again you two!!!! Enjoy this little sneak peek.

Wedding of Kaitlyn & Greg: The Barn at Wight Farm – Sturbridge MA

A couple weeks ago Taylor and I were back in Sturbridge MA, but this time it was for a wedding at The Barn at Wight Farm. This place was stunning both inside and out! For those of you looking for a smaller rustic venue….. this should definitely be on your list to look at!

Kaitlyn and Greg had a beautiful day! We were incredibly lucky to be apart of it!

Enjoy this sneak peak into their big day!!!!

Wedding of Peter & Natalia-Blue Hill Country Club, Canton MA

I am so excited to finally have this sneak peek up! Taylor and I had the privilege of heading back to Blue Hill Country Club for the wedding of Peter & Natalia! I am still blown away by the love that these two share! You can just see how much they are just head over heels for each other!

Natalia got ready at the country club and then headed over to the church with her dad in a beautiful antique car. What a beautiful church! Stained glass and exquisite details surrounded the two of them as they were joined together as one in god’s presence.

After the ceremony, it was back to Blue Hill Country club to celebrate!

Congrats Natalia & Peter!

Wedding of Casey & Chelsea- Zukas Hilltop Barn, Spencer MA

On Friday I FINALLY got a chance to work at Zukas Hilltop Barn in Spencer MA. OMG….seriously this venue has it all! However, what really made the day perfect was these two love birds! Casey & Chelsea had a beautiful day with cool dry weather. Because they had such a large group of friends, they decided to not have an official wedding party, but still took the time to include everyone in photos! It really was the best of both worlds.

Cheers to the new Mr & Mrs!!!

Wedding of Lauren & Bill- The Villa, East Bridgewater MA

This past weekend I was soooo close to the cape! Not for vacation, but for another beautiful wedding! I started at the couples new home in Plympton MA, which I honestly had never heard of before……but its super close to the cape and BEAUTIFUL!!! Lauren was so calm and cool……so you could tell she was ready to marry her best friend!! The ceremony happened at St. Mary’s Church in Hanover MA. For a catholic ceremony, it is pretty typical to not use flash……its distracting….just like cell phones ;)….. and this one was no different. However, the church was pretty nicely lit!!! Once the rings were on and the blessings were made…..it was time to party of at The Villa in East Bridgewater. This was not my first time at this venue, and once again the staff did not disappoint. It is always a pleasure to work there and they provide a great atmosphere for all their guests!

I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek!

Congrats again Bill & Lauren!!!

Wedding of Lauren & Charles- Shaker Hills Golf Club Harvard MA

So while these two are having the times of their lives learning how to hula & exploring volcanos…maybe….:)….I wanted to share a little sneak peek from Charles & Lauren’s wedding last week at Shaker Hills Golf Club in Harvard MA. These two had such an incredible day! From their first look, to the last dance….these two couldn’t stop smiling!

I have to say as a photographer, it is pretty incredible when you can go to a wedding and have 3 or more of your PAST brides there as well, celebrating the newlyweds!  Everyone had such a blast. The dance floor was full the entire night!

Congrats again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Spencer!!!!

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!!
