Jen + Matt's Wedding {Barn at Wight Farm, Sturbridge, Massachusetts}

When Jen contacted me to photograph her wedding, I couldn’t have been more delighted! Jen and I have known one another since grade school 9we both grew up in Sturbridge). Never when we were children did we ever think someday I would be photographing her wedding. Such an exciting honor to do so! Jen & Matt chose the Barn at Wight Farm in Sturbridge, Massachusetts to exchange their nuptials. Jen two adorable boys joined their soon to be step-dad as he got ready a hotel just down the street. Then, the boys joined their mom to bid her farewell as she made her way to their “First Look” — the first time Jen and Matt would see each other on their wedding day. What a heartfelt moment it was! Just after dusk, the ceremony took place in the Alpheus Wight Room, where Jen’s eldest son escorted her down the aisle. Not a dry eye in the place and smiles from ear to ear! The reception took place inside the big red barn which boasts rustic wood interior with post and beam ceilings. Perfect setting for a cozy winter wedding celebration! A fabulous first dance introduced the couple into the barn, followed by dinner and more dancing. The night was completed with a fun finale moment, which included some of Jen & Matt’s closest friends and family and 3 foot sparklers! A great way to end this incredible winter wedding story. Congratulations, Jen & Matt!

Stefanie + Denton's Wedding {Zukas Hilltop Barn, Spencer, Massachusetts}

Nothing says beautiful New England countryside quite like Zukas Hilltop Barn, located in Spencer, Massachusetts. It’s no wonder why Stefanie + Denton selected it as their number one venue for their big day! Everything takes place right here - the getting ready, the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. And what a fabulous playground Zukas made for Stefanie + Denton’s two year old daughter. Nothing cuter than a flower girls on a tree swing! The aisle between the raspberry bush rows made the perfect spot for Stefanie + Denton’s first look. Ceremony took place outdoors. Oh my! Tears and smiles from processional right up to the kiss. I may have cried too! Reception was held under the tent. Leave it to radio host / DJ, Greg Bedard, to light up the dance floor (literally!) — our couple chose magenta for their uplighting. Just after sunset, the sky became crimson and blue and we knew twilight photos were a must. Enough said. Perfect ending to a perfect day. Congratulations, Stef + Denton!
