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!

Lauren + Bryan's Wedding {Connors Center, Dover, Massachusetts}

Gorgeous fall wedding at the Connors Center located in Dover, Massachusetts. This estate sprawls over 80 acres of land and boasts green plush lawns, hand-crafted stone walls, and manicured gardens. Wedding Planner, Elizabeth Quill of Elegant Aura, didn’t skip a beat on this romantic garden theme that poked it's’ little head up just about everywhere - artichokes, pomegranates and even asparagus made it’s way into the center pieces. Crab apples cradled place cards. Greenery embraced candles decorated the mahogany mantels. Oh! And my favorite part of the night — when Lauren + Bryan delighted their guests with a ‘surprise’ grand entrance through a secret library door into their ballroom. So sneaky and romantic! The night was capped with a backlight photo on the front lawn. Lauren + Bryan climbed up on their double vintage bike, which also played its part earlier in the day as a lovely little shelf for their card box. How clever! Congrats, Lauren + Bryan!
