The Riverview, Simsbury CT / Wedding / Drew & Stefanie

This is a story about life long friends who over time found their true soulmate in each other. Surrounded by a multitude of many high school friends and family this young couple exchanged vows and rings at a truly elegant and beautiful location.  This wedding held a soft spot in my heart as they grew up in Wilbraham and went to the local high school. It was wonderful to see so many friends and acquaintances on this special day.  I wish you both many, many years of wedded bliss and as always…..sprinkled with a little fairy dust and a dash magic! Congratulations!

Twin Hills, Longmeadow, MA / Wedding / Brian & Bethany

Saturday, May 9, 2015 turned out to be one of those first spectacular spring days in New England.  After a bitter cold winter we were fortunate enough to have sunny skies and warm weather.  What a perfect day for Brian and Bethany to tie the knot at Twin Hills Country Club.  Brian’s grandfather officiated the ceremony and they were surrounded by the love of many friends and family to witness their marriage.  I wish you both a lifetime full of love, happiness and a little bit of magic.

The Garden House, Northampton, MA /Wedding/ Adam & Allison

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart”

Adam and Allison had a lovely wedding surrounded by a multitude of friends and family at The Garden House in Northampton. I started this blog with a quote because this couple created a unique love jar of hearts for their ceremony.  One heart was read by each during the ceremony and placed for safe keeping inside their jar to be read at a special time.  How appropriate to start this blog with a quote on hearts. It is my wish that every couple enjoy their magical journey.  For every once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.

The Harding Allen Estate, Barre / Engagement / Nate & Kelly

I had the pleasure of photographing Nate & Kelly’s styled vintage engagement session at The Harding Allen Estate.  Nate decided at his wedding interview that he would love to do a session like this for his engagement pictures.  Kelly, not so much but we swayed her to our way of thinking and she rocked her outfit and style to fit Nate’s vision for these pictures.  I would also like to send my sincere thanks to Carmen for allowing us the use of his facility.  He was nothing but kind and generous allowing us the use of both the inside and outside grounds.  It is always a true pleasure to work at this Estate. It is a stunning location and always has top notch service all around for not only the food, but as a venue site for weddings and functions.

Castle of the Knights, Chicopee / Wedding / Derrek & Alyssa

As I was thinking about how to write this blog I began looking for quotes on love and patience.  Alyssa explained to me that she and Derrek had been engaged for quite sometime.  It seems that the mantra for the wedding day was “Finally”.  I found this little quote which I thought was extremely appropriate and lovely.

“The beauty of marriage is not always seen from the very beginning…but rather as love grows and develops over time.” —Fawn Weaver

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Santucci…..FINALLY:)
