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!
Well, It’s wedding and engagement season<3 What a fabulous year when I can photograph a sister’s wedding then another sister’s engagement session and then another wedding in 2016. Life is definitely good and even better when shared with this particular family. I’ve decided that Emily should have been an art teacher. She came supplied with signs, props, a dog and thankfully a finance for her engagement session. I have to say, fun was had by all including Emily’s dad who was the caretaker for McKenzie..the dogs…photo debut! Enjoy Emily & Tony’s engagement blog as we venture through Quabbin.
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.

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.
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.
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.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Santucci…..FINALLY:)
Brian and Jadig got married in a fashion that was both very private and intimate. Surrounded by immediate family and officiated by Brian’s grandfather they said “I Do” in the red barn in Fountain Park. The barn is presently under construction and looks to be a fabulous venue location once it is completed. Both the bride and I fell in love with the rustic charm and unfinished walls while under construction. We couldn’t have asked for a more charming location for this sweet wedding. Many wishes to this young couple as they start their new life together.
