There is always a little something magical about a snowfall. Lindsay wished for a little snow for her wedding day this past Saturday. I was so excited when I heard the upcoming forecast which predicted just that. How perfect can it get? Snow for a January wedding. Just what every girl who plans a winter wedding desires. I was so disappointed for Chris and Lindsay when I woke up on the morning of the 3rd expecting to see a dusting of snow and saw grass. Well, I figure, we live in New England, and yes, anything is possible with the weather! We began our wedding at Wisteriahurst Museum and lo and behold all the little angels began working their magic and it began snowing right after the ceremony. Congratulations Chris and Lindsay. May the magic of every snowfall touch your lives and hearts!
Life just gets away from you at times. Between working, kids and maintaining a home and business, there just never seems to be enough time in every day. I sound like every other Mom and business owner I imagine. I have finally returned from the vacation of a lifetime taken in my grandmothers honor to Italy. I had an incredible experience seeing new places, making many friends and spending much needed non work time with Nick. I couldn’t have asked for a better two weeks. But now, it’s time to get back to business and catch up on some of my blogs. I am grouping the girls, then the boys into separate blogs. It will showcase many of my favorite images taken throughout the season. I do hope I haven’t missed anyone. If so, my apologies. Senior portraits is another area I love of my business. I love capturing the “almost 18” young man or woman who in a years time will be off to college and creating all new experiences for themselves. I see this as the last time we as parents will view our son’s and daughter’s as our little children. They will soon become independent of us out making their own decisions and finding their separate ways. Their new found maturity and life experiences will soon grow and define who they will become as a mature adult. I see these images as capturing the innocence before this life change becomes a reality. I am an empty nester as of this fall with my last off to college. I have seen the growth and change in all three of my children as they have ventured off into their college experiences. I wish every one of my seniors who are making college decisions, accepting and signing intent letters, or who are choosing military service or entering the work force, the very best of a bright and happy future!
A lovely refurbished barn was the setting for Michelle & Mike’s rustic wedding! At our original wedding interview they had both mentioned a barn setting. I adore working in outside venues so was so excited for their wedding. We had our final appointment about a week before the wedding and met at the location. I like to see the location where I am shooting since I often start creating in my mind prior to the actual wedding day. The location was spectacular with rolling fields, a horse pasture, pond and of course the barn that had been converted for the wedding. I could only imagine how it would look the day of the actual wedding. Kudos to Gail & Michelle for pulling off an incredible setting for the union and party of this very sweet couple. Happy wedding day and wishing you years of joy and shooting stars<3
It all started on the Big E fairgrounds. Ashley and David met for the first time in September of 2010. Funny, four years later they got engaged in the same location and also had engagement pictures taken at the same time the Big E was going on. Can’t wait for the first child. I bet it will be at the same time of year as well. Certainly something I would totally expect with my attitude about, “things happen for a reason”. We photographed their session at Quabbin. Ashley & David had never been there before so I was more than happy to show them some of my favorite spots. It was a gorgeous fall day to say the very least. We had smiles, laughter and lots of playfulness with a sprinkling of romance and love thrown in. All a powerful combination for this beautiful blog. I can’t wait for the wedding you two. It is bound to be a spectacular event!
The Boston Bruins are a professional ice hockey team based in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. They are members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. That little blurb was information for myself as well as for this blog since I know absolutely NOTHING about sports. Christine & Mike went all out when it came to the Boston Bruins when planning to celebrate their marriage. They had a black and yellow sports theme which amazingly I actually knew was the color for the Bruins. Even the signage they used was yellow in some of the props they brought. What a fabulous and unique way to showcase their wedding. The flowers were gorgeous with black, yellow and white feathers, the cake a totally cool Boston Bruins themed cake and to top it off, all the bridal party paraded in with Boston Bruins jerseys on. What a fun and energetic group we had for this wedding. My heartfelt wishes for lasting joy and happiness are extended to both Christine and Mike. GO BRUINS!!!!
As a wedding photographer, we always keep an eye on the weather when we have an outdoor venue. Such was the case for Katy & Tom’s wedding. The sky was a little grey the morning of their wedding. I was just hoping the showers would hold off until after their beautifully planned ceremony in the gardens. Well, as the saying goes…. You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. In spite of the rain, Katy & Tom had a beautifully crafted wedding with artfully made signs, vintage photo booths, popcorn in many flavors and a BIG surprise, a baby reveal cake for the happy couple who are expecting their first little one in January. Happy Wedding Day Katy & Tom. Wishing you a lifetime of rainbows xoxo
It is with great pleasure and happiness that I am able to show case the images from Andrea and Jeff’s wedding. I had asked Jeff and Andrea both what they had found in each other as a life partner. It is with these responses that I write this blog. Jeff was quick to tell me about his grandparents relationship. It was such an ideal and loving relationship it was something Jeff thought he would never be able to find in his life. Then he met Andrea and he just knew he had found…the one! Andrea was given Jeff’s grandmother’s ring to wear as the “something borrowed” part of their wedding. It truly signify’s the ideal that Jeff had always carried in his heart about finding his true soul mate like his grandparents had. Andrea, being more thoughtful, explained, that they have a special kind of connection that is hard to find. Their first dance tells of the feelings that Andrea expressed about Jeff. Who I am With You by Chris Young was that song. “Jeff brings out the best in me and I in him. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.”
