Wilbraham, MA / Wilbraham Country Club / Wedding Pino & Bethanne

What a beautiful day for a wedding this past Saturday.  The sky was blue with puffy cotton candy clouds, not a drop of rain in sight.  We experienced unbelievably gorgeous dry weather for an early August wedding.  We couldn’t have asked for a more spectacular day.  Pino & Beth joined hands and hearts at Saint Cecilia church in Wilbraham.  The church lifted in song and love for this intimate ceremony.  Pino and Beth enjoyed a wonderful gathering at The Wilbraham Country Club.  We got to even drive a few golf carts for our tour around the Tees.  Enjoy their images as they tell the story of this wonderful couples day.


Winter Wedding :: The Publick House, Sturbridge, MA :: Marcie & Chris


Marcie & Chris had originally wanted a camp ground wedding.  Unfortunately, the venue had a bit of a scheduling issue so they chose to settle on a rustic wedding in Sturbridge, MA in February.  I did have someone ask if they were planning  a February wedding at the camp ground.  That was a bit of a chuckle and no, it was scheduled for a warmer New England tempeture! Marcie & Chris traveled from Rhode Island to celebrate their union with family and friends.  Little did they expect their day to turn into a full blown snow storm. But the storm did not stop their enthusiasm.  It was so fun to have a couple want to photograph their wedding pictures while the snow was still falling. Falling, falling, falling:) We went outside on several occasions and I truly enjoyed every time we went out into the snow.  What a fabulous, kicked back couple.  I enjoyed every moment of their wedding day; the friends, the family, the snow…loved it all<3.  My congratulations to you both.  Enjoy the magic that the winter storm delivered to you on your wedding day.  I also wish you many, many years of blessings and continued happiness


Heather & Giles

I would like to begin my post with the wording I used for Heather & Gile’s sneak peek on facebook.

I keep hearing these words over and over in my head…Must have read them somewhere. They totally remind me of you both! …”Every once in a while your prince comes along and you are living your fairy tale” ….What a beautiful couple! So full of love & Friendship. You totally have what dreams are made of:)

It was such a spectacular day. A gorgeous location, just my style, Victorian furniture and coloring…lovely! And the weather, no one could have asked for better color and temperatures. Absolutely perfect. And did Heather look like a princess?  I will let you be the judge but I would have to say a 100% YES. And Giles, always the gentleman, on his wedding day, the handsomest Prince at The Yankee Pedlar.  Enjoy the happily ever after fairy tale wedding of this fabulous Couple.

Liz & Tony: Sixteen years to happily ever after!

What a wonderful story I have to share with my readers.  I met Liz on a beautiful spring day this past year.  I immediately felt a sense of connection with her and booked her wedding on the spot.  I couldn’t have been more thrilled.  The wedding was a beautiful affair with lots of fabulous family, food and friends.  My bride and groom couldn’t have been more radiant.  I asked Liz for a special blurb to add to her blog.  My heart melted with the beautiful words and story she sent to me.  I had asked her, ” why after sixteen years she chose to get married”.  Here is her response. Tony has been by my side through the good and tough times in my life, especially when I lost my parents. We are each others rock.  I decided years ago that marriage was not for me, but he managed to change my mind.  He placed my engagement ring around my little Chihuahua’s neck with a purple ribbon and I couldn’t say no! For better or worse we continue to love each other day after day. He has such a caring and gentle heart.  My soulmate for life…..Watch their wedding unfold as I take you on the journey to, happily ever after.
