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!
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:)
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.
Welcome to Katie & Drew’s blog. I listened to a lot of wonderful comments made about this couple on the day of their marriage. But, I have to say, my impression of this couple began with our engagement session in Old Sturbridge Village this past spring. I met a couple who were kind, considerate, sensitive and genuinely happy. They have a beautiful spiritual connection which is evident in their rapore and mannerisms towards each other. I was blessed to experience their relationships with all the friends and family that they love on their very special day. I feel so humbled to have been a part of such a joyous occasion of two truly unique people. Katie and Drew, you two are what all marriages should be made of. I wish you much love and happiness in the coming years<3
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.”
Welcome to Pino & Bethanne’s engagements session. Bethanne grew up in this vacation home on Quacumquasit Lake in Sturbridge. She spent the summers of her youth in this wonderful location and now spends quality time with the man of her dreams in this same location. They enjoy kayaking, swimming and canoeing on South pond and love getting up in the morning to this view and their morning coffee on the deck. A totally relaxing way to start off your day if I do say so myself!
Welcome to Joanna & Ivan’s wedding blog. It is with great pleasure that I am able to write this blog so quickly after their wedding. I began as a film and slide photographer in the early years of my career which affords me the luxury of “getting it right in the camera”. My editing is already complete without spending countless hours in front of the computer. Phew, I would much rather be behind my camera working with my next client than in my office looking at a monitor. So, our story begins…. It was a beautiful day this past Saturday for a wedding. It was not too warm or humid which is a rare luxury for July in New England. The bride was beautiful and the groom so dashing. Their wedding sermon focused on love and respect for which this couple are truly a role model. The love and friendship they displayed towards their friends and family was evident in the images taken that day. I feel so very blessed to have been a small part of their spectacular day. Enjoy their love story and fairy tale wedding.
