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!

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:)
