A perfect storm of beauty, light and fun…plus lobster and S’mores!!!  If that sounds amazing to you, the you should be super jelly of the amazing wedding that Jackie and Erik threw last weekend at William Allen Farm in Pownal, ME.

Pownal, ME sounds like the name of the place where you would find a sleepy farm with a lovely white farmhouse, and a big red barn, and that’s EXACTLY what I found when I rolled into town.  As the crew set up the barn for one heck of a party, Jackie and her bridesmaids were already making the farm a little less sleepy with their joyous laughter in the bridal suite.  While they did the actual dressing, I visited the guys in the converted hayloft, then we got everyone in place for the first look.  Eric waited beside the old apple tree which bordered the small farm pond as Jackie made her way to him.  Reunited, the soon to be married couple made their way back to the barn for a few family photos, then got ready for the wedding!

As the guests arrived in big yellow school busses, the farm became remarkably less sleepy as the sound of laughter traveled over the rolling green hills.  They gathered in the shade of lovely tree, and Jackie and Eric made it official.  The walked down the aisle hand in hand, then spent their first few minutes as husband and wife gamely hiking through the big north woods that bordered the property.  Picture time over, there was nothing left to do but turn the volume up to 10, and make sure that the cows three fields away were dancing in celebration.  And that’s just what they did!

This weekend I had the awesome opportunity to return to the New England Aquarium to photograph the awesome lunch date wedding of Krysta and Sean. Lunch date wedding, you ask…never heard of it…well that’s because, to the best of my knowledge, Krysta and Sean invented it. And it’s an awesome concept…let me describe it for you.

I arrived just as the family started to gather for formal group photos on the walkway overloking the water. Krysta and Sean had organized well, with the help of the always amazing Tasks @ Bey, and it didn’t take long to bang through the list. Then Krysta, Sean, and I headed into the aquarium for a few photos of the couple. While we were there, the guests arrived, were ushered into the tent, and instructed to grab a plate, and head through the buffet. When the three of us arrived back at the tent, everyone was seated and eating lunch, as the happy couple walked right onto the dance floor. In a ceremony that packed a whole lot of love (and brisket) into 5 minutes, Krysta and Sean became official, and sat right down to their own lunches as their closest friends began to toast them. By the time the toasts were over, everyone was ready to dance…and dance they did…tearing up the dance floor in celebration of the just married!

Part two of my amazing wedding weekend found me on a beautiful sandy beach in Gloucester MA with two high school sweethearts who happened to both be awarded “Best Smile” their senior year.  Seriously, could anyone have handed me an easier job than the wedding of Hannah and Kyle?

Arriving at the elegant Beauport Hotel in Gloucester, MA, I wasted no time heading up to Hannah’s oceanside room where her award winning smile was already on display, only disappearing when it was time to put on lipstick!  The mood was just as jovial down in Kyle’s room, where he had a little help tying the perfect full windsor knot, and donning his jacket.  Back up to Hannah’s just in time for her to step into her dress, and take a few bridal portraits.  Heading down to the oceanside deck where the ceremony was bing prepared, Hannah and Kyle had a moment together before the three of us took a walk around the block for some couple’s portraits.  The Beaumont was nestled among a bunch of old fishing warehouses that provided a plethora of interesting locations within a short walk of the hotel.

With all of the portraits out of the way, Hannah and Kyle were free to participate in the entire event, and participate they did!  The ceremony took place on an oceanside deck, with the Atlantic Ocean witnessing the vastness of their love, on one side, and all of their closest friends and family witnessing it on the other.  The celebration never ended as they enjoyed the cocktail hour with their guests, then headed into the ballroom, where their smiles infested the entire room, and their dance moves kept the crowd moving all night!

What a weekedn to get married,  and I was fortunate enough to get to photograph two amazing couples as they pledged their lives to one another!  First up was a wedding close to home, as I photographed the marriage of Jennifer and Peter at St Mary’s Church in Shrewsbury, followed by their super fun reception at the Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston, MA.

I started with the ladies at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester, MA, where they wore lovely silk kimonos as they took turns in the hair and makeup chairs.  Since they all looked amazing naturally, it didn’t take long before they were in their dresses and ready to ride the classic silver Rolls Royce to the church. Peter was already there, waiting for his bride, and with smiles all around, she walked from the car and right down the aisle to meet him.  A beautiful mass joined them together, and they strode arm in arm to toast their newly formed family in the back seat of the elegant ride.

It only took a few minutes for them to be transported to the Wachusett Country Club, where the rolling green hills awaited their portrait session.  After taking advantage of the lush surroundings to capture them with their family, we headed inside for the dancing.  Those two could really cut a rug, dazzling the room with their moves and their smiles.  The rest of the evening was just as fun, with emotional speeches, delicious food, and more dancing!

The second half of my double header weekend found me close to home…5 minutes in fact…as I photographed the beautiful wedding of Danielle and Marc at St James Church in Grafton, MA and reception at Blissful Meadows in Uxbridge MA.

I began with Marc and his guys as they got ready at his childhood home in Grafton, then I popped over to hang out with the ladies.  The excitement was high in both houses, as everyone cleaned up and beautified for the big event.  Soon enough the girls were rocking their gowns and kick butt cowboy boots and climbing into the limo for the short drive to the church.  Once there, Danielle’s father escorted her down the aisle and into the waiting arms of Marc.  It was a beautiful mass, with Danielle and Marc beaming through the entire thing.  Those smiles never left their faces they walked down the aisle successfully married!

We headed right to Blissful Meadow, where we wasted no time taking advantage of all of the old farm equipment, climbing on an antique tractor, and recreating a famous Kenny Chesney song.  Wandering the amazing grounds, we took advantage of all of the cool old buildings and lovely gardens before making our way to the rest of the family for photos.  Then it was time to party, with Danielle and Marc starting the celebration right, with an awesomely choreographed country dance that showed off Danielle’s fabulous boots.  With the tone properly set, the rest of the evening was all smiles and laughter, and eating and drinking and dancing.  In short…perfect!

I have been photographing weddings for 14 years now, hundreds and hundreds of best days ever all over the world, but in all those weddings, no one has ever died.  Until this weekend.  Before he had a chance to present the bride and groom as husband and wife, the officiant was MURDERED…and the wedding party was escorted out of the ceremony in handcuffs in front of the stunned guests who had gathered at the Omni Parker House in Boston to witness the nuptials of Alessandra and Kevin.

If this sounds all very dramatic, it fit this couple to a T.  I arrived in proper attire for this 1940’s themed noir wedding, and found all of the bridesmaids being made into starlets from the golden age of Hollywood, with beautiful hairstyles and classic movie star makeup.  Moving up to the bridal suite, we took some time for a fun pinup inspired photoshoot before Alessandra stepped into the beautiful, scarlet accented gown and the role of a lifetime.  Back down to the press room, the ceremony went off without a hitch, with the bride and groom reading their own vows, while the crowd smiled, laughed and cried with them.  Without a hitch, that is, until the officiant suddenly keeled over dead.   Luckily a detective arrived in record time, determined to get to the bottom of the shenanigans, and declaring everyone in the room a suspect.  That’s when the wedding party was led out in cuffs.

Throughout the reception, the intrepid detective worked the case, with the help of the deceased’s twin brother, a reporter from the Boston Globe, and all of the assembled guests (who had clues to the crime at each of their tables).  In between there was time for dancing and toasts, and food and drink and plenty of celebration!  The crowd wasn’t going to let a little thing like a murder get in the way of Alessandra and Kevin’s special day.  By the end of the night, justice was served, the culprit was captured, and Alessandra and Kevin were declared married!  It was a perfect Hollywood wedding with a perfect Hollywood ending!

This weekend I got to kick off the 2017 wedding season in style, when I joined Lisa and Jeff, along with the rest of their families, in the elegant rooftop ballroom of the historic Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston MA.

But before we could get to the flag waving, Canadian beer hoisting, sing-along-with-the-band party that was the reception, everyone had to get dressed to the nines, including, hair, makeup and beautiful dressed for the ladies.  Everything ran like clockwork, and before we knew it, I was escorting Lisa up to the rooftop terrace for a few moments alone with her betrothed before the ceremony. We were shortly joined by all of their closest friends and family for photos in the fireside room, then it was down to lovely, wood-paneled room, where Lisa and Jeff pledged their lifetime commitment.

I escaped with the new Mr and Mrs for a few photos at the old city hall across the street, then we all headed upstairs to join the party.  Lisa and Jeff started the show, dancing their first dance on the same dance floor that her parents had at their wedding years before.  I wasn’t there to witness her parents’ wedding, but I’m sure Lisa and Jeff did them proud with the love and laughter and fun that was had by all the entire night!

At one point during Mandy and David’s wedding celebration, the skies opened up and the rain came down in buckets…flash floods were reported all over the region…but the celebrants in the tent were warm and dry and dancing their hearts out. While a few brave guests took the dance party into the courtyard, dancing in the rain with huge smiles on their faces. Yeah, that’s the kind of fun, amazing wedding it was at Willowdale Estate in Topsfield MA.

The rain hadn’t started yet when I arrived. I captured Mandy and her bridesmaids getting ready, and even ducked into the Groom’s suite for a few photos of the guys getting ready. And only a few sprinkles were falling, when Mandy and David vowed their lifelong commitment. And it was dry as a bone, when I walked down to the river for a few portraits with the newly married couple. It wasn’t until everyone was under cover, enjoying food and drink and celebration that the heavens opened up, and by that time the only ones who got wet were the ones that wanted to. Wet or dry, however, everyone had a great time celebrating Mandy and David’s beautiful wedding!

I never saw Katherine with any other expression than a big, happy smile on her face during the entirety of her and Einar’s amazing, rainy, wedding day at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd and the Radisson Hotel in Nashua, NH.

We jumped into family photos as soon as I arrived at the Radisson.  Katherine and Einar had a more traditional sensibility, and the antique chairs in the photo room made for a perfect studio set as we captured all of their friends and family together.  We even had a chance to sneak the happy soon-to-be-wed couple out into the lobby, where the beautiful stone fireplace and arched brick hall provided the backdrop.  Then it was off to the church, which was quickly filled with friends and family ready to witness their union.  In a ceremony with some of the most amazing music I have ever heard, Katherine and Einar became husband and wife.  Katherine even participated in the music, joining her brothers and playing the violin in a lovely string piece.  They exited the church holding hands and smiling lovingly at each other, while Einar shielded his new wife from the rain with an umbrella.  Back at the Radisson, we all gathered in the hall for dinner, toasts, and a cake cutting…followed by the moment that everyone was waiting for: the first dance.  Katherine and Einar had met at a contra dance event, and their love of dancing showed in their flawless first waltz as a married couple.   Then everyone else joned it, and I swore I was watching an episode of “Dancing with the Stars”, as the talented dancers tore up the floor all night!

Late August weddings can often be a little hot and uncomfortable…but not Colleen and Tyler’s!  They were blessed with a perfect day to celebrate their wedding at St Peter’s Church in Plymouth MA, and reception right across the street at the amazing, historic Plymouth Memorial Hall!

But before we could start the wedding, everyone involved had to get into their beautiful and dashing wedding outfits, so my day started with Colleen and her family at the home away from home that they had rented for the occasion.  Hair and makeup was just finishing when I arrived, so after making sure i got photos of all of the important details, the ladies (and a dad or two), jumped into their dresses and were ready for their turn in front of the camera.  Then it was off to the church, where Tyler and guests were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bride.  They were not disappointed as she seemed to glide down the aisle to take her beloved’s hand at the front of the church and say the words that would bond them for life.  Her smile was even bigger when she walked the other way down the aisle, and was mirrored by Tyler’s own.

Hopping into the waiting limousine, we took a shord drive down toe Christopher Columbus park, where Tyler had asked her the most important question of their lives.  We walked the bridge where she said, “Yes”, and wandered the park for a bit, before hopping back into the limo to take a few more photos at the jetty.  That was all the time we had for photos…we had a party to get to!  And the Plymouth Memorial Hall was just my kind of place!  The floor of the auditorium was beautifully decorated, with strings of lights casting a romantic glow over their first dance as husband and wife.  While the guests were eating, I did a little exploring with the couple, and found a couple of really cool nooks and crannies for a couple more portraits.  Then it was time to dance, with the lights dimming and the DJ kicking the music…and the fun…into high gear!
