Terry & Casey: Married!

Casey and Terry’s wedding day was a visual masterpiece. From the start of the day at Good Harbor Beach where the sun was out in all its glory, to my drive along the eastern point of Gloucester, and finally pulling up to the most beautiful private estate overlooking the rocky shores of the Atlantic Coast. When I met Casey and Terry about a year ago, I knew their plans were anything but ordinary. However, the truly special nature of this wedding day is something that you have to see to believe. There were so many personal elements that stood out. A custom dress for dog Blue, centerpieces that were hand-made by Terry using wood chopped down during a Stowe vacation, a surprise acoustic performance, and finally a sparkler exit that lit the dark. The weather also seemed to put on a show. As the ceremony began, a dense fog rolled in. The result was a romantic mist that simply highlighted the nature of the day. Perhaps the most noticeable element was the love between Casey and Terry. These two are giddy when they are together and I have no doubt that this is the first of many happy moments to come. Congratulations Casey and Terry and enjoy your sneak peek!

John & Heather: Married!

This blog feels like so much more than a little sneak peek. How do you fit, into one small paragraph, all the words that appropriately explain the emotions behind a celebration as beautiful as John and Heathers? I guess we can start at the beginning. Almost eight years ago when I moved to a new town, chose a new hair salon, and met Heather. Little did I know back then that the sweet young girl behind my chair would become a friend to talk to on a monthly basis. We would chat about “a new guy…nothing serious” and then later, “ok, ya I guess it’s serious” until finally, John and Heather were engaged. Heather would explain all of her plans for a stylish, bohemian wedding at the Bedford Village Inn, all the while smiling from ear to ear. When the day arrived, nothing could have prepared me for just how magical each and every detail would be. Not just the flowers and flower crowns, mix and match bridesmaid dresses, or Heather’s stunning blush wedding dress. To me, it all culminated when John and Heather locked eyes for the first time and all their nerves washed away…replaced with joy for the rest of the evening. To say this wedding was an honor to photograph sounds like such an understatement. John and Heather…you are the real deal. Everyone around you can sense just how happy you make each other, and that happiness becomes contagious. Always remember how you felt on your wedding day and look back at these pictures for proof. I wish you nothing but the best and can’t wait to see what lies ahead! Cheers to a lifetime together!!

Patrick & Kim: Married!

Sometimes, I think the best relationships are the ones where two people are friends first. This is definitely the case with Kim and Patrick. They perhaps define what it means to stay together through thick and thin, celebrating the joys and weathering the storms as team. To highlight this point, let’s just say that these two High School sweethearts have prom pictures to prove their devotion. Kim and Patrick were married on a gorgeous day at the Atlantica in Cohasset. Their day truly felt like a culmination of sorts for both families, a celebration of a love over a decade in the making. Kim and Patrick…I wish you continued joy as you start the next chapter of your story. Congratulations!!

Brendan & Emily: Married!

A wedding day is something that is planned for months, sometimes years…where every last little detail is considered and stressed over to make sure everything is perfect. Emily and Brendan’s day was certainly one where all the pieces were simply stunning. The flowers, the dress, the colors, the ballroom all set up and glowing at The Roger’s Williams casino. But this is not what sticks out in my mind. The aspect that I will remember for a long time to come is the excitement Emily and Brendan felt to be married. The joy that radiated from their faces during a full mass at Providence College, where a sacred Sacrament was received. I believe that Emily and Brendan feel the importance of this next step as a couple, and that is so very inspiring to all those who have the pleasure of knowing them. Nothing is going to shake this bond…not even a wedding dress that pops a button right before the ceremony!! Emily and Brendan….I am honored to share a small piece of your story and wish you continued joy throughout your married life!
