Jacky and Matt's Wedding || Duftbräu || Samerberg, Germany

First off, this wedding was my first destination wedding outside of the New England area. Basically it set me up for wanting to do this all the time. Second, I actually know this couple very well as my boyfriend went to architecture school with the groom Matt. So even before the wedding day started, I knew this wedding would be special.

The day started off with a morning hike up to the top of the mountain next to the hotel where the wedding was being held called Duftbräu. I came back a little bit early from the hike to prep and then I was able to capture some location shots of this stunning location in the heart of Bavaria.

The getting ready process for both Jacky and Matt was super relaxed and fun, just like the two of them. Jacky’s sister did her makeup and a local hairdresser did her hair. Matt got ready with his two brother Malcolm and Charlie, and the start of the day was just peaceful.

Following the getting ready process, all of the guests got together in the pavilion on the hotel’s property to wait for Matt and Jacky. In one of the most unique and fitting entrances, the bridal party and Jacky walked in to the song “Life on Mars’ by David Bowie. The ceremony had readings done by Matt’s brothers, and Jacky’s twin sister Jenny (one reading in English and one in German). One of the most interesting moments was when Jacky’s mother Therese talked about the rings that Jacky and Matt were exchanging. These rings were fused of a new ring, and a ring that was passed down in Jacky’s family. Her grandfather smuggled this ring in his underwear to propose to his wife. These rings were such a beautiful symbol of how the wedding day ties together to past, present, and future.

After a beautiful exchanging of vows, and plenty of cheers, these two were officially announce married. We grabbed some family and friend group portraits outside with the rolling hills in the background and then we walked off for Jacky and Matt to have a little time to themselves (with me tagging along taking photos of course). We walked down the road where it was just local farms and then to the other side was the mountains. It seemed like there was just no way to capture a bad photo because the background was just stunning. I asked if the two of them wanted to exchange a dance and tried to put on some romantic music, and of course what decided to play instead was DMX’s “Ruff Ryders.” We all had a good laugh after that one.

The sun was setting and the guests started heading into the reception room. There were so many fun moments surrounding dinner including speeches, a slideshow of Jacky and Matt through the years, and finally concluding with a game. The game consisted of their friends holding up a sign that described a certain group of people, for example all people with glasses, to stand up. Matt and Jacky then had to guess what the similarity was in the group. From each correct guess they earned a puzzle piece, and the finished puzzle led them to special gift from their family and friends.

It was such a beautiful day and I couldn’t have asked for a kinder, and more beautiful wedding to be my first destination wedding. Congratulations again Jacky and Matt, it was such a wonderful day!

Stacey and Travis' Wedding || Kirkbrae Country Club || Lincoln, RI

Stacey and Travis’ wedding day was filled with love and tons of family traditions. Their day started with Stacey’s family and friends helping her get ready with the most beautiful set up. There were balloons and decor celebrating their wedding day and getting her excited for all that was to come.

One of the first things that happened that day was the exchanging of gifts. Stacey opened a few gifts from Travis, including a garter that had a Lily Pulitzer look to it. Travis opened a few gifts from Stacey including a few items celebrating their wedding date.

Perhaps the absolute cutest thing I saw that day was that Stacey and Travis exchanged notes back and forth from their different hotel rooms. These two were just so excited to see each other and be around each other in any way they could that day. This led to the most interesting first look that I have done so far. Stacey really wanted to see Travis before she walked down the aisle to calm her nerves but Travis really wanted that moment. So we had Travis blindfolded so that Stacey could see him but he wouldn’t see her before she walked down the aisle.

Stacey and Travis had a traditional catholic mass, and then after the recessional, they celebrated another family tradition. These two started their married life together by cutting a ribbon right outside the church to officially walk into their new married life together.

After the ceremony we grabbed some bridal party portraits in a local park and then headed over to start another special family tradition. Stacey and Travis stopped to take a photo at the exact same tree where her mom and dad took a photo on their wedding day. From there we went over to the reception site, Kirkbrae Country Club, for more photos and to start off their cocktail hour. This group of family and friends were having so much fun by the time we got there, and after a few quick photos on the golf course with Stacey and Travis, they joined the fun.

The intros were amazing and then Stacey and Travis started their first dance, which by the way was another favorite moment of mine. These two were adorable, and then the song changed into her parents’ wedding song and they shared the dance with the two of them. This is definitely what I loved about Stacey and Travis’ wedding day, incorporating so many different family traditions that made it into such a special day.

There were then some amazing speeches by the MOHs and Best Men, and then the fun dancing started off after dinner. Immediately the kids at the wedding started it off and then everyone else got onto the dance floor, kicking off Stacey and Travis’ marriage with an awesome celebration.

Congratulations again Stacey and Travis, it was such a fun and beautiful day!!

Megan and Dan's Wedding || The Gardens at Elm Bank, Massachusetts Horticultural Society || Wellesley, MA

I started off the day driving to one of the closest starts of the day that I’ve ever had. I reached the Blu Hotel in Newton to find Megan and her ladies getting ready in one of the most beautiful and colorful hotel rooms. We had so much natural light coming in, that it was a photographer’s dream. Shortly after arriving after grabbing images of the invitations, jewelry, shoes and other bridal details, Megan opened her wedding day gifts from Dan. These were the perfect gifts, and Megan cried opening them because she loved it so much. The first was a passport cover with her new initials on it and the second was a pearl necklace. The pearl necklace was really special because she had told Dan about how her mom got a pearl necklace from her dad on their wedding day, and it was beautiful that he honored that tradition in this way. Megan looked so classically beautiful when she put on her wedding dress, and in another special moment, she did a reveal with her dad. Her father was smiling for ear to ear and they both looked so joyously happy.

After this we all headed over to Elm Bank to do their first look. We were all set up with Dan in one of the gardens, and then it started to drizzle. We all got nervous for a second, but just a minute or two later it stopped. Megan came around the corner and tapped him on the shoulder. These two were so overjoyed seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. They were beaming and it was the kind of first look that makes me tear up with happiness. We walked around Elm Bank, taking photos in the Italianate Garden. One of the best moments was when they were practicing their first dance and Megan just kicked up her dress so they could do a spin. It made for one of the most beautiful photos, that basically looked like a fashion magazine ad.

A few minutes later their bridal party walks up cheering with excitement, and Megan and Dan got to see Desmond (their dog) for the first time that day. We had so much fun grabbing bridal party photos and then their families arrived for their photos. The family photos were so sweet, I didn’t even have to tell them to smile because both Megan and Dan’s families were all laughter and smiles. I could tell from just their bridal party and family portraits that this day was going to be amazing.

After wrapping up all of their family portraits, the bridal party hid away and we got settled in the Italianate Garden for the ceremony. Elm Bank truly created one of the most beautiful ceremony sites. While waiting for the bridal party to walk down the aisle, we heard lots of thunder in the distance but the storms stayed away and we even got some sunshine during the ceremony. It was such a beautiful ceremony filled with personal touches. Their vows were so lovely, and it basically made all of their family (and myself) tear up. After exchanging rings and sharing their first kiss as husband and wife, Megan and Dan were floating with happiness. One of my favorite images from their wedding day was right after they were married, they were so happy and being able to capture this made me ecstatic.

The weather kept up and there was sunshine throughout their cocktail hour, with guests playing games, drinking cocktails, and everyone enjoying seeing friends and family from near and far. After this fun and lively cocktail hour, I took Megan and Dan for a few sunset portraits. In Elm Bank we had so many awesome locations to take photos, we honestly ran out of time to get portraits in all of the places. We then headed inside to start the reception, and after some amazing intros Megan and Dan started their first dance to the song, “Dance with Me” by Phillip Phillips. It was so beautiful and I loved how excited all of their guests were for them. The reception then got started with a lovely speech from Megan’s dad which highlighted how much he loves Megan and how close Dan and Megan’s family are. We then were treated to speeches that were both equally sweet and hilarious from Megan’s sisters and Dan’s brother. The funniest part was with Dan’s brother’s speech starting off about how Dan and him were kind of close before but became really close when they spent the night in the same bed in Vegas. I absolutely loved their speeches, it showed how close Megan and her sisters are and how close Dan and his brother are now. You could definitely tell how well they know each other and how happy they were seeing their sibling getting married.

After the dinner wrapped up, Megan and Dan cut their wedding cake and then launched into their parent dances. Both dances were so sweet and I loved their song selections. The parent dances started off the dancing, and then they did an anniversary dance where by the way this group had some of the longest anniversaries. It took a while to eliminate couples because there were so many who had been together 30+ years. After this game, the fun dancing portion of the night started and this group was killing it. Everyone was up for dancing the night away. It was such an awesome ending to the evening, and such a beautiful day. Congratulations again Megan and Dan, it was such a beautiful day for sweet and lovely couple.

Maria and Kevin's Wedding || Stow, MA

Leading up to Maria and Kevin’s wedding we weren’t sure if the weather was going to cooperate or not, it was raining off and on all morning. So we really had no idea what the weather had in store for us. I came in to Maria’s family’s home to all of her bridesmaids and family so excited for the day. There was a ton of laughter and make up being done. After grabbing detail photos of her gorgeous shoes, I moved on to the her veil. This veil is incredibly special, as it is the veil that all of the women in her family wear. As you can see in the images below, this veil has the wedding date of each woman who has worn it sewn in a different color (one of the their wedding colors as well). This was such a beautiful heirloom that I had to grab several images of this. After a flurry of activity and a lot of laughter with her sisters getting Maria into her dress, we left for the church (which was right down the road).

Although it was a bit warm in the church that day, the ceremony was lovely and finished with Maria and Kevin grinning from ear to ear. You can see how happy they were immediately upon getting married and in the few quick photos we got right outside of the church. From there we headed over to the Wayside Inn Grist Mill, and though we weren’t expecting it, the sun actually came out. So we were able to grab some fun photos with their big bridal party around this beautiful area. After we finished with the bridal party we did some couple portraits of these two, and I just loved how Kevin kept making Maria laugh during portraits, it was so true to their relationship and show how at ease they are around each other.

When we got to their wedding reception venue, the sun was still out and we were able to get some sweet photos with their family and shortly after getting inside, it started down-pouring. We could not have planned it better if we tried. After intros, Maria and Kevin had a sweet first dance complete with tons of dramatics dips and twirls. We then were treated to a sweet and funny speech by Maria’s sisters and then one of the funniest best man speeches. Kevin’s best man, Adam, had given Maria and Kevin a questionnaire to fill out before the wedding day and each did not know what the other had written down. It was so hilarious to see how varied their answers were. The best one was a description of their best case scenario for traveling, in which Maria’s answer was a lot of planning and getting to the airport early, and Kevin’s answer was in packing the morning of and getting to the airport right before the flight. Though these two had different answers, his best man had the best way of wrapping up the speech by saying these two compromise better than anyone he knows and that’s how they work so well as a couple.

After these beautiful speeches, we got lucky and the downpour let up a little bit and we were able to get outside for a few sunset portraits, and in the best turn of weather we actually had a rainbow come out during their sunset portraits. I feel like it was such a sign for the day, a beautiful symbol for this beautiful and happy couple. Congratulations again Maria and Kevin, I absolutely loved working with you two!!

Joe and Gordon's Wedding || Cranston, RI

I had been talking with Joe and Gordon over emails for a little over a year before their wedding day. Since these two were planning from afar in California, we hadn’t been able to meet until their wedding day. All of the phone calls and emails made me feel like I knew them but it was so nice to meet them in-person.

It was an extremely hot day, I believe it was the first 90 plus degree day of the season. So it was nice that they were getting ready in the cool AC in the NYLO Hotel in Warwick, RI. Their wedding day started with me photographing Joe and Gordon separately with their respective wedding attendants in each room. It was filled with so much laughter and emotion, and was the perfect start to the day. A surprise that they had for all of their guests was that though the wedding attire was black and white for all of the guests, the two grooms each had stunning colorful jackets.

Each accessory that the men had for their wedding day had a story behind it, and brought in all of their loved ones (both present and those who had passed on). There were several emotionally charged moments including when the two best men helped Gordon put on cufflinks, which were made of photos of their friends who had passed on. One of my favorite moments of the day was when Joe and Gordon had their first look. They were both so overjoyed to see each other and the moment almost made me cry because it was so sweet.

After their first look there were lots of cheers with champagne, bridal party photos that mimicked the movie “Bridesmaids,” and lots of hugs. From there we went over to their ceremony and reception site Rhodes on the Pawtuxet. Their ceremony room was stunningly decorated with florals and candles everywhere. Once there, after everyone got their boutonnieres and bouquets we did a few more bridal party portraits and family portraits. It was really nice, we got all of the group portraits done before the ceremony so that during cocktail hour these two could just enjoy and be there with their guests.

The ceremony was joyful and emotion-filled. Their friend Curtis read a passage from the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, and their friend Jennie read another passage on love. A tradition of passing the ring around to all of the guests took place, they also described the rings and why they had picked those ones. There was a ring for the past, a ring for the present, and a ring for the future. These rings encompassed all of their love story which I thought was incredibly powerful. There were touching stories, and beautiful vows spoken by Joe and Gordon, it was such a emotional and beautiful ceremony that definitely made me cry.

After the ceremony Joe and Gordon got to celebrate with all of their guests at cocktail hour, and then that led into the absolutely gorgeous reception. Their reception room was decorated impeccably and witnessing their reactions when they saw the room all set up was incredible. Introductions took place, and then Joe and Gordon shared their first dance to an acoustic version of the song, “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry.

The night continued with beautiful toasts by the Best Men, “NAMES,” and Maid of Honor, “NAME” that highlighted how beautiful their friendships are with these three and how much these two grooms mean to their friends. Again, I almost cried. After the meals were served, there was a sweet dance with Joe and his mom to the song, “The Perfect Fan,” and an emotional dance with Gordon and his sister to the song, “Hero.”

After a cake cutting, the fun began. These two came prepared for the dancing portion of the reception with baskets of glow sticks, greenery wreaths, and more for guests to use for dancing. DJ Valentina totally killed it with amazing songs, and almost everyone there was up on the dance floor. It was one of those wedding receptions that I totally wished I was a guest for, because I had so much fun photographing all the dancing and everyone was just having so much fun. Congratulations again to this amazingly sweet and kind couple, I am so happy to have been a part of your wedding day!!

Nansis and Alex's Wedding || Providence, RI

I arrived at the Biltmore Hotel in mid-June to meet Nansis and her ladies to a tiny bit of drama. One of the flower girls had just dislocated her arm. It wouldn’t be a wedding if something didn’t go wrong. I assured Nansis that things like this always happen and the whole crew of her family and friends were amazing with assuring her niece that she would be all right. Despite her arm being dislocated, after a quick trip to Urgent Care, the flower girl was in amazing spirits the rest of the day.

The ladies had so much fun helping Nansis get into her dress with her mom doing the final buttons. Since we started the day at the Biltmore, we had to stop on their grand staircase for a few photos. Seriously how gorgeous is this old school staircase?!

The church where Nansis and Alex got married was incredible, one of the largest churches I feel like I’ve been to in the New England area. They had a traditional catholic mass and their mothers got to have a special part in the ceremony.

Since we were in Providence, the perfect place for some family and bridal party portraits was obviously the Rhode Island state house building. If you haven’t been there it’s a gorgeous, white marble building that is a historic stunning feature of Providence. The ladies and men in the bridal party had so much fun with bridal party portraits, and we got some pretty funny images of the guys.

From there we headed to Alex’s parents house in East Greenwich, RI for the perfect backyard tent reception. After a hilarious introduction of the bridal party that included the flower girl taking a seat right before Nansis and Alex were introduced, they did their first dance together. These two definitely had style and ended their dance with Alex picking up Nansis. The maid of honor, Mirin, killed it with her speech. She started with a memorized speech in Spanish and then had to get out her note cards for the English portion of the speech that was equally awesome. After that Alex’s brother, Gabriel, gave an amazing speech with lots of anecdotes from growing up with Alex and Alex’s mom, Lee, finished off the speeches with a speech talking about Alex’s risk taking while growing up and praising Nansis for being the perfect fit for him.

After some amazing parent dances, their family and friends danced the night away with almost everyone out on the dance floor for every song. It was one of those days that flashed by so quickly because I was having so much fun. Congratulations again Nansis and Alex, you two are so sweet and I know you will have an amazing life together!!

Lizzy and Shane's Brewery Wedding || Portsmouth, NH

I met Lizzy and Shane a little over two years ago at a coffee shop in Davis Square. I actually knew Lizzy because she was a friend of my friend Pietra’s in college at Boston University. After meeting these two, I knew it would be such a good fit. After their engagement session at Fenway Park last year (almost a year to their wedding day), I really felt like these two were just like friends of mine. We had been planning for a while and it was so crazy to see their wedding plans come to life.

I started off the day at the hotel with Lizzy and her bridesmaids, when I came in they were already done with hair and makeup and just hanging out and having fun in their matching flannel shirts (complete with monograms for each lady). What I loved was that this set the tone for the day, it was a very relaxed start to the day with everyone just having fun being around each other. I photographed details like Lizzy’s jewelry, invitations, and incredibly amazing sparkly red shoes. We were all just chatting and having fun, and the ladies were having a good time getting ready. There were some really sweet moments between Lizzy and her mom while she got into her wedding dress, and then we left for Lizzy and Shane’s first look.

We were so lucky that there was this beautiful large tree across from the brewery and we had Shane waiting there for Lizzy. When Lizzy and Shane saw each other for the first time, they both were grinning ear to ear. Lizzy showed off her awesome shoes, the two of them did some practice dancing, and then we went inside to grab a few photos by the bar. These two picked the perfect place for their wedding. As beer aficionados, Red Hook Brewery (now Cisco Brewery), was a perfect choice for them. They actually went there a lot before they even picked it as their wedding venue. So we had to get a few photos inside at the bar with some of their amazing beer.

Their wedding ceremony started with tons of smiles and excitement. I absolutely loved that I was able to capture a photo of Shane the moment he saw Lizzy walking down the aisle. You can just see all of the joy in his face, and likewise how happy Lizzy was seeing him. Their friend, Becca, officiated the ceremony that was again the perfect fit for the two of them. One of my favorite parts was their personal vows and then their sharing of a new creation of beer. The beer they created was a mix of one beer that Shane liked and a cider that Lizzy liked, they each took a swig and that represented their new married life together. They sealed the ceremony with a kiss, and started off their walk back down the aisle beaming as a newly married couple. Their cocktail hour had lots of competition in cornhole games, frisby games, and the music of their DJ/Band combo playing traditional Irish music. The introduction of the bridal party was so much fun, with each person dancing their way onto the dance floor and then starting off Lizzy and Shane’s first dance. Shortly after this were the speeches, which had everyone crying with laughter. The best man, Matt, and matron of honor (and Lizzy's sister), Rachael, absolutely killed it and had everyone in stitches.

Lizzy and Shane cut their cake, and (I’m really glad) did not smash it into each other’s faces. After this Lizzy and her dad started off their father-daughter dance, which I was so jazzed about because it was “Edelweiss” from “The Sound of Music.” Lizzy told me that this was a natural pick for their dance because she had a music box growing up that played that song. Shane and his mom also killed it dancing to the song “If Not For You” and they both had so much fun dancing during that song.

After this we snuck Lizzy and Shane out for a few sunset photos, which we got lucky because there was a field across from the brewery that was a beautiful backdrop for photos. When we got back, the dancing was in full swing. There were tons of Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC songs being played, giving me a flashback to growing up. Lizzy and her friend Lisa did an awesome dance to the song “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire and all of the guests danced into the night. It was such a fun wedding, and it was so perfect for these two, it absolutely fit who they are and what they love. Such an amazing day, and these two were so much fun to work with. Congratulations again Lizzy and Shane, this was such a great day to be a part of and I now want more weddings at breweries because this was a blast!

Katherine and James' Cape Cod Wedding || Sandwich, MA

It was a muggy morning in the beginning of June when I was heading to my first Cape wedding of the season. I will say I’m definitely a bit biased towards Cape weddings because I personally just love being there. No matter where you go on the Cape it’s usually beautiful. When I first got there, I met Katherine for the first time in-person while she was getting her makeup done. The first thing you feel with Katherine is a genuine warmth and kindness. She kept making sure all of her friends were having fun and kept playing with the adorable dogs that were keeping everyone company that morning. A few of my favorite photos from the day are definitely the photos with her and the dogs.

From getting ready we went to the venue, Heritage Gardens and Museum, to do Katherine and James’ first look. By the way, this venue is absolutely stunning. Just beautiful greenery and flowers everyone. I think everywhere we went that day was just seriously stunning. For their first look we had to hide Katherine away in the woods, and then got James in place. When they saw each other for the first time that day, I have never seen a bigger smile than that on James’ face. He was absolutely ecstatic to see Katherine in her wedding dress and the two of them just shared sweet moments together.

Their first look ended by hearing some screams from a golf cart nearby and seeing their bridal party heading over to this carousel on the venue’s property. By far one of the cooler things I’ve seen on a wedding day. This entertaining bridal party had so much fun on the carousel and then again during the photos outside.

When we were heading over to the ceremony site, I was completely in awe of the ceremony site. It was in a beautiful open field with this metal sculptural fountain behind them. They started their ceremony with audio from the movie “The Princess Bride,” you know the one, the one about marriage that was completely apt for their wedding day. The whole ceremony was so personal and true to them. Katherine’s aunt, started reading an advice for marriage quote and then several friends and family stood up from their seats to each read a piece of advice. One of my favorite parts was when the two of them read their own personal vows. I feel like this ceremony really was a peek into who these two are, and their beautiful relationship. After a kiss and huge cheers from the audience, we quickly grabbed family portraits before it started to rain.

Their cocktail hour was filled with drinks, lawn games, photos in the classic cars (located in the auto museum at the venue) and fun. Their bridal party had an awesome entrance and then everyone was treated to some absolutely beautiful speeches by the Best Man (James’ older brother) and Maid of Honor. I will say that the Best Man speech really got me, he was so emotional talking about how much his brother means to him and how much he loves the two of them. It was definitely one of the best speeches I’ve heard from a Best Man.

After the dinner came the dancing, and because they practiced in front of me during sunset photos, I knew that Katherine and James’ first dance was going to be absolutely amazing. These two choreographed a dance and absolutely killed it, everyone was screaming with excitement. To top it off, Katherine and her dad also did a special dance to a mix of songs. That kicked off the dancing for the evening and then everyone danced the night away. It was such a fun, perfect wedding to kick off all of my June weddings. These two are such seriously kind and sweet souls, and I am so happy to have been a part of their wedding day. Congratulations again you two!
