This past Saturday I had the honor of photographing Seth and Grace’s wedding.  The day was full of sunshine, laughter, and love.  Before the wedding party came down the aisle, the bride and groom had created a slideshow of memories; it was so great to see everyone’s reactions to it.  Grace’s brother, Dan, preformed the ceremony…it was so sweet to have some one so close to the couple preform the ceremony.  The reception was a blast with a Michael Jackson reenactment, lots of dabbing, and a fun Horah.  They finished off the night with a sparkler sendoff.  Such a beautiful and love filled day!

When Alison from Alison Marie Photography and I were planning our workshop we had a certain theme in mind.  We wanted simple, romantic, light, and airy.  We wanted to use muted colors with the greenery trend.  Melissa from Parsimony Inspired made our vision come to life.  She ran with it and I was so blown away seeing what she came up with.  I loved the bold colors matched with muted greys and greens.  I also loved the hand dyed silk table runner and hombre cake backdrop.  Stacey from The Tangled Grapevine did such an amazing job.  She created the bouquet to look like a hand picked armful of wild flowers….my fave!!  The venue was Bloom Meadows, this place is seriously amazing.  With it’s shiplap walls, huge windows, and mountain views; it was the perfect Berkshires location for a wedding.  Kim Small from With Wild and Grace drew out a picture of the wedding venue for the invitations, how amazing is that?!  What a fantastic way to personalize your wedding invitation suite!  The dress was another thing that Alison and I knew we wanted to incorporate into this shoot, we fell in love with this Lilian West gown when we first saw it online.  In White Springfield was so amazing about letting us borrow it for the day.  The team from Kiss and Makeup created a soft romantic look for our bride model.  I loved the loose curls and soft makeup.  Pete from Pete’s Sweets worked his magic, and created us a beautiful cake.  He made the flowers by hand from sugar, he also created the look of kintsugi.  Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing something broken with gold, so that the broken piece can be more beautiful than before it was broken.  Love that!!  DMG Gallery provided the gorgeous jewelry, the wedding band set was designed by Megan Thorne and the moonstone earrings were by Pamela Froman.  Dmitry from Embark Films videoed the styled shoot, I can not wait to share his final video with you…he is absolutely amazing!  Zach and Lisa were our real life models, they are actually married and were so adorable together.  They killed it!  So enjoy the beauty that all these people worked so hard to create together!

I was so over the moon excited to take part in this styled shoot at Valley View Farms in Haydenville.  Valley View is a brand new barn wedding venue and I can not tell you how beautiful and vintage it is.  Sue thought of every detail when she designed this venue, from the custom bar to the gorgeous corrugated metal doors.  Jackie from Events by Jackie M. designed not one but two stunning tablescapes.  I love how she matched different colors and textures to create a romantic farm to table feel.  The dress was from Bridal Heirlooms, it was to die for.  I wanted to try it on, it was gorgeous with a beaded open back.  Our model, Julia looked amazing in it; it was like this dress was made for her.  Stacey from the Tangled Grapevine worked magic with florals, she even climbed up on a ladder and hung wreaths from the beams.  I absolutely loooove her work, she is my favorite florist!  She does things with flowers that I couldn’t even imagine.  Kelly and her team from That girl did a flawless job with the hair and makeup.  Michaela, from Jackson and Connor, came to the shoot and styled our groom.  She even hemmed his pants on site, she is amazing!  Michaels Rentals provided us with the awesome flatware and rentals, I absolutely adore their golden silverware….all the heart eyes!  Tiffany from Tiffany Chapman Photography was the main photographer, and I am so thankful for her friendship and that she invited me to take part in this amazing shoot!

I felt like Kayla and Pat’s wedding day was something out of a fairy tale.  When I first arrived at Kayla’s mom’s house for bride preparations, I was so excited to see rose petals lining the front walkway and cute signs out front of the door.  The fact that it was 50 degrees in the middle of February was amazing too!  Kayla and all of her bridesmaids were so relaxed and just enjoyed the morning and anticipated the ceremony.  Kayla and Pat’s first look was adorable, Pat even shed some tears….I love a dramatic reaction from a groom!

I had never done a ceremony at the Riverview before, just receptions.  But I loved the huge windows looking out over the river and the grand chandeliers.  The ceremony was short and sweet and then the awesome staff transformed the room into a gorgeous reception area.  I loved the purple centerpieces matched with the gold sequin table cloths.  Everything was stunning!

Kayla and Pat’s first dance was so special, I loved the way they looked at each other.  The night was full of dancing and laughter.

Congrats Pat and Kayla!
