CLAIRE AND CRAIG’S WEDDING AT THE MOUNT
Their ceremony of 65 people was perfectly nestled in the Italian Garden – (one of our favorite spots to photograph couples). Luscious greenery covering the stone walls could not be a more perfect ceremony location for Claire – a total plant lover. Claire’s bouquet was an incredible compilation of florals, greenery and amazing textures that she dreamed up. Craig added his own touch to their walk back down the aisle. The theme song Indian Jones echoed through the garden as they were introduced for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. (this made so many guests smile).
MARY AND DAVID’S ST. ANN WEDDING
The scent of lilacs filled the church as David waited to see his bride. He stood next to the priest, who also happened to be his brother and his face said it all when Mary made her appearance at the back of the church. Mary’s floral dress and vibrant bouquet were absolutely stunning as her godson walked her down the aisle.
JOSH AND SIVAN’S TANGLEWOOD WEDDING
I knew right away that they had a special connection and so much love for their family (and of course Miso, their dog). The love surrounding both Josh and Sivan was evident from the moment I walked in on the day of their wedding. I was so happy to see them again on such a perfect, sunny Berkshire day and finally get to meet their families.
NAOMI AND ALEX’S TANGLEWOOD WEDDING
The relentless downpour did not stop the most incredible party from immediately starting as soon as guests entered the clear top tent. They danced to James Taylor, such a fitting dance for a celebration at Tanglewood.
SARAH AND EUGENE’S NEW JERSEY WEDDING AT 618
I reconnected with Sarah after she and Eugene got engaged and I immediately recalled Sarah as the sweet teenager that used to help me at Loeb’s, a local market in my hometown of Lenox. Fun fact: Sarah was also one of my very first Berkshire Photo Booth attendants.
ALLIE AND MARCUS’ INTIMATE WEDDING AT 33 MAIN
Allie and Marcus’ wedding at 33 Main made me feel so lucky that I get to play the role that I do. This day was so near and dear to my heart. I could not be happier watching two great friends fall in love in the Berkshires, settle down here and then get married.
CAROLINE AND SCOTT’S HALF MOON JAMAICA WEDDING
TMP went to Jamaica! It was a perfect spot for Caroline and Scott to invite 60 of their closest friends and family to celebrate their marriage. I’m planning on saving a line that Caroline’s mom said during her welcome speech, but will change for when my sons are married. She said, “They say you marry off your daughters, but my girls weren’t raised like that.” – I really loved this!!
CHEYANNE AND RYAN’S BERKSHIRE HILLS COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING
Cheyanne wore heirloom rings in her dress and Ryan and his grooms people were accompanied but the cutest dog (in tuxes). I was so impressed with how willing Ryan and Cheyanne were to come outside in the cold with us for portraits (Lisa and I had on winter jackets). While the day was cold and windy, it ended with a sunset!
WINBROOKE STYLED SHOOT
When asked to be part of a styled shoot for the newest venue in the Berkshires I immediately said, “YES!” Located in Tyringham surrounded by breathtaking views, Winbrooke is certain to be one of our area’s most sought after venues. Grateful to collaborate with amazing wedding industry vendors on this shoot planned by Danecca & Co and Taylored and Thyme.
SARAH AND NATHAN’S COUNTRY CLUB OF PITTSFIELD WEDDING
Sarah and Nathan’s was beautiful and provided all the best vibes of the holiday season. There are not many years we get to photograph weddings so close to Christmas, and their wedding got everyone in a festive mood with all the holiday touches.
ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER: MOLLY AND JOSH’S GEDNEY FARM WEDDING
Molly and Josh’s late fall wedding at Gedney Farm was such a beautiful day. Jewel tones, huge smiles, pie, and lots and lots of laughing. Another sweet touch was the centerpieces sculpted by Josh’s grandfather. They were so unique and beautiful I couldn’t stop photographing them.
RACHEL AND ERICH’S VENFORT HALL MANSION WEDDING
Rachel and Erich chose to get ready in adjoining rooms. Rachel did her own makeup and they each opened a gift from the other. Erich joined her to button up the back of her dress, which was such an adorable part of the day. Erich would bustle her dress for her too later in the night. He didn’t see her from the front until they met outside for their first look.
KATIE AND MELANIE’S MOUNTAIN ROSE INN WEDDING
Meanie and Katie had so many parts of their day that were so genuine. First, when they saw each other for their first look, they actually traded bouquets because they each liked the others better. Next, their flower man stole the show. He really understood the assignment as he danced down the aisle tossing flowers. Lastly, Melanie’s mom and Katie’s mom were the officiants which made the whole ceremony extra emotional and special.
ANNA AND SCOTT’S TANGLEWOOD WEDDING
One of the most remarkable things for me personally about working with Anna and Scott was the feeling of kindness and trust they had for us immediately. It made everything easier and gave us more room for creativity throughout the day. Knowing that other couples are looking to these blogs for wedding inspiration, I thought I would share a few things that they told me the day after their wedding.
JULIA AND BRANDON’S KEMBLE INN WEDDING
Are you ready for some fun? You’ll smile when you look at these pictures from Julia’s and Brandon’s wedding day. There was lots of joy, great music by Andy Warba, Wanda Houston, Jay Shale, a highly anticipated walk down the aisle, an expertly performed first dance, a Crazefaze Crew dance routine and a traditional hora! Oh and I haven’t even mentioned, one of the best speeches I’ve heard.
AMANDA AND ALEXANDER’S WYNDHURST MANSION WEDDING
What a long time to wait but…. of all the dates to pick in 2022 I think they chose the perfect one. This past Saturday’s weather was the day you dream of in September and gave us the golden lighting that Lisa and I live for taking pictures of.
LAUREN AND JASON’S AUGUST MOON WEDDING
Their wedding had the vibe of end of summer nostalgia best celebrated with your favorite people. To make their friends and family feel welcome, Lauren and Jason included a casual brunch the morning of their wedding with a garden party feel. To follow was a formal ceremony among wild flowers and a mountain backdrop and then an intimate dinner.
ANDREA AND SAM’S WEDDING AT THE BARN AT LORD HOWE VALLEY
Lisa and I met Sam and Andrea in 2018 at her sister’s wedding. We were chatting with them in the photo booth and loved them instantly! We dropped the not so subtle hint that when they were to get engaged they should give us a call – we wanted to be the one to capture it. Three months later, I got that call! Sam had proposed to Andrea!
KIMBER AND WILL’S WEDDING AT THE MOUNT
For me, one of my favorite things to uncover is why my couples choose to have their wedding in the Berkshires. In Kimber and Will’s case it seems kismet that even though they met in Boston they both have childhood ties to this area. Kimber feels sentimental about Stockbridge where she spent summers as a kid and during those same years, Will was traveling to Tanglewood while his sister practiced with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
GREER & JARED’S COTTAGE FARM OF THE BERKSHIRES WEDDING
Greer and Jared’s wedding at Cottage Farm of the Berkshires was the very first wedding to happen at this brand new Berkshire venue. This space was once a working horse farm and was recently renovated to be an all inclusive wedding weekend spot.
REBECCA & MARIANNA’S MASS MOCA WEDDING
Marianna and Rebecca opted out of a first look and instead got ready together. Enjoying time together at Tourists Hotel before helping each other get into their gowns was really something special! The genuine kindness and support they showed each other the whole morning leading up to the ceremony was also special. They continually checked in on each other to make sure the other was okay. I love that about them
SHEILA & CARLTON’S CHURCH WEDDING
Sheila and Carlton’s wedding could not have been any cuter. These two sweethearts decided to tie the knot at age 80… what a love story! Their families, friends from church, and even Carlton’s Bridge buddies gathered for a small ceremony to witness the marriage.
MEGAN AND ANDREW’S BLOOM MEADOWS WEDDING
Megan and Andrew’s love of the outdoors was beautifully matched with the greenery that decorated the indoor ceremony space and the summer BBQ vibe of the cocktail hour and reception. It was such a special moment watching them enjoy their first look.
ASHLEY AND DYLAN’S CRICKET CREEK FARM WEDDING
There was a point during family portraits, when Ashley’s mom said, “This looks exactly like the inspiration photo she sent me years ago.” Marrying Dylan, her bridesmaids in red, the cow pasture in the distance, rolling mountains, and a bouquet of sunflowers and roses.
