What makes a wedding truly special is the gathering of people who have been a part of the couple’s journey. Maria and Matt’s wedding was no exception and the room full of people from all different parts of their lives was alive with energy. Their wedding at Tanglewood was heartwarming and full of love.
The day started out drizzly, but then the sun ended up peaking through! It was as if nature itself was celebrating the love story that was about to unfold. Their families and Paige’s best friend were the fortunate witnesses to this beautiful wedding. In an era of grand weddings, their choice to focus on intimacy was a refreshing and just perfect.
Hues of reds, oranges, and golds painted the backdrop for Allison and Brandon’s wedding at Tanglewood. A fall chill was in the air, but warm apple cider was served to guests – a comforting and inviting touch to the day. The lawn in front of Highwood filled up with all of Brandon and Allison’s favorite people right as the sun began to set.
Allie spent many summers on the Cape with her family and Skaket Beach holds a special place in their hearts. That’s why The Wequassett Resort & Golf Club provided the perfect setting for their special day, with its breathtaking views of Pleasant Bay. Ten years after that first date, their favorite people would make the trip to Cape Cod to witness Allie and Connor finally making their commitment official.
Do you have a crush on me, Matt Mitchell?”
Sometimes, all it takes is one courageous question to change the course of your life. For Sarah, it was a straightforward query to Matt Mitchell that set the wheels in motion for their love story. And YES, yes he did have a crush on Sarah. Love often leads us on unexpected journeys, for Matt, it meant moving across the state putting down roots in Sarah’s hometown here in the Berkshires.
Underneath a shimmering disco ball, friends and family gathered to celebrate the couple’s journey into marriage. Hailing from Washington, D.C., the couple shared a special connection with the band With Ford Bronco, a 90s cover band. Having the band perform at their wedding was a dream come true.
For Grace and Lachlan, their love story was woven right into the fabric of their childhood neighborhood. Living just houses apart, they navigated their adolescent years on Cliffwood Street before a chance meeting initiated by Grace’s father happened over “burger night” at nearby Firefly Pub.
Brian grew up visiting the Berkshires as a child and his fond memories of this area were quickly shared with Michelle. Soon it became one of their favorite places to visit. When they began the wedding planning process it became obvious that a wedding in the Berkshires was in their cards. They could share their vows with each other and share one of their favorite corners of the world with their friends and family.
Erica and Nic planned their wedding in just 5 months and it was wonderful to see that they had designed a day that was exactly what they wanted it to be. The celebration was held in two locations, including an intimate dinner with music, a happy hour before the ceremony and so many adorable couple portraits (even some in the rain).
We find such joy in the details and this day didn’t disappoint. Emilie’s hair clip was made from her mom’s veil and her grandmother’s dress. During their ceremony they each presented their moms with flowers before reading aloud written vows to each other. Their wedding party consisted of their siblings and the cutest flower girl (their niece). The sliding doors of the Linde Center were fully open giving everyone an incredible view of the mountains and sunset during toasts. A packed photo booth and an incredible fiber optic dance party was a great end to an unforgettable day.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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 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.
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 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.
