Willowdale Estate Wedding

On a gorgeous June Saturday Eddie & Molly prepared for their wedding day at the charming Willowdale Estate. With the bridal suite overlooking the courtyard, Molly and her bridesmaid looked on with excitement as the courtyard was transformed into the ceremony area. The morning was filled with laughter and joyous anticipation for all that the day held ahead. It was the perfect way to start their amazing day and I’m thrilled to share more of their wedding with you here. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Crane Estate Wedding

Rachael & Matt chose the beautiful Crane Estate for their wedding earlier this fall. As the sun slowly set on the Grande Allée, surrounded by their family and friends, they said their vows. Guests sipped on cocktails and hot cider on the back porch as the candles lit the evening. Their bridal party were a vision in creams, blues and grays. It was their own version of a perfect fairytale…

Private Estate Wedding on Boston's North Shore

I knew from our initial meeting together that Jared & Willoughby were going to plan an incredible wedding day, beginning with the location for their celebration. Hosted on Willoughby's family farm, Jared & Will thoughtfully planned their wedding to emphasize and celebrate the beautiful location and the natural beauty that encompassed the area, something very important to them. They also wanted to ensure that their guests were given a meaningful and memorable experience. Working with the amazing team at Chive Events they pulled together a breathtaking celebration that focused on sustainable and locally sourced details. From the florals to the the food and even the wine served throughout the day, each detail was thoughtfully and carefully chosen for a specific reason. 

That is the kind of people Jared & Willoughby are. A couple who are independent and unique in their own right and together bring a sense of purpose and authenticity to whatever situation they are in. I greatly appreciated the thought and care they placed on their wedding day and how they communicated to their guests what this day meant to them as a couple. It was a day to celebrate and bring together their families and loved ones and honor their respective family heritage. 

For example, Willoughby wore a family heirloom, her wedding gown. She was the 12th Bride to wear the beautiful gown that has been passed down through the generations from the 19th century. Jared excitedly and ceremoniously cut the wedding cake with a family sword. Willoughby's parents hosted the event on their farm, a piece of property that has been in the family for generations. How meaningful to have so many pieces of family history!!

Willoughby & Jared, thank you for entrusting us to document this special day -- it was incredible!! Enjoy some of my favorite images!!

Summer Wedding at Misselwood Estate at Endicott College

Lauren & Mike had a quintessential New England summer day for their wedding at Misselwood Estate earlier this month. Not a cloud in the sky with a cool breeze that drifted off the water's edge. Lauren and Mike had planned their wedding from Virginia and with the help of Lauren's Mom, every detail came together perfectly on the day of their wedding.

Misselwood Estate is a special place - tucked away on the coast of Beverly it offers spectacular views of Beverly and Salem Harbor and the coastline of Marblehead. For these two, the ocean plays a big part in their relationship and lives (they even named their dog Salty, love it!), so being right on the water was the perfect setting for their wedding. Plus it was a wonderful introduction to New England for their out of state guests. 

Lauren & Mike, thank you for inviting my team to be a part of your incredible day. We loved celebrating with you and your loved ones and I hope that these images will serve as precious memories to you in the years to come!! Enjoy some of my favorites!!

Estate at Moraine Farm Wedding | Jenny & Bradley

Jenny & Bradley desired to throw a garden inspired wedding day full of whimsical charm. From the hand made "bunny garden" that held their escort cards to their palette of light blue and pink pastels, their day felt like a fairytale set amongst the beautiful wooded estate of Moraine Farm.

Jenny & Bradley are both dancers, each with their own unique artistic abilities and talents. They thoughtfully incorporated their love of dance and art into the day through subtle ways, including their beautifully choreographed first dance. 

Jenny & Bradley, thank you for including us in your spectacular day!! Enjoy my favorite images of the day!!

The Best of 2016 : Florals & Bouquets

Today kicks of my favorite series of the year, The Best Of!! Each year I share the best of engagements, portraits & weddings through a series of blog posts highlighting the amazing celebrations, couples and families I've had the honor of working with over the past year. 

Florals always seem to be an integral part of my work. I love the romance, softness and delicate nature of flowers. It's no secret that I love floral design. I've even had the opportunity to take several floral workshops over this past year (fun = designing your very own floral crown!). I especially love when clients share my love of blooms -- nothing makes my heart pitter patter more than a glorious oversized wedding bouquet ;)!! 

To celebrate my love of all things beautiful and flowery, today I will be kicking of the 2016 Best of series with the Best of Florals & Bouquets. I'll be sharing links below of the amazing creatives I've had the opportunity to work with as well, in case you're in search of a talented floral designer!! Now on to all the pretty!!
