Juliana and Chris had their Plimoth Plantation wedding back in October of this year. Plimoth Plantation was a bucket list venue for me so I was super excited to get to photograph such a wonderful couple at one of my dream wedding venues. Both Juliana and Chris got ready at John Carver Inn in Plymouth before meeting each other at Plimoth Plantation for their first look.

I had a blast with Juliana and her girls in a cozy room at John Carver as they helped their friend get ready and smooth out all her pre-ceremony jitters. Juliana’s dreamy dress is from Sottero & Midgley at Precious Memories dress shop. It was truly one of my favorite dresses that I have seen all year! That dress was SO fun to photograph on it’s own and while Juliana was getting it on!! I also loved how Chris put their wedding date in his “The Joe” Joseph Abboud custom suit. It was a nice touch and something to look back fondly on for years to come!

It was a rainy wedding day which normally would throw most for a loop but Juliana stayed cool, calm and collected. Luckily on the Plimoth Plantation property was a cute old house that made for a dry, pretty and well lit spot. It was the perfect spot for these two to see each other all dressed up for their first look. Since we spent all of their engagement session hanging out in the rain in Somerville, rain on Juliana and Chris’s wedding day was nothing to worry about!!

After their adorable time alone together family and bridal party joined us for portraits at the house. The rain even stopped briefly and we were able to step away from everyone for some portraits of just the two of them in the adjoining woods.

Stay tuned for part two: the ceremony and reception. Because I am sharing a BUNCH of photos from this wedding I decided to break it into two parts. I can’t wait to share the next post!

Devon and Virginia got married in Provincetown on Saturday September 23rd. Provincetown a favorite for both Devon and Virginia and where they both spend the majority of their summer. Virginia’s family owns a super cute cottage in Truro that both spend over a month in the summer living.

Virginia got ready with her family and close friend Lucy at the cute little cottage Saturday morning. Devon got ready with her family and close friends at the Provincetown Inn. We all met up at the iconic jetty and adjacent park next to the Inn for Devon + Virginia’s first look. This backdrop also made the perfect spot for photos of family and the bridal party. Virginia and Devon said their vow’s at the First Congregational Parish in Truro, MA. This cute cape cod chapel is where Virginia’s parents also got married. The ceremony was appointed by close friend Rev. Marcella Gillis (former classmate of Virginia’s at Yale Divinity School) and included readings by family and a breath-taking performance of amazing grace.

After the ceremony it was on to the Provincetown Inn for fun and celebrating complete with tunes provided by the band GC and the Lady and laughs and love provided by all of their awesome friends and family.

Kerri and Christopher had their Francis Farm wedding on Sunday September 3rd and it was a day just as amazing as the two of them! Francis Farm was a great backdrop for Kerri and Christopher’s laid back vibe! All day I felt as though I was good friends with both Kerri and Chris they are just about the nicest people and a BLAST to be around. Whenever I get to witness two people that clearly love each other as much as Kerri and Chris do it gives me butterflies.

Kerri and Chris had a wedding that was definitely not cookie cutter, had so many elements that were uniquely them and most of all the day was filled with so much LOVE. I started the day with Kerri and her girls as they all got ready together. Just as Kerri’s very cute t-shirt said they were a stone cold pack of weirdos in the BEST way possible! After putting on her dress and final touches Kerri opened the gifts from Chris and her parents. Kerri’s parents had a beautiful charm made for Kerri’s bouquet that honored her brother Matt that has passed away. Kerri also honored Matt in her own way by having his blue sweatshirt sewn in her wedding dress in the shape of a heart. Although Matt couldn’t be there in body he was there in spirit and his loving presence was felt in many ways all day long. After gifts were exchanged Kerri met Christopher under the gazebo for a first look. You could tell that right when these two saw each other all the nerves they were feeling melted away and the small jokes and funny antics started.

It was a touching ceremony with personalized vows, lots of laughs, a few tears and SO much tribute to those that couldn’t be there. Kerri and Chris’s dog Dallas stole the show and was such a great dog of honor! After the ceremony we utilized the museums and sprawling property for fun family and bridal party. I am a big fan of the tractor museum and how awesome Kerri’s bridal party was when I asked them to climb John Deer tractors and sit on top of vintage cars.

Kerri and Chris made quite an entrance as they danced to I want to grow old with you played on the Ukulele by one of the groomsmen; Shawn Kelly. After toasts by best man Jonathan Howard and maid of honor Briana Johnson the crowd was ready for dancing, lawn games, and spending lots of time by the fire pit toasting s’mores. And that rain shower made for an unforgettable sunset, I was happy to bring Kerri and Chris out on the field to grab some photos and for them to spend a few moments together. I had a blast on your wedding day guys and I am SO happy that I was there to capture your love story and celebrate with you!

Michelle and Jonah what can I say I fell in LOVE with you both within minutes of meeting you! I loved Michelle with her down-to-earth, friendly demeanor and contagious free spirit vibes. And then I met Jonah who smiled with his whole body clearly SO much in love with Michelle and SO excited to be her husband. It was also my first time photographing or being on the Lavender Farm property and it’s gorgeous grounds and lovely old antique home. AND it was my first time shooting alongside Sara Smile Photography whose work I have admired from afar for the last year +.

Michelle and Jonah’s wedding day was nothing short of spectacular! It was a day filled with family and friends on the lovely backdrop of fields of lavender, an antique home and beautiful trees and flowers everywhere. Michelle and Jonah had a Jewish ceremony and also signed a Ketubah in the love shack on the property with both Jonah and Michelle’s families; including their grandparents. All of the bridesmaids wore different color dresses and suits and had their spirit animals as pins on their lapels. I love that Michelle asked Jonah to marry her on stage at an Improv show; the place in which they first met and fell in love. It was a day of nostalgia, love, laughter, songs and a SUPER FUN choreographed first dance by the bride and the groom. A day I will surely never forget!
Also super big thanks to Detailed Engagements for knocking the day out of the park! Tiffany was the planner for my friend Sarah’s wedding and she was a calm presence all day! I would highly recommend her to my future couples!

I recently met up with Virginia and Devon to photograph their engagement session in Provincetown, MA. Virginia and Devon were a blast to hang out with and I had a ton of fun that evening as we explored Commercial street together and then ended our session for sunset photos at Race Point Beach. We even made a guest appearance at the Squealing Pig bar on Commercial street where we shared beers and conversations with some colorful locals.

Virginia and Devon met each other while working at St. Georges School in Rhode Island. They started off their relationship in the best of ways; as friends and it wasn’t until they both taught for a summer at Camp Laurel, a children’s summer camp in Maine that things started developing into more than a friendship.

They began officially dating later that fall, but Virginia headed off to grad school in Connecticut in the fall of 2014, so they weren’t sure how things were going to work out with a long distance relationship. It became clear pretty quickly that while they certainly didn’t enjoy the distance between them, neither wanted to end things because of it. That fall was probably the moment when they both knew that they both wanted to be together for the long haul.

Both Virginia and Devon described themselves as type A personalities who love organization and order, adventures, nature, their dogs and just generally spending all their time together. One of my favorite questions to ask a couple when I am getting to know them is what they both love about each other because I truly feel like it gives me an insider introspective into their souls.

Devon said: “she loves how driven Virginia is. She is dedicated to everyone she knows and everything she does. I love that she is my personal cheerleader whenever I am trying something new or doing something I am the least bit nervous about. I love that I can count on her for anything. She never disappoints and always has my back.” Virginia says of Devon: “I love that Devon is always able to surprise me. As much as we love to organize and plan things, she somehow manages always to sneak in a surprise here and there that is totally unexpected. I also love that her mantra for life is to try anything twice. She will rarely say no to a new experience; instead she leans into whatever new activity or adventure I encourage us to try and gives it a fair shot.
