Katie & Vinnie / Wedding / Zuka Hilltop Barn, Spencer MA

“A soulmate is a romantic partner who really understands the needs of your soul, mind and body with little or no explanation needed.”
― Lebo Grand to host their wedding.

Katie and Vinnie planned an April 2020 wedding prior to the pandemic hitting the US. Like every other wedding couple they rescheduled until September hoping for a positive outcome of the virus and the ability to host their wedding. Dates changed, guest lists changed but one thing always remained….the desire to get married this year. I remember the day Katie messaged me that she didn’t care where they would be getting married but that they WERE getting married in September. The love and friendship this couple has for each other was immediately evident when I photographed them during their engagement session. I do direct during a wedding, that’s for sure, but the emotion seen in all their images is not contrived or fake. There is a real bond between these two which was a total joy to photograph and witness. Please enjoy their wedding day journey, puppy included. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness filled with lots of my fairy magic xo

Hannah & Jacob / Backyard Wedding / Shelburn Falls, MA

 “Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it be rather a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”
– Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Hannah and Jacob were married in the most magical garden in Shelburn Falls, MA. It was a lovely and intimate family gathering with a gorgeous pond view. I personally think it was the most romantic place ever to be married. Enjoy the little tour of their special day and wonderful property where they said “I do”

Samantha & Steven / Backyard Wedding / Ludlow, MA

Our 2020 wedding season has been nothing short of absolutely amazing couples. Sam and Steve, you have braved the ups and downs of the pandemic, changes in venues, changes in guest counts that have had to fluctuate based on state guidelines and honestly, have come out of it with a grateful heart full of love and married to your best friend. There was not a dry eye during the ceremony (Steve…sure, no tears for you lol ) and the party could not have been better. Great food from Villa Rose and a pool to swim in when the day miraculously against all weather reports and odds turned sunny. I would have to say the entire day was a win! I wish you both many blessings and a little of my fairy dust to keep all this wonderful magic alive and growing xoxo

Canyon & Josh /Backyard wedding / August 22, 2020

Amidst the covid pandemic, Canyon and Josh were able to say I do among friends and family in an incredible backyard wedding in Palmer. The views were gorgeous and we could not have asked for a better day. I give this couple so much credit for reorganizing so many times throughout the last several months. The details were to die for and seriously, Kudos for everyone’s hard work that went into making this day a reality. Love is kind, love is patient and love knows no bounds. After ten years you have both married your soulmates xoxo Slainte ( I think it is supposed to be cheap tequila?)

Heidi & Gary /Wedding / Longmeadow Country Club

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
― John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love

Gary and Heidi married at my beautiful home church, Saint Cecilia’s in Wilbraham, followed by a wonderful and elegant reception at Longmeadow Country Club. I don’t think these two could have asked for a more perfect day or me for that matter, my church, my son singing and my best friend a manager at the club. It totally felt like home:) There were so many familiar faces it was a joy to work this wedding! Wishing you both an amazing life together filled with love and friendship xoxo

Cindy & Dennis / Wedding / Union Station

“Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.”
― Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary

Clearly, This wonderful couple was cured by marriage and united as a family in an intimate wedding ceremony surrounded by friends and family at the Union Station in Northampton. I absolutely adored the venue and railroad backgrounds so much I went back and walked the bike trail adjacent the next day. Fantastic choice! Wishing all three of you a beautiful life ….I am sure so much happiness is in store for you in the coming years xoxo

Josh & Tonya /Wedding / The Spencer Country Inn

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”
– Plato

Tonya and Josh married on a beautiful summer day that honestly felt like fall and reminded me of new beginnings. I met this couple many years ago for a maternity session and was so enchanted with the way in which they responded to each other. Josh was kind and caring when helping Tonya while she was pregnant and Tonya was clearly head over heels in love with Josh. What a perfect match! They had their darling son, Josh Jr, and I couldn’t be more proud of the parents that they have become. Now this little family is united in marriage and I am thrilled beyond measure. May you always be blessed with the endearing love that I saw right from the beginning….xoxo

Amanda & Mark / The Log Cabin / Wedding

“I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen.” 
― A.A. Milne

“How do you spell ‘love’?” – Piglet
“You don’t spell it…you feel it.” – Pooh” 
― A.A. Milne

I can’t even begin to relay all the wonderful comments delivered by so many friends and family on Amanda and Mark’s wedding day. There were Winnie the pooh quotes which of course I loved, a lovely reminder that it doesn’t matter which book you follow, spiritual or religious, so long as you support and love each other, and I totally enjoyed our Michael Jackson dances by the bride’s father. Way to go! And of course, my own little chuckle ( I am totally showing my age) as I watched the bump being danced. Such an incredible display of dancing, love and family united. I wish both of you and Miss Cora every joy life has to offer xoxo

Marissa & Bill / Wedding / Quonquont Farm, Whately

The flowers were arranged by a family member and simply beautiful, a cookie truck (how clever) was the treat for all the wedding guests, the farm property was stunning and the food totally yummy. Such a perfect day. and now….wishing you both a lifetime of happiness sprinkled with a dash of my fairy dust xo
