Nikki & Nick / Wedding / GreatHorse

Another beautiful steamy July wedding and not just temperature wise. Nikki and Nick said I do at the beautiful GreatHorse venue in Hampden, MA surrounded by family and friends. What a perfect setting to unite these two best friends. Stories, laughter and so much joy was shared it was a true pleasure to photograph this wedding. I loved all the little details, including the wine corks and keys, and the cupcakes were yummy.It could not have been a more perfect day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and many, many blessings xo

Paige & Daquan / Wedding / The Riverview

” Every once in awhile in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a Fairy Tale”

I keep hearing this quote in my head as I as I prepare to write this blog. Daquan, the true gentleman and prince, who in fact wrote a two page letter to read to the bride and bridesmaids on the day of the wedding. Paige, the princess and love of his life, who read that letter to her friends with tears in her eyes . I believe that is the stuff dreams and fairy tales are made of. Love, friendship, support and genuine caring for all the family and friends in each others lives. Truly a match made in heaven for this special couple. Wishing you both all the joy marriage has to offer and…even though not needed, sprinkled with a little Karen fairy dust xoxo

Angie & Ryan / Wedding /The Boylston Rooms

It is always so exciting to photograph every wedding. Each couple is unique, every love story different but all share a love so wonderful that we always feel blessed being able to be even the smallest part of their day. Angie and Ryan chose a date very important to them, their 14th anniversary. They were surrounded by family, friends and their two amazing children. I don’t think they could have asked for a more perfect day. We wish you both every blessing as a couple and family as you begin your married life. Slainte!

Congratulations to another Wilbraham couple as they tie the knot in my hometown. It is so amazing when I have the opportunity to photograph all the young men and women that I have had the pleasure to watch grow up.  Life is good xoxo

Longmeadow Country Club / Wedding / Allie & Collin

Being my best friend, you are the shoulder I lean on, the person I can run to, the love of my life, and my everything.

I heard Allie so often before the wedding state….I can’t wait to marry my best friend.  Collin, the way you look at Allie melts my heart.  You are both just so perfect for each other and so in love that it makes it such a joy to be around both of you.  So much love, friendship, fun, warmth and caring all rolled into one.  And soon, your beautiful love will honor a tiny being which will make that love even stronger. I wish you every blessing as you begin your journey as husband and wife and soon to be mom and dad.

The Garden House / Wedding / Matt & Jodi

“They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!”

I thought this quote so described Jodi and Matt. Running is their passion, their love their common ground.  Not surprisingly, the first date was even going for a run:) You are now on a new run, the marriage run.  Enjoy every moment and remember to never run too fast and stay at the same pace.  Wishing you every happiness as you embark on your new adventure xoxo

Aria / Wedding / Peter & Nadine

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”

I believe in the magic of love and all the glitter and sparkle that cones along with it.  All one has to do is look into the eyes of Nadine and Peter to see the love, friendship and magic they both feel with each other.  They were surrounded by such a welcoming family it was hard not to be the most perfect day! Congratulations to both of you.  may you always feel and see the magic that lies within both of you xoxo
