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

― 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

Another glorious July day for this couple to tie the knot. There was so much thought and love put into this wedding it was just lovely. 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

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!
