“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” – Anne of Green Gables

Well, I for one, am glad for Octobers (my favorite month), but also, fall weddings outside, farm weddings, and couples like Emma and John! What a fabulous day and a fun couple – they had smiles on their faces all day, and why not, right?

I’ve been here in the winter, and in the summer… but this was my first fall wedding at Harrington Farm in Princeton, MA. It did not disappoint! Weather ended up being good enough for an outdoor ceremony (on the terrace).

First look! Emma’s friends didn’t want to miss it, you can see them all on the porch, watching her walk down to John.

Love these two shots (above and below), taken just a couple minutes apart – as all the guests are arriving – everyone is curious to see what’s happening!

After much deliberation about whether to do the ceremony inside or outside, Emma took a chance and went with the outdoor ceremony on the terrace. Good choice!

Now the amazing fall details! The couple designed/made all of this themselves. As much as I love pumpkins, I think my favorite is the table with all the wedding photos of the parents/grandparents, with the lucky horseshoes.

Hey, it’s Throwback Thursday! I have so many beautiful weddings in the archives that I just never had the time to blog… So, today I am happy to share with you the Newport mansion wedding of Julia and Will! The wedding ceremony was right on the water in front of the house, with gorgeous views of the bay. Of course, the best view was just to turn around and look at that amazing house! This is a real, working historic mansion on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, still in use as a residence. Lucky for the couple, their family friends own the mansion, and found the perfect spot for their wedding ceremony!

I only stayed at the reception for about an hour – we all headed over to Christie’s at 41 North in downtown Newport for the rest of the wedding celebrations.

Ah, welcome spring! It’s welcoming us here this year with 8 inches of snow. Yay! I can’t complain too much since we’ve had it pretty easy. However, last year… Well, let’s think back (wait, no)… But yes, at least for one night, just to Tai and Chris’ absolutely gorgeous January wedding at the Barn at Gibbet Hill. The Barn was transformed into this glittering winter wonderland with shimmering lights, white flowers, and personal touches everywhere, all designed (and much of it DIY’ed) by the tremendously talented bride. It’s amazing how warm and cozy this huge barn can be when it’s full of happy people, talking, laughing and dancing.

All of this to celebrate the coming together of two wonderful people, Tai and Chris. It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of this beautiful winter wedding!

I always love this – the wine & letters for your five (or ten) year anniversary. Best part is, you can always fill it again with your favorite wine and new letters :)

Yes, it was just a little cold and snowy that day too… So nice to be all cozy inside the barn as the party started.

What a great job I have! As a wedding photographer, I get to do what I love, be a part of one of the most important days of a couple’s life, go to beautiful locations, eat some great food, and enjoy an amazing dance party. It’s such an honor having a backstage pass to such a wonderful day.

Everything just comes together perfectly (even when there are a few bumps in the road and surprises), and Caitlin and Marc’s wedding was no exception. Not to mention that their love and happiness just shines through in all the photos. *And* their wedding party had me entertained all day. :)

The Stevens Estate, of course, is always one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding! The Estate itself is beautiful, and the tent is perfect for summer weddings.

Ceremony: St. Augustine Parish, Andover, MA

Reception: Stevens Estate, North Andover, MA

The day started at Caitlin’s mom’s house, and she fixed up the room to feel just like a bridal suite!

And the on to the Stevens Estate, where Caitlin and Marc both finished getting ready… and they each had lovely cards and gifts for each other.

The ceremony was at St. Augustine Parish in Andover, which is right down the road from the Stevens Estate. I’ve photographed a few weddings here, and the ceremony is always so personalized and fun.

I love the grounds of the Stevens Estate for wedding photos! You can’t go wrong, especially on a day like this.

Some very funny and touching toasts! This one, I believe, involved a middle school bet (and Caitlin had to pay up :)).
