Jonathan Edwards Winery is another favorite of mine, but this was my first visit during the summer months. August 8th was perfection. Green as far as the eye could see, lush vines, beautiful light, and a great group of people. The attire for the day was on point as well. Taylor’s BHLDN dress had a hint of blush, a perfect compliment to the winery, and the groomsmen jackets had a little flavor (on the interior) as well.
You may remember Katie and Julian from their killer engagement session this spring in California. If not, definitely check it out HERE!
Fast forward to August, when I joined them at one my favorite venues in New England, the Boston Public Library, for their wedding extravaganza. Personal details like the floral embroidery from the wedding dress of Katie’s mom was added to hers, the notebook wedding favors, and the very reason they hosted their event in a library (a fitting choice for two writers) all made for a meaningful celebration. Not to mention their fantastic families and friends, who gave some of the most hilarious and creative toasts.
Thanks for welcoming me to your home in California, and for including me in your wedding here in Boston! Whaddaya say, this time next year again?

On July 18th Hayley and Lorenzo celebrated their 10th anniversary of dating. And now, that is their wedding anniversary as well! (Although Lorenzo was pulling for a 7-Eleven themed wedding, which fell the Saturday before.)
After the long haul of law school, they returned to a Boston College property one more time, with a professor in tow (conveniently who is also a judge) to finally get married, and celebrate with their family and friends. It was an emotional day for everyone (including me) as a crying groom gets me everytime!

“With A Little Help From My Friends” went a long way at Claire and Mark’s summer shindig a few weeks ago. Claire’s mom made her dress (and it should be noted, she is not a seamstress.) The signature cocktails were crafted from hand collected rose petals. The band, the florist, and the desserts (my favorite macarons in the city) were all provided by friends of the couple. And then Tracy of Tangorra Wedding Planning, Erica of Russell Morin Catering, and I rounded out the team (and I like to think we’re all friends now too.) Cheers!
I love photographing weddings in Bristol Rhode Island. There’s an elegance to the area, but it still has quaint New England charm. So lucky for me, I spent back to back weekends there at two of my favorite venues. First up, Linden Place.
Jenny is the youngest of four sisters to get married, so she has been thinking about this day for a long time. Usually those dreams don’t include rain however, so when the forecast was predicting showers, it can put a damper on anyone’s outdoor wedding parade. Thankfully though, the rain held off until later that evening, and they were able to hold their ceremony outside in the gardens, and we got to take advantage of exterior for portraits as well.
