Hayley + Lorenzo at The Connors Center

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!

Claire + Mark at Blithewold Mansion

“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!

Jenny + Ian at Linden Place

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.

Featured on Elle Decor

This week I had two photos featured on Elle Decor’s “8 Wedding Ideas to Steal for Everyday Entertaining.” Check out the full article here.

I’m partial to number 01 (a pink sequined sweetheart table from this wedding at Sharksmouth Estate, a favorite venue of mine.) And number 06 (a signature cocktail from an editorial I photographed for Bliss Celebrations, more from that shoot can be seen here.)

Evelyn + John’s Backyard Wedding

I was honored to be included in Evelyn and John’s backyard shindig at the end of May. They have been together for 15 years, and engaged for 8, so this spring they wanted to make it official. Along with a small group of their family and friends, and some Chinese takeout in the yard, they did just that.

This was a true DIY affair. Evelyn thrifted all of the table decor and decorations, and set up that morning with her family. No small feat, even when you’re trying to keep a celebration casual. And in true Chinese takeout fashion, they invited their guests to crack open a fortune cookie to end the meal.
