Nicole & Kevin: An Indian Pond Country Club Wedding

Nicole & Kevin were married at one of our favorite venues, Indian Pond Country Club. Nestled in Kingston, Mass, Indian Pond is about as picturesque as it gets. With a beautiful rolling golf course as your backdrop, the perfect weather on Nicole & Kevin’s wedding day only sweetened the deal.

The beauty of an  outdoor wedding ceremony at Indian Pond Country Club simply can not be beat!

A Saphire Estate Wedding: Jes & Josh

We photographed a wedding at Saphire Estate in Sharon, Mass. last month that could not possible have been more perfect. The bride, Jes, was an absolute joy to work with. Her groom, Josh, was an equal pleasure to his bride, truly a match made in heaven. The friends, the family, the vendors, the venue, the sunset… this is why I love my job.

Outside Saphire Estate, the groom aunt officiated the ceremony for a special and persoanl touch.

It was especially cool that the groom’s aunt, Hon. Beverly Weinger Boorstein, was officiating the ceremony. She was smooth and captivating, and had the guests mesmerized.

The first dance is possibly one of the most pivotal events of the night. DJ Derek Holt from Entertainment Specialists was on hand to ensure that everything went as planned.

The traditional parent dances took a unique turn when both couples, bride & dad and groom & mom, took to the floor together.

A few moments stolen away from the crowd is treasured, because the day is over in the blink of an eye.

Jen & Cody {July 6, 2013} The Neighborhood Club

With all the crazy weather we’ve had this season, Jen & Cody got lucky on their wedding day. It was warm with some clouds, and the rain stayed away. The alluring bride and her girls were getting ready at The Quincy Marriott, and so it was there Jen & Cody would also have their “first look”.

The stage is set, and Cody is anxiously awaiting his first look of his bride. This photo, one in a series, truly captures all of the emotion, excitement and bliss that is happening and that is to come…

And once their eyes have met, the anxiety melts into a calm serenity that will set the mood for the rest of the day.

Jen & Cody’s wedding ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. One of Jen’s bridesmaids, Julia, doubled as their officiant. The colors were amazing, the smiles were stunning and the words they spoke were both personal and winsome.

A wedding day is full of “firsts” and traditions, and Jen & Cody did not leave out the tradition of the wedding cake. The wedding cake dates back to ancient Rome, and generally symbolizes good luck to and for the new couple. Jen & Cody’s wedding cake, by White’s Bakery, fits the bill.

Jen & Cody's wedding cake, made by White's Bakery, was an obvious hit, but the looks on their faces.

As the night wore on, there was much tripping the light fantastic attended to and performed by all. You’ll have to check in with Jen & Cody for more photographic proof, but here’s one peek…

(Well don't skip romance beause) you're old enough to dance the night away... Dance, dance, dance the night away....

As the night winded down, we knew what a great wedding we had on our hands (and in our cameras). You, the reader, may or may not know Jen & Cody personally, but we think you’ll feel like you know them after reading their wedding blog post. A wonderful, fun couple who have a lifetime together ahead of them, we wish them well as they endeavor into married life.

Bethany & Chris: A Winter Wedding Wonderland {February 16, 2013}

My wedding blog posts are usually chronologically presented, but with a title like “A Winter Wedding Wonderland”, I have to “WOW” you right out of the gates and go a little out-of-order. Ready? Set…

I can’t leave it at just one. I have to sneak in another outdoor photo in the snow.

Now we can go back to the beginning and start with the ceremony. Bethany and Chris were lucky with the wedding date they picked. It was one week after the big blizzard, and just enough snow to make everything a little prettier. Their ceremony and reception were both held at The Holiday Inn, Rockland.

New Year’s Eve: Christina & Christopher Style! {Dec. 31, 2012}

Christina & Christopher’s wedding was our last wedding of 2012… and sort of our first wedding of 2013, all in one! They were married New Year’s Eve at TJ Smith’s Victorian House in East Bridgewater. If you have ever had the pleasure of attending a wedding at TJ Smith’s, then you can surely imagine what a wonderful time was had by all. For starters, take a look at this first photo, and see if you can guess what the groom does for work…

Ahoy! Not every bride can say she has her groom's occupation on her toe!

The ceremony was held at TJ Smith’s quaint on location chapel, as family and friends  gathered to ring in the New Year and celebrate the newly married couple.

There was plenty of dancing and entertainment all night long, thanks to DJ Arthur Calabro. The first dance is always the most memorable.

Capturing the first dance when they don't know you  are capturing it makes for the best photo, wouldn't you agree?

There is something about this photo that really captured my attention. The pride you can see in Christina’s mom’s face actually seems to have traveled to Christopher. Is that even possible? You decide.

Some photos tend to emote in a way that truly holds a moment in time forever.

Let’s not forget… this was New Year’s Eve! There may have been some really cool music being played. There may have been some really amazing dancing going on. (If you were at the wedding, I suggest you ask Christina and Christopher for the link to all their wedding photos…) And yes, there may have been some colorful masks, some interesting hats and other props floating around…
