This sweet mama to be is off on a new adventure in France, before she left we squeezed in a session. I’ve known Brianna for many years now and have watched her grow and become the amazing strong woman that she is. She’s dealt with so much and just keeps moving forward. I wish you nothing but the best Brianna! I can’t wait to see what you do next in Paris with your new family. Prue came along and shot with me, she had a few great shots. I’ve marked the ones that Prue took. *Proud mama here*
It was a day filled with smiles and lots of love for Melanie and John’s wedding. We started the day getting ready at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester. I loved the large room the ladies had to get ready it! It was gorgeous. The guys met Drew at the church, St. Rose of Lima in Northborough, where they hung out before the ceremony started. Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony. I absolutely loved the stained glass at the church, it was gorgeous (being a former art teacher who took stained glass in college, I always appreciate it!). Melanie+John opted for a full mass, but it felt like it went by so quickly. Next it was off to Tower Hill Botanic Garden for the reception. We spent cocktail hour taking wedding party and family portraits. Once those were done we ran around Tower Hill to hit up some of the fun spots for portraits with Melanie+John. There honestly are so many places at the venue that are amazing. I think you could shoot there every weekend and use different locations each time. Melanie loved the Wild Rumpus sculpture on the property (as do I!) so we hustled over to it for some portraits. Before too long cocktail hour was over and all their family and friends were being brought into the Orangerie for dinner, where we spent the rest of the evening eating and dancing. Enjoy some of our favorite images from Melanie+John’s wedding day!
Ceremony Venue: St. Rose of Lima Parish
Officiant: Father Jim Houston

We always set up our FunBooth to capture all the amazing outfits at the Derby Party. This year because the event was sold out we had to adjust our system to make room for the extra bar, all in all, it was totally worth it so we could help raise money for National MS Society!
