Kelleymarie+Melissa | Wedding |Tewksbury Country Club

It was a beautiful (albeit a bit chilly) day at the beginning of April for Kelleymarie and Melissa wedding.  It wasn’t raining (or snowing) so that’s all you can really hope for when you have a Spring wedding.  You just don’t know what you are going to get in New England in the early Spring.  Drew started the day with Kelleymarie getting ready at a nearby hotel while I headed to Melissa & Kelleymarie’s house.  Melissa was there getting ready with her friends and family.

Thankfully we didn’t have to go very far as the Tewksbury Country Club has a gorgeous bridge right outside the ballroom that is perfect for portraits. KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0043 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0044 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0045 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0046 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0047 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0048 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0049 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0050 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0051 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0052 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0053 I loved the bride’s complimentary but different bouquets.  KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0054 AHH!  I just love this shot, such a beautiful moment on the bridge. KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0055 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0056 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0057 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0058 You can see some guests peeking at the happy couple from the balcony during cocktail hour. KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0059 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0060 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0061 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0062 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0063 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0064 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0069 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0065KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0066KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0067KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0068KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0070 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0071 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0072 The brides started the reception with a lovely first dance followed by toasts from Kelleymarie’s siblings. KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0073 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0074 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0075 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0076 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0077 There were lots of laughs and smiles during the toasts!KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0078 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0079 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0080 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0081 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0082 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0083 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0084 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0085 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0086 After cutting the cake Melissa’s sister offered another toast.KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0087 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0088 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0089 Melissa is known to perform Proud Mary at family events so of course on her wedding day she killed it.  Before singing she changed into a different outfit so she could really get into it!  It was an amazing moment and everyone loved it.  KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0090 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0091 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0092 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0093KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0094 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0095 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0096 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0097 KM_Wedding_Tewksbury Country Club_0098

Cake Smash_0013

Carmela+Evan | Cake Smash Session

A few weeks ago I spent some time with these two sweeties who just turned one!  Their mama’s planned a lovely cake smash session at Erin’s house.  Carmela and Evan’s moms are friends and they are already planning the wedding for these two born only days apart.  Cake smash sessions are always so much fun to shoot because you never know how the kids are going to react.  Enjoy some favorites from this session!
