Katie+Kevin | Ceremony and Reception | St. George Church Worcester & Tuckerman Hall

Here is the second half of Katie and Kevin’s day!  After finishing up at Institute Park we all headed over to St. George’s Church in Worcester for the ceremony.  It was a full mass at the church that Katie grew up going to.  Once mass was over we headed over to the gorgeous Tuckerman Hall in Downtown Worcester.  It’s an amazing wedding venue, so much character and a great reception space.  Katie and Kevin decided to have a band and having the stage at the venue was perfect for that.  Katie did a great job pulling together all of the details and they really looked great at Tuckerman Hall.  Thanks again Katie and Kevin for letting us be a part of your wedding.  It was a beautiful day to witness two amazing people get married! The note Kevin was writing Katie earlier in the day :) Waiting for the ceremony to start.  Katie was a bundle of nerves, but her bridesmaids, her mom (and myself were there to calm her down!) Love her Dad looking at her as they walk down the aisle! Some special moments during the mass.  After mass we did a few quick portraits in the church with the wedding party and both families. Then it was off to Tuckerman Hall for the reception.  The rain had held off for us all day, it started down pouring during the reception, but we were able to take advantage of the great architectural features of Tuckerman Hall.  Love the groomsman popping his head out of the door in the image on the left.  The bridesmaids figured out a way to hold onto their bouquets but still be handsfree to enjoy their drinks! Love the details of the reception.  The flowers were lovely and the table numbers are genius, super easy & so pretty.  They had LED “votives” in them.  Super sparkly ring shot, check!  Kevin’s ring has some great details on it too! The guestbook we designed for them using their engagement photos! The wedding party had all planned different entrances The balcony at Tuckerman Hall allows for great photos like this one!  Drew and I would trade off who was downstairs and who was up in the balcony. The band Mirage had everyone on the dancefloor all night long!  They did a great job.  The saxophonist really got the crowd going when he came down for his solo! { The Details }

Chris+Steph | Engagement Session | Downtown Amherst & UMASS Campus

My baby brother Chris is engaged & will be getting married to Auntie Steph (as Prue calls her).  Our Family is so excited and can’t wait for the May 27, 2012 to come.  They met while in school at UMASS Amherst so we decided it made sense for their engagement session to head back to Amherst, MA.  We love them so the drive from Lowell to Amherst wasn’t so bad.  Drew & I enjoyed the drive from Lowell.  We also took a break to have dinner & then another break to have some drinks.  We started the session in Downtown Amherst, stopped by ABC (the Amherst Brewing Company) because they had their first date there.  We all enjoyed a beverage while at ABC.   Then we headed to the UMASS Campus and spent some time walking all over.

We had a great time hanging out with them & can’t wait to shoot/celebrate their wedding next May at the Publick House!

Jill+Victor May 28, 2011 | Flag Hill Winery, Lee NH

We had the honor of shooting Jill & Victor’s wedding at the Flag Hill Winery up in New Hampshire.  You might remember them from their engagement shoot.  We’ve known Jill and Victor for quite some time now.  Amanda & Jill were RA’s together at Salem State.  We’ve stayed in touch over the years and when Jill & Victor got engaged the one thing Jill was sure about was having us photograph their wedding (which we this is super sweet!)  Jill is originally from New Bedford area so obviously that means she was/is awesome in Drew’s book.

We had a great time & it was a beautiful day.  Flag Hill Winery is a amazing wedding location & we would love to shoot there again.  Finding an awesome outdoor wedding location in New England can sometimes be tough.  We aren’t California, but the winery offers that amazing wine country feel.  The food was yummy, the staff was awesome & Heather the coordinator was great to work with.

Thank you Jill & Victor for trusting us to capture your day.  We wish you many years of happiness to come :)

Her bridesmaids gave her a box of Jelly Beans (she was called Jilly Bean so it was really sweet!).  They also included lots of photos from over the years.  The bridesmaids really dug deep into the photo archives. Victor with his 2 adorable nephews, doing Victors go pose. I love this photo.  If Drew and I were to renew our vows, I’d want to do it outside under trees as beautiful as these. Jill’s bouquet was gorgeous.  Julie at Creative Gardens did an amazing job on all the flowers!

Jill, you are gorgeous! Love the dreaminess of this one!  The sun was gorgeous and the backdrop of the vineyards was amazing. Love this one too.  I think this would make a great canvas print for your home :) Jill & Victor came out for their first dance and then within seconds a bunch of their guests joined them on the dancefloor.  They planned a flash mob, everyone was laughing and having a blast dancing with them.  It sure was a memorable first dance.  Jill is a huge Michael Jackson fan.  (It’s all we listened to while they were getting ready in the morning).  Jill’s mom & sister lead the guests in an amazing rendition of thriller.  Jill also gave the dj a special megamix of MJ to play during the reception.  The dance floor was packed all night long! | Wedding Info |
