Wedding: Joni and Scott at the Middlesex School, Concord, MA

Summer is a beautiful time to get married, which is why there are so many summer brides here in New England! Joni and Scott are an adorable couple and their tent wedding on the grounds of the Middlesex School in Concord, MA (where they are both employed) was amazing. Thanks to Tara Lynn Sen Photography, I got to come along as the second shooter.

The day started with Joni getting her hair and makeup done; here she is without any makeup yet, and she’s already stunning:

We then met up at the Middlesex School where Joni and her ladies were getting ready at one of the administrator’s houses. Tara and I covered all the fun details as the girls prepped. The pink shoes are incredible!

The day threatened rain, but held off until after dinner. It was perfect – not too hot!

The dress was absolutely beautiful: one-shoulder lace and so light! Joni was beyond gorgeous in it.

We had great portrait sessions at the house – there were so many wonderful places to shoot. Joni and her family and her bridesmaids all looked lovely.

After spending time with Joni, Tara and I went over to visit the groom, Scott. What a surprise for me when I realized that I’d gone to college with Scott and recognized half of his groomsmen from class, music groups, and wandering the pathways of Middlebury College! It was so much fun to cover a Middlebury wedding.

Joni and Scott chose not to see each other before the ceremony, so there was lots of anticipation as Joni approached the chapel with her father and stepfather.

After a wonderful ceremony, we made sure to capture the newlyweds in all their bliss!

The reception took place in a tent on the Middlesex School grounds and it was filled with flowers! A tent wedding is a photographer’s dream for lighting – it is so easy to bounce flash and make everyone look amazing. Not that this place or this couple needed any help…

We stole the newlyweds’ rings for some quick shots before enjoying the speeches (and the couple’s hilarious reactions to them!), the cake-cutting, and all the dancing.

Congratulations, Joni and Scott – it was a beautiful wedding and  you are an awesome couple!
