Sneak Peek: Samantha and Patrick

I just spent a wonderful weekend with my family at my cousin’s wedding in Glen Ellen, CA up near Sonoma. Wine country! And I was proud to be there not just as a cousin, but also as the photographer! Here are a few photos to tide everyone over while I work on the rest … and they are worth waiting for!

Love you Sam and Patrick!

Wedding: Kate & Dan at Home in Sudbury, MA

Kate and Dan had a wonderful day wedding at their home in Sudbury – everything was absolutely gorgeous! This intimate affair included some of the most gorgeous floral arrangements I’ve ever seen, including whimsical flowers hanging on ribbons from the tree where their ceremony took place. The tents were lovely, the food was delicious, and Commodore the dog participated, too! The day started at a nearby inn where Kate prepared:

Back at the house, I photographed the rings, and a heart-shaped stone Dan made as part of his proposal to Kate. So sweet! The bouquet was pretty fabulous, as well:

The ceremony was completely unique; about seven of Kate and Dan’s closest friends all acted as “officiants,” each reading a selected passage and sharing their stories of Kate and Dan. It was such a touching, personal event, full of laughs.

While guests enjoyed some pre-lunch cocktails in the outdoor lounge area before proceeding to the tent for a delicious meal …

… Kate and Dan and I took some portraits! They are the sweetest couple, with the cutest dog, too!

The floral design was stunning. I could not stop taking photos of all the details! I want to live in these tablescapes:

And, oh, the food! Absolutely delicious. Unbelievably delicious. It really set the scene for a delightful cocktail hour and a fabulous luncheon, complete with funny and sentimental speeches galore:

Kate and Dan, thank you for having me there on your wedding day. Your laughter is still ringing in my ears!

Wedding: Amy & Greg at Plimoth Plantation

I was thrilled when Amy and Greg announced their venue was Plimoth Plantation. The third grade nerd in me did a happy dance and wanted to pull out her bonnet and wear it all summer long! I held back and instead just told this lovely couple how excited I was for their wedding. And it was a gorgeous day, indeed! We started at the Radisson Hotel Plymouth Harbor for all the details and getting ready photographs:

After a quick, but sweet, first look, we all boarded a trolley and made our way to Brewster Gardens, the Jenney Grist Mill, and the Plymouth waterfront for group portraits and couple portraits before heading to the plantation.

The ceremony took place in the plantation’s Hornblower Garden and, wow! What a beautiful location! We were lucky enough to stay there after the ceremony, too, for more couples portraits. Just gorgeous!

The reception was beneath a tent by a barn and the water, and was just perfect. I loved the vibrant gerbera daisies on all the tables (my fave flower!).

This was a dancing crowd like no other. After a very sweet first dance (and parent dances, and speeches), everyone got down. So fun!

Wedding: Matt and Maria at The Henderson House, Weston

Matt and Maria’s gorgeous vintage-inspired wedding was such a glamorous affair! The Henderson House was the perfect venue for such a romantic, whimsical evening. These two paid attention to every detail and the mansion in turn oozed charm and glowed with warmth. I absolutely adored their literary theme! Both Matt and Maria wrote their own, unique vows, and it was so touching to hear them speak their chosen words to each other. Take a look at this beautiful couple and their fabulous day!

Boudoir Beauty: Isa

Are you all ready for a spectacular boudoir beauty? Isa snuck away for a secret boudoir session at a local Boston estate a few weeks before her wedding, and boy was her groom happy that she did! Who wouldn’t be ecstatic with a gift like this?

But a boudoir session is not just for a lucky partner to enjoy … it is a celebration of being a glamorous, sexy woman! I love seeing how empowered my girls feel after a shoot. It is amazing how a boudoir experience brings out the very best in a lady.

We had the best time shooting these – Isa, you are just gorgeous. Thanks for coming out and having a fun day of hair, makeup, lingerie, and general sexiness! It was beyond a blast.
