Hi friends, we’re so excited to be sharing Crane & Yuefeng’s Harkness Memorial State Park engagement session today! I won’t say much in this post because their wedding is in less than three weeks (yay!) but we were so excited when they contacted us. They drove down from Boston on the most beautiful day for their engagement session and Harkness could not have been a more perfect location. Congratulations you two and we can’t wait to see you again!

Oh hello there, today we’re sharing Chris & Jenna’s Lace Factory Wedding with you and we’re so excited! We usually post weddings on Wednesdays but it’s Fri-yay and we don’t want to wait to post this one so we’ll make an exception!

Jenna & Chris are the most joyful and fun couple – from the second that they welcomed us into their lives after I (but actually Google maps) got us lost on the way to Jenna’s mom’s house to the second that we said goodbye to them on their wedding day, we actually felt like a part of the family and we love when that happens! In one of their first emails to us they said that they met in New York City over a $1 burger special at a local bar – right then I knew that it was meant to be because we all know how much I love burgers (and if you didn’t know, now you do).

Sidenote: I once (recently) said I would photograph a wedding for $100 and a cheeseburger – and I meant it.
But that’s besides the point.

The last time we were at the Lace Factory was for Courtney & Rich’s wedding (see that one here!) and since then we have been dying to go back! It’s so stunning and the staff at Cloud Nine catering is so incredibly nice, I really enjoy chatting with them whenever we’re able to! It’s always fun to wander around the property and stop in all of the little nooks and corners; there’s really nowhere that isn’t beautiful for photos. And the best part is that we get to go back tomorrow for Sarah & AJ’s wedding! It really is a Fri-YAY!

Congratulations Jenna & Chris, we’re so happy for you and we can’t wait to visit you!

GUYS! I am so excited to share Cassidy & Dom’s intimate backyard wedding with you today!

I have so many things to say about this wedding and no idea how to make it all flow nicely so this post might be a hot mess – sorry! To begin with, I met Cassidy when she was nine – NINE! My sister Amy and I had changed ballet schools in 2006 and the first day I was there I met a girl named Morgan and we instantly became best friends – and Cassidy and Morgan are sisters so it was only natural that Amy and Cassidy became best friends too!

When Cassidy mentioned that she met a guy, I was like oh cool! and then moved on. Little did I know they would be getting engaged a few months later and then married shortly after that. I didn’t meet Dom until the wedding day but every time he was brought up in conversation before that at least one person would say ‘oh my gosh Dom is so adorable and sweet’ (my mom included!) so I knew that he had to be a great guy! Every time he looks at Cassidy you can basically see hearts in his eyes – kinda like this:

Cassidy is the funniest and sweetest person in the world and Dom compliments her perfectly. This is the first wedding that I’ve ever photographed without Peter (but I had my sister Amy as an assistant and a ton of these pictures are hers because she’s amazing!) and I was secretly terrified (shhh!) but wound up having such an amazing time. The entire wedding was so family oriented and it was just a celebration of two people who are in love – they didn’t do anything because they had to, they just spent time with their families and had fun. It’s honestly one of my favorite weddings that I’ve ever been to and it’s the first wedding that made me cry while I was editing! Every time I opened my laptop and saw any of their photos I couldn’t stop myself.

It’s also the first blog post that I’ve included father/daughter dance photos in – I usually don’t post them but you can just tell how much everyone loves each other and it all makes me so happy so I wanted to share it here.

Congratulations Cassidy & Dom, I <3 you both.

OH and my sister Amy made the cake and cupcakes and she does it for a lot of weddings if anyone is interested, wink wink.

Hello and happy Saturday, we’re so excited to share Lauren & Adam’s Riverhouse Wedding with you today! Lauren and Adam grew up in the same town but didn’t meet each other until college where they started dating – we were lucky enough to meet them at Lauren’s brothers wedding that we photographed (see that here)! We knew that we were destined to get along when Lauren told us about their love of Disney in the first email that she ever sent us – evidenced by their wedding cake!

They had such a sweet and beautiful wedding at The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station and we feel so lucky to have been there. Not only was the wedding gorgeous, but all of the staff at The Riverhouse are so nice and welcoming which makes the day so much smoother and so much fun! Congratulations L + A, we loved spending time with you!
