A summer Willowdale Estate wedding in Topsfield, MA

In the words of the groom, “People said it will never work - she is a beautiful angel and he is a unique-featured weirdo.”

Mallory & Ryan have known each other since high school, through awkward encounters and mutual friends. After realizing they were particularly sweet on each other, Mal & Ry patiently waited for the right timing to be together. Between law school, medical school, Connecticut, and Boston, Ryan popped the question by the romantic reflecting pool in Boston, and she said YES! 

With the forecast showing thunderstorms and rain at Willowdale Estate all day, Mallory & Ryan prepared themselves for a wet wedding day. It poured all morning long, as predicted. As Mallory descended down the stairs to see her husband for the first time, something miraculous happened: the SUN came out. After a joyous first look, the ceremony began. Right before their first kiss, everyone could hear the pitter patter of drops bouncing off the tent - it began to pour as they sealed their marriage with a kiss and ran down the aisle. 

Here's to an INCREDIBLE Italian honeymoon and a lifetime of love, dancing, basketball, scooper bowl ice cream, getaway weekends to Burlington, beer, running, and HAPPINESS! <3

A rustic, summer Harrington Farm wedding in Princeton, MA

"I choose you."

First, Katie & Marty wanted to throw a surprise wedding at their annual clambake. Then, they decided to try out their own backyard for a low-key wedding. Finally, they found the perfect mix of rustic and beautiful: Harrington Farm. They got ready in an old farmhouse just like the one they live in together. Needless to say, everything was utterly perfect.

With a piece of her dad's shirt sewn into her dress, and a special message for her dad sewn onto his tie, this wedding was full of sentimental details. Katie's mother's eyes began to well up with tears as she saw her own veil wrapped around her daughter's bouquet, and the tears were FLOWING during Katie & Marty's *almost* first look. The rainy forecast made way for sweet sunshine all day as Katie & Marty danced on cloud nine through their wedding day with tons of laughs, an abundance of tears, and so many loving guests.  

As Katie's father simply put it, their families aren't gaining a son or a daughter, they're gaining one hell of a couple. Forever and always, The Derens.

Thank you to the fabulous vendors!

A lighthouse York Harbor Inn wedding in Maine

"It's never too late to live happily ever after"

Joan & Jeff have such a wonderfully quirky love story. In 2015, these two met at a gathering and were found "making out in the kitchen like two teenagers." They found out that they both drove the same exact Town & Country minivan, both had dogs named Zoey, both had sisters named Anne, and were blind in their right eye. Well, these Californians took a trip to Maine, and Jeff proposed to Joan at the York Harbor Inn and sealed the deal! Their bubbly personalities are meant to be, always laughing, dancing, kissing, and caring for everyone around them. They celebrated alongside their family, friends and a whole bunch of starfish. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Connell for getting #yorkedinmaine !

Thank you to all the incredible vendors!

A dino-themed Boston Museum of Science Wedding

"Come let me love you, let me give my life to you."

Alia and Austin descended down the escalator to the lower level of the Blue Wing, stealing a kiss while their guests cheered them on. This was their first entrance as husband and wife. They took to the dance floor, as their bridal party looked on with joy in their eyes. Alia’s grandfather nervously picked up the microphone. He looked over to his daughter, Alia’s mother, for reassurance. She reached over and pulled a guitar from the case by her feet. Alia’s mother began to strum, as Alia’s grandfather began to sing: “You fill up my senses, like a night in a forest, like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain…”

Alia and Austin interlocked their fingers, pulling each other close. They slowly swayed, as their family serenaded them to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song.” The room was silent, listening to the duo, with the exception of a few sniffles here and there. As the song ended, her grandfather gave her two thumbs up, as she ran over to give him the biggest hug. “You did great Papa - you did great.”



Alia and Austin managed to incorporate dinosaurs in every part of their day, whether it was walking down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song, to literally strutting around in dinosaur heels all day. Oh, and who can forget their kissing dino cake topper, or more importantly: the dinosaurs that beat extinction and joined the party? They poured themselves into each detail of the day, and enjoyed every last minute of it (and every last bite of their chocolate peanut butter cake).

To road trips, to ups and downs, to love, to snuggles, to MARRIAGE. 

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!

A Cambodian Stevens Estate wedding in Andover, MA

This Stevens Estate at Osgood Hill wedding will have you blushing...

On a hot, sunny June day, Somaly & Samnang (lovingly known as Maly & Nang) celebrated their first ever moments as husband and wife. As she recalled the first time they met during the ceremony, Maly began to cry. The pair has known each other for over 15 years, shared Long Island iced teas in clubs all over the world, got engaged on a beach in Bali, had a beautiful daughter Abzelle (quote from the bride: "She's the best thing ever"), and are so excited to spend the rest of their lives together.

They mixed American and Cambodian traditions, having a single-day wedding at a nontraditional venue, The Stevens Estate in Andover, MA. They had an American ceremony, then Somaly changed into a traditional Khmer bridal dress to collect envelopes full of money from their guests. From their doughnut bar, to the guests' talents in breakdancing and c-walking, to the hundreds of family members traveling from near and far to celebrate, last night was a night they will never forget!

Maly & Nang - your wedding was such an incredible experience full of SO many laughs and even more love. Abby is the luckiest girl to have you both as her parents - congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Kong! You're the bomb.com!

A whimsical Lighthouse Point Carousel wedding in East Haven, CT

Chrissy & Nick: lovers of Italian food, curling up on the couch to watch anything from scary movies to cooking shows, camping, and most of all, each other. They met while living in Boston, and we even took their engagement photos on the beach their apartment overlooked. After almost 5 years, Nick popped the question at a Christmas party, and the rest was history.

On one of the hottest Connecticut days in May, Chrissy & Nick tied the knot in front of their family & friends at Lighthouse Point in East Haven. Wearing her great grandma Clara’s bracelet and her grandmother Violet's necklace, Chrissy walked barefoot in the sand down the aisle before her uncle gave her away. Guests rode the magical carousel, danced to the setting sun, ate wood fired pizza from a pizza truck, and danced the night away. Their carnival celebration wouldn’t be complete without some late night cotton candy and favor bags filled with rock candy and salt water taffy.

Chrissy & Nick, you both are so special to me - I wish you decades of happiness, silliness, laughter, and love.

Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors!

A spring, oceanside elopement in New England

Emma & Greg's oceanside wedding in South Dartmouth was one of the most unique days I've ever had the honor of photographing. On this misty, rainy day, Emma got ready in the colorful church daycare with her mother, father, and brother by her side. She slipped on her stunning BHLDN dress and glittery pair of Bagdley Mischka's before heading downstairs to the ceremony. Greg's family joined Emma's family in the pews, and in front of all eleven guests, they shared their vows and made their marriage official. 

A few raindrops came down as Emma & Greg walked down the dock to the waterfront. They kissed, hugged, and laughed before heading to dinner with their families. They're traveling to Korea in May for a traditional ceremony overseas. Wishing this sweet couple all the love and happiness in their marriage <3

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!

An autumn historic Casino at Roger Williams Park wedding in Rhode Island

Six years ago, Kate & Tyrone had their first date in Davis Square going candlepin bowling. They bonded over their love for music and animals (among other things), and who couldn't resist a girl as pretty, funny, and loving as Kate? The two hit it off, and before they knew it, they had traveled together to Puerto Rico, France, the Bahamas, South Africa, Turkey and Dubai. Tyrone popped the question in a vineyard in South Africa this January. Fast forward 10 very quick months, and their big day was finally here!

Kate expressed her passion for architecture in both of the historic getting ready homes, the ornate church, and the grand Roger Williams Casino reception venue. The autumn breeze was crisp as the two tied the knot in front of their family & friends, the furthest traveling from Cape Town, South Africa to be in attendance! Kate and Tyrone danced to Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Kate and her father broke it down to the famous Pulp Fiction dance. From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle socks, to pumpkin cake, to personalized wine bottles, and of course a ride on a vintage CAROUSEL, Kate & Tyrone threw one heck of a party.

Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
