An autumn beach wedding at the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester, MA

There’s no better way to tell Kerry and Chris’s love story than through the brides own words - “A lot has happened in ten years. I made it through two college degrees and started my career. Chris finished his apprenticeship and quickly achieved great success as an electrician. We beamed with joy when new little members joined the family - we became ‘uncle’ and ‘auntie’. We cried as we had to say goodbye to loved ones along the way. We bought a house, and we learned a lot about money, responsibility and each other. Chris surprised me with our very first baby - Cooper, our rescue mutt. And we quickly learned even MORE about responsibility, money and each other!

We have sung along to more Kenny Chesney concerts than we can count. And we have shared more Kraft Mac & Cheese dinners than we’d like to admit. We made new friends and grew apart from others. We had times when we didn’t know if everything was going to work out between us. And we spent nights talking about our future together even when we were still just kids ourselves. No matter how much has changed over the last decade, one thing always seemed to remain the same.

When Chris asked me to spend the rest of our lives together, I screamed out, “FINALLY!” - but I didn’t shriek these words because I’m impatient. These words came out because somewhere deep down I knew this is what I have always waited for - this beautiful life we have built together. Not many people can understand marrying your first true love, but I’m so grateful that’s how it worked out for us.”

To Kerry + Chris - may your beautiful wedding day live in your hearts forever, may Cooper keep you laughing always, and may every sunny summer day be one spent on a boat together.

Thank you to the dream team of vendors!

A puppy-filled Boston City Hall + Public Garden wedding

Cathy and Evan, 15 years in the making!!! Oh, and we can't forget about Gotham, their chihuahua-lab-dachshund mix 🐶 These puppy parents are a self proclaimed "old married couple," obsessed with pho, bubble tea, BBQs, ice cream, traveling, river tubing, you name it.⁠

On their 15th anniversary, they arrived at Boston City Hall ready to finally get married! Around 20 of their friends and family came to celebrate, bringing bubbles for a grand exit down the stairs of City Hall Plaza!

Cathy and Evan got engaged in Belgium at the Herge Museum, a museum dedicated to the creator of the Dutch comic “The Adventures of Tintin.” They paid homage to their favorite cartoon and proposal memories with a custom wooden bow tie and earrings with illustrations printed on them.

After family formals, Evan put on some Backstreet Boys and they danced down Comm Ave in fabulously dramatic fashion before saying heyooo to Romeo & Juliet, the swans in the Public Garden.⁠⠀

A stylish, puppy-filled Christmas tree farm engagement

 
 

Stephanie & Ivin love a few things: each other, a good bottle of champagne, skiing, traveling (especially to Chicago, or anywhere warm), cheering on their Boston sports teams, ramen date nights, and above all, their adorable Boxer pup, Django.

Ivin popped the question this October, so the two celebrated their recent engagement winter in true New England style: at the adorable Greenwood Tree Farm in Billerica. They went home with a perfect tree to decorate, AND hot cider & doughnuts.

CONGRATS Steph & Ivin on this amazing chapter!!!

A sunrise Canoe Beach engagement shoot in Nahant, MA

If Haleigh & Adam had to pick a favorite place, they would both say Aruba (and probably at the same time). The white sand beaches, the romance, the crystal blue ocean - it's their favorite thing to do, followed closely, of course, by going out to breakfast together. On Haleigh & Adam’s 8 year anniversary, he surprised her with rose petals, eggs benedict (her favorite), and a diamond ring.

Rewind almost a decade ago to high school, where they started dating as freshmen. As most high school relationships and 16 year olds go, though, they went their separate ways. It wasn’t until college that they reconnected, and have been inseparable ever since. Fate? 100%. Since then, they’re adopted an ADORABLE boxer named Bennett and are planning a laid back, oceanside wedding at the Beauport Hotel in Gloucester next year.

An outdoor puppy-filled anniversary session

Matt & Melissa - where do I begin? From their engagement shoot complete with an ice cream run, lunches to plan the wedding, a bridal shower in the rain, a surprise video filming, and finally their wedding, these two have become such amazing friends of mine. They recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary, and their adorable pup Hunter joined them for an autumn shoot!
