Attleboro, MA Wedding at Colonel Blackinton Inn {Karen + Walter}

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of photographing Karen and Walter's intimate wedding at the Colonel Blackinton Inn in Attleboro, MA. This couple definitely had karma on their side because rain was slotted for the whole day but when the morning came, we actually found patches of time where the rain was only a faint drizzle, barely noticeable really, so that we could walk across the street to a lovely park and photograph this beautiful couple outside on their wedding day. We were able to sneak out again after their vows to the front porch of the inn to take some special photograph's with the groom's daughter and bride's step daughter. This little munchkin was so adorable to photograph.

As I wrote in my first blog post at Colonel Blackinton Inn for Elizabeth and Sean's wedding, I absolutely love photographing at this venue. If you're planning an intimate wedding here, please do reach out! I'd love to be a part of your day.

This wedding is part of my series of intimate weddings. These range from courthouse elopements to up to three hours at any venue of your choice, be it structured like this one or in a park or other unique location. These are my favorite weddings to photograph. My intimate wedding and elopement couples always win my heart.

Enjoy!

Weston, MA Intimate Wedding at the Weston Town Hall {Laura + Fred}

Congratulations, Laura and Fred! I am so honored to have been a part of this beautiful couple's elopement last week at the Weston Town Hall. I met up with Laura and Fred to capture their elopement ceremony and some portraits of the newlyweds. And let me say, they were so much fun to work with. Not only were they super adorable together, snuggling up for portraits and laughing the whole time, but they also completely embraced the rainy weather. While it was just a drizzle, it was definitely constant and it didn't phase these two for a second. After all, it also brought with it some really beautiful overcast skies, a photographer's dream for an 11am wedding.

The ceremony took place on the steps of Lanson Park, with the beautiful Town Hall building just behind us. We utilized the building's classic charm, the red brick and stone pillars and ventured around Lason Park to capture the summer time greenery. On the way in, I also spotted a gorgeous stone wall covered in ivy at a nearby church, The First Parish Church in Weston, so we hopped in the car to capture some images with the beautiful background as well.

While I was only with Laura and Fred for an hour, I can easily say that it was a total pleasure to photograph them on their wedding day. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Now, here are a few previews to enjoy!

Cambridge, MA Wedding at City Hall and Harvest Restaurant {Ratnakar & Cheryl}

Congratulations Ratnakar and Cheryl! I had the pleasure of photographing this couple for their intimate wedding this past Saturday. We met up at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to photograph some portraits of just the couple in an private setting. While we were just a few steps from the city, this area truly felt like a green oasis. It was the perfect spot to capture their first wedding day portraits and was only a short drive away from Cambridge City Hall.

This couple had the honor of having the Mayor of Cambridge, E. Dennis Simmons officiate their wedding ceremony. With their closest family and friends witnessing, they said their vows and were officially married in the Mayor's quarters in at Cambridge City Hall.

We were then able to sneak away for just a bit to photograph a few more portraits of the couple at the beautiful Longfellow House in Cambridge before heading over to their lunch reception at Harvest Restaurant.

While I was only with this couple for a few hours, it was clear to see that they had a picture perfect love. Congratulations again to this lovely couple!

Enjoy some previews from their wedding day below.

Cambridge, MA City Hall Wedding {Wilberthe + Will}

There is nothing more intimate than a wedding ceremony with the bride and groom witnessed by their closest family and friends. I am honored that Wilberthe and Will chose me to photograph their intimate wedding this May at the Cambridge City Hall. We met for their beautiful ceremony and  took portraits of the happy couple with their immediate families and best friends on the City Hall lawn.

I think many couples getting married at City Hall don't think to hire a photographer because it's not your typical wedding. Well, hopefully my series on intimate weddings can help change that because I have to say, I absolutely love photographing them. When you strip away the details and focus on the ceremony and the people you're the closest with, you're left with something so beautiful, it's hard to put to words. I encourage you to take a look through my intimate wedding series if you're thinking of cerebrating your wedding in an intimate way.

Congratulations to Wilberthe and Will! I am so happy for you! And now, please enjoy previews from their wedding day.

Boston, MA City Hall Wedding {Julie + Patrick}

Julie and Patrick held an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family this past summer in Boston. Their good friend married them in a beautiful ceremony in the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park right on the water. Originally, the couple was planning to get married at Boston City Hall and we were going to walk to the park for photographs but their friend pointed out that she could marry them anywhere and why not hold the ceremony under the beautiful green, sun-splashed canopy as well. A street performer played some jazzy Sinatra, there was a light summer breeze, and the mood was perfect.

I absolutely love photographing intimate weddings because they are just that, intimate. The sometimes-over-the-top details are left behind and the true love intention of the day, shared with those closest to you, remains. I couldn't help but tear up a bit when they said their vows. The way they looked at each other and down towards Julie's belly and their little one on the way had everyone a little teary-eyed and full of smiles.

The couple chose Lucca in the North End to enjoy some delicious Italian food so we grabbed some photographs along the way in a few of Boston's iconic brick alleyways. I cannot wait to share a handful from their collection with you.

Best of luck to you, Julie and Patrick, and so much love to your little bundle of joy, too!

Here's a big shout out to the vendors who made the day possible.

Attleboro, MA Wedding at Colonel Blackinton Inn {Elizabeth + Sean}

I loved every minute of photographing Elizabeth and Sean and their beautiful family this past summer. I met Elizabeth through the yoga community only earlier this year but she is one of those people where I felt as if I'd known her forever. From taking her yoga class to photographing her wedding, I can say that she is one of the warmest, most down to earth people I have ever met. Of course with a personality like that, you can only imagine that the person she's chosen to be her partner is also incredibly real and compassionate as well. And, meeting her three girls on her wedding day was so much fun as well! All three are incredibly sweet, so much fun, and awesome as bridesmaids!

Photographing Elizabeth and Sean's love on their wedding day was so refreshing. {No pun given all of the rain that day!} You could see it in their faces during their ceremony, from the sincerity, to the huge smiles, this couple had my heart melting. We were super lucky that the rain parted for a short while to grab some photographs around the property and at a beautiful park across the street. And while we didn't see a rainbow during photographs, I am certain that one came out later that day, a sign from her father on her wedding day.

Colonel Blackinton Inn was the perfect venue for this wedding, a totally intimate and relaxed setting, completely beautiful all around. This venue is winning my venue of the year award for sure because not only was it completely beautiful to photograph, but the staff was so incredibly friendly and accommodating. They went above and beyond in all of the ways that matter, literally getting their hands dirty to make everything perfect. I highly recommend them to those of you looking to host an intimate wedding. {And please pick me to photograph it because I now cannot wait to get back here to shoot some time soon!!}

I hope you enjoy looking at all of the fun, all of the love, and all of the awesome dance moves as much as I loved photographing them! Enjoy!

Elizabeth teaches at NRG in Mansfield, Universal Power Yoga in Norwood, SheBreathes Balance and Wellness Studio in Walpole and Firefly Yoga in Foxboro. I highly recommend checking out her yoga classes!
