So – in the great news/terrible news camp, I’ve been so busy (great news – I love weddings!) that I have not had time to share them (terrible news – I love showcasing couples and the awesome time they had!)

That means I’ve been waiting over a year to share the destination Sturbridge wedding of Christine and Dan!

Their wedding was straight out of a postcard of New England in fall – autumn leaves, the largest bouquet ever seen in Massachusetts, and a very happy pup.

I lived in Boston for several years, and its always a thrill to head back to the East Coast for a wedding. I catch up with friends, get some killer Italian, and drink Dunkin’ Donuts 3 times a day.

But it was a particular joy to finally meet all the family I had heard so much about over the years from my friend and Christine’s sister, Kate.

As I had been led to expect from years of friendship, there was dancing to questionable 90s songs, there was crying, and laughter, and so very much to celebrate.

I love a dress with a little color to it – Christine’s had a slight blush champagne, perfect for all the warmth of autumn

I don’t always show a ton of family photos when I blog weddings – not because they are not important (they are so important!) but because when they are right, you shouldn’t really see a photographer’s hand in them at all. But I love this entire family photo

Whenever I photograph weddings on the east coast, I love the casual use of old spaces that we don’t get in other parts of the US. Case in point – old stables, now cocktail hour lounge.
