Kristen and Michael - Labor Day Weekend Wedding

If you know me at all, you know my heart belongs in two places: the Mississippi Gulf Coast and Massachusetts. So every chance I get to shoot a wedding in Boston - I jump at it. So of course I was thrilled when Kristen and Michael contacted me about their backyard wedding in Westford, MA.

Fast forward to the week before their Sept 4th wedding, and here comes Hurricane Earl. I decided to be preemptive, and got an earlier flight out of Gulfport so I could arrive well ahead of the storm. Luckily Earl was a bust - and the weekend ended up being one of the nicest weekends of the year! Perfect wedding weather!

Kristen and Michael had a lovely church wedding and an beautiful backyard reception. Special thanks to Erik Patton for second shooting with me! Details, church and reception photos to follow!

Mistlewood Wedding - Beverly, Massachusetts Wedding Photography

I couldn't contain myself any longer. I know I have a few weddings to edit before I get to this one - but I couldn't hold it in any longer and had to post at least one photo from this wedding.

Mistlewood. The beauty of this place is served well by such a magical name.

When the couple told me they were getting married on the coast at Mistlewood at Endicott College, I knew it would be picturesque. But I had no idea how picturesque. Breathtaking? Words can't describe it.

If you told me I could only choose to photograph weddings in one location for the rest of my career - I'd smile, have a seat and tell you I knew exactly where I'd choose.

Cliffs, water, sailboats, ivy, an ocean breeze. I'll post MANY more photos from this wedding in the near future. For now, enjoy this one. I know the couple enjoyed this moment.

Bay St. Louis, Mississippi - Engagement Session; Trevin and Dana

Of course I love *all* my wedding couples... but can I tell you that I really get giddy over Trevin and Dana? What a fun (and uber photogenic) couple! I first met Dana for our initial meeting at the yummy Mockingbird Cafe in downtown Bay St. Louis.

Their October ceremony will take place at the Baptist church downtown, with their reception planned at a private riverfront estate. Doesn't it sound lovely!?! I can't wait to be their wedding photographer - because these two lookers make my job easy :)

And since the couple will be getting married downtown, we made plans to meet again at the Mockingbird Cafe for their engagement session. Okay, can I just say it was a HOT day. Well, hot isn't even the word for it. More like OPPRESIVE... but look how well these two kept their cool. They remained gorgeous throughout the whole session (which I can't say the same for myself - but luckily I was the one behind the camera!)

Wedding on the Wharf - Jackie and Dan's Boston Wedding

Three years ago, on August 11, 2007 I shot Christy and Adam's wedding in Peabody, MA. I will never forget that day. Of course, the bride and groom themselves are unforgettable - but aside from that, I will hold that day near and dear to my heart because it's the day I realized I was pregnant with Tilley.

A beautiful wedding at the Smith Barn, packed full of Red Sox fans. I was enjoying the wedding, as it was a lovely afternoon with amazing people - although I was feeling a little under the weather. Light headed, fluttery stomach. About halfway through the reception in dawned on me, that -ah, could it be?!!! And it was. I went home and promptly took the test. And the rest is history, red-head, sippie cups and all.

Imagine my excitement when Christy called me years later to tell me her sister Jackie was engaged and that they would like me to photograph their wedding. Score! I knew the Brodie family and knew what wonderful people they were. And I jump at any chance to shoot in Boston!
Now imagine my continued excitement when I found out the reception would be help at the New England Aquarium! So much fun.

Jackie and Dan were married at Our Lady of Victories church in Boston's Back Bay. After the beautiful ceremony we drove to Christopher Columbus Park right on Boston's Long Wharf for all the family photos. It was packed with people - as it usually is on a day this nice - but we managed to keep most of the tourists out of their photos :)

Now, the real treat of the day for the bride and groom - a close family friend of the couple's, Bud owns a beautiful sailboat in the Boston Waterfront Marina near Long Wharf - and offered to sail the couple from the harbor over to the aquarium, so they could arrive in style!!!

My wedding posts aren't usually nearly as long as this, so thanks for staying with me so far! But the night was magical - the view from the Aquarium patio was just breathtaking. The weather - perfect. The people - more perfect! I stayed longer than contracted because, well - I was having way to much fun to leave!! Thanks Jackie and Dan for inlcuding me in your special day!

Christy and Adam - the former couple of mine! And parents to adorable Mia who would *SO* be playmates with Tilley if we were closer!
