I realized today that I never shared the images from Nancy & Chad’s wonderfully nerdy sci-fi boho chic wedding on Cape Cod. These two worked so hard to handcraft an amazing wedding day that was authentic and filled with joy for everyone involved. Their ceremony took place at Chad’s family home in Orleans, in the very same spot where his parents were wed. How romantic is that?!
Their wedding was featured on the Something Turquoise blog, and you can check out a ton of their crazy awesome DIY details over there. Here are a few of my very favorites from their day.
Sometimes clients will ask me if I take family portraits at weddings, because it’s so rare that they show up in my portfolio. The answer is always an enthusiastic YES! When else will everyone you love be in the same place and looking so fabulous? I always make sure to that I work with my couples to make sure that we have time to take some photos of them laughing and smiling with the people that mean the most to them. Moments like these below are the reason why! I don’t remember what was said to make Nancy’s mom laugh like that, but it must have been good. I love her expression here. There were so many happy tears shed during the wedding ceremony. Good thing someone remembered the tissues! Nancy & Chad collected or DIY-ed much of their decor, and included special touches that were adorable nods to their professions, families, and shared love of sci-fi.

Kate and Kenny’s wedding day was filled with romantic details and sweet nods to their gorgeous and unique venue – the Providence Public Library!
We spent the morning getting ready at the Omni Hotel, where Kate’s suite was outfitted with a bookshelf with the most beautiful antique books- it was fate! Kenny’s custom cufflinks were a gift from his lovely bride, honoring his other love – his jeep. Kate and Kenny were married at the beautiful St. Dominic Chapel at Providence College, where they met. In keeping with the library theme, the tables were each named for a favorite author of the couple.

This sweet duo have been planning their wedding day for oh so long, so everyone involved was so excited when the day finally arrived, including me! I first met Jess & Josh when we did their Fenway Park engagement session way back in 2012, and I knew right away that they made an amazing team. They’re crazy about each other, and their warmth and humor makes them the kind of people that everyone loves to be around. Their wedding day at the Seacrest Beach Hotel in Falmouth was filled with family, love and laughter, silly and sweet moments, and just so perfectly them. Oh how I adore you two. Let’s be best friends, OK? Don’t make it weird. Their wedding ceremony was filled with happy tears and belly laughs all around. venue | Seacrest Beach Hotel

This summer, I traveled to the Catskills for the wedding weekend of Ashley & Mi. The two of them worked so hard to DIY their way to a perfect, heartfelt and joyful weekend filled with an amazing amount of personal details. The Full Moon resort was the perfect spot to bring together friends & family from all over to celebrate and enjoy all of the fun activities planned by Ashley & Mi. There was a campfire singalong, marshmallow roasting, and an outdoor yoga class led by one of Ashley’s bridesmaids. I felt a little like I was at summer camp instead of working!
Each of the wedding guests was given a ribbon, which they held while sending sweet thoughts to the couple. Everyone then tied their ribbon into one long strand, which the officiant used to do a handfasting. It was such a beautiful and thoughtful touch. At the end of the reception, the guests made a sparkler line, and Ashley & Mi led the entire party over to the Full Moon Roadhouse for pie and Contra dancing!

I am so excited to share these wedding images today! Justin is an old friend, so I was thrilled when he asked me to photograph their wedding. I’m so happy that these two found each other, they make for an awesome (and super photogenic) couple and their personalities complement each other perfectly!
That green wall, those sparkly green eyes, ack! Noelle, could you be any more gorgeous?! A little rain shower on the way out of the church didn’t bother these lovebirds much. Then back to the Omni for some portraits with that amazing car! I was so excited to spot this awesome green wall across the street! Congatulations, Noelle & Justin!

Alyson & Dino’s wedding was a dream to photograph, from the perfect pink and blue details to the amazing water views at The Boathouse in Tiverton. How stunning is Alyson’s blush colored dress? I’m obsessed with those ruffles! After the ceremony, we made a quick stop at Colt State Park for some bridal portraits. There were so many sweet happy tears during the dances and toasts! I had to get a shot of those bridesmaids dresses from the back – amazing! The Boathouse has such gorgeous views of the water, and we had a killer sunset on Alyson & Dino’s wedding day. At the end of the evening, Dino and his brothers entertained the crowd with some Tom Petty (my fave!). Photogenic and talented, what a combo! Congrats Alyson & Dino, it was such a pleasure working with you!

Ashlee and Dale got married on a gorgeous summer day at the Crestwood Country Club in Rehoboth, MA. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, sweeter couple, or a more enthusiastic bridal party!
The morning of Jen & Pete’s wedding at the Atlantic Beach Club, we all had our fingers and toes crossed for the rain to stay away. Luckily, it stopped just before we began our getting ready photos, and didn’t start up again until we’d headed inside for the reception!
After their first look and a few quick bridal party photos, we all headed over to the gorgeous Elms mansion. Congrats Jen & Pete!
