Rosy & Will's Free-Spirited Vermont Wedding

The invitation to their wedding featured an image of a cork from Robert Hooke's 1665 book "Micrographia," notable as the first book to show illustrations seen through a microscope. I've always been a bit of a bibliophile, so it was a particularly delicious moment for me when I was able to photograph their rings and invitation along with an original copy of this historic volume.

For other couples planning a wedding (or two), Rosy's advises, "It is okay to be unconventional!"

Tara & Paul's Old Hollywood New England Wedding

Tara & Paul tied the knot on September 2, 2017 at Shelburne Farms, a National Historic Landmark known for its 1900s Gilded Age architecture and sweeping views of Lake Champlain.  Tara explained, “We wanted to share this beautiful place with everyone we love and care so much about. Shelburne Farms is simple and breathless at the same time.”The style of the buildings, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, and their integration into the landscape inspired the bride to create an elegant and timeless wedding.  “It was very important to highlight nature in both the ceremony and reception spaces. We did so with lush greenery, beautiful florals, gold accents, and romantic candle light.”

Caitlin & Paul's June Wedding at the Inn at the Round Barn Farm

Caitlin & Paul married on June 24, 2017 in pastoral Waitsfield, VT.  The rain gave way to a gorgeous, sunny day at the Inn at the Round Barn Farm. Stone walls, lily-pad filled ponds, archways and butterflies made this a beautiful place to celebrate. The two tied the knot at the Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church, with a traditional ceremony lead by one of Paul's childhood friends, Grayson. I photographed Caitlin's sister's wedding last year, and it was awesome to visit with the family again and be part of another exemplary wedding.

Sarah & Michael's Covelo, CA Wedding

"Linking arms with my dad, I was already crying, but in that moment everything felt so real. The next moment was even more emotional, walking down the aisle and seeing everyone under the trees. I couldn't believe that everyone came to celebrate with us! Standing under the Madrone tree gazing into Michael's eyes as Captain Mike spoke, I felt so loved and so full of love." - Sarah

Kate & Garrett's York Wedding

"I felt a sense of calm that I did not expect to feel on our wedding day. I was nervous to have all eyes on me for sure, but I was so happy to be surrounded by our wonderful families and so excited & comforted to be marrying Garrett that I wasn’t really anxious about anything. I was definitely expecting to be a weepy mess during the ceremony, and got pretty emotional just thinking about it ahead of time. But when I took Garrett’s arm at the altar and saw & felt how emotional he was, all I felt was this need to support him. That was a solidifying moment for me - Garrett has been my rock through so much, and there I knew that I would be able to be a rock for him too as we go through life. " - Kate

Rosy & Will's Springtime Wedding

"Both of our favorite parts of the wedding was how our immediate families came together and seemed to really enjoy spending time with each other, despite some folks not having met each other yet... and the food and weather were awesome! Plus, there is something special about what happens visually at the end of April, with buds and flowers just starting to come out. It is a beautiful time of the year." - Rosy

1,000 Miles: East Coast American Road Trip

The sun rises on the eastern tip of Acadia National Park and orange light floods the world. Salty spray, daisy-filled fields, sun-soaked walks in Somerville, climbing up stratum-filled mountains, oysters, breweries and book stores. An eight day road trip around New England with my partner, Nick, proved most enjoyable.

Dancing with Dsantos

"Last summer is when we decided to officially go into business together, but we have been dancing together for about 3 years. We actually are one day apart in age and went through school together but, we never really got to know each other until we danced on the salsa team. Now we get to create choreography, teach Latin dance, and eat dinner together! " - Jon Bacon
