Janna and Brian – Jones River Trading Wedding

Janna was another high school classmate of mine. It’s been really great connecting with former classmates. It also just happens to be our 10 year high school reunion! Im not quite sure when that happened. Although, I’m pretty sure Janna’s wedding was its own mini reunion. Janna was the most laid back bride, I loved it! Janna and Brian were great to work with. Wedding preparations took place down the road at a local hotel. The couple was married in her father’s town at the First Parish Unitarian Church and the reception followed at Jones River Trading in Kingston, MA.
Janna had two different shoes to wear so we made sure to have a little fun with them. Thanks Adam for helping put this together!

Danielle & James: A Country Wedding

James and Danielle planned a most intimate wedding for themselves. They hosted the wedding right in their own backyard, with close family and friends.  Attention to details marked every aspect of this special occasion.  The ambiance was created using wildflowers arranged in unique vases in front of place settings using eclectic antique dinnerware.   They exchanged vows in the backyard against the serenity of the forest trees, shrouding an altar decorated with delicate paper hangings and fresh flowers.  This was a casual wedding with no bow ties but plenty of warmth and affection.  There were no special seating arrangements, except for James ‘best friend’ Neely his black lab, who took a seat right by the feet of the bride and groom for the entire ceremony.  The wedding was followed by a backyard BBQ and a regular ole-hoe-down.  James and Danielle, it was my pleasure to capture memories of your special day.  Here are a few of my favorites, including some of my favorite guest, Neely. Also,  thank you to Joline Richard for bringing me on to shoot their wedding.James’ best friend.

A Beautiful night to end an amazing day.
