Craig & Sandy’s winter wedding in Woodstock, Vermont was a most magical weekend! I’m so happy to finally be able to share these photos with you, after waiting with much excitement and patience for their recent feature on Martha Stewart Weddings!

Woodstock is about as romantic as you can get, any day of the week, but when a snowstorm hit on Friday of their wedding weekend, we knew we were in for the very best! I know you guys probably don’t want to talk about it right now, but I LOVE all things winter in Vermont! My friend Alicia and I bundled up and hit the roads early – no strangers to crazy wedding adventures together (that one time I had 5 hours notice to get on a plane to South Africa…)!

And who better at the other end than Craig and Sandy, and their incredible friends and family! The minute I met these guys for their engagement photos on the beach, I knew they were the kind of huggable, laughter-inducing friends you want in your circle at all times. No amount of snow would ever slow down this adventure and celebration – it just added to the warmth and love all around them.

See what I mean about Woodstock? These hearts weren’t related to Craig and Sandy’s wedding at all…. just your average burst of love in the town square!

They said “I Do!” and guests walked the beautiful streets back to the Woodstock Inn. The warmth of cocktails, laughter and dancing promising a fantastic celebration ahead!

Their decor was filled with vintage and wintery details, including calligraphy from Julie Song Ink. Guitarist Vinnie Leddick helped welcome everyone to the celebration.

Dancing with their parents – among the best I’ve seen!

Wishing Craig and Sandy all the VERY best in their lifetime ahead together, and a huge congrats on the baby they are about to welcome into this beautiful life! Thank you for inviting me in to this incredible winter wonderland of yours!

Jeremy and Melanie came down from Toronto to celebrate their destination nuptials this August!

It was such an honor to stand with them among an intimate group of family and their pups! And it really doesn’t get much more beautiful than a backdrop of Great Marsh in Sandwich, MA. We took some time to walk along the Sandwich Boardwalk and Town Neck Beach after their ceremony and then they were off to dinner.

Stylish and adorable, congrats on a beautiful day, Melanie and Jeremy! I hope you had an incredible trip down to Cape Cod, and we’d love to have you back as your family grows!

Thanks for stopping in to keep in touch! I can’t wait to share more from Melanie & Jeremy’s Cape Cod elopement above!

This coming weekend I’ll be assisting London photographer Kate Murphy for a Massachusetts wedding – it’s always a very welcome opportunity to assist and dig into some extra creativity when the pressure is somewhat off!

And I’ve been running my butt off in preparation for what will be my first marathon this October! Eeeek!

Hope your August has been a blissful one!

Katie and Brian shared a most special weekend on Martha’s Vineyard for their July wedding at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown!

I’ve gotten to know these guys quite well over the last year, first visiting their home in Western MA and then adventuring over to the Vineyard for their ferry engagement photos this past fall. It made it so fun to reach their wedding day and feel like I was celebrating right alongside them!

An absolutely beautiful day, and no better than to sneak in a huge hug with Becca from Petal Floral Design! She worked her magic with such a lovely bridal bouquet, flowers for the ladies and gents, and a positively adorable crown and wand for the flower girl!

And here’s where I introduce you to Audrey, Brian’s beautiful six-year old daughter and now deep within Katie’s heart as well. She also happens to have been the life of the party on the dance floor – those sweet little ballerina toes dancing to the likes of Blurred Lines!

I was six years old on the day of my own parents’ wedding, so watching Audrey on this day brought a special smile for me too.

We snuck out for a little sunset walk down to the lighthouse in Edgartown, which always makes for some sweet, relaxed, pressure’s-off kind of photos at the end of the day :-)

Katie, Brian (and Audrey!), I wish you a huge congratulations on this exciting and beautiful adventure together! Your thoughtfulness in incorporating everyone – including me – in your celebration was so warming. An amazing day, and you will have an amazing life ahead together! XO

    Rev. Kathleen Geagan - Stacey,

    What a joy to come upon these photos. It was so great to preside over Brian and Katie’s wedding and to work with you! They were such a great couple and their daughter, Audrey, was darling.

    This wedding was so heartfelt and at the same time so hilarious and, as always, you captured it with your lens.

    Lovely,
    Rev. Kathleen Geagan

Gia and Ilia planned their destination wedding at The Reefs in Southampton, Bermuda this July!

What an absolutely beautiful weekend it was, and they – and their friends and family – could NOT have been more welcoming of me and my husband. We felt like old friends, and that’s certainly my favorite way to get the best, most authentic photos!

Boston natives themselves, they originally began planning a local wedding – but Gia and Ilia just felt right about stealing off to a destination location with their closest loved ones. I think every guest could feel the simple, effortless love they have, both for each other and for everyone present. No stress, just pure happiness. Something everyone deserves on their wedding day!

Gia wore Ilia’s great-grandmother’s jewelry – how amazing!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with local Boston design studio Paper Moss on such a stunning invitation suite! And the gorgeous bouquet by Petals in Hamilton, Bermuda.

LOVE this umbrella-drink name card idea! [pinit]

… And the most rockin’ dance floor, not a care at all to the humid Bermuda weather! Love it!

Gia and Ilia, there are definitely no words for how much Gary and I love you guys! Thank you for being so incredibly generous and welcoming, and we will certainly savor our memories with you in Bermuda for a long time to come! We look forward to catching up with you soon again in Boston, and maybe some of those wildly awesome friends and family of yours too ;-) CONGRATULATIONS!
