#CoupleOfBreaults (pronounced "bro") is just about my favorite wedding hashtag of all time and a prime example of what makes Brenna & Doug so wonderful. They are seemingly perfectly in sync with one another, quick to laugh, and totally easy to get along with. Their wedding was simple and positively beautiful at the lovely Tupelo Hollow Farm venue, a farm whose laid-back and simple beauty echoes the couple's love. It was my second time shooting there, and I was pumped to be back for such a wonderful day.
What do you get when you know almost the entire wedding party and adore every single one of them? A blog post with over 100 photos. I've known Hilary for, wow, 21 years and Chris for 12. They've been together for over 11 years and and married last month to the absolute joy of everyone who knows them. They are sincere, kind, and so damn hilarious. It just absolutely ruled to be there to witness their happiness and capture their wedding day.

Britt's sister, the maid of honor, began her wedding toast by saying, "I'm just curious, how many of you here tonight consider Britt & Jeff to be some of your best friends?" The entire wedding erupted in cheers.
Britt & Jeff are cool. Jeff would throw his championship WWE belt in the air while Britt smoked a cigarette in her flowered wedding dress and leather jacket. They're also incredibly kind, laid-back, and so, so genuine.
Their wedding was a DIY masterpiece and a true celebration of love, for one another and everyone surrounding them. I felt real lucky to be there to capture it.
I've known for Steph for 15 years. In the past year, in part due to her reaching out regarding wedding photography, we have reconnected, and I am so happy about it. Chris and she are a perfect match. They are kind, smart, and full of love for their families, their friends, humanity, and one another. Their rustic, mid-April wedding was met with cold winds, harsh sunlight, and a certainty that none of those things would mess with their day. From an orienteering course for their guests to Chris's family hopping in with the wedding band, their wedding was full of fun, full of love, and simply the best way to kick off my 2018 season. Cheers to two of the best!
Emily & Justin assured me I'd love Mexico, and wow. I really did.
But beyond falling in love with the gorgeous landscape, kind people & really cool culture, I got to witness one of the most stunning weddings of all time. 50 of their closest family & friends traveled down for the occasion and made me feel completely welcome. Emily made her dress, her accessories, the dresses of her bridesmaids & both mothers, her husband's suit, all of the favors, and all of the decorations, so there was a cohesive and intimate beauty in every detail.
And... I just think everyone should get to laugh this much on their wedding day. Justin and Emily have that really wonderful, really happy love. It was awesome to be trusted to capture it.

What a spectacular day to end my 2017 season on. Sarah & Dave have this wonderful, tight-knit group of family & friends that came together for a perfect day. From their intimate, beautifully-lit ceremony at the First Congregationalist Church in Marion to their lively, non-stop dancing reception at the Rosebrook Event Center, it was an honor to be there to capture it all!
Laura & Alex are magical. 14 years together have earned them an obvious deep understanding of and everlasting appreciation for one another. They had an intimate ceremony at a historic church that didn't even have electricity, followed by a dance-heavy reception at a place near & dear to their hearts, Just Right Farm. This was a real special one.
Full Disclosure: Jenn is my cousin. I've photographed friends' weddings before, but shooting a family wedding is very different. These photos, like others, are full of sentimentality, emotion and love, but in a way that is very new to me. Congratulations, Jenn & Junior - I adore you both.
Despite weather forecasts, Alyssa & Ryan wound up with a truly gorgeous August day on Easton Beach in Newport, RI, followed by a night of non-stop dancing at the Rotunda Ballroom. They both spent nearly the whole night laughing on the dance floor, and it was an honor to get to be there and capture it their joy.
