Erin and Evan's wedding was hands down amazing. This lovely couple planned and executed a beautiful event in less than 3 months, and did it with such calmness and grace. They were married at a new barn venue located in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. The farm was perfect for the laid back, outdoor fall wedding feel they were going for.
Erin and her girlfriends were getting ready in the farmhouse bridal suite at Rustic Rose. The farmhouse was build in the 1800's, but has been redone and has the perfect touch of elegance for a wedding. Erin's dress was entirely covered in lace, and had a beautiful choker neck line, just perfect for an autumn wedding.
Erin and Evan decided to do a first look. Evan waited to see his bride for the first time on an intimate wooded pathway, I could sense his excitement and anticipation. Erin looked stunning.
The ceremony was held on the bank of the Green River where a simple arch was accented with greenery. Stunning handmade signs were found throughout the wedding decor, made by Erin's very talented friend.
After the wedding a cocktail hour was held. Farm-to-table appetizers were passed to guests as they enjoyed good conversations and drinks.
The reception was held in the rustic horse barn of the venue. Guests were seated at large farmhouse tables that were made from re-purposed wood from the horse stalls of the barn. Green garlands lined the tables, and candles and marketplace lighting lit the venue creating a warm atmosphere. Last minute Erin decided to splurge and rent gold utensils instead of traditional silverware, I think it was totally worth it and looks gorgeous. Guests were treated to a delicious family style meal.
During the planning process I remember Erin and Evan asking if they could extend the reception an extra hour, they wanted to make sure they had ample time for dancing, and now I understand why. Not only did the newlyweds love to dance, but just about every guest at their wedding as well. Once people hit the dance floor they never stopped. I have photographed over 200 weddings and this was one of the best dance parties I have ever witnessed, it was so much fun. From group sing a longs, to a Michael Jackson Thriller performance this party had it all.

This little nugget is my son Axel at 7 days old.
Axel, my beautiful baby boy was born on October 10th of this year. I knew I wanted to document his first days in this world, and I think these photos are a testament to just how important it is for families to do just that. Giving birth is a very intimate event, yet such a special moment that you do want to remember and be able to share with friends and family. Having a photographer document your child's birth allows you to keep the moment intimate, yet still be able to share the magic of welcoming your newborn to your life.
I couldn't imagine actually photographing my child's own birth, but some of the special moments afterwards I was able to capture. I hope you enjoy the innocent moments of the first two days of my son's life, and his sister meeting him for the first time.
