lindsay + jeff (wedding)
on may 30th, i had the privilege of shooting the wedding of a college friend named lindsay and her fiance jeff. i knew from the start it was going to be a small, intimate ceremony on the beautiful grounds of tanglewood in lenox, massachusetts. i loved how these guys thought outside the box and made the day fully theirs- from the location to the colors to size of the crowd. i think the final head count was 19, including myself as photographer and the pastor who married the two of them. i think every single person attending could say that an amazing time was had.
the night before, jeff and lindsay's families hosted a fun cookout at the house they were renting for the weekend. tons of food and an opportunity to get to know everyone who'd be at the wedding on saturday.
the next morning, everyone began getting ready to head over to tanglewood. the flowers were done by the bride, and she did an amazing job!
jeff and lindsay both looked amazing... and they seemed pretty happy to be getting married. :)
after a slight scare when a perfect weather forecast turned to 30% chance of rain, the day of the wedding they were ridiculously blessed with an absolutely stunning day.
LOVE this moment right after they were pronounced husband and wife:
something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. :)
the scenery was incredible! we spent so much time after the ceremony wandering around to different corners of tanglewood taking photos. kind of a dream for a photo junkie like me. :) later, we went over to a restaurant in town for some great food and conversation. the bride and groom added many personal touches to the reception site, such as the beautiful centerpieces they put together themselves, and the personalized placecards made from a photo of the person who'd be sitting in each spot.
lindsay and jeff- it was so awesome to be a part of your wedding. incredibly fun with gorgeous surroundings, and it was so moving to see the love and deep friendship between the two of you. congratulations! :)
