When my friend, Mike, reached out to me a little over a year ago and asked if I would be interested in photographing his wedding I was through the moon! We've known each other since our college days and I've always been impressed by how smart, talented, and witty he is. He's just one of those guys who lights up a room as soon as he walks in. And when I got to finally meet Jess? Well she just might shine brighter than him ;) She's a passionate and gifted educator who loves vegan cooking, literature, and artisan goods. These two are a perfect match, and their love story could bring a tear to the eye of even the most hardened sceptic. 

We got together a few months ago to catch up on life and to talk wedding plans. These two share so many passions and they really wanted their day to reflect who they are as a couple. They told me all about their plans to host their intimate wedding at their home on Cape Cod with the ceremony in the front yard and the reception in the back. I'm happy to report that they totally nailed it! Themes of literature, golf, art, education, and cooking were all subtly woven into their warm September wedding. Every detail of the day was provided by an incredible collection of local vendors. This intimate wedding was an absolute dream...

I'm sitting here in my apartment on a Sunday morning having a really hard time accepting that I'm heading back to the real world tomorrow. I still have salt in my hair, sand in my phone case, and this strange craving for conch fritters. I've got the worst case of the Sunday Scaries of my whole life because I just got back from the trip of a lifetime.

My three best friends and I took off on a week long vacation to the tropics and it far surpassed my expectations. We saw no lines, no traffic, and no crowds of any kind. The roads were (very) bumpy, the locals were friendly, and the views spectacular. We enjoyed a beach that was completely void of other people: it was so relaxing that you could literally fall asleep in the "backyard" on the beach, naked, and totally alone. Each day we woke up early, swam before 9am, and took off on an island adventure.

 

On day one we arrived by small plane just in time for sunset. We disembarked at the airport on the northern most point on the island and then made our drive south, stopping on the way to take a few photos.

On day two I woke up just before sunrise because I was too excited to be in the ocean. I sat on the back porch of our house and waited for the sun to rise. To say it was peaceful would be an understatement.

On day three we took off in the morning on a road trip to the southern most point of the island. Our destination was Lighthouse Point, a secluded seaside paradise that requires a fair amount of off-roading to discover. We stopped in to a few "hot spots" along the way including a roadside farm, a local bakery, and a few geo attractions. When we got to our final destination where greeted by the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Enjoy :)

Day 5 was "Rainbow Beach Day". We decided to stay local and hit one of the beaches located 5 minutes down the road from the house. We had breakfast and then packed up our snorkeling gear, a few good books, and some mimosa ingredients and took off on a fun and relaxing day in the ocean. This was one of the busier beaches that we saw on our trip and there were only 7 other people- not bad! Rainbow Beach was rad because of the great snorkeling conditions, the beach combing, and the little picnic tables complete with their own palm frond umbrellas. It was almost too perfect. Almost.

Day 6 was a big day. We started off by driving to the north end of the island, about an hour and a half away, and took a ferry ride to Harbor Island. This little town was absolutely gorgeous: it's covered in brightly colored houses, road-side businesses, seafood restaurants, and completely surrounded by pristine white sand beaches. Harbor Island definitely has more going on than the main island of Eleuthera but is by no means a built up destination. We rented a golf cart (the main means of transportation on that island) and cruised around feeling as if we had traveled back in time.

After returning back to Eleuthera we made our way to The Sapphire Blue Hole. My friend had been there before but it’s still tricky to find even if you’ve made the trip in the past. Despite it’s elusive location this place was one of the brightest highlights of my trip. I’m telling you, the photos don’t do it justice. And as I’m sure you can imagine, I don’t like to say that kind of thing very often :)

Now, let’s talk Blue Holes. Because I’m not a geologist, I’m going to let Wikipedia do the talking for me here:

“A blue hole is a large marine cavern or sinkhole, which is open to the surface and is composed of a carbonate bedrock (limestone or coral reef). Blue holes typically contain tidally-influenced water of fresh, marine, or mixed chemistry.”

To paint a more clear picture: imagine driving down a long dirt road into a tropical forest and coming across a large electric blue lake that's a full 30 foot drop from where you’re standing. You can see right to the bottom of the more shallow edges of the hole but in the center all you see is pure dark blue. You can’t tell how deep it is, you can only imagine. The jump down is daunting and the only way out is by scaling the side of the very step and jagged sharp coral edges of the water’s opening. Breathtaking.

Preacher’s Cave is just a short ride down the road from the Sapphire Hole, so we visited there after our adventurous swim. According to historical record, the original inhabitants of the island sought shelter in these caves. They were incredibly impressive.

As soon as we got back in the car the sky opened up and the rains came. The afternoon showers covered the countryside and created rainbows on the scenic drive. We stopped along the way to buy coconuts and conch salad from a few locals and then headed to a small outdoor restaurant for live music, fish tacos, and margaritas. It was a perfect day.

I can’t put in to words how much I love these women and how grateful I am to have them in my life. 

Here’s my final recommendation: go to Eleuthera. Whether you’re going for your honeymoon or going with friends, you’ll have the time of your life. I stayed in a little house called Bonefish Barbi’s Beach Bungalow, and it was absolute perfection. If you have any questions please let me know, I am happy to talk Bahamas any time!

First of all: this was easily one of the most fun weddings I've ever been a part of.

And secondly: It rained harder than I have ever seen. Seriously, it was like something out of a movie, the kind of weather that you remember for years to come. That said, we were able to steal a few moments outside at the end of the day to get some beautiful photos of the bride and groom. So if rain is your biggest fear about your wedding day, I say "forget it" because this wedding proves that even on a rainy day beautiful images can be made! And despite the rain, the thing that I'll remember  most about this day was how much fun their reception was- I've never seen such an energetic dance floor!

I've known the bride, Kirsten, for years and to say that she is the life of the party would be an understatement. She's so full of life and kindness, you can feel her positive energy immediately. Brad and Kirsten are such perfect foils to one another: his steadfast calmness is offset by Kirsten's bold nature. They share a lot in common too, most notably that they are both deeply loved and valued by their many friends and family members. Their wedding was intimate, personal, emotional, hilarious, and full of love.

I hope you enjoy reliving their day.

Leah and Alex's wedding at The Windsor Mansion Inn was absolutely spectacular and had me and my second shooter both swearing that we would want to get married there ourselves! I can't say that I'm surprised that Leah and Alex chose this location for their wedding, it perfectly reflected their love of the mountains and the great outdoors. These are so clearly made for each other: On their first date they had strangers asking how long they had been married!

Cheers to the happy couple!

Ok, so this one was really incredible! Margaret and her mother, Mary, planned every detail together- and they did it all long distance! They managed to create a beautiful seaside, airy wedding that was both relaxed and glamorous. Margaret and Gary are both super creative, so it's no wonder that the day was filled with intricate detail. Enjoy!

Leah and Alex's Engagement Session

When Leah first asked me if I would be down to meet her and her fiance, Alex, at the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, I knew I had met my match! I love a unique setting for a photo session and I'm a total nerd for all things spooky! This was a super fun project to collaborate on, and I can't wait for the wedding this September!

Colleen and Reed's Wedding

Colleen and Reed's wedding was a true honor to be a part of. These two have been friends of mine through our many years in Killington, and from the first time I met them I knew they would be together forever. They've gone on countless adventures together, hiking, climbing, skiing, and setting up camp all over the country. I have no doubt that they'll be continuing the tradition of being each other's best adventure companion for year to come!

Hannah and Alex's Cape Cod Wedding

I must admit, the most difficult part of putting together this blog entry is articulating how much these two people love one another. 

So, I decided to let Hannah do the talking on this one:

"It was two years ago tonight that Alex returned home from his deployment in Afghanistan. It is as vivid a memory as one could possibly be. Their arrival was set for 2am. An entire gymnasium full of excited children, anxious wives and husbands, mothers and fathers, tirelessly waving American flags between their nervous fingers. I admired the interactions between families, smiling and crying, hugging each other in celebration. I watched as people readied themselves, fussing with the children’s hair, fussing with their own, sitting and then standing and then sitting again, completely unsure of their preference. It felt as if I was looking in on someone else’s life, certainly not my own. I was suddenly captured in this beautiful bubble that was pressing at the seams, about to explode with emotion. And then they came home… when he walked in the room I had almost completely forgotten that this wasn’t something I was just bearing witness to, it was actually happening to me. The entire year apart, every struggle and every concern, just buzzed out of focus. This was one of those moments that you keep every second of, the kind of moment that changes a person. What can I say, it just gives me the feelies." -Hannah, words shared in July of 2016

I can't help tear up when I read that.

They held their wedding at their home in Welfleet Massachusetts. Hannah and Al's personality is dripping all over this day: the references to his career as a fisherman, her rustic-chic style, and their mutual love of music was everywhere. They made every detail personal and unique, and I loved every second of sharing their day! 

And keep your eye out for their amazing hand-made arbor! 

Hannah knew how nervous Alex would be, so she surprised him by spontaneously changing her processional song to his favorite: Soul Finger! She and her parents danced down the aisle, and Al couldn't keep the smile off his face 

The reception was a fisherman's dream! They created a seaside buffet complete with vintage seascape paintings and reclaimed glass-wear.

After cocktail hour they made a quick get-away to the beach in a Mustang convertable

And then it was time for emotional speaches, hilarious toasts, and lots of dancing!

When Sarah told the story of how Al "got the girl":
