An intimate wedding surrounded by the closet of friends and loving family at Smith College located in Northampton Massachusetts.
The morning of Keri and Steven’s wedding was a total wash out. The heavy rain continued through their ceremony right up until they said “I do.” Not only did the rain come to an end just as their ceremony was ending, but the clouds moved away leaving us with the clearest blue sky for the rest of the evening.
Smith College Conference Center is located right near the gardens and green house which provided a gorgeous back drop to our bride and groom portraits. We spent time exploring the property while these two soaked up their time together.
And then it was time to party! Air guitar anyone?
Keri and Steven’s entire wedding day was full of laughs, positive vibes even through the storm, and over flowing with love!

Beautiful Summer Wedding at Avon Old Farms Hotel in Avon, Connecticut
Maria and Sam’s paths first crossed in a freshman dormitory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland in 2006. The two hit the ground running. Maria spent hours pouring over her biology and chemistry textbooks and studying late into the night. Sam took up the sport of rugby, joined the jazz band, and developed an affinity for Baltimore’s finest National Bohemian beer. In between their busy schedules, they found themselves chatting in the dorm hallways late at night on numerous occasions. When they returned from winter break in January, Sam was extremely “disappointed” to hear that Maria and her boyfriend in Brazil were no longer together. Soon enough, they found themselves growing fond of each other, and by the time May rolled around, Sam was no longer disappointed. They kept in touch over the phone that summer and the distance only brought them closer. They returned in the fall, and became inseparable over the next 3 years.
Upon graduating in 2010, the couple found themselves at a crossroads. Maria had been accepted to medical school in Virginia, and Sam had taken a job in Connecticut. They decided to stick things out. Though hundreds of a miles apart, they found a way to stay strong. There were many skype calls and weekend plane and train trips. Maria even made the 10 hour trip by car during her vacations, summoning the power provided by Harry Potter audio books and podcasts. When it came time for Maria to apply for a residency, they knew that they no longer wanted to live apart. Maria would need to apply for a work Visa which had the potential to make things very difficult for her application process. There was no doubt in Sam’s mind that Maria was the one for him, so over a routine skype session, he romantically suggested, “Why don’t we just get married?!” The two were wed in a small ceremony in July of 2013.
In June of 2014, Maria began her residency in Connecticut and after 4 long years apart, they would finally be able to share a home together in West Hartford, Ct. That home became even more complete less than a year later when Maria suggested they visit the CT humane society on a rainy day in March, “just to look”. Less than 24 hours later, Sam was driving home with a 3 month old pitbull in the backseat. Despite the destruction of many shoes, mail, and furniture, Olive, as they named her, has been the most wonderful addition.
Most recently, they have learned that they will be moving on to a new phase of their lives. Maria will begin a fellowship in reproductive medicine at Johns Hopkins starting in July of 2018, and so they’ll be heading back to Baltimore where it all began.
It is needless to say that the last 10 years have been quite an adventure. Sam and Maria are so thankful for the love and support they’ve received throughout this journey, from all of their family and friends. They are thrilled that they finally have the opportunity to celebrate their love for each other in the presence of all of those who mean the most to them on June 2nd, 2018.

A rustic backyard wedding is a perfect way to invite your guests into an intimate space that is uniquely you.
The bride, Abby, for this Clinton, CT backyard wedding not only made the rustic decor details for her big day, but she actually built these amazing wood pieces you see in this post. No, like really. While planning her big day she also found the time to build things.
She even made these pieces using free scrap wood someone local was looking to toss out. Total life goals.
You can check out more of Abby's work at Saplings Woodwork & Design.
Imagine exchanging your vows in front of this stunning altar with doors made up of reclaimed wood. The cascading flowers added an elegant touch.
You can entertain your wedding guests with a few rounds of Giant Jenga. Guaranteed for some laughs and fun competition.
Donuts and homemade apple pie are a great touch to end the evening on a sweet note. Adding homemade baked goods is lovely personal touch.
Small white pumpkin centerpieces are such an elegant touch and work wonderfully alongside the vibrant orange and red of Fall.
Apples are a lovely Fall element that often gets overlooked with wedding decor. Try pairing apples cascading down a statement piece made of refurbished wood alongside self-serve cold cider bar.
Olive oil looks dressed up when placed into small glass jugs and paired with spices such as rosemary. Add a personal touch with hand stamped wooden labels. A perfect "thank you" for your guests to take home.
Use large pumpkins to create jack-o-lanterns that have the Bride and Grooms initials carved into them. Smaller pumpkins make for a great Fall touch in this DIY "photo booth" area. Complete with a crate of glow stick accessories for guests to have fun with late into the evening.

Rescue puppies instead of bouquets
Becky and John were in the middle of planning for their wedding that would take place at The Litchfield Inn in Litchfield, CT, when their local rescue located in West Cornwall, CT The Little Guild had a post about some puppies needing a foster home.
A local resident posted on The Little Guild's Facebook page looking for a foster home for a litter of puppies that they found in their neighbor's yard. Becky and John saw the post and said to each other "We've raised baby piglets and cows before, so this can't be much different!"
They first started fostering two puppies from the litter named Penny and Patch. The puppies were so new that they couldn't stay home alone. Becky and John had to make a day trip to Cabelas to get some supplies for their honeymoon so the puppies joined along on their trip, snuggled up inside of a diaper bag in the shopping cart and having bottles in the car ride.
Soon after they started fostering 3 more puppies from the litter, Roley, Lucky and Freckles.
When Becky and John were switching the pups from milk to dog food, they got so covered in the food they would have to give them all baths every time they ate, multiple times a day. "It was mayhem," says Becky.
Becky and John were able to foster all of the puppies right up until they found their forever homes.
Including the rescue puppies in their big day was a no-brainer. Who needs bouquets when you can have puppies?!
Families who were interested in adopting the puppies submitted applications and references including a reference from their veterinarian. All of the puppies went to great homes shortly after Becky and John's wedding day.
Patch, who is now named Mo, found a home with John's aunt, so they are still able to visit with him.
Becky believes all of the incessant puppy cuddling they did while fostering them turned them all into great dogs.

Small intimate weddings tug at my heart strings. A familiar landscape filled with those dearest to your heart.
Abby and Jim's backyard wedding in Clinton, CT totally blew me away! Somehow between all of the planning that comes with your big day, Abby found time to incorporate her passion into her wedding day. All of the wooden structures you see, from her stunning backdrop she said her vows in front of, to the table decorated with apples and cider...Abby MADE. Like, by hand!! Is awesome is that?! All of the Autumn details of pumpkins and apples were perfect accents to craftsmanship.
Abby and Jim met at work and have been together for 7 years. They are total adventure junkies. Their most memorable date together was their first camping trip in
below freezing temps.
Their Wedding Day started with a First Look near the edge of the water. Abby's wedding dress was the perfect mix of elegant and simplify that goes so well with an intimate wedding.
Family and friends gathered on the lawn awaiting the Bride escorted by her father. Abby's mother was the justice of the peace and it was the perfect touch to their family filled Wedding Day.
The evening was filled with dancing, jumo Janga (yes, Abby made that as well!) paper lanterns and lots of love.
I am wishing Abby and Jim many, many more years filled with amazing adventures!
