Emily and Eddie’s Red Barn Wedding.

What an amazing time we had photographing Emily and Eddie’s wedding at the Red Barn last summer. Now is a perfect time of year to look back and think about warmer weather.

Let’s find out more about the two of them from Emily.

Sister-in-law and I were pledging a sorority and she had a party at her parent’s house while they were out of town. I saw his picture on the wall and was hooked! It took 5 years before the “stars aligned” and it was meant for us to date!

One week before Christmas at Nubble lighthouse York Maine My family was stationed on the lighthouse for 2 years during my dads coast guard career. He was the last keeper before they automated. The lighthouse has held a special place in our hearts and we try to visit once every few years. Christmas time they put lights up so we wanted to go. He proposed down on the rocks… totally unexpected! Glad he didn’t drop the ring as I freaked out!

The fun casualness! We wanted everyone to be comfortable and relaxed. Also every decoration and detail was handmade by either us or our family members! That made it even more special!

We did not see each other before the wedding and I’m happy because the feeling of him seeing me as I walked down the aisle was exactly how I imagined it growing up! I did my first look with my father instead and I’m so happy I did that it made him feel special also!

Absolutely amazing! Greg and his team made us feel so comfortable. Even with the craziness of all our family wanting photos Greg went above and beyond accommodating everyone while still spending time and getting us the perfect shots we wanted. He even used some of his yoga planking skills to get awesome shots due to the rain and ground beign wet! I cant wait to see how the night time photo came out! We will definitely be using Greg in the future for the next adventures in our life!
Here are just a few of the amazing wedding professionals that made their day so smooth.

Lord Jeffery Inn Wedding Photography with Tammy and Steve.

I’ve got another fabulous wedding for you guys today! The happy couple consists of Tammy and Steve, two people that were surrounded by love.

You could really tell their wedding was all about family. Let here about their wedding straight from Tammy.

He took me to Race Point at Cape Cod the day after Christmas 2016. Race Point is a very special place for our family. We have vacationed there for many years. It was a cold December day on the beach. We got bundled up and went out looking for sea glass on the beach. As you can imagine it was pretty deserted. We meandered along separately for a bit. He then comes up to me with his hands cupped and said “look at the piece of sea glass I found”. As I look over to him he gets down on one knee and proposes! It was absolutely perfect. We then decided to head into P – Town to find a spot for dinner. As we are briskly walking down the street to find something open it occurs to me how magical the town was that evening…December 26th streets are empty, its cold, the signs above the stores squeaking in the breeze, very few places open. We find an open piano bar and quickly duck in out of the cold. In our excitement we tell our story to the bartender and the sole customer sitting at the bar. We cheer in celebration! It was perfect and made a place already very special to our hearts even more special.

Having the family together. Ours was a marriage of two families coming together after 12 years. All of our adult children and grandchildren participated in the ceremony. It was about all of us not just Steve and I.
How would you describe your overall wedding experience?
Our overall wedding experience was amazing. I had a fabulous 10 months planning our special day. I enjoyed every second of it. The venue and all of the vendors were top notch / best in class. I can’t say enough good things about all of them….Lord Jefferies, Greg Moss Photography Shaw Santanello (Viren Entertainment), Forget me not florist, and JP- Mikki Viereck.
What photography-related advice would you offer to a couple?
Give thought to what your trying to capture in pictures and communicate it to your photographer. There were specific pictures, moments in time that I wanted Greg to capture. Not only was he able to capture every shot on our list but he was able to capture the emotion of the moment and some very special candid shots.

Okay, let’s get to the pictures! Tammy and Steve were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come.

Elise and Jonathan are just the nicest couple you can meet. I enjoyed working with them and photographing their wedding so much, it was just a good time. Of course I have enjoyed photographing every wedding I have photographed in Western Mass and this one was no different.

 

Elise and Jonathan decided to have their first look before the ceremony which I am sure they found very helpful on a couple of levels.

The first off which this gave them more time for their Bridal portraits which in turn gave them more time to enjoy their Cocktail hour. I don’t think they are alone in wanting to attend their cocktail hour, I hear this as a concern from many of the couples I meet with that are planning their wedding day schedule.

The second benefit from having the first look before the ceremony is that it reduces a ton of stress. Once Elise saw Jonathan before the wedding she was so much more relaxed and was able to enjoy the wedding that much more. It so much easier to see each other for the first time when you don’t have all the eyes from the ceremony on you.

Unless you have a strict traditional belief on not seeing each other before the ceremony then I would highly recommend the first look before the ceremony.

Elise and Jonathan’s wedding was my first wedding reception at the Lord Jeffery Inn. The Staff was so helpful and what a beautiful historic looking building.

Having been an Executive Chef for well over a decade before I moved to Western mass and photographing weddings full time I tend to be a little critical of wedding food. The portions were not huge, although the right size for me, the quality was amazing. The beef was extremely tender and flavorful. I can’t wait to stop by for Sunday Brunch some time, after talking with Elise and Jonathan they said it was also incredible!

Okay Let’s see some photos.
