Intimate winter weddings are right at the top of my list. Everything about it is cozy. J & B’s wedding was all sorts of cozy and so so elegant. She wore a dress that was shimmery. It moved like it was tiny little waves coming into shore at a lake. His suit was accented with details like his tie clip that J had specially ordered and engraved with their wedding date. Her bouquet was simple elegance in all the right ways. It was the goldilocks of bouquets, just right. It had a satisfying shape that framed J’s dress , accenting the shape of her strapless cut. And the bouquet colors were perfectly paired to highlight J’s non-traditional, non-white dress.
The day was during buckets of rain but fortunate for them they got married at Seven Hills which even on a nice days you are going to want to take advantage of the indoor decor. My favorite little nook ended up being a white fire place with decadent seats fit for a queen and the light was bouncing off the mirrors and rain splattered windows. This was also where we opted for the first look. Allowing for an effortless flow from J’s getting ready room right to B. I’m very intentional about creating sensible flow for the wedding day, we want it to feel very natural and not forced.
From the first look we flowed right into their couple’s photos, taking advantage of the architecture, pianos, epic windows, libraries, velvet chairs and couches that Seven Hills boasts. Shortly after the night seamlessly transitioned into the ceremony. Surrounded by about 40 of their closest family and friends J&B were married. They shared personal vows and each had one of their siblings standing by their side. The night continued on with family photos and into a first dance for the pair and then dinner served by No10 of Great Barrington. This winter wedding was every bit as special as I had imagined it would be. Thank you J&B for inviting me into your family for a few hours to document this moment in your lives. Truly an honor.
