Country Club Weddings
Where to even begin with Nicole and Dylan's gorgeous rustic wedding at the Mohegan Sun Golf Club last month. I was so excited when I showed up at Nicole's villa and meet all her amazing bridesmaids. Such a fun group of ladies. Nicole's Made of Honor did her makeup and I must say did a fabulous job at it too. I was in heaven and knew from the minute I walked in that the details for the rest of the day would not disappoint. Nicole left nothing out. She even got this beautiful custom hanger made for her wedding dress. It was truly like nothing I've ever seen before. Dylan is in the navy and I thought it was such a sweet touch that she added special charms to her garter. Of course Dylan had his own fun socks for the big day. I know Nicole was really planning for an outdoor ceremony but didn't let mother nature get her down. She was glowing with beauty in her Maggie Soterro gown and excitement to become Mrs. Berry. Kristin did a fabulous job officiating the ceremony. I really like when my couples have a family member officiate their wedding. It truly adds something unique to their wedding.
Nicole and her family made all the centerpieces and so many special details for the reception. They really put so much thought into everything. Nicole loves horse back riding and I thought it was so unique they even had a huge wagon wheel holding the place cards with mini close pins. That was by far my favorite detail. Oh and their cake was to dye for. I have to say its probably one of my most favorite cakes I've seen to date any any wedding. Chocolate Rose Bake Shop really out did herself with this one.
Nicole and Dylan's Bridal party was so much fun. The guys even played a little golf and showed off some tricks for Elana my second shooter while I was taking photos of the ladies. I probably could have photographed them and their beautiful bouquets all day long if we didn't have a reception to get to. McKennas Flower Shop did a beautiful job with the florals.
Once we had our fun out on the golf course it was time to enjoy the party with Ali from Karisma Events. She had the party going all night long. I hope to work with her again in the future. I mean she even had the our favorite guy we liked to call no pants man up dancing all night long. This sweet man was so funny because when he arrive at the wedding to change into his suit he realized well he forgot his dress pants. So he wore the top half of his suit and the bottom half was his shorts. It was hysterical but made for a funny memory. I would say Nicole and Dylan's wedding was a success and everyone had an absolute blast dancing the night away...
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day and making memories for a lifetime.

Sarah and James' wedding was nothing short of perfection. No detail was left out from the invitations to the matching bridesmaids hangers all the way to ending the night with a custom popcorn bar. Lorissa from Shuttle Meadow Country Club really took Sarah's vision and ran with the setup. I have to give her and her team so much credit for keeping the wedding running smooth. The wood was out of this world delicious. When Sarah told me she was going to have a live band in stead of a Dj I got so excited. I love when my couples have a live band. They really know how to keep the party going. Their day started off with a few tears but tons of smiles. James was a little nervous but I mean what groom doesn't have nerves before they get to see their beautiful bride walking down the isle. I just adore the little church they said their vows and exchanged their rings in. Once they shared their first kiss it was off the party. Bridal party photos were fun and then it was off to the gulf carts we went. I will never forget watching Sarah holding her huge bouquet going up and down the hills of the trails. The beautiful scenery overlooking the greens just made my heart smile. Sarah and James are naturals in front of the camera as I learned during our engagement session last fall. It was just so effortless taking photos of them. I literally could photograph them all day and night long. Shuttle Meadow Country Club is the perfect setting for some romantic images. My favorite part about their venue was that Sarah's parents also got married and had their reception at the club. It really made for such a special wedding memory. We even had fun recreating her parents favorite photo at the front door of the club. Of course we made a few memories of our own along the way.
I hope Sarah and James are enjoying their amazing honeymoon in the Mediterranean on a cruise. I can't wait to hear all about it when they return. Thank you again Sarah and James for allowing me and Elana to share in your gorgeous day!
