During the first weekend of August, I had back-to-back weddings. Both of them were so different and yet so wonderful. One of the best parts about both of those days was that I got to work with my own wedding photographer, Cyneé, as my second shooter both days! The first of the weddings took place at Northampton Valley Country Club, where Samantha and Kevin exchanged their vows. Cyneé hung with the men at their getting ready spot while I photographed Sam’s beautiful gown and details at the venue. The girls arrived shortly after in adorable matching shirts with their hair and makeup complete! While Sam got ready in the bridal suite, surrounded by all the wonderful women in her life, Kevin and his guys made their way to the venue where they pinned on their boutonnières and waited for the first look. After showing her father her gown, Sam made her way to her soon-to-be hubby and watched with excitement as he broke into a wonderful smile. After portraits of their families, I rode on the back of their golf cart as they drove around to various spots of the venue before heading back to the suite to prepare for the ceremony. The weather was beautiful, the sun hiding behind clouds for the ceremony, after shining brightly all afternoon. She said “I do” and he did too! The guests headed into the cocktail hour and then reception and watched as the happy couple danced to “From the Ground Up” by Dan+Shay. The couple then listened to the toasts and blessing and shortly after their meal, made their way to the dance floor….and they barely left it the rest of the night!

Advice from the Bride
Wedding planning is definitely stressful and a test on your relationship. I am so grateful for a great husband who put up with my bride craziness! Take deep breaths and give yourself enough time to plan. I am a “do it myself” kind of person, so it was hard for me to let everyone help. But eventually I got there, and it made things much easier.
