Valery and Matt got married this past weekend! Yay! It was an absolutely beautiful day, and an absolutely beautiful wedding! Special thanks to my second shooter Shawn and my assistant Alan for all of their help, and for some of the shots seen below. We started the day at The Warren Conference Center in Ashland. Valery and Matt were both getting ready there, and from the minute I started shooting I knew it was going to be a fabulous day. I loved all of Valery’s yellow accessories (yellow is my favorite color to photograph), and I loved her hairpiece even more!
After everyone was ready and Valery and Matt had an extremely emotional first look, we all headed to the church for the ceremony.
After the ceremony and family group shots at the church, we headed to DeCordova Sculpture Park to take some photos of Valery and Matt, and their wedding party. It was really cold and gloomy on Saturday, but the entire crew braved the cold so we could take some cool photos in the park. Here are some of my favorites of Valery and Matt, my absolutely favorites being the ones toward the bottom with Valery wearing her sweater and scarf. To me those photos really sum up the day! Valery and Matt are so very in love, and I think those particular photos are the sweetest!
Here are some of my favorites of the wedding party. How I love the yellow! Doesn’t it make the photos feel warm despite its being so cold out?
There were tons of amazing (yellow!) details awaiting us when we got back to The Warren Center for the cocktail hour. Anyone could tell that Valery and Matt put a ton of thought and love into each and every detail, so I decided to showcase just a few of my favorites. My favorite being, of course, the yellow cocktail napkin that says “He is the cheese to my macaroni.” How cute is that?
Here are some photos from the first dance!
And finally some photos from the reception! This wedding was crazy – everyone was on the dance floor! People were dancing so much that the floor was actually bouncing up and down. It was awesome.
Congratulations Valery and Matt! Thank you so much for sharing your day with us – we all had a great time, and hope you are having a lovely time on you honeymoon! YAY!
