On June 24th, 2017 Caleigh and Andy got hitched at Salem Cross Inn located in West Brookfield, MA.
OKAY, I KNOW what you are thinking.
Yes, this wedding is from June of 2017. But! There's a reason it's so late getting up on my blog.
Last wedding season I was pregnant my ENTIRE season with my first baby. My last wedding was in November, and I had my darling baby boy in the first week of January. He came three weeks early due to pregnancy complications that had me hospitalized for a couple of weeks before that. I was able to photograph all of my amazing clients and their families, get them their photographs in a timely fashion, and put together some kick ass books and albums for them to enjoy for years to come. I even sent stuff out from my hospital bed. BUT! Blogging? Eep... no. I had quite a hard time keeping up with it.
Now that my son is five months old and it's back to business as usual- plus one!- I want to catch up on some blogging from last season. So! As I was saying... the first one up is Caleigh and Andy's AMAZING Salem Cross Inn Wedding. On to the photos!
My kick ass second shooter Shannon Sorensen started out with Andy and his guys getting ready...
... while I started out with Caleigh and her ladies over at Salem Cross Inn.
The bride and her ladies wanted to recreate the now classic "Bridesmaids" pose. Well, so did the groom and his dudes!
"When we first started dating, Andy got a star registered in my name, and throughout our planning, we thought it would be lovely to incorporate a celestial theme to pay homage to that gesture. So we have lots of details that touch on the star and constellation theme." - Caleigh on their inspiration for their wedding decor and atmosphere.
Caleigh's grandparents Art and Nina were surprised with a special dance honoring them- as you can see the look of surprise on Nina's face- it was their wedding song. SO sweet!
I ask my clients many questions in a pre wedding questionnaire.. one of my favorite questions is about their wedding planning process. I asked them what their favorite part of planning their wedding was.
Their response? "Living room dance parties as we brainstormed our favorite wedding songs!"
This answer is totally them!
Happy anniversary, Caleigh and Andy! Shannon and I had such a fun time at your amazing wedding and I hope your first year of marriage was as fun and as full of love as the day you two said "I do!"
More 2017 weddings to come, as well as 2018 as wedding season has begun! Leave some love for Caleigh and Andy in the comments. Until next time..
