I am so excited to share this week’s blog! It is always an honor to be asked to photograph a wedding, but, it’s extra special when it’s a family member! I was absolutely thrilled when my cousin, Will, and his new wife, Ari, asked me to photograph their Sharon, MA summer wedding! It makes me incredibly happy to know they will have these beautiful memories to look back on for years to come.
Sharon, MA summer wedding
Will and Ari’s intimate family wedding took place over the summer in Sharon, MA at the Sharon Community Center. Ari looked absolutely breathtaking – she was an absolutely stunning bride. Her getting ready images are some of my favorites, and it was so much fun to watch her bridesmaids’ reactions when they first saw her. Her bouquet was a wonderful blend of whites, yellows, and light blues, which came together for the perfect summer floral arrangement. Ari’s bridesmaids wore beautiful dresses in a similar light blue color.
Will’s reaction to seeing Ari for the first time during their first look, was absolutely priceless. His genuine happiness and love for her is evident. He had the biggest smile! It was a joy to capture these intimate moments of them before their ceremony.
The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous!! Just beyond where the ceremony took place, there was a stunning view of the water. The romantic setting overlooking the water was matched by a heartfelt and emotional ceremony. Aside from the bride and groom, guests were drying their eyes as they listened to the vows exchanged. I may have shed a tear or two!
Ari and Will put a ton of effort into every detail of their wedding day. It paid off, because everything was elegant, classic, and beautiful. They merged two different cultures into their special day, weaving in details seamlessly.
Congratulations, Will and Ari! I am so incredibly happy for you! Thank you for allowing me to capturing your lovely Sharon, MA summer wedding! Enjoy just a few of my favorites from Will and Ari’s wedding day.
