Jenny & Stephen // A Wedding at Salem Cross Inn, Massachusetts
Have you ever met someone so genuine that every emotion they felt, you felt it too? That's Jenny and Stephen. Every bit of laughter or tear that was shed was just echoed around the room and landed on the hearts of everyone in attendance. From Jenny excitedly running outside in the morning and clapping her hands when the sun finally peaked out, to Stephen wiping away a tear as Jenny's father walked her down the aisle, to the stomach-aching laughter at the groomsmen's antics on the dancefloor, every emotion was so real and so tangible.
I think a lesson can be learned from this couple- even though there's a camera around, never hesitate to show your emotions. It truly is the most beautiful part of being human.
Though it started off as a gloomy day, the rich colors of the flowers and scenery at their house in eastern Connecticut made everything feel a bit lighter and brighter.
That moment you realize you're a bride.
Jenny's sister Missy was such an integral part of the wedding and her infectious smile made everyone's day so much richer.
For Jenny, the most important part of the day before the ceremony was the first look with her father. So perfect and adorable.
The views at this place!! The light! I was in heaven<3 Salem Cross Inn, you're doing something very very very very right.
The Salem Cross Inn was so unique to anything I had ever seen before. So different and beautiful. I felt like I was on a pirate ship or something! Loved it.
This was a flower girl after my own nerdy heart with all her Star Wars gear.
After longingly looking out at the incredible light for about half an hour, I got to steal Jenny and Stephen away from the party to enjoy the last of the sunlight.
LOOK AT THIS PLACE.
LOOK AT THOSE COWS AND HORSES.
LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUS COUPLE.
The love shared between Jenny and her father is something beautifully indescribable.
Jenny and Stephen, I'm so happy I not only got to be your photographer, but got to witness the incredible love between the two of you as well as your families. You are such an example of how important it is just to let yourself feel and be human. On your wedding day, the light that surrounded you two impacted everyone there and I imagine everyone left with a smile on their face. I know I did. It's days like yours that reminds me: this is exactly why I do what I do.
