Salem Cross Inn Wedding, West Brookfield, Massachusetts
Another wedding at Salem Cross Inn yay!! Since I travel everywhere for weddings, it’s so rare that I end up at the same venue more than once - especially not in the same year! This wedding was every kind of beautiful.
We started the day off at this bed and breakfast nestled in the woods of Warren, Massachusetts called Laurel Ridge. I wasn’t sure if I had the place since traveling down a dirt road for awhile can make you question a lot of things. But it was SO worth it when I rolled up to it. It was the most perfect summer getaway, made entirely of logs and full of personality. This is where Holly and her girls got ready, but mostly hung out together enjoying the beautiful day. While most weddings are full of craziness, chaos, and excitement, Holly and her bridesmaids and family were the epitome of relaxation and peace. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so de-stressed at a wedding! (or seen so many adorable farm animals)
I headed over to Salem Cross Inn for the ceremony and reception, and the atmosphere was something so special. Succulents on every table, so many colors and flowers in bloom, a guitarist strumming along under the gazebo. Friends and family wandered in, full of anticipation. Roland was there in the center of all of it, so completely excited to be about to marry the love of his life.
Salem Cross Inn, as always, provided the most colorful and unique backdrop for the festivities to take place. I could spend all day shooting here!
I can’t believe how fast the rest of the day flew by. So many happily shed tears, emotions, spontaneous musical performances, choreographed dances. Everything flowed so perfectly. My favorite moment was when Holly and Roland threw on some aprons, set themselves up on front of a MASSIVE pile of whipped cream, and dished it out to their guests’ slices of pie. Can we make this a new tradition please?!
