Maggie & Chris’ wedding at the Boston Public Library was an ultra glamorous affair inspired by a favorite childhood book, The Secret Garden. From florals reminiscent of an English garden to the moss covered books stacked on tables to pop up paper love notes, every detail was sheer perfection. And that Oscar de la Renta gown…we truly have no words.
Stephanie has impeccable taste (Those lovely invitations? She designed them herself!), so there was no doubt that her wedding to Andrew would be beautiful, but it was also such a wonderful wedding just to BE at. The weather was perfect, the location was fabulous (we’ve been missing California vineyard weddings so this was a fun treat!), Stephanie and Andrew are totally smitten with each other, and their families and friends were ready to celebrate! Doesn’t get much better.

“We eloped and had a TINY wedding, immediate family only. It was perfect, but meant that the photography was of the utmost importance. We wanted to make sure we could share the details of the day with our friends and family who weren’t invited. The emotions of the day needed to jump out of the photographs, they needed to be honest and heart-felt. And, since it was going to be so small and intimate, we wanted to make sure our photographers were respectful, professional, and… just…nice. They were invited to our wedding when best friends and favorite aunties weren’t. They needed to feel like family right away. And, boy, did Sweet Monday deliver! April and Lindsey are the best. I could not be happier with how the photos turned out and how it felt to work with them day of (and every day leading up to!). There is no stronger recommendation that I can make- Sweet Monday is THE BEST.”

“April and Lindsey are incredibly talented and are both so sweet. We could not be happier with the photos from our wedding, and they captured the essence of our special day so beautifully. We have received countless compliments on the pictures!”
– Laura & Jason (See complete review on Wedding Wire)
“I am so thrilled with Sweet Monday Photography…We did both an engagement session and our wedding day with Sweet Monday and were over the moon with both. They are so professional, organized, responsible and overall just wonderful people. And so talented! …The lighting in all of them is gorgeous and they did such a great job of capturing our special moments without us even realizing they were near us. I have so many wonderful pictures of my husband and I stealing a kiss, or my dad reaching out for my hand as I walked outside or sharing a laugh with a bridesmaid. Just these perfect pieces of a memorable day. They really didn’t miss one single thing. I very, very highly recommend them. They go above and beyond, are a great value and are people you’ll be happy to share your wedding day with!”

We are so happy to be sharing Karin and Craig’s out-of-this-world dreamy autumn wedding at The Mount Edith Wharton’s estate in the Berkshires. As a novelist, this was certainly Karin’s dream wedding location, but it was also ours! We were in awe of the history, grandeur and just plain gorgeousness of The Mount. Every room was lovely – A wedding photographer’s dream! Karin did all the calligraphy for the invitations and place settings herself; a huge undertaking that paid off big time. She and Craig also had incredibly sweet vows, and the light rain that started during the ceremony honestly just made it even more romantic. Karin and Craig, what a day! We are so honored that we got to be part of it.
