We have very quickly developed a MAJOR love for the Berkshires. It began with our trip there for Karin and Craig’s wedding last fall and grew even bigger after Fanny and Brian’s wedding at the outstanding Wheatleigh Hotel. This place is just crazy gorgeous and was the perfect backdrop for Fanny and Brian to celebrate with their funny and sweet group of family and friends.
So… we were all a bit surprised when we showed up to Stephanie and Andrew’s orchard engagement session to find that there was no fruit of any kind in season yet! Oops! But it gave us the perfect excuse to wander some of the hidden spots of Eckert’s and enjoy having the place completely to ourselves. These two are easy company, and the light was beautiful! Stephanie and Andrew, we can’t wait for September at Chandler Hill!
If it’s true that rain on your wedding day brings good luck, then Lauren & Nelson have a lifetime’s worth of luck stocked up after the thunderstorm that pelted down upon us on that otherwise lovely day in May. Thankfully, the storm was quick and cleared off just in time for us to get some sweet portraits outside on the gorgeous grounds of The Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate. It was such a blast, with some especially hilarious and heartfelt toasts, and we are so honored to have been included in such a special day. Congratulations, Lauren & Nelson!

I was so happy to finally get to meet Beth and Bill in person a couple of weeks ago, and have a chance to explore Lafayette Park with them – It’s such a little gem in our city! April and I are very much looking forward to their wedding day at City Cottage this fall (on my birthday, in fact!).
