Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast. -William Shakespeare

This couple embodies why weddings are so special.

I just want to share two small stories. Last New Year’s Eve at their engagement party, I overheard a guest (one of the groom’s close friends) talking to the groom’s mother. He thanked her for raising such a special son, such a genuinely kind and grateful person. He went on in great detail and it was quite possibly one the kindest tributes to a mother I have ever had the privilege to hear in person. It brought tears to my eyes. I remember thinking, “Wow, I hope one day someone says that to me (about the way I raised my children)!” So touching.

And then a few months ago at their engagement session, we asked the couple why they chose to get married Thanksgiving weekend. A heartfelt answer that discussed family, love, thanks and togetherness and how important that was to them. What better weekend to have a wedding than Thanksgiving weekend?

Two words come to mind when I think of Thanksgiving: gratitude and family and that was definitely the common thread of this absolutely lovely and loving wedding.


No detail was overlooked on this beautiful wedding day.  A special thanks to all the vendors that make photographing their hard work so easy!
