JACKIE AND HARRISON'S OUTDOOR WEDDING AT AUGUST MOON IN THE BERKSHIRES

There was no lack of love, happiness or smiles at Jackie and Harrison's wedding. The two have been together since high school, and have everything going for them. After dating for 9 years they decided to tie the knot with all of their friends and family there to celebrate with them. August Moon was the perfect venue for what they envision, a weekend of outdoor fun and hanging out. The house and adjacent garage allows friends and family to stay on site, and the beautiful forest and fields make for amazing photos.

JEN AND KATIE'S COUNTRY HOUSE WEDDING IN THE BERKSHIRES

When I met with Jen and Katie, the recurring "theme" of their "dream wedding" was that their guests felt welcome and taken care of throughout the entire weekend.  They wanted to create an intimate setting where they could spend the most important day of their lives with the most special people in their lives.  And despite the chilly temps and light drizzle of the late September day, the warmth of this group was what stood out the most.

ASTRID AND ELI'S WEDDING IN THE BERKSHIRES

I love when a camp wedding crosses my desk. Not because “camp” automatically fills my head with sweet childhood memories, but because it’s another opportunity to show people that camp weddings aren’t about obstacle courses, bunkhouses and mess halls! In the Berkshires, so many of our famed summer camps are located on grounds with breathtaking vistas and gorgeous large buildings…perfect for large crowds. And yes, the grounds do also have bunkhouses, cottages and cabins, but this is part of what makes a camp wedding a perfectly logical choice for a destination wedding!

Savana and Justin found me through the Berkshire Wedding Collective. They put their wedding together in three months. They booked the space, they booked me, they booked everything in such a short time. They’ve been together for several years, but when they decided to get married they wanted to do it quickly. And they did it beautifully! They knew what they wanted, and I was impressed.

ERIN AND JONATHAN'S INTIMATE WEDDING IN THE BERKSHIRES

A word from Tara: When this real wedding submission crossed my desk, I was instantly smitten (I'm a sucker for tea length dresses and a vintage bicycle with a basket)!  I loved the bright, vibrant colors and the intimacy of it all.  There's just something to be said for a wedding that includes only your immediate family and closest friends.  And between this creative bride and the Federal House Inn, the adorable details are to die for!

ELLEN AND TOM'S WEDDING AT MASS MOCA

A word from Liz: I was pretty psyched about Ellen’s wedding because it was taking place at one of my favorite places in the Berkshires: Mass MoCA, where I have been many times (come to think of it, I should really reactivate my membership). Since Ellen was getting hitched surrounded by the bright geometric colors of the Sol LeWitt exhibition, we opted for a neutral eye with plenty of individual lash clusters, and a flush of berry on the lips. The perfect mix of classical beauty amidst contemporary art!

MELISSA AND MIKE'S GEDNEY FARM WEDDING

We always love a good barn wedding, and this sweet event at Gedney Farm doesn't disappoint!  For those of you who are unfamiliar with Gedney Farm, it's a beautiful renovated barn (two, actually!) in the tiny village of New Marlborough, Massachusetts...tucked away in a remote corner of the Berkshires.  I've always felt like the weddings held here are in a world all their own...with no cell service (or GPS!), the couples who marry here are able to have their guests fully present, and it truly makes for a special, intimate affair.

Alix and Matt are amazing together, it was very clear to me when I joined them at their place in Hoboken NJ for their engagement session that they love having fun together. Their love and their friendship were evident right away.  I loved being a part of their day and capturing all the love of friends and family that surrounded them. Alix's dad even made me cry - twice!!

LAUREN & BRIAN'S NEW YEAR'S EVE WEDDING

I loved all the seasonal touches that the bride and groom included in their celebration. The glow of small candles made every room festive and the soft gray and white palette of flowers was stunning. The antique silver clocks hinted at the countdown that awaited later that evening.

However it was how sweetly Lauren and Brian looked at each other that the real beauty of their wedding came through. Small stolen moments, like how Lauren would squeeze Brian's hand tight and then he couldn't resist giving her a kiss. I could feel the love and happiness they were feeling as they shared this New Year's Evening with the people they loved so much.

LISA & SAM'S OCTOBER WEDDING IN LENOX MA

Sam and I knew we wanted to get married near his family's cottage in Stockbridge. Sam's family has been going to the Berkshires over the summer for generations, and I grew up in Massachusetts, so it is a very special place for both our families.

Some of our favorite times together when we were dating were visiting his family in the Berkshires--hiking, eating and touring the old mansions in the area. As soon as we toured The Mount we knew it was the right spot for us--we loved the idea of hosting all our family and friends in such a beautiful, grand house that also felt intimate and cozy.
