I photographed Joe & Darius’s rehearsal dinner and brunch on their wedding weekend in the Berkshires. What made these events even more fun was working with so many of my wedding artist friends from the Berkshire Wedding Collective. We had a dream team for the entire wedding weekend!

On Sunday the BWC team joined up again for brunch at Joe & Darius’s private home. Transportation to the brunch was provided by Abbotts Limo. They brought some serious style! Classical Tents helped to transform Joe & Darius’s backyard for their guests, while Max Ultimate Food and Lakota Bar-B-Q  provided all the delicious food.

Flowers at both events were by the incredible Crocus Hale, who actually repurposed Joe & Darius’s wedding day flowers and brought them super early to their house for the brunch decor. I love working with Crocus!

The weekend couldn’t have gone any better and I have to attribute that to working with so many incredible Berkshire Wedding Collective members. When you have a team that really knows what they are doing, the results are amazing.  If you are planning a wedding in the area, you know where to find the best vendors!

What really stood out to me at Joe & Darius’s wedding was their warmth, care for their family and guests and deep love for each other. They had a beautiful, full weekend together – starting off at a rehearsal dinner at the Norman Rockwell Museum, and ending with a brunch at their private home.  Really, every wedding I photograph has this caring and warmth, but Joe & Darius’s wedding stood out because I was there to witness three full days of their joy and love.

The ceremony itself was super heartfelt. The involvement of several Berkshire Wedding Collective members – a dream team of wedding vendors for luxury weddings in the Berkshires – made their wedding plans come together. Classy, beautiful.

Joe & Darius were married at The Mount in the Berkshires. Weddings at The Mount are completely stunning. The Mount’s gardens and the rooms in the estate – everything is just right for the perfect Berkshires wedding.
