Nicole & Tuc were married on May 17 with a ceremony and reception at the Wheatleigh Hotel in Lenox, MA. I was looking forward to this wedding in the Berkshires because we had so much fun during our relaxed winter engagement session. They are truly an exquisite couple!
The Wheatleigh Hotel is beautiful on a normal day, but it was a masterpiece as the backdrop of the intimate wedding that Nicole and Tuc envisioned. It was a beautiful day with mountain views and sun peering through fluffy clouds in the distance. Their day started with a personal ceremony that was officiated by Nicole's relative and only family was in attendance. Through my camera I caught tears of happiness on their loved ones' faces as Nicole and Tuc exchanged their hand written vows. After the ceremony they had me take a picture of them on their iPhone so they could send it to their friends. They had in fact kept their day a surprise until that moment.
During dinner, the sky turned a bit dark, but I noticed the sun was peering out too. I thought there could be a chance of a rainbow, but couldn't have imagined the perfect sight as I stepped outside. The three of us hurried outside to capture it. I saw the smiles on Nicole and Tuc's faces and knew they could feel this was a sign of good luck shining down on them.
This couple showed me so much kindness through the entire experience. I was touched when they personally walked me out to say goodbye as I left them to enjoy the rest of their evening. They even gave me one of the beautiful centerpieces that Carolyn Valenti created. What a special gift.
Nicole & Tuc, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I loved every minute! Congratulations & happy one month!
