A word from the photographer: Samantha and Patrick held an intimate backyard wedding in the beautiful Berkshires. They were surrounded by family and friends and one very special guest who was snuggled safe and sound inside of Samantha's belly. I overheard Samantha later saying that when she and Patrick shared their first kiss as husband and wife, their little one gave a big kick, as if she was excited for their marriage as much as everyone else was. 

The ceremony was held out on the lawn of the house. There was not a cloud to be seen on this beautiful day. Patrick's dad officiated the ceremony. The reception was held outdoors as well. During cocktail hour guests enjoyed passed appetizers and outdoor games and during dinner a lovely speech was given by the bride's sister. 

Samantha and Patrick wanted things to be laid back and easy. Their wedding day went so smoothly, and I don't think there was a single minute that went by without smiles on their faces. Samantha was so graceful and beautiful, you would have never thought she was carrying a child with her the entire day. Especially once the dancing started, she danced like no ones business, I was so impressed. 

This sweet couple were not interested in doing the typical portrait session after the ceremony, they really just wanted to spend as much time as possible enjoying the time with their loved ones. Instead, they really wanted all candid shots, which worked out perfectly for there easy going, stress free day.
