SAVANA AND JUSTIN'S WINTER WEDDING AT WHEATLEIGH

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.

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.

HILARY & JONATHAN'S WEDDING AT THE MOUNT

Hilary & Jonathan’s big day featured a real Berkshire wedding dream team – event planning and design by Tara Consolati, flowers by Crocus Hale, rentals by Classical Tents and Rentals Unlimited, lighting by Julie Seitel… These are wedding collaborators I have the good fortune to work with often, and they are so skilled and gracious and kind. It is a total delight to see them at work. Tara knows how to take a couple’s vision for their wedding day and bring it completely to life. Crocus’s floral designs are out of this world. Classical Tents has everything you could possibly need to make your wedding day beautiful and stress-free. And Julie gives each wedding such incredible light and energy.

 LeeAnn and Sohit were married in the Berkshires at the same church where LeeAnn’s parents were married – St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. The church was gorgeous, with beautiful Tiffany stained glass.

EMILY & JAMES WEDDING AT GEDNEY FARM

Emily and James were married at Gedney Farm. The weather was perfect, and we were able to make some great portraits outside while the sun was setting.

KATE & EVAN'S WEDDING AT RED CLOVER INN

Kate & Evan were married at the Red Clover Inn in Killington, Vermont. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding & so full of love from family and friends. The fall colors were beautiful and we took advantage of them while making portraits. We were able to make a photo from above of all the wedding guests, which is one of my favorite things to do – my wife and I really cherish the photo we have of all our family and friends together on our wedding day.

MARY & TODD'S WEDDING AT GEDNEY FARM

Mary & Todd were married at Gedney Farm. It rained, so the ceremony was inside, but a Gedney Farm wedding is beautiful rain or shine! They didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so we snuck a few portraits in between cocktails and dinner. The rain had stopped, and we were able to do them outside.

CHARLOTTE & SCOTT'S WEDDING AT SERANAK

Charlotte & Scott’s Seranak wedding at Tanglewood in the Berkshires was absolutely gorgeous with a magnificent view. They had their ceremony outside during a stunning sunset, so we were able to photograph them with an incredible backdrop.

ELANA & BEN'S WEDDING AT THE MOUNT

Elana & Ben were married at The Mount in the Berkshires. My heart is still overflowing with gratitude and joy. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have been a part of Elana & Ben’s wedding and to have had the chance to get to know them as a couple. In spite of a heavy rain that presented some challenges that were unexpected, the unstoppable forces of love, kindness, family and teamwork made the wedding sweet and beautiful. The quote of the day was “Man makes plans and God laughs.” Everyone just smiled and rolled with it. Plus, they say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. =)

JENN & BRIAN'S WEDDING AT GEDNEY FARM

Jenn & Brian were so fun. They didn’t want to see each other until the ceremony, but then made plenty of time to make portraits during the cocktail hour. It worked out better for them and for the pictures, because the light after the ceremony was so much prettier, softer and dramatic. Pre-ceremony portraits that day would have been tougher to make in the direct overhead sunlight.

CASSIE & DAN'S WEDDING AT CRANWELL RESORT

Cassie & Dan made engagement photos with me in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan. They are fun together and like to make each other laugh. Their wedding had that same quality – their friends and family loved to laugh, too. Cassie & Dan’s wedding was my first time photographing at Cranwell in the Berkshires. The grounds are so pretty, and the inside of the mansion has beautiful detail. At this point I think I’ve photographed a wedding at every major Berkshire venue!

ERIN & DOUG'S WEDDING AT GEDNEY FARM

At Erin & Doug’s wedding, the weather forecast was threatening rain, which put the ceremony inside. It didn’t rain after all, so they were still able to have cocktails and make portraits outside. Still, it was cool to see that even though their plan was to have the ceremony outside, bringing it indoors was perfect.

CHRISTINE AND WILL'S BERKSHIRE WEDDING AT STONOVER FARM

A word from Christopher: Christine & Will had their wedding at Stonover Farm, which is a pretty exclusive place to get married, because they can only do a handful of weddings per year. It was my first time photographing a wedding at Stonover Farm and it is definitely one of the best barns in the Berkshires.

ALEX AND JUSTIN'S BERKSHIRES WEDDING AT DREAM AWAY LODGE

My wife and I have known Alex for a few years – she was a Fall intern at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival where we work every summer. She moved to New York City, and she started nannying for a good friend of ours – later to become her flower girls!

Then Alex moved back to the Berkshires and worked at Kripalu Yoga Center teaching yoga. Both she and Justin taught yoga. The two of them are just delightful. The sweetest, most generous, thoughtful people.

JOE AND DARIUS'S BERKSHIRES WEDDING AT THE MOUNT

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.

CAROL AND JOEL'S WHEATLEIGH WEDDING IN THE BERKSHIRES

I think I might just be the luckiest girl in the world.  Every day I get to sort through beautiful images of weddings all over the world, but none are quite as special to me as the ones taken in the Berkshires.  I'm beyond thrilled with the photographers I have in the Berkshire Wedding Collective, and am excited to bring you one of Christopher Duggan's today.  Held at Wheatleigh (which I may have mentioned--on more than one occasion--is one of my favorite places!), Carol and Joel's wedding pictures had me wiping away a tear or two!  Beautifully captured by one of my favorite people!
