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. Being a part of the luxury wedding community in the Berkshires is a joy.Read More
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. Gedney Farm always does a fantastic job at making couples feel at home and have exactly what they want for their wedding. I will never get over how gorgeous it is at Gedney!Read More
A word from Tara: Weddings at Stonover Farm never disappoint. With it's expansive lawn and magnificent barn, it combines generosity of space with a feeling of intimacy. And you can't beat the colorful chickens wandering around the lush landscape!Read More
Erin married her longtime love Tim on a frigid February day in Lenox. Despite the sub-zero temperature, the couple was beaming all day and never once complained about being cold! All three venues- Hotel on North, Church on the Hill, and the Lenox Library provided a timeless, vintage feel to the event. The icing on the cake? when Erin came down the aisle wearing her grandmother's wedding dress. Simply stunning! It was such a joy to capture the day for this lovely couple in the Berkshires!Read More
Before November there was no circumstance I could have imagined that would cause me to miss one of my couples' special day. As a wedding photographer we bind ourselves to the dates our brides and grooms reserve us for, well in advance. I personally believe they've made such an important choice when selecting their photographer and it's a commitment I take very seriously.Read More
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.Read More
Everything about this wedding makes me want to gush. The color pallete of ivory, yellow, champagne and gray chosen for this wedding was stunning against the backdrop of Gedney Farm. It was breathtaking to walk the fields filled with goldenrod as Jessica and Matthew walked together and we captured their portraits.Read More
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.Read More
From Liz: June 7th was one of the most-requested dates of the 2014 bridal season, and I was fortunate to be able to accept two weddings that day – the first of which took place at a luxurious B&B in the beautiful Berkshires (just a stone’s throw from Tanglewood!) Devon was easygoing, upbeat, and overall a delight to work with, as were all seven of her friends and family that I had the opportunity to beautify that morning. I’m so glad her fabulous photographer recommended me!Read More
Stunning, stunning, stunning....is there another way to describe such elegance?
Rachel & Brian took my breath away with their attention to all the right details. Wheatleigh exemplifies excellence in every way and Lisa Light of Destination Bride executes planning to perfection. This winning combination creates a post I can't wait to share!Read More
Are you sitting down? Of course you are, you’re at a computer. Taking deep breaths? Got a glass of water nearby? Maybe some tissues? Okay. Just want to make sure everyone’s comfortable before we get into it because this is the kind of wedding that can knock you off your feet. Everything about Sara and Serge’s fête was stylish, romantic and hearkened back to old world elegance that fits so perfectly with the architecture of The Mount.Read More
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!Read More
There's so much to love about Heather & Mike. So to be part of a day as lovely as theirs was very special. I felt like I was seeing old friends after our fun engagement session in NYC earlier in the summer and now I had the chance to meet all the friends and family that think the world of them. Their wedding was held in the Berkshires, in the gardens of Chesterwood in Stockbridge, MA. The day, the details, the location, the people...simply stunning!! Congratulations to you both, Mr. & Mrs. Gallerstein!
Like many of my recent ones, this beautiful wedding at a Vanderbilt estate in Lenox, MA was heavily rained upon (forcing the ceremony indoors), but you’d never know it from all the smiles! Kayte and her family and friends were too busy soaking up the joy of the day to worry about the weather, and they were a delight to work with. It was a big group so friend & fellow artist Shreni Patel accompanied me to the Berkshires to get everyone prepped.
Kayte works for Chanel (check out those fabulous shoes!) so I incorporated the brand’s eyeshadow and lipstick into her final look, along with lots of lashes and glowing airbrushed skin. Her dress was a dream and the flowers absolutely took my breath away.

Venue: Elm Court, Lenox MA
Flowers: Crocus Hale

Sporadic rain showers couldn’t put a damper on the sheer joy of this beautiful May ceremony in the Berkshires! I did makeup for bride Lizzie as well as her mom, grandmom, mother in law, and 3 bridesmaids – everyone got a unique look tailored to their features (including lots of lush lashes). Lizzie’s big brown eyes looked especially striking with dark liner and warm peachy tones, a look that guaranteed her eyes would stand out even behind the veil. I’m so delighted to be able to share photos AND video from her gorgeous wedding!
