I had the pleasure of photographing Paul and Lauren’s art deco wedding at Ashintully Gardens in Tyringham, MA. To say it was spectacular would be the understatement of the year.
Let’s begin with these amazing shoes! There are not only the coolest shoes I’ve seen at a wedding but there is a great story behind them too! Lauren bought these on an Ebay store and it turns out the store was her coworker’s daughter’s store! The daughter is a friend of Paul’s and now Lauren’s. Of all the Ebay stores in all the world…
Meet the gorgeous, unique and vivacious Lauren.
Lauren prepared for the day in a cute little house on the premises. It was fun that the room had an old radio and bust of a head to hold the veil. Don’t you just love Lauren’s Marcel Waves 1920′s hairstyle!!
Her mom and dad were adorable as they watched their daughter get ready. Everyone was super excited when the sun came out as it had been a very dreary wet morning.
Meet Paul – he was such a pleasure to photograph. I love how he could not take his eyes off Lauren all day.
Their ceremony and reception were outside on this beautiful hilltop.
After a few pics on the hill, Lauren, Paul and their Maid of Honor and Best Man hiked through a forest and up a huge muddy hill to get to these old columns. This was not a simple task and I was sure they were not going to go up because the path was pretty steep and really muddy from the earlier rain. Add to it that the Best Man had just had back surgery! But they knew how cool the pics could be and made the trek! I was beyond ecstatic!!
(A brief history of the place: On a hill overlooking the southern end of Tyringham Valley, a landowner built between 1910 – 1912 a white, Georgian-style mansion which came to be known as the Marble Palace. The mansion’s main façade featured four Doric columns and was spanned by thirteen bay windows. Its interior contained thirty-five rooms, ten baths, and fifteen fireplaces. Though the Marble Palace was destroyed by fire in 1952, the front terrace, foundation, and four Doric columns remain today.)
Paul’s best man gave a great toast. Love this series of images.
Time for a little dancing!
How about an outfit change? Loved this shorts outfit.
Thank you Lauren and Paul for asking me to document your wedding day. It is one that I will always remember.
