September gave us another gorgeous day to celebrate the wedding of Brittney and Aaron at the Hyland Orchard and Pavilion in Sturbridge, MA. What we thought would be a rainy, stormy day, turned out to the one of the most beautiful (and hot!) summer days we’ve had so far!
Brittney and Aaron got to exchange their vows in front of their loving family and friends while overlooking the orchard. Their guests were transported to and from the hilltop at the Hyland Orchard via tractor, which made for such a special and fun experience for everyone. While sipping beer and hard cider, the guests witnessed a sweet ceremony led by Brittney’s brother, Clayton, who put a fun spin into his words and got many laughs from the crowd.
The star of the show, besides the bride and groom, was their little nephew CJ who managed to steal many “awwws” from everyone for how well-behaved and loving he was the entire time.
Guests continued the celebration at the pavilion, where they were treated to delicious food from Hearthstone, and entertainment by Wicked Entertainment. Every minute of their day was flawless, and the Hyland Orchard and Pavilion coordinator, Dorothy, was a huge part of the success.
A very special moment in the night came thanks to Aaron’s brother Brandon, who is an incredibly talented musician, who delighted everyone with a performance that got everyone dancing… and asking for an encore!
Although there was not much of a sunset – in fact, the thunderstorm we all prayed would stay away during the afternoon, came in the evening after the reception started and offered a much needed cool air, there was a spectacular bonfire that let us capture a perfect final portrait of Brittney and Aaron in front of the amber light.
Undoubtedly, my team and I had the most incredible day capturing every moment of Brittney and Aaron’s wedding, and we couldn’t be happier to be part of it all.
Brittney and Aaron: Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer! From the moment I met you at your engagement session, I knew you were my kind of people! I am honored and I wish you all the happiness and joy you deserve!
