A Preview for Megan & Austin

On Saturday (yesterday at the time of this writing) I had the pleasure of photographing Megan and Austin’s wedding at the Andover Country Club in Andover, MA. They are such a beautiful couple; the bride in particular has striking blue eyes. I could tell that a lot of thought and love went into planning their wedding. They were very cooperative and allowed me to get some great images that I hope they will enjoy for many years.

The day started at the Spa ni’joli & salon in Methuen, MA where the gracious and talented staff prepared make-up and hair for the bride, her mom, and bridesmaids. That morning, the groom had a gorgeous diamond watch delivered to his bride to be. The story is that, months earlier, Austin had noticed Megan’s reaction when she first saw it, and had been planning the surprise since then.

As I got to know Katie, Danielle, Natalie, and Jen (aka The Bridesmaids) I knew this was going to be a fun group. And they were all very enthusiastic about getting great photographs for the bride and groom. The ceremony was at Saint Williams Church in Tewksbury, MA and was a beautiful service.

When we arrived at the Andover Country Club, we were running a little late, but the staff, especially the event manager, Tracy Pacy, could not have been more gracious or accommodating. An ideal wedding reception site, the Country Club has a beautifully landscaped garden with lots of different photo opportunities. I have posted some of my early favorites from the day. You will be able to see the rest of the photographs in about 2 weeks using the event card from the wedding. I hope you enjoy the photography. Please add your comments below.

Alli & Bryan McGrew May 9, 2009

Hi all. What a great time everyone had at Alli and Bree’s wedding. You were all so fun to work with. The bride and groom are truly blessed to have such good friends and family around them. Their joy was evident through every image I captured. I am really excited to share some of the photographs with you now. Attendees of the event will be able to access the rest using your event cards next week. (If you didn’t get an event card email me at erik@athousandmoments.com)

The Stonehurst Mansion in Waltham is one of my most favorite reception sites. The mansion was built in the late 1800’s. The grounds were designed by famed Landscape Architect Frederick Law Olmstead who was responsible for the Esplanade and the Arboretum in Boston, as well as Central Park in New York. So everywhere you look outside there is a gorgeous landscape to photograph. The house was designed and constructed by Henry Hobson Richardson who also designed Trinity Church. The mansion is filled with beautiful old oak and stone and tons of great architectural details – including a grand staircase that makes for awesome group photos. (http://www.stonehurstwaltham.org/.) The event was catered by Currier and Chives, who I thought made some really delicious food. http://www.currier-chives.com/ And there were some really fun desserts by Cookies by Joanne. The chocolate covered Oreo cookies were really great.

Engagement Photography Maryclaire and Michael

Veteran’s Park is a lovely little park at the corner of 139 and 3A in Marshfield, MA. It is one of my favorite places to photograph, and is showing some really great spring colors right now. For their engagement photography session, Maryclaire and Michael wanted to include Michael’s daughter and two boys.
So it was part engagement photography session, and part family portrait session.
It is always fun photographing kids since they are so easy to make laugh and get some really natural smiles and genuine reactions.

Maryclaire and Michael are planning their wedding in the fall at the Indian Pond Country Club Reception Site in Kingston, MA. I hope you all enjoy these engagement photos. I cannot wait until their wedding!
