I recently had the pleasure of capturing Bryan and Lauren’s wedding photography on an incredible sunny day in June at Hyland Orchard & Pavilion in Sturbridge Ma which is about sixty miles outside of Boston in the heart of Massachusetts’ apple country. This incredible venue is set on one of the highest elevations in the lovely town. The beautiful hillside, with pristine surroundings, provides a tranquil backdrop for any occasion.
We started out at the Holiday Inn in Sturbridge where everyone was enjoying himself or herself while getting ready.
All of the bridesmaids were laughing and joking while they were getting their hair and makeup done.
The bride gave intimate gifts to her bridal party and Lauren received one very special gift from one of her bride’s maids.
For years and years Lauren held onto her purple prom dress while everyone poked fun and finally one day she decided to give it up. Lauren finally dropped it off at a good will type of place and her girlfriend went and re-purchased it.
Probably one of the most thoughtful wedding gifts I have seen given thus far her girlfriend had a portion of the prom dress turned into a garter belt for Lauren to wear during her special day. It was part of something old turned into something new and she was extremely touched by the gesture.
The bride took a few minutes before we left to take some dramatic photos next to her father’s vintage hot rod. They came out amazing.
When we arrived at the venue Doe, the Coordinator at Hyland Orchard greeted us with the warmest smile. She went out of her way for the couple and their guests. Hyland Orchard’s vintage John Deere tractor wagon brought all of their guests to the ceremony on the hill.
Congratulations to Lauren and Bryan
