We have been looking forward to Alicia and Mathew’s Crystal Lake Pavilion wedding in CT for months. This New England camp-style wedding venue is just our style, and Alicia’s wedding excitement was contagious! These two tied the knot under a canopy of pine trees in early November. While the sun set behind them, they read their own vows to each other as we documented the happy tears that followed.

Here are some of our favorite documentary photos from this rustic and woodsy wedding in Middletown, CT…

Alicia first reached out to us over a year ago to see if we were available to document her wedding. When she mentioned that she loved ethereal photos that were full of natural light, we instantly knew we would be a great fit! Alicia and Mathew had also chosen a venue that we have wanted to see in person for a while–the Pavilion on Crystal Lake in CT. This rustic venue has a beautiful outdoor ceremony space and a campy style reception pavilion that just feels quintessentially New England!

We loved that Mathew played such a huge role in the DIY details of the day. He made the painted tree guestbook, built the seating chart set-up and table numbers, and made all of the outdoor signs. Alicia loved to smile and scrunch up her face and say, “He just so crafty!”.  It’s refreshing to see a groom take on a design role in the details. Mat really gave the wedding a woodsy and handmade feel!

Huge thanks to Jack with the CT Weddings Group for his incredible attention to detail and coordinating the day so seamlessly. From start to finish, this wedding just felt so effortlessly joyous! Congratulations to Alicia and Mat. We hope you both enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed documenting your day!

We loved every minute of Scot and Amber’s White Mountain Hotel wedding in Conway, NH. This area of New England is beautiful year-round, but I think our favorite season for weddings in this area has to be the fall. The White Mountain Hotel was a new venue to us, but was the perfect spot for Scot and Amber. There were plenty of rooms to get ready in, and the mountain backdrop for their intimate ceremony was breathtaking. It seemed fitting that Scot and Amber would tie the knot surrounded by mountains; they spent most of their weekends at the beginning of their relationship hiking and snowshoeing! Scot surprised Amber with an engagement ring while hiking at Sleeping Giant. She said yes, and instead of the usual snacks in the backpack, he brought champagne!

Here are some of our favorite photos from this White Mountain Hotel wedding, along with some portraits at the nearby Cathedral Ledge. More details on this wedding below the photos!

After Amber and Scot’s outdoor wedding in the field below the White Mountain Hotel, we headed to the nearby Cathedral Ledge Park for portraits. This area is a popular rock climbing spot, and the views from the top of Cathedral Ledge were incredible. Amber brought along a cozy blanket to wrap up in for pictures–something we always recommend for fall weddings!

One of the things that instantly stood out at this wedding was the organic and neutral decor at the reception. It was clear that a lot of thought and energy had gone into the design of the space, yet it felt so clean and modern. Amber, like most brides, said she was always looking for good deals while planning the wedding. She suggested looking at Save On Crafts for other couples trying to go DIY on decor! We loved the vintage style medicine bottles filled with maple syrup by East Mountain Maple as guest favors. The woodcut cake topper by Wedding Pros with this couple’s initials was also a lovely modern touch. Guests were treated to custom burlap welcome bags with all kinds of thoughtful NH themed goods. Maple syrup candies, roasted nuts, and even a moose keychain was in the bags!

Congratulations to Scot and Amber… we wish you the best in all of your future adventures as husband and wife.  :)

This was our first Warfield House Inn wedding in the Berkshires, and we are full on smitten with this rustic venue! Nestled in the mountains of western MA, this woodsy spot is perfect for outdoor weddings. Lara and James couldn’t have picked a better place to tie the knot. These two were incredibly relaxed on the wedding day and their enthusiasm for all of our photo ideas was AWESOME!

We are documentary wedding photographers based in Shelburne Falls, MA. We were thrilled to find the Warfield House Inn wedding venue is less than a half hour from our home base! This venue is actually a working farm with cows, horses, and even alpacas! There are several barns on the property, and two country farm houses where guests can stay overnight. This venue is part of the Berkshire East Ski Resort. Guests can have adventures like white water rafting, zip lining or even doing a mountain coaster while in town for the wedding!

Lara and James seemed like such a perfect match, it was easy to capture candid photos of these two on the wedding day. They really couldn’t stop smiling, and the emotional ceremony photos while reading their vows are some of our favorites. Lara had some awesome ideas for decorating the covered pavilion reception spot. With neutral colors and antique store finds, this reception had a very Anthropologie vibe!

We loved the little magnetic ceramic animals used to hold up the reception table cards. Lara also found antique milk bottles that were used for simple organic floral centerpieces. Guests were treated to wood-fired pizzas by Vesta Mobile Pizza for dinner, and there were stunning views of the Berkshire mountains throughout the day.

Thanks to Lara and James for introducing us to such a stunning venue. We had a wonderful time documenting your wedding day!
