Bianca and Philip’s Fruitlands Museum wedding in Harvard, MA was held on a beautiful summer day in mid July. This was my first time being back at Fruitlands in a while and it was every bit as romantic and breathtaking as I remembered! This venue has an incredible outdoor ceremony space with rolling hills and views of Mount Wachusett and Monadnock as a backdrop. If this view looks familiar, it might be because you recognize it from the latest Little Women movie! This venue was a shooting site for the homestead of Meg and John after they were married.

More about this Fruitlands Museum wedding
When Bianca and Philip first reached out to us about documenting their wedding at Fruitlands, I jumped up in excitement. We haven’t been to this venue in a while, but the views here are like nothing else! This venue also has it all–a place for everyone to get ready for the day with a bridal suite upstairs and a large scenic room downstairs. The outdoor ceremony space is so lovely and just a short walk to the wedding reception tent.
I have to give props to Bianca and Philip and their entire wedding party. This group of folks win the 2021 award for largest group of people to be 100% on time for the first look and wedding party pictures! We began the day with a first look with Bianca and Philip just outside of the Fruitlands Museum shop. While scouting for the day, I found an incredible spot for their large wedding party just next to the ceremony site. Having the wedding party stand on the edge of the gravel path meant that I could have beautiful light on their faces and get Mount Wachusett and Monadnock in the background!
After wedding party pictures, guests began arriving and Bianca and Philip said their vows under a blanket of beautiful overcast light. Cocktails followed in the field behind the reception tent, and of course Fireside Catering brought out dish after dish of delectable appetizers.
One of my favorite things about this wedding was the DANCING. And when I say dancing, I mean, unbelievable, off the charts latin and k-pop dancing with some of the best music deejayed by Martika with Entertainment Specialists. Philip is half Cuban, and Bianca is half Korean, so there was the best mix of dance songs for this reception! Bianca and Philip did a salsa dance as their first dance. It took everything in my editing power not to post 40 photos of their first dance in this blog post. I’ve also been listening to latin music nonstop ever since this wedding, and for that, I have to say thank you to this couple. Philip and Bianca’s families were just incredible dancers and a compete and total joy to photograph.
Thank you to Bianca, Philip and all of their family and friends for welcoming me into such an amazing day. I had a wonderful time and can’t wait to share the full gallery of photos with them soon!
