Jess and Dan had such an amazing wedding! They were married at the beautiful Ranch in Southwick, MA. Their rustic wedding was so well planned out and decorated, right down to the boots!
I don’t even know where to start with this couple. I first met Jess and Dan a few years ago when I photographed their friend’s wedding. When they emailed to tell me they were engaged and to ask to meet up, I was so excited! This couple is amazing. They are so fun and so down to earth. Possibly, the kindest people in the world.
When I asked Jessica about the planning process, here’s what she had to say. “Wedding planning has definitely been a lot of fun! We had a pretty long engagement so we took our time to enjoy it. We made sure to book the important things right away like the venue and photographer and DJ so that our date could be decided and then we took our time. I wanted to not only get excited to start our life together but to enjoy the time we had as an engaged couple. (It also gave us more time to save!) I think what I have actually put off the most was stationery! Way too many choices for invitations!!”
If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know how much I love a first look. Jessica did a first look with her father. On the count of three, everybody say, “Awwwwwww.”
I’ll let the photos tell the story. It was a beautiful story and I hope my pictures do it justice.
