We enjoyed everything about John and Deborah's non traditional celebration of their marriage! They had planned this all the way from Massachusetts, without Deborah having been to the location, which belongs to a member of John's family. They had told us that it was a country setting and when we saw how ideal it was to photograph, we were very excited. Married a few days before (back home in MA), they thought it would be a great way to include his family by exchanging vows and celebrating at the end of a family reunion. There were so many special touches- Deborah made her bouquet from white roses found at the local grocery, their rings were passed around on a burlap pillow for family to offer their blessings, John's sister played the flute, vintage plates and linens were set out, there was a bit of comedy & even dogs were welcome. This couple just oozed with love for one another, which is very evident in their photographs. We felt lucky to be a part of their special event and wish John & Deborah all the blessings of love and happiness in their new life together.
