Dave and Andrea's perfect fall wedding in the Berkshires couldn't be ruined by rain. They were ready with their clear umbrellas and were determined to take advantage of the gorgeous fall foliage for their wedding images and first look! While driving from Boston that morning, we thought for sure we would be spending the day looking inside for creative ways to shoot their images. We could barely see through the rain and windshield wipers at some points! Miraculously, when we arrived it had turned from torrential downpour to overcast and just a little misty.
Dave and Andrea were still going back and forth as to when to make that final call on bringing the ceremony inside. They had a vision which also included a grand piano in the field, surrounded by the beautiful fall colors and all of their loved ones.
In the final moments though, they decided comfort for their guest and pictures for them were the best compromise! They were such troopers, starting with their first look in an incredible field without even using the umbrellas! The staff at Gedney Farms had mentioned that the leaves had just turned that week! It was truly breathtaking to watch such a special moment in the center of such beauty.
Andrea looked absolutely stunning as she walked toward her husband to be. Dave didn't look too bad himself!! First looks aren't for everyone, but I have to say, we love to witness such a touching moment between two people so madly in love! The expressions that slowly change from surprise, then shock, love and complete overwhelming happiness as they take in everything that they are seeing, is pretty spectacular.
Once they had a minute to compose themselves, it was on to pictures!!!! Obviously, on their trips to the venue and in the planning process they had begun to envision how they saw themselves on the day and where they wanted to capture some of those moments. That expansive landscape surrounded by color had to be a focal point so we got to work!
I actually love the fact that you can see the rain drops in the images! And clearly it isn't bothering them at all! The ceremony ended up being so intimate and romantic inside the barn. The staff did in incredible job moving everything indoors on short notice and creating a perfect backdrop for this awesome couple to say I DO. I loved how the fall touches were brought throughout the wedding. The colored leaves lining the aisle were gorgeous!
And who can forget the ring bearer, Lenny?!?!? The couple's English Bulldog was dressed to the nines and ready for his close up! I couldn't get over how cute he looked!
It was such a perfect wedding with a perfect couple and we were blessed to be there to capture it! Thank you both for choosing us to be a part of your big day! I hope you enjoyed the same day slideshow but even more we hope you are enjoying married life on your honeymoon in Italy! Congrats again!
