Private Residence Wedding, Westfield, Massachusetts | Donna & Dave | July 11, 2015

When I first started college at BayPath College in Longmeadow, Massachusetts on my birthday in September 2012 I was so nervous. I sat down in my first class looking around the room searching for someone who might ease my nerves a bit. I took a deep breath and hoped for the best. Our professor, Yvettte Frisby,  matched us up with fellow classmates as part of an class exercise. I cannot remember who else I was paired up with but Donna was one of them. She had this kindred spirit about her that as soon as you meet her you feel like her best friend. She not only calmed my nerves but made me feel like I could do anything. We quickly became fast friends and found that we were in many classes together. I honestly would NOT have maintained my 3.9 average without this woman! Donna and I studied together, laughed together and complained together throughout our courses but through it all she constantly pushed me out of my comfort zone. When I decided to take a break from school and pursue my passion of photography she was my BIGGEST supporter. Her exact words "When I get remarried again - you are taking my pictures". Well she is a not only the greatest friend ever but she is a woman of her word. A year later she meets Dave and falls deeply in love. I am so happy that you have found your true love Donna! AND the rest is history people! 

On Saturday in the company of family of friends I was deeply honored to be Donna and Dave's wedding photographer. Donna and Dave's love is one that is so true and genuine that it was all you witnessed throughout the days events.

Donna and Dave I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy. You both have such huge hearts and have merged a beautiful family together. All of my love.

(Huge thanks to my second shooter Jessica of Jessica Marie Photographer.)

They worked so hard to produce an amazing  yard for their wedding day! Even suffering with a case of bad poison ivy but it was worth it! It looked gorgeous.

The reception was held at Tucker's Restaurant in Southwick, MA. Isn't this cake awesome?

What a beautiful first dance.
