Kicking off my 2017 Wedding Season with these two sweethearts at this awesome venue absolutely calls for a blog post! As you might remember I traveled to Oakland, California in November to document Huey and Will's intimate ceremony. Click HERE to see my blog in case you missed it. Fast forward a few months and we are together again but this time we are celebrating with Huey and Will's closest Family and Friends. They chose Mill One at Open Square Way in Holyoke, Massachusetts as their venue to renew their vows and dance the night away. Mill One offers a unique alternative to most traditional venues. Honestly I could have photographed there all day and still not finished exploring the incredible architectural elements Mill One offers.
Huey and Will chose a quick first look to start their wedding day celebration. I can honestly tell you that these two are SO IN LOVE. Their connection is so intoxicating and complimenting that sitting back and watching them interact you would think they had fallen in love for the first time. It was truly something special to witness.
We then made our way over to Mill Four and Mill Three to finish portraits and join Huey and Will's Family for a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony. I have never been a part of this traditional and intimate event and it was really very moving. As the sunset over the city....Huey and Will then renewed their vows with the guidance of Huey's sweet brothers and Will's Father and Sister Lucy.
The party continued back in Mill One and BOY! Did they throw an awesome party! Rob Alberti of Rob Alberti Wedding DJ Services rocked out some grooving tunes, while the attentive staff of Blue Heron Catering served fantastic bites throughout the evening.
I can not say enough about the amazing energy, love and spirit that encompasses Huey and Will's relationship. I feel like I am constantly repeating myself when I talk about my brides and grooms. I am so deeply humbled by the opportunities I get to experience. Their day was filled with sweet traditions, lots of laughter and beautiful, unconditional love.
