On a radiant September day, Kelly + Will embarked on the beginning of their forever. As the golden sun cast its warm embrace over the historic barn and tranquil surroundings, love and anticipation filled the air. The stage was set for a day brimming with romance, joy, and the timeless elegance.

Join me as I recount the enchanting tale of Kelly and Will's wedding—a celebration that seamlessly intertwined the rustic allure of Bradstreet Farm with the enduring promise of love.

The Enchantment of Bradstreet Farm: A Wedding Photographer's Dream

The Barn at Bradstreet Farm, holds a special place in my heart as one of the most picturesque wedding venues on the north shore for photography. The Barn at Bradstreet Farm isn't just a wedding venue – it's an experience. Nestled on a 7-acre property in Rowley, Massachusetts, this historic barn, dating back to the 18th century, offers a picturesque setting for an unforgettable wedding celebration.

The Barn at Bradstreet Farm offers a variety of stunning backdrops for your wedding ceremony and reception. The barn itself features rustic charm, with exposed beams, wooden floors, and large windows that provide ample natural light. The property also boasts beautiful gardens, rolling fields, and a picturesque pond, all of which make for perfect photo opportunities.

More than just a first look

Kelly + Will shared a moment of pure joy and love during their first look. Surrounded by the lush beauty of the secluded pond, their eyes met, and the world seemed to melt away. In that stolen moment, their emotions poured forth, a testament to the deep connection they share.

But the magic didn't stop there. Stepping away from the public gaze, they exchanged heartfelt vows, whispered promises that deepened the bond between them. Their words, laced with love and commitment, painted a picture of a future filled with happiness and adventure. It was a private declaration of their unwavering devotion, a prelude to the vows they would soon exchange before friends and family.

A Love for Mugs: A Unique Wedding Favor

Amongst the many details that make a wedding unique, wedding favors stand out as tokens of appreciation for loved ones who have come to celebrate with the newlyweds. But Kelly + Will decided to put a special spin on their favors, drawing inspiration from their shared love for coffee and mugs.

For two years, they embarked on a delightful journey through thrift stores scouring for mugs of all shapes, sizes, colors, and themes. From classic white mugs to quirky novelty ones, they collected a diverse assortment that reflected their individual personalities and their love for the simple pleasure of a warm cup of coffee.

Heartfelt Sweetness

Kelly + Will embraced the trendy charm of heart-shaped wedding cakes, a style that has me absolutely smitten. Adding to the sweetness, the heart-shaped cake was topped with adorable figurines of their beloved dogs, Sonny and Lady. This sweet personal touch perfectly captured the romance and joy of their special day, while also incorporating their pets in their wedding celebration.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm glow over the fields of Bradstreet Farm, Kelly + Will's wedding day drew to a close, leaving behind a trail of cherished memories and a promise of everlasting love. It's moments like these that remind me of the profound privilege I have as a photographer—to witness the beauty of human connection and to immortalize the timeless essence of love.

I am grateful to have shared this journey with Kelly and Will, and to have had the opportunity to document their love story. The echoes of their laughter, the tender embraces, and the quiet moments of reflection have all become a part of the tapestry of memories woven into the fabric of this historic day.

I want to extend my warmest wishes to Kelly and Will as they embark on this new chapter of their lives together. May your love continue to grow and flourish, and may each day be filled with laughter, joy, and an enduring sense of togetherness.
