On Saturday 6, 2016 I had the honor of documenting Sarah and Joe's wedding day at Spencer Country Inn in Spencer, Massachusetts. With the chance of a thunderstorm ruining the couples outdoor ceremony, the day could not have gone more perfectly. The couple both being musicians added many unique elements to their day.
I met Sarah and her bridesmaids at the Top shop hair salon in Worcester where they were getting ready for the day. There was so much laughter and excitement. Jenn and Carol did a wonderful job on the girls hair & makeup. After the salon, we went to Spencer Country Inn so the girls could get dressed. As the day went on the clouds grew darker and we were worried that the outdoor ceremony would be ruined but not Sarah, she kept such a positive attitude throughout the day. She kept repeating: today is perfect. And indeed it was a perfect day. It rained 20 minutes before the ceremony began and only lasted 5 minutes. The wonderful staff at Spencer country Inn got busy wiping down the seats as the sun began to break through the dark clouds just in time for the couple to say their vows.
Joe played the guitar as Sarah and her father walked down the aisle. When she got to the end of the aisle, she began to play the flute. The couple played for each other; this performance certainly warmed the hearts of everyone. Joe's twin brother married the couple in front of the gazebo outside of Spencer country Inn. The bride’s parents sang and played the banjo, and the grooms mother gave a moving talk about what it means to be married. Sarah and Joe were officially pronounced bride and groom as the sun began to set, such perfect timing!
Every wedding that I document is special to me. I met Sarah earlier this year and immediately we clicked. We share a common love for Neo soul and have spent an afternoon jamin to the sounds of Lauren Hill and Jill Scott. It’s not just her taste in music but also her upbeat personality that I admire so much. Congratulations Sarah and Joe. I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to document your special day at Spencer country Inn
