Last week we met with Kelly and Nathan at Wickham Park for their engagement session. We had never been to the park, and we are so excited that we had the opportunity to visit before we shoot a wedding there next year! The park has beautiful walking trails all through manicured gardens. At the end of the session we went to the top of the hill where there was a beautiful sunset!
Kelly and Nathan are high school sweethearts, just like us! Nathan proposed to Kelly on their 10 year anniversary, (at an ugly sweater party!) Nathan and Kelly love the outdoors. After a quick scroll through their Facebook pages (we feel like total stalkers, but it helps us get to know our couples, so we can serve them better!), we saw that they hiked the tallest peak in the Rockies! They also hiked 33 miles and 10 peaks in three days in the White Mountains! (What is with all of our couples being so cool!?)
When they were picking a venue for their wedding day, they picked the perfect spot for their love of nature! They are getting married at Bloom Meadows in the Berkshires! The venue is on the northern border of Massachusetts and New York. Bloom Meadows is a beautiful venue surrounded by rolling mountains. Our favorite part is the white barn, with an adorable bridal suite in the silo! Any Chip & Jo fans?! This is the venue for you!
Nathan and Kelly are our first destination wedding! If you look up the definition of a destination wedding, it is when a couple gets married over 100 miles from where they live. Destination weddings are so much fun for both the couple and their guests! You get to pick a unique location, and guests get to take a little vacation! We love destination weddings that are only a few hours away from home so guests can drive up, party at the wedding, stay the night, enjoy a day doing some local activities, and head home the next day!
Thank you Kelly and Nathan for letting us capture this special time of your lives! We are so excited to see you two on your big day!
