A Rainy Wedding Day at Fiddler’s Elbow One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is watching my bride and groom read their vows in private. It’s such a genuine moment, filled with all the promises of this day and forever to come. When I heard Mark’s vows to Jessie, she wasn’t the only […]

A Heartfelt Summer Wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Kristen and Santiago met each other quite a few times before they became “Kristen and Santi.” Over the years, meeting at mutual friend’s parties, or day trips to the beach, each time one or both were in a relationship. It wasn’t until one Thanksgiving when they met again, […]

Summer Arrives Early at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club I love Emily and Joe’s story. They didn’t meet on an app, they didn’t meet in a bar. Joe worked for Emily’s father, who told him that he had “a nice daughter.” The rest is history. I think “nice daughter” is an understatement. Emily is truly one […]

Caitlin and Matt love the fall, so planned their wedding for early November in hopes of getting as much fall foliage as possible. Their wedding last Friday did not disappoint! We started our day at Fiddler’s Elbow, where Caitlin and Matt got ready separately, so they could share their first look with each other as […]

Last year we celebrated with Jess and Kevin at their church wedding ceremony, and a small backyard wedding. It was beautiful! Somehow, Jess and Kevin have picked the most beautiful wedding days, because over one year later, they had the same gorgeous day, albeit a little more crisp fall air! While having to postpone one’s […]

A Timeless Fall Wedding at Fiddler’s As we prepared for Katie‚Äôs wedding last Saturday, she mentioned that she wanted a look of traditional elegance with a touch of fall, but not as though they were trying too hard. The elegant traditional wedding cannot be overdone of course, but the fall overtones can be! Katie wanted to […]

A Family Tradition Wedding Third time is a charm for Caroline and Jon! When deciding on their wedding, venue was the most important factor for Caroline and Jon. The venue would be Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club, where Caroline’s parent’s got married almost 40 years ago. At first, Caroline planned for a Christmas wedding. However, when […]

Big Big Plans Brian proposed the day after Tara‘s birthday by surprising her at home with pictures, flowers, and story cards from big events in their lives. On Friday, however, we celebrated the biggest event in their lives thus far, and it’s only the beginning! Perhaps I’ve spent too much editing time binge-watching Hallmark movies […]

Third Time’s A Charm Katie and Garett have experienced the full intensity of wedding planning during a pandemic. After getting engaged in 2018, they planned a nice long engagement with hopes to marry in June 2020! However, 2020 had other plans, so like most couples they pivoted. And then they pivoted again. And then again. […]

A Romantically Rainy Spring Wedding The last thing a bride wants to hear on her wedding day is that “rain on your wedding day is good luck.” Maybe that’s true, but it doesn’t make it any less tiresome to hear it from everyone! I actually didn’t hear this once at Kerry & Geoffrey’s wedding! I […]

2020 Weddings Everyone has a story, but man do these couples have a story to tell! The adventure called “Getting married in 2020.” Each wedding is it’s own story, and not a single one is quite like the other. These couples pioneered their way through the unknown and married the loves of their lives. One […]

I had […]
