Today’s lovely real wedding comes to us from wedding planner (and bride!) Sarah Basch of Without A Hitch, Boston, MA! Here’s Sarah to tell us more:

I started Without A Hitch in 2013 after seeing a niche that wasn’t being filled – competent day-of coordination services for couples that want to be hands-on in the planning process.  We quickly grew from 9 weddings the first year to more than 40 this year. We work with couples all over New England, but mostly in the greater Boston area, who have a distinct vision and want help in executing it.

Between the rustic red barn, towering mountains and lush greenery, it’s no wonder why Megan Smiley (35 and a law school administrator) and Chris Graham (38 and works in technology project management) chose Springhill Pavilion in Belgrade, Montana, for their nuptials. Since the space was undeniably stunning, Megan and Chris used nature as inspiration for their very natural wedding.

This romantic country club wedding comes to us from Jonathan of Gonzalez J. Photography & Design Studio, based in Washington, DC! Here’s Jonathan to tell us more:
It’s hard to describe all the emotions a bride experiences as she anticipates seeing her groom for the first time. But there’s one thought that runs through the mind of every bride. Just like Kimberly said, “I hope that Simon thinks I’m beautiful.” And of course, Simon’s first thought upon seeing her was “Wow, she looks really beautiful!” As if there was any doubt?!

FAVORITES-2016-06-04AimeeandMattWedding32182-80

A gorgeous garden in full bloom sets the stage for today’s lovely real wedding, brought to us by Laura Lee Photography, based in Warwick, NY! Here’s Laura to tell us more:

Aimee and Matt were married in June 2016 at FEAST at Round Hill Mansion in Washingtonville, NY. They were surrounded by an incredible wedding party made up of cherished and childhood friends, their wonderfully supportive and loving families, countless friends, neighbors, joy and laughter. Aimee looked beautiful in her BHLDN gown and Matt had literally the best expression when they were pronounced husband and wife. I cried five times at this wedding, not just because it was a beautiful celebration, but also the honor and presence of love’s longevity.
