today’s love story:
Kelly + Nick’s Sterling National Country Club Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
Kelly + Nick’s Sterling, Massachusetts wedding was at a venue near and dear to their hearts. . . Well, Nick’s heart at least, as he’s an avid golfer and this is his Country Club!
Kelly + Nick are so easygoing and awesome to work with – our associate team photographed to this wedding, so they had the pleasure of having Shannon and Amanda for the day!
The ladies had so much fun getting ready, the laughs and smiles lit up the Windsor Room. It was pure love when Kelly’s bridesmaids prayed over her. There are no people better to pray with you + for you than the ladies you love most!
Is there anything sweeter than the first time a father sees his daughter dressed as a bride? It’s one of the few occasions when he can get emotional without everyone watching him – that sweet moment of loving emotion that dads are so rarely willing to show.
Then it was time for Nick + Kelly’s first look moment before the wedding ceremony. They chose to exchange private vows with one another – a moment they’ll always keep with them.
We loved these two first! We photographed Lindsay + Kyle’s Harrington Farm wedding about 5 years ago (is that right, Lindsay?) and now they have 2 sweet babes who got to attend the festivities for Uncle Nick + Auntie Kelly.
The ceremony was perfection in the most beautiful light…and scroll on. The flower girl’s expression makes me laugh every time I see her little face!
The best part of the day is slipping away with the bride and groom, to give them space to enjoy each other privately, which is a rare gift on the wedding day!
Nick’s mother couldn’t be with him in person for a mother-son dance, so he danced with his sister. Sharon will be forever missed, and while these pictures bring tears to my eyes, they also remind me of the bond of this family, and how blessed they are to have had this moment together with mom watching over them.
I loved seeing this beautiful mama in blue + her family in the pictures – I’ve been photographing their family portraits for years!! It was fun seeing them out on the dancefloor with Kelly.
Congratulations Kelly + Nick! I hope you enjoy your mini-moon in Newport and your winter honeymoon in Barbados!
