today’s love story:
Nathan & Danielle’s Foliage Farm Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
There’s nothing like fall in New England. Crisp air, brilliantly-colored leaves and perfect temps. Fall is also filled with romance, and is our busiest time of year for weddings & engagement sessions throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire & Maine. I met Dani & Nathan about a year ago, and instantly fell for the love they share AND their wedding plans.
If you ask me what the perfect farm wedding looked like, I would say:
- a couple madly in love, each beyond excited to marry their best friend
- a gorgeous bride
- preferably a red barn
These two had all of these covered at October Farm in Westminster MA, courtesy of friends at Wachusett Brewery, with views of Wachusett Mountain in the distance. They also added several meticulously restored antique cars (courtesy of Dani’s grandfather and his car collection), a long-sleeve wedding gown (swoon!) and net head piece. I loved alllllll of it. Guaranteed you will too…
A surprise bottle of champagne, delivered to the ladies!
Dani’s father and grandfather are incredibly important to her, so just before leaving for the ceremony, she planned a first look at the bottom of the grand staircase at The Colonial Hotel.
Nathan and his guys road to the ceremony location at October Farm in Westminster in two antique cars. Nathan rode with his grandfather, who was also one of this groomsmen.
The only thing better than a tractor at a farm wedding, is a tractor filled with Wachusett Brewery beer and Nauti Seltzers!
Inspired by the Wachusett Brewery Country Pale Ale label, which is basically this exact shot sans gorgeous bride & groom.
I included an excessive number of pictures of their ceremony and portraits, so I’ll keep their reception short and tease a few of the moments from their night’s celebration.
Congratulations, Dani & Nathan. We’re so happy for you!
