Brielle and Nick

One of my favorite things about what I do is meeting couples who have all sorts of interests. I get to learn tons of new things, and then I get to capture how my brides and grooms integrate their hobbies and personality into their big day. Brielle and Nick’s floral, fun filled wedding at Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury was the perfect representation of this couple. Keep reading to see what I mean…

As I got to know Brielle and Nick, from their engagement session, through wedding planning, I quickly learned they are a fun-loving, adventurous couple. Brielle rides horses and Nick flys planes: how cool is that?! Their lighthearted personalities were clearly expressed throughout their gorgeous wedding: they had a photobooth with tons of super silly props – hashtags included! And if you think that was enough…they had a caricature artist making guest caricatures!

While Brielle and Nick brought fun to Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury for their big day, Shadowbrook put on a spectacular event for them. Shadowbrook is known for its lush gardens and amazing food (and food presentation), and there was no disappointment for Brielle and Nick. The outdoor locations for shooting were bursting with bright flowers and lush green trees, the outdoor ceremony area with trellis was perfect, and of course, inside this historic mansion was simply amazing. Not to mention the food. Oh. The. Food. Shadowbrook is also known for its food, especially its ‘extravagant Viennese display’. Be sure to check out a few shots of this dessert extravaganza below!

Thank you Brielle and Nick for allowing me to capture your big day! From our engagement session together to your big day, I have had so much fun with you both! Lots of love and hugs for both of you as you embark on your biggest adventure yet!

Was there a theme behind your wedding day? What colors did you choose? What ‘feeling’ were you going for?

Brielle: Purple is my favorite color, so we incorporated many shades of purple complemented by blushes, ivories, and natural green and wood tones.

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?

Wow, so hard to pick just one. I loved our first dance – we took lessons and had to practice quite a bit, so it was a great feeling being able to show everyone what we could do!
