When Lake and Tom got in touch with us almost two years ago, we instantly got excited about photographing their wedding day. They are the most wonderful couple and throughout the whole planing process we had a blast coming up with ideas and helping them to have a perfect day. And a perfect day it was at the MASS MoCA in the little town of North Adams, right in the Berkshires. The clouds were hanging low that day, but Lake and Tom brightened the mood of everyone around them.
The day started with all the business of getting ready. It is indeed a little unfair that the groom and his grooms men are always much quicker than the bride and her party, but all the excitement, with their closest around them culminated in the sweetest first look, embedded in courtyard of the museum. We then continued to explore the grounds together, before joining family and friends for some group pictures.
The couple said yes to each other, during a catholic mass at the church of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, every moment accompanied by the radiant looks of the couple and their loved ones. The grand exit after the ceremony, had to be cut a little short due to some rain coming in, but it didn’t dampen the joy and eagerness to celebrate to the fullest at all.
The ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour in the Spencer Finch Gallery, where Lake and Tom mingled to spend some time with all the loved ones who came from close and far. The delicious dinner was served in the South Hall on long, beautifully decorated tables, before towards the end of the night also the dance floor was opened. Here the guest really showed their spirits and it got to be a long night. Congrats Lake & Tom!
