Married: Whitney & Andy: The Ponds at Bolton Valley

As the forecast predicted scattered storms all through the day, I assured Amanda, whom I was 2nd shooting for that day, that such predictions never came to light in this area. Storms just seem to float right over us! Yep. And off we went!

Upon our arrival at The Bolton Vallery Resort, we met up with Whitney and her ladies. Justin Cruz and his team had done an amazing job on the elegant hairdos and Mirror Mirror was just adding the finishing touches. The feeling in the room was of utter joy and excitement as the women chatted and laughed while their beautiful Whitney became a bride.

As always it was a pleasure to work alongside my friend and fellow photog, Amanda of Orchard Cover Photography. And it was certainly a treat for me to be the one floating about capturing moments and details throughout the day. Thank you to Whitney, Andy and their families for being so wonderful and welcoming! A truly beautiful wedding was made even more so by their joy and love for life! Congratulations :) xo Kaht

Whitney did not need much in the way of make-up to make her gorgeous. Just a few natural accents! My favorite style :)

Just a fun sassy shot!

When we arrived at The Bolton Ponds, the sky was looking very ominous and at one point it did....sprinkle a little. I almost had to find a plate and eat my words!

BUT Whitney was so excited to get married that I do not think she noticed :)

Whitney's gown was simply stunning. I love lace accents on wedding gowns and this really took the gold! Just beautiful.

Thank goodness for bridesmaids! For all those buttons :)

One last message to her soon-to-be Mr.!

There were a lot of fun details that made this such a summery wedding! The fans came in perfect during the ceremony :)

Allison of Floral Artistry did a beautiful job as always on the flower arrangements. Have you met this gal before? Now this is someone who loves her job and her life and it definitely shows in her work!

Outside we go! To where the clouds had gone away and the sun was shining bright! ::puts plate a fork away:: Thank goodness!!


So elegant.

Rain? What rain?

Everyone had a different style shoe which made me go "oooh" and "aaah" a lot. I wish I could wear such cute shoes! Lack of balance keeps me in flats though.

The purple and green theme was carried through a lot of details! I particularly loved the programs. And the cow napkins ;)

While Amanda covered the lower area, I took to the porch above the ceremony site. A great vantage point!

"With this ring..."

Mr. & Mrs.!

A sweet image of Whitney and her dad.

All of the windows provided for some awesome natural light during the cocktail hour!

I love when toasts involve funny stories from the past that everyone can laugh at!

And smile at!

And maybe a little grimacing ;)

Whitney & Andy sail together and they found these wonderful little sailboat place card holders! So perfect :) And a perfect place for a ring shot as well!

Instead of a cake, they served strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was summerly delightful!

The Ponds is set in a beautiful location! Made even more so by the lovely sunset.

As the evening wore on, people warmed up their dancing shoes. The Pulse of Boston provided some excellent beats to keep people up and moving! And man did they move and groove :)

A beautiful end to a beautiful day!
