Stacie and Josh's wedding day was just perfect to kick off our 2018 wedding season! They had a small intimate wedding with just close friends and family at the Founder's Inn. The whole day was filled with emotions and joy. Stacie and Josh have been through so much together. Each part of the day brought waves of emotions. From the daddy and daughter First Look all the way to the First Dance I was trying to make sure I could see through my lens when watching them all tear up.Read More

Sooo much love and so much pretty!!! Michelle and Shawn's wedding day was just beautiful in every way. They chose to have an intimate small wedding at their lovely home right in Smithfield. It was the perfect backdrop for their very sweet Ceremony. The Fall colors mixed with Fleur De Fou's gorgeousss florals was just stunning.
After having all the Family Pictures done they took a Horse and Carriage ride to The Smithfield Inn for their Reception. It was like straight out of a Fairy Tale! An absolutely exquisite handmade Wooden Farm Table adorned with flowers and candles awaited them when they arrived.. After everyone was finished with dinner it was time to cut the cake. Yummaries Bakery made a fabulous ( and delicious ) Naked Cake. They ended their evening with laughing, dancing, and then releasing lanterns over the water.
We are so happy for Shawn and Michelle! It was wonderful being part of their amazing day. We have also included their short Highlight Film at the bottom of this post.
