Orchard and Pond Wedding | Kristen + Brendan


Kristen and Brendan chose to be married at one of my favorites venues to photograph, Alyson’s Orchard. The wildflowers and the summer green of the orchards made for a magnificent and romantic setting. A tractor-pulled wagon carried guests though winding dirt roads to the ceremony site.  Kristen and Brendan were full of laughter and bright, joyous smiles. They were married in the afternoon on the banks of the pond under a birch altar draped in pale-pink and white flowers. After they were pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds and I spent some time together creating photos on the dock of the pond, in the field of wildflowers and walking through the orchards. I love the photo of Brendan carrying Kristen through the flowers.

The reception hall was glowing and classically arranged with gorgeous flowers and a birch bark cake. All in all, they had a sweet and tender wedding, complete with a stellar vocal performance by Brendan backed up by his groomsmen.

I wish the Kristen and Brendan happiness and health in their life together!
