Two weeks ago, I had the honor of seeing two dear friends get married. Laurence and Sarah were married in Asheville, North Carolina, at Sarah’s parents’ house. The ceremony was intimate, sweet, and emotional. We then had a lovely dinner at the North Carolina Arboretum, a gorgeous place on the Blue Ridge Parkway,  and an after-party at local pub, complete with sparklers. The entire day was filled with warmth, love, and lots of bluegrass music, and I was thrilled to be apart of it.

    Connie - you shot this so thoughtfully, j. They brought tears to my eyes for a number of reasons. I really think you captured them, and the details, and the day wonderfully. I almost felt like I got to be there.

    Amber Pierce - I love the tone of these images and how you captured the essence people throughout the day. Beautiful work!

Lyndsey, Charlie, and I met the weekend before the 4th of July to photograph their engagement session on Lake Winnipesaukee. We took Lyndsey’s grandmother’s boat, a beautiful wooden boat from 1937, out across the lake to one of the natural islands there, and we had a blast photographing just before dusk. Can’t wait for their wedding in September at Mills Falls.

    New Hampshire Wedding on Lake Winnipesaukee | Joyelle West Photography - […] Lyndsey and Charlie were married in the lakes region of New Hampshire on Labor Day weekend. And who can resist a wedding where the bride arrives by boat? All of the activities surrounded the lake, and because Charlie’s family runs a greenhouse and nursery, colorful flowers were included in the decor at Church Landing. Since water is the main theme here, to refresh your memory on their engagement session by boat, click here. […]

Arlington Town Hall is a beautiful place, with old stone, ornately carved wood, and gorgeous gardens, so I was thrilled when Melissa and Aubrey chose it for their wedding. The weather proved to be a little on the damp side, so the ceremony, which was originally scheduled to be outside, was moved into the main hall. The stage made a dramatic backdrop to a very moving ceremony. One of the things that I loved about this day is that Melissa and Aubrey stayed true to their beliefs – they made sure that the food was locally sourced, they made sure the chocolates that they gave as favors were fair-trade, and they made a speech at the end of their ceremony about fighting for marriage equality in the US.

    Michael Bennett - My first reaction is: if that's Travis, he makes such a good Jewish boy! I recognize your dad, who is looking very proud. You look great, but so different from your teenage self. Luckily for you, or you wouldn't have deserved such a babe. Your new wife is truly beautiful, and she's looking at you with such affection!

    Michael Bennett - Mazeltov!

I’ve been photographing a number of events lately that I’ve had to keep under wraps, but I did get permission to post these two pics from my recent wedding at the Harvard Faculty Club. One of the bride and one of the ketuba signing. Enjoy!
