I had the pleasure of photographing James and Holly’s fall wedding at Independence Harbor in Assonet, MA. Holly is a fellow photographer, so the pressure was really on! Working in the wedding industry, Holly was so prepared for her day. She planned all the details perfectly. Perfect wedding day planning is no easy feat. James and Holly were absolute rock stars!
When I first started in this crazy wedding business, I didn’t really have a preference on doing the first look. As time has gone on and I have gotten much more experience, my mind has been changed. The first look is where it’s at if you want a laid back feel to your day.
Holly and James were able to get their first look AND wedding party photos in all before the ceremony. They were able to get to their cocktail hour with plenty of time to eat and grab a drink before being announced.
Independence Harbor will ALWAYS be a favorite venue for me. The garden there is breathtaking year round. There are so many options all in a quick walk, making portrait time super easy. Best of all, the staff knows what they are doing! Every wedding flows flawlessly. Holly and James’s wedding was no exception.
One of my favorite details at Independence harbor is the fireplace in the reception space. Nothing could be more perfect for a cool fall evening. Most importantly, the guests LOVE it!
