Adena & Andrew: A Seven Hills Inn Wedding // MA Wedding Photographer

June 23, 2012 I was out the door early. I had a little driving to do between home and Adena and Andrew’s wedding at the Seven Hills Inn in the Berkshires. Coming off of a pretty good stretch of dismal rainy weather, it was glorious to see sun Saturday morning. The 3+ hour drive out to Lenox, MA went quickly enough accompanied by my good friend David. Before too long we were rolling into the Inn. As we wandered around, I was floored at the attention to detail in decorating the Inn. Family pictures adorned mantles and shelves; fresh flowers were everywhere. This was especially impressive because Adena and Andy planned their Berkshires wedding from Colorado! They definitely had a vision, and I think it was realized on this warm June day. So, here’s a glimpse at what went down…

I began with the ladies getting ready. We walked in on Adena’s makeup being done…

Yup, looks good, and a great portrait on the right that David captured!

The ladies were abuzz, flitting all around… in heels, of course!

Adena’s dress featured beautiful lace work…

I loved the flower girls peeking from the hall as Adena got dressed. They did not stay outside long though…

David wandered down the hall to capture a few shots of Andy getting ready…

And I caught up for a few portraits too…

And with the guys…

Back inside there was time for a few portraits with Adena and her bridesmaids…

They had picked a spot a few minutes away to have a first look. Andy was blindfolded and escorted by his mother to his eagerly awaiting bride…

We lingered a few minutes extra for portraits…

The weather was gorgeous, but it was hot, and there were a few rolling thunderstorms lingering too. The umbrella may have been a little overkill for the spitting rain, but we had to protect Adena’s hair… and it’s kind of fun too.

Back at the Inn there was time for a handful more portraits…

With everyone together and the passing thunderstorm abated, it was time to have some fun and get the marriage thing underway!

Time to go…

A few details before the ceremony captured by David…

Adena being walked down the isle by her father…

… to be met by a very happy groom…

Quite a nice spot for a wedding ceremony, I think…

Yay, married! Off to the reception. I mentioned Adena’s vision. I loved all the details…

How’s that for bling?

The new Mr. & Mrs…

There were three wonderful toasts. the highlight being Adena’s father’s song where he even pulled out of his pocket a harmonica…

Parent dances led to Adena and Andy’s first dance…

Which went a little sideways, intentionally! Halfway through their song the DJ bobbled the music and then cut into a well choreographed dance by the newlyweds. Well played!

Then the party kicked off…

Adena’s grandfather was enjoying himself, I think…

Our departing shots were of a rousing Hora chair dance…

And I’ll end with a final portrait out in the lawn of the Inn…

Thank you Adena and Andy for having me along to document your big day and your wonderful family and friends! Thanks also to David for joining me out in the Berkshires for the day and for your always excellent images!
