Julia and Shane were married at Julia’s parents’ rustic Westford home on July 4. Unlike some of the rowdier weddings we’ve experienced, Julia and Shane’s day had an elegant and understated feel to it. Rather than a DJ or band, there were classical violin and bagpipe performances from family members, and people volunteered to man the grill instead of bringing in a caterer. After the ceremony most people immediately got into comfortable clothes and the party took on a casual family BBQ feel. Shane, who’s British, had family travel from overseas for the wedding. They tell me Shane proposed at Disneyland in Paris. Adorable! So happy for you, Julia and Shane. Congratulations!
We thought of Julia and Shane today when they sent us an ‘aloha’ from their honeymoon in Hawaii. Full web gallery to follow soon!

Lisa and Matt were married on her parents’ beautiful property in Manchester, Vermont on a drizzly afternoon that cleared up after the ceremony. It’s easy to see why they chose to get married at their parents’ place – the landscaping is immaculate and roomy, with a view of the southern Green Mountains. They were married under a trellis Lisa’s dad built, and her sister, a florist who owns The Vintage Rose in New Hampshire, provided the flowers. Jeremy, Lisa’s brother-in-law, made the coolest fortune-teller style place settings and Matt’s brothers provided hilarious toasts. This was a perfect example of a small and intimate but intensely meaningful wedding. So happy for you, Lisa and Matt! Congratulations!

We are thrilled to present our first post on our brand new blog! We’ve moved for a number of reasons: aesthetics, ease of posting, and a lovely slideshow feature which will allow us to give brides and grooms a sneak preview of their wedding before making it public to our blog readers. Other fun things: a Facebook “Like” button feature for each blog post, a unique domain name, a navigation bar up top and lots of informative pages.
The new blog is accompanied by our new Neon Sky site which we are equally thrilled about. Anyways, we’ll be expanding on our site and blog content in the near future so check back often to see the latest news and work!
