Topsfield, MA

Congratulations, guys, on winning the honeymoon vacation on TLC’s “Four Weddings”!  Your wedding was truly beautiful, and (not that we are partial) we fully expected you to win!!  Seriously, this wedding was crazy… Four Weddings did not even begin to cover all the wonderful details we had the pleasure of photographing.

Of  course, the sum of a wedding is not the dress, details, or the reception party; the most important part of the whole day is the commitment being made before God to love and support each other for the rest of this life.  John and Vincenza have a deep commitment and love for each other; their wedding carried great meaning far above all the beautiful details of the day.

The venue, Willowdale, is one of my favorites.  It is an old stone mansion in Topsfield, MA.  They have a gorgeous little courtyard where they had planned for an outdoor ceremony, but because of hurricane Sandy, the ceremony was moved inside the reception tent.  I love Vincenza’s dress; it suited her so well, and she looked amazing in it!




This tub is in the master suite at Willowdale; Enza’s three bridesmaids were her nieces, and her sister was the matron of honor.


John and Vincenza had a first look session prior to the getting married; by this time the house was filled with guests in the other rooms, awaiting the ceremony.








The bride and groom decorated the mansion with personal photographs…

Not only was the cake stunning, it was sooo delicious!!






Cute moment:


The up-lighting in the reception was gorgeous.






After the cake was served, an espresso bar opened, along with a buffet of Italian cookies:


Then, fresh cookies and milk shooters; we had some on the way out, and they were still warm from the oven.  If I got to go back and do my wedding all over again, I would definitely do this!!

More goodies…

The dancefloor was jam packed the entire night; the DJ did an awesome job, and we had so much fun photographing this crowd.  Thanks, John & Enza for inviting us to share in your wedding day!!
