Hillview Country Club, North Reading, MA :: Wedding Photographer :: Stephanie + Tim (Part I)

It's really starting to feel like fall now; it's cooler in the evening, the leaves are just starting to change and I wore a sweater on the beach today when Paul and I took the dogs for a walk/swim.

So it only seems appropriate to start off this blog post about Stephanie & Tim's most excellent wedding ceremony at St Agnes Church in Arlington, MA and wedding reception at Hillview Country Club in North Reading, MA with a fall kind of photograph. I spotted these little acorns outside of Stephanie's parents home when I arrived for the getting ready and detail pictures. Oh and if you'd like to catch up on their engagement pictures in Boston you can click **here**:

As I carefully carried their rings back into the house I noticed that Stephanie's engagement and wedding ring fit exactly inside Tim's. So I couldn't resist one more, this time sitting on one of the stylish plates that the girls were eating their breakfast fruit and bagels from:

I've recently been working on always trying to find a new way of seeing things. So much as I was happy with the above picture, I thought it might be even more interesting to shoot through the window inside, plus who doesn't love a shoe picture:

Of course to have a wedding, you need to invite your guests:

Fun with the macro lens, I love jewelry details and when you have earrings like these...

Stephanie's make up was done by her amazing bridesmaid Shaina:

Her sisters Jennifer and Allison, Matron and Maid of Honor helped Stephanie into her wedding dress and even niece Bella assisted with the shoes:

I usually head out 15-30 minutes before the bride to introduce myself to the officiant and get set up for the ceremony. If the location and time allow, I love to get a great wide-angle shot of the church and it was excellent timing as Tim and his groomsmen walked into the frame:

I usually do most of my blog posts on weekdays when internet traffic is higher but if you'd like me to post the preview pictures of the ceremony tomorrow just let me know in the comments....
