Christa + Dawn: Married

Seven years ago Brett and I moved to the Pioneer Valley and landed in the sweetest of houses in South Hadley. Luck was on our side for so many reasons but the biggest one was that Brett's sister Christa happened to live right around the corner. 

When Christa and her partner Dawn announced they were getting married we did a dance in the living room and then on their front lawn and possibly in a few other places. We couldn't wait. In May they exchanged their vows just the two of them and then at the end of the summer invited friends and family to their home for a backyard celebration. And guess who got to capture all this joy and beauty? You guessed it, ME!

So much love and care went into getting their home ready for this special day. Dawn, a talented woodworker, made all of the corkscrews, which they gave as favors. Christa outfitted the backyard with vintage-inspired flea market finds and pieces she had refinished. Burlap runners, bamboo plate ware, bird-themed linens and platters, ball jars, handmade buntings and so many more personal touches made their day so beautiful. 

They also surprised everyone by reenacting their vows under the pergola. And with a conga line to follow, you couldn't hold back a smile. Christa and Dawn, we love you so much and can't wait for many more evenings dancing on your front lawn and toasting to this sweet life. xoxo
