I am just wild over this bride's wheat bouquet.  I love that it has a rustic vibe but looks so modern at the same time.  It is so perfect for a New England, fall wedding especially this one captured by  Anna Sawin Photography.  Every moment she captured is so delightful and every detail this adorable bride and groom created is just darling.  There is so much love and emotion throughout the entire gallery!  See it all here!

From Anna of Anna Sawin Photography... Stephanie and Ben created a feast for the senses with a glorious outdoor fall wedding filled with beauty and creativity. On that misty mountaintop in Massachusetts, all of us there were reminded that it all comes down to something so simple — two people deeply in love, surrounded by those who know and love them most. With rain most of the night before the wedding and all morning the day of, we prepared for weather at its wettest. But 30 minutes before we arrived, the rain stopped, and a beautiful mist unfurled itself across the valley while we stood on the mountaintop. A teary bride and a choked up groom exchanged tender, heartfelt vows, and then, all smiles, walked hand in hand down the aisle to bagpipe music — fitting for the misty blue and green valleys below.

After a record 35 minutes for family, wedding party and couple portraits including four locations (don’t try this at home, folks — unless your clients are both photographers who scouted the locations in advance and know how to pay attention to fading light!), we arrived at the famed Blue Heron Restaurant. (Last year, it was home to the wedding celebration of Sue Sylvester, a.k.a. Jane Lynch!) The bride and groom danced, dined and were toasted — the room seemed to envelop them in a giant hug.
