Josh and Emily and Stonover Farm, Lenox, MA by Abby Lorenz

WHAT A DAY we had with Josh and Emily at Stonover Farm in Lenox, MA last month! I awoke that morning in my hotel room to a beautiful romantic cloudy day...which within a couple of hours had turned into a full on downpour with thunder and lightning. But like some kind of wedding day magic, the rain stopped, but left behind a beautiful slate gray sky casting a perfect soft box of glowing light all over this gorgeous rustic but elegant Berkshires wedding. Emily and Josh planned this amazing day and the love was absolutely palpable amongst their friends and family. 

HUGE thanks to my amazing second photographer on this one, Masao Okano! 

And now: Kate and Luke at Portland Company by Abby Lorenz

What a way to premiere 2016 blog season than with Kate and Luke at Portland Company! This day was a dream from beginning to end. It was the perfect alignment of the stars: Kate and Luke are deliriously in love, they picked an amazing venue, hired an all star team of vendors and most importantly--they trusted their team to run the show for them, allowing them to be fully present with each other and their friends and family. This is how we are able to capture those incredibly authentic, real moments of the couple and their loved ones--because they allow themselves to relax and enjoy and let us take care of everything for them. Kate and Luke should write the book on how to enjoy your wedding. 

But for now, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:
