I have always loved working at Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, and Ann and Jared’s wedding was no exception. It has been one of the most popular locations for weddings in Essex County. I love the proximity to the beach, the indoor/outdoor ability to shoot and most recently, what they’ve done to cater to weddings being hosted at their location. Creating an indoor reception venue that still does justice to the feeling of an outdoor wedding. Despite the unseasonably crazy heat we had been getting around this time, the day stayed cool and mother nature made sure that everyone was happy. It’s wonderful when couples host their entire wedding at the same location. Family and friends together all day sharing cocktails, laughs and dancing the night away.
A summer evening with this beautiful couple.
We’ve had the pleasure of knowing Brooke for many years now. I’ve worked with her on so many amazing projects and it’s always been an amazing turnout, she’s an incredible model. When Brooke told us that she wanted us to capture her day we practically shouted yes! It’s a day we’ve been looking forward to for awhile! Brooke and Ryan, together are such a fun couple and working with them on their wedding day was perfection.
We miss you over here in Windsor! xoxox
We’re very familiar with Macedonian weddings, having done a few of them over the years we know what to expect and we always look forward to them! They are long days filled with dancing, music, drinking, singing and some more drinking (not in any particular order). The distinct feature of Macedonian weddings is that the bride and the groom travel to the church together. The groom’s family visits the bride’s family first. There, they are meant to “buy” the bride, after a good dose of price negotiations. This time around, the groom’s family or ‘representatives’ came well prepared – they had an endless supply of “Slevo” and cash to match.
The wedding ceremony took place at St. Nicolas Macedonian Church. From there, we went to Sprucewood Winery and headed back for the wedding reception at the St. Nicolas Macedonian Hall. What a fantastic day it was!
Sanela & Nik are an awesome and gorgeous couple to work with. Thank you both for having us be a part of your day!
