I spent the Saturday before Thanksgiving with Janine & Cameron at the Cranwell Resort in Lenox, Massachusetts. To say it was beautiful would be to understate it. They had some pretty amazing weather for anywhere this time of year, but especially for being late November in the Berkshires!
They opted for a first look and it was awesome. To the masses, Cameron isn't a super emotionally expressive guy, and Janine's sister nailed his response to seeing her for the first time. I believe she said something like, "You look great, and cheeseburgers are great, too." Now, of course, Cameron didn't actually say that, and I will say that his response was pretty great. No doubt he was impressed with what he saw when he turned and saw Janine for the first time.
And, look at her dress on the stairs! Every time Janine went up or down the stairs the only word that came to mind was "CINDERELLA". Seriously. All that was missing was for her to lose a shoe and Cameron to retrieve it and claim his princess. Ah, love.
We did a few photos outside and then finished up with the family pictures. From there it was ceremony time. They did a ring-warming during their ceremony, which I thought was a really cool idea. I have only seen it done at one other wedding, but I thought it was a nice way to incorporate all of your guests. The wedding bands are passed between guests and each person says a prayer, or a good thought or wish for the couple.
Their reception was awesome! They had a great DJ who had no trouble getting the dance floor going!
Congratulations on your marriage guys! Thanks for allowing me to share in the memories!
