Shelly and Joe’s Sturbridge Host Hotel Wedding.

I loved working with Shelly and Joe, they were both laid back but also excited about the photography for their big day.

Let’s hear about their Sturbridge Host Hotel Wedding from the two of them.

How did Joe pop the question?

Asked me to go to my parents house (out of the blue) We brought all the kids to my parents house, had my parents and my brother all in on it…He took off with my father and brother, to the basement for guy time..then came upstairs to me with our son Brenden (1 1/2yo) and had him ask “Will you marry my daddy?” Everyone was so excited!!!

The Photography!!! We enjoyed having our friends and family there to celebrate with us!

Beautiful chaos leading up to happily ever after!

What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding

Take as much time as you can planning, but whatever you do get it done and don’t procrastinate!

Tell me about your dress. Where did you find it, how did you choose it, how did you know it was the one?

I found my dress at David’s Bridal, my matron of honor and my brother came shopping with me, as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I cried! We all agreed it was the one!

Did you see each other before the wedding?

We chose not to see eachother prior to the ceremony out of tradition.We wouldn’t change it, it was perfect! Choosing not to see eachother is truly a preference. We are each others rock, so it was strange not to have my other half to lean on and talk to about my feelings and emotions.

We love to hear about vendors you love?
