Laugh More. Pose Less.

Talk about the perfect day for a central MA barn wedding. It was gorgeous sunshine for Mary and Corey’s wedding at the 228 in Sterling, MA. I guess that’s what they get for waiting two long years for their wedding day to come! The day started at the DoubleTree in Leominster, MA with an absolutely amazing glam team. Just look at this magic that Jennifer M. Viveiros and Lifted Locks created! Some say Mary resembles Kate Winslet and others say Adele. I can see both!

The wedding ceremony took place under a beautiful tree on the grounds of the 228 in Sterling. The bride and groom both had wonderful expressions when they saw each other for the first time. There were both serious and funny moments, and then they were married. Formal photos happened on the road leading up to the wedding barn. What struck me most was the way the grooms eyes would light up when he was looking at his bride.

After cocktail hour on the patio at the 228, the couple made their grand entrance into their reception in the wedding barn. Their wedding entrance music was wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin’s entrance music. The guests went absolutely NUTS!

The rustic wedding barn venue was the perfect backdrop for a bbq dinner, funny speeches, and dancing. Afterwards most guests found themselves outside by the bonfire eating s’mores. Mary took her gown for a spin by the front steps, while the guys attended to some car stuff out in the parking lot. Too funny! It was a wonderful day for a wonderful couple. Wishing them a lifetime of happiness.
