Ilda & Mike’s fall Berkshire wedding at Cranwell Resort was just stunning. The couple chose the Berkshires because of the beautiful mountain views, the fall colors and the grandeur of the historic estate.

Ilda and her family are from Albania, a country which is rich with tradition. Ilda’s grandparents made the journey from Albania and were a very important part of the wedding. Not only did Ilda’s grandparents raise their own children but also raised Ilda, her brother and her cousins. She has a very strong sense of family and a close bond with them all which was very apparent throughout the day. Ilda’s cousins were her flower girls and they wore the most beautiful Albanian costumes. I loved the red accented with gold as it added a richness to the ceremony. Ilda had a family member officiate the wedding which included some beautiful Albanian poems and a beautiful song played by close friends. The reception also included a beautiful speech given by Mike’s parents, a slideshow presentation from the couple to their guests and the most hilarious slideshow given by Ilda’s parents to the couple.

Mike and Ilda are both very much into physical activities; rock climbing, running and most of all crossfit. They also both enjoy chocolate! Each of the tables were named after chocolate truffles such as dark chocolate, milk chocolate and peanut butter. Each of the place settings also had a Lindt truffle so perfectly placed across the napkin. One of the couple’s favorite part of the day was when they got to eat their Banana chocolate-chip cake!

The evening continued with excellent food, lots of laughs and a ton of dancing! Mike and Ilda we had a blast at your wedding!

Here is a beautiful wedding shot at Cranwell Estate in Lenox, MA. I second shot this wedding for my dear friend, Tricia McCormack. I love second shooting because details become my job, especially during the getting ready portion of the day! Kaitlyn had beautiful details. A beautiful Maggie Sottero lace gown embellished with the most beautiful taupe crystal belt. The taupe went nicely with the bridesmaid’s blush gowns. She finished off her look with a nude pair of Louboutins. *swoon*

Photographed for Tricia McCormack!

I teamed up with Tricia McCormack Photography, from Lenox to showcase the beauty of the Berkshires and the exquisite elements that make that area the perfect place to tie the knot. The combination of Cranwell’s historic charm and the contemporary details provided by some of the Berkshires top wedding vendors provided these beautiful images! Enjoy!

 

Carolyn made up two beautiful bouquets. One was more traditional while the other one included purples to match our brides gorgeous Vera Wang gown!

How romantic is this table scape!? I love the terracotta pot with the cabbage roses and white lilac dripping down the side. Reminds me of an english garden.

Adrienne and her husband were married at Cranwell 10 years ago! This was such a great experience for the both of them to relive their wedding day 10 years later!

I loved all the dark wood that was inside of Cranwell. It was so moody and the light was just beautiful!

Andrea Wadsworth did an amazing job on the cake and the cookies were to die for! What a great idea as a wedding favor!

I LOVE this tree! It was such a fun element to incorporate into the images.

The chemistry between these two were incredible! Thank you both for an amazing day!

A HUGE thank you to all the amazing Berkshire vendors who helped pull this off!
