A Classy Winter Inspired Wedding at Avenir in Walpole, Massachusetts

It is so bittersweet writing this post! It seems like wedding season just started and now here we are in the last 15 days of the year and time has just flown by.

I am obsessed with the fact that my wrap up wedding was with Maria and Matt!! Their vision for their day was so gorgeous and everything came together in such a magical way. Their wedding was winter inspired and the whole day was so cohesive — from the silver and white tones, to the touches of that frosty, wintry baby blue, to the FAKE SNOW for their first dance and cold weather for their ceremony. It was all flawless.

I especially was spoiled that their wedding planner, Kawinthi who is AMAZING, welcomed me to the start of the day with styled details all ready for me to go!! And their venue… oh my GOSH was it stunning!!! I have never photographed a wedding at Avenir before but holy moly was it elegant, stunning and classy. The perfect venue to go along for their wintry vision.

A notable part of the day was when I was in the next room over in the hotel shooting their details, and everyone was ready to go. And the girls were all having a moment… sharing their admiration for Maria, having nothing but beautiful and kind words to say about being able to play their role in her day. It truly was so sweet to hear that moment. AND… I just want to give a shoutout to Maria’s Maid of Honor who kept me refreshing Maria’s Instagram stories for the daily surprise leading up to the wedding! Her MOH made this countdown board that had little goodies and notes for her to open each day, and Maria would share it to her stories and it was so fun following along with that little adventure!!

All day long Matt and Maria were surrounded by the most lovely people. I loved their momma’s who were so just sweet, and everyone in their wedding parties just helped keep the day light and fun. I even got to see their pupper, Gracie, for a little bit on the big day and that to me was a perfect little touch!!

Maria and Matt… thank you for having me celebrate you alongside all your friends and family. Your wedding day was simply magical and I am SO excited to showcase my favorites with you here on the blog!! My LAST wedding of 2021 and my LAST wedding at 9 months pregnant!!! It truly was a day to remember!! ❤️
