Maddie and CJ have such a special place in my heart! Maddie has been watching my kids since Ethan was 3 months old. She is just the sweetest person, our family loves her so much! For Ethan’s 2nd birthday, they came to his birthday party and asked Ethan to be their ring protection agent! You can see that blog post here.
When Maddie and CJ came to me to talk about their wedding photography, I was so excited they chose me to capture this day for them! We started documenting their love story together a year before for their engagement session in Plymouth, MA. You can see their engagement session here. It was so much fun getting to hear wedding plans each time Maddie came over to spend time with my kiddos. The year flew by and we couldn’t have been more excited to celebrate these two! This was Ethan’s first wedding ever. It was a family event!
Maddie got ready at her childhood home in Kingston, MA. Everything was so nice! Her mom had an adorable box of all things Maddie when she was a baby displayed so nicely in her room. Her baby bonnet was part of the details which I just loved so much. You could just feel how much she is loved. By her parents, and everyone she meets. Maddie and CJ are such genuine people and their wedding day reflected just that. It was a true fairy tale.
During the parent dances, Maddie and CJ had shared the dance floor with other moms/dads and their sons/daughters. It was really sweet and something I have not seen before at a wedding, and, since Ethan was there, I got to dance with my baby! Seriously, at every wedding, I get emotional during mom and son dances….what? I’m a boy mom! The DJ played songs I remember from growing up and I couldn’t help but to sing along to a few songs… They even played a song from Lizzie McGuire and Princess Diaries and I am not going to lie…I knew all the words…!
Maddie and CJ, Thank you so much for all you do for my family. It is so wonderful knowing that my kids love you, and you both love them in return. It was an honor to capture your wedding day. Thank you for inviting my family, including myself and my son, and for trusting me to document your story for you. It means so much to me that you chose me to be your photographer. Thank you for your wonderful wedding prep and completely organized wedding timeline! You made my job so easy! It was so fun to get to watch Ethan and Autumn be apart of your wedding day. It’s so heartwarming with how much you guys truly love them. They were the cutest! I wish you nothing but the best in years to come!
