Amy and Vinh – A Shabby Chic Backyard Wedding

Amy and Vinh….. Where do I even begin?? Over three years ago I received an email from Amy who was interested in purchasing a gift certificate for a friend who was having a baby soon. I met her at a Dunkin Donuts with my son Jack, and was greeted by such a warm smile!! During the past few years she has gifted so many newborn sessions, including her own niece’s! And I had the pleasure of meeting her mom and dad as we did a Fall family session. So when Amy contacted me about her own engagement, I was SO EXCITED! I had spent so much time capturing the lives of her friends and family, I was honored to finally be able to capture her own love story! 

We took their engagement photos at Hammonesset State Park at sunset, right where Vinh proposed to Amy. They were so easy to photograph, there affection for each other was perfection. (HAHA see what i did there??) 

Amy and Vinh said I DO at Amy’s childhood home in Ludlow. But WOW, it did not feel anything like a backyard wedding. I felt like I was at a wedding venue. The second I walked up there were details in every area of the yard! Shades of green and pink, lace, antiques, and family heirlooms. It really did look like fairytale. 

Down the hill surrounded by family and friends is where they said their vows. The sun was shining and smiles were everywhere! I found familiar faces everywhere, so many past clients from Amy’s gifting! How fun was it to see babies I photographed all grown up! 

After the ceremony we took Amy and Vinh with their pups to Ludlow Mills, such a fun location. We had plenty of time to get all the shots I wanted! (That doesn’t always happen!) 

The night started off with the first dance with the song by James Arthur, Say you won’t let go. I will admit I was getting teared up and Vinh buried his head in Amy’s shoulder. So sweet. I love weddings, they never get tiring. I truly felt more like a guest, than just the photographer. Thank you Amy and Vinh. Love you guys!!
