Rachel and Patrick’s Zukas Hilltop Barn wedding in Spencer, Massachusetts was one I won’t soon forget. Their ceremony was at the chapel at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, where they met freshman year! The day started with the girls getting ready at Zukas Hilltop Barn and the men getting ready at a nearby hotel. I loved the spacious bridal suite provided by Zukas for the ladies to get ready in. I couldn’t believe it when everyone was actually ready ahead of schedule(?!) and we grabbed some fun shots out on the front lawn before the girls got in the limo to head to Holy Cross. Meanwhile, my second shooter Brooke was capturing some shots of the guys getting ready. The ceremony at St. Joseph Chapel at Holy Cross was beautiful and emotional. After the ceremony, we had time to take portraits at some beautiful and noteworthy spots around campus, including the couple’s freshman year dorm! Then it was time to head back to Zukas for the party. There were some hilarious toasts, lively dancing, group photos with college friends, and of course some celebratory cigars on the gazebo.
Enjoy the photos, several of which were taken by my wonderful second shooter Brooke Alexander. Rachel and Patrick- thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day! I had an amazing time and wish you both the best.
Update: This gorgeous wedding was featured along with a Q&A from the bride on Wedding Boston! Be sure to check it out.
