Bowling alley rehearsal dinner in Great barrington, MA

Western Massachusetts wedding celebration in the Berkshires

Lauren and Matt know how to throw a party.  They hail from Cali, Matt working as a playwright and Lauren occasionally providing the voices for animation series'.   Even over our initial video/skype consultation I felt an immediate connection with these two humans.  Something they have the ability to create with anyone and everyone, given their fun loving and gentle spirit.  Their weekend started buy taking over the "The Cove" bowling alley in Great Barrington.  It may look familiar, as it was the inspiration behind many scenes in The Big Lebowski, and provided a backdrop for BBQ and laughter throughout the evening.  The wedding celebration was hosted at the stunning Gedney Farm, with their ceremony atop the hillside knoll, cocktails outside and a fantastic dance party in the barn.  Complete with an epic fireworks display to top off a grand evening.  My lovely wife Connie (of Studio Atticus) attended the day with me, experimenting throughout by shooting the gorgeous Leica Monochrom digital camera.  Her images are featured below and in the gallery alongside my own.  A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in this day, especially Casey and her team at Katie O' Events for their perfect coordination and for going above and beyond in a way rarely seen in event planners.  Beautiful flowers/tables by Colie at Flower Scout.  It was fun working alongside Cam from Birke Films Cinematography.

A special note that Lauren is developing a special niche for fitness/education/care/love for mothers called The Mama Method.  Go check it out.
