My blog features beautiful humans of every shape, size, race, gender-presentation, sexuality...and more. This is the place where I get to celebrate them and tell their stories.


MEET MY PEOPLE and SEE THEIR STORIES.

…Now Dogs,
Dogs say I love you constantly
and every day.
They are the best of us, covered in fur.
But today, the day of your wedding,
Socrates doesn’t poop in the aisle
and if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.
And he spent the day wandering
with a cheery grin and slightly manic eyes,
because dogs may not understand all our goings-ons
but they sure do understand what happiness feels like.

by herself
after steaming it
herself
while taking a few moments
to herself.

Lindsay and Richard chose that second option.

From celebrating other family members birthdays and anniversaries, to delighting over a handmade paper doughnut topper, these two kept it relaxed and joyful the whole entire time.

Amy and Greg: A Heartfelt Community Wedding in Charlemont, MA

People are really into "adult-only" weddings these days. After all, kids are disruptive to the "perfect day." They destroy any illusions of perfection. They force us to improvise. They blow through the best-laid plans. They have meltdowns and needs. They giggle, they play. They hang on glass doors wearing their best shirts. They are so...utterly...unabashedly human.

Amy and Greg aren't afraid of human. They didn't want a wedding that felt like a sterile escape from the things that make life full - they wanted one that would celebrate all those things. Community, family, friendship and love.
