Adam and I are getting married today.  Not really feeling sleep coming on anytime soon, so I thought I’d update for the first time in forever. Hi. I’m getting married in a few hours. :)

As you know, A & I have been serious about not using corporations for any aspect of our upcoming wedding– being student business alumni, we feel strongly that the economy must support small and local businesses… And precedent/experience shows that the smaller companies often provide better quality service than the larger ones. Case in point: David’s Bridal. I’ve never met anyone who was satisfied with her experience, save one girl who magically needed no alterations to the gown she purchased there. I bought my dress at New York Lace, a Taunton mainstay with a 100 year reputation and a selection rivaling Priscilla of Boston’s— and couldn’t be happier.

The same goes for photography. While photography firms certainly have their benefits, the most special thing about our wedding experience thus far has been the personal touch of having a friend take pictures for us. Steph Steven’s is a Pioneer Valley-to-Boston transplant with a background in corporate photography, but she figured out fairly quickly that while gigs with one-day turnarounds have their merits, what she loves is the personal aspects of her job.

And, since she’s a veritable natural spring of energy, she started Steph Stevens Photography, her very own business. You know I admire that kind of ambition in a girl, so it was almost never a question of who we’d hire. Steph is a close friend of my dear love Cait, and when we saw her website and blog, Adam & I agreed her style was perfect for the big day.

The calendar has been updated to reflect some neat stuff going on around here. I personally am looking forward to Poetry on the Green, which is next week in Westfield. I’ve been looking for an excuse to go see Lori Desrochiers read, and this time it’s outdoors! Perfect.

This tornado loves you.

I have to post this now, because I’m still emoting over how awesome, professional & talented Steph is. I can’t wait to share more pictures from the engagement party with you! If you’re looking for a photographer,  I personally think you should hire her. Like, yesterday.

It was an incredible night, with many friends & family celebrating with us– we are moved and amazed by your love, spirit & generosity. More photos to come!
