Coop’s Event Barn 2016 wedding season ended on Saturday, October 29 and it was chilly- okay, it was cold! While Keith had met the bride and groom, Shelby and Shane, I had not met them until the day before their wedding.  By this time Keith and Shelby had become pretty consistent email-pals (like pen pals, but over email).  I had a strong hunch I was going to love Shelby and I wasn’t disappointed.  Her immediate hug and huge personality brought a warmth that set the tone for a very special weekend.

Jaimee from Jaimee Morse Fine Art Photography was able to express the sentiment of this wedding like I’ve rarely seen before.  They say it’s about the details, the little things, the images captured – but to be able to import an imagined narrative into every photo, that’s a rare gift. Jaimee’s website says she is telling beautiful fine art wedding stories in New England, the midwest, and the world, and for Shelby and Shane – at Coop’s on October 29, 2016-Jaimee more than delivered.

There were many special elements I could share about this wedding – from the wonderfully gracious family and friends to the skilled vendors who not only beautifully set the stage (the team from Decor by Lavendar  was here into the wee hours making everything beautiful) but prepared and served up food and beverage to delight the guests.  But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Shelby’s tenacious effort to bring joy and surprise to Shane by having an arcade game delivered to Coop’s by Summit Amusement – the same arcade game they played on the night they met.  The look on their faces says it all, so I’ll leave it at that.

Thanks Shelby, Shane, and your families and guests for making the last of 2016 one of the VERY BEST!
