Lord Jeffery Inn Wedding >
I met Leanne + Cole almost immediately before their ceremony as a last minute fill in for their original photographer who decided not to show up for work that day. Thankfully we have a tight community of wedding professionals here in Western Mass, so when the Lord Jeffery Inn called with a Wedding Emergency to see if I was available within the hour, the only question I had was “Is the couple nice?” I was told they were so I loaded up my gear and sped off to Amherst.
Upon arriving at the venue I was quickly introduced to Leanne + Cole and, as advertised, they were super nice. They were also super happy someone was available on such short notice after the unprofessional behavior of the no-show. We did, however, carry on.
My time with them and their families began with the ceremony. As Leanne was escorted down the aisle by her parents, she immediately jumped into Cole’s arms as this was the first time they saw each other that day. They both smiled excitedly throughout the ceremony which culminated with Cole stomping on the traditional glass.
We made our way to the Lord Jeffery Inn’s library for family portraits, and then stepped outside for a few minutes to make some portraits of just the two of them amongst the flowers still in bloom in front of the Inn.
After being introduced into the reception they went immediately into their first dance which was sung by Leanne’s sister. Some heartfelt toasts were given, which both caused laughter and moved others to tears as stories were told about the family’s journey leading up to the wedding day.
With lots of dancing and an energetic hora behind them, we went outside for some nighttime portraits, after which Leanne + Cole danced the night away.
Here are some photos from the day…
