Shannon & Joel were married at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield Massachusetts. The Salem Cross Inn is one of my favorite venues since the grounds are so rustic and beautiful. It was completely fitting with Shannon’s personality. It was also fitting of all of her over the top details! She put together so many DIY projects it was unbelievable! They all turned out so gorgeous. Between that and their eagerness to take a ton of amazing pictures, it was a dream to photograph.
Shannon and Joel have been together for twelve years! They also have two extremely cute children together. Even though they’ve been together for so long, that did not stop the tears from flowing on their wedding day. They decided to do a first look and when they saw each other, they had to wipe the tears from each other’s eyes. It was so sweet to see the amount of love they still have for each other all of these years later.
The Salem Cross Inn is also extremely dear to Shannon because it’s also the same venue her parents were married at 34 years ago. She made a toast to her parents and then she had them dance to their first dance song together alone on the dance floor. How special is that?! I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It was so nice to see a moment where everything came full circle. That’s what I loved most about this wedding!
Thank you Shannon & Joel and all of their vendors as well! You all made the day so smooth and most of all fun!Venue: The Salem Cross Inn Wedding Coordinator: Events by Jackie M DJ: TJ Productions Flowers: Green Thumb Florist Hair & Makeup: Crystal Vasquez & Co. Cake: June’s Bakeshop
