Karen and Joe: I Live My Life To Be With You

Karen & Joe got married in March, on a beautiful early spring day! The snow was gone, the sun was out, it was perfect. Their ceremony was held at The United Church of Christ in Burlington. It was such a beautiful church! Their reception was held at Gibbet Hill in Groton. I was so happy we had good weather – Gibbet Hill is gorgeous! Karen & Joe are the kind of people you want to hang out with all day. Their wedding was so much fun to photograph! They welcomed us and made Doug, Emily, and I feel like we were part of the gang. I’m pretty sure that we’re inviting some of them to our hypothetical wedding. They knew how to have a party! Here are some photos from the day…

Husband & wife! Doug got this awesome photo of Karen & Joe walking back down the aisle. I had him stationed up in a little room that overlooked the ceremony. After the wedding, the church lady asked, “So, how did it go up there?” I replied, “I think it went great!” Then she said, “Well, he didn’t fall through, so…” Uhm… Was that a possibility? Look at that – Doug risks his life to get this shot.

Eventually, you’re going to have wedding parties climb on stuff.

Karen & Joe braved the wind to do a few more photos with me outside.

I love Gibbet Hill and this little arrangement when you walk in the door is just one of the reasons why. Karen is a teacher, so the chalkboard message is particularly fitting!
