Peter+Kensie | Chapel Of The Cross | Westborough, MA | Doulos Photography | Central MA Wedding Photographer

You may recall that we recently took engagement photos for Peter and Kensie (see those here) in the snow and had a great time. Their wedding day was much different weather, thankfully 🙂

Both the ceremony and the reception were held at Chapel of the Cross in Westborough, MA where Kensie’s father is the pastor.  Peter’s brother (Andy Needham of the Andy Needham Band, check them out!) used to work at the church as well and he was the one to perform the ceremony.

The guys and girls stayed on opposite sides of the church to get ready – but both had lots of fun. They guys got to hang in the youth room, and the girls had the conference room. The conference room is a great place for brides to get ready and have portraits – there is so much natural light with the large windows overlooking the wooded area behind the church.

One of our favorite moments of the day was when dad saw Kensie for the first time – so sweet and special! Mom was able to be a part of this special time as well – though all others were kicked out for the special time.

The ceremony was beautiful – just like the bride!  All of the thought that went into every detail was astounding. We loved that the ceremony and the reception were both held inside the church. After the ceremony they had a cocktail hour in the foyer while helpers cleared the chairs out of the sanctuary from the ceremony. Then, the party moved back into the sanctuary where there was food and dancing, not to mention a live band.

While all of that was happing inside, we were outside with the wedding paryt. We had a blast with them – they were so fun and easy going.

All in all a fantastic wedding for a fantastic couple – many years of happiness you guys!

Family Mini Sessions – Westborough, MA

We recently participated in a fundraiser for our church’s youth group to help raise money for a mission trip they will be taking this summer. They’re headed to Ensenada, Mexico to help at a YWAM base for the second year in a row. We offered mini sessions to families and donated money to the trip.

We had two families take us up on this deal – the Ryan family and the Fraher family – both were awesome, but very different families!

The Ryan family has older kids – middle school and high school age. It was so fun to watch their interactions together and hear some about their lives. They just moved to MA in the last year from the west coast. They are a silly bunch, that’s for sure – we laughed a lot with these folks.

The Fraher family has 2 young girls – both super-cute! Rhiannon again did a lot of silly things to get them looking at the camera as David shot that day. We’re convinced the key to working with young kids in a photo shoot is to keep things moving quickly so they don’t get too bored. Another good trick is to let them pick a pose, then you pick a pose, etc.

Mom and dad were great sports too in this shoot – willing to do anything to get the girls into it. They did silly walks, funny faces, and asked silly questions too. Again, we really enjoyed laughing and playing with the Fraher family!
