Jessica and Grey: Super cool, beautiful, laid back, fun, mega smart and, boy, do they know how to throw a wedding!
It had been a few years since I shot a wedding at the Castle Hill Resort and Spa down in Ludlow and I forgot how totally gorgeous it is and especially how beautiful it looks during Foliage season.
I just love weddings that explode with unique details that capture the couple’s personalities and this was definitely one of those days. Everything was stunning, from Jessica’s gown and sparkling Jimmy Choo sandals (paired with the flower girl’s gold and jewel studded Rapunzel wedding shoes) to the custom fresh flower leis flown in from Hawaii for the wedding party and family members, to Grey’s silver monogrammed Tiffany cufflinks (a gift from his bride).
I should mention that the bridesmaids all looked gorgeous, too!
Look how cute Grey is! (I think he looks like a young Donny Osmond!)

The ceremony, though a bit on the rainy side, was beautiful, blending cultural traditions of both the bride (Chinese) and Groom (Hawaiian) and I also loved the pastor’s colorful garment, adorned with a large “JOY” stitched on the front!
After cocktail hour inside the castle, the rain let up and guests made their way to the tent for an amazing dinner reception. Food was delicious and DJ Newton Peak from Peak Entertainment kept the party in full swing all night with great dance music.
I love this picture of Grey dancing with his grandmother and Jessica in the background with her father!

The flower girl (Jessica’s niece) almost outstaged the bride on the dance floor. She was like the energizer bunny, refusing to run out of battery power until the bitter end!
The following is a fun slideshow recap of Jessica and Grey’s celebratory day- with a little old Pet Benatar (“Here Is My Heart”):
