Wendy & Greg | Chocksett Inn Wedding

Hello Fall in New England!! Wendy and Greg were married at the end of October at the Chocksett Inn in Sterling, MA.  We were a bit worried about the weather, as it rained off and on throughout the day, but when it was all said and done, the rain held off during all of the perfect times!!

My day started with the guysat Wendy and Greg’s beautiful home and the foliage was KILLER!!!

I have done three weddings of couples in this photo and just about the whole group has been at all three weddings! I believe everyone in this group is married at this point, so I am so sad to think that I won’t be reuniting with them at any more weddings:(  I wish you all the best!!!chocksett-inn-wedding-ma-wedding-photographer-heather-chick-photography-142-3j4a4347

Bride/Groom Questions

What was the most memorable moment of your day? For the bride: Seeing Greg’s face for the first time as the church doors opened. For the groom: He says ” the same!” haha

What was your favorite detail? For us, our favorite detail was our memory table and dedication song to Gregs parents. We wanted to do as much as possible to include those we love who couldn’t physically be there in person with us on that day.

Any advice for future brides/grooms? Both of you will have different memories from the day so try to stay together as much as possible. It is amazing sharing the same memories. When you walk into your reception stop and look around. Take that moment together to look at everyone and really take in the happiness and joy that everyone is sharing with you. It may be the only moment that you do get to share together. It goes by so fast and really is over before you know it.

Funniest memory from your wedding day? Our friend splitting his pants right down the middle…in half! Then needing to wear his brothers shorts over them. (his brother is the priest!)

If you could do it all over, would you change anything? Nothing! It was perfect. It was everything that we ever could imagine plus more.

Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went to Hawaii- the looongest flight ever! We visited 3 of the islands… Oahu, Kaua’i and Maui. Amazing!
