Lauren + Eyvi :: Bascom Lodge Berkshires Wedding
Monday, glorious, Monday...My friend Amy taught me how to make foamy milk for my coffee which has helped me cut sugar out. I enjoyed a delightful latte topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon this morning and almost finished it before it was time to bring Lil to school. It's important to have goals in life. Drinking an entire cup of coffee while it's still hot is an ongoing one of mine. Someday...
It's time to share Lauren and Eyvi's wedding! When Lauren and Eyvi contacted me about photographing their wedding, I was so excited, because it meant returning to Bascom Lodge at the top of Mt. Greylock, a favorite place of mine since shooting Tiffany and Andy's wedding there the September prior. I love the Berkshires, it's such a special part of Massachusetts and I wish I could spend more time there.
Eyvi and Lauren are such a sweet couple. They're kind, funny, and have this ease with each other that made photographing their wedding day a joy. It was important to them to spend plenty of time with their friends and family. Eyvi is from Iceland, so many of his childhood friends were there to celebrate, as well as his family. Their friends were so funny and I really enjoyed getting to spend this day around them.
There was also the most amazing sunset - I'm talking warm pink sky and a brief sprinkle that resulted in a rainbow over the summit! It was perfect. Like, a photographer's dream.
Lauren's dress was vintage that she found on Etsy, and Eyvi wore traditional Icelandic dress. There were a lot of small, personal touches to their day, things that meant a lot to them personally but also to their friends and family. It was an honor to spend this day photographing their celebration!
