Kassy & Jenn's Log Cabin Wedding
OK are you ready for a blog post that will fill up your heart? This will! It's a bond of love, a marriage and a beautiful family of 4! I couldn't imagine a happier occasion this day. I know Kassy & Jenn would be able to tell it best in their own words, so I hope you'll read on:
What is the first thing you remember about the other when you first met?
Kassy: The very first thing I remember about my first interaction with Jenn was that she was just as spunky and sarcastic as me. When we met face to face over four years later, the first thing I remember is how cute it was that she couldn't even look at me without blushing! I remember how confident, independent, and down to earth she was and most importantly how she didn't seem to take life too seriously.
Jenn: The first time I met Kassy face to face, I was very nervous. I remember seeing her walk towards me and I felt she was out of my league. We hit it off immediately and I knew that it was the start of something amazing. Her smile made me feel at ease.
Was there a memory from your wedding that sticks out more than others?
Kassy: The memory that sticks out the most from our wedding day was Jenn's reaction to me signing while voicing my vows to her, as a surprise. It was absolutely perfect!
Jenn: I actually have two things that stick out more than others. First is when I saw Kassy coming down the isle. That moment is one that I have replayed often. She looked absolutely stunning and in that moment I didn't notice the guests, it was just her and I. Everything felt perfect. The second is when we went out side by the fireplace to take some pictures and thankfully Tricia encouraged us to sit for a minute and just enjoy each other. We chatted for a few minutes and just enjoyed being with each other, laughing and catching up on some of the things that happened during the day.
What is one piece of advice that you would give to other couples planning their wedding?
Kassy: I'd say to focus on the things that are most important to you. Have your wedding represent who you are individually as well as a couple. Do not worry about the small things because in the end it's not worth it. If your wedding is outdoors, then the weather forecast may keep you quite occupied the week of the wedding!! Think outside the box and have everything be exactly how you want it. Maybe start some new traditions!
Jenn: Wedding planning can be stressful, or should I say it will be stressful. Be patient with each other. Pull each other aside during the reception even if it is just for 5 minutes and enjoy the moment. The day goes by fast.
Why did you choose the wedding venue/location you did?
Kassy: Initially, we decided to pick a location in between each of our families. From there we searched venues and came across The Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA. It totally wowed us so we decided to go take a peek. When we got there and saw it firsthand we knew that it was the perfect place. More than four years later we went back after starting our family together and there was no question at all about having our wedding there (twins happened and everything was pushed back a bit). Once again, we knew it was exactly what we wanted. We were completely blown away by the incredible view overlooking the mountain.
Jenn: When Kassy and I started looking for venues online we came across the Log Cabin and fell in love with the venue. We knew immediately that was where we wanted to get married. The view is amazing and it was a central location for Kassy's family and my family to travel to.
Can you name the Top 3 things about your relationship that you love the most?
Kassy: Our dedication to one another, continuous support for each other in all areas of each others life, and our overall genuine love for the other.
Jenn: Our ability to complement each other is what I cherish the most. We work through and together on everything that comes up. My second would be the support. We support each other through our home life, our professional life, education, etc. We always want the other to be happy not only personally but in our life that we have built together. The third would be her love of our girls. I love seeing her raise Kenleigh and Camryn. I often watch from the sidelines the way she interacts with them and I am continuously grateful and thankful for our family.
Why did you choose Tricia to document your wedding day?
Kassy: We have followed Tricia's work for several years and love the way she captures moments, emotions, and special times that should never be forgotten. We love how clean and bright her photos are and how each and every Image is "magazine perfect." In addition, she was extremely organized and prepared which made me very comfortable because I knew she would keep everything under control. One more thing is from the first time I talk to her she always spoke to me as if she's known me my whole life and it made me feel very comfortable with her.
Jenn: I couldn't imagine not having Tricia. The entire process was smooth and organized. We had several guests comment on the professionalism displayed by the photographers. We have had so many comments on the sneak peek photos already and excited to see the rest!!
