A Romantic DIY Spring Wedding at Elm Bank Reservation

Allison and Kory hosted their gorgeous romantic wedding this spring at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, MA. The day was overcast, and all afternoon the softest, prettiest light made all their details look even lovelier and gave the celebration an extra-dreamy feel. I knew that Allison was going to DIY a lot of her decor, but when I showed up, I was blown away by all the work she put into everything. She made the signs, the seating charts, the centerpieces, the invitations, and just about everything. Even her wedding bouquets were DIY. And everything was so beautiful. The romantic pink peonies fit in perfectly with the bridesmaids’ mismatched gray dresses and Allison’s show-stopping Pronovias ballgown. Kory and his groomsmen kept it classic with black tuxes.

And Elm Bank was the perfect setting for this elegant day.  Their gardens and greenhouses provided endless opportunities for photos, and luckily Kory and Allison budgeted a lot of time for us to explore them during portraits. These two are also so much fun. Their guests and them danced long into the night and Stoked Pizza truck even came to serve up some late-night pizza!

Thank you to Amber Shomo for second shooting this one with me!
