I am so excited to share today another amazing wedding, that’s not just beautiful or timeless, but also has one of my favorite families in it. Back in 2013 we shot Jennifer & Aniello’s wedding, where we first met the DeNardo clan. When we were contacted by Aniello’s cousin, Marco, to shoot his upcoming Massachusetts black tie wedding, we were pumped.
These guys come from this large, energetic, Italian family where everyone is simultaneously laughing and yelling in both English and Italian. I walked into their house before the wedding and a dozen or two people were running around, some getting ready, while others prepared vast quantities of food which will be displayed on platters throughout the kitchen. “Eat, eat!” they tell me, pushing various meats, cheeses, and pastries my way. Now, this is my kind of family.
Becky and Marco don’t just come from an amazing family, they are completely amazing all on their own. Throughout their entire wedding ceremony, Becky kept sneaking glances at Marco, which made her smile and in turn led to laughter. They were giddy and care-free, exactly how I love to see my couples on their wedding day. Their celebration began in the South End of Springfield, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel church. This is a special church to the family; many generations of this family before them were wed at this very altar. After the ceremony was finished, they invited their family and friends to continue with the black tie festivities down in nearby Agawam.
