While in college, I took up golf and it’s always stuck with me. I love the smell of fresh cut grass on a golf course, it’s the best. This golf course wedding definitely took me back to that smell, place and time that I love so much.

With my tux on and my partner Lyn ready we headed out to Brenda’s parents house for the getting ready shots. We arrived at 1:00 P.M. sharp. After a brief conversation with Brenda’s Dad I was photographing her wedding dress and accesories. It was hot and humid that afternoon so I worked quickly to get outdoor shots of Brenda’s bride’s maids and her parents. The limo was in the driveway at that point and I took a few shots of her Dad helping her into the limo. Off we went to the wedding venue, Butternut Farms Golf Club in Stow, Ma via the GPS scenic route.
Once we arrived I went looking for Ed and his groom’s men and best man. I didn’t see them the first time around the building and figured they where on their way. On my second search for Ed I found him and his guys getting ready in the men’s room. I take it upon myself to be as helpful as I can to the bride and groom so when I saw Ed with his tie out in front of his vest I suggested he tuck the tie behind the vest. Ed and his Dad, bestman and two groom’s men where in the lobby helplessly holding onto the boutonniere, not knowing how to pin them to their lapel. I volunteered my help and pinned all of them, Ed was again grateful for the help.
Ed graciously thanked me and off I went to check on Brenda. She was all set and ready to go. After a brief rundown of the ceremony with the minister I was ready to photography the wedding. It was an outdoor ceremony on the first tee and lasted about a half hour. Lyn was on the balcony in the second floor window overlooking the ceremony and I moved around trying to get every angle possible. We both took over two hundred shots of the ceremony.
I always enjoy being the first one to congratulate the newlyweds at the end of the ceremony. I reached out and shook both of their hands and congratulated them, mentioning how wonderful the ceremony was.
