A Foodie Wedding at the Belmont Wildlife Sanctuary

mollytravis_focstudio_40Hello! It’s that time of year again, and I started my season with the most perfect wedding ever, the kind where we vendors huddle in a corner during our break and say, How can we make this happen again?! Molly and Travis were married on a fine – if breezy – spring day at the Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont, Massachusetts. I’ve photographed here once before and have looked forward to going back. Everything on this day was beautiful beautiful beautiful. There was a magnolia tree in full bloom. Coral peonies the size of Texas. Handlettering on handpicked rocks. A colorful and delicious four-course meal (food was very important). Wine. A cake in the prettiest shade of chocolate. A guitar and sax/clarinet jazz duo, because that’s all you need. Rabbits in the yard. A white getaway car. A most beautiful bride, a most handsome, giggly groom, and their closest friends and family gathered under a small copse of trees. I’ve got about a million pictures to show, so perhaps I don’t need to say much else. Except, Congratulations Molly & Travis! I felt so lucky to be a part of it all.

  • This venue is the perfect small wedding place! I love tables under those trees (even though the lack of a tent makes me so squeamish in our lovely part of the country!)
