Summer in the Berkshires … does anything sound more lovely? This musical mecca, nestled in the western Massachusetts mountains, attracted Christine and Spencer each summer with concerts at Tanglewood, so it was only fitting that they celebrated their wedding at this magical place. “I am a music teacher which is part of the reason we found the Berkshires,” says Christine. “I worked at a music camp through the BSO, fell in love with the area and soon took Spencer back with me! We love going to Tanglewood concerts every summer and had a vision of inviting all of our guests to join us for a concert and picnic the evening before our wedding.”
When searching for a venue for their wedding, Gedney Farm checked off all the boxes. “It fit our vision perfectly. It has that rustic elegant feel and the food, staff and property are wonderful.” The pastoral property was the perfect backdrop for their celebration filled with sunflowers (the bride's favorite!), mason jars and wooden slab centerpieces. Sentimental details, such as mom's wedding dress lace around Christine's bouquet and the wooden ring box handmade by Spencer's dad gave a heartfelt touch to the day. And the couple surprised guests by Christine singing “Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac with Spencer on the guitar after their first dance.
