Katherine and James' Cape Cod Wedding || Sandwich, MA

It was a muggy morning in the beginning of June when I was heading to my first Cape wedding of the season. I will say I’m definitely a bit biased towards Cape weddings because I personally just love being there. No matter where you go on the Cape it’s usually beautiful. When I first got there, I met Katherine for the first time in-person while she was getting her makeup done. The first thing you feel with Katherine is a genuine warmth and kindness. She kept making sure all of her friends were having fun and kept playing with the adorable dogs that were keeping everyone company that morning. A few of my favorite photos from the day are definitely the photos with her and the dogs.

From getting ready we went to the venue, Heritage Gardens and Museum, to do Katherine and James’ first look. By the way, this venue is absolutely stunning. Just beautiful greenery and flowers everyone. I think everywhere we went that day was just seriously stunning. For their first look we had to hide Katherine away in the woods, and then got James in place. When they saw each other for the first time that day, I have never seen a bigger smile than that on James’ face. He was absolutely ecstatic to see Katherine in her wedding dress and the two of them just shared sweet moments together.

Their first look ended by hearing some screams from a golf cart nearby and seeing their bridal party heading over to this carousel on the venue’s property. By far one of the cooler things I’ve seen on a wedding day. This entertaining bridal party had so much fun on the carousel and then again during the photos outside.

When we were heading over to the ceremony site, I was completely in awe of the ceremony site. It was in a beautiful open field with this metal sculptural fountain behind them. They started their ceremony with audio from the movie “The Princess Bride,” you know the one, the one about marriage that was completely apt for their wedding day. The whole ceremony was so personal and true to them. Katherine’s aunt, started reading an advice for marriage quote and then several friends and family stood up from their seats to each read a piece of advice. One of my favorite parts was when the two of them read their own personal vows. I feel like this ceremony really was a peek into who these two are, and their beautiful relationship. After a kiss and huge cheers from the audience, we quickly grabbed family portraits before it started to rain.

Their cocktail hour was filled with drinks, lawn games, photos in the classic cars (located in the auto museum at the venue) and fun. Their bridal party had an awesome entrance and then everyone was treated to some absolutely beautiful speeches by the Best Man (James’ older brother) and Maid of Honor. I will say that the Best Man speech really got me, he was so emotional talking about how much his brother means to him and how much he loves the two of them. It was definitely one of the best speeches I’ve heard from a Best Man.

After the dinner came the dancing, and because they practiced in front of me during sunset photos, I knew that Katherine and James’ first dance was going to be absolutely amazing. These two choreographed a dance and absolutely killed it, everyone was screaming with excitement. To top it off, Katherine and her dad also did a special dance to a mix of songs. That kicked off the dancing for the evening and then everyone danced the night away. It was such a fun, perfect wedding to kick off all of my June weddings. These two are such seriously kind and sweet souls, and I am so happy to have been a part of their wedding day. Congratulations again you two!

Jennifer and Dave's Andover Country Club Wedding || Andover, MA

I met Jennifer and Dave about a year before their wedding, they were so bubbly and excited for their future and the best part is that nothing changed between then and their wedding day. The start of their wedding day was a little cloudy but shortly before arriving to photograph the getting ready portion of their day,

Jennifer was surrounded with friends and family to start the wedding day, and it was the same with Dave. One of the sweetest moments of the day was when Jennifer saw her dad for the first time that day. Sharing such a sweet moment just the two of them, which would be even trumped by a later moment.

The church was filled with all of their friends and family excited to celebrate the two of them, it was a lovely ceremony and filled with a little laughter as well. During the vows Jennifer said something along of the lines of “I promise to Facebook,” which made everyone in the church crack up. After these two were officially married, they both pumped up their arms in excitement.

The fun didn’t stop there, the start of their reception brought in unique and joyful moments such as their first dance being to a remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” that had some latin music remixed in. Her and her dad killed it on their dance together, and I totally think her dad wins for the best dancing father in a father/daughter dance. One of my favorite moments of the day was how happy her father was hugging her after that dance, and all the while Dave looking on so happy.

The speeches were also amazing, with Dave’s best man talked  about the day the two became friends. In his speech he told everyone how Dave sent him a note saying that he wanted to be friends and listing his other friends as references. Jennifer’s friends also killed it reminiscing about their friendship and when Jennifer and Dave started dating.

Jennifer and Dave’s family and friends rocked the dance floor all night. It didn’t matter what song was on, everyone was up and dancing all night, creating the perfect atmosphere for a celebration of their marriage. It was a perfect first wedding of the season for me, and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to start off my 2018 with. Congratulations again Jennifer and Dave, you two are so perfect for each other!!

Megan and Karl's Glen Magna Farms Wedding || Danvers, MA

I met Megan and Karl through a bride from 2016, Leanne, who was in grad school with Megan. Megan and Karl are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet. I was lucky enough to capture their engagement session back in April of this year, and got to know them during that and leading up to their wedding day. I was a little bit worried because the morning of their wedding day there were a lot of storms in the area. It kept raining while I was with the ladies getting ready at the salon but luckily the rain broke upon arriving to Glen Magna Farms. 

Glen Magna Farms is one of the most beautiful venues I have been to, there are gardens everywhere and the perfect place for a lovely and kind couple like Megan and Karl to get married. With the weather clearing, we knew we would be able to get a first look out by the gardens. Karl had such an awesome reaction to seeing Megan for the first time in her wedding dress, I just love how giddy and excited they were to see each other. It was such a perfect first look. These two were troopers, and still wanted to walk all around the grounds for their first look even though the ground was a little wet. 

Once the ceremony started, I knew I was in for a treat. The justice of the peace was amazing, she was candid and making everyone laugh throughout the entire ceremony. There were so many moments where the bridesmaids, Megan and Karl, and all of the friends and family members were laughing so hard. 

Once the reception got started we were treated to some funny and heartfelt speeches by Megan's dad, Karl's best man (and also his cousin) Calvin, and Megan's matron of honor Frances (a best friend that Megan has known all of her life). I loved hearing these speeches because it's so telling of how loved Megan and Karl are, and how important these relationships are. After everyone sat down for the meal, the real party got started. Their band Booty Vortex rocked the house with their funk covers. One of the most fun bands I've witnessed at a wedding to date. They had everyone on the dance floor to songs like "Brick House." It was such a fun ending to such a wonderful day. Megan and Karl are two of the nicest, kindest people you will ever meet, and I wish them nothing but happiness in the coming years together. Congratulations again Megan and Karl!! Thank you so very much for letting me capture your wedding day!
