Jackie and Kevin's Wedding || Eastern Point Yacht Club || Gloucester, MA

Jackie and Kevin’s wedding celebration started a few days earlier on Thursday evening, when I helped capture their welcome party for family and friends traveling from further away. Both Jackie and Kevin have international relatives that flew in for the celebration which made it even more special. The morning of their wedding brought beautiful weather, perhaps the best fall day you could ask for. When I arrived at Eastern Point Yacht Club, Jackie and her bridesmaids were having fun already in their adorable matching robes. I started with all of the details in the most beautifully sun drenched room. After capturing all of the little details, I captured some fun group photos of the ladies outside on the deck and then Jackie started to get into her wedding dress. Jackie had her mom and her maid of honor helping her into her dress, and each took a turn in helping to button all of the buttons she had up the back of the dress. Jackie was seriously beaming from this moment on. One of the most special moments was when Jackie after stepping into the dress with all of her jewelry on, went out to show her bridesmaids and her mom. There were more than a few happy tears in that moment, it was so sweet seeing how excited each one of her friends and her mom were for her.

From here, I grabbed Kevin and we got in position for the first look. Jackie and Kevin were so sweet together seeing each other for the first time that day. They were both filled with smiles and joy. This carried over to the bridal party photos we took with the rest of their crew, and my second photographer even headed out on a boat with the guys. Definitely some of the most unique bridal party portraits. We captured some beautiful family portraits before the ceremony (another perk of doing a first look is having time to do all of these portraits before the ceremony), and then hid the bride and groom away for the big moment.

The ceremony was filled with lots of laughs, lots of mentions of rats in old apartments, and lots of sweet moments between Jackie and Kevin. Their officiant, Matt Sachs, did an awesome job, and had everyone captivated. After officially being announced, these two were absolutely ecstatic. One of my favorite photos from their wedding day is from right after they were officially married, the two of them are just grinning from ear to ear.

After sneaking Jackie and Kevin out for some sunset photos, they called an end to cocktail hour with the help of a tiny canon. It was so loud, something you would never know just looking at it. With that, their beautiful reception started and their bridal party danced their way into the tent. The reception started with their first dance, and Jackie and Kevin spun their dance away delighting everyone. These two were so sweet and had such a beautiful first dance. This was followed by a speech by Jackie’s dad who had everyone in stitches, and also recognized how much work Jackie’s mom Anne put into the wedding day as well. After a brief break for salads, we then were treated to two of the most sincere and lovely speeches by Jackie’s MOH, Julie, and Kevin’s best man (and brother), Bryan. Both had so many sweet stories of how close they are to the two of them. I definitely think they both win for some of the most beautiful and touching speeches I’ve heard to date.

Later on, Jackie and her dad shared their father/daughter dance, and Kevin and his mom shared a dance as well. This kicked off the awesome dancing portion of the night. This group had no problem getting up and having fun to every song. Such a fun group and a wonderful end to the night. Congratulations again Jackie and Kevin, I know you two will have many travels and adventures to come!

Maria and Kevin's Wedding || Stow, MA

Leading up to Maria and Kevin’s wedding we weren’t sure if the weather was going to cooperate or not, it was raining off and on all morning. So we really had no idea what the weather had in store for us. I came in to Maria’s family’s home to all of her bridesmaids and family so excited for the day. There was a ton of laughter and make up being done. After grabbing detail photos of her gorgeous shoes, I moved on to the her veil. This veil is incredibly special, as it is the veil that all of the women in her family wear. As you can see in the images below, this veil has the wedding date of each woman who has worn it sewn in a different color (one of the their wedding colors as well). This was such a beautiful heirloom that I had to grab several images of this. After a flurry of activity and a lot of laughter with her sisters getting Maria into her dress, we left for the church (which was right down the road).

Although it was a bit warm in the church that day, the ceremony was lovely and finished with Maria and Kevin grinning from ear to ear. You can see how happy they were immediately upon getting married and in the few quick photos we got right outside of the church. From there we headed over to the Wayside Inn Grist Mill, and though we weren’t expecting it, the sun actually came out. So we were able to grab some fun photos with their big bridal party around this beautiful area. After we finished with the bridal party we did some couple portraits of these two, and I just loved how Kevin kept making Maria laugh during portraits, it was so true to their relationship and show how at ease they are around each other.

When we got to their wedding reception venue, the sun was still out and we were able to get some sweet photos with their family and shortly after getting inside, it started down-pouring. We could not have planned it better if we tried. After intros, Maria and Kevin had a sweet first dance complete with tons of dramatics dips and twirls. We then were treated to a sweet and funny speech by Maria’s sisters and then one of the funniest best man speeches. Kevin’s best man, Adam, had given Maria and Kevin a questionnaire to fill out before the wedding day and each did not know what the other had written down. It was so hilarious to see how varied their answers were. The best one was a description of their best case scenario for traveling, in which Maria’s answer was a lot of planning and getting to the airport early, and Kevin’s answer was in packing the morning of and getting to the airport right before the flight. Though these two had different answers, his best man had the best way of wrapping up the speech by saying these two compromise better than anyone he knows and that’s how they work so well as a couple.

After these beautiful speeches, we got lucky and the downpour let up a little bit and we were able to get outside for a few sunset portraits, and in the best turn of weather we actually had a rainbow come out during their sunset portraits. I feel like it was such a sign for the day, a beautiful symbol for this beautiful and happy couple. Congratulations again Maria and Kevin, I absolutely loved working with 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!!
