Beachy, elegant, romantic, with unique details... What more could a girl ask for when photographing a summer wedding?! Courtney + Brenden's big day happened at the Singing Beach Club in Manchester-by-the-Sea. It's a private club right next to a beach I personally LOVE and enjoy as much as possible!
Thanks for stopping by the blog!! Come back to see more weddings!!
I was excited from the very beginning when Lili told me their wedding would be Mad Men inspired! Her and Jim picked the most charming Boston venue, and included such lovely details to pull the whole theme together! Take a peek! You'll love it!
Big thanks to my second photographer for the day Josh (who captured several images above), and shout out to a few of my vendor friends: Lori Lu's Floral Designs (Lili's Bouquet) and Kacie Corbelle (Lili's Makeup and hair).
Lili + Jim I hope you have the best of years together!!
I was honored to be a part of Kate + Ted's stunning, classic North Shore wedding! This NYC couple celebrated in style in the Mansion at Turner Hill in Ipswich. A gorgeous estate with a lot of character and beautiful grounds. There is SO much I could share from this wedding, but here are some highlights!
The day began in Newburyport at the Garrison Inn. Love the brick!
It was HOT HOT HOT inside the church, but water was passed out for everyone to drink during the ceremony!
Back to Turner Hill where we spent a little time with just Ted + Kate.
Absolutely obsessed with the red door!! A little pop of color can be amazing!!
How creative is the cake topper? Love it!!
Dinner was outside in the tent, and then it was back to inside where they filled the dance floor and celebrated all night long! The band was perfect!
Thank you so much Kate + Ted!
Special thanks to Brooke and Kelly, my second shooters, for an amazing wedding!
Nicole + Michael put together a very elegant and modern wedding! It was a steamy hot day, but we managed to endure the sun for a First Look session in front of the cliffs at Black Rock Country Club! I could have photographed in front of that rock wall all day long...
Here's their First Look session (if you don't know, that's when the bride and groom decide to set aside a special time for just the two of them, to see each other before the ceremony).
Super friendly group of girls which always makes the day nice! Thanks girls!!
Vivid colors and natural light flooded the reception room. Peaches, pinks, and light blue! And the peonies, OH the peonies (my favorite flower).
First dance and toasts!!
And to top it off, a gorgeous sunset!!
Thanks Nicole and Mike!! I'm glad we didn't melt. Your band was awesome!!
Thank you to my talented second for the day for capturing some of these images -- Cara Brostrom from Wonder-Bliss!
We really wanted to take advantage of the beautiful field and mountain view, but the grass was a little tall for Sanae to walk through. No problem Brian Says!! He picked her up and carried her through! So fun!
The bridal party was great! They made it a fun time for all.
And now for some really beautiful details!! Bikes, an ombre cake, chalkboards, maps, and each table adorned with items that represented a different country that has meaning to Brian + Sanae.
Thanks for your kindness and for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
I had heard a lot from photographer friends about the beauty of Harrington Farm. It's all true...
Brian + Sanae were married in June 2013 and not only did I love their venue choice, but I also appreciated all the thought and care they put into personalizing their wedding day and making it special for their guests! Forget about the 90 degree heat and blazing sun, it didn't matter, all eyes were on Brian + Sanae who were radiating with joy and love for each other!!
The bride + groom got ready in the Harrington Farm Inn -- where they were in separate rooms just about 100 feet from one another! The Inn is full of character throughout each room!
Brian + Sanae chose to do a First Look session. I love them all but the hug gives me goosebumps. So heartfelt and genuine!!
Straight from the Inn down to the garden ceremony. Flowers everywhere! So gorgeous!!
Amazing maid of honor alert! See that little spot inside the bride's veil? It's a bug! Notice the maid of honor's calm smile. She then proceeds to life the veil and remove the bug all whilst the ceremony continues undisturbed. Great job!!
Vows exchanged, sealed with a kiss, and now for the party! Blog #2 coming right up...
