Groveland Fairways :: St Monica's Church, Methuen, MA :: The Wedding of Lori + Kris (Part II)

Hello! Did you miss the getting ready pictures? If so, you can find them **here**. We're back at St Monica's church for part II of the brilliant wedding ceremony of Lori & Kris and coming up will be the wedding reception at Groveland Fairways.

Kris stood next to his best man at the head of the church and couldn't quite keep still:

Nerves? Anticipation? Excitement? He clasped his hands, then put them behind his back:

The doors of the church opened, the guests stood up, the music played and Lori walked down the aisle on the arm of her father. I love that Lori is looking at Kris and her dad is looking at her mom:

Kris saw Lori and was happy:

The best kind of wedding ceremony features laughter:

Unity candle:

Prayers and blessings:

And by the power vested in me by the state of my blog, I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride:

Lori & Kris paused in the doorway of the church, looked at each other and then Kris gently kissed Lori's forehead. I don't think they even knew I was there:

I really can't tell you how much I love the next pictures as Lori and Kris exited the church as newlyweds. I guess a pictures tells a thousand words but I think there's just one word here. Joy.

I think you should come back tomorrow for pictures at the reception...would you like to see more? Feel free to comment below....


  1. HOLY COW! I love the very last one of Kris looking at Lori. *Sigh* SO romantic!

  2. I've known Lori since she was a little girl... I had no doubts that she would be nothing but ABSOLUTELY STUNNING on her wedding day! Seeing her family brought back a lot of memories! Leah, you are a fantastic photographer! Makes me want to get married again!
