Indian Pond Country Club Wedding, Kingston, MA :: Caitlin + Micky (Part V)

Monday, January 3, 2011

OK lovely blog readers, it looks like Monday/Wednesday/Friday posting is preferred so that'll be the plan going forward. Of course if I'm feeling particularly talkative and I've got lots of pictures to share then I might post more often but I can't imagine that would be a problem ;)


And we're back at Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston, MA for Caitlin & Micky's wedding reception.

Why not join us in the beautiful glass foyer to collect your beautifully calligraphed escort card (Caitlin reports that LetteringsbyLiz was just wonderful), enjoy some crudites, cheese and grapes, have a cocktail and sign the rather lovely guest book (Engagement Photographs and book by ?Yes, me!


Whilst Micky and Caitlin enjoyed a cocktail before taking more formal pictures with their extended families and friends, I made a quick dash around to get some detail and set up pictures.

Indian Pond is such a beautiful wedding venue. It's remarkably close to Boston. The grand ballroom looked beautiful with the roaring fire, the gold chiavari chairs, tiny candle votives and Godiva truffle favors awaiting the guests:


Here's where I slip off my ballet flats, balance precariously on a chair and crane over the table to get an overhead shot with the super-wide 14-24mm lens :)


Caitlin has magnificent taste. I particularly loved how she chose whites and spring green flowers (Awesome Blossoms by Helen - see vendor list at the end of this blog) as the accent to the chocolate brown of the bridesmaid dresses and invitations. Although it was a chilly November day everything looked so elegant and fresh.


Time for the entrance of the wedding party:


Very funny speeches:


The cutting of the cake:


In fact the cake (Veronica's Sweetcakes - see vendor list at the end of this post) was just so lovely and I caught such funny expressions from Caitlin & Micky I think we'll have some more cake pictures:


A dash back to the foyer for a quick picture of Caitlin & Micky with Caitlin's cousins. No problem!


First dance as Mr & Mrs O'Kane:


I was torn between showing you the picture above as I love the way Micky is looking at his new wife or this one below. So to heck with it. I'll show you both:


Caitlin danced with her dad.
Dear Guest with the camera held in the air. Thank you for taking your picture at the exact split second that I did. I love the little starburst I got! Best Wishes. Leah:


Micky danced with his Aunt Mary:


Time to get this party started.
DJ for the wedding was the most excellent Kevin Stallings of Good Times Unlimited. I've worked with both Dave and Kevin a number of times now and I really can't put into words how great they are. It goes without saying that the dance floor is always full; they do an amazing job of sensing the mood of the crowd and they are just so professional. I'll always get a quick heads-up before any key event like introducing guests/toasts etc and that makes my life SO much easier. If you're still looking for a DJ for 2011 then I can't recommend anyone better than Good Times Unlimited.
