Turner Hill Wedding Photographer :: Julie + Jonathan (Part II)

It's Sunday evening, maybe you're playing some holiday music, maybe you're decorating your tree, maybe you have chestnuts roasting on an open fire...why not make some hot chocolate or have a glass of Baileys on ice to enjoy part II of Julie & Jonathan's Parisian/Peacock themed wedding extravaganza at the Mansion at Turner Hill.

If you missed the getting ready pictures you can find them **here** and the wedding ceremony pictures at Our Lady, Star of the Sea **here**

We're now at Turner Hill in Ipswich, MA. Turner Hill is one of the very best North Shore wedding venues. They have a beautiful outdoor wedding chapel, an ivy covered terrace for cocktail hour, a large tent with teak dancefloor, numerous rooms inside the mansion for dancing etc - it's an absolutely stunning location for a wedding:

Julie and Jonathan arrived in style:

With some delicious little hors d'oeuvres to enjoy we took some relaxed family and wedding party pictures:

I am in love with this picture of Julie:

I feel like there's an kind of Alice in Wonderland feel to the grounds of Turner Hill. I could have photographed Julie and Jonathan together all day :) I had to limit myself to 10-15 minutes so they could enjoy cocktail hour though ;)

I had my super talented photography BFF Kate McElwee along with me for the day. We try to shoot for each other at least once or twice a year as it's a really refreshing experience, I'm looking forward to returning the favor for Kate in January :) Kate took some fabulous detail/set up pictures while I took guest pictures at cocktail hour. Loved the tiny French postcards attached to a birdcage acting as escort cards and the French arrondissement signs as table names:

Julie's friend Chuck acted as MC to make the introductions and he was AWESOME!

Julie and Jonathan entered the tent to cheers and whoops and went straight into their first dance as husband and wife followed by some fairly hilarious toasts:

With dinner finished everyone adjourned to the mansion for the cake cutting:

This was the second time this year that I've seen The Pulse of Boston at a wedding and they ROCKED it!

Happy parent dances:

Julie & Jonathan's friends and family definitely know how to dance and have a good time!

Julie & Jonathan - I can't believe it's all over!!! Well, for me, not for you two who have the rest of your lives together! From that first meeting over martinis and truffled popcorn to learning about the delights of Regina Pizzeria to your impeccably planned and executed wedding, it has been SUCH a pleasure!!! I'm so happy I got to document your wedding day! Wishing you a lifetime of love involving lots of trips to Europe and long happy dinners of pasta and chianti!
