Two weeks ago today I was photographing the most amazing winter wedding at Tupper Manor at the Wylie Inn and Conference Center in Beverly, MA on the North Shore. Emily & John are still on their honeymoon but I thought they might like to relive their wedding with this handful of my favorite images from the day.
I started my day at M. Lekkakos where Emily was having her hair and make up done:
Emily opened a note from John which had to contain one of the best wedding gifts ever - the promise of a new puppy!
Les Fleurs in Andover, MA who did all of the flowers - just wait until you see the centerpieces...
The wedding ceremony was held at the First Congregational Church of Hamilton. Pastor Dorington Little led the most thoughtful, meaningful and even amusing service. When I asked Emily & John what they were most looking forward to about their wedding day they both independently said it was the ceremony - how important it was to them and how they couldn't wait to be husband and wife.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour:
Tupper Manor looked amazing with gold chiavari chairs, gold chargers accented with a ribbon-tied sprig of greenery and birch-wrapped centerpieces by Les Fleurs:
Night Shift Entertainment who are, in my opinion, one of the best wedding bands in New England. The dancefloor was literally bouncing all night. I was only able to get this picture as guests were eating dinner - the rest of the night you could barely move! If you're still looking for a wedding band then I can't recommend Night Shift enough - they're amazing.
After dinner Emily danced with her dad and John with his mom:
John's Navy and Marine friends had a surprise for Emily as they sat her down and serenaded her with "You've lost that loving feeling". I worked with the super talented Jim of Boston Wedding Films at this wedding - it's always a pleasure to work with the BWF team and I cannot WAIT to see the wedding film!
