Glen Magna Farm Wedding Pictures :: Laura + Charles

On this steamy hot Tuesday, I have a beautiful wedding for your viewing delight. Last month Laura and Charles were married at Glen Magna in the most wonderful celebration of two families, surrounded by friends and relatives.

I started my day with Laura and the girls in her suite at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA. 

Laura gave her sister, Gina, one of these Kate Spade silver bracelets with "partners in crime" and other fun sayings engraved. 

In Laura's suite there was all sorts of laughter, champagne, hair and make up and gift exchanges happening.  

Just one floor down, Audrey was with Charles and the guys, they found time to have a quick drink before heading over to Glen Magna. 

A short ride away from Salem, is the stunning property known as Glen Magna Farms where the wedding would take place:

Laura was helped into her BHLDN dress by her sister Gina, while her proud Mom Priscilla looked on:

Charles might just win the award for "best reaction during a first look"

We were joined by the wedding party for pictures

Family pictures: 

Laura and Charles asked their good friend Donny to  officiate their wedding ceremony and he did a wonderful job. 

I've photographed a number of weddings at Glen Magna and each time I'm there I'm wowed by the beautiful grounds and gardens. 

Laura explained she was nervous to walk down the aisle alone but couldn't imagine walking with anyone other than her father, who sadly passed a while ago. Charlie met Laura half way with a big smile and a tissue.

The wedding ceremony was so personal, with Laura's mom and Charlie's parents both writing a marriage advice letter which was shared:

We took a few minutes for some "just married" pictures before Laura and Charles joined their friends and families at cocktail hour (spectacularly catered by Vinwood). 

The tent looked beautiful with the orchid centerpieces made by Laura's mom Priscilla.

Hilarious, touching and emotional toasts by Laura and Charles, Laura's sister and MOH Gina, Charlie's brother Justin and Laura's brother-in-law Jason. 

After dinner, Laura and Charles danced their first dance as newlyweds: 

White Label DJs were fabulous as always, Adam kept the dancefloor packed:

Laura & Charlie, thank you SO much for choosing me as your wedding photographer. It was so great getting to know you both and it was an absolute honor to photograph your wedding. Tons more
