We met with Caitlyn & Andy on a cold day in March for their engagement session at Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord. Andy is a history teacher, so what better place than the location of the battle that started the Revolutionary War? The wealth of locations full of beauty and history that New England has to offer will never get old! It was a blustery day, but Caitlyn & Andy came prepared with cozy accessories, and also brought along a few more cool props. Caitlyn is a fan of Harry Potter, while Andy loves comic books, so we were able to incorporate those for a great personal touch. We had a great afternoon with Caitlyn & Andy, and can’t wait to spend their wedding day with them this fall!
Marie & Emily were married on a cold day in February at the Renaissance Golf Club in Haverill. They both got ready onsite, and had a great time doing it – many bottles were popped, and a Pope hat was broken out very early in the day, so that’s always a good sign for the night to come! Marie looked perfect for a winter wedding, with a fur shrug and bright red lip popping against her white gown. while Emily complimented her perfectly in a navy blue suit and pops of red in her plaid tie. They met for their First Look on the path behind the building, with the wedding party cheering them on from above. It was cold, but the sun was out and there was just enough snow on the ground to make everything glow and feel like that perfect winter wedding. As you’ll see, Marie & Emily have a great time together, and spent the whole day laughing with their friends, so the cold didn’t bother them a bit! Once we finished up, everyone went inside to thaw out before the ceremony. Marie & Emily were married by a friend (the one in the Pope hat from earlier, as a matter of fact), and read their vows through laughter and tears. Once they said I Do, it was time to party! Their friends toasted them, they danced with their Dads, and never left the dance floor all night. It was a gorgeous winter wedding, and these two are so much fun to spend a day with – we were so happy to be a part of it!
Nicole & Nick were married on the first Saturday of 2019, in a wintery wedding in Cohasset. They both got ready at the Red Lion, where the reception would be held – Nicole and the girls were getting hair and makeup upstairs, while Nick and the guys were tying ties and sipping whiskey under the heat lamps down on one of the Red Lion’s many porches. Once everyone was ready, Nicole and Nick met for their First Look on one of the gorgeous, old wooden bridges – they were both glowing and so happy to see each other! Nicole’s gown was amazing, with beautiful detailing on top and a layered skirt that floated as she walked – stunning! We stuck it out outside for a few more photos with the bride and groom and their bridal party, but not only was it January, it was pouring rain. Luckily, the barn at the Red Lion is so beautiful, and was still all decked out for Christmas, so it was extra sparkly. The girls looked perfect for a winter wedding in icy blues and silvers, and the guys can never go wrong with a classic black tux! After warming up in there, we headed back out to make use of a few more covered spots before hopping on the trolley to the ceremony in Hingham. Once Nicole & Nick were husband and wife, they made their way back to the Red Lion to welcome their guests to a cozy evening reception. With Christmas trees, candles and greenery, everything looked perfect and still in the holiday spirit. Nicole and Nick threw a perfect, warm winter wedding, and we’re so happy we got to be there to share their day!
Shannon & Tommy were married a few weeks before Christmas at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset. The Red Lion is a perfect venue for a winter wedding, with it’s wooden bridges, stone paths and cozy fireplaces. The whole bridal party got ready onsite, so while the girls were toasting champagne, the guys were downstairs cracking open their groomsmen’s gifts as they tied ties and folded pocket squares. Once everyone was ready, Shannon and Tommy met for their First Look – it was so perfect, and brought Tommy to tears! Afterwards, the bridal party joined us, with the girls looking festive in red with white shawls and the guys complimenting them with blue suits and red ties. Shannon had a gorgeous green plaid shawl from Ireland, and the perfect bouquet in shades of red and white from Russo Fabulous. The Red Lion was all decked out for Christmas, with wreaths, trees and sparkly white lights, so there were lots of great spots for photos. It really is a venue that looks great year round! Shannon and Tommy were so easy going together, and had so much fun all day – they didn’t even mind staying outside with us in December! After photos, the ceremony was held in the barn, which was filled with Christmas lights and sparkling from every corner of the room. After the I Dos, the party began with cocktail hour, followed by the new Mr. & Mrs. sharing their first dance. Dinner and toasts were followed by everyone dancing the night away beneath the lights. It was a perfect, cozy holiday wedding, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.
Amanda & Artie were married on the first day of December at Old Sturbridge Village, where her parents were married 30 years before. It was a chilly, bright day, and we arrived to a very thin layer of snow on the ground. The grounds were all decorated for Christmas, looking like a quaint New England holiday village. Amanda looked so perfect for a winter wedding, all glowing in white with green details – and Artie was so excited to see her when they met for their First Look on the path leading to the chapel where they would be married. These two have so much fun together, and keep each other laughing constantly. The bridal party joined us for photos, all looking perfect for a holiday wedding as well, in greens, blues and gray shawls for the girls. The village is such a cool spot for photos, we could have stayed there all day, especially with the added fun of Christmas decorations! But, we had to finish up and get to the ceremony eventually, which was held in the old chapel on the grounds. Amanda and the girls arrived to the ceremony by horse drawn carriage, where she met Artie on the alter to exchange I Dos. The chapel is cozy and about as old New England as it gets – when Amanda & Artie made their way back down the aisle, they signaled their marriage by ringing the bell atop the church, by way of rope. After a few more photos, they jumped in the carriage to be taken to the reception, which was decked out in Christmas trees, candles and wreaths. They had taken a ballroom dancing class to prepare for their first dance, so they got to show off their moves to all their family and friends – we got a sneak peek at their engagement session 🙂 They had a perfect day – we love Christmas, and this was a really cool wedding with two of the nicest people, so it was a great way to kick off the start of a few winter weddings for us!
