Summer at the beach

With kids back to school it’s finally sinking in that summer is over! I’m already missing my days at the beach, so what better way to cope than share a few from summer mini sessions? The weather ranged from cloudy and windy to bright sunshine, but with a constant stream of beautiful faces and gorgeous ocean I couldn’t complain one bit <3

 

Farewell summer!

 

Married: Jon + Jenn

Jon and Jenn had a stunning sunset wedding at the New England Aquarium in Boston! Even major knee surgery and crutches couldn’t stop these two from having a good time =) I love Jenn’s pink converse and blush princess dress – it was the perfect combination. Here are few favorites from a fabulous night!

Married: Jen + Denille

Jen + Denille had a picture perfect evening to celebrate with their closest family and friends! From the perfectly styled decor to the cotton candy sunset, the setting and the brides were simply stunning. SO happy for these two and honored to share some favorites from their lovely wedding!

Married: Chris + Kristi

Last weekend I got to spend time with some special people coming together as one big family. I first “met” Kristi over social media, when I heard that she and Chris were attempting to pull together their wedding in just a couple of weeks so that Kristi’s father, whose health was failing, would be able to walk her down the aisle. It was touching to watch people come together to make this day happen, and though it was not without road bumps, Kristi’s dad walked her down the aisle and danced with her at their reception. For two families that have gone through many challenges what an amazing celebration bringing them all together! Here is a peek at their emotional wedding day <3

This little peanut was just the cutest thing!
Chris and Kristi have some seriously gorgeous children!
Chris’s parents were so sweet
The kids did a great job!
All eyes on the bride!
Not many dry eyes watching this processional <3

The weather was threatening but we headed to the lighthouse where Chris proposed for some dramatic photos

Congratulations to this wonderful family!

Married: Dan + Alice

Dan and Alice are just the nicest people you could ever want to meet! They celebrated their wedding on a stormy but beautiful day at Hyland Orchard. They made friends, family, and fun the main focus of their day and the relaxed atmosphere made every moment enjoyable! Here are some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding <3

Dan and Alice had a first look where they exchanged cards – it was so sweet!
I love watching Guests’ reactions, especially family members. Clearly so much love for these two from their parents
I just love the way the wind played with Alice’s veil <3
I know people always want sunshine and blue skies but I am a huge fan of moody clouds and stormy skies =)
These rings are just amazing and so unique
Parent dances always make me tear up!
Probably the happiest cake cutting ever!
Hyland does an amazing job with the outdoor entertainment. Any time s’mores are involved I’m there!

 

It was a perfect summer day for this awesome couple! Congratulations Dan and Alice!!
