With its half-mile sweeping lawn and architecturally impressive Great House, it’s easy to see why Maria + Alex chose to have their wedding at the Crane Estate, in Ipswich, MA. We love this gorgeous venue and were more than happy to drive out to Castle Hill once again to capture this wonderful celebration.
We had spent the morning with Maria + Alex as they prepared for the day. The couple chose not to see each other before the ceremony, making for a sweet moment when they finally did. In a beautiful, sweeping lace gown by Hayley Paige, Maria was stunning, and the ceremony that followed was moving and sweet.The outdoor ceremony was set up on the Crane Estate’s half-mile manicured lawn, with white garden chairs and beautiful white and green floral arrangement over looking the sea.
Following the “I do”s and big kiss, the wedding party and family members headed to the “casino” for formal photographs. These little Italian-style villas were a wonderful setting for the portraits. Following cocktail hour, the wedding guests were moved into the tent, beautifully designed by The Catered Affair with gorgeous florals from Consider the Lilies!
We love that Maria changed into a more party-friendly dress to kick off the dancing following dinner. We were so happy to be able to capture this important day for Maria + Alex, congratulations to the happy couple!
