No fuss, no frills — just a gorgeous, low-key, picture-perfect Cape Cod summer wedding on the beach at the beautiful Chatham Bars Inn. The color palette was soft, the ocean was calm, the bride and groom were laughing, and everyone was happy to be there to celebrate with them.

Erin and Tom picked the Chatham Bars Inn for their wedding day for the unbeatable location — and what a location it is. Beautiful gardens, green lawns, sandy beaches, and sweeping ocean views make this a truly one-of-a-kind wedding venue. The couple had their first look on the lawn outside of the Inn, and we had no shortage of beautiful backdrops for formal photos after that. The Chatham Bars Inn lawn, front stairs and garden, and the balcony overlooking the waterfront provided some great photos of the bride and groom. We were soon joined by Erin and Tom’s wedding party and headed out to the beach. The energy of this group was just wonderful, everyone was there to have fun and celebrate and no one was afraid to get their feet a little sandy!

Erin and Tom said their “I do”s on the Chatham Bars Inn Boat House Lawn, overlooking the Cape Cod seaside. We took the bride and groom back out to the sand dunes for a few more photos after the ceremony before moving into the Beach House Grill for the reception. The couple chose a summer color palette of white and soft pink, with a touch of classic nautical stripes to match with the Cape Cod seashore. Friends and family were so happy to celebrate this wonderful day with Erin and Tom, surrounded by love and laughter — we were honored to be a part of it all.

Special thanks to Clarissa, Stephanie, and their entire team at the Chatham Bars Inn and to Erin and Tom for a beautiful and memorable wedding day!

It was Destination New England for Midwestern couple Lexi and Ethan, as they had one goal in mind for their wedding: to celebrate ocean-side on the East Coast.

The bride and groom flew all the way from North Dakota to the Wychmere Beach Club on Cape Cod, MA, for their intimate celebration. This couple decided that they wanted to be surrounded by their closest family and friends who also came from across the country, all of them excited to be surrounded by a beautiful ocean view most of them had not seen before. Before the ceremony, everyone was filled with an infectious energy as the bride and her family all got ready on location. Meanwhile, the groom got ready in Chatham, and later joined the bride at the Beach Club.

Following the outdoor ceremony, we were able to spend some time with Lexi and Ethan on the beach before they joined their guests at cocktail hour. Despite the chilly ocean air, the couple were thrilled to be in this serene destination.

Even though the wedding was in April, we all agreed that this beautiful ocean view made us realize the New England summer is just around the corner.

Thank you to this amazing couple who let us join you in your unforgettable destination celebration and to the Longwood Events team at the Wychmere Beach Club for being a joy to work with!

Lexi and Ethan’s Destination New England wedding at Wychmere Beach Club, Harwich Port, Cape Cod photographed by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

The Cape has always been the “happy place” for both Jessica + Jon. Jessica’s family summered on the Cape for her entire life, and Jon’s family has set their roots on the Cape for over 50 years! When it came time for the two to plan their wedding, choosing the Cape was an easy decision. We joined Jessica + Jon for a beautiful weekend at the Wychmere Beach Club, which included a traditional New England lobster bake, seaside photos, a classic church wedding ceremony, and an elegant black tie wedding reception with a contemporary urban twist.

The weekend started on Friday evening, with a classic lobster bake rehearsal dinner. A tent was installed on the Wychmere Beach Club’s private beach, overlooking the beautiful New England seaside. Customized games (which would make another appearance at the cocktail hour the following day!) were set up on the sand for guests to play and rustic wooden lanterns were set up along the boardwalk to light the way. Everyone enjoyed dinner, while Jessica + Jon heard special toasts from their closest family and friends. As soon as the sun set, the tent was lit up with sparkling strings of lights and a bonfire was roaring out on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

The next morning began the wedding day — Jessica and her bridesmaids got ready in the Wychmere Beach House’s bridal suite, while Jon and his groomsmen hung out in the Wychmere Cottage (sometimes called the “Groom Cottage” for weddings)! The bride’s bouquet was a gorgeous mix of greens, white roses, and deep red flowers — perfect for an early Autumn wedding. She chose a strapless, mermaid-cut Anna Maier gown, matched with sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and a glittering silver hair piece. We left her bridal party inside to finish getting ready while we took Jessica out onto the beach for her first look with Jon!

The bride and groom had their first look on the boardwalk overlooking the Cape Cod beach. We braved the blustery wind to get some great shots of the happy couple along the beautiful beach before heading back inside. We took a few more romantic photos of Jessica + Jon inside the Wychmere before we were joined by the bridal party and family for formal photos. Following formals, the wedding party hopped a ride in a Cape Cod Trolley to the wedding ceremony while Jessica rode with her dad in a classic white Rolls Royce.

After the traditional wedding ceremony at the nearby Pilgrim Congregational, guests headed back to the Wychmere to await the big arrival of the happy newlyweds. Jessica + Jon made their grand entrance to cocktails on a sailboat, while everyone cheered them on from the dock! Some guests stayed outside to enjoy the seaside view and lawn games, while others moved inside for the hors d’oeuvres and raw bar in the Wychmere’s Hydrangea Room.

The elegant evening reception took place in the Harbor Room, named for the panoramic windows giving a perfect view of the Cape Cod harbor right outside. The tables were topped with silver linens, with accented pops of dark navy blue from the table name cards and ribbon-wrapped candy boxes on each place setting. The wooden beamed ceiling and silver chandeliers made the room elegant and contemporary, and the towering white floral centerpieces from Marc Hall Design were definite show-stoppers. Jessica + Jon’s custom “J&J” monogram was even projected onto the dance floor using lights.

We absolutely loved being a part of this traditional black tie Cape Cod wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club, especially knowing how special the Cape was for Jessica, Jon, and their families! Thank you to the fantastic group of vendors we got to work with, the entire team at the Wychmere, and Jessica + Jon for letting us be a part of your fabulous Cape Cod wedding day.

There are so many fantastic New England wedding venues perfect for a seaside wedding — whether you’re right outside of Boston on the North Shore,  south in Rhode Island or on Cape Cod! Christina and Tony chose the beautiful Chatham Bars Inn for their summer wedding on the Cape, an elegant beach wedding with lots of blue, white and natural elements.

Christina and her bridesmaids began the day getting ready in a suite above the Beach House Grill, with a great view of the ocean right outside.  Christina’s gown was perfect for a summer beach wedding — a strapless mermaid cut dress with an embellished silver belt. The bridal party wore strapless seafoam green dresses, and Christina gifted necklaces and matching clutch purses to all the ladies before the wedding. All of the women carried white and green summer flowers, tied with a matching seafoam ribbon for the bridesmaids and a creme-colored ribbon for the bride.

The outdoor ceremony took place on the Chatham Bars Inn lawn, overlooking the ocean. Christina and her father made a grand entrance down the staircase towards the beautifully decorated white and green archway for the ceremony. Following the “I do”s, a traditional Scottish bagpiper lead the happy newlyweds across the Chatham Bars Inn boardwalk down to the beach for some formal pictures with the couple, their wedding party and families.

We got some great photographs of the bride and groom with their bridal party right on the water’s edge, with classic Cape Cod boats floating just behind in the background. The groom and groomsmen were dressed in tan suits, with white shirts and a bright blue tie for just a touch of nautical colors.

Before heading to the reception, we had some time to spend alone with Christina and Tony to take some great beach wedding pictures on the footbridge over the water, in the grassy beach dunes, and along the classic New England boardwalk before heading inside to the reception.

The Chatham Bars Inn Beach House was transformed into a beautiful wedding reception space with natural creme-colored linens, clear silver-lined charger plates and dark natural wood ballroom chairs. White and green flowers on all the tabletops added a pop of color to the Beach House, and the clear tent over the outdoor patio made a perfect dance floor for the night’s party. Guests were signing classic Cape Cod lobster buoys in lieu of a guest book, and a traditional lobster trap was set out for gifts and cards.

Following the last dance, the band announced the surprise sparkler exit where guests walked from the Beach House Grill to the after party at The Monomoy. Guests enjoyed night snacks including mini shakes and burgers and hit the dance floor with music from a DJ.

We loved the elegant twist this couple put on a classic beach wedding theme. It had all the right touches of summer, sand, and the seaside for a great Cape Cod wedding. Congratulations Christina and Tony! Also, a big thank you to Allison Wildes Liset who planned this beautiful wedding and the team at the Chatham Bars Inn!
