Summer wedding season is really starting to kick off, and what a beautiful weekend it was for Nicole and Ethan! After pre-wedding preparations at Nicole’s family home, the evening kicked off with a ceremony at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church. Once the couple said “I do”, it was off to the Ipswich Country Club to celebrate!

The clubhouse at the Ipswich Country Club provided the perfect setting for the evening cocktail reception and festivities. Windows surround the reception hall, ensuring a spectacular view of the estate–especially around sunset! The bride and groom chose decor that was both elegant and sophisticated, but still reflected their fun personalities. Ipswich’s own Dana Markos provided the breathtaking flowers for the event, adding elegance and a splash of color to the already perfect backdrop of the Country Club.

Congratulations to Nicole and Ethan and thank you for being so wonderful to work with!

Earlier this month, we photographed the Boston Harbor Hotel wedding of Emilia and Patrick. The morning began in one of the hotel’s suites where Emilia and her bridesmaids got ready while Patrick and his groomsmen geared up for the day at the nearby Longwharf Marriott. The wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful Cathedral of the Holy Cross in near by South Boston.

The wedding reception took place in the hotel’s Atlantic Room. Emilia described the look and feel of the day to us as an old world European feel incorporating fall colors of copper and taupe with more of a wilder feel to the flowers and centerpieces with lots of greens.

Emilia and Patrick wanted to take advantage of the beautiful October day and we were thrilled! After some photos outside the Cathedral, we headed to Columbus Park and Longwharf. From there it was off to the Boston Harbor Hotel for a few more photos of the newlyweds before cocktail hour began.

Not only was Emilia’s mom her Matron of Honor, she also created both the beautiful invitation below as well as the wedding favors. Trish Martini is the proud owner of Soirée, Andover that specializes in Unique Invitations, Fine Stationery and Exquisite Favors and Accents.

The beautiful ceramic rose that was left on Emilia’s charger was gifted as a surprise to the bride by her parents who had received it on their wedding day by Emilia’s grandmother.

A big congratulations and thank you to both the newlyweds and their wonderful families! It was truly an honor to have the opportunity to capture such an emotional and special day for this great group.
