Despite the cloudy skies, Kristen + Dan were able to celebrate an absolutely beautiful wedding day at the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. We loved all the bright pops of spring color they incorporated into their celebration, from the soft pink and white floral bouquets to the stunning dresses for the bridesmaids. We had Kristen + Dan do their first look outside of the Pilgrim Congregational Church, where they would later say their I dos. There were so many beautiful places around the church to get some formal photos with Kristen, Dan, and their families before the ceremony began. We especially loved the stone walls and old wooden cathedral doors — they were perfect backdrop for a few romantic shots of the bride and groom before we headed inside!
After the ceremony and a quick receiving line outside the church, everyone headed out to the Barn at Gibbet Hill to start the party! While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Barn’s screened-in deck, we took the happy newlyweds out into the rolling hills for some wedding portraits. Even with a gray stormy sky above, the green hills and rustic barn and silo made for some wonderful outdoor photos of Kristen + Dan. We made it inside before the rain started, and kicked off the evening wedding reception with an energetic entrance for the bridal party and a beautiful first dance for the bride and groom. The Barn’s beautiful rustic wooden interior was enhanced by clean white linens and bright pink floral arrangements on each table. The strings of white lights along the banisters and balconies as well as the rows of chandeliers on the ceiling gave the room a fun twinkle of light as the sun started to set, and filled the room with a warm candle-lit glow.
Following speeches, toasts, and the cake cutting, the dance floor was opened up for guests to party with the newlyweds all night! Kristen + Dan were so much fun to spend the day with, and we were thrilled to be able to share their beautiful Barn at Gibbet Hill wedding with them!!
