Jen and Dan could not have picked a nicer day or a more appropriate venue to celebrate their love and make it official πŸ™‚ Surrounded by an intimate group of friends and family the day unfolded perfectly.

Jen hung out at the Mystic Hilton with her sisters and friend gathered around. Friends did hair and makeup so it was very personal!

Yeah….one of her relatives did this as a joke πŸ™‚

Jen’s uncle came to check on the ladies – he was so sweet all day! We also got our first glimpse at the rocking men’s attire πŸ™‚

Jen’s veil has been in her family for quite some time – I love the history!

Love this one of Jen.

Dan’s Mom and Dan greeted me when I arrived at the ceremony πŸ™‚

I heart Bagpipers πŸ™‚

Jen and her Uncle catch their first look at the assembled guests

Love this one -the light was just beautiful and warm!

Jen & Dan’s officiant was quite a stitch and she had everyone laughing and smiling throughout the ceremony πŸ™‚

The setting is so picturesque – right on the water!

Dan’s shoes were pretty spectacular as well!

This happens at SO many weddings – Bride puts ring on wrong finger and doesn’t understand why it doesn’t fit πŸ™‚

That’s better!

Right after the ceremony I snuck up to the deck and had everyone turn around for a full wedding photo – it worked out well!

After a few family photos it was out to the dock for Jen & Dan’s photos

I loved her bouquet -such a burst of color!

Couldn’t resist another of the fabulous shoes and pants πŸ™‚

I spent a few minutes inside photographing the details.

All of these knots were hand tied – colored ribbons denoted allergies or special requests….very clever!

The wedding had a subtle nautical theme – these menus mirrored their invitations

A colorful and simple cake!

Table names were decorated with beautiful local artwork

Favors of gummy fish in honor of Jen’s Dad.

Yumiko does such amazing work!

The boutonnieres were set off with Rosemary

Loved the crisp white linens and pops of color from the flowers and ribbons

The Yachting Club’s ballroom is so beautiful and very New England πŸ™‚

A few cocktail hour memories πŸ™‚

There were some pretty awesome fashions at this wedding so we had to do a “pants picture” to remember it by πŸ™‚

Dan’s college friends all wore hats….we were at a yachting center after all πŸ™‚

Close ups of some fun pants and ties πŸ™‚

1st dance πŸ™‚

VERY funny toasts!

And some fun with the Cartells on the dance floor

This lady (part of Jen’s family) was the only one who successfully got Dan out on the dance floor πŸ™‚

Jen & Dan – I had such a fun time celebrating with you! Here’s to a very happy life!
