I love their engagement story…..Scott is a college lacrosse coach, and after coming home from a long day of recruiting on a weekday, he decided to pop the question late that night. He had heard back about a job that day and knew that he would soon be relocating to Massachusetts to take a position with the UMass Lowell River Hawks, and he also knew that Sarah was anxious to hear about it and to possibly move back to New England (her home). So, he combined the two exciting announcements!
He put the ring in an envelope along with a bunch of brochures from UMass Lowell and the city of Lowell, then addressed it to her and brought it inside, telling her that she had missed some mail. She ripped open the envelope and saw the brochures and realized that they would be moving!
Unfortunately, the ring had fallen onto the floor when she ripped open the envelope, so Scott had to kindly inform her that something had fallen out of the envelope, and he wondered if she was interested in it.
Sarah was caught a bit off-guard, since she was half-ready for bed, with wet hair wrapped in a towel, but after a few excited phone calls to family, they threw on some nice clothes and went out to celebrate!
On the day of the wedding itself, I met up with Sarah and Scott right before their ceremony as everyone was gathered downstairs in the church. My second shooter, Teddy Yeager, was also there with me, and we jumped right in!
As the end of the ceremony drew closer & Scott & Sarah were putting the rings on you could tell they both relaxed and started to really enjoy themselves.
This little guest climbed out of her parent’s arms to see the action firsthand!
The ceremony was amazing, and it was obvious that everyone there truly loved this couple.
I loved Scott’s socks and the fact that Sarah ditched her shoes to be more comfortable.
Of course Marley had to be in a few photos!
We arrived to Tourterelle with plenty of time so Sarah bustled her dress and the party kicked off early!
Cornhole was a big hit and I have to say I was quite impressed with the skills and high point scoring I saw!

The reception kicked off and I thought it was so cool that, instead of a traditional first dance, Sarah and Scott organized an awesome lip-sync-off! The bride kicked things off, and then Scott took his turn, followed by the ladies of the bridal party, and finally, the guys rounded us out. It was such a fun and unique way to kick off the party and had everyone in stitches!
Never have I seen such awesome expressions for a cake cutting—this cracked me up while I was editing!!
Sarah & Scott, thank you again for allowing me to be part of this amazing time in your lives! Your wedding was so much fun, and I wish you the very best in your futures together!
