Mary inspecting the beautiful flowers
The guys being typical guys…relaxing as the girls flutter around them 🙂
There was a bit of a fashion emergency of a broken strap but thankfully Mary’s sister in law is very handy with a needle and thread so she had it fixed in no time!
I love this moment when a woman really becomes a bride!
We did some formal pictures beforehand of the ladies but this little one decided she’d had enough 🙂 It cracks me up that one of her shoes and her wreath has fallen off 🙂
Mary made a stunning bride.
The girls wore powder blues crocs with some decorations – it reminded me of the bride’s shoes in Father of the Bride….sneakers!
There’s quite a story here….we were all hanging out in the kitchen waiting for the limo to show up and Mary’s Mom peers around the corner and says “there’s a giant pink limo outside.” We all thought she was kidding but oh no….the other limo was running late and this was sent as an upgrade!
A detail from Mary’s beautiful veil that was created with Lace Mary’s Grandfather brought back from Venice many many years ago.
Details of Mary’s bouquet and a family handkerchief.
Before the ceremony and after we finished taking pictures Aaron, his groomsmen, and his family kicked back in the man cave to play poker and watch the Red Sox game. They joked that the ceremony would have to be delayed if the game ran over 🙂
More beautiful black and white details.
The ceremony begins!
Love their expressions 🙂
Mr. & Mrs 🙂
The little ones were a little tired from all the action so settled down in front of the bridal party 🙂
This field had beautiful light and I just loved the contrast of the dark suit and grass…Aaron and Mary were happy to go four wheeling for me 🙂
We drove down to the river to get a few more shots in front of the bridge.
Love this groom’s portrait of Aaron 🙂
Mary & Aaron had a quote inscribed on their rings – half on hers and half on his.
Let the party begin!
A very fun and spirited hora!
And great toasts 🙂
Love the duality here. Mary & her Dad on the left. Mary’s Brother and his daughter on the right. One day….. 🙂
Mary’s niece joined the parent dance as she doesn’t want to be separated from her Grandpa for long!
More fun dancing 🙂
As a surprise for their guests Mary & Aaron had an ice cream truck stop by the reception during the time the band took a break – everyone flocked outside and I think that every single person just about (including me!) enjoyed a cooling treat 🙂
People were rejuvenated by the sugar and boogied down further on the dance floor right until the final song!
HUGE congratulations to you both 🙂 It was a blast!
