Mary and Aaron had a totally perfect day to get married and celebrate with their friends and family. The day was planned with plenty of extra time built in so we were ahead of schedule the whole time – so nice when I’m used to rushing!
Mary’s nieces were the flower girls and they were SO excited to put on their dresses they just couldn’t wait!

Mary inspecting the beautiful flowers

The guys being typical guys…relaxing as the girls flutter around them πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ It cracks me up that one of her shoes and her wreath has fallen off πŸ™‚

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!

It cracked us all up and Mary rightfully said that when she was a little girl she loved playing with Barbies so this was a very Barbie-esque and fitting way to ride to her wedding πŸ™‚
A lesser bride would have had a meltdown but Mary just laughed and took it in stride!

A detail from Mary’s beautiful veil that was created with Lace Mary’s Grandfather brought back from Venice many many years ago.

Mary’s Sister-in-Law is a talented scrapbooker and made a beautiful album for Mary and Aaron that ended with this page and photos from our engagement session/save the date!

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 πŸ™‚

I snuck in as they were setting up for the reception to photograph the centerpieces and table names which were all signifiant to Mary & Aaron

More beautiful black and white details.

The ceremony begins!

Love their expressions πŸ™‚

Mr. & Mrs πŸ™‚

The little ones were a little tired from all the action so settled down in front of the bridal party πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

We drove down to the river to get a few more shots in front of the bridge.

Love this groom’s portrait of Aaron πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Love the duality here. Mary & her Dad on the left. Mary’s Brother and his daughter on the right. One day….. πŸ™‚

Mary’s niece joined the parent dance as she doesn’t want to be separated from her Grandpa for long!

More fun dancing πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

People were rejuvenated by the sugar and boogied down further on the dance floor right until the final song!

HUGE congratulations to you both πŸ™‚ It was a blast!
