Whoa. I’m glad this rain decided to come tonight, and not this past weekend. Actually the rain was quite cooperative for E. & C. It DID come Saturday evening, but we were inside the beautiful Indian Pond by then! Whew!
Actually when I arrived in Rockland for some preparation shots, the sun was out!
E. was GLOWING. You can just see the calm anticipation in her face.
LOVE this. She is just genuinely so happy!
I think I have this exact shot from earlier this year at a First Communion! I guess I like this angle of St. Mary’s. After all, it is on my running route so I get a good look at it frequently!
C. all ready to go!
I love this shot of E.’s brother, waiting for guests like the perfect usher!
And E.’s other brother, with Baby N., who was AMAZING the entire day!
So C., to me, seems like a very calm, extremely well-put-together person. But he looks nervous here! I think this must be pretty nerve wracking for men. I mean, are they thinking “I know she’s going to look amazing- can I keep from falling over?”… but for brides this very moment (well at least from my own experience and from the expressions I see on brides’ faces) is one of sheer joy and excitement.
Which is why I love this shot! And I LOVE dad in this shot. But especially the next one.
E.’s dad was so clearly giving away his baby. His bittersweet happiness was apparent the whole night.
This isn’t the last time you will see the maid of honor, E. making sure all is perfect for E. She was amazing!
I hadn’t been in St. Mary’s for a while, and I’d forgotten about the ceiling. When I walked in I thought- oh! I love this church! I snuck up in the balcony and got a few shots. This first one is my classic balcony shot…
While in this one I kept the focus on the ceiling.
E.’s dress was perfect on her. I love how she stood off-center of the altar.
I liked both vantage points of this shot- focus on the priest,
and focus on the couple.
And again I had to get that whole beautiful church in!
I always love this shot. Like they are going into their bright future… (Corny? Symbolic? You choose.)
A toast before the beach!
A little blurb before this mass of photos. I don’t go heavy on the “formals” in my galleries or blog posts. To me the wedding is more about the DAY itself and the COUPLE and their FAMILIES and FRIENDS. I truly aim to capture the story of the day. Of course the formals are fun as well and I go as crazy as the couple wants me to go! I was excited to do some wedding formals in Scituate, since I haven’t utilized the Scituate beaches for wedding portraits since moving here. SO- that said- here are lots of fun Scituate shots! First was Peggotty.
AND it should be noted that E. had all these fun props! I take no credit!
Very clever. We did a lot of shots with these…
And Baby N.! Amazing as ever!
Then to the lighthouse…
E. & C.’s bridal party did not utter one complaint! All these photos! They were troopers. And those of you who know this beach know there were some serious rocks to trek over…
Such a cute moment. E.’s brother and sis-in-law (expecting soon!).
So yes, you know I’m thinking- hmm- if I had one more MAYBE I could have this photos in my children’s future! E.’s mom mentioned to me that when E. (the youngest) was born, they told her he was a boy. Well, was she ever surprised. IMAGINE? I can’t even imagine!
First time with her feet in the Atlantic!
The light on overcast days is easier to manage, so we utilized both the view of the harbor and the lighthouse.
Ugh those rocks. Finally C. carried E.! What a guy!
This was adorable. There were a bunch of sightseers, and one older woman exclaimed “What a beautiful bride you are! I came all the way from Canada to see you!”
And then off to Indian Pond in Kingston… a few more shots on the bridge before the rain came. Thanks to my great golf cart driver for these shots!
We are missing a couple from this shot (diaper emergency), but I love this.
Indian Pond is one of my favorite spots on the South Shore. The entire venue is simply beautiful, and I particularly love the ballroom.
Matty B. provided not only the entertainment, but the uplighting as well.
Again, I love the expressions.
This man knows his wife! Already!
Look who’s still standing!
A friend of E.’s just started oh!photo out of Jamaica Plain. I got a few shots of the candids from my view. Check out their site for the camera’s view!
Love those expressions- again!
The dance floor was packed!
And C. got to dance with all of the ladies in his life.
The bouquet toss was one of those- Oh! I want it! No… I really don’t!
Cheers, C. & E., to a great day!
