A. & N. had been planning for this day for a long time. I “met” A. about a year and a half ago over the phone, sitting in my office in Scituate. Fast forward one year and A. & N. are now also residents of Scituate. Although we haven’t seen much of each other around town, as I’ve been in Pocasset for about a month now and A. & N. have been in Orleans every chance they get, preparing for the big day. Their home in Orleans is perfect Cape Cod… so many of the original details of their home are intact. I grabbed a few in their preparation shots…
Ready to go!
Their yard is such a perfect spot. I love the second shot especially, again so simplistically Cape. The roses, the little cedar and the marsh.
First look time! Here she goes…
I love the looks on their faces. First looks are becoming more and more popular I’m finding. It is certainly a more intimate way to share the moment.
We headed to St. Joan of Arc for the ceremony.
Waiting in the wings…
I love the light in this church…
And I was in love with this banner too.
Now for my favorite part. And now my blog followers, you’ll remember A. & N.’s engagement session if you haven’t already! We left the church in the yellow jeep… headed for Nauset. Providence videographer, David Bettencourt, who I was so thrilled to meet and work with, inspired me as he captured our ride to the beach. So I’ve included a little play-by-play here. Hope you can experience some of the fun!
Off to Nauset.
On our way… the jeep was decked out with cans, writing, etc… as you can see from the mirror below.
Had to include our stop with beach patrol. I love his face. And of course he warned us of the sharks…
Perfect day for photos on Nauset, it could honestly be a tropical destination in some of these.
Yes, I am obsessed with the jeep.
LOVE these dunes.
And finally we’re off to the reception!
I always love how couples incorporate intimate details. The driftwood centerpieces were perfect.
A. loves this move (and apparently so do I!)!
Great toasts all around.
I always love working with Casual Gourmet. Not only is their food amazing, but they know how to run the show.
AND make a cake!
As You Like It was fantastic. Best Springsteen covers I have heard in a while!
We found a perfect spot to get a shot from across the marsh…
Cheers, A. & N.! PERFECT day. Hope to see you around town!
