My summer of weddings continues, this time on beautiful Cape Cod working with the wonderful Erica Ferrone. The day started with a gray morning drive from Boston…
…then we were on to the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth for getting ready pictures, formal portraits, and our couple’s first look. Luckily, the sky cleared up quite a bit and it turned into a gorgeous day!
We took a lot of photos of the lovely details there, too, like Emily’s dress and her amazing blue shoes lined up amongst her bridesmaids’ heels.
I loved the blue and green color scheme for a summery Cape wedding – it was perfect!
While Erica photographed the lovely Emily, I went to visit the handsome groom, Richard. Communicating by cell phone, Erica and I orchestrated the couple’s first look. It was so sweet to see!
More and more couples are choosing to do the majority of their formal portraits and couples portraits before their ceremony (I did, too!); it’s nice to have time with your future husband or wife before the big hoopla, and it makes for some very nice, unhurried pictures, too.
Later in the afternoon, we changed locations for the ceremony and reception, moving to the nearby Brookside Club in Bourne.
After a lovely late afternoon ceremony in a tent on the lawn, the party was on inside and on the deck!
Post-ceremony, Emily and Richard took a break from all the attention to have some appetizers by the golf course.
They rejoined the celebration shortly – first dances are always fun…
This wedding had some exuberant guests (of all ages!) who were very fun to photograph:
Congratulations, Emily and Richard! We had a blast at your wedding!
