Like so many couples today, Sarah & Keith chose to see each other before their ceremony so they could take family and bridal party photos, then attend their cocktail hour and enjoy more of their party. It’s a trend Andy & I are really appreciate.
Sarah had explained to us before her Wychmere Beach Club wedding how important it was for us to capture the moment she and Keith saw each other for the first time. “I’ve sort of been dreaming about this all of my life,” she told us. So, when the moment came, we watched and waited and these two smitten people didn’t disappoint. Their obvious love and affection was written al over their gorgeous faces…and it stayed there all day long!!
We’d become really excited about their wedding after being at their rehearsal dinner the night before at Chatham Bars Inn. There were lots of love-filled speeches, heartfelt hugs and so much affection it was infectious and hard not to want to be a part of it all! So, getting to be there for more of the same on their wedding was such a pleasure.
Here are just a few of some of our favorite moments from their incredible wedding day…
Beautiful Sarah getting last minute makeup touches by the lovely Emanuela Castellano, who traveled from NYC to give Sarah and her gal pals their glamorous wedding day looks. Just love the matching floral PJs Sarah got all her girls to wear as they got ready.
Some of Sarah’s bridesmaids, Kate, Elizabeth, Kerri & Nicole, chilling out on the sun deck, while Sarah and the rest of the girls finish up with hair & make up.
