Some people love with their hearts so wide open that you can almost feel the excess spilling out into the world. That’s how it is with super sweeties, Amanda & Kevin. We met these two last fall, when we photographed their Sandwich love session aka engagement session. They picked the spot because it’s where they got engaged and right from the start we could see their love is special.
They are just so good together and individually they are such warm, kind, smart, fun, funny, caring people. All of that was reflected in their wedding and reception, so much so that we ended up with a caboodle of photos. I had a reeeaaaalllllly hard time culling and picking some for the blog. And, even as I look at what I ended up with, I still feel like I could have added another 80 before I really did their day justice.
But, it’s getting late and I know Amanda & Kevin are excited to see something…so without further ado, here’s a little look at just a smidge of the beautiful love and joyful celebration that was Amanda & Kevin’s incredible Wequassett wedding, starting with Amanda’s gorgeous Maggie Sotero wedding dress and finishing make up touches by the talented and lovely ladies of Artworx.
Helloooo….. Jimmy Choo just got a whole lot sexier.
More pretty details…
Getting dressed with a little help of her super sweet sissie, Veronica. Love these two wonderful ladies.
Meanwhile, not far away, Kevin starts his getting ready process.
With some of his besties.
The World Cup was in its final stages and the fellas couldn’t help put watch….
Ready to go….
More and more couples are opting for a first look, and we LOVE it! There’s such anticipation in this moment…where all the planing and preparing comes together and for a few long seconds, you hold your breath! Plus, it means more time to enjoy cocktail hour and we get more time to document all those super fun candid moments.
With a turn and a quick smile….the kisses just kept coming.
You think he’s happy???
Such love between these two….so beautiful.
By your side is where I always want to be.
And in your arms, life can’t get any sweeter.
After a few minutes to take in the moment alone, Amanda & Kevin met up with family and their bridal party for some photos. Love these sweet moment as Amanda hugs Kevin’s super sweet momma, Elizabeth.
And Amanda enjoys another sweet embrace with her beautiful momma, Dana. And, Flower girl, Novella, and Ring Bearer, Rowan, did a fabulous job….such sweeties.
Amanda and her bestie gal pals…all smiles with these lovely ladies.
Why helloooooo beautiful!
Kevin’s nieces and nephews, Samantha, Max, Kai & Aria, did a fabulous job handing out programs
And guests were all smiles as they arrived for the ceremony on the Grand Lawn.
This next photo sums up for me this wedding…just so much fun, joy and oodles of love.
Meanwhile, Amanda and her bridesmaids hide away as they wait for the ceremony to start.
Friends excited for the ceremony to start.
Kevin looks pretty excited for it to start too….love this guy!
Here comes the bride, on the arm of her proud papa, Bob.
I looooove this next moment….Bob looks chuffed as pie and Amanda….looking into the eyes of her soon-to-be husband…well, her face says it all for me.
And Kevin can’t take his eyes off of her. For those who think having a first look will somehow make this moment less special….look again.
A hug of love…
And a smile that goes on for miles.
It was hard for friends and family not to feel all the love & joy.
These two were radiating!
Sweet Delia couldn’t stop the happy tears as Amanda & Kevin read their thoughtful and super heartfelt vows to one another.
Kevin’s brother, Erik, performed the ceremony, which ended with several sweet, meaningful kisses…it’s like the didn’t want to stop. Just love it!
So much happiness.
Wequassett likes to give their couples a few minutes alone after the ceremony to just take in the moment. With a plate full of hors d’oeuvres and full glasses of champagne, these two made the most of their moment.
We like to take our couples for a couple of minutes alone time too…just to capture those happy highs after the ceremony.
So much happy…
Then, down to the dock to take advantage of the setting sun.
You light up my life…
Checking out their new hardware and looking freaking gorgeous doing it!
…including stunning summer flowers by Beach Plum Floral.
Welcome the new Mr. & Mrs.
Their first dance was off the hook.
The look of love.
Toasting the happy couple.
Kevin’s best man, Michael, did such a great job with his toast.
He had these two in stitches.
Time for a dance with Dad.
And a little love for Mom.
Then it was time to get down on it….and this lot really did!
Serenading their bud….with so much love.
We did it baby….we did it!!
