Amanda & Kevin’s Wequassett Wedding ~ Harwich Photographers

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…

Intoxicating….

Checking out their new hardware and looking freaking gorgeous doing it!

Beautiful details…

…including stunning summer flowers by Beach Plum Floral.

Welcome the new Mr. & Mrs.

These two….

Their first dance was off the hook.

Crushing it.

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.

Taaaaa daaaaaa….

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.

Oh yeah!!

We did it baby….we did it!!

Amanda & Kevin…thank you both sooooooo much for choosing us to document your incredible wedding day. Right from the beginning, you two welcomed us with open arms and made us feel included in the celebration. You two exemplify everything we love about photographing weddings. You are beautiful souls who love without limits and it’s beautiful to behold. We hope you can see and feel all the love that surrounded you two on your incredible wedding day. They say we reap what we sow…and it’s clear that you two put a lot of love and care into your garden. May the flowers continue to blossom with boundless beauty. Can’t wait to share the rest of the photos with you!!! Until then, big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxoxo

PS…a special shout out and big thank you to Annie & Brian for sending these two love birds our way!! We missed you at the wedding Annie. Big love xo

Jac & Mitty’s Falmouth Wedding ~ Cape Cod Wedding Photographers

Jacqueline & Mitty are like peanut butter & chocolate…alone they’re pretty awesome, but together…..well, it’s a winning combination that’s hard to beat! We first met these two lovebirds earlier this summer, when we got together for their bello love session.

It’s not often that we first meet our couples just minutes before photographing them and still hit it off right away, but that’s exactly how it was with these two. They’re just super cool people…fun, warm, funny, and absolutely beautiful, both inside & out.

I knew even before meeting them that we were going to like these two. Before our love sessions, we give our couples a little survey with questions that let us get to know them a bit better. Andy & I provide our own answers too, to help couples feel a little less intimidated to share personal info with us. Jac & Mitty sent back their survey…all 4 pages of it…and it was like Christmas morning. Not only did we get a real inside look into who they are, and what they love about each other, but with every single, thoughtful word they were welcoming us in to their world with open arms & open hearts. And, that is gold to us.

More often than not, our couples send back surveys with one line answers…and we get it…we’re all busy and who has time for something so seemingly trivial. But, Jac & Mitty’s answers were so much fun to read. Jac’s replies were particularly verbose….which I suppose I could relate to, as anyone who’s ever got an email from me can attest…I’m never at a shortage of things to say. But, they weren’t just chatty responses, they were seriously heart-felt. And, in their words it was easy to see how much these two love & care for each other.

Their wedding a few weeks ago, in the backyard of Jac’s grandfather’s ocean front Falmouth home, was the perfect testament to just how BIG these two love …and not just each other, but their families & friends and life in general. It was such an honor to bear witness to that kind of love & celebration. It was the kind of wedding you never want to end (Well, the kind of wedding you’d never want to end if you could put down your 20 pound cameras and join everyone breaking it down on the dance floor, which we were seriously tempted to do.)

I could keep going on about how much we adore these two, but I know most folks come here to see photos…so, I’ll just let the photos do the talking. We hope you enjoy this little sneak peek into the love & celebration that was Jac & Mitty’s wedding day!

Beautiful Jac…with eyes as blue as the ocean…love this girl and her Sex in the city hairstyle by the talented team from Artworx Hair Design. Make up by Dani Wagener.

Ga ga gorgeous!!! Jac is a vision in her Ramona Keveza wedding gown. Just beautiful! And, to think, all she said to us when we first met was how awkward she is in front of the camera and how she can never take a good photo….yeah, whatever!

Mitty and the guys were getting ready at the Sea Crest Resort just down the road. The guys all wore these handsome bluish/grey suits by Isaia, and super cool plaid ties .

Our handsome groom, getting ready for his soon-to-be Mrs.

Last minute gloss touch ups…and away we go….

Happy looks like this…

Jac & Mitty had their first look on Jac’s grandfather’s front lawn. The property and tent just looked so beautiful thanks to the talented team at Sperry Tents, the super sweet and uber stylish Jen Chagnon at The Pink Polka Dot, and the lovely Courtney Dunbury of Courtney’s Floral Creations. We are huuuge fans of Courtney’s and this wedding was some of her best work ever. Just so beautiful and so totally Jac’s style. Awesome job Court!!

Look at that beautiful face light up at the site of her sweet mister….swooon!

Joy is this….

These two were absolutely glowing….yaaay for love!

Jac’s grandpa’s dog is a sweet old fella, who was doing his part on the wedding day to help keep Jac calm and centered….and look pretty adorable doing it.

Jac & her girls….including her super sweet sister Christina (on Jac’s right)

Jac & Mitty could not have asked for a more perfect day to say, “I do!”

Side by side, now and forever!

Sweet kisses….

Mitty & his besties, including his brothers, Chris & Chase (far right) before the ceremony starts at St. Barnabas in Falmouth.

Love this unscripted moment as Jac arrived via the side door, with her handsome dad, Dennis, and her soon-to-be nephews/ring bearers, Harrison & Alex.

If every day could feel like this, life would be soooo good!

Love the way Mitty gently touched Jac’s arm as she made her way to him….sometimes so much can be said in a simple touch.

Or in a look…..

We did it!!! Woooooo hooooo! Look at their faces….can you stand it?? So much happiness!!

Jac gets a love-filled hug from a friend just outside the church.

I LOOOOVE this photo of Jac, it’s almost as if she can’t believe how happy she is in this moment. Meanwhile, her super sweet parents, Dennis & Elissa, make their way out of the church.

See what I mean about Courtney’s flowers???? Just stunning! And, that floating ball of flowers in the middle of the tent must have been about 4 feet wide! Love the linens too!

A little pink sparkle and a ruffled cake by the talented staff at The Casual Gourmet. As always, Olive and her staff made sure everything ran with machine like precision, while guests enjoyed the delicious food!

The new Mr. & Mrs…..

A fun perspective on their first dance.

Jac played lacrosse in college and here some of her former teammates shower their gal pal with love & kisses.

Mitty & Jac steal a kiss during the toasts.

Love Mitty’s expression as he listens to Christina talk about her new big brother. Just lovely!

This little star lit walkway….it provided the perfect backdrop for a little late night break from the party for our happy couple.

Sealed with a kiss…..

Honestly, there were just too many great moments to fit in this post…I could have kept sharing, but we’re already a bit late getting this online, so we had to stop somewhere. We hope you, Jac & Mitty, enjoy this little peek. More to come very soon…we promise! We cannot wait to share the entire collection with you…so many wonderful love-filled moments jammed into one day! Until then, thank you both sooooo very much for including us in your amazing wedding! We love you guys and loved being a part of this special time in your lives. You, your family & friends all made us feel so welcomed, and you two shared yourselves so selflessly. We appreciate it so much and cannot wait to see where this journey of love takes you both next!! With big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxoxo
