Lindsey & Bobby’s Wequassett Wedding, Cape Cod photographers

Thankfully the rain for Lindsey & Bobby’s rehearsal dinner cleared, and their wedding day was a quintessential June day here on beautiful Cape Cod. The sun was out, the air warm & dry. It was perfection, made even more so by all of the love & joyful celebration surrounding these two New York cuties.

We first met Lindsey & Bobby in the spring of last year and then got to hang out with them some more at their Mashpee love session this past November, when they were home visiting family over Thanksgiving. It was brrrrr cold, but we had such fun and the love they displayed had us chomping at the bit for their wedding day. Click HERE for a sneak peek at their Willowbend love session.

Their Wequassett wedding did not disappoint. And, here’s a look at some of our favorite moments from their love-filled day:

Lindsey’s gorgeous gown & shoes…

Cufflnks & shirt buttons for Bobby & his groomsmen…

Lindsey & Bobby’s Blingtastic rings and invite by William Arthur.

Bobby & his groomsmen tie their dicky bows. Love the suspenders, or braces as they say in England.

Kirby helps Lindsey put on her ring after I snapped a few photos of it.

Tying bow ties is not easy, but the guys sure do look good trying…

Lindsey & Bobby opted to see each other before their ceremony, so we could do a lot of the family photos and get them out of the way so they could enjoy their cocktail hour. Just love the anticipation on Bobby’s face as Lindsey makes her way to him for their first look.

And the happy embrace that followed…

There were some happy tears, and just a few minutes to take in the moment. Then off to meet the family for photos…

Hey, we’re getting married….

Lindsey’s gorgeous flowers by Karen at Lilac Florals. And, a stolen kiss…

Are they cute or what?

Friend arrive for photos…

Sometimes I think the wedding day means as much to the proud mommas as it does to the happy couple. Love these moments with Bobby & Lindsey’s lovely mommas, Marsi & Cindi.

Gabby the flower girl extraordinaire was just precious…like a sweet little angel and this moment with her new auntie melts my heart.

Bobby & his boys…

Lindsey & her lovely ladies…

The gang is all here…hello blue sky!

Some alone time before the ceremony begins… Can we talk about the joy on their faces? Just love it!

Love is….having moments like this to share with future generations. Ahhhh

Hello sexy people…

Stunning couple…

Guests take their seats for the ceremony…

Bobby & his beautiful mom, Marsi, & super sweet dad, John, prepare to walk down the aisle, followed closely by Lindsey’s mom, Cindy, escorted by her son, Bill, as Lindsey & her dad, Stephen, watch the action from up above, in the Wequassett’s private dining room.

Guests greet one another…

Bobby catches a glimpse of Lindsey as she & her dad get ready to make their way down the aisle.

Do smiles get any bigger than this? I think not!

Meanwhile, Bobby gets overcome by emotion. I just love when this happens….especially after they already had their first look. Just too sweet! Love the expressions on his friends’ faces too.

Awww…

Lindsey & Bobby listen to a reading…

There he goes again….honestly, I can’t take it!

Yaaaay for love, oh glorious love!

We did it! Yaaay!

A big heart-felt and most welcoming hug for her new daughter-in-law.

More momma hugs…

Love the Tuscan table design by Jen at The Pink Polka Dot, and the gorgeous orchids. White & burnt umber….such a lovely combo.

A little slice of heaven, with a wonderful in white cake by Konditor Meister and first dance with dad.

Friends boogie on down with music by Flipside.

John & Marsi bust a move with friends.

Once again, we’d like to thank Kalson  & Jen for making sure everything ran smoothly, making our jobs not only easy, but most enjoyable. And, big thanks to Lindsey & Bobby, your families and friends for welcoming us with open arms and sharing with us this special time in your lives. We LOVED being a part of your wedding and hope these photos serve as happy reminders for many years to come! Big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo

Lindsey & Bobby’s Wequassett Rehearsal Dinner ~ Cape Cod photographers

All of our wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session and we offer these as a way to spend more time with our couples so that we all get to know each other better and build a foundation of trust before their big day of “I dos.” Trust and relationship building are key to making our couples feel more comfortable with us, so that they let their down their guard and let us in to capture the unfiltered emotions that make each wedding such a beautiful and unique celebration.

In the same way our engagement sessions give us more time with our couples, being invited to document rehearsal dinners lets us also get to know their families & closest friends better. And, that is just how we like it.

Photography really is a give and take between the subject and picture-taker. Not everyone loves being photographed. So, the hope and goal for us is that the more time we spend together, and the more we can put our couples in front of our cameras…if even in a more candid, relaxed way such as the rehearsal dinner, the more comfortable they become with us, and the more confidence they have in our ability to document them in a natural, fun, emotional, authentic way.

We were fortunate enough to have been invited to document Lindsey & Bobby’s rainy, but super fun rehearsal dinner earlier a couple of weeks ago at the always beautiful (even in the rain) Wequassett Inn. Jen from the Pink Polka Dot worked side by side with Marsi, Bobby’s super sweet mom, to put together a chic oceanside clambake. Everyone had a blast, including us!

Love the nautical blue & white theme and the gorgeous green & white flowers by Lilac Florals and super cute lobster lollipops.

Here comes our happy couple, Bobby & Lindsey, dodging raindrops and followed closely behind by their parents.

Some family friends from France…who were so warm & welcoming to us, even inviting us to come stay with them in Paris…um, yes please! Love the cute cocktails in mason jars, with blue & white paper straws.

The seating chart table continued with the beachy theme….sand & driftwood.

Friends having fun & sharing stories.

Lindsey greets a guest while a Wequassett server passes out featured cocktails. I don’t know what they were, but they looked great.

Lindsey & Bobby breaking bread with family…or in this case breaking lobster tails. Love the bibs and the steaming ramekins filled with melted butter.

Live music & wine always makes a delicious dinner even nicer.

Bobby visits with friends and members of his bridal party.

Bobby’s super sweet dad John thanks family & friends for coming with a lovely heart-felt toast/speech, while Bobby’s warm & wonderful mom, Marsi, greets friends. Ironically, the couple she’s talking to was actually at our previous Wequassett wedding (the week before) with the equally sweet Michaela & Wally. You may recognize Colin & his wife Stephanie. Colin is Michaela’s brother and was one of Wally’s groomsmen and his wife Stephanie, Michaela’s sister-in-law, was one of her bridemaids.

A guest reacts to the conversation she’s having….gotta love joy that can be read so fully on one’s face.

Thank you Jen from Pink Polka Dot & Kalson at Wequassett for making our jobs not only easy, but also thoroughly enjoyable. Special thanks to Marsi for inviting us to document the rehearsal dinner. You are wonderful and your vision was so fun do document. We loved meeting everyone and hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed capturing them for you. And, a great big thank you to Lindsey & Bobby for allowing us to be a part of this very special time in your lives. You all have been so much fun to get to know and just be around since day one. We hope these photos serve as happy reminders for you, your family & friends and for future generations to come. Cannot wait to share the wedding pics with you…stay tune! Big love & hugs, C&A xoxo

Michaela & Wally’s Wequassett Wedding ~ Cape Cod Photographers

It’s been a while since our last blog post and I’m feeling a little guilty about that, but sometimes life gets so busy that something has to give. Happily, we’re back and with a super sweet wedding to share with you. You may remember Michaela & Wally from their winter engagement session back in January. Click HERE for a look.

We had so much fun with them that afternoon and had been looking forward to their Wequassett wedding with excitement and expectations that it would be a fun celebration of love, friendship and family. And, it was all of that and more! It was an absolutely perfect day….the kind of day you imagine when planning a Cape Cod wedding.

Here are just a few of our favorite moments from the day…

Michaela enjoying the make up process with the talented Lisa George.

Two different perspectives of Michaela’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. Love, Love love!

Something blue….cute shoes by Nina. So fun!

Meanwhile across the resort, Wally (far left) and his groomsmen, along with younger brother, Joe (middle), head to their room to get dressed.

Wally shows off his new cufflinks, with the longitude & latitude for where they said their, “I dos!” Awwww…too sweet!

Some pretty petals and sparkly bling…

Wally gives his brother Joe a best man gift. Gotta love some brotherly love!

Michaela’s gorgeous gown had buttons up the back, which required some major teamwork by her super sweet mom Gina, MOH extraordinaire Callie and super bridesman Sean.

Helloooooooo beautiful! Seriously, can we talk about her gorgeous green eyes? Stunning!

Wally & his boys…

We’re going to the croquet lawn and we’re gonnaa get maaaaried! Going to the croquet lawn of love….

Wally and his groomsmen, including his soon-to-be new brother Keenan, toast & enjoy a quick drink before the ceremony.  Kalson, they’re drinking soda…I swear.

Michaela was cool as a cucumber and yet as excited as a kid at Christmas…just love it.

Friends and family wait for the ceremony to begin…

First look….gotta love the tears welling up in Wally’s eyes and the absolutely beaming smile on Michaela’s face as she & her sweet papa Bob make their way down the aisle.

Love this moment….when all of the love & joy just becomes overwhelming…in THE best kind of way!

The look of love…

Sealed with a kiss and joy that’s just too much to contain! Be still my heart!

Wally’s mom, P.J.,  & sis, Stacey,  are equally as excited….yay for love!

Immediately after the ceremony Wally gets a big bear hug from his dad, Wally. Can we talk about the emotion on his face? It’s just too much! Love, Love, Love it! I think this is one of my favorite moments of the day.

A little alone time with our new Mr. & Mrs.

I love this time after all of the family photos are done, when we take our couple off for a few shots with just the two of them, and they have time to really soak in what’s just happened….it makes my heart smile.

The happy couple…

Love Wally’s expression in this next one…awwww shucks!

beaming…

snuggle time…

I thought this tree with friends’ & family’s fingerprints was such an adorable idea! Such a fun & colorful way to commemorate this special day!

Stunning flowers by Bob Sabatalo of Lily’s in South Yarmouth and a too-cute-for words cake by Delicious Desserts.

wedding guests steal a smooch….caught ya.

Michaela & Wally’s first dance was as fun as they are and totally set the tone for the night!

Michaela & Wally…thank you so much for choosing us to not only document this special time in your lives, but also to be a part of it! Your families & friends were so warm & welcoming to us. We had an absolute blast and wish we could do it all over again! For now, we hope these photos serve as happy reminders of all of the love & joyful celebration that surrounded you! With big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo
