Sarah and Brett’s Chatham Bars Inn wedding last month was fall fabulous. The forecast had looked pretty dire in the days leading up to the big even, with rain coming down pretty heavy in the morning. But, as if Mother Nature herself had a stake in making sure everything worked out, the clouds dried out and Sarah & Brett ended up with a gorgeous, fall day…a tad windy, okay really windy….but it only served to carry this sweet couple’s beautiful love up into the heavens.
I met up with Sarah and her eleven best girlfriends at her parent’s home in Harwich Port, where the hair & make up and getting ready process was well underway, with everyone having a super fun morning. Chana Moung and her assistants did a fabulous job of giving all the girls stunning wedding day looks. Here Sarah gets her finishing touches.
And checks her gorgeous self out.
Before getting dressed, we jumped outside for a quick photo, where the girls had to hold tight to their robes, which made for lots of happy giggling faces. Love it!
Bridesmaid Ellen peeks in just before Sarah gets into her dress. Just love this candid moment as the gal pals share a giggle.
Getting into her STUNNING Romona Keveza gown with the help of her super sweet momma, Sandra and her best friend, Laura.
Just love how Sarah’s grandma looks on and takes in the gorgeousness of her granddaughter.
All buttoned in, Sarah gets a big hug from her bestie. Adorable!
That moment…when it hits you…it’s real and today is the day! LOVE IT!
My favorite part of Sarah’s stunning dress was the gorgeous handmade lace, off-the-shoulder jacket that was just insanely gorgeous!
A little last minute lip gloss and we’re off…
Love the reactions of her besties as they see Sarah coming down the stairs…
Taking some fun selfies on the trolley. When they weren’t snapping photos they were singing. Really enjoyed these super sweet, super fun ladies!
Across town, Brett got ready with his best mates. Love these few details of the day.
Impressively tying his bow tie for the day, Brett gets ready.
….with a little help from his friends, who clearly have a fun size. BAZOOKA!!!
Friends don’t let friends tie their own bow tie.
Enjoying a pre ceremony cocktail on the balcony.
With his jacket on, this handsome groom is ready to go…
Looking good, Brett!
Look out Sarah, he’s coming for you.
Looking very excited to marry her beau, Sarah enters Holy Redeemer Church in Chatham.
And on the arm of her proud Papa, Charles, heads down to meet her groom….who looks very happy to see his bride.
All smiles, all around.
By your side is where I always want to be.
Everything about this day and this couple was beautiful.
Taking in the warm words, prayers and marriage blessings of Father Sullivan.
The look of love….here we are, committing our lives and hearts to one another before family & friends and God. It doesn’t get much better.
With this ring, I thee wed.
Can we talk about her train and ridiculously beautiful lace veil. I’m obsessed!
That feeling of…..We did it!!! Wooo hooo!
Oh the beautiful joy written all over the beautiful faces of these two beautiful, lovely people.
Overcome by love & happiness…..Sarah & Brett steal a quick kiss.
And with a glass of champagne in hand, they’re now ready to paaaahhhhhteeeee!
But, first we steal them to head down to the beach for a few quick photos. We really like doing this, even if we do all of the family & bridal party photos before the ceremony because it gives our couple a chance to take in the significance of the day and have a few minutes to just BE…together, enjoying each other and soak in all the emotion of the day.
Being November, the sun was setting a bit earlier in the day, and casting the most gorgeous warm hues, which only served to compliment the warm smiles on these two lovely faces.
In your eyes I see my future…
These two….can you stand it?
Oh the joy…be still my heart!
And, with that, we headed back to the party.
What a view….what a day!
The Stars Restaurant was elegantly decorated with neutral tones…letting the stunning view be the main attraction.
White flowers are my favorites for weddings…it just doesn’t get much more elegant to me. Love the traditional Italian favors too: Five Chocolate Covered Almonds signifying five blessings for the happy couple.
More gorgeous details, including more flowers by Lilacs Florals.
Guests enjoying cocktail hour on the veranda.
Welcoming the new Mr. & Mrs. to their first dance…
Having fun and busting some serious moves.
…which delighted their guests.

Fun. Fun. Fun.
And more fun.
A dance floor fun of friends and family, and yet, it’s like no one else is in the room. Just love these two smitten kittens!
Sarah & Brett….thank you both so much for choosing us to document this very special day. We had so much fun with you both at your Boston engagement session and knew your wedding wouldn’t disappoint!
