Nicole & David said “I do!” with their closest friends & family gathered around, as the sun shone brightly and warm autumn waves lapped at the pristine shore behind them.
Late September is my favorite time of year here on the Cape. The bulk of visitors have gone home, the beaches are still busy, but it’s mostly locals coming out of their summer cocoons to enjoy a sunset dinner or a walk with their dogs. The air is cooler, but the sun still warms the skin. It is as if we get this beautiful place we call home back to ourselves….I know that sounds selfish, but I wish September would last forever.
Nicole & David’s wedding was the perfecting ending to my favorite month. Falmouth is home to this sweet couple, while they finish building their new home in CT. Nicole is a professional organizer at B.Organized and you could feel touches of her amazing organization skills all over the wedding. She is also an actress and model, and no stranger to the camera. And, the camera loves her….so do we! You can see more of her and David in their bello love session earlier this year…HERE.
Their wedding was so relaxed and so fun to photograph and we cannot wait to share a look at their day with you, so without further ado….
Sea inspired invitations….so cute!
David gets a little help from his brother Bruce on the porch of the Beach Breeze Inn, just before seeing his soon-to-be bride.
I love when couples choose to get ready together…there’s something very sweet, intimate and endearing about it to me. And, I love getting to be there to document it! David helps cut the hanger straps from Nicole’s dress and she helps with the new cuff links she bought him.
David opens the Tiffany cufflinks from his beautiful betrothed.
A few moments for a quick portrait before gathering with family for photos.
Heading to the beach….such joy!
And, beautiful anticipation….
Beaming, beautiful, breathlessly following love….
In your eyes, I see my future, my love….my forever….
LOVE the colorful parasols Nicole & David got for their guests.
Gathered in love & celebration….the prettiest place to make promises.
With this ring, I thee wed.
Ceremonies don’t always hold the attention of little boys….and thank goodness for that! LOOOVE!
The light was as bright as their shining love! Family & friends stood as witness, holding up the chuppah in a show of love & support.
Shiny, happy people Meet me in the crowd, People people, Throw your love around, Love me love me ~ REM
As a symbol of the new life they are creating in their union, David & Nicole asked guests to release butterflies.
Fly sweet monarch, fly into the clear blue sky.
And so their new life as husband and wife begins….
With a kiss and a snuggle….you are mine and I am yours.
We did it…..woooo hooo! (I remember this feeling from my own wedding. It was such a happy moment! And you can see the happy written all over their beautiful faces! Just love it!)
Letting one last butterfly fly free…..
Some snuggles from her adorable flower girls, Daniela & Jessica….such sweet peas!
As guests head across the street to the Inn, David & Nicole take a few moments on the beach to soak in the joy of the moment.
Happy. Happy. Happy…..
Side by side, and in your arms, is where I forever want to be.
This next photos makes my heart smile so big. Just love the happiness written all over Nicole’s gorgeous face!
Now back to the party for some merry making…
Love all of the colorful, beach inspired decorations and long, family style tables!
Nicole’s friends helped make and set up the beachy favors and decor.
A quick change to something more casual and our happy couple makes their entrance to the party….wooo hooo!
Eat Your Heart Out Catering provided Peruvian inspired ceviche in honor of Nicole’s family roots. Almost as delicious as all the love in the air this beautiful day!
Thumbs up for love…
Corn hole fun…
Some beach breeze lovin….
These two are so adorable together!
David’s children, Marc & Sandra, gave such a warm, loving toast to their dad and Nicole. It was playful and sincere and perfectly befitting their lovely dad & his new wife.
Reacting to the toasts….
For their first dance, it felt as if no one else was in the tent….so lovely.
Love the chunky sparkle that is Nicole’s signature look, as is that gorgeous smile of hers!
Friends & family were treated to an ice cream sundae bar courtesy of Smitty’s of Falmouth.
Love David’s expression as he’s dragged in to lead a conga line.
I don’t know why more couples don’t have day weddings….they provide more time to take in all that makes Cape Cod such an amazing place.
Big thanks to Walt, Don & Joyce at the Beach Breeze Inn for welcoming the wedding….we loved working there and would happily come back again, if you guys decide to do more weddings. 🙂 Thanks too to Steve & Liz of McVie Productions for helping coordinate things to run smoothly, and to all of the fabulous vendors for helping make for a perfect day for Nicole & David. We’d also like to extend a heart-felt thank you and big shout out to our friend & fellow photographer Amy Rader for referring Nicole to us! Big love!! And, the biggest thanks goes to Nicole & David….thank you both so very much for entrusting us with documenting your amazing wedding!! We have loved getting to know you both over the past year and look forward to seeing where the future takes you!! Until then, we hope these photos serve as happy reminders of this love-filled time in your lives and that years from now you might look at them and feel all of the joy & celebration as if it was the day itself! We cannot wait to share the entire collection with you and put together an album that highlights all of the love & goodness!! Until then….sending big thanks & love, C&A xoxo
