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

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.

lindsey gets buttoned into her stunning Venus wedding gown by her super sweet mom, Cindy, & sister, Kirby. The handkerchief is one of her grandfathers, who sadly, passed away last year. Lindsey tied the handkerchief around her bouquet…such a sweet touch.

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.

xo

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
