Beth & Andrew’s Wequassett Wedding ~ Chatham Photographers

A few weeks ago, on a picture perfect spring day here on Cape Cod, law school sweethearts Beth & Andrew said, “I do!” in a sweet church ceremony surrounded by friends and family, with a reception following at the beautiful ocean side Wequassett Resort. It was our first wedding of the season and THE perfect way to kick things off.

Beth & Andrew could not stop smiling the entire day…and their smiles, laughter and joyful celebration were completely infectious. I think the photos really say more than I ever could about just how amazing their wedding was and how much they and their family & friends enjoyed themselves, so I’ll keep this one brief and let the moments speak for themselves. Enjoy the love….

Beth gets a little help putting on her borrowed bling (a crazy gorgeous diamond necklace) from her super sweet friend & bridesmaid Alex. Beth got her and her girls special robes for their morning of getting ready together at Chatham Bars Inn. So cute!

Dressed in her stunning Modern Trousseau wedding gown, Beth gets her first look…..ga ga gorgeous!

Beth & Andrew exchanged cards the morning of the wedding. Watching them read the love-filled words was so sweet….smiles & happy tears….so lovely!

One of Andrew’s best men, Trevor, and groomsman, Tyler, joke with Andrew (in foreground) as the guys get ready for the wedding. People’s faces looked like this the entire day….so much happiness! Yaaaay for love and sharing one of the most important days in your life with your besties.

Hello beautiful Beth….Hair & make up by the talented team at Lisa George.

Andrew’s friend, Dan, wears his bow tie almost as good as the family dog, Teddy. I don’t know who’s cuter!

Hey fellas…off to a wedding? Yup…and looking pretty happy about it!

The girls, looking stunning and equally as excited, make their way to the church…is Beth glowing or what?!! Love it!!! A special shout out to Patrice Milley for the gorgeous flowers.

Co-Best Man, Jamie, hands out programs to some very happy arriving guests. See the theme here….HAPPY!!!

The groomsmen ready to greet guests. Love the moodiness of this next shot and the way the guys are gathered. You can just feel the excitement and anticipation.

Cheeky little look….just love it!!!

Pronouncing our happy couple officially married…..oh the joy!

And sealed with a kiss….and some more outrageously love-filled smiles.

Wooo hoooo…..we did it!! Beth looks back to her friends in celebration as she & Andrew leave the church, officially Mr. & Mrs.

To the Wequassett for some photos and cocktail hour canoodling.

The way these two are together is just so wonderful to be around.

Eskimo kisses…

Love. Love. Love….glorious LOVE.

Done with photos, our happy couple joins the fun at cocktail hour and is greeted with rousing applause. Andrew responds with his own good cheer. Too much fun!!

The setting sun on a most glorious day dusted the party with a little magic sparkle, enhanced further by the happy faces of those enjoying the celebration….

Moments like these are some of our favorites to capture….real life enjoyed with gusto!

These sassy shoes were begging to be photographed. And, more happy as displayed by Andrew’s gorgeous sister Kaitlin….

Yup….more happy!

Taaaa daaaaaa……

Andrew makes the cutest face when he gets overwhelmed by happy. He sticks his tongue between his teeth, as if to say, “How did I get so luck!” It really is delightful! He made this face a lot throughout the day, and most especially during his first dance with his new wife. Their sweetheart table was adorned with a post card, highlighting some places they visited last year in Italy. Oh, AMORE!!

Beth’s MOH and crazy sweet friend, Stephanie, delivered a wonderful, heartfelt speech, which obviously delighted Beth & Andrew…

And, Andrew’s besties, Jamie & Trevor did the same, throwing in a gooooood dose of funny, which delighted everyone, including Andrew’s lovely parents, Ann & Tom.

And when it was time to party, this group didn’t disappoint….I’m pretty sure this was a Journey song…..it always gets the same reaction, one we never tire of seeing!

Party on people…

To wrap up a perfect day, Beth & Andrew’s guests serenaded them with a lavender toss as they rushed to a golf cart and sped away into the night…..heavenly!

Beth & Andrew, thank you so very much for inviting us to be a part of such a special, wonderful, fun, happy, joyous, love-filled time in your lives. Your wedding was everything a wedding should be, and more. We absolutely loved being there with you, documenting all of the splendor & celebration. We hope you enjoy this little sneak peek as you await your proofs, and that these photos forever serve as happy reminders of the day you two became a new family. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

With big love & hugs, Chris & Andy 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
