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.

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

 

 

Kim & Jamie’s Wequassett Wedding ~ Cape Cod Photographers

Our first wedding of the season started as sweetly as we had hoped, with Connecticut cuties, Kim & Jamie. It was a perfect spring day at the gorgeous Wequassett Resort & Golf Club…the sun was shining, people were ready to have some fun and love was most definitely in the air.

We first met Kim & Jamie last summer, so the anticipation for their big day has been building for some time, especially after we got these two sweeties in front of our cameras for their love session back in October. Talk about fun. Click HERE for a look and more on their story.

As expected, the day was everything a wedding should be…and more. Kim & Jamie’s families & friends were so fun and there was no time wasted in getting the party started.

The day was filled with lots of sparkle….Including her crazy beautiful Monique Lhuillier dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. Mmmmmmmmm good!

Everyone was dressed to the nines. Here some of the guys in their Joseph Abboud tuxes take a quick peek at their reflections. Lookin’ good boys!

Kim takes one last quick peek before heading out to say, “I do!” Everything at the resort was in full bloom!

We just loooove it when our couples make time to see each other before the ceremony. It helps calm any nerves they might have and lets us get all the family & bridal party photos out of the way, so they can enjoy their cocktail hour. This next photo was taken after they had their “first look,” with family & friends there to share in the love.

While watching the slideshow we’d put together at the reception, I overheard one of the guests say this next photo, as captured by my crazy talented hubby, looked like something out of a magazine….call me biased, but I agree.

On the proud arm of her papa, Kim makes her way to her soon-to-be husband, who was doing everything he could to hold it together. Love when our guys get emotional!!!

The ceremonies at Wequassett don’t often take long, but the words spoken are full of love & lasting commitment…and the view? One of the best around!

Night Shift’s front man Ray Greene. Not only is he one of the sweetest (and dare I say drop-dead gorgeous) guys around, but he’s got some serious talent oozing out of every pour! He & the band absolutely rocked the night away and everyone was loving it! Even I was tempted to put down my cameras for a quick boogie!

Kim & Jamie, thank you so much for being so wonderful to work with; for welcoming us with open arms and for making us feel like part of the family. Even a few snags at the start of the day couldn’t dampen spirits or hamper all the fun! Getting to share all of it with you was such an honor and a pleasure! We love you guys and hope these photos serve as happy reminders of your incredible wedding day for many love-filled years still to come! With big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxo
