Our last wedding of the season could not have ended on a sweeter note than with the beautiful Heritage Gardens wedding of Kira & Adam. We first met these two lovelies back in July, when we photographed their e-session at Kira’s dad’s home in Centerville. We knew from our first chat via Skype that we would have fun with these two and they didn’t disappoint.

The fun and love was only amplified at their wedding last month. It was one of those idyllic fall days in October, when the air is cool, but not cold, the sky blue and friends & family were ready to celebrate! Their ceremony was held on the Flume Garden lawn, with the waterfall behind them, and birds still singing in the trees. It was perfection!

Surprisingly, this was our first time photographing a wedding at Heritage Museum & Gardens, but we sure hope it’s not our last….what an absolutely spectacular setting!!

Following the ceremony, guests walked up the path to a (heated) tented reception, just outside the Heald Center. And guests danced and delighted in the love & joyful celebration until late in the night.

The day started at the quaint Dan’l Webster Inn, where Kira & Adam each got ready separately. Dressed in a personalized robe, Kira gets the finishing touches on her make up by the talented folks at Beauty Muse Bridal. Hair by Cheryl Zercoe-Webb of Salon One in Wellesley.

Looking stunning in her Aire Barcelona gown and adorable custom-designed and initialed wedding flats by New Balance, where Kira works. Loooove that personalized touch!

Getting a little help with her veil and checking out the finished look….isn’t she lovely!

Beautiful Kira…

Lacey details and off to see her soon-to-be husband.

Love this next one as Kira spies herself in the car mirror as she gets ready to head to Heritage Gardens.

And, in another room at the Dan’l Webster, Adam finishes dressing and gets ready to meet his bride.

A little help from his sweet Dad, Allan…

And, he waits…..

For that first look….awww, love his open-mouthed expression of approval and appreciation! So cute!

Oh, the happy faces of love, how they do make my heart smile!

More happy….

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the  hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together.  For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow. ~ The Prophet

The light and intimacy of this particular garden was the perfect backdrop for portraits of these two…

Just so lovely….

Adam is such a tender gentleman with Kira. Loved how he grabbed her hand as they walked to join family.

And, after signing the Ketubah, they joined guests gathered for the ceremony on the Flume lawn. Oh how happy are these lovely faces. Adam flanked by his beautiful momma, Karen and dad, Allan.

I just love outdoor ceremonies. Guests always look so happy…..

Kira & Adam’s AHHH-DORABLE ring bearer, Collin, and flower girls (left to right) Emily, Talia, Madison & Zoe….all taking their jobs quite seriously. Too much cuteness!

More happy guest faces….as they watch Kira make her way to Adam…

I love when couples take a moment during the ceremony to look out at their family & friends and take in all of the love being directed at them. So beautiful…

With this ring, I thee wed.

Zoe decided mid ceremony that there weren’t quite enough petals scattered…much to everyone’s delight!

Another reason I love outdoor ceremonies so much is that they often inspire this…..

Kira’s smile is infectious and beautiful. Love her.

And with a kiss, it’s official….our new missus & mister!

Greeted with a standing ovation. Wooo hooo!

Loooove Adam’s expression and Kira’s reaction to him!!! Just love!!!

We did it!!!!

More happy…

Some pretty details, including flowers by Fancy Flowers and tent by Undercover Tent, with catering by the always fabulous Casual Gourmet.

The Horah is one of my favorite wedding traditions….so much fun and love and good times!

Reacting to toasts….

Cutting of the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cake, courtesy of the Casual Gourmet…holy deliciousness! And, the first dance.

Talia absolutely stole me heart…what a precious little girl. She was so attentive to her family, especially her great grandma, who she is dancing with here. Watching the way she looked at her and gave her such undivided attention just melted my heart and made me miss my own Grandma & Grandpa. This really is a special little girl! Love her!

Dancing with their flower girls….now, no pressure or anything meant here, but Kira & Adam would make amazing parents if that was something they wanted in their lives. These two are just so wonderful together and obviously have a lot of love to give. {Swooon!}

Sparkle-licious ending to a perfect day!

Kira & Adam, thank you so much for choosing to share this incredible day of love & celebration with us!! We hope you enjoy this sneak peek as much as we enjoyed being there to document all of that goodness!! You two are wonderful and we are so happy to have met you both and got to share in this chapter in your lives. We cannot wait for you to see the rest of the photos and look forward to seeing where life takes you both next!
