Maia and Mike!

We think every wedding should have a cat and a canoe!

As we get ready to settle down into long cold nights of winter here in New England, I can't help but pine for the unbelievable weather Maia and Mike had this past summer on their special day. It was warm and breezy, the perfect summer day when Maia and Mike said "I do". Friends and family gathered around the happy couple at Crocker park in Marblehead, MA, where they enjoyed sweeping panoramic views of the harbor and Atlantic Ocean beyond. The no-frills ceremony featured a very tiny and fluffy wedding party of one: their cat! Mike and Maia planned a short and touching send off–via canoe–to honor Maia's late father who loved paddling along the North Shore's craggy coast. 

We were so excited to capture this gorgeous couple on this gorgeous day. Mike and Maia, we wish you all the best and hope these photos remind you of warmer times as you brace yourselves for the coming winter! Check out the full gallery here.

Elizabeth and Rae!

We photographed Elizabeth and Rae's wonderful wedding this past summer at the Arnold Arboretum. Everything was DIY, from the gorgeous home made cake by Elizabeth's mother (cut with, it must be noted, a machete!), to the classic New England lobster rolls. Rae did all of the menu planning (her food blog, Friends with Honey, is amazing!), and the flowers from Aster B Flowers went into vases made by Elizabeth's grandfather. The brides eschewed tradition, wearing J Crew bridesmaids dresses in graphite and poppy, riding the bus from the AirBnB house they rented to the park with a crew of friends and family in tow. A simple and intimate gathering of close friends and family followed the ceremony, and finished with a rousing game of Boggle. Congratulations to Elizabeth and Rae! It was an honor to document your special day. 

Matt and Lindsey!

Matt and Lindsey got married at the elegant Lanam Club in Andover, MA this past summer, and we were happy to capture this beautiful couple! The couple was low key about the wedding, but the affair was anything but casual. Matt and Lindsey were so relaxed the whole day... Until they hit the dance floor that is. Thanks for including us in your special day and congratulations to Matt and Lindsey! Click the photo to view the gallery, or just click here. For photobooth pictures, head over to the Facebook page.
