Andrea & Dan // An intimate, oceanside wedding

“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”

Andrea & Dan are one of the most amazing couples I’ve ever met. I met the pair at Dan’s sister Stacy & Chris’s wedding last June - they had been dating for four years at the time, and a few months later in November, Dan proposed to Andrea on their first vacation to Disney World!!! *Insert Disney loving squeal here* They love going to the movies, taking trips into Boston to the theater, and leaving Italian restaurants with very full bellies. 

They planned to be married at the end of October, but Dan’s father’s brain cancer returned aggressively, so on a Wednesday, Dan called me up and told me they were getting married on that Saturday. Boy, was I glad that I was available. In three days time, Andrea bought a wedding dress, shoes, and jewelry, booked the church and reception at Seaglass Restaurant, got a marriage license and floral bouquets, Dan got his first suit, his sister did Andrea’s makeup, brother-in-law did videography, and the whole family gathered together for a very special and emotional wedding.

Andrea & Dan are so loving, grateful, humble, and put family above everything. Their happiness and optimism radiated on their warm, breezy May wedding day. Their marriage has certainly been blessed, and I wish the both of them the happiest life together. To Andrea, to Dan, and to family.
