“Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”
It’s 2009 at the Danversport Yacht Club. A few hundred high school seniors exit their limos sporting suits, gowns, and boutonnieres. Courtney & Mark, who had already been dating for a few years, spend their prom dancing the night away with all their friends before going away to college. Seven years later, they returned to that very ballroom to celebrate their marriage.
The sun was blazing at a scorching 96 degrees on August 14th. Courtney, accompanied by all her best friends dressed in blush, slipped into her wedding gown that would hold all her butterflies in. She wore her mother’s garter, and wrapped a piece of her mother’s wedding gown around her colorful bouquet. Mark and his boys got ready a few houses down, as he opened a gift and card from his wife-to-be.
Mark couldn’t help but shed a tear as Courtney walked down the aisle. They both said “I do” and hopped on a white trolley to Danversport Yacht Club. Grand chandeliers and gold and white details lined the ballroom - the space looked like a palace for for a new king and queen.
Courtney & Mark are loving, caring, and incredibly thoughtful. Thoughtful enough that I sat at a real table with real guests - nothing makes me feel appreciated and loved like being treated like a guest! Wishing you both the happiest marriage that is so full of love, you have extra to give to others.
Thank you to all the amazing vendors!
