A stunning June day, a beautiful bride, a groom so in love.
I loved spending the afternoon with the girls, watching them sing and dance around the hotel room, lacing up Kristen's beautiful dress. My second shooter Jenny had a super fun time with the groom's entourage playing cards, watching the World Cup, and toasting to the day ahead of them.
The terrace at the DeCordova was elegant and beautiful, with ivy running down the main building in the back and a stunning view of the lake behind them. I teared up at their vows, along with Kristin & Matt... they are so in love, and I laughed listening to the officiant tell the story of how they met and fell in love. One amazing kiss, and the two were happily now husband and wife, finally!
Then, it was KIMBALLS!!!! Being raised in Westford my whole life, Kimballs is just a staple, it runs through all us Westford kids' veins. Best ice cream, amazing farm and grounds, driving range, mini golf, bumper boats, country store, arcade... it's been built up to a pretty impressive amusement park of sorts. The wedding party and guests hopped off a school bus in the parking lot, all changed into casual clothes - with Kristen sporting an adorable dress of course. The reception was a non-traditional one - everyone had barbecue dinner at picnic tables, played lawn games, golfed, ate ice cream drenched in hot fudge and caramel, and splashed each other on the bumper boats. No first dance, parent dances, bouquet toss. It was so different and everyone was just having a blast. Two families having a big celebration, kicked back, relaxed, and enjoying every moment of it.
Kristin & Matt - although I am truly sorry to Matt that Lucky the Leprechaun could not marry you, I think your ceremony was beautiful, and maybe his green would be a little off from your green anyway. Your reception was a blast!!! You two are so in love, and it makes me so happy to think about the amazing years and adventures you'll have together. Keep laughing and keep eating ICE CREAM!
Thank you so much to the amazing vendors - and especially a HUGE thank you to my amazing second shooter Jenny Watts!
